Godzone! Index of my Car pagesGodzone!

General, non-car index HERE

My automotive pages are fairly well known around the world, so I have a separate index for just the car section to help you navigate around them.

My Cars  My fleet of Toyota's; road, race, and rally cars. Also a couple of pics of my Dad's Ford Falcon turbo and his Subaru WRX Imprezza.

My Racing Car  A detailed story of how it's put together, and its repair.

My New Racing Car  An on-going pictorial record the Mallock Mk31's slow arrival into the world.

My Rally Car  The long term project of squeezing a way-too big engine with stupid amounts of power into a small car, and turning it into a 4WD gravel weapon.

My Toyota AE-86 Sprinter  My best road car, and its various modifications.

My Toyota KP-61 Starlet  The only RWD Starlet in Australia, I think. Lots of mods planned for this one as well. More details on the engines for it now, too.

My Fraser Clubman  Arrived in Australia in May 2003, on the road in mid 2005.

My Honda VTR1000 Firestorm motorbike My black one litre bike.

Other Cars  Pictures of other people's cars, from all over the world. Some rather odd & exotic ones here.

A drive in a Formula One racing car  By one very lucky journalist. Makes for great reading.

The Merdeka Millennium Endurance race of Malaysia My experiences in running in that race in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.

The 2007 Nürburgring 24 Hour Endurance Race My drive in the greatest touring car race in the world.

The 2008 Bathurst 12- Hour Race My drive at the best track in Australia.

Suggested businesses and/or people to buy car equipment off  These are all people that I know personally, and can recommend that you buy your performance gear from.


Car Tech Section

I'm also very interested in what makes car's tick, so I've done a lot of research - and a few years of practical work - in finding out how to get the most out of your car. I'm happy to pass most of it along, and so have written some comprehensive pages on how to do it. There's a fair few so-called 'racers secrets' which I'm happy to pass on as a lot of them are very basic and should be known by all.
Also, if any race team managers are reading this, I've deliberately left out a few of the more tricky things - I can't give away all my secrets!

Engines  I cover performance engine mods, and the best way to do them.

Suspension  I cover the basics, and how to get better handling.

Drivetrain  I cover gearboxes, diffs, tail shafts, brakes, etc. How to close ratio a gearbox, and so on.

Why a four valve head is so much better than a two valve head  ... and why push-rod engines are landfill!

The Toyota VVT system Vs the Honda V-Tec system  A description of how each system works.

The Toyota 4AGE twin cam engine  A description of the standard engine, what's good and what's bad.

How to modify the Toyota 4AGE engine  ... and get up to 500hp from it.

The Toyota AE-86 Corolla  Covers just about all the different versions

Suggested Reading & Racing Car Sounds Some of the best books I've found, and also some of the best sounds.
