END OF AN ERA




This is it. I went to the meeting place 30 minutes early, that way I could properly say my goodbyes.



The buyer then showed up, shook my hand, and gave his testimony, and his offer. After some friendly quarreling, we ended up agreeing at a price of V$7500. SOLD!





I'm really gonna miss this car. But well, we gotta move on if we wanna level up in the world. Plus I can start mods on FaCe1. the daily FC1. Ordered parts already, due for arrival soon.





A MOMENT OF SILENCE


Finances:
V$45,435 + V$7500 + V$940 (Weekly Paycheck x1) = V$53,835

PROGRESS




Finally got the time to get Project Strawberry Painted!

First I drove over to WestKyo to swap over the wheels from the 17 inch TE37s to the 18 inch 911 997.1 Turbo Wheels I had with the car when I bought it, just so I'll have confidence to clear the ramps going up to the paint booth, as well as neglect any over spray on the actual wheels or tires.



Then the Road Trip was on.







I handed the keys over to the guys at Benny's. Should be done next week but I'll be periodically dropping off some stuff to be installed and/or painted while Project Strawberry is dismantled.



And now the daily,



The parts came in so I decided to install them ASAP. First off, Fortune Auto 500 Series Coilovers, straight from the USA. With the added Radial Bearing Upgrade, the price held me back by V$1,404. Worth every penny though.







The morning after, I got my aftermarket wheels installed. Advan Racing TCIIIs! Beautiful Hyper Silver Finish. FK8 Type-R Spec sans the PCD! Fronts are 18x9 +35 while rears are 18x8.5 +35. Cost for the set was V$2,302. These were wrapped in 245/40/18 Advan Neova AD08s, which were V$1,239.28. That brings the cost up to a total of V$3,541.48.









After the wheels, I went straight to VStanced Garage to get my BBK installed. My BBK of choice? Well, I formed connections with the guys at Spoon and Type One (Thanks Osaka Honda Community, and C-REX too), and I got a hold of a special set of PRE-RELEASE SPOON BBKs for the FC/FK Chassis! I got them at a special price of V$2,500! Not a bad deal at all considering these are one of the (if not the) best out there.











Aaaaand that's it for today! It was a very costly transformation but I'm loving it all! You really do get what you pay for. Good thing I've just gotten paid.

SPLURGE FOR STYLE 位ヵし

V$53,835 - V$1,404 - V$3,541.48 - V$2500 + V$6,000 (Court Case Dismissed, Law Services Payment Received) = V$52,389.52

EK8 Replacement???




I've been setting my eyes on this car for WEEKS! Had a chat with the owner and all was good. I've just been busy with work and my project cars that I haven't had time to take a look at it (maybe I shouldn't buy another car. But nah, fuck it).



But 4 days ago I finally had the chance to take a look at the ride and see it personally.



First thing in the morning? I was already en route to Narita, where the car was stored.



After a pretty long drive (I am grateful for the comfort and driving experience of my FC1. It's really engaging to drive even with the CVT, returns very good km/L values too!), I was at this place, weak signal so couldn't navigate through Google Maps that well (My head unit supports Android Auto).



The OCD in me was LOSING HIS MIND, weaving through these tight spaces in a brand new car with expensive wheels (not to brag) isn't really the best idea.



But hey, the rustic environment made for some pretty interesting shots.



There it was. **** ****** ****** *** ***. All will be revealed when the time is right.



As of this writing I have left and am already close to home. I'll be bringing the FC1 back first. I'll come pick it up next week, maybe even earlier. Would need to either hitch a ride with a friend or get a taxi or something.



Anyway, that's all for now folks!

So Muzahid (Niatross) got himself a new daily! And as per usual, we had to meet up today. (Don't worry you will see the new car I bought tomorrow haha)

Not much to say, so I'll stop stalling and show pics! Check out Niatross' RP for details on his new score, a W140 S500.



Oh yeah, let me just say, I am really happy with the stock power on this Civic, CVT and 1.5L, but torque is GOOD thanks to the VTEC and the turbo working together.

Aaaaand here we are! Oh yeah, Marc (Macaron_moon) was there too haha. His CZ4A Evo X MR looking beautiful as ever, sporting a wingless look and TE37s (Which now have genuine Rays stickers on!)

A HUMBLE BEGINNING!




So, now you guys finally know what I bought. 1994 Nissan Silvia K's (S14). Now, you might be wondering, if the car's model year is 1994, why is it a Kouki, and not a Zenki?





The previous owner of the guy I bought it from, did a full-on Kouki conversion, albeit missing a few badges here and there, of which the last owner, Koro-san, found and installed to complete the Kouki look.





Now, this has been through quite a number of drift sessions, and everything was fine according to him. But when he did tandems at this one session (around like 2 sessions before his last one), the JZX90 Cresta in front of him slowed down, thanks to Koro-san's 17-year drifting experience, he was able to react promptly, slowing his pace down to match the JZX's. The real problem was the R33 GTS that was behind him, who wasn't able to react in time. Hence, the R33's front tires kicked the front left fender in, as well as hit the front left R34 wheel the S14 had on at the time, causing Koro-san to spin out, with the rear right quarter panel hitting the JZX90's rear left quarter panel. He was really pissed at what happened, but seeing as the R33's owner was just an 18 year old student, he really couldn't get angry at him all that much, more so when the JZX90's owner was Koro-sans friend, who advised him to just let it go.

These are some pictures shown to me by Koro-san, moments before absolute chaos had occured.









Believe or not, he told me that he cried while looking at the car after the accident, his pride and joy, crashed and damaged within a matter of seconds. This is one of the biggest aftermaths of the crash. Rear side of the quarter panel is dented inward. It's gonna take some skills and A LOT of elbow grease to get this back in shape.







The rear bumper is demolished, beyond repair. I'll have to replace it. Looks like the impact also dented the hell out of that muffler. Ouch.



After Koro-san handed me the keys, I started it up, took a bit of hard starting, sounded like a bad battery, a dirty MAF, and a dirty/faulty Cam Angle Sensor. BUT, it sounded much beefier than when I last remembered, back with its previous owner. I proceeded to move it out into the light.

Popped the hood, and what was under confirmed my suspicions. This car is no longer powered by an S13 SR20DET, but rather an R33 RB25DET. I thought it was an RB20DET (hence the mistaken header picture caption), but Koro-san walked me through and explained it all. The SR was apparently on its last breath following a bad tune and a limiter bash at a few of Koro-san's sessions, and eventually, cylinder 3 leaned out, destroying the piston head, bending the connecting rod, bending 2 valves, and cracking a hole on the side of the cylinder wall. Unepic. This RB25DET is relatively stock, apart from a red-painted valve cover (RB20 style), An HKS Air Filter, and some generic FMIC from Super Autobacs. Also sports a full Kakimoto Exhaust too, albeit now with a dented tip.



The interior is pretty much the same as when he bought it, with the exception of a new Bride R-Style Bucket Seat, and a modified Cusco Rollcage. The quality of this cage is pretty good, it might've passed through MACKAY's hands at one point, before being bought and fitted by Koro-san haha.







Standard issue relocated battery, as is the norm on S-Chassis.



Aaaaand then there's this gem, it's the OEM Rear Lip, he managed to salvage it after that rear bumper got absolutely crumpled. Since it (obviously) can't be installed right now, it sits on the rear seats.



For some reason I always seem to get into the sellers'/buyers' good graces after I buy or sell cars from/to them, and Koro-san is no exception. First of all, I cajoled him and sympathized about what happened to it. I then proceeded to tell him all of the JUICY plans I have for it, promising to do it justice, that it will look better than it ever did. This is the start of a humble beginning, I mentioned. With that, he was pleased and said, "Name your offer, I trust that you'll give me a price that will leave both of us winning." I let go of my offer, I said that my original plan for this car was to snag it off of him for 480,000 yen (V$4,800), but, since I like him and I wouldn't want him to lose on his end of the deal, I raised it up to 580,000 yen. With Koro-san's grin slowly transitioning into an infectious smile, we shook hands. He even threw me a special favor, he's including all his sets of wheels for this thing! The R33 stockies are no more, sadly. But he's packaging in a whole set of Gram Lights 57Cs, HINODEX FORTECS Squrossas, and R34 stockies (with one damaged wheel from the collision, of course, or at least that's what I thought, because I asked him about it, he said his friend sourced him one in the exact same color as his set! This guy is pretty much as lucky as me.)

And on that pleasant bombshell, I was off. We shook hands once again, and I drove away slowly, as we waved each other goodbye.



Of course I couldn't carry all 3 sets of wheels inside the S14, so I had to come back in my FC1, but that's not important.



Along the way I started getting a feel for the whole car, suspension seems to be in great shape, I was told this has brand new Nismo bushings on. Now there's some slight rubbing when turning hard right, probably due to the bad fender and its liner hitting the tire.



Eventually I had to stop and see if I could remedy the problem at least temporarily. I removed the fender liner and put it in the trunk. Should be good. After that I simply took more pics, because the battle-machine look sort of grew on me. Reminds of the Need For Speed: Pro Street days, with Ryan Cooper and his RMS13 240SX.





And then I was off, again. About a good 40+kms in I saw my fuel gauge drop down to empty, thankfully I was coming up on this ENEOS nearby. Oh yeah, speedometer isn't wired in since the signals are different, at least, that's what Koro-san said, but I think the cluster is broken, partly broken.



Mandatory gas station pic? Mandatory gas station pic.



Full tank? You bet. After this I realized how surprisingly less fuel thirsty the RB25 was compared to my expectations. It's a VCT Motor, but NEO is still non-existent. It sounds HEAVENLY by the way. Real rough, bassy, and beefy. Low RPM pulls still feel rewarding. Enjoyed the car so much in fact, that I started speeding up, and eventually reached the city of Shibuya in less than an hour's time. At which point I phoned up Niatross and Macaron_moon (LS Swap Muzahid & Bento Box Marc) to come and meet me at WestKyo, because I had a SPECIAL SURPRISE FOR THEM, HUE.

Don't tell anyone, but I "accidentally" yeeted my clutch release and "unintentionally" revved the car up to 5k RPMs, "mistakenly" causing the back end to kick out as I drifted the car through 2 (maybe 3?) streets, not on purpose of course. :lolhitting:







And yeah, I got closer and closer, (totally not driving harder and more aggressively)





Until I arrived at WestKyo, with a missing rear bumper. I wonder where that went? It surely couldn't have had something to do with my driving, I was SUPER careful. HMMMMM. And anyways, the license plates are inside the glove compartment. (I am grateful to God for his guidance, I didn't get pulled over on this trip.) O:-) (Also if y'all see an S14 rear bumper lying on the streets of Shibuya, please throw it away, thanks.)



And there the boiz were. JAWS dropped to the floor. Muzahid dancing and jumping, Marc rubbing his eyes in disbelief. Then I briefed them about it, and we all had a good laugh, after they almost cried from the horrors of this S14's backstory. Which gave Marc the motivation to start building Muzahid's S13 ASAP, and likewise, Muzahid gathered the initiative to complete the 1JZ-GTE swap on his GA70. So I parked the S14 next to their Evos, and called it a day.



Welp, that's it. Thanks for taking the time to read this fairly long RP update. The S15 should be finishing up paint soon, so there's that. And we might be going to Osaka this week as well. Stay tuned, and stay cool VStanced!

Sure thing! Idk, I'm an S-Chassis purist and as much as I prefer the SR20 (Even though the one you put in was an S13 SR it was still rad), the RB25 is kind of growing on me haha. And YAP NP, we're gonna bring this car back to its former glory!

S15 done!


Small update compared to the previous one, but oh well. So yeah, picked up Project Strawberry from Benny's and dropped it off at the crib. The color? It's a secret HAHAHAHA. Nah, you'll find out soon enough.





Then the next morning I set off to WestKyo in C-REX.



For a more detailed and elaborate depiction (with included dialogue!), check out Niatross' RP! Anyway, when I got to WestKyo (pics on Niatross' RP), I saw Marc feeling drousy, and Muzahid feeling a bit dreary. To be honest, I wasn't feeling my best either, so drove to the nearest Burger King, and ordered all of us a cup of BK Joe each.





That's all for now. Thanks for reading!

Henlo I'm still not ded


Ayyyy I've been super busy these past couple weeks but amongst all of the stuff I had (and still have) to take care of at the Law Firm (OORP: Studies) and Accounting Firm (OORP: IRL Car Stuff), I managed to squeeze out this post in order to keep you guys posted on the latest progress of my cars. And oh yeah, our unforgettable Osaka Trip!

Go and check out Erwin's (ErwinFenyvesi23's) RP and check out our spectacular vacation at Osaka, special guests include Macaron_moon, Niatross, Lagano, and Franklin! Go and hop on there what are you waiting forrrrrr

Alrighty! So I've been tasked to cover part of the journey to our previously mentioned Osaka Trip, and that was the MickeyD's run.

MACKAY, his wife (MACKAY's a lucky man goddamn), Erwin and Muzahid (Niatross) all rode inside MACKAY's retro F82 M4 for this McDonald's Drive. This thing caught me by surprise, it definitely turns heads!



And of course next is the CZ4A Evo X that you guys all know and love, driven by non other than Marc (Macaron_moon)!



Lastly, is my C-REX, I missed driving this car. Sometimes I feel like selling it, but one trip down with VTEC in full swing always makes me change my mind, and this is no exception.



NOTHING BUT GOOD TIMES WITH THESE BOYS! The standard fast food will turn into gourmet cuisine when you're with these guys, that's how much fun you will have haha. We talked about all sorts of stuff, from how fun Japan is right now, to Icon Motorsports x Kami-Sama Speed Factory, building Muzahid's GA70 inside MACKAY's Garage (Check out Niatross' RP for more deets), fabbing an exhaust for my S14, and even a planned BBQ organized by Marc and Erwin (Be sure to keep your eyes on Macaron_moon's RP for the coverage)

RUN THE SUNSET トみバ


Running shots for you guys, it's pretty shocking how almost equally matched these cars are in terms of acceleration



Imagine cruising down the expressway with an F82 M4, a CZ4A Evo X, and an EF8 CR-X! It was EXTREMELY exhilarating.



This is the last picture I took, when we were cooling our cars (and ourselves) down by the expressway shoulder.



It was a pretty fun trip!! We enjoyed every bit of it, and are definitely down for more. OH btw, I was able to meet up with the Osaka Honda Community during my stay, but sadly I wasn't able to take pictures due to my phone battery dying at the wrong time. BUT, I CAN REVEAL that C-REX will be having ANOTHER makeover soon!

Now, onto my projects!

S14 レベルアップ!


This past week has been good! I dropped the car off at VStanced Garage (Mie Branch) to get some bodywork done. I'm quite impressed at the quality of work they were able to deliver!

All stripped down here



The bumper core support had to be straightened, thankfully the body guys at VStanced Garage were very skilled with their hands.



The back, however, is where a lot of the work has been done



The boys have done their magic yet again, the panel is as straight as my gender!

After being satisfied by their work, I had them fit the parts I ordered about a month ago when I brought the S14 home. A pair of Vertex Kouki S14 Vented Fenders at 49,000 yen (V$490/pair) from the Vertex HQ, a used OEM Zenki S14 Rear Bumper which was snagged for 19,000 yen on Yahoo! Japan Auctions (V$190). The total labor cost of the work done on the S14 came out to 45,000 yen (V$450), including all installation and materials, even though yes the parts aren't painted yet, but the rear quarter panel area has been primed and is ready for paint.

Here are the parts laid out before installation





OH YEAH almost forgot to mention. During the Osaka Trip, I was talking to MACKAY in his garage about ordering those ISR Performance Twin Blast Pipes from EnjukuRacing, and he immediately interrupted me. He was like "Pffft, why pay for shipping and shit, let's fab one up right here!"

And that he did. Amazing quality, and it only set me back 9,000 yen (V$90)!!

Have some pictures with everything installed on the car







Where do I go from here you ask? I literally have no idea HAHAHAHAHA. I am EXTREMELY open to color suggestions so just drop them down below! Also if you haven't already noticed, I am now running a full set of Fortecs Squrossas from Koro-san. Took the 57Cs off and put them onnnnnnnnn.....

S E G W A Y


プロジェクトイチゴ! S15


Project Strawberry yo! Now in her latest flavor, OEM S15 Color Super Red (AJ4)! The CF hood has been repainted as well, looks cleaner overall! Over the past few weeks leading up to the respray I was able to collect some goodies for it, including a one-off 8,000 yen (V$80) front lip from Y!JA, and some OEM S15 Spec R Aero Rear Skirts for 19,000 yen (V$190) on UP Garage. Total cost of labor and paint at Benny's? A mere 65,000 yen (V$650), all worth it considering the fit and finish!

On the pespective of shoes, I threw in the R34 stockies with some bald econo tires on the rear that I got with the S14, and I am now running the 17 inch 57Cs that were previously in the S14, in front. I'll be getting some new tires outfitted to the R34 stockies over the weekend. They DID come with caps and I do plan on putting them on, but idk I think the capless look is growing on me, we'll see how it all pans out. Aaaaand I slammed the FUCK out of those Tein FlexZ Coilovers.







The rears are tucking H A R D





That's all for now! Apart from the rest of the R34 wheels being installed, I've also set up an appointment with VStanced Garage to sticker tune my car and windows, I'm already compiling the slaps and stickers as we speak haha. Stay tuned!

That time we spent together was probably one of the best weeks I had this year, thanks once again for coming my dudes! ♥

Damn, you and your photography skills really makes my M4 look beautiful as fuck, not to mention your masterpiece CRX and Macaron's EVO, basically three different generations of cars. Also I couldn't be happier to be involved with such builds, your cars and etc. Both Silvia's coming along so nicely, my man have amazing taste in mods he does. :thumbsup:

Indeed it was! I still kind of have an Osaka Trip hangover and I wanna go back haha. But damn, that was EXTREMELY satisfying, physically, emotionally, my goodness.

Thanks for the hookup on the muffler! The quality is top notch I and wouldn't have had it any other way haha

Added 34 minutes later:

UPDATES!


Remember when I said C-REX was getting a makeover? Yup!






I brought these home from Osaka, thanks Yuri from the Osaka Honda Community! Bagged these babies for a reasonable 150,000 yen (V$1,500), mint af! And if you haven't already noticed, I took the livery off. Keeping the vibe simple for now, at least until I garner enough ideas for my next livery.

NOW, onto the S15!


Long story short, I straight traded my 17 inch TE37s for Muzahid's 18 inch Weds Kranze Cerberus IIs. Put them on the car ASAP and I say they do clash pretty nicely. I specifically bought these wheels as showcase wheels/spares. So expect to see them on occasions aside from dailying, such as Ebisu tandems, or car meets. I'll be juggling between them and the R34 stockies from time-to-time.

Yeah so anyways, I brought the car to VStanced Garage for the sticker tune. Gave them the stickers and they did the rest.

Before pics:





While waiting I walked over to a nearby The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf for a Southern Blend Iced Tea. Good beverage!! About an hour later, I returned and picked the car up. I WAS SO EXCITED, that I forgot to take pictures at VS Garage. But, don't fret! Paid them the reasonable 7,500 yen (V$75) for labor and materials then drove straight to WestKyo, and mounted the full set of R34 wheels I had, now with some fresh new rubber, none other than some Advan Neova A048s that I bought at Super Autobacs for 120,000 yen (V$1200)! At this point I was contemplating whether to put the caps on or not.

Caps on:





Caps off:





With some serious thonking done, I went with the latter setup, capless ftw! After which I drove to Shibuya, and that's where I stopped and took some pictures.





Then my last stop for that day was my favorite parking lot for pictures, the lighting at night thanks to those light poles is absolutely ASTONISHING.









Let me know what you guys think of the latest Project Strawberry iteration! I'm digging it so far. Also drop those S14 color suggestions down below!

Finances:
V$68,969.52 - V$1,500 - V$1,200 - V$75 = V$66,194.52

You are crazy, how the fuck are you supposed to drive such a low STATIC car man, I couldn't, but you seem to do it just fine haha! It looks like it is on air with such "tuck" setup, even tho it looks very hot I can already imagine the pain while driving it and scrapping the underneath, aahhh. Also CRX looks very beautiful livery-less, I missed that look. :thumbsup:

Boi the S15 is just PURE FIRE! :O
Also, what are your plans with the C-REX now?

As of the S14 color, orange/vermillion or dark purple would be nice.Or a very,very dark green, as dark as the one on Lotus Carlton/Lotus Omega
Still following the damn train since 1992

WDYM, THE S15 IS FAR FROM FINISHED

Hmmm yeah the OEM S15 Yellow seems nice. And I'll do a livery on when something cool pops up. Right now I'd prefer the car to be lowkey (Not that it's the police are looking for it or anything hehe)

# Soju : That S15 <3

:-X

# MACKAY : You are crazy, how the fuck are you supposed to drive such a low STATIC car man, I couldn't, but you seem to do it just fine haha!

Hahahaha, well the roads over here are silky smooth so driving this low isn't much of a chore at all. And it's not my daily so things are less likely to go haywire. Thanks for the compliments! I'm slowly starting to dig the CR-X's livery-less look too haha :)

# marcus915 : S15 is looKING FIRE A F

Look who's TALKING GUY WITH FLY S15 AND R34 AND JZA80

But thank uuuu <3

Thanksssss! This is definitely my favorite iteration of the S15. C-REX is staying lowkey for a while haha.

Yeah I was also thinking of a dark purple or green, something unique but not loud. I'll look into it, thanks for the idea!

# Nightrunner : Oh yap , you´ve done everything that i´ve wanted to do ! Fuck , now i want another one , wait , i might or might not buy one pretty soon



HMMMMMMM U ALREADY HAVE AN S15 TOO DON'T YOU

# Renaruto : Oooo Yes TEs on the Rex are looking nice! And the S15 is just.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA N U U U T

TEs look good on just about EVERY car. And THANKSSSSSS B :cheers:

Added 1 hour 31 minutes later:

YEEY


More mods have come for FaCe1, the daily Civic FC1! Got myself a fancy Hondata FlashPro to harness the extra unchurned horses under the hood. For V$695, I had it ordered and installed at Spoon's Type One Shop, inclusive of a V$90 dyno session, and around V$300 fabrication and extra parts. 180 hp and 177 lb-ft as advertised.

Figures before the FlashPro? A surprising 180 whp and 175 wtq, bone stock!! Those are some pretty healthy figures.





Now with the FlashPro, new intake, new exhaust, new test pipe. We ended up getting a final figure of 233 whp and 268 wtq! That is a HUGE increase (+53 whp and +93 wtq increase!)

That was super epic. On that happy bombshell I shook the people of Type One's hands and proceeded to my way home. I took a longcut via this winding road pass for extra FUN. It ended up being an impromptu solo touge session, and I enjoyed it a LOT.

ENEOS Pre-Flight Check-Up. Fluids, Check. Transmission, Check. Engine, Check. Suspension, Check. Wheels, Check. Brakes, Check. Happiness, CHECKERINO.



And so it began.









Somewhere near the peak I stopped for a bathroom break. I resumed the trip after about 5 minutes of resting and scenery admiring.





A few more kilometers and I was finally at the peak. Beautiful trees, a calming breeze, and the perfect weather made me feel that I was in my element. I should come back in the S15 or the CR-X or the S14.





After all the slight hooning I was finally at home. Got dressed out of my work clothes and into the casuals, and went ahead to WestKyo

Over there I did some work on C-REX. I finally got around to mounting some Advan Neovas on those TE37s, and installing them on the car. PHENOMENAL. The car feels lighter, more rigid, and more grippy. It's amazing what a good wheel and tire combo can do. 100,000 yen (V$1,000) for a set of 205/50/R15 AD08Rs + free installation. Super worth it!





And now the S14. Apparently, the OEM Kouki Front Bumper I had on it wasn't really OEM at all. I bought some brand new Kouki Bumper Lights off of a nearby Nissan Dealer for 34,000 yen (V$340) and surprisingly, they didn't fit! Brackets were non-existent, and the overall shape didn't even match. So at that point I got myself a genuine OEM Kouki Front Bumper, brand new from Nissan! I paid a hefty 50,000 yen (V$500) for it, luckily the price already included the paint-matching and painting (even though I'll probably repaint this car in another color. But, oh well).

Aside from that, I was also lucky enough to get my hands on a used OEM Kouki Rear Bumper and OEM Kouki Front Grile! 20,000 yen (V$200) and 10,000 yen (V$100) respectively, off Up Garage.

I rattle canned my fenders white just so I could kind of tie the whole look together. Not too bad but will need a thorough respray in the future. Paint was a mere 3,000 yen (V$30) off Super Autobacs.

Last change, the wheels. I swapped out the Fortecs Squrossas for a set of (F:17x9.5 +30 R:17x9.5 +12, wrapped in 235/40/R17 Dunlop Sport Maxx RTs all around) Gram Light 57Cs I had laying around. The offset on these ones are much lower, hence the more aggressive, much better fitment. My Squrossas are now for sale if anyone's interested, V$850 gets em!





And lastly, Project Strawberry. No updates apart from the feedback that it HANDLES AMAZING. Almost stock SR20DET with raised boost, paired with some sticky Advan Neovas A048s and it still manages to slide good! The Tein coilovers are holding up fantastically as well. The only gripe I have is that the WiseFab setup this car has (Nightrunner installed it a while back when it was still his) feels kind of overkill in terms of countersteer steering angle. So I'll be selling the WiseFab Angle Kit as well, I'm also willing to swap this kit to an OEM setup, just slide into my DMs for offers!







Finances:
V$66,194.52 + V$940 (Weekly Paycheck x1) - V$695 - V$90 - V$300 - V$1,000 - V$340 - V$500 - V$200 - V$100 - V$30 = V$63,879.52
