As in it's hard to shift gears?
Or you cant get power after you shift a gear?

Probably just takes practice and getting used to

R154's are generally known to be notchier and harder to shift than the W boxes. Try flushing the oil and running Redline Shockproof. Supposedly worked wonders on Donnon's JZZ30 and it runs nice in my W55 which I was told had rooted synchros...

Will have to give that a try.

the flush bolt is at the bottom left side of the r154 towards the back..from memory..

ive had a w58, and im now on my second r154, and the w58 was WAYYYYYY nicer to drive....the w58 feels like one of the best gearboxes ive driven, better than wrx's, gtr's and all sorts of other nissans ive driven really...

Redline is awesome stuff. I used to run it in my FJ20et box, which are notoriously shithouse and it made it feel new.

once you use redline you have to stick with it, some chemical in it that fucks other oil that you cant get rid of. so you gotta be sure. i'm converting everything to redline next time i service. expencive shit tho (more so in the 2j, 6 liters of oil in the engine fark!!!)

anyone know who makes wonder knuckles for a70 subframes.
and also, are a70 subframes the same as z20.
i know they are interchangable, but they have subtle differences i noticed when i had the two sitting next to each other.
also, pinapples ? brand plz so i can order some off streeter.

why do u guys need camber arms, the stock adjustment have enough for around 3degrees. dont understand why u would want anymore.

iam rocking slightly over 3 degrees neg camber on the front and rear of my jzx100 (to fit the wheels mroe than anything) and while sliding, the outside edge of the tyres dont even get marked, and the inside is fucked.
