It Tsukuba's day!

I arrive with Big Smoke and Frank. Big Smoke gave me the lesson about Tsukuba corners, so I'm gaining more knowledge about Tsukuba corners, I drop off him at the pit stop, and I could hear him yell "GO GO GO!" I floored Tango after the exit pit stop. I was starting with slow, and more manageable but I become rougher and getting to faster the laps...

Here record sheet, my timed laps so far.
1. 1:20.40 [Rolling start]
2. 1:17.45
3. 1:15.02
4. 1:13.56
5 1:10.03
6. 1:09.34
7. 1:25.67

I did spin out on 7th laps, and it stalled self because S2K have a problem with roll centre. I was laughing myself and finish off the 7th laps then I enter the pit and letting Frank drive my Tango. He was always to wanted drive S2k, so I thought it was nice to give him my Tango to go around the track. Meanwhile Frank is driving Tango, I did Big Smoke's Silver Queen to help him to do improving his laps time, we adjusting suspension, boost and tyre pressure. We kept on the record, so we knew which adjusted setting was best for fastest the lap timing.

Frank smiled at his face. He was thanks to me for letting him drive my S2k. I wanted to one more go before we are leaving the track. I go around to start as the rolling start, I being on racing line to the first corner, I steer but my rear tyres were sudden losing traction and catching the ditch, and it went spins out, and I attempted to stop spinning out same time, I did shit my pant. I failed to try stopping it and rear bumper being rubbed and ripped off from barrier then my engine coolant was boiling hot and very steamy out of the hood. I felt like I am just got heart attacked, and shaking. I allowed entering pit wrong way. My rear bumper was hanging off and scrapping on the track and pit.

Big Smoke was jaw dropped for the min, he was expecting I was having mayor crashed, but lucky it was the only minor. He noticed my rear passenger side wheel position seen wasn't normal compared to the driver side. We knew that suspension has broken case given me to spin out, and my radiator has leaked, so I have rings to tow service give towed my S2k to my garage.

((OORP:
1. My crappy SLRR don't want to load the track, and it wants to crashing at all time, and I have no choice, but I have to upload without the photo.
2. I'm very busy in real life, and I haven't much time to do refreshing SLRR.))

My wallet...
Starting cash ~ 16,915 V$.
Fuel ~ - 40 V$
Tow service ~ - 150 V$
Total leftover ~ 16,725 V$.

Glad both of you had so much fun in Tsukuba! :D
You've already scored a great lap time out there, I'm sure it'll get better as you improve your consistency as well as tune Tango.

My prediction about the S2K being oversteer-happy was half-correct though, and it has costed you a hell lot :(
At least you've came out safe and sound, we're glad for that. We thought we have to rush you to the hospital...... :))
Even the marshalls are kind enough to red flag the session just so you can come back quickly via the pit exit :D

But then again, now Tango is out of action and needs extra care to be sorted out. Here's hoping the restoration goes quick and well O:-)

(Speaking of which, my update will come soon and has the pictures so don't worry ;) )

I bet marshalls has noticed Tango have smokey from the hood. I could see that steaming, possible that reason to give red flag so I could enter pit quickly. Lucky I got Demio which is I bought from you, so I could drive it while Tango is fixing. Hope adjusting your Silver Queen is improved your performance and time the laps.

Well of course they did, the crash was quite audible from the paddock as well.
As of the red flag, it is their job to make everyone at the track safe after all! :D

Yea, because coolant fluid is a slippy hazard, if they don't the red flag, somebody would be skidded and spinning out.

You will need new coolant system, some bodyparts, fix the suspension issue/upgrading it and check if the impact doesn't broke or bent the driveshaft, rear shafts, differential, brake lines, and also checking for damages to the oilpan , transmission oil pan and any kind of leaks.
Drop it to SLP so we can check it in detail and see how bad is the damage.

The grown of vehicle size.

I was relaxing at my new crib, and I am doing strolling on FaceBook, my friend name Maya. She got in for Tokyo University, I commented her news feed; “Well done for into University and it can be nail-biting because most people get declined, it like 10% chance for accept. I’m very impressed it.”
She did reply to my comment with her reaction are heart shape; “Thank you so much, it like my dream is coming true! I must be busier and grading each of the lessons. Speaking of, I need smaller and easier to drive in Tokyo. I hear you got Mazda Demio. I could trade my Zenki S14. It needs to repair rattle top end and servicing. I haven’t got much time to get sorted out.”
I replied her comment and I reaction wow; “Sound good, because I don’t need the small car anymore because my girlfriend disliked me, I moved out to the better place. I think Zenki S14 will do for me. Ring me, if you are not busy.”

After we chatted on the phone and I arrive at her father tofu business. I saw her beautiful Moondust Silver, which is that Ford colour code, know as it not a factory colour, but it does look lovely. Original colour is Flame Red. Sadly it has been left sunny spot near the sea, so it has been left to rots due sea salts. Thankful, Maya and her dad helped to saved poor S14 to restored shells, it has been professionally welded and painted, and so it means the shell is solid and no rusted. I’m impressed, it was cleaned and well looking after interior and exterior, the brake is Z32 turbo front and rear system, with lovely 18 inch Advan TC3 rim with wrapped Michelin Plot Sport tyres, and she has slightly lowered spring fitted. It looking nice, the power is all standard SR20DET but, it got HKS air filter panel and custom turbo back stainless steel twin pipe exit exhaust system. Also she has 5-speed manual transmission.




I did not do the test drive, because it may have broken rocker arm, I was a bit disappointed with not having a test drive, it have slight loss of power, but it would be nice to drive, once it fixed. Rattle on the top end, it likely commonly damaged rocker arm, case loss of power. Maya are love with Mazda Demio, like it everything she needs, small and comfortable drive. We did the deal. Her S14 cost 4000 V$ (suspect rocker arms are broken. Therefore the price is lowered), and my Mazda Demio is 2000 V$, which is I have to pay 2000 V$ extra. I’m having tofu for lunch while waiting for the tow service arrives.

Okay S14 is at my crib driveway, I'm still searching the garage, and let move on my S14 plans...

I’m going to daily it, no drifting abused or at all. Just lovely and drive around, a possible car show of course, and the modified. I wanted to add bit more power, I’m going to upgrade from factory fitted intercooler on the passenger side, and front to nice front mount for improving horsepower and air temperature, and replace all rockers arm plus adding rocker stopper, and maybe other parts going to add, I haven’t thought about it mostly.

I think I need to stop selling a car so much lol. Tango update is soon, it is at my friend work garage due no space.

My wallet...
Starting cash ~ 16,725 V$
Tow service ~ - 150 V$
S14 extra ~ - 2000 V$
Total leftover ~ 14,575 V$

Well at least the Demio is going to be more useful to others O:-)

You gotta shop for S14 parts first since you're going to daily it, obviously you can't drive it while worrying over damages it currently suffered from ;)

EDIT: And don't forget to update your paycheck amount at the next update, it's already past 50 posts here! :thumbsup:

The death of Tango.

My Tango is current at my friend workshop, today I was shocked by my friend on text, and I texted to him.

Friend: Yo, the Tango is gone! I'm not kidding!
Me: Fuck man, where is? Did you mix up the vehicle order? Like two S2k are same.
Friend: Shit, my worker must be confused between two same S2K, one of our the customer total her S2K, and I order my worker sent S2K to scraps. I just checked, and he picked Tango instead of the customer S2K.
Me: FUCKKK! MAN! TELL WORKER TO STOP! DONT CRUSHED TANGO!
Friend: I try ringing to him, and he refused to pick up.
Me: Where scrapyard, you sent to?
Friend *Address of Scrapyard*
Me: My S14 is still waiting to repair because the rocker arms are broken. Can you drive to scrapyard before it happens?
Friend: I will!

And I been walking around my crib and very worry myself. I don't want to lose Tango. After, 1 and half hours and I kept texting to him, and no reply, until 3 hours later, he did text back after I spammed him the text.

Friend: Sorry! I'm sorting out company insurance paperwork, and I did stack the worker.
Me: Don't tell me Tango are crushed!
Friend: I try my best, and I caught traffic, then I arrive too late. I saw claw grabber healed tango, and violence moving then it dropped on the mountain of cars.

I started boiled and lose my temper then I texted to him.

Me: FUCK SAKE! I WAS PLANNED TO MAKE TANGO GRIP TRACK CAR, AND YOU LET WORKER CONFUSED THE WRONG CAR, YOU WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION! YOU HAVE OWNED ME WHAT COST OF TANGO THAT I SPENT!
Friend: Chill out man! That why I am sorting out the insurance!
Me: Don't speak again! I'm angry.

I threw my phone to the other side of the room wall, and I went bar then I went drunk myself, while my phone was at home.
Next morning, I got the hangover, I have seen my phone screen cover cracked, that I threw my phone to the wall. I got the text from Big Smoke about his the result.

His text:
"Hey, Buzz! I made the 5th place on time attack event, the setting of my Silver Queen was spot on, and it made squeezed few secs off. I owned you to thanks for helping the adjustment."

I was impressed, but I am still upsetting about Tango.
Maybe, I should lay low for a while, of course, I would fix my S14 same time I am laying low. I am planned to holiday to the place call Tenerife, Spain for a couple of weeks, so that reason is; I been so rough lately, my girlfriend ditches to me, and losing my beloved Tango.
Notice: My lay low will finish when I upload the update of my S14.

OORP:

Just to let you know, I got the better computer will be arriving soon when I change the computer, I may restart my RP. I think I am kinda messed up, too much mistaken, like quickly selling, and crashing, and dramatic, I think it may better to restart rp. I may do reset it or not, depends how I want it.

Like making more better RP, like more details, and nicer.
