  1. Past hour
  2. I don't understand - WHY does diff oil smell so bad? Gun oil = Good smell Diff oil = Oh god get that sh*t off me smell
  3. Yea I think it might be the way to go. Just bite the bullet and accept that its the best to get the wire from 🀣
  4. Be careful Big difference in cable material. You want tinned copper not CCA. 2G from Jaycar $17. Just buy that at least you know its the correct stuff. Its only about $100
  5. Today
  6. Replacing 20yo+ fine-spline diff centre/oil in the Torana - can still smell it.
  7. Getting there!! I've found the 0 Gauge wires in my research but not been able to find the 2 Gauge. For my setup 0 gauge wire is way overkill, not to mention an b$@tch to install
  8. Ooops - didn't read More like these? https://www.amazon.com.au/s?k=KnuKonceptz&ref=bl_dp_s_web_0 https://www.amazon.com.au/KnuKonceptz-Kolossus-Gauge-Amplifier-Installation/dp/B005CIJBKK/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=KnuKonceptz&qid=1558587317&s=gateway&sr=8-2
  9. If I were doing the speaker wire sure, not quite sure it'd work as power wire though πŸ˜‰
  10. These any good? https://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/speaker-wire.htm Have used Cable Chick for other cabling needs with no issues
  11. well im farked off that im getting farked on by stupid government cawks. That better?
  12. Filthiest day at work - dropping the starter motors out of Cummins powered Kenworths. Filthiest day at home - probs fitting up power steering to my old XT ute. Filthiest evening.....
  13. two amps, will be running around 1500W combined output. I've done many installs for car systems and I get pretty pedantic about it. They've all been family and friends cars with relatively low budget builds. So buying the "amp wiring kits" was always fine. Mine however is gonna be a bit different and I want to it right. I've done the calculations, and you're right. 4 gauge in theory would work for my system but its on the edge. To be safe I'm going 2 or 1 gauge wire to a Power Distribution block and splitting it from there in the boot area to 4 gauge for each amp. Got a main fuse going in the engine bay, and 2 more fuses for each amp. Being fairly high end amps, the power to them needs to be "clean". OFC wire for this is the way to go.
  14. When I was doing my HepRenTichip we had to wire up an extra switch for the bucket on an SAPN (power network) truck.... Dirtiest I ever came home... until I started dating J@
  15. have never bought Oxygen-Free-Copper cables; so I wouldn't be able to help, specifically... but if you're not going to be running a ridiculous amount of amps for a long period of time (e.g. the heat factor etc in the wiring), I don't think it's worth purchasing it at all, over conventional amp power wires. I think 2 gauge is more than enough and hard enough to install, let alone 0 gauge which I've installed a couple of times, too... my sound system is already too loud in my car for reasonably long periods of listening (more than 6min) and it's only on 4 gauge power wiring
  16. Hey all, Prepping the rig for a fairly big audio upgrade. Bought subs already, got the kayhan audio icc (mainly for its RCA outputs and awesome snr, thd values). Will be getting alpine type r speakers all round, amps still tbd as I'm negotiating price deals on them. Anyway, that's not the point of this thread. I am looking into getting some wire for the install, specifically 2 gauge and 4 gauge OFC wire. Really struggling to source this wire from aus at decent prices. Wondering if anyone here can help out or know of any place to get power wire from? Pls do not mention jaycar, I know they sell it but its not the best and the price is a little steep. Cheers all!
  17. Used to be an auto spark, worked on lotsa stock floats.....got shat on fixing those stinkin piles a lotπŸš› πŸ‘ πŸ’©(emojis for clarity)
  18. I'm feeling really pissed on?
  19. No, not really - it's old, low res and power hungry. TBH I don't even know if it will be any good lit up as it will shine upwards - may end up being useful as a tracing table or just as a cool but completely useless project. I figure at worst, it'll be a nice solid smooth heavy desktop space.
  20. do you actually plan to use the plasma as a screen as well as a desk?
  21. Just once I wanna hear someone be like.... I’m in a farrked on mood today.... like it’s that sh*t I’m not even farrked off im farrked on!!! Kinda like being sh*t on... but with farrk brain me work good today not much so
  22. its a ford, just hit it and it will work for a bit
  23. Farked off mood today!!! Afternoon all
  24. Well. Skid Factory too... Water cooling would be a fun project but I need some deskspace. Am actually thinking of building a workbench/office desk out of an old 42" plasma TV - it still works (just, blown caps so shes a little iffy) so could even light the thing up for extra mood. Have looked around to see if anyones done anything similar but have only found infinity-type coffee tables made from old plasmas. Anyone here got thoughts on this?
  25. typical "safety" getting in the way of fun 😞
  26. I hope this doesn't spell the death of Racewars as I quite liked going https://thewest.com.au/news/albany-advertiser/cams-slams-fatal-racewars-event-ng-b881207403z I was hoping to go as a competitor next year if I get dads affairs sorted in time. I haven't been on the forums or social media for months what with sorting out dads stuff and moving our company to it's new home in Subiaco, so I don't know if it ever made the news of the dad saying the son had swapped cars, which I don't see as being a failure on Racewars part.
  27. lol. want 35 inch screen to watch MCM and Cleetus. I am sure that 950GTX will handle it with some extra boost. Then you need some water cooling as well.
