  1. Axle Tramp Fix

    Nice one mate glad it did the trick
  2. Manual Ute Traction

    It definitely does stiffen the spring a fair bit, it’s worth a shot but wil defs stop your tramp. How many leafs in your pack? I’m still on std 3582, have plans to send it to Procharge later in the year
  3. Manual Ute Traction

    So I went and bought 18x10's all round with 265/35r18 Front and 285/35r18 semi slicks on the rear, which helped a little but still spins like crazy in 2nd. After that I went to suspension city and had the 2nd bottom leaf taken out to soften the spring and raised 10mm (now 30mm from bumpstop) which helped a little bit more but still spins easily in 2nd when planted (you can roll into nicely but this is only on lowest possible boost making 326rwkw). Aware that under acceleration the axle touches the bumpstop slightly I actually took them off to see if it allowed the spring to compress more but actually reduced grip so I slapped them back on. It's annoying because the car isn't dumped by any means (340mm hub to guard front & 350mm hub to guard rear) and I see others with the same if not more low managing to hook with upwards of 400rwkw Some photos of the car: http://s261.photobucket.com/user/macadaca/library/FG F6 Ute?sort=3&page=1

  5. Koya SF01 18x10 All Round

    Just rolled guards? Also what sort of camber required?
  6. Koya SF01 18x10 All Round

    They’re hubcentric spacers had them on for a year with no issues, if the bearings go that’s not a massive problem. As I said the fronts clear everything, they do however poke out an extra 40mm over standard so it’s probably 15-20mm past the guard, so I could easily run a 255/40r18 with a little bit of guard work, but just reading on the net people tend think anything less than a 265 on a 10” wide rim isn’t the best idea

    Fg f6 ute, they clear brembos and suspension after a test fit just need a tyre
  8. Koya SF01 18x10 All Round

    So I picked up a 1 week old set for $800, 18x10 +20 Front and 18x10 +35 Rear with 35mm spacers on the rear. I already have 285/35r18 semis for the rear and sat flush with rolled rears when test fitting. My question is, as the fronts are wide as well, I could either go a 255/40r18 (too much stretch?) or a 265/35r18 (too wide for the front?) the car is lowered about 340mm hub to guard so I’m after some opinions before I go splashing on some tyres cheers
  9. Torque Twist

    Hey all, I'm wanting some clarification as to whether or not the ute chassis could suffer from some sort of torque twist? When giving it the beans sometime's it feels like the rear curls to the left and results in the steering wheel position to the left as if I'm counter steering.. A few mates driving behind me on different occasions say it looks weird as if the rear is twisting up under acceleration. The ute only has 55k and hasn't been in an accident and makes just over 500rwhp
  10. Manual Ute Traction

    Thanks @FiftyOne that's some good insight, I guess it's looks vs performance. Im going to try a set of wider rears and see if that works first then I guess I'll need to revise the suspension height if that fails. @camo86TI tried new revalved bilsteins, and different bushes etc which did nothing, half leaf got rid of it 100%, can accelerate and dump the clutch now and just spins compared to a trampoline like motion previously
  11. Manual Ute Traction

    Having traction issues with my lowered manual F6 ute. Tyres are still 245/35r19, when it wasn't lowered I had better traction as the rear could squat, however now its 50mm lowered with reset herrod leaf springs and an anti-tramp leaf on the top I just can't get traction in 2nd even only on the 98 tune with 327rwkw and new tyres. Does the stiff rear end reduce traction significantly? Might be worth checking out a wider rim/tyre I'm guessing Also broke the water pump pulley last night after being humiliated by a BMWs1000rr
  12. Billet Oil Pump Gears & Backing Plate

    Thanks for the response mate, I know takes a good day or two.
  13. Hi, Wondering if you guys can give me some insight as to the cost of labour to install the billet oil pump gears and backing plate I have on my manual F6? I know it's engine out or drop the K frame. And anyone reputable in Melbourne to do the job Cheers
  14. Modding Your Fg Xr6/g6E Turbo Take 2

    Hi mate did you find the problem? I'm having the same problems on my F6 manual ute
  15. FG F6 Ute kicks left

    My question is why does the car always tend to skip out to the left? Whether it be launching or a 2nd gear roll on, the rear always likes the left when traction breaks, it can be counter steered however. (Ute has a trutrac LSD and still tends to do it, although not as much as the stock LSD)
