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.
