  1. Newfound love for Renault Sport

    Beautiful DC2R and S14. Great machines, a DC2R needs to make its way into my garage one day. Mate of mine might end up in an S chassis soon and I'm looking forward to giving it a spin. That said a 250 cup trophee should make a perfect replacement! Will be an excellent daily driver for you and before long you might even get a 172 to share the driveway
  2. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    Did a quick browse of the forums: Keepitlow's thread is pretty photobucket heavy: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/topic/27786-keepitlows-15-rs265-cup-premium-pic-heavy/ This one as well: http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/topic/23017-uk-200t-owner-saying-hi/&tab=comments#comment-471366
  3. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    I found this script that has been made specifically for rehosting photobucket images on imgur, and updating forum posts in the db: https://github.com/pastudan/photobucket-imgur I've looked into the code and it looks like a pretty elegant bit of coding and nothing malicious to worry about. Essentially : run a db query to scrape all posts with photobucket links and output to a file posts.txt run convert.js to do all the rehosting and generate a mapping file run replace.js to update db as per mapping file Obviously need a linux machine to run the script and a backup db to test replace.js on before running on prod db. Hope that helps!

    From putting together a quick script on my laptop just now, I reckon it wouldn't be particularly hard to write something like that but would require someone with direct read/write database access to scrape it for all photobucket links and whether our database host would permit direct access or not is a different matter. A Rails or Python script can easily pull the direct photo link out of the photobucket hosting page, upload it to imgur and update the database record with said imgur link.

    The recent activity / unread posts is a fickle beast, so few things show up on the timeline (for example I've seen none of the recent posts in this thread show up). Going by it there's been 6 posts today forum-wide, but dig through the forum and there is way more than that. Odd

    Yep. Likely an updated plugin hasn't been enabled yet.

    New forum is looking good! Time to learn the ropes again. Thanks all for the hard work and efforts put into running this place.
  9. Tassie 225Er!

    Welcome! I've found myself driving around in a 9-3 Aero these days - such a nice car, comfy as and goes well, except for, you guessed it, all the electronics that have kicked the dust in the few months I've been behind the wheel of this thing... lock system, headlight leveller, o2 heater circuit, throttle body...

    AP Automotive, however that's on the diagonal opposite of town to Kurrajong. Collier's in Granville is an excellent alternative in a more central location should you need work done sooner than Renotech can come for a visit.

    You're not too far up the road, come to the pizza night tomorrow night! http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/topic/19728-syd-pizza-nights-check-first-post-for-details/

    Thought the username sounded familiar. Mate you're in a Renault now?! Congratulations! As above, that E30 you've got still one of my favourite builds. I haven't seen it go in a while but hard to imagine it pulling any less than like a freight train

    What a nice lot of cars you've built man, love it. I must say that I always admire you car folks over there, not only constantly conducting sheer lunacy with your wicked car builds but they also seem to be pumped out damn fast, with very little trouble and with some very mechanically minded hands and no fear of fabricating a lot of stuff. We don't see anything of the sort here even amongst the much more popular JDM car culture; although a lot of it has to do with a much more restrictive set of laws to adhere to, I think even without said laws we'd never would have been quite as crazy as you guys are.

    It was - given the sheer severity of the drought that plagued us last decade, the significant water restrictions imposed on NSW and Victoria were more than well and truly justified. I still remember it being a legitimate concern that Sydney may run out of usable water; being able to wash your car on a day of your choosing would and should have been the last thing on anyone's minds.
