You change cars soo often. Some day I'm gonna sell everything I own and buy more money dumps, as you do.

# marcus915 :
welp, finally sold the Y33 for 450,000yen, and the suspension for 225,000yen. Lasted about a month before I ruined it and realized I couldn't keep it because an automatic boat is just not fun enough for me. Back to dailying the JZA80 and S15!
But in my constant search for a car that I can comfortably drive, I hit the auctions looking and of course, something that I wanted BADLY came up. Plus i just got a raise at work..so..





2007 Nissan Fairlady Z Nismo, fully stock except for Swift lowering springs. Late model car, so VQ35HR instead of DE, 83,000km, and Nismo suspension makes this thing a hell of a lot more fun than a normal Z. These things are super cool because they come with staggered wheel fitment from stock, and well, its a Nismo Z. Starting bid was around 1,100,000yen, which was VERY low for what it is, but I decided to fucking jump on it. Couple minutes later, it's in my possession for 1,550,000yen ($15,500), which is a steal for a genuine Nismo Z. Did all the insurance work, passed the shakken and now its road legal till next February!

15k was a steal for a Nismo! It's always nice to have a limited edition car like that, but then again you can't go so crazy on mods. Your choice about that tho! :D

I just can't seem to be happy with a car for long, which is why I've been trading up so often. I need to stop jumping on cars just because they're good deals and more so cause I like them.

Yeah! But you know me I'm probably going to fuck this one up eventually LOL
First mod - clear lens for the OEM tails!

Lowered the Z on a set of only the best, 326power Chakuriki coilovers, valved for 12k/10k which retains pretty decent driveability. Super scared about smashing my Nismo aero but I've been through this more than once before! Took it for a skid to see if it does what it should and it does, g r e a t.

Damn, congratulations on the Nismo man! You just brought back so many memories to me of my previous 350z's.. I definitely need to get my third one sometime later this year, and I will be set. Anyways welcome to #Zociety family man!

thanks dude! i seen your old Z's, they were pretty nice. Can't say your purple one didn't have a bit of an influence on the decision to buy one.
Updating my other cars since they've been pretty off the grid!

JZA80

This car got a new set of shoes - traded up my TE37's for a set of Nismo LMGT1 in perfect Supra fitment, with tires. Also scored an OEM wing for 10,000yen so like, get itt.





she makes a g r e a t street drift car.



PS13

This is my workhorse at the moment other than the Z. Though now that I have the Z, this car is a little redundant..I love it so much though, I may park it, pull insurance, and go all out. Painted up the aero not long ago, and took apart my crystal tails and removed the red lens.



ZN6

This car has been so much fun on track. Need need need to hit more track days.





RPS13

Dropped it off at the Japan branch VStanced Garage to get the aero and everything painted up. This will be fresh as fuck once it's back. I'm tired of the red that's been on this car since the day I bought it, so this will be a major change up. Also going back to a popup front end made me fall in love all over again.





The Z gets a new set of wheels tomorrow!

# skip : That's very brave to drift a relatively stock supra. What's it like?
i mean, it is a Supra so its quite a feeling to begin with. But it does have a good suspension setup to reduce the boaty feeling of a stock one, because it still is a really heavy car (also partly due to the fact that I refuse to tear out any of the interior to keep the street car feel).
I've never taken this car to the track, this has stayed exclusively on streets past midnight doing sideways things and does daily duty during the day without skipping a beat. With the extended steering knuckles too, I get a little extra angle and it feels good. Could use a bit more power but it'll spin third relatively easily.

Here's a collection of snaps from me driving this thing on the street in a less than legal manner

My new wheels came in for my Z!
Rays Gramlight 57C6 in 18x9.5j +12 square wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE-01 tires that are close to new.









Absolutely in love with this machine now!

Paid 160,000yen + 30,000yen for the tires, which is my entire paycheck for the past week.

@Skip get back in the S-Chassis game! Just kidding don't. They're trash.

I swear the Z is still a daily!!





Installed a set of R34 Brembos over the weekend with a couple of my Cooldown team members. Scored the brakes for 120,000yen on YJP.



Also put on a set of Top Secret canards I was given by my friend Pedrosa from an old Z he never finished, and we threw on some stickers and took it on track during a private day at Nikko for the hell of it.





Car didn't skip a beat! Perfect street car.

HEY its a daily, and it makes a GREAT street car >:( + good!!!!




Last time I took my FR-S out on track, I managed to destroy all of my Varis aero (rip $$). It's FAR too expensive to replace constantly so I just went back to the cheaper Chargespeed Type I bumpers I have from before the transformation and golly me.





Carbon side splitters and canards from Origin Lab custom fitted spice things up nicely, and a C-West GT wing changes up the look nicely. Love the new look tons!

yep they're Minervas! One of my favorite wheels. Thanks dude! You should totally build one.
Would anyone be interested in my PS13? I've kinda found no use for this car at this point since I have my Fairlady/S15 for daily driving, and I already have another S13 (my 180SX). I'm really wanting to buy a piece of shit I can build again because ever since I've let the Cooldown guys help me work on my 180SX I haven't had a project in a while. If nobody wants to buy, I'll just part out some stuff on it and put it aside till I find the motivation to build it.

91 Nissan PS13 Silvia
-113,00km
-SR20DE
-Apexi cold air intake
-Straight pipe to 2.5in twin blast pipes
-Z32 five lug hubs (sold the stock four lugs to conkaa)
-G-Corp front bumper (pending sale)
-Full clear taillights
-B-Wave wing
-Type X skirts and style rear valance
-Uncracked dash (uncommon!!)

Shoot me an offer, I'm looking to get maybe 700,000-800,000yen ($7000-$8000) for the whole car.

my friend came by my shop today with his uber cool Daewoo Tico. Slammed to the floor and on 13 inch Impuls - such a fucking cool car. Also sold my G-Corp bumper to skip, so Aero bumper is back on.





Snapped a couple shop photos.





Oh, and that Mark II back there? ;)

so about that mark ii..






1985 Toyota GX71 Mark II. Has 158,000k's on the chassis and used to be my friend's project car. Picked it up from him for 350,000yen. originally came with a 1G-GE - long gone now.



In here is an RB25DE, a very special one, as it is out of my old ER34:



The OEM turbo blew up when in the ownership of my friend, so he pulled everything apart and converted the motor to N/A. Utilizing RB26 independent throttle bodies, and modified trumpets off an AE101 Corolla, he's pieced together a beautiful motor with a custom fabricated N/A exhaust manifold. He gave up on the project because he simply ran out of money, and I thought I might as well finish this project and take it in a direction I want to go with.



Suspension wise it is running a full S13 front subframe, JZX81 tie rods, Xcessive Manufacturing top hats, and S13 rear suspension and S13 326power coilovers that could use a refresh.

It currently needs a tune, new injectors, battery, and an alternator, not to mention some rust under the rear right fender well, but this is a great base to build a sick street machine out of.

# MACKAY : Damn Marcus! I love how your Z' is progressing ! Also that RB25 is very similar to the one I built for my S30, any ideas on the power output?
Thanks man!! I honestly have no idea at the moment - when it was boosted and in my ER34 it made somewhere around 250 wheel horsepower but now with the N/A ITB setup I'd have to guess its making around 170-200whp, need to get it running and on a dyno first.
# skip : you've literally just bought it and it's better than mine wtf
bruh my Mark II is a mess LMAO
Finally had a chance to install my Greddy TI-C single exit catback for my Z, the stock exhaust with resonator delete wasn't cutting it. Also running a modified Turbo TI-C test pipe now so it's basically a straight pipe.






Been mucking around with the suspension setup after the STC88 drift con, realized what needs to be changed, adjusted, but for a stock ish motor car is skids very well.

I'm just waiting on parts today so nothing really to be done, too lazy to work on the Mark II so I decided to just go mob around the city in the Z33 since it is a street car (contrary to what skip believes). Brought out the camera and snapped a couple of photos. Its rolling on a set of drift spares right now cause I haven't had time to mount new tires on my 57C6's yet.







Later in the evening, I got a text from Pedrosa with photos of my now freshly painted RPS13 that I left with him at the garage around two weeks ago..





This is gonna be hopefully the best setup on the car so far, but he's pulled the built SR22VET out of the car and dropped it back off at my place..



Ho ho ho I wonder what could be happening here..

This is what's happening, S13 Tomei SR22VET going into my S15 from my 180SX. I'm going with a different powerplant with my S13 so this car will get the fully dressed up SR.



This is it when it was still in the S13-
