# Soju : Mmmm that livery looks so great!
:iagree: !!!!! That's as D1GP-ish as it can get man. Great wheel and bodykit choice too! Now, if you built such a sick drift car you better drive it that way as well ;)

# ramalhinho07 :

Am I still alive? Going D1SL?


Long time no see huh?

Yeah, i've been out of the country for a while visiting my family and friends back in Portugal, but now i'm back to Japan and more inspired than i've ever been!

So where did we left off last time?


Now that we're all caught up, here goes...
My 180sx has been put back together by me and a few friends, all the aero bits are now on, including the comeback of my old d-max type 3 spoiler, that i decided to go with instead of a bigger wing.

But the best part is... The new motherfucking livery!!!

This time around i decided to go all out D1GP style, and with the help of PS TAKA the dream came true, this is the best stage of this car ever to my opinion now being more track oriented, a bit of the "meihan spec" style. I wanna focus more on working on my drifting skill and go balls out with the car so it's gonna be dialed in suspension wise in order to break less shit, even though the low drift style is gonna live forever in my heart i wanna be able to enjoy this car at it's best:

Here's a couple shots of the progress:


(This livery was the toughest shit to apply, never had to deal with so much detail, ever!)



And the final result:


I'm still waiting on some interior parts to finish it up and still need an alignment but this is the rough look it's gonna have for this season, i have to thank a lot to Vstanced garage for keeping my shit there for such a long time, they really pulled up for me when i needed the most, it's almost ready to hit the track and the hype is r.e.a.l ! ! !

As for my other cars everything has pretty much stayed the same... Well i borrowed some wheels to run on my S2000... Temporarily? Definitive? Who knows... They're just there because i slammed the shit out of one of my CST's into a curbed and it's being rebuilt... So i kindly "stole" these wheels from my friend Marcus (hope he doesn't mind :)) )

Here's a shot i took of it:



I'm kinda down to keep them if he doesn't have plans for them, and the Cerbs I with the Cerbs II mix is hella nice tbh

But for now that's all, i'll have more news on my cars soon... I still have that spec-r s15 don't you worry i got plans for that as well haha

Finances: 40995 + (960V$ x 17 weeks w/o updating) = 57315 V$

@Lagano, Renaruto, Nightrunner, Marcus915, Soju and Smurf - thanks to everyone for the kind comments :-X :-X
I'm glad everyone likes the new stage of the S13, and it's gonna shred for sure, i'm taking it to Meihan and Ebisu soon!!


S15 getting love


As for the "forgotten" car of my "collection", i have a few goodies for it as:

- The typical go-to setup of most my cars... 3 2 6 p o w e r c h a k u r i k i coilovers, adjustable damper, height, etc... Bought from the man himself, Mitsuru Haruguchi, to make my s15 L O W, since it's now going to be my street car since the 180 is gonna be tracked mostly now, even though it still has shaken (so it might still see the streets every now and then :P )

- A set of wheels! For this particular car i decided to stick on the OEM side and got a set of NISMO LMGT4 - designed by RAYS, in 18×9.0 +22mm spec in white
for the price of 307322¥ (or 2.7k V$ for those who don't wanna do the math), already wrapped on ADVAN AD08R in a 215/40/R18, in mildly good shape, can still hold a few more KM's.

I got an invitation from a long time friend to come by his new place, he lived with me for a while back when i purchased my 180sx (that meihan spec 180 that used to be a SR20DE pignose with crusty paint) and i asked him if it was alright to do my shit at his garage and he agreed on it so here's a pic mid wheel change:



We drank a few beers in his backyard after while catching up about life and fams, and i parked the S15 outside after it was all done and here's the end result:

I'm really proud on this setup, changed the whole car and has a huge street vibe now!

I gotta head back to cooldown HQ before Marcus threats to eat my dongo again (YES MARCUS I GOT MY EYE ON YOU :^) ) and help him out with his stuff and maybe do some street shit with our s15's although i don't see my stock SR keeping up with his not-so-stock SR-VET


Finances: 57315 - 2.700 (NISMO LMGT4 w/ ADVAN AD08R - 2000 (326 POWER coils) = 52615 V$

your dog is safe for now : )
Also those LM's look fantastic on your car. Let's go do some street stuff even though my car is probably going to be a rocket ship and try not to crash HAHA

C o m e b a c k



Soooooooooooooooooooo
Y'all haven't heard from me for a big while (291 days h o l y f u c k)
I haven't been doing much car stuff lately since i've been travelling a lot, meeting friends and working mostly when i'm not outside of the country.

So whats up with my cars?

Well...

The S2K and the S15 are still the same as they were before, haven't done anything new to them and I might getting another car for a new project (To those who don't remember i'll include pics of the S2K and the S15 below)



Imma be honest i don't know what to do to the S15... This is pretty much how i like it tbh, i've been daily driving this and since its a stock SR its the most reliable car i got right now.



As for the 2000, even though i really like this car but i think its time to let go of it... So to whoever is interested i'll sell for the right price or trade for a stock R33 GTS-T...

About the S2K:
-(wheels not included car will go with a set of CST Hyper Zero in 18")
-stock F22C with 151k km on the clock (bought with 144k about 1 year ago or so)
-326 power Chakuriki coilover kit with 26 step damping and 100/80kg spring rates (Will include a Skunk 2 Pro-C coilover set that came with the car.)
-AP2 Mugen lip.
-OEM forumla red color with no scratches, recently polished
-Black leather interior in mint condition

-Skunk2 Test pipe

And now my pride, joy and also pain in the ass:

The 180SX
Well this one has seen a couple of changes since last time, i replaced my D-Max spoiler with a Origin Labo. GT Wing Type-A that set me back 860 V$. Other than that i haven't driven it much until last weekend that i went to a Matsuri at Sazan Circuit in Hasegoya and had a blast with it!


Well that was until i started having some temperature issues with my SR and had to call it a day, but i plan to drive the shit out of the S13 from now on

I'll try to update this with more frequency. Or not.


Finances= 52615 + (960V$ x 42 weeks w/o updating) - 860 (Origin Labo. GT Wing) = 92075 V$ (L O A D E D)

Heeeey welcome back :cheers:
I truly love all your cars, all are tasty! :D

I'd say the S15 is already perfect in that state, just keep it that way! Or you might want to do some more engine mods to it....it's an S-Chassis after all, modding posibility is endless :)) Say, I know you've got the 180 as a track boi but do you track the S15 as well at times?

Sad the S2K had to go, it's truly a handsome boi. Ah but since you're swimming in a pool of money right now, instead of looking for a GTS-t why not looking for, say, BCNR33 or even BNR34? Unless that's what you actually want, then I'm not going to stop you :D

By the way Marcus has moved to Tokyo, but probably still hangs in Osaka once or twice in a time.

Ayyy man esketit hey hey, ah i like your taste, very nice :*
For the s15 i would say keep it as it is, it's a very nice clean and mint condition 15 with reliable engine there's no need to push it as you have 180 for crazy $hit.
Sad to see the 2000 go but i hope it'll get a good caring owner.
And finally the 180 is just :* perfection i like that big wang you're rocking.

Oh my god now where have you been all this time? Good to see you back man. It's kinda weird to see that the S15 and S2000 haven't changed at all but then again, they look just fine as they are. 180 is not that much different either but damn i forgot how gangsta that thing looks!! That wing was one last touch it needed, drift car at its finest. :thumbsup:

@BigSmoke thanks my G, it's good to be back after all this time, yeah i talked to Marcus a while back and he told me, he said me might come thru soon if not i'll go visit him and the rest of the guys. As for the R33, even though a GTR sounds tempting i want a RWD Skyline because i'm thinking about making it a street dancer and would be a waste to do that to a GTR, but maybe some day who knows

@Leopard13631, @Lagano and @Soju thank you guys for the kind words so much it's nice to be back.
Also @Lagano yeah the wing was very necessary to make the final touch to the D1GP style!



Small upgrades


Following on @BigSmoke's advice i've decided to give some minor upgrades to the S15 such as a new IC setup, since i had a OEM smol boi intercooler, so i hit up some friends at RHD japan and bought myself a Trust Greddy Spec-LS FMIC Kit for ¥37,921 (354V$) and went to a fabrication shop to get some piping made for it, which turned out pretty fine and i paid around 250V$ for that.

Also took a trip to Koyorad sale branch here in Osaka and got myself a new radiator since mine was pretty beat up and one of the mounts was broken. That set me back 350V$.



In other news, i'm expecting a potential buyer today for the S2000, hopefully today is the day!

Finances: 92075 - 354 (Greddy IC) - 250 (welding IC pipes) - 350 (Koyo radiator) = 91121V$
