Just calling out whilst were all into Football I don't see anything much on any car buffs, be it your own pride and joys, there is a F1 thread but nothing on Supercars for eg or other races OS ?
Yes I am a car nut from way back, originally a Mechanic then Specialist in Brakes and Suspension then slid into the family business in the Automotive Aftermarket.
I used to punish my cars now I admire them.
Have spent alot of time getting good product to detail and having wife 3kids the only time you can grab many late nights in the man shed.
I/we attend many Supercar rounds incl Bathurst.
Bathurst I'm there near on every year due to business, love the place.
Supercars is another sport struggling due to many things, one the owners, maybe their friends with Lowy.
F1 I love - well the modern changes and rulings are effecting "racing" per say, as in most sports.
Many forms of racing grab my eye.
Avid Motogp Motorcross and Speedway watcher as well - hence why Fox is valuable to me not just for Football.
So whats your fancy and do you have a car you cherish ?

+ excuse the spell error in thread title.

I miss the old Jap 90s two door coupes. The series 4+ RX7 and TT 300ZX are probably my all time faves.  The RX7 in particular holds is styling really well, it is still one of the best looking cars out there. The 300ZX is just pure horsepower greed and shameless styling.  Sports cars these days are sucky by comparison.

Couldn’t give a fug about V8, Bathurst or F1.

Love V8 sound, C63's to die for, Clevo/Windsors etc.......
Yer Godzilla is a beast ! came close buying one some years ago.
Talking Jap and yes agree RX7's were a brilliant machine but loved RX4's and earlier for me, 240/260Z's !
These late GTR's are weapons.
i30N way better than a Tucson thats for sure depending the needs.

Well considering  the tuscon is the family  car it has to do atm. The 130n will be the toy.  Loved the fd3s  rx7 which is the panther silhouette one.  There was one of the rare z spec gtr r34 in oz a couple of years back . Dunno if they sold it but it was a beast.

Absolute car nut myself. Always been into them since I was a kid and work as a Design Engineer at PWR Performance Products for a living specialising in the our motorsport side of business (F1, MotoGP, Le Mans, etc.) and fucking love it. Got a VW Bora for a daily which isn't anything crazy but I adore it all the same. I can appreciate almost anything with an engine, but Euro/Jap/Aussie stuff most of all. Follow most forms of racing and did karting as a kid, was great fun :)

Cheers, can vouch for it as a good place to work at too. Certainly impressive what he's done that's for sure. Roland is best left not discussed entirely 😅

Nice, The Bend looks like a cool track. From what I've heard it's very flat so not as visually impressive but at least you can see all the action.

I'm a two bucket kind of guy but have lots of mates who snowfoam. I'm big into Bowden's products these days, best off-the-shelf stuff I've used (especially the wheel cleaner).

My cousin is a professional detailer for Honda and he uses and recommends snow foam to me. But he did if u only do a normal hand wash with the two bucket method under shade itll be just as good .  Bowden's is the best product I've come across. Aussie made to  boot  too.  Been getting into detailing my car and my wife's more and more due to me watching stauffer garage .

No worries.
Bend impressed me today.
As good as PI imo and probably better due to having the Rydges hotel right in front of the track for those well off people but it makes for getting good coffee inside and some nice static car displays.
I checked on the overnight cost during the supercars, $950 a night King room and $1400 a night Executive room, lol......
Track is top and Pit facilities very good, those private owners have done a great job.

yes I'm into it - 2 bucket method definately on my 2 pride and joys.
Yes have snow foam as well, actually is the Bowdens one.
Have their big green micro fibre towel and bought a number of their products knowing Dan.
TBH some is good some not, just depends what your colour car is and some products pop better than others.
I've always found not every brand has the best finish your after so once I use x brand I try another and may get better result.
I have quite a few friends far more into it than me so I listen to them and watch links they send me.
Heck even some of Meguairs product is still good I find.
Apart from buying a bit of Bowdens I've used this crowd for other brands waxit.com.au that many Enthusiast friends buy from.
Zaino is good I find and Menzurna "pops" metallic finish's to me.
I'm about to buy my first buffing machine and pads, been scared to use one but now I'm feeling confident enough fingers crossed.

Cousin recommended me some products they use at Honda as their professional grade products but will cost a lot due to them being only for "trade"   refract I've heard good stuff about.  Also with the buffing machines there are pros and cons in both orbital and  the  rotary buffers.

Refract I've heard of too, but yes it wouldn't be cheap I would guess. Funnily enough I still go between some brands at times and I still go for Meguiars Wash and Wax (yellow one) on my VW as it has always left a good result. 

Don't be too scared about buffing, just let the tool do the job - the biggest mistake is too much applied pressure I find. Then just choose a good buffing compound and polishing cloth after that. It'll be easy as pie. Don't forget the wax! :)

Agree. The biggest thing is not to apply to much pressure. Also clay barring or clay Mitt before the buffer will work  a treat.

yes agree fellas, no need to apply pressure with the buffer, just let the pad do its job and the product.
I'm arranging my order this week.

ChrisAUFC re car wash, agree yer thats the Ultimate Wash N Wax and have used it, pretty good.
I really like their previous one Soft Wash Gel, its pink and so very soapy and smooth.

Yep that's the one! Been using it nearly 8 years now and paint still looks factory fresh. 

Gotta do some servicing on the VW soon, I tell you what there are few things that grind my gears more on modern cars than these pesky "sealed" automatic transmissions 😠 I just want a dipstick to change my transmission fluid with ease instead of having to measure out the old fluid every time!

One thing I hate about newer cars is that they make it look so difficult to service your own car , because one wrong move you wouldve disabled something electrical.

Christ don't get me started on that too 😅 My mate used to be a mechanic at a VW dealership and saw it every day. Special tools to do routine tasks, diagnostic system lock-outs if you didn't have the right software.. The list goes on.

Dont get me wrong technology   can be beneficial to cars. But it can make working on cars difficult . If I wanted to upgrade say my air filter I have modify my maf sensor to make sure my ecu doesnt mess up something

Yep, for all its benefits that we all know about it does make simple things difficult. Like you said something as simple as a high flow air filter can throw out the sensor's operating range. Although to be fair I seem to have gotten lucky with the K&N panel filters in that regard, no issues for 7+ years. But obviously if you wanted more power you need a better setup and tune, along with the MAF issues you said - it's a fun and expensive world..

Yep, for all its benefits that we all know about it does make simple things difficult. Like you said something as simple as a high flow air filter can throw out the sensor's operating range. Although to be fair I seem to have gotten lucky with the K&N panel filters in that regard, no issues for 7+ years. But obviously if you wanted more power you need a better setup and tune, along with the MAF issues you said - it's a fun and expensive world..

My old Mazda had a panel filter which was fine. But before I got the k&n panel filter I got a cold air intake. Had to return the cai as it messed up my ecu and Mazda did charged me . Never again
