With how much I rip on S-chassis, and their owners, I must say, this car is making my mind sway just the littlest bit.

Could definitely use a wing to set it off man! Digging the blacked out look though!
The wheels look super good on there too.

Guess who's baaaaaaaaaack



Sooo... after over half a year (192 days to be precise) i'm back!

What happened while i was away? A lot of stuff!
Since last time:



My 180sx was going through a new stage, but i got caught up with work and some family issues and barely got to drive it since April, only got it out one or two times from the garage until like a month ago. I haven't been at drift events either and both my s13 and s14 have been collecting dust since i've been driving around in my shop van. But what has happened in the meanwhile is me saving up a bunch of cash and with that being said things are going to get spicy from now on.

What did i do for the last month? I've (yet again) reworked my 180sx, this time making it the ultimate spice machine!

Got it fully repainted white on the exterior, paiting the interior, enginebay and rear in a bright pink. Did it all in the shop since one of my collegues is a professional certified painter all i had to buy was the paint which was like 450V$ in total (both white and pink paint), here are some pics of the progress:






I changed my front D-max type 3 front fenders for Origin Labo type-2 (250 v$) fenders because i cracked one of my old D-max ones in half when i went through a pothole that i didn't spot in time. Origin also went ahead and offered me a set of front splitters that im so hyped on running in my front bumper! :D

Also purchased full clear tailights that i found in a trip to UP GARAGE, meaning that i have a set of kouki tails for sale so hit me up if anyone wants them i'll sell them cheap.

What else? Well i (once again) purchased a do-luck type 2 low spoiler after selling my last one i ended up picking another one up because i dig the style of the wing so much, that set me back 699V$ from Yahooauctions.jp. Got a new custom made exhaust as well (250V$) as a d-max roof spoiler (150V$ with shipping) to replace my old one that flew off at the last drift event i took my car too (didn't kill anyone but i got a lot of shit for it)

After putting all the shit together i got myself a set of SSR Agle Minerva in 18x10 +32 all around for 2.3k V$. Still have my Work LS207 i just changed the tyres for the Minervas and i don't plan on selling since i might run them mismatched.



Last week i drove to a friend's garage to apply the brand new vinyls that were printed by RYO Japan (one of the best designers out there that supplies most drift related liveries in japan) and made my car 10x better than before and applied a few window stickers which leads us to this... the ultimate setup i've had in this car, i'm so hyped to go to drift events that are coming this year with my friends from the Cooldown team!





And i'm looking for a new project car so updates on that will come soon! As well as waiting for some more shit i ordered for the 180!


Finances: 10599 + 25782 (192 days without updating the weekly V$) - 2300 (SSR Agle Minerva) - 450 (white and pink paint) - 150 (d-max roof spoiler) - 250 (origin type 2 fenders) - 250 (custom exhaust) - 699 (Do luck type 2 wing) = 32282 V$

# ramalhinho07 : Hey my name is Ramalhinho07 as some of you might know me
I'm 19 years old and been living in Japan, to be more precise in the city of Saitama, since i was 14 years old.
I work at a auto repair shop in Saitama called Nada Engeneering

I recently purchased my 1st car, it's a 1990 Nissan 180SX Zenki a.k.a "Pignose" for 3500V$, quite cheap to be fair.
It has been through rough days but there's no rust that's a good sign, but the paint is faded because the car sat for a long time outside according to the previous owner since he had no garage to put it on. It has a huge dent in the driver's door that i intend to fix ASAP among other stuff like missing trims and the interior is a bit rough as well.

The car is pretty much stock except it has a SR20DE swapped into it instead of the old CA18, it sits on stock suspension (shakes like a muthafucka). The SR has a aftermarket GReddy intake manifold and a Mishimoto radiator.

My plans for it are for now to fix it and slowly get some new parts for it.
I'm also running the Temp Plates until i register my car






Finances: V$ 20000-3500=16500
Where did you get that SR 20 DET?

It's a old fake engine by a friend, don't have it anymore though, but the 3d model belongs to Losstunes if you want it

D-Day


I've been at Saitama for the lastweek on some family related stuff and two days ago i heard a open day drift event was going to happen at Ebisu. Since Fukushima isn't really far i drove the 180sx up there.

So i loaded up my spare set of Work XT7 and drove up there to shred some tyres. It was my first event in ages and first since i've rebuilt my car.

So i got there early in the morning and i meet up with this guy who most people around the drift scene know here in japan.





Yes that's Akinobu Satsukawa, leader of the world known A-BO-MOON drift team! Such a pleasure to meet this guy, he's been one of my idols for years.I had a peek at the r32 once at a event but when i got there they were already leaving.
So i talked with him for a while sharing ideas about our cars was pretty fun.



Then i went on and hit the track, i haven't driven ebisu since the early days of owning this car and the track is as tricky as i remembered it to be!



Glad i took the spare wheels because i asked the guys at the shop to throw some tyres on them and wouldn't have to change tyres on the Minerva's every 5 runs and ruin them even more. Went through a few sets of tyres but at the end it's always worth it. The event was amazing and everyone there super cool too!

After the day ended i took a few shots with the R32 and headed back down to Saitama since i'm going back to Osaka for work next week and i'm waiting for some parts that i have ordered for my car. As for the s14 i should get back to it soon but for now it's all




Finances: 32282 + 940 (monday paycheck) = 33222 V$

Back to Osaka ft. silvia parts


I'm now back in Osaka after the drift event, and decided to give some attention to the silvia now.
And by that i mean to put some work in it!

So what has happened with this thing since last time?



Not much, i've bought some used Vertex sideskirts from the UP GARAGE in Osaka for 300 V$, i'm not even sure on what to do with them to be honest if i'm gonna keep them or paint them, but for now they're staying.




And i got a pretty good deal on a authentic B-Wave wing and a d-max roof spoiler from a friend of mine who parted out his 95' zenki S14, paid 600 v$ for both in total. I already spray painted the roof wing but had to run some errands a bit after so i didn't paint the B-wave yet.

I went for a spin with the s14, it's running a bit rough, i haven't done proper maintenace on it since i bought it.




I borrowed some spare SSR Mesh in 16 that my boss had laying around in his shop while my modenas are getting new tyres, i had a flat tyre when i checked it in the garage rip.

I plan on doing a bit of a street/kyusha style build on this car, i plan on and also getting a 4 door soon as a daily transportation (which at a certain point this Q's Silvia was supost to be).

As for the Silvia i might end up going ITB route, since this is a bone stock SR20DE with a straight pipe "shotgun style" exhaust and it's pretty damn slow.


Finances: 33222 - 300 (vertex skirts) - 600 (b-wave + d-max roof) = 32322 V$

In one of my "very legal street sessions" i may or may not have bumped into a wall and damaged my rear bumper...

I've decided to do a small DIY mod on my tailights, i pinstriped them.
I'm at a love/hate relationship with at the moment but here's a pic of it:




10 V$ worth of vinyl later and a lot of wasted time... but it sure does change the look of the car!

Finances: 32322 - 10 (white vinyl) = 32312 V$

Streetglow



So i got a hook up on some streetglow neons shipped from a buddy on the US and i decided to spice my silvia up! Install was a bit tricky since i'm not much of an eletrician myself i only hooked up the front and rear so far i wanna do the sides soon but i'm a bit out of time for the moment. They set me back about 400V$





And here are mandatory night shots!

Finances: 32322 - 400 (underglow) = 31922 V$

Is there much work for the install? Might pick some up for my build later on. Gonna need something to contrast my paint with.

Everything looking fire as usual too.

I think neons are too ricey for a S14 but yours is slow anyway so it's ok lol. And maybe you put too much tape on the taillights cause they're barely visible now. :P

Also what front grill do you have? It looks nice, might get one for my S14 too.

"Clean" builds are overrated anyway my goal with this car is to get a mix of 90's style with an early 2000's touch

About the grill i actually don't know what brand it is i got it off a friend's totaled silvia

★ Kouki x Zenki ★


Went for a cruise with a old buddy of mine who owns a Silvia K's slammed on Hyper Zero's and a SR20DET.
He got it like a year ago and it has a pretty nifty mod list going from 326 power coils, GTR34 brakes, Nardi Wheel, TOMEI cams, HKS exhaust... while keeping it with a sleek OEM look!

I may or may not end up getting it even though i already have 2 money pits but hey why no, its such a clean kouki.
While i make up my mind here's a photo of it with my POS

Another car to the collection


I've been keeping this on the low, but a couple weeks ago i've been hunting for a new car. Went to a few dealerships but nothing got my attention really. Until one day i was doing some work stuff at the shop and a advertisment popped up!

Yahoo Auctions Japan, but it was a MR Edition Evo IX, super clean, but not really what i was looking for so i searched around for a bit until i found this:




A super clean 2005 AP2 S2000 in the OEM Formula Red color, black leather interior, stock F22C engine with 144k km on the clock and never been in a acident and no rust on it whatsoever, an all around beauty of a car! Only downside for me is the soft top but i may look for a hardtop soon.

Mod list is pretty nifty but simple, it sits on Skunk2 Pro-C adjustable coilovers and 18" CST Hyper Zeros with Toyo tires


I ended up winning the auction for 9.5k V$ and went down to Nagoya to pick it up yesterday, i must confess i'm not really a honda guy, i've owned a D-Series EG civic before that i ended up getting rid of because i didn't like it but the S2K and the F22C i must admit that are slowly getting in my heart!



Finances: 31922 - 9500 (uhh...a...honda...s2000....) = 22422 V$
