New Beginnings

Hey peeps
So this is my new thread and new life (if you want to say that) in Japan. I lived here before I joined STS, so I'm pretty familiar with it already.

I'm living in a new house that I'm renting in Yashio, Saitama prefecture, Tokyo. It's the perfect size for me and has enough space for 2-3 cars. I've put a deposit of V$2,000 for rent so it should keep that payed for a while.

So my newish cars is *drum-roll*

A 1994 Nissan 180SX
boooo that's boring everyone has one

Yes 180SX's are very common but there is a reason for that too. I bought it for V$6,200, it has no dangerous rust (hence the price), sorta faded paint, 4 teardrops with fucked tires, 1 has a puncture and it's n/a manual. It has a unknown cone air filter and some fake Mishimoto radiator. It's a chuki, and it's my new project/daily car.

So I called up Renaruto and we went to pick it up. (~thanks Renaruto). At first it wouldn't start, but after a quick jump it started up. It smelled a bit mouldy because it's been sitting for so long, but its nothing I can't clean up.




After this we cruised to my local UpGarage in Nerima to buy a new tire to replace the punctured one. It cost me V$65 for it and V$25 for petrol. I will be getting plates after I put it through sha-ken again since it was unregistered.
It seems to be running fine for now; it definitely needs fluids changed though.



This is all for now, I'm still jet lagged as fuck and surprised I haven't passed out as I'm writing this. More stuff will be happening tomorrow though, when I can actually function.


(yes I made these maps for people wondering, it's why they look bad.)

I might build it as a N/A motor with ITB's or I might go turbo route. Not sure yet really, but ITB's would be cool as fuck.
# ErwinFenyvesi23 : Nice 180 skip ! Whats the first mod thats going to be installed ?
Probably a little lip or something, but I'm looking at replacing the clutch and general maintenance first because it was sitting for a while.

I'm still working in Phonexius's Art of Wheel shop so I'm getting money through that mostly. I also have money from my sold S14 that I had back in USA.

Small ting

*insert intro thingy here thanks*
Only a small update really.
Anyway, today I went to UpGarage after work. It was practically dead during my shift to I had plenty of time to look at parts n shit.
I spotted some stuff I wanted on their site so I went to pick them up. The car park of UpGarage always amazes me, stanced family vans and JZX's randomly everywhere. Owned by some employees apparently.

I bought a JVC radio since I didn't have a radio at all, some oil for an oil change, a dildo gear knob, a tsurikawa and a chuki lip for V$227. Pretty cheap tbh, but I have ordered coilovers from a special place for the weekend hopefully :>






I got home about an hour after work and fitted them all.
It was hard to put on a lip on my own, but I did it while struggling.








I took it out for a drive to the docks after, it's running pretty good as of now.
Before I ruin modify it anyway.

I'm gonna get coilovers first and then I'm gonna look for wheels. Suggestions?
Also on this topic tell me if your selling any 180sx bodyparts, I'll buy em.

Added 1 minute later:

# Kornis : ^I'd keep the wheels and go like this
That would be cool, but I want to build this to a different style. Maybe if I got a cleaner chassis, I would. Edit:Now that I think about it, it'll look sorta like that when I get my coils.

Aero Situation

So to at least attempt to get my pos drift-readyish and looking a bit less bland I blew V$1,650 on parts and other stuff. Mainly from UpGarage.

I picked up a Nismo LSD and new rims from UpGarage which I got a free sticker with too,I got my windows tinted (20% rears, 35% front) and a custom straight pipe exhaust made in Yashio Factory.

Now for the main show of this evening is my new Type X wing + Sideskirts and SSR Mesh w/tires (15") both from Yahoo Auctions and UpGarage. They cost me V$1,000 for both which isn't that bad. I got my front fenders rolled at Yashio Factory while I was there too so I could fit the SSR Meshes.



You might have read that Lagano from Side to Side team has came over to Japan too. He's currently living with me so while he went to pick up some food I got a sneaky photo shoot session done in Downtown Tokyo.


I took out my old VHS camera and took this 2000's style photo. Early 2000's drifting is my favourite era and will probably be where this build is headed.


All this needs to get is paint and lowered for now. I've already ordered some coilovers and stickers and they will hopefully be here by tomorrow evening. It looks like a monster truck sitting in my driveway.
I'm going to Mobara Twin Circuit with Renaruto during the weekend; hopefully it holds up during the event if it's N/A SR20DE.

Good things coming soon.

Hopefully it holds up to all the abuse. It'll probably overheat since it's pretty much stock.
Paint is coming soonish too by the way.

It probably won't stay in this style for a while because I have something I want to work forward to, but for now I like it. And your JZX is sick too.

Monster Truck No More


My package came today. Earlier then I expected, but I'm not complaining.
So I bought a set of 326power Chakruiki GT-S that I payed for in my last update.
This was needed sooo badly and with it, it handles and looks a lot better.
I'm still not finished adjusting it and I want to go lower, but for now it's better.



My brakes are a bit rusty but they still work, no need to be replaced as of now




Took it out for a drive after. Got these nice pics during the sunset.



This was a shot from last nights street session at Location X. This was before I had the new coilovers in, the body roll was insane.
Next thing up is paint, which I have something special in mind for.

Thats it for now anyway; can't wait to get it painted.
