Update: 03-Dec-2013: Popped in today to chat with Cameron about the colour scheme... Still undecided on what colour we will do the lips/skirts/wing etc.. I am sure I will work it out sooner or later :P The wheels REALLY are crying to be replaced ASAP now.. Both sets of wheels on order are unfortunately showing no signs of arrival yet :( Anyway, onto the pics.. 

 

The foglight recess is not quite how I wanted it yet, so that may need to be remade.. Wanted the foglight to sit perpendicular to the ground.. Will see what happens..

Update: 18-Dec-2013: Car has now been primed and then subsequently painted. I checked on it today, but have changed my mind and decided I am going to change the colour of the car slightly (much to Cammo's annoyance, as the paint job on it is done really nicely, almost a shame to sand it off and start again lol), watch this space, next year should show some nice changes   :) Purchased some of Luke's old bits, and he was kind enough to drop off the Greddy exhaust, and I can't wait to hear it    :D  Also the Tial BOV and wastegate have arrived, in purple/pink, Koyo alloy radiator (available to purchase from us as we have 3 spares!), and the Seibon Bonnet (also available to purchase through us, we have 1x spare).

Update: 20-Jan-2014: 

 

 

OK, the latest updates bring mixed news.

 

1) The wheels from the USA (Forgestar flow forged 19x11) have arrived, but despite my best efforts, they came in 5x100 - I'd wanted to change them to 5x114.3 (was planning on running Subaru STi hubs), but they'd stated it was too late and they'd already started making them.. Which was weird, because it still took another 3 months after they said this, for them to arrive.. Go figure..

 

2) The wheels from Concave Concepts, which I'd originally also wanted to change to 5x114.3, but due to Forgestar refusing the change stud pattern - I said let's stick with 5x100... When they arrived though they were 5x114.3 and the wrong offset... Meaning that I currently have to run a conversion spacer to make them fit. Not ideal, but I guess it is a blessing in disguise, as I could potentially sell them to a GTR owner being a common stud pattern.

 

3) Unfortunately the CC rims don't have sufficient recess for the conversion spacers to allow the studs to countersink, which means I need to further modify the rims.. When we tried to bolt them up, they were pushed out an extra 6-7mm due to the way the factory studs protruded into the rear face of the rim..

 

4) It's possibly due to the extra offset caused by the wheel not sitting flush with the spacer, or the attempt to run extremely large tyres on the front (height is actually the same as stock, but width is like 8cm wider tyres), but they don't clear the oil cooler or rear of the front wheel arch.. When the wheels are modified, we will see where they sit, and whether we need to alter the offset further... It's possible we should have gone with 9.5 on the front instead of 10... We will update on this later in the week..

 

5) Rear offset probably could be even more aggressive, maybe need -5 to -10mm on the back, and +5mm to +10mm on the front - we will update on this later in the week. 

 

I guess nothing ever quite goes to plan, but here are some pics of the latest updates.

 

Here's the Forgestar ones (19x11 and 19x9.5). Hard to tell but they are massive concave.

IMG_7410.jpg

 

 

Here's the Concave Concepts loaded into the SUV, transporting them to Cameron's bodyworks (18x11 and 18x10 with 295/30/18 Advan AD050 tyres)

 

IMG_7411.jpg

 

 

Above to remove the old 19s:

 

1522575_10203120664640239_938888581_o.jpg

 

 

Comparison of the old vs new. The new is actually a smaller rolling diameter, but wider footprint (by far):

 

1548036_10203120664440234_749810336_o.jpg

 

 

Here you can see the new 18x10 fouls the oil cooler. We will work on a solution to this later.

Here is a pic of where the stock studs foul the rear face of the rims:

And now some various pics showing the current setup, though it will be changing again soon..

Anyway, as I mentioned previously, time to start choosing a new colour.. Undecided yet :P

I am simply in awe of what this is becoming, lol.

 

Given the weight of the car and the width of these tyres will you be doing any runs in the wet, as I am a little concerned for you with aqua-plaining.

 

Otherwise a magnificent beast and one I am looking forward to see in person one day.

Well definitely not white, do something unique, after all that work it would be a waste to just make it a colour that come stock.

Maybe one of those House-of-kolor colours? 

or .. Aventador Orange? even Green'd look good on that, but that very light pearl version of green with a yellow pearl under it.

Thanks to Cameron's Bodyworks, the rims have been modified to suit. Special thanks to Koya Australia for modifying the rims to shave off an extra 4mm so they fit the fronts.Also big thanks to Bridgestone in Coopers plains for fitting and balancing the rims up for us.

Here's a few pics of the beast in it's current state.. The GTR has some competition for the 'fattest car award'  :D

Update: 04-Mar-2014: 


 


Another visit to Cameron's bodyworks has seen the diffuser being further modified to accommodate the factory reverse/fog light combination lamp (which will of course house the Valenti unit). This has been a massive task in itself.


 


The new colour still hasnt been decided upon, but we should have updates on that this week :D

The color has finally been chosen, but we won't be uploading pics of that until it's finished. Here you can see the poor thing looking rather naked, stripped off once again of all it's paint, and rubbed back, ready for the new coats.

The diffuser underwent yet more modifications to fit in with my fussy requests, much to the annoyance of the guys doing the work I am sure - Yep I am one of *those* customers.. Needed it perfect  :)

With a "bit" of massaging, cutting and welding, Cameron's bodyworks was able to fit the monster wheels and tyres inside the guards... Even at full lock - which for rims and tyres this wide, is quite an achievement!

We also have to thank MOTEC for suggesting the use of their new M150 ECU which is a complete plug and play unit. Also will be using the Motec Lambda wideband and controller. Not the cheapest solution out there, but it most assuredly is the best! 


 


post-2-0-97565900-1398331258_thumb.jpg


 


Thanks to 86Worx for the Cyberstork dashboard. We will be using these in conjunction with Cyberstork alloy gauge rings and needle bases. Will look awesome!


 


post-2-0-56445100-1398331165_thumb.jpg


 


The alloy upgrades will look like this pic, but obviously with the black/blue gauge face behind it.


 


 


post-2-0-18671000-1398331229_thumb.jpg


 


We also have received the delivery of CF dash parts.


 


 


post-2-0-51477100-1398331140_thumb.jpg


 


A flat bottom wheel has arrived also, thanks to ProSpeed Racing.


 


 


As the date to actually get it all assembled nears, our pile of parts has grown - including the GFB lightened pulley set (Thanks GFB!), RPS carbon clutch (thanks to MVP Motorsports) and a pair of subwoofer enclosures from Bayside Autostyling.

post-2-0-22458300-1398331471_thumb.jpg


 


The subwoofer boxes will enclose a pair of Hertz 10" subs.


 


 


The engine will be taking a different direction as well, with a twin charge setup (turbo and supercharged). We expect the power output to be around 600hp, so we will be pushing a bit harder now  :)


 


Working alongside Forged Performance, the engine bay should end up looking something like this..


 


post-2-0-19698600-1398331255_thumb.jpg


 


 


 


As always, massive thankyou to all our sponsors and project contributors! We can't wait to get this beast on the road!


 


Don't forget that most of the parts listed in this build are available from us at http://www.streetfx.com.au or just mail us at [email protected]  :)
