Carbon Fiber Wing Blade...



Nooo, I've not neglected her. It's just I haven't been doing anything to her lately so there has been no updates...

Not long after she got a second round of mapping at ST Wangan by Mr. Jun Furukawa, I realized that the gear lever was feeling a bit loose. Much like those old arcade Daytona machines where the gear lever has lot's of free play. A trip back to the garage and they told me my bushing has been worn out. I don't understand how this can happen as it's not like I use the car everyday and I don't shift hard. I mean, my friends who drive older GT-R's do not suffer from this.

Puzzled, I asked if they could replace it. I was suggested to have a bushing custom made in higher quality material as they didn't know where to find one. The damage to my wallet would set me back around RM150 bucks! All for a small bushing! Hell no...



So, I went searching online for it and bought an OEM bushing. Turns out they are the same for a range of Nissan models. It's part number 32861-H7301. I got it for a mere RM4. Yes, you read that right, RM4. Like, what the fuck right!



Installed it and now gear shifts are tight now. Feels like a brand new car.

Also, this was installed recently. A carbon fiber rear wing blade...



Thank you Mr Sushiman... ;)

Raimie,
Thank you again, you're too kind. Well, I've kinda slowed down on the modifications. Perhaps a couple more things before I completely stop. We shall see. Looking forward to seeing your ride too. Feel free to share! ^_^
