Hello guys, some news from our garage.

First I sold my nissan 180sx (10k) and after a while i to buy the BMW E34 535I. The beauty of the body, preserved as an original, will be a great daily car.

As you all know there was a huge meeting at Nikko circuit, Skip and i went there to check out the guys from the forum. The cars were really nice, we saw some great drifting too!
There was 11000rpm with his JZX100 drift car, Soju with his beautiful Supra, Bad.Compqny with his S13 missile, Mackay with a E46, Holeecrab with his sick VR38 swapped GT86 and more! Skip decided not to drift his 180 because it was a little beaten up from a Mobara drift session with Renaruto. One of the tires blew and we hit a wall, pretty scary moment but it was nothing major, we just changed the wheel and drove off to Nikko.

When we got back home, we started to work on my S14.
It has arrived a few days ago, and so did the RB26. Before swapping it in i needed some more parts to make everything work so me and Skip paid a visit to UpGarage again, he bought some stuff for his 180 too. We bought a Nismo LSD for the S14, and a custom driveshaft made for RB swapped S chassis. It works with a RB25 RWD transmission and my RB26 has it, so we chose the right part.


The engine mounts needed some adjustments to fit with the RB26 because of its oil pan, but after that it fit like a glove!


Fortunately there was enough space for the piping, intercooler and everything.


The engine was in place, then we installed the transmission, driveshaft and differential.


While shopping in UpGarage i also found this GP Sports exhaust system, i almost forgot my S14 didn't have one yet. :P First i took off the Top Secret diffuser cause the exhaust tip wouldn't fit there otherwise. The pipes didn't really fit with the headers and downpipe but Skip managed to fix that. Thanks mate!


Long story short, my S14 now runs and drives! I did a quick test down the street as you can see. :P Well the main part is done but there's a whole lot of wiring problems. Most of the electronics don't work at all, hopefully that will get sorted out asap.


Now Skip's 180 needs some repairs, it's about to get painted too so i'll have some work for the next few days, hope i'll have some time for the S14 though.
Stay tuned for more updates from Japan and the States! :)

I love that sleeper style of your S14. Also a really nice colour. As mentioned... I'm interested in those stock bumpers. ;)

I finally managed to sort out the electronics on my Silvia, now everything is connected properly. Basically everything on the car worked and being pretty much stock it was ready for the shaken to get inspected and registered. Before that i fitted R34 GTR seats that i brought with the car. I also brought a set of VStanced plate covers, stickers and some goodies from our shop, i'll use all this on my Silvia later on. I can't wait for some mods but i'll have to because Skip got some new parts for his 180, check out his RP too.


And another update from 3Style back in the States: he got his car registered as well and did some changes to it. First he took off the 535i badge on the trunk, it looks much cleaner now. He also found a set of BMW Style 20 Turbine rims with tires, i think they are from a M5.


It's a bit lower now cause he cut the springs. This is just a temporary fix, he's planning to get some coilovers so it'll do for now.

^ Yeah they're really good both for daily driving and racing!

Ebisu once again

Nothing changed on my S14 but Skip and i had a track day last weekend so i thought i should mention it. It was my 2nd time at Ebisu, but i didn't have a 1000+HP Porsche this time. :P (check it out here) As always there were all kinds of nice cars with very skilled drifters driving them. From missiles to pro drift cars, but hey, as long as it can drift it's good to go. Skip just changed his rear wheels then we did a few laps on the track. He was a bit low on power, especially for 18" wheels but he managed to do some skids anyway.
Here's a pic just before going on the track:


However i was the complete opposite, i had tons of wheelspin so i had to be gentle with the throttle. Another reason for going slower was stock suspension, the body roll was crazy lol. I need some coilovers asap.


I wanted to modify my S14 for a while but didn't really know where to start. I got a set of Work VS-KF from Skip so that'll be the first thing to change, together with coilovers and a 5 lug conversion. I guess i'll have to go shopping to UpGarage again which means i'll probably buy some more stuff that i don't even need. :D

I was clutch kicking for days lol. The SR20DE is so gutless, i have to keep changing from 1st to 2nd through corners. Its really annoying.

Enjoy those VS-KF's, get yoself some rollovers and we'll fit them. Gonna have to fit something new to mine too... ;)

It was nice to see you guys at Ebisu today. I'd like to say it was more than just some skids for you guys. :)
