# ErwinFenyvesi23 :
Finally...


○ What's up my dudes ?

○ So , while the Supra is getting repainted , I finally decided to pull the trigger and get a Skyline ! As you can see in the photo from above , it's an R33 GTST , and that means that it has the RB25DET inside and it is RWD ! Anyway , here's some more pictures :









○ So , I found her at the local junkyard near me and I must say that she caught my eye instantly. There were lots of other awesome JDM cars that looked interesting , but I saw something really really sad there. A totaled R32 GT-R. I would've bought that one , but it was beyond repair. Oh well...

○ She looks quite good for a salvage title ! Also , these rims though ! They look sick !!!

○ So , she was bought back in 1994 and the odometer indicates 156900 km and it was raced on the track quite a lot ! Who knows what cool and interesting parts she has...

○ I don't want to get dirty with her just yet , because I'm gonna let the professionals take care of her. I can't wait for tomorrow morning 'cuz I'll drive down to Mackay's garage and let the guys over there do their thing. My plans for this thing would be to make it like the R32 that Mackay once owned ( it's now owned by Lagano ) , and I bet all of you know that that R32 is an absolute monster on the road. If I remember correctly it has over 600hp !

○ I'll post the spec list after the car is properly inspected.

○ I haven't decided what engine to go with , but I think I'll swap it to an RB26. I'll ask Mackay tomorrow , he knows everything about Skylines.

○ Here's a current pic of the engine bay :



○ So , the engine runs quite well , and revs very nice. Also , she sounds amaizing with that HKS muffler.

○ The interior is completely stock , which is not my cup of tea but oh well , we'll get there some day in the future...





○ Anyway , lets talk some numbers. I bought her for 7000V$ , which kinda leaves me with not a whole lot of money in my pocket. I'm afraid I'll have to sell something and I know exactly what... The S14. If any of you are interested in buying the S14 , feel free to make an offer ! If you want the full spec list check out some older posts. I'm sure you'll find everything you need to know there !

○ So , thats all for now , I'm really excited for this new project and I hope you guys are too !

○ I'll see y'all around !

Baltic Blue...

○ Hey guys , what's up ?

○ So , first of all , sorry for not posting for a while , but I've been hanging out with my boys Mackay and Radcoon ! So , I have to say , Mackays garage is just full of god-tier JDM cars and I'll confess that I love spending time there , heck , I'd love to work there , but thats up to Mackay.

○ Ahh yes , sorry for giving you guys blue balls for a couple of days , but the Supra is finally repainted , and god damn , she looks gorgeous !!! Here's some shots :









○ She's amaizing ! So , as the title suggests , the color I picked is the Baltic Blue Metallic color , which is an OEM Color for the Supra. It looks really nice , but there's one more thing that I have to do with the Supra. We gotta take it to the expressway. Y'all know what's 'bouta happen... >:)

○ So , because the Supra pretty much became my daily car now , sadly , I decided to let the S14 go. I've took really good care of it and made quite some memories , and I hope the new owner will take good care of it and have fun with it the same way I did. Here's the last pic of the S14 leaving my garage ...



○ You'll be missed baby , but you know what they say ! If you love something , set it free...

○ You're probably wondering why I sold it wingless , well , I wanted to keep the wing because it was a present from an old friend of mine across the ocean , back in San Diego.

○ So , lets talk some numbers now. I sold the S14 for 9000 V$ and I gave the old wheels that the S14 came with to the new owner.

○ Alright , enough sadness now. To entertain myself for a bit I decided to try and see how the Super Taikyu wing fits on the S13 , here's the result :)) :





○ Nice or rice ? I'll let you guys decide.

○ Don't worry guys , the wing is just sitting there because I just wanted to see how it looks , and I didn't want to drill into the trunk for no real reason. I hate drilling through trunks because I'm always scared that the holes won't fit with the wing and the whole thing would sit crooked...

○ Anyways , now that the Supra is "done" ( it will never be done , I'll always change things on it ) , I have to choose which car will be the next project car , and I figured out I'd let you guys decide.


FD Rx-7 or R33 GTS-T ?

It's up to you guys which one is next , so pick the one that you like !

○ Anyway , that's about it for now , I'm really hyped on the Supra and the other 2 cars , and a little bit sad about the S14 , but hey , it was time for the S14 to leave. She treated me well and so did I.

○ I'll see all of you homies around !

Even if I am not a blue-car-liker it suits the supra and matches the R33 right?
Do the R33 man.....

Oh man, that blue really fits your Supra, it turned out better than I thought it would, also that color name made me nostalgic af, brings memories about few things in my life, oh well. Don't be sad about your S14, as you know I sold mine too, ours were pretty much same spec even tho we did things different way.
Also what kind of question is that man? I know how much you want to do that RX7 but in my opinion ditch the RX7, get some money, and go all out with R33. I owned FD before, had big expectations and plans for it, but it just wasn't for me, thankfully I traded it for S14. But it is up to you.. :rolleyes:

As for the work at my place.. If you are really, and I mean really serious about it then contact me via email or call me, and we will definitely sort everything out and we might make it happen. Considering that you are in Tokyo, you would need to move to Osaka, also it might be a problem to store all of your cars inside, as our garage is 90% of the time is stuffed with things, so only one or two cars tops, but you could always work on any car inside whenever you want, only storing is a problem, but as you saw the yard is very secure with high fences and other shit, so you could definitely keep as much cars as you want there, also it wouldn't be a problem to get you your own smaller storage garage where you would rent an apartment or whatever you came up with if you want. But anyways, I am sure that we could find a place for you in our squad, also I know what are you capable of when working on cars, so it would be good to have another cool guy in our team. ;)

Will wait for a response from you. :thumbsup:

Thank you so much Mackay ! I didn't expect the Supra to look so good either !

About the Rx7 ... I've put a lot of thought into this idea and I think I might just to that. I'll post it up for sale and sell it eventually , and go all out with the R33. After all , your crew can build beasts , and I mean BEASTS ! A very good example would be the R32 you guys built.

Also , y'know what ? Lets make it happen ! I absolutely love working on cars no matter what I have to do ! Its something about cars that calms me down , y'know ? So , now , the first thing I'd have to do would be to sell the RX7 here in Tokyo , then I'll have 3 perfectly working cars , I'll transport them over to Osaka and join my friends on my dream job ! Luckily , I actually have an old friend back in Osaka who didn't manage to sell his house. Maybe I'll get in touch with him and maybe manage to get a deal on that place. Good thing is that its about 10 minutes away from your shop. Anyway , thank you Mackay so much for giving me this opportunity ! I'll work some things out in the next couple of days and I'll give you a call when everything's set and ready to go ! :thumbsup:

Hard work forever pays and I'm moving to a better place...



-✔ Alright guys , what's up ? So , todays update is gonna be a little bit short because overall nothing much really happend. So , the first thing to talk about would be the fact that I'm moving to Osaka. I just love that place , my friends are there and I've pretty much set up a job for myself down in Osaka. I became bored of Tokyo because no one I know lives in Tokyo so , I have this amaizing opportunity to move to a better place , and let me tell you , I ain't ditching this plan. I 100% want to continue my life in Osaka. So , you guys may be wondering why am I moving to Osaka. Well , it's because this amaizing friend of mine ( aka Mackay ) arranged things up so I can work for him. God bless that man ! So , since their workshop is in the dock area , I won't be able to find a close place to live , because after all , its near the docks , so I think I'm gonna end up staying at Mackays place for a bit to be able to find a nice appartment to rent for myself. As for the cars , I could temporarily store my cars in the yard of Mackays garage. I've been there a couple of times and that place looks secured af ! Tall fences , great security , I'm 100% my cars will be safe there. -✔

-✔ So , moving to the next part of this update , somehow I managed to sell the Rx-7. Some of you may be asking why I sold it , well , let me tell you. Since I'll be working for Mackay , I'm gonna build my R33 there ( because those guys know their shit ! ) , and in order to build an absolute street beast , I will need money , therefore , I sold the RX-7. I can't lie but I cried a little bit inside when I saw the thing leave the garage. It could've been a nice car to restore but one thing that I started hating is having cars that I don't use in my garage. Anyways , don't be sad , I'm sure that I'll own another RX-7 in the future . Overall , I managed to get a profit out of the Rx-7. I sold it for 7000V$ and all I did was to give it a nice clean-up. -✔





-✔ So , there really isn't anything else to talk about other than this garage. My current garage. Man , I have to say , this was my home and the home of my cars. I made quite some memories here , and learned a lot of stuff , but y'know what ? I just had to switch things up to see the bigger picture. So , tommorow morning I'll get the guys at the towing company down here and they'll put the R33 and the S13 on the trailers , I'm gonna drive the Supra and we're all gonna drive down to Osaka. I can't wait ! Finally I won't have to drive so much to see my friends ! -✔





-✔ So right now I'm packing my things up , which is gonna take quite a while. Hopefully , Osaka will offer me a better life , full of fun and memories. Anyways , I'll see you guys in the next update , which is probably going to be tommorow. It really depends how soon we arrive in Osaka. I'll keep y'all posted . Farewell , Tokyo ! -✔

Welcome the family man. I am sure that this new beginning will be a good one considering that you will be surrounded by awesome and like minded people here is Osaka who is down to help you anytime. You can keep your cars in the yard as much as you want, even if you leave it there and forget about it no one will touch it, also we are definitely keeping the Supra inside the shop to show it off, I think we will rearrange things inside to get one more space for your R33 too, we will see.

Also if you need any help packing the things up I can definitely jump on the bullet train or plane and be there in two hours or so.. I could even go behind the wheel of R33, so you would save some money that you would spend on towing it. Can't wait for tomorrow, we are waiting for you!

And yeah.. As radcoon said, he lives in Tokyo, skip and his gang is there too, holeecrab, AJ and few others is there too if I am right. But who cares, we all stay in contact and can reach each other in few hours if needed, so no problems there. B)

Ayy ! Thanks a bunch pal ! I'm really looking forward to this ! I don't know if the Supra is show-worthy yet , but if we can squeeze it in there then we'll do it !

Nah bro , it's cool. But if you want to , then heck yeah ! I'm up for a little race between the Supra and the R33 anytime. Actually , now that I think about it , it definitely needs to happen before we start the R33 project ! >:)

Dude , I don't wanna sound like I lived under a rock all this time , but I swear to god I had no idea that others we're in Tokyo as well. Oh well , I'm sure I'll meet them on a saturday or something like that... I literary can't wait for tommorow ! I don't know how I'll manage to sleep tonight with all this hype...

Of course it is show worthy man, I am sure that it will be even better in the future, you probably didn't catch that but I said before that we will fit one of your car inside without problems, so Supra is the cleanest one right now, so we will keep it that way for sure.

Nah, it is not cool, I am already on my way to Kansai Airport with my wife, bought last minute tickets to Tokyo and I will be there in less than two hours. I'll will stay at hotel overnight if something and we will leave together in the morning, and yeah, we definitely going to drive over speed limit down the trip. :rolleyes:

Dude ! I wasn't expecting you to actually come ! Damn , now I'm even more hyped ! I can't wait to meet you guys in the morning !

So , I'll drive the Supra , you'll take the R33 and your wife the 180. Great ! I can't wait to do pulls with you guys ! All the cars should be equal in power , since none of them have heavy mods under the hood.

You know me, I won't let my boy do all the things by himself. :rolleyes:

We are already in the airport, will be boarding soon, so we will be off for the next hour or so, don't forget to pick us up, or we will take a cab to you.
Eh, she ain't driving tomorrow, your drift car will go on a trailer man.. But I am sure that this is not a problem for us.

Thanks once again dude ! :-X

I'll pick up you in the Supra. Then we'll head back to the garage , you'll take the R33 and the S13 is going on the trailer , as you said. Sounds like a solid plan to me !

I hope you guys have a nice quick flight over here , just don't forget to give me a call in the morning !

Hey Erwin! I finally made a decision with those two cars (Yellow Evo V and Purple 180 Type X).

I got both!

I might need to do some work on the 180 though

Goodbye Tokyo , hello Osaka !



-✔ Ahh shit , here we go again. So , first of all , sorry for not posting yesterday , but I've been kinda busy and tired after the Tokyo - Osaka trip , but man it was so fun ! Mostly we just cruised on the highway , but then Mackay and I decided to do a little highway race. The road was mostly empty since we started early in the morning and I gotta say , we were neck in neck ! It was so fun , though I was kinda scared to go all out with the Supra. I really didn't want something bad to happen to her since I love her so much , but man , Mackay has some balls ! He floored it and slalomed through traffic , and thats where the race pretty much began. Once again , it was incredibly fun. ✔-



-✔ Overall , the whole trip passed kinda quickly. When we arrived I told Mackay that we absolutely have to do that again when the cars are all done. Man , I honestly can't wait to see how both of my cars turn out. I mean , me and the team are going to build absolute street beasts out of these things , but it's gonna take a while to get there. Also , if feels so nice finally enjoying the crap out of the Supra because I worked so hard to get it on the road , y'all probably know by now how much of a transformation this car went through. I'm just so happy that it's a fully working car now , but I'm not stopping here. Some heavy under-the-hood mods are coming for the Supra. Since it's all stock , its not that strong. A first mod would be a single turbo conversion and after that maybe new cams and stuff of that nature. We'll see. -✔





-✔ So , after we arrived , the first thing we did was to take the 180 off the trailer. Big props to the guys who towed the car all the way here. I gave them 600V$ for a job and a couple of beers , they deserved it ! Anyway , I don't know what my plans with the 180 are right now. I've bought it to use it as a Ebisu drift car , and since it's in quite good condition and runs like a champ , I may end up selling it or something. I really don't know what to use it for because now Ebisu is farther away and I don't know if there are any drifting tracks around or near Osaka. Or... maybe I'll do some heavy mods to it and make it like the track 180 that Mackay and his team built , too bad they sold that thing in Russia. I would've loved to see it in person ! The aero pieces on that thing were absolutely nuts ! It also had an SR22 making around 800 hp if I'm not mistaken. Oh well , lets just hope that the R33 and/or Supra will reach these huge numbers. -✔



-✔ So long story short , I was kinda bored yesterday afternoon and I decided to take the R33 for a little bit of hoonage around the shop. I gotta say , it slides kinda good , but the suspension is really old and the car has quite some body roll. So , maybe I'll do the same thing that I did to the Supra and maybe get some TEIN coilovers for it and maybe some better sway bars. I already decided what I want to do with this thing and I have really big hopes for this build. It'll be like Lagano's R32 , but rear wheel drive. Y'all know that thing pushes over 1000 hp , so if it's gonna reach those numbers , I'll need some real wide rims and tyres to put all that power down. I wonder what's the max legal tyre size over here in Japan , cuz it's gonna be pretty much a street legal drag car. Anyway , there's quite a long way until the car will get there so stay stoked ! It's gonna be quite a long build ! -✔





-✔ As for the Supra , it's currently at the shop , inside of course , doing the thing she does the best - lookin' good. I still think the Supra isn't a showcar yet , but just you guys wait , she's gonna get there ! I'll start ordering new aero pieces for her soon , as soon as I find a little apartment to rent for myself. And maybe a garage. I don't want to be disrespectful towards the guys at the shop because I know how much of a pain in the ass it is to have other's people stuff laying around and having to work around them. Also , I'm not a very "messy" person either so I like everything to be clean and well sorted out in the place where I live/work and let me tell you guys something. Mackay's shop is so clean ! I absolutely love it ! You can find anything you need in one place and you don't have to search for anything ! It's pretty much a dream garage for me , and I work there ! Man , I'm so glad that I moved to Osaka. Things are getting better and better as time progresses ! -✔



-✔ Also , I would like to give Mackay and his wife a massive thank you for letting me stay at their place until I manage to find myself a place to live. I know how strange it is to have guests over for a couple of days and I must say , I feel weird "making myself at home" in someone else's house. For some reason I just feel awkward going into the kitchen and opening their fridge like no one's bussiness. I'll try to find myself an apartment to rent as soon as possible and once again , thank you guys for giving me a roof over my head for a couple of days ! :-X

-✔ Anyway , that's all for now. Somehow this whole moving thing reminded me of when I first came in Japan and settled down. I have to admit , I love Japan more than I love the USA. Everything is just on a whole another level over here , the people are very nice and overall , I'd say the car scene is better than anywhere in the world. There's just so much variety when it comes to cars here , like shakotan cars , bosozuku cars , everything you can imagine. I just love this place to bits ! Anyways , Godspeed homies !✔-

Don't worry man, you will get the grips of living in Osaka sooner than you realize. Also yeah, it was very fun pushing stock cars to their limits, fastest that I took your R33 was somewhere around 230-240, you definitely need better suspension ASAP as at such speed it was basically floating and bouncing. I am sure that both Supra and R33 will get an awesome makeover at new place, the only thing we will need is money and time, but as with everything, the costs will depend on your choices, cause such numbers ain't cheap.. Wait till you see my finished RB build for the GTR, I already started pulling hair out of my already bald head because of it.. Oh, and that 180SX was a fucking money eater, I spent like 35'thousand in parts or more alone, and I don't even count the hours I put into it working, also I am not counting the money Shao put in it and the motor, it was 90k car if not more.. I wouldn't be able to build such car alone with my resources back then.

Also don't worry about living at my place, as you know the place is pretty big considering that we live in Japan, so I am sure we won't feel any discomfort.
You made a really good choice moving here, and I am more than sure we will make most of it! :thumbsup:

Yep , the R33 really needs some better suspension. The first thing to do would be to strip it down to the chassis and from that point , it'll become a money eater. Hopefully the parts that we're gonna use won't be too expensive. I really hope this thing won't leave me without any money in my pockets. :(

Money is a real must when it comes to cars and I must say , spending 90k on a 180SX is quite a lot ! I really hope you made a profit on that thing , but after judging the specs and the looks of the car , I'd say that you probably made some big g's off of it.

Should I sell my 180sx though ? I mean I really don't know what to do with it. Do you have any ideas ?

Thank you again for having me at your place ! I'll try to find a rentable apartment on Monday.

Also , I can't thank you enough for setting up everything on the job at your shop. I feel like I would've never managed to build such high quality cars if I was still alone in my garage. :)

Being so hyped on life is an unbeatable feeling. Thanks Mackay ! :-X

I am sure that we will try to make it money effective build, and not spend too much.. UpGarage or second hand good parts will be your best choice right now, it all will depend on your preferences, in my opinion the thing that you should do now is to make the R33 good all-rounder type of car with 450-550hp under the hood, because if we go all out on the engine it will be uncontrollable af, brakes, suspension, eh, it will just not match the power.

I didn't made any profit of it, we basically sold it for what we put in it, Shao made some money from it, because he was responsible for the engine and spent more money in the end.

Strip the shit out of it, tune suspension a little bit and use it as practice car, unless you want to really sell it and do a proper build but I am sure that you have a lot of things going on already, but if you choose the second option then my four door will be there for you as I am building GTT one, I could even sell you that ER34 cheaply which is already very "street" driftable car.

That why we are here for, thanks for coming and joining our team. :thumbsup:

Yeah , I'll make it an all-rounder and then I'll decide if I want to go further with it.

Man , that car had so much work and effort put into it and you didn't even get a profit ? That sucks , but hey , at least you got to build an awesome track car !

Hmm , I'll think about it. An ER34 does sound pretty cool but I'll have to think more about it. For now , let's just make the R33 a decent street car and after that I'll see if I want to continue with it.

No problem man , working with you guys is a dream come true. :thumbsup:

HMMMMM you sold your FD3S but you got yourself an ECR33, not too bad of a trade-off if I'm honest. SUPRA'S DONE WOOOOOO, she's looking fine as hell!

Yeah , I'd call that a pretty good trade-off as well , but man , I was sad when I saw the FD leave , oh well. :rolleyes:

Also , fam , Supra ain't done yet , she's just in the "it doesn't really need any mods for now" stage , but man , big things are coming for her , be sure of that ! :-X

All-rounder...



-✔ Ay , wassup ? So , in the last couple of days I managed to do some minor modifications to the Supra. The mods aren't too extreme but still , it's the little things that matter , right ? Well , yes. So , I bought this amazing Carbon fiber TRD hood. I mainly picked it because I'm going to go single turbo soon and as you know , with every aftermarket mod , comes little things that should be changed/modified around it , hence , I ordered this TRD vented hood. I must say it's quite nice , and the vents work really well. They cool down the engine quite good and y'know what they say , the cooler the better. Also , since it's made out of carbon fiber , the hood is much more lighter than the stock one , which is quite good ! The less weight , the faster the car , right ? Anyway , let's take a look under the hood.✔-



-✔ Everything looks normal , right ? Well , no. If you take a closer look you'll see that the battery isn't in the engine bay anymore , so , where's the battery ? Well , I relocated it into the interior. I didn't want to relocate it to the rear because if I need to take it out or something I can do it in the interior and not have to walk all the way to the rear of the car , plus , you would've been able to see the battery through the rear windshield if it was relocated in the trunk. So , the reason on why I did this is because the previous spot where the battery sat was kinda badly placed. Why ? Because you could've seen the battery through the hood vent , and that's a big nope. Now , as you can probably see , the engine bay is very clean without the battery and I'd say it was worth it. Also , big thanks to MACKAY for walking me through the process of relocating the battery. I never did this before and I must say , after you get the hang of it , it becomes pretty easy to do.✔-



-✔ So , here it is , in the front of the passenger seat. Now , I could've placed it behind the seat , and that would've been fine , but I would've have to run longer wires and tuck them under the floor carpet. I didn't put it there because I was too lazy to put it behind a seat , I did that because the rear-seat area of the car doesn't have too much space , and I wanted to keep the space there as big as possible , after all , this is my daily car , so yeah , in case someone needs a ride somewhere they can just sit in the backseat and relax with all the comfort needed.✔-



-✔ So , in addition to all the new mods done to the front end of the car , the rear end needed to get a little bit of refresh as well , so I got a brand new exhaust system and a very nice Tsurikawa train handle to go with it ! Big thank you to Radcoon over at the Sticky Rice Cake Stickershop for sending it over. Along with the Tsurikawa I got some stickers as well , but I'll put them on later on another car. So , it is very visible that the exhaust tip changed , because its absolutely huge right now , and that's because I've changed the old rusty OEM exhaust system to this amazing Greddy Power Extreme exhaust system. The kit came with the pipe , all the hardware and the muffler , but if you guys think that another muffler would look good on the car , I'll change it , but for now I'd say that it's pretty good , though I could go with a titanium tip , but that's up to you guys. Anyway , here's some before and after pictures of the exhaust system.✔-

BEFORE



AFTER



-✔ So , as you can see , I wasn't lying when I said the OEM exhaust had a ton of rust. Besides all the rust , it also had some small little leaks but all of that crap is now fixed. It's easily noticeable that the exhaust diameter is much larger , and that's the factor that gives you more horsepower. It's also easily noticeable that the OEM exhaust system had 2 pipes which were joining at the end of the turbo down-pipe and at the start of the muffler , and now it's just one big single pipe to do all the job. So , here's a little bit of science behind the exhaust pipes. The shorter the length and the bigger the capacity of the exhaust , the bigger the power. So , as I said , technically , this brand new exhaust system should give the car more horsepower. Also , Greddy advertises this : "PE Power Extreme exhaust systems were developed for those who demand the ultimate in performance from modified street/race cars. Tubing diameters are increased to eliminate backpressure. It features a more aggressive tone and is recommended for turbo applications." And I must say , the engine really sounds more aggressive , which I absolutely love. Anyway , after the engine mods of the Supra are going to be done and all tuned up , I'm going to dyno it and see how much actual power I gained from all these mods. I can't wait to see this thing reach huge numbers , but until then , there's quite a lot of work to be put into this car.✔-



-✔ As for the R33 , well , it's gonna get stripped to the chassis in the next couple of days and after that it's gonna get a cage. I really don't know what I'll do with all the stock parts that remain from this thing , maybe I'll sell them or throw them away. I don't really want to keep them around the shop because I don't want my unused things to lay in the shop and just gather dust because I really hate working in a dirty environment and I don't want to disturb my co-workers. I know how much of a pain it is to have to make room just to be able to work. If any of you are interested in used OEM R33 parts hit me up , because after the car is stripped down to the chassis everything is getting replaced , and I mean everything. I want this thing to be a car which has been build with brand new parts and not really used and worn parts from decades ago , so yeah , the R33 project is starting soon.✔-





-✔ So , after a little bit of waiting I managed to sell the 180sx. It was fun to own and use this car but sadly , because I moved away from Tokyo , Ebisu was further away and I said screw it. There was no point in keeping this thing and I got rid of it as quick as possible because all it really did was to gather dust while occupying space outside the shop. I don't regret selling it because I didn't have any sort of emotional bonding with the S13 and I basically just used it as a "tool" to have fun. I don't know when I'll get back to drifting , but I must say that I truly enjoy it , and I think I'll stay away from it for a while. I considered getting into grip racing and time attacks but right now I don't think I need another car , but that may change at any moment. Either way , if I get back into drifting or get into time attack/grip racing I will stay away from these S13s. Why ? Because it's just something that you see everywhere , and I want to own something different , therefore , I sold the 180sx. Don't get me wrong , I absolutely love S13 but its just so ordinary to own one nowadays that it's literary "common". Anyway , in the end I managed to get quite a profit out of this thing since it was in very good condition , and with a little bit of work put into it , I managed to get a solid 8500V$ out of it. I sold it with the MR2 wheels and pretty much all the stock/OEM parts I took off of it. Man , I must say , money is flowing pretty good right now ... :D ✔-



-✔ Talking about money , I finally managed to find an apartment for me to rent , and the cool thing about this is that I managed to rent an apartment right next to the building where MACKAY lives , which is just cool af. It's so close that we can literary chat across balconies. So , from what I understood from the landlord the rent isn't really that expensive and the overall size of the apartment is the same as the ones in the building next to it. I don't know the exact number I have to pay as rent , but I'll find out soon. The weird thing is that I basically have a quite large apartment all for myself. It's cool , but I really hope the rent won't bankrupt me... :P ✔-

-✔ Anyways , that would be all for now. I'm really hyped to finally put some work into that R33 and to make my Supra better and better. Next up for the Supra would be to get a single turbo kit , but I haven't picked a turbo I want to go with. All I know is that I need that turbo to push massive amounts of compressed air into the engine and that's about it. Of course at first we'll go slow on the psi but I hope I'll be able to get around 30 psi into the engine without blowing it up. Anyways , godspeed homies !

The Supra now looks even more aggressive, in my opinion you should really get a new front bumper or something for it, but my advice would be to not spend anymore money on the Supra right now if you really want to build that R33 up, it gets confusing when you have two race cars and no daily reliable daily driver. But I will support you on whatever you will choose. :rolleyes:

Also replacing everything on your R33 might be way too much, but thats up to you, will be interesting to see how your plan will turn out. As for aero, we can definitely put practical wing on it and mock up a front splitter with rear diffuser and you will be set, something similar as on my ex R32.

If you really want to go drifting that much you can always take the four door, but promise me not to destroy it haha, also if you want I could let you have it for 7'grand, so when my GTT gets done, we will have two R34 drift cars, even the same colors maybe? We will see, I am sure you will get another drift car sooner or later.

I would really like to see R33 get done first, but if you really want that Supra turbo kit, you can always get a HKS T04Z TURBO KIT for 7,5K which is quite capable setup, but don't forget another things as you will blow up only with such kit.

Ehh, a lot of cool shit is happening soon I see. :thumbsup:

I'm trying to find a really nice front bumper for it , but I don't know which one to pick ! I'll definitely have to make up my mind soon , also , spending money on the Supra should indeed stop soon , gotta get that R33 rebuilt ! :P

Also , yeah , I think I'll have to re-use some parts from the R33 like bushings and things of that nature. Completely rebuilding it would be quite hard and expensive , and I'm trying to be careful with my money. So , custom made aero ?! Sign me up , I'm definitely in for that !

Would you actually sell it the R34 to me ?! Oh my god , yes !!! I'll buy it !!! I've been waiting for so long to get my hands on an R34 , you probably know by now , I've been talking about owning one for days around the shop. So , yeah , I'll buy it. :woot:

We'll do the R33 first , and then the Supra , but I must say , a turbo kit for 7.5k is a lot , but I'm damn sure it's worth it. I'll hold back on the Supra for now , maybe I'll buy a new front bumper and thats all. The R33 really needs to get built , and we're getting on it soon.

Also , yeah , awesome things are happening lately , but they wouldn't have happened without your help , thank you once again ! :thumbsup:

My boy! I am sure that we will get our hands on R33 very soon then. :thumbsup:

I will help you figuring out things with that R33 and its suspension and stuff I guess, and yeah, custom aluminium aero will be good for sure, the ones on R32 hold up pretty well on big speeds and increased stability too.

Yeah, the four door ER34 can be yours anytime, the one that you were sitting in the back of haha. I will pass you everything that I have for it, my fiberglass Nismo bumper, old fenders, stock suspension parts n shit, so you will be able to do R34 GTR front on it again instead of BN kit. 7k and it is yours, we will do the paperwork when I comeback, also I am sure that you don't need my Work Meister wheels on it, as that would be extra 2k, also I love that wheels myself way too much to pass them to someone else. :rolleyes:

I can't wait to get that R33 on the road after we install all the mods and make the custom parts for it !

Also , heck yeah my man !!! I can't wait for you to get back so we can make the deal ! Also , you can keep the Meisters no problem. I'll buy some new wheels for it.

I can't wait too, we will definitely make it a good one.

Awesome, sounds like a plan then, Oh, I almost forgot about that.. Are you keeping the OEM brakes or GTR ones that I have put on it? If you choose to go with OEM ones I could drop another grand of the price tag.. It is up to you really.

Gonna keep the GT-R brakes. I really don't think that cars lacks braking power at all.
