Japan again???


Yes, i'm in Japan once again for STC88 Drift Con. It wasn't long before i got back to USA but when i found out about this event, i just had to give it a shot! Round 1 was held at Ebisu so i was pretty familiar with the track. It was all worth it though, because i got 2nd place! It was really fun, there were so many nice cars pulling off some amazing drifts.



I also met Soju and 11000rpm, we've seen each other at Nikko last year too. But this time Soju finally got to see his previous S14 again. He was really happy to see it, just like i was happy to see his 180! It's so clean and simple, and both cars look so good next to each other. His runs were quite impressive too, especially for a stock S13! When i had seen it at the track i remembered Skip's 180 when it had a SR20DE just like Soju's.


A few days later Skip showed up in this thing. He was a little better than me at the drift event so he got what he deserved. I'm sure he has some ideas about it so it probably won't stay stock for long.


However he still has to make his mind up so we did some work on my S14. After some runs at Ebisu i noticed that the brakes were getting weaker. I could've fixed them but i was thinking about upgrading anyway so i bought a complete brake kit from a Z32 300ZX, i also got a set of wheels and a rear wing. It was plenty of work because we replaced the brake lines and master cylinder as well. I gave the wing to Skip because i thought it would look good on his S13. At the moment he's not sure about it but i guess that wing will be more useful for him.



S14 will get some more upgrades soon to stay competitive for STC88 Drift Con round 2!

Round 2 here we go!


This round of STC88 Drift Con was at Ebisu as well, but this time we drifted on the Minami track which is the most familiar for me. Despite knowing the track i hit the wall with the bumper a few times, but that's because i tried a bit harder than usual. There's only cosmetic damage though so i kept on drifting with everyone till the end of the day.


That's all for today, i can't wait for the rest of the entries and round 3 next week!

Trip to Osaka


Well, like i told you - last friday i went to Osaka to visit Mackay. When i got to his garage i was amazed by all the cars there, even if i've seen many cars like those in the past. I had a great time meeting him and checking out his garage but his R32 GTR was why i got there. I wanted one for a long time, well i had a R32 GTS-t for some time but that just wasn't the real deal. After winning at round 2 of STC88 Drift Con i got some money to spend, and i was supposed to get a prize car too but the dealership had some problems so i decided to get a car myself. It set me back for way too much but when i saw this GTR was for sale i just couldn't resist!!


His Fairlady Z found a new owner too but it was still in Mackay's garage when i was there so i asked him if i could give it a try. This car is so much fun, i mean, definitely not as fast as the R32 but it's fun in a different way. It's so lightweight that it doesn't need much more than a NA RB25, but ITB's make some more power and a lovely sound!


Such an awesome car, one of my favorite classics. Maybe i'll get something like this some day...


I drove back to Yashio with this thing though. Mackay was next to me on the highway for some time before we split up. When he took the exit, i noticed that the road was almost empty so i tried what this monster can do, he probably heard that lol. It's capable of speeds much higher than the stock speedometer so that will have to be taken care of. Long story short, this must have been my best 500km trip ever.


So now i have 2 RB26 powered beasts. Thanks Mackay!

Ahh.. It's awesome to see that you two got along together well, GTR is definitely in good hands. Oh yeah, that speedometer lol, after 180km/h it starts showing nonsense, but I kid you not, from 0-180 all it takes is around 8 seconds if I am sure, only launched it like this few times, I even have footage of it, all footage will be put in our Shops promo video sometime later in the future. But anyways take care man and enjoy your new car! :thumbsup:

This week i was doing pretty much nothing, just enjoying my GTR. I did some pulls on the highway and went way over 180 km/h a few times so i figured i could change the speedometer. After a few days of searching i found this Nismo gauge cluster in UpGarage. Parts like this are quite hard to find nowadays but i guess i had some luck this time. I also took off the Defi RPM gauge because the Nismo one goes all the way up to 11 too. For now i'm not sure if it shows the speed and RPM accurately but i'll check it sometime.


A few days ago Mackay showed up to see the GTR, and guess what - he had another GTR. I guess he just couldn't do without one! A friend of his was with him too, with another GTR! I have to say, terrorizing the streets of Tokyo was really fun. Mackay will tell you more about this soon in his RP.

That was one hell of a ride man, can't wait to get together again too, maybe with even more GTR's in our group, fellow guy from forums got one too, so I am sure he would be down to ride.

Yeah.. I guess I should really post an update and reveal the GTR because a lot of people are talking about it haha, sadly I do not have enough time right now, but I will try to do it as soon as possible.

@Skip Well Mackay said that we will meet again sometime so don't worry. And we'll go for a drive with the R32 when you come back :)

@Mackay Hell yeah man, bring as many GTR's as possible with you next time!

Digging the aggressive widebody on that BNR32. Congrats on the win btw! Happy that you got the RB26 and the tires in the S14 to scream themselves to victory hahaha! (But of course the driver's got the skills to pay the bills too lol)
