    they are just there to help you determine how your temps are.
    when oil temps starts to rocket then you know when to back off. usually on the 2nd or 3rd hard lap anyhow.

    combined with common sense you'll be set.

    dude i can get you RDA slotteds for under $250
    Also Greenstuff can be had for $150-160 easy. Speak to Matt from Race Brakes Sydney.

    I can help you source parts, just let me know.
    we'll talk on msn

    Saber Gauges (water + oil temp, oil Press.) - $330 <- (still considering if i can afford gauges)

    Circuitclub - $180

    Total = $1030
    Before all of that...Do a minor service, i.e oil, oil filter, clean air filter, check sparks, leads, fuel filter, check pad level, check all suspension bolts and etc.

    After that.... pay the 180 for CC and have fun. Just take 2-3 hot laps then do cool down laps.

    Other then that, have fun and drive it home!

    My temperature gauge (S15 stock) never budged from the middle of the gauge throughout the entire time I've driven the car. Not even when I've done 3 hard laps at wakefield. Although I did put the heater on full blast once I got off the track and left the car.
