Yeah it did. For some reason, NISMO likes to charge a crapload of money for stuff.

That'd be nice of you. I think actually we could all work on it. I'm thinking of doing a Candy-like Red for the Supra, similar to the paint on my R34. It'd be like a Apple couple.

Well y'all can still help with the body mods. Doing it solo is gonna suck or be a struggle. I'd need extra help anyway so I can get that out the way.

So me, FastCars and Porsche911man raced last night and for the first major part Porsche911man was in front but he topped out pretty quickly so me and FastCars rolled past and i kept pulling away as we neared the finish and FastCars was getting pretty close but he was pretty close to topping out and i claimed the win!. I do think FastCars was gonna pull me early on as he has less power to wheelspin but i was wrong

Yeah that was a good race. Im gonna have to adjust my gear ratios, i think one was too short anyway. As for the AE86, looks pretty clean on the most part.

Thanks man, you did really well but your gear ratio is quite short for a car with that kind of power.

Added 1 hour 18 minutes later:

So ive ordered a H&R Ultra-Low suspension kit for the Hachi as the stock ones are shot and the ride is not very good so im gonna lower it and put some jap style wheels on.

Finances:
H&R Ultra Low - $700
3442.5

So ive spent all day putting in the new coilovers and setting the height so its perfect for 16'' wheels.
I also managed to find someone wanting original GT APEX Kouki Wheel which i had, so i went to meet the guy and he had some ENKEI Turbomesh's sitting in the garage so i asked "would you trade the turbomesh's for the apex's" and he said yea so we swapped and i was on my way to get them installed.

1 Hour Later:

They were pretty easy to install as they had same stud pattern luckily.

(P.S sorry for lower quality pictures, have to use BB93'S SLRR which i havent set up for quality yet, needs a ENB which i havent installed yet..)

My plans for the Hachi stay pretty simple, get it clean and tidy, make all the main aspects of the car good and sell it on..

So after speaking with cate, hes designing me a wrap for the 86 as it would look so much better and hide some of the bad paint blemishes that i cant get out and tbh it looks sick. The design below is what im going for...

So last night i overnighted a TODA N1 exhaust and i accidently ordered a Vertex Kit instead of a RunFree so anyone want red vertex bumpers and sideskirts for a levin.
Its looking great after i removed the panda covers as ive got a wrap coming soon (TBA).
I also have cable ties holding the bumpers to the fenders for looks as its held on tight with mounting bolts etc. but wanted a clean drift car look.

I am looking for a RunFree kit if anybody has one hmu.


(P.S ENB has made some changes along side some 3d changes to my graphics card, this is only for the 86 as it wont work on 2.2.1 MWM with LE2 patch...)

So after a long time of not updating you guys i decided to give one... (Partly because of PC broken)

I traded the LMGT4'S for some LMGT1's which make the car look a lot better as they are in white and blue in this case goes really well.
I took the exhaust off as it needed some welding done as it had a leak which is still being welded now as im going over every seam and join.
The bumper was taken off as i wanted to see if it would drift and it did surprisingly so got to put that back on.
Also got a carbon wing to replace the other stock one. Cost 800 from a local guy.

Finances:
3182.50 - 800 = 2382.5

So BIG UPDATE:

Im selling the E30 locally for 3700 and someone is already interested in buying as their here now viewing it..
While hes doing that, ive been looking at a 94' Civic Si (EG6) With a D16 engine (Fully Stock) and some other things but the owner is wanting 2000 so i need the e30 gone so i have some cash and spare room... Also the daily broke so i scrapped it because the engine was having problems with starting and wouldnt charge. It eventually blew up on the highway as i was trying to smoke someone which didnt happen... Should bring my R33 next time and smoke him.. Never mind, The E30 is going for a Honda... Stupid idea, Yes, but i want to try hondas so here we go..

I didnt have the factory ones... I kinda misplaced them

Added 10 minutes later:

Wheels arent worth a lot anyway like 500 for em but i kept coils and wheels from corolla so theyre worth something and im gonna go buy that civic now since the guy bought the E30...

Finances:
2382.5 + 3900 (i asked for a bit more becuase of spec) = 6282.5

Added 1 hour 5 minutes later:

So its here..

The car is 1994 Honda Civic Si (EG6) In Red and is pretty much stock throughout apart from some SSR Kei Dori rims which i forgot about the caps so i had to go back for them...

Engine is 1.6 D16 SOHC engine with a Air filter which im sure adds about 50hp :))
Wheels are pretty much fitted as much as the previous owner could get them to... Im not sure of aftermarket coilovers at this point, havent had time to give it a good lookover.
Has new tyres and wheels are pretty new.

Car has 115,000 miles on chassis and engine. Also has a towhook (Doge's Decor Pack)

Im wanting this to be a sleeper/stance build, Im looking at turbo the D16 or swap in a k20.

Hope you lot appreciate this as much as i do anyway

(I'm just gonna say that irl dori dori's are extremely rare - it's probably unlikely to see them on a civic)

It looks clean, what's the first thing your gonna do?

(Somethings cant be perfect and its japan so anything can happen becuase mr.miyagi)
Probably change seats as they have some un-describable bodily fluid in them and i dont like the smell, and then engine swap?

(But it's role-playing. It's supposed to be realistic)

Sounds good! I always wondered how people go so many bodily fluids into 1 seat...

So ive spent all day looking for reasons to get a K20 and i think im getting one. Ive found out that i can get a K20A2 and then put a 2.6 brian crower stroker for pretty cheap so im doing that... Sadly no turbo for a while.

K20 will roughly cost 1200 as they are in everything pratically and the stroker kit is 900 so 2100 for both and then possibly new cams for a higher rev range and more aggressive pull from low range.

So all the parts came this morning and i fitted them while at work. They was pretty easy to put in as i already had the K20 at the shop (were i bought mine).
Its now stroked to 2.6l and has a modified fuel rail to compensate for the extra capacity while the engine already had a aftermarket intake with k&n filter.

It hasnt been dynoed but Brian Crower say if the engine is in good condition it will make about 290-330 so im gonna have to book a dyno and tune it.

It also has quite a bit of room so i can definitely fit a turbo in there.

So after work i went down to the plate office (God knows what its called in Japan) and managed to get the civic some plates finally. Would have got the 86 and GTS some but didnt have time...


Added 1 hour 13 minutes later:

So after being on the phone for a hour or so... Ive just been to collect my new swap. What i mean by swap is i traded my AE86 for a S14 Zenki...

The previous owner has slammed it, put wide arches on front and the rear, bought some Advan RG11's as drift wheels and found R34 seats with a real nardi wheel.

The engine is a SR20DET Black Top with the stock Garrett T28, has a koyorad and an intercooler with HKS filter.

Interior is pretty clean, hasnt been gutted.

Exhaust is stock but has been decatted which means it wont pass emissions now.

Overall its a clean car and is a good base drift car for me to slide.
