So, the club has had a few requests for merchandising and in the past limited runs of things like T-shirts had been arranged as well as stickers and mugs.
Trouble was that due to the limited numbers we ordered we were always limited with what could be done, how many colours could be available (usually only one!) and if a minimum order had to be made someone was left holding stock for a while that wasn’t ever guaranteed to sell.
As such we’ve decided to take a new route with it all and see if it works a bit better…
For the 3rd of our feature cars I’ve gone to a car that in the relatively short time the owner has had it has changed its look almost as much as Shane’s in our last feature!
This time we feature Scott Pickles and see what brought him to the cube and what he’s done with it since he got his hands on it!
So, there is a picture of a cube that pops up with great regularity on the facebook group as new members stumble across it of a good looking cube (although it probably has more to do with the pretty lady!) and so I went on a hunt for the owner to bring you a featured car…
So club Member Stu has put together a video of sorting the brakes on the Gen2 and has graciously said we can post it here on the site for your enjoyment and use!

Are you sick of having a huge arch gap over you wheels?
Want this…. To look like this….
Let’s look at how!
So it’s been asked on the Forum and the facebook group and Philip ‘Obi Wan’ Egan came to the rescue before departing the club with this step by step guide to getting the system flushed. We’ve fleshed it out with Photo’s to make it a bit clearer than just the words so should be easy for everyone to follow.
Many driving issues around odd revving and power delivery are cured by a CVT oil change and as such it’s worth giving a go. Also with few if any of the imports coming over with a service history it’s probably worth doing as soon as you get the car if the importer/ dealer hasn’t done it.
An oil change can be done through the gear box sump but it seems that only changes about half the oil where as Phil’s method gets closer to the full gearbox volume which is 7-8 litres. The oil is stated to be long life and good for 60k miles or so and is Nissan NS-2, I am not aware of any alternatives to this and it’s not cheap requiring 2 bottles to hit the 8 litres but with how rare CVT gear boxes are to replace yours if it goes…. it’s probably a good investment.
This week sees our first guest piece from the Cube Club Queensland. Many thanks to Lynn for the write up and pictures of the groups trip to Byron Bay. So lets find out what they got up to…
