Well after designing a little kit I got round to start fitting today, I dont know what metal they make these cars from but only a very expensive cobalt drill bit would touch it !!!! Yup I broke it so second Ll will be fitted tomorrow and temp wired in Tuesday as im getting a friend to do some electrical trickery so that a hidden switch turns the horn into the activation button, anyway heres some pics, if more guys in the UK drag raced I would think about putting a kit together.

Basically we are going to replace this pipe with the solenoid

Heres the kit im using I had the pipes made, stainless hose with clear coat, fittings into solenoid are tapered so I also used PTFE tape to help seal, the swivels are on the other end and adaptors screw into original fittings

First undo pipe from splitter block Nissan kindly used and block off with pipe fitting sealed to lose as little brake fluid as poss
Posted Image

Then remove pipe and bolt solenoid in place
Posted Image

Fit adaptors into block and flexi hose and attach the pipes from solenoid
Posted Image
Posted Image

I used the 10mm bolt in the splitter block to earth the solenoid and pushed the +ve lead up thru the grommet where the brake pipe comes thru the inner wing, ive taped it to battery till I wire it later

Heres a pic of how it looks with wheel off

And a pic with the wheel on full lock

Cant wait to get the other side done, I run a syvecs AWD controller but a switch can be fitted to turn the car RWD only al be it in limp mode but thats fine for a burn out at the strip and as soon as car is switched off and restarted its back in 4WD

I cant believe the amount of guys with far more powerful GTR's runing rear slicks and doing rolling burnouts that dont get enough heat in them that have $100,000 + builds and dont run a line lock, i might put this kit on Ebay

How are you getting around the fact that there is mechanical preload on the front ets and will burn through pretty quick? I remember buschur was working on something like this but ditched the project.

My friend has been driving his 650 hp GTR for over a year in the same RWD mode, he drifts it everywhere so much so its been confiscated by the police 3 times, hes also done over 20 trackdays inc the Nurburgring which he does in 7.30 and his TTS is still perfect, im pretty sure the amount of strain a few burnouts each year will do pales into comparison!!! However if you want to go drag racing EVERYTHING is going to wear out !!!! If I compete in some events I go as RWD prop off so in essence there is nothing for the TTS to turn, I have another friend was running 750 ft lbs thru a stock box and launching it hard it took 6 months to break it, its not doing anymore damage than a AWD controller, what it does do is allow you to get enough heat into a pair of slicks which is a lot more than a pair of drag radials, so all the cars doing big rolling burnouts are doing the same to their TTS but not achieving their goal.
If I take 10,000 miles off my TTS I dont care I bought the car to drag race, Mile race and do trackdays, as things break I fix them and make it so they dont.

Hi Johnny - I fitted line lock to front and have the RWD switch, but when I try and do burnout its like its not putting any power to the ground?

 

Is there anything else I need to do ie: with abs or traction control etc?

Obviously you should turn traction control off. Make sure you have the correct brake lines running to the solenoids. In the pic they are the ones with fittings only without lines connected. To do a burnout push the brake pedal, press and hold or turn on your switch. Then release the brake pedal and don't touch it until after you release the line lock switch. It will work.
