Are you sick of having a huge arch gap over you wheels?
Want this…. To look like this….
Let’s look at how!
So in a new feature for the web page we’re going to start looking at some owners cars in detail and what brought them to the boxy family. Did they resist or jump in with both feet? Have they a history of standing out from the crowd? Are they a die hard stock fan or do their veins flow with rice and neon? First under the Microscope is our co-contributor Pinion.
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…
so everyone seemed to have a great day and we managed to get 9 cubes to attend although we all thought the pitch was a bit tight for space especially considering it was supposed to be big enough for 10 cars. Continue reading
i started looking at cubes on ebay a good few years ago but ended up buying a 3.9 ltr v8 land rover discovery. after about 18 months i just about got fed up with filling it wtith £100 of fuel at a time and it getting me nowhere .so i sold it and went back to looking at cubes ,mine is a bz11 1.5 cvt model that i bought from c.i.d. in Bristol ,its about as practical a discovery but much better on fuel .since i have owned it i have fitted new larger wheels ,coilovers,seat covers strut brace,stainless exhaust etc etc,and as you can see from the pics above new bumpers ,wing,and side skirts and i still have a few more mods i would like to do ,since phil left the club i have been organizing our club events and intend to in 2016 at least !
So then, out in the US those little red reflectors on the rear bumper of the UK and JDM Gen 3 are lit. They look good at night and so if you want to replicate the look here’s a little guide for you to follow to get the job done.
