Let's Get Busy


As I said lets get down to business, last time I mentioned I bought a new car well I scraped that plan completely, since I got back my 180SX after it was stolen by goons and it's basically bare bones now lacking all the bodyparts even my seats and wheels, why not just rebuild and make it into something different I mean under the shit circumstances I have a reason to.



I sold the car I bought originally to be a new template for a seat time drift car, the car in question was a unmolested JDM 1994 Nissan Silvia S14 Zenki, I thought it best to put that money towards the 180SX instead, I originally paid V$9,000.00 for it but with my salesman charm I was able to sell it to a new owner for V$9,450.00 a V$450.00 profit which isn't too bad.



First thing first, new body parts since well I lack them I ordered a Origin Streamline Body Kit and a 326 Power lip wing that is suppose to come in Monday also new pop ups and tail Lights, I was gonna go for the Type X lights but it's kinda overplayed imo so I bought the red and clear ones with the black center those should come in tomorrow, what I was able to get early were these:



17" SSR GTX02 Lightweight Wheels wrapped in my favorite tires Falken Ziex ZE914



I wanted to have the retaining all its OG JDM parts but things happen, I'm not gonna go to wild but it would be something tame yet eye catching, I'm gonna be taking off all my slaps and starting again with the collage.



I have been updated on the Corrado and I should be getting it back later in the week the guys sent me a pic of it and its spitting some smooth flames, its gonna be great getting it back.




Now I mentioned being up to some shit and by shit I mean a track day, last weekend I took the GTR to where it was meant to be a track and not just any track, Laguna Seca, some of the clients we worked with rented the track for the day and invited the firm for a track day, since I drive a car thats track ready I snapped at the opportunity for some track experience, I bought some new wheels and tires since I'm not scuffing up my Work Emotions that and I don't think they were meant for track driving in mind, I bought some Volk Racing TE37SLs and 2 sets of the usual Toyo R888 tires.



I must say it was a blast finally doing some proper driving the car handled amazingly, but this track scared me shitless especially at the infamous "Cork-Screw" and my first time on it was just insane, I know its steep in games but its like going down a a mountain after a few runs I took a break to let the car cool down to take pics of the cars around the paddock and just taking in the experience.









I didn't really care about my times and I guess some of the other guys didn't as well because shit got wild, and when it rained a bit these guys went even more nuts:






I myself got in on that action.





Burning my brakes in the process.



Although I work around exotic cars for a living it was mindblowing seeing them being driven on the ragged edge in person:





But the day was filled with the smell of burning tires, roaring engines, bleeding ears, and Grinch level smiling and I need to do this again really soon.

Now that this over I got important things to deal with.

# marcus915 : drifting supercars is ballsy af!

When you got expendable income you can just pay for balls.



I've been doing some thinking....



First off the 180SX has been finally clothed the parts came in Monday but only till Tuesday afternoon I was able to take time to put them on and after like 4 hours of work they are finally on, I may have to buy blinkers for the front fenders since I no longer have the Type X shit.









Now color is gonna be a hard thing for me to do I loved the original Yellowish Silver Metallic but it's time to get a new one any suggestions ?



Now my thoughts.....


I've been working on the LS, cleaning it and putting it back together I bought a new Hi Lift cam from Comp Cams and put in my order for the Fast LSX Intake, head covers and new valve springs.



shit alignment on my part

"Don't mind the S2000 it's my buddies"






But thats not on my mind, what is on my mind is the SC300 build, I bought a "shit car"
little hoonigan reference

but its super shit I mean I got this car for 2 grand, I originally bought a seat time car to get back into drifting and this would've been my balls to wall Drift Chariot but I want to have less cars since my 180SX got stolen I want less liabilities so 2 at home and 2 at the garage for storage, I have my Daily/Track Car ?: GTR, Weekend car: 180SX, Finished Project Car: Corrado and the Drift Car, I want to do it as a hobby, rebuilding an entire car just to drift as a hobby is not wise improving a car by myself for drifting seems more sensible, I am keeping the LS but I'm definitely gonna get rid of the SC300 and get something else thats cheap and I could work on a lot of emphasis on "me" since most of my cars have been built professionally like the RSX and the Corrado, I want to put a lot of input in car this time.

So yeah the SC300 shell will be on its way out and I'm gonna get something to take its place.

I hate that I have to make it look different but I gotta move on.

And no "shit" is a understatement, its complete feces and funny enough that was found inside the car just nasty.

# Jfernando1 : Wait; so are you finishing the SC300 or what?

The shell since I need to desperately get rid of it would go for like V$1,000.00 I did however fix little rust spots on the frame so the shell is "completely rust" proof.

Replacement


It's only been like a day and I've already got a replacement seat time car and its not what you expected.

1993 Mazda Miata (NA)






YEAR: 1993
MILEAGE: 184,675 miles
ENGINE: 1.8 NA8C
TRANSMISSION: Manual 5-Speed
DRIVE TRAIN: RWD
EXTERIOR COLOR: Black
INTERIOR COLOR: Black
CONDITION: Great, just age worn.



REFERENCE LINK

Now I was gonna buy a 240SX but I already have the Japanese 180SX it kinda was a bit redundant, so I bought the next best thing an NA Miata it's cheap parts are easily available a great car and look at it, its so cute and iconic who wouldn't like these things, I was going through Craigslist for one and came across this one, it was the cheapest manual in this condition for 2 grand, the rest were climbing upwards to 4 grand and some weren't even worth it, this one is a great base and I am going to have a lot of fun with this lil bug, I just realized that all my cars are from the late 80s early 90s with this being the youngest out of all of them the Corrado being the oldest the GTR doesn't count here, this just proves 90s cars are just awesome.

The plans with this:

    1. Get back to going sideways.

    2. Angle and Suspension Mods

    3. Turbocharge and blow up the motor.

    4. Have her sitting pretty.

    5. May put the LS into it down the road.

    6. Break, Drift, Fix Repeat.

    7. May take it to Japan at a huge expense for fun.




Shits about to get real like fo real.

Pretty good actually.



Miata Part: 1



I've put in some basic work on the Miata, you know the usual:


"NEW WHEELS & SLAMMED THE FUCK OUT"


As Skip put it monster truck stance:



To Hot Boi Shit:



So new things BC Racing coils, and some rep Watanabes with some real caps, don't think I'm fooling anybody with them, oh and some custom leds, I was watching Gingiums DIY vid and thought I should try it myself so I bought some 7" LED bars and wired them up, I mean I love the pop ups but I'm gonna need brighter lights and it just looks bitchin'.

The plate really sums up this car nicely:



Now although the car looks good now, it has run into some problems, main problem is over heating, so much so I was stuck on the highway waiting for it to cool.



So I have to check that out, since I'm gonna be swinging this thing sideways I need to weld the diff and buy a hardtop while on the point of running gear angle kit is gonna be top priority the turbo is also important but that would come later down the line I'm gonna destroy this engine :)) .


I'm gonna get myself hurt in this thing, its gonna be awesome.

The SC300 shell is for sale if anybody is interested.

Spent about an 1 hour in total typing out this shit and my account got logged out and I lost all that I written so lets get to the point I'm pissed and I'm moving on.

I bought a new car:

1992 Nissan 240SX Coupe <- Reference Link





The Miata got some new shit to it:





I'm suppose to be getting back the 180SX back from paint and I chose the perfect color I think you guys would love also.

So 2 shit cars:



Should be fun :)



For you guys asking about the SC shell its V$1,000 and since both of you are interested highest bidder gets it and I'll cover the shipping cost for you.

Time Skip



I'm back after a mild hiatus, so lets just skip to the present shall we ?

The 180SX has gone through an entire change in purpose, after the car got stolen and the parts got pawned off, the idea of the car was broken I wanted to make it a cool weekend driver then after buying the Origin Streamline kit and some cool SSR wheels, I was like, fuck it imma go "Hotboi" so I sold the Origin kit and wheels and I got the car taken apart fully repainted Purple on Dark Chocolate (its dark brown but that's the name I'm calling it) and an unpainted BN Sports kit thrown on it, I changed wheels but I stuck to SSR's so I went with the Agle Series: Minervas, new seats and a half cage.

Instead of pictures here's a dizzying beauty edit.



What's next ?

Oh right......I sold the Miata, I got rid of it since I've chosen to LS swap the 240 Coupe instead and I've been spending a lot of time on it, I took the entire car apart and this is what it looks like now.
( Like every project 240 )



I'm going to the Silvia Front End I already got the Fenders and Front Bumper, for lights Im gonna get projectors no bricks, don't know if I want to drift it or just show it off and make it like my Crazy FRS I'll think of something, but it's coming along swell.


The Corrado got new drag radials and is hitting the drag strip soon, I mean it did and broke down, burnt out the clutch and broke the driveline I did get this sweet flame spitting shot though.



When it gets fixed it'll do the run, just I won't be driving it, I got a figure estimate that the car would break 10 seconds, my car has met the regulations ( just a cage ) but I don't think I'm skilled enough yet, I have a more experienced buddy doing the run for me so yeah the Corrado's gonna be running 10s.

And last but not least the GTR has to get some love, I had her painted in a classic color: Silica Breath a color that was exclusive to the M-Spec and M-Spec Nur and recently the 45TH Anniversary GTR, I wanted a new color but I didn't want a lame color so I chose this one that has a bit of a historical nod to it, as usual I love changing wheels so I sold the 37s and Works and bought 19" to the rims I bought for the 180SX, SSR GTX02's.

No pictures again just vids:





Guess that's up to speed on what I've been up to from the past month I got a few more projects take on and I plan on going to Japan later this year.

And oh since I got no feedback on the SC300 I just got the shell sold.

Expenses:

A considerable amount.

I'll just put the remainder of my funds my last fund check was at V$45,390.67.

Wallet:

V$30,050.00

Uneasy laughter.......



So um who wants to buy my Corrado ? Heh...heh...... God I'm gonna be homeless.


So I just bought another car, yay.

And that car is, well this:

Reference Link









ACCURATE AS FUCKKKKKK

Yup I bought me a JDM Supra, yes its all legal I don't exactly have it yet since I finalized the order last week Monday and its coming in tomorrow and I'm so damn excited for all while my wallet is crying for mercy, oh and since its a SZ (None Turbo for you plebs) it isn't really worth anything I mean 14 grand isn't cheap but it's ways cheaper than USDM Supras here.


So I'm joining the Supra gang, I felt a bit left out I just had (at a great expense) to buy one, so when it gets here I'm probably gonna sleep in it at the shop I mean after I clean it but you know, its gonna be baller, since I'm on the topic of new whips I want to trade the GTR for an M4.

Hah just fucking with you, seriously I'm joking.

But on to another car, the S13 240SX Coupe.

I got her caged and repainted.








Just some lil notes, the Fenders are Nismo Aero Replicas, the Canadian S13 rear bumper lip, the USDM rear spoiler, and riveted D-Max overfenders she's got some johnnies.


The color is another Nissan Classic, Millennium Jade yes the same color that came on the (R34) GTR, yes I putting respect on the Nissan brands name.

The engine has been put back together but all I lack is a transmission and a ecu probably some wiring y'know what, I'm missing some shit but its nothing really, she's almost finished.


Shit's going pretty good well for now heh....(uneasy chuckle)

Oh God the Corrado's driveshaft

Was gonna go for Bay Side Blue but this looks so much better.


# Soju : Welcome to the Supra Gang, and nice color choice for the S13 <3

Ikr its so damn fine.


# radcoon : Great how the S13 turns out. The colour is awesome.
But that Supra, man. Nice, nice, nice. What's your plan for it?

Since I live in America what you think 1000HP STOCK INTERNALS BROOOO!!!!!, hah just kidding actually I want to cop a Ridox kit and go for that functional yet sick look, I want push powerwise probably around 600hp I want to be able to drive it without killing myself.







SHE'S HEREEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Oh my lord I am excited af shes finally here boys and god she looks terrible damn the car is just dirty, but it's a Supra so no harm no foul, I'll clean it when it gets dropped off at the shop it will have no grime or even a trace dirt.





Now a little history well not a little, the car has over 104,000km on the clock which a lot but is way less than the 240SX which is amazing given this cars age, the previous owner put a Top Secret bumper on it a vented hood with hoodpins, interior wise Recaro seats and what seems to be a knock off momo wheel ?, the car has minor mods on it I just don't know what they are idek, what the rims are but I mean come on I usually don't overrate the Supra but now that own one its a awesome experience, but I gotta say one thing I drove the car around the dock and as I expected this car is a slow handling boat, granted its a SZ but damn its sketchy, sigh all of this is bout to change.



Now what I'm gonna do I want to make the car a show stopper, but not a show car, I am not going over 1000HP, I am putting the SCs V160 trans to replace that shitty W55, it can hold 1000HP but I am capping the power at 600HP nothing more nothing less, I want to be able to drive the car without having death whisper in my ear and I want to be able take corners hard, not just do straight line action.


Now I could go on and on, on what I want to do with it but I'll save my ramblings for another time, but damn I have A80 Supra.

That Silvia is looking really great. I'm actually in the process of building a shopping list of sorts for my own S13, so having inspiration like this is great.
