Weekend maintenance

While the rest of the Feint Motion team was having a holiday down at the coast, I got my hands dirty getting some maintenance done on some local cars before the long weekends drift day.

After last weeks one and only Drift Australia event, there had a few problems with steering on the R31. It felt slow and lacked quick response. After checking out the car, we found the problem to be a worn tie rod end. The Skyline had been using R31 tie rods on the front S13 conversion, which doesn’t really fit very well. So, during the week S13 tie rod ends were ordered and fitted with some adapters that were purchased in a Group buy on the R31 Skyline Club.
