For sure! I might be able to swing by in the Supra or the FR-S as those are the only two working cars I have right now :P
Speaking of which, gotta keep the only daily fresh. Brand new set of Work Meister S1's in 18x10 and 18x11 spec for this car, what a beautiful look..





Nismo wheels going on the 180SX!

The Mark II was never my car to begin with - my friend had just dropped it off at my place cause he offered to pay me 350,000yen to give him a hand with finishing the swap and sourcing the missing panels.




Tuning the RB25DE has been interesting to say the least, but we finished tuning it this morning at 5am so we got a few hours of sleep and hit the track for a test session, and it rips good.



350,000yen in my pocket, and a burning desire to actually get a car for myself now..

Somebody sell me a cool Altezza!

Finances
$34,605 + (1250x5) (income) = $40855
$40855 + $3500 (Mark II work) = $44,355
$44,355 - $10,000 (loose odds and ends for parts these few weeks) = $34,355

It was a great time at Round 2 of STC88's drift con. The Z performed fantastic with the new Parts Shop Max front end. Broke my front bumper on the infamous Minami jump but that's okay.







I think I did okay this round, hopefully turns out a good result!

That was some nice drifting man! But you better fix your front bumper cause it's required at the event. Hope it won't cost you too much to fix it tho!

Thumbs up for not being afraid of ruining a perfect Nismo on the race track haha, because of such fear I sold my silver one and went with cheaper alternative. Also awesome runs man, it is always pleasure to watch 350Z's drifting. If you are still in Ebisu come to me, I have some fiberglass and resin, all the shit to fix cracks and similar things in your bumper, if it is unfixable then we will source you a new one in no time. :thumbsup:

thanks dude! means a lot coming from you since your old Z's were quite an inspiration for me to get one. I feel like a good street car needs to look good and be driven hard, otherwise all show no go ;) I will definitely hit you up to pick up a couple more spare bumpers, I went home right after the event was over because I had some stuff to tend to! Should be good on the spare bumper though.
So the stuff I had to tend to.. After the four hour drive home from Ebisu in my Z, my friend showed up maybe 10 minutes after I parked up and went inside at about 2am - I told him to meet me because prior to leaving I had found a really really tempting car I could not pass up (yep, another fucking car lmao). He came to pick me up in his S14, a really clean street car -



And we set off for a two hour drive to the big AEON Dome City mall in downtown Osaka, where we were going to meet the seller in the big parking lot in the early morning hours.





There it was..



I have longed for an Altezza for the longest time, ever since I got rid of my old one..







2000 Toyota SXE10 Altezza RS200 Z-Edition, the most desirable of the XE10's and with a six speed manual transmission, and Beams 3S-GE. My old one was an L Edition, but this one is far better. Mostly stock, except for an Apexi pod filter and I think Tein coilovers which is a nice bonus. 96,000km which is pretty low for me and I knew I had to have it. Made a 400,000yen deposit, drove together to the bank, and paid the 1,000,000yen asking, and I get to drive away in a beautiful Tezza :')

Finances
$34,355 + $2200 = $36,555
$36,555 - $10,000 = $26,555

# skip : oh god you're turning irish
I'm about to go drift some city roundabouts and sit on the rev limiter for five minutes straight. Irish enough for you?
So it's finally time to reveal the RPS13 in its latest and probably greatest form so far - one month ago, I dropped it off at vStanced Garage to get the chassis freshened up, straightened and painted.



I went today with my friend to pick up the rolling body today since we're still building the motor back home, but here she is.





It's been given a full refresh - BN Sports Type III aero all around, sealed up the cut fenders, and sprayed in a neutral yet cool BP9 Dark Blue Pearl inspired colour, but a little lighter with a bit more pearl in it.



Stored away the clear Koukis for now, and I'm running my old set of D-Max crystal red/whites, which look good to me. Nismo wheels on the rear while I hunt for a matching pair of 17's for the front!



The bay was sprayed bright pink, as per tradition with all my S13's. And as for the motor? You'll get to see what it is when we bring this thing back home and start fitting it in..

Finances
$26,355 +$1200 = $27,555
$27,555 - $4000 (shop labour) = $23,555

Got a bunch of things going on the fly right now, finishing up the S15 swap, putting the 180SX together, fixing the Z33 for Round 3, enjoying the Altezza as a reliable daily, but couldn't help and mess with the Tezza. Adjusted the Tein coilovers it came on and lowered it though these don't quite go low enough, and picked up a set of clear corners at Up Garage for 80,000yen.


Also threw temporary plates on it for now till I get it fully inspected and insured.

# skip : so, Marcus, what ever happened with your old C33? I'm in the market for one....

# marcus915 :
Finally, S15 machine check. It's a 99 Spec R, very well kept, 86,000k's on the clock. Traded the C33 and 40,000 yen on top for this, so far not missing a thing. Rides on Tein Super Drift coilovers with Parts Shop Max arms. Nice upgrade over stock and feels so good to throw around.


Finances -
$68,755 + $38,000 (eight months income from last update 4/12/17)
- $30,000 (shop cost not incl. rent) = $76,755
- $4000 (S15 trade price) = $72,755
- $4300 (Verossa stuff) = $68,355

I traded the C33 months ago for the S15 with cash on top. I know where the car is, not far from me just a little ways out of Osaka in my friend's possession. Still running an SR20DET and still slammed on SSR Formula Mesh wheels. I think he's selling it as it is for 800,000yen? I'll hit him up for you.

Good stuff!
Finally, finally finished the dream S13 SR22 build for my S15.



Threw the full Tomei catalog at this motor - SR22 stroked short block, VET head with P12 cams and adjustable cam gear, Tomei ARMS M7960 on a custom Mazworx topmount manifold, 600cc Tomei injectors, the works. When I dyno'd it while it was in the S13 it made close to 450whp which is fucking nuts. This motor really hasn't changed since I first built it for the S13, but it's an entirely different animal with bigger injectors, a new exhaust manifold, and with the S15 six speed ratios and final drive.



Rana and Pedrosa over at Cooldown helped me assemble this motor back in the day in Ricardo's driveway.



I got it all settled in the S15 a couple days ago and have just been gently driving the car to break it in. This is definitely my favorite car in my entire garage.







I also threw on the 18 inch CST Hiper Zeros from the S13 as well since they were just sitting in my garage, and I think they look just a little better than the VS-KF's.

Before when I first got the car in October



I suspect the car's been in an accident in the past considering how the Nismo bumper refuses to line up, but it hasn't affected the car's alignment or anything so I'm not super bothered. I'm very happy with this car, I might even bring this to STC88 Drift Con Rd.3 ;)

thanks dude!
I've been thoroughly enjoying the S15 lately. But that doesn't mean the newest and current daily doesn't get some love.



Lowered it a little more on the Tein coilovers, they're reaching the bottom of the threads and it may be time to upgrade to 326power coilovers soon!!



Then picked up a set of Advan RS-II's, one of my favorite newer Advan wheels for 80,000yen with tires.





Needs! More! Low!

i will probably lower it till it rubs badly, then get lower profile tires and lower it some more :)
Basic maintenance day! Changed the oil, topped up the windshield washer fluid, replaced the pads, all in all a 20,000yen job said and done.





Really tempted to throw some boost at it, but this thing is so perfect in stock form just like my Nismo Z..and I've already fucked up my other 'daily drivers', Z went full drift car with fully adjustable suspension and angle kit, and the S15 received the full S13 Tomei SR22VET swap..maybe I'll keep this car simple..maybe not.
