  • Your Pathfinder Info
    Basics: 1988 Nissan Pathfinder SE-V6 4x4 5Spd, 430,000+ Miles.Background Info: I originally purchased this truck in December of 2001, but held off on doing any modifications, for the most part due to the many problems I had with it early on… such as vary poor performance that ended in the truck being completely un-drivable. This was corrected with the replacement of the ECU (which was the root of most of my problems). Soon after that was repaired a broken Camshaft gave me quite the headache, but I luckily came out of that with minimal damage. This was followed by both keyways in the crankshaft rounding out, which led to a new(used) engine.Engine: Performance camshafts, Dual Oil Filter Relocation Kit. The engine was replaced with a used unit (131K) at 291K when both crankshaft keyways rounded out on the original. And this was after the right hand camshaft broke around 270-280K. Waiting on Install: Headers Drivetrain:WARN Premium Manual Hubs, Nissan Hardbody transfer case shift lever (to compensate for the 3in Body Lift). Waiting on Install: LockRight Rear locker, 4.6 in Rear Diff. Convertion to Rear Disk Brakes, Front Diff with 4.6 R&PSuspension: Superlift UCA's, JGC Coils (approx 3in Lift), Sway-a-Way Torsion Bars, ProComp ES3000's, Energy Suspension coil spring isolators/spacers.Steering: Upgraded TK1 Style Centerlink (fixed by Trailchaser since Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance refused to replaced the life endangering Centerlink which he supplied me with) Double Shear Pitman and Idler Arms, Idler Arm Brace. Steering Stabilizer.Body: Performance Accessories 3in Body Lift, Custom Roof rack (adapted Chevy S10 Blazer rack), Ventshade vent visors, Deer dent behind drivers door... and a dent "in" the deer by the ARB *grin* Thule Roof Rack/Cargo Basket. Waiting on Install: Factory Fender Flares, Xterra Roof RackElectrical & Lighting: 110AMP (Quest/Villager) Alternator. JVC HDR1 High Definition Radio/CD Deck, Overhead DVD system, Navigon 2100 MAX GPS, 1100 watt power inverter and a Cobra 25LTD Classic, Rear High Mount Speakers from a '94, nothing really special yet in the speaker departments. And a pair of PIAA Fog Lamps on the front of the ARB. 5-6 100watt Offroad Lamps. Waiting on install: Two 55watt Rear Facing Lamps for the Thule Basket.Tires/Wheels: 33x10.50 BFG Mud Terrain KM2's on Ultra 589 15x8 wheels.Armor/Recovery: ARB BullBar, HiLift, 12.5K T-Max Winch, recovery straps, portable shovel, axe, First Aid kit, dual tow hooks, etc.Interior: Rear Belts w/Shoulder Harness from a '94, '95 Center Console w/tall arm rest, rear floor ducts for the climate control.-------------------------------------------------------Did I mention that Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance built and sent me a Centerlink that seems to have been made to endanger my life??? And that he has refused (by ignoring all my attempts at contacting him) to correct the situation by sending me a properly made Centerlink or reimbursing me for the costs involved in having it properly fixed... did I also forget to mention that this has been going on for well over a year now???Can you guess what my opinion of such a stand up business man and all around great guy Phil Dawkins might be???Contact Phil Dawkins @ 217-351-8316 and ask him why he has not corrected this situation and why he would endanger my life, my kid’s lives and the lives of those around me by building such a poor product and then actually sending it to me thinking that I am some idiot customer who blindly installs anything I get (Phil, I look at EVERYTHING before I install it, I will not install anything that is questionable to me before making sure that it is safe.. and everyone agreed that the CL you build was NOT even close to safe!!)If you get an answer from him, please let me know, because he sure as hell will not answer those questions for me!Pictures of the Centerlink in question, along with the story can be found here: http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=14730

  1. Should be resolved, let me know.
  2. hmm, I am not seeing that, but will take a look. Thanks for the heads up.
  3. Start a petition for a W version of the D21 body! BTW, I have perhaps the first D21 RC released (not sure). Even have the original box and everything that came with it, along with the Tower Hobbies kit, radio, bag, battery etc. There is a seller on eBay that offers reproductions of the lexan/polycarbonate body, which I actually bought one from. But finding the grill, headlight lenses and light bar may not be as easy. This was my very first hobby grade RC.
  4. lol yeah we have one.. look at the bottom of the page It's an included one from IPS and yes some text is hard, or very hard to see. I've long used it and guess that I've just got used to it, at some point I'll dig through the code and see if I can find a fix for it.
  5. Forum was offline for less than 60 seconds for a minor software update.
  6. NPORA Site and Forums was offline for an unannounced server move by the host. They planned for only a few minutes of sitewide unavailability during the DNS settings update and although the main site returned within that timeframe, the forums did not. For unknown reasons the databases were not automatically migrated to the new server. A call to support initiated a manual move and account association of the databases. The total down time for NPORA Forums is estimated to have been in the 90-100min range. EDIT: Email is currently not functioning, but they are working on it. This includes the Forums built-in email notification system (registration emails, password resets, post/message notifications, etc) along with all @nissanpathfinders.net staff addresses. EDIT: Email services have been restored
  7. Tapatalk updated to latest version. -No forum site downtime -Minimal app access downtime
  8. Banned for assuming wiggling vs animation!
  9. I don't drive it as much as I used too!
  10. Groundbreaking for new construction happened yesterday, right next door... So unless they fence the whole thing off , I might have an easy reason to break out the 1/8 and 1/10 scale offroad RC's!
  11. BANNED, for killing the thread!
