Trip Update


So as Lagano said in his previous update, Me, Lagano, Phonexius and 3StyleLTU are going on a trip to a different country which we aren't going to say yet.
We are currently on the way over to the country and have two cars ready for us to buy.
We will be staying for quite a while, and we will be updating as we do stuff.
kbye

# Phonexius : its not funny if you are blindfolded and once u get on the plane they put ear plugs in and you fly and you don't know where xD I got kidnapped haha
^ What do you mean "not funny", surprises are cool! :P

By the way, as Skip mentioned that we have 2 cars to buy you're probably wondering how will we buy them if we barely had enough money for the plane tickets. :P Well, there's one thing that we haven't told you about: my R32 has been sold! I put it on sale a long time ago cause i didn't really know what to do with it and we were getting broke too. It's sad to see a Skyline go but at least it got us a fair amount of V$!

I bought a spare front and rear bumper from yngsensei and also colour matched them, i had to take them with me somehow! :P They barely fit in the car, and i had to put one front seat in the Golf. These bumpers will come in handy for the new owner cause you can't find these parts anywhere in the USA.

See you soon when we arrive! :)

The real trip update


Well, we left you wondering for a while, now it's time to reveal where we are. It was Skip's choice and we all agreed with it, not the best place for car guys but it's still interesting in a different way.


We're in Ireland, more precisely Galway which is Skip's hometown. I know that the cars are not so interesting as in Japan or USA, but the car scene is! There will be many meets and cruises soon so that's why we're here, you'll find out more about that in later updates. Before we arrived we already found 2 cars to buy as you already know, and here's one of them. It's a BMW 325i with an M bodykit and interior, in my opinion it's too similar to an M3. :P

However it has an M3 rear bumper so it looks strange with only one exhaust pipe. But it will be fixed soon because Skip's cousin fabricates exhausts, and we're at his place at the moment so it should be done in no time. :D

The second car that we had in mind was an Altezza which is quite popular in Ireland, but Skip's cousin has one anyway so he said we can borrow it when we'll need it.

That's it for now, our BMW will get some mods so it will turn some heads at the upcoming meets.

Last week we did some small changes to our E46, first we got this front lip. It's not much but we're keeping the costs low on this E46 cause we have it only for this trip.

Skip's cousin did a really good job with this exhaust, now it really looks like an M3. :awesome: A welded diff was a must-have too cause it's a common thing on RWD cars here, so he did that with no problems.

In the afternoon we went for a cruise outside of town on some nice country roads, Skip's cousin joined us with his Altezza. His exhaust makes it sound pretty loud, but loud is his lifestyle. :D Nonetheless it sounds great, same goes for our BMW!

There's not much traffic on these roads so we took that chance and had a small drift session. :D Me and Phonexius jumped out and went each on one side of the corner to check if there are any cars coming. 2 were drifting and the rest were watching for other cars and taking photos. We changed roles from time to time so each one of us had a go.

The E46 drifted like a dream with the welded diff, just like the Altezza! :D

There was an empty junction nearby so we did some donuts, or diffing like it's called in Ireland. :D

Around 2 hours later it started to rain so we slowly headed back. We could pull off even longer drifts in the rain but that would be too dangerous on the road. :P

I'm happy that there wasn't any police around :rolleyes:
This drift session was like a practice for this weekend's meeting, there will be a lot of drifting and diffing! :D

Long time no post.

We've been to some meets in the last month as we already told you. We planned to go back to the States around 4 weeks ago but something went wrong. Badly wrong.

I'll explain everything soon. :)

Hey guys.

We had a lot of fun last month, the first meet was on 11th June which is 3Style's birthday so we let him shred some tires with our E46 for the whole day. :D There were some more meets until the end of June, some of them were not really legit so we had to watch out for cops. I mean, they probably wouldn't like to see a bunch of cars diffing in the middle of the road. :P On 27th June we went to Dublin to visit a friend of mine (from Slovenia), he was there on a vacation for his birthday so i just had to see him. Since Dublin is all the way to the east of Ireland, we got a bit closer to the UK and i thought "why not visit Mikingo too?" We know him cause he was in our team for some time, and we all wanted to check out how he's doing. Well now was the chance to see him again after a while, so we took a ferry to Liverpool and drove to Sunderland. We knew we got to the right place when we saw a FC RX7 and an Astra VXR in the driveway. :D Both rides are cool but needless to say, the VXR looked nothing special next to that RX7! It looks really clean and unique, Mikingo definitely knows how to achieve that look. Unfortunately Phonexius wasn't with us that day cause he had to go to Japan for his R33's engine.

All in all we had a lot of fun for the whole June, but on the way back to Galway, everything went wrong. And i mean "everything".

How did this happen?
So 3Style and i were in the E46, we hit a pothole in the middle of a corner which made the rear end kick out a bit. The rear tires were pretty worn from all the diffing so it threw us in a drift all across the corner! I managed to keep control of the car but as i tried to straighten the car after the corner, the rear end slid to the right too much so the rear right wheel went in a ditch. Suddenly, we were upside down.

The only good thing is that it happened not far away from Galway so at least towing didn't cost too much.

Unfortunately we didn't fix much on the E46 because the crash left some consequences on me and 3Style too. I ended up with a broken wrist, and him with a twisted finger. So we had to go to the hospital to sort that out, Skip and his cousin were in the Altezza so we got there quickly. This is also the reason why we posted this so late.

Really sorry for the lack of photos of all the meets, when the crash happened my window was open, the camera was in the back seat and it somehow fell right through the window!! We really had the worst luck. We looked around for the camera but it flew very far away, i guess. :(

Now me and 3Style have pretty much recovered from the injuries so we'll start fixing up the E46 soon. This trip got way longer than we thought...

Again sorry for no photos but here's a video so you'll know how those meets looked like. *LINK*

BMW Repairs


Hey guys,
Since you probably know that we got into an accident with our BMW, we decided to fix and then sell it to one of my cousins friends who was looking for a cheap driftcar.
We sold it to him for V$2000 after fitting a rollcage, steelie, used front bumper and used headlight and tailights.
We needed a new windshield too, Lagano found that for sale somewhere.
Altogether they cost us V$550 from a scrapyard.




Yes, the car does look a bit more shitty but we just needed it gone.
We got alignment done at a nearby garage in the town too.

We're gonna be posting more often too

The start of a Transformation


Hey guys,

Today is the day I start to evolve my 180SX into it's V2 form. It's gonna be a long process but it should be worth it imo

I started to remove all the parts I wasn't gonna be using, they are for sale in the Used Parts classifieds







Once my bodykit that I ordered arrives I will be sending the 180 off for paint.
Update later on when something interesting happens

The bodykit for Skip's 180 is here! After we installed it we took the 180 to the paint shop, hopefully we'll paint it in the next few days if we won't be too busy with our other cars. We ordered a new set of rims for it too but you'll see it after the respray.


Dat fitment tho :P #fitmentgang


I'm sure you know this Zetto pretty well! I bought it from Phonexius just before our trip to Ireland. When i sold my R32 i wanted something different for a daily (and not RHD) but he gave me a really good offer so i bought it anyway. Well i have the Golf for a daily but it will go through some changes when we'll have time for it, so i just need something to drive around in for now. This 350Z will do the trick, and i love how it looks so i'm fine with it. :D


I've been driving the mk2 a lot, the TDI is great for everyday use but it's not so much fun, and gas is cheap here anyway. It's not that spacious either so i'm going to change its purpose soon. We have way too much work for now so it will have to wait, i guess.


We made some more space in the garage by moving the AE86 outside, Phonexius brought his R34 to be painted and assembled so parts will be all over the place. The 86 is on hold for now because of all the work we have, we still need some parts for it too.


Yesterday we went to ASM Auto Upholstery in Dallas to pick up the R34's interior as Phonexius already said. The other parts have arrived as well, today we started painting it next to Skip's 180SX.


I took the Z for a drive in the evening just to blow off some steam, it was a very busy day and there will be some more days like this!!
