the rears were a pain to use due to the drum ebrake assembly, like the design of having basically a clip for the pads to do quick removal on them. I wish there was a nice 2/4 pot rear caliper with integrated handbrake that we could use on our car easily, would switch from the drum brake for weight savings alone.

Yea. The larger diameter rotor works like leverage. You can read it in this link.

Do you know the weight difference between the TT rotors and the bigger units?

I will be doing the altima rears. I do not feel like frigging with the ebrake setup.

The only difference between rotors is the thickness and weight. They used the brakes throughout the years for on both models.

Part Number: 31126
Weight: 17.26 lbs
Brake Rotor/Disc Bore Diameter (mm): 68.3
Brake Rotor/Disc Initial Thickness (mm): 30.23
Brake Rotor/Disc Outside Diameter (mm): 280.399999
Brake Rotor/Disc Overall Depth (mm): 53.6

Part Number: 31125
Weight: 18.54 lbs
Brake Rotor/Disc Bore Diameter (mm): 68.069999
Brake Rotor/Disc Initial Thickness (mm): 26
Brake Rotor/Disc Outside Diameter (mm): 280

as far as i have read the z33 e brake cable are just the right length to fit with the z32 setup on your s13's but idk for a fact im just really anal about my car I really like things to match and plus the easiness of changing pads are really appealing thats the main reason why im sticking with my rear z32 calipers

the z32 cables work on the s13, unlike the skyline cables that work on the s14 only

Got my baby running again. Got the starter in today and after dinner, starter to modify the starter to work with z32 tranny. The way the car starts now is crazy like it is on steroids. I went to a friends house for some beer and took a video when coming home.

Hopefully tomorrow I can get some s14 seats to put in my car and get rid of those cheap seats. I am glad to be able to drive my baby again.

Here is a new video of the starter in motion. This one cranks way faster. Couldn't be happier. Now just to find some good 275/40 and 235/45 tires.

I went and put some s14 seats in the car. I sprayed them black because I hate the design. I need to finish the passenger seat. I ran out of paint. They feel better than those cheap eBay seats I had in their.

Both of my cars do the same thing. It is the gauge sensor, it has a crappy metal tab for the harness. It is one wire. The metal tab comes loose from the sensor and rattles around, making it lose connection. I was just going to put some solder in to fill the gaps.

I want some Recaro's but expensive as well. These were free so they fit right into my budget.

Yup. In one of my videos, someone commented on that or possibly on here. It is one of those things that you know it is fine but it still worries you. When I first noticed it, I was doing WOT pulls which scared me even though the temp should rise rather than drop.

sensor fix is easy. snip the end off that sucker feed a little wire through tj=he hole and solder it then install regular male female connectors ( i like the round ones) on the new end and the old and no more loosy goosy.
Granted you can try to squeeze the stocker with pliers for a tighter fit

So I been driving the car all day. It is fun and feels good with the S14 seats. I just came back in from the garage setting up my e-Fans. I have it set to turn on at 185 and shut off at 175. I am just testing now to see how quick it will cool it down then adjust my settings.

I know right. Oh well, at least my fans won't be on all the time. It is actually a good test to see how fast she will warm up and operating temps in the cold.

It was great last night. Windows open and awesome weather this morning. I wish it would stay like this until April.

I am too. About raping the streets, I went to get corn for $3.26/gal Sunday. When I was leaving, there was this Audi 2.0T. He kind of gave me a look like ricer. So I was behind him getting on the turnpike and I see his exhaust get greyish/black. I was in second and just stomped it as well. I was on his tail in third and changed to 4th just to slow down. He pulled to the right and I just left in 4th. He never came back. This was at 10psi.

I want to upgrade my WG to a 1 bar spring and get my 1600cc injectors. So I will probably have it like, 14, 20, and 25psi.
