I floored it and its not what you think.



Now it's been a month since I've been working on the Golf and the biggest phase has been taken on, we hit the road and floored it.



Oh, you thought it ran ? Oh no bro's I mean I literally floored it, clever eh ?

The Golf has been bagged boys, and its not really complete as of yet I'm still calibrating the air suspension and wheel fitment, but how it sits is fucking mad, the car looks fit, most of the work done on the car has been mostly electrical, I relocated the battery and removed some of the old wiring to prepare to replace them.



I'm content with the reservoir and compressor placement.

And without further adieu the rims and the motor has arrived:



Re-barrelled BBS RS's these just bring back memories of my FRS honestly, now these have been put together with a couple of friends so I'm not to confident on the build quality, the mesh and barrelled lip are legit (peep FelgenFuchs.de) but I may drop them off to be rebuilt just to be sure.

Oh and the VR6 has arrived and shit, I'm gonna need a lot more on it actually since it's just a long block, right....this is gonna be fun.

Damn man, it will be one hell of a neck breaker when that Golf will hit the streets. Never knew felgenfuchs.de was so known worldwide, or as I should say.. Right people find their way to GOOD STUFF. :thumbsup:

New plan, make her THICC


I've made some improvements to the Golf over the weekend some new lights and er, a widebody kit.

Now I was scrolling through posts from Sema and saw that widebody Golfs are the new thing,

so why not follow the hype ?


So I bought myself a knock off FRP Pandem Styled widebody off ebay over the weekend, and boy I think I like where this is going:



If you can see the engine, its just being fitted for placement

The car looks wide as all hell, its about idk say 80mm wide and whats funny is that its still smaller in width than my C63 Merc, I was gonna go with the trim, but this is just better, I get more width, I could cut more off the body for even more low, and proper fitment, this is just going swell, the plan for the car however continues unchanged.



On to the extra bits, I did a bit of DIY on the lights, unlike the Corrado where you could buy projector headlights, with this you have to do it yourself, so I spent a few days, cutting and fitting these, now I'm not an electrician so I wasn't able to wire them properly because my friend who's helping me with my wiring wasn't available, so instead of waiting for him I did the install myself all he has to do is wire them up and we're good to go, what was just plug and play was the yellow tinted fogs and indicators.



The rear lights, just your typical clear and red I got from VW Heritage, I would have bought the LED ones but those were sadly out of stock, but these look mint regardless, I'm pretty happy with how this build is going honestly can't wait for it to be finished, so I'm taking my time and not rushing it, and if you're asking where are the doors....don't worry my friends you'll see.

Now on to the C63, I might as well trade in for a new one, now what happened was the car blew an engine management sensor presumably on the day it broke down since I didn't get a problem up to that point, basically the car was so confused about not knowing about itself it imploded, (that's a bit exaggerated) whats funny is I never once even got a engine failure light, I have chipped camshafts (need replacements), a new sensor and a remap, simple enough, but after getting the bill, I might as well sell them the car at this point, and ironically I am thinking about it, I took a test drive of a 2016 E63 S 4Matic recently and I am in love with this thing while internally crying on the service bill on this thing.





I may get it and put myself in a huge debt :crying:


I know I did tease the S15 update but I had something changed on it so I'll save that for another time.

I can see the Golf would end being a beasty, handsome boi. Keep it up mate ;)

As of the Merc.......I guess it's a common modern Euro car problem (costly maintenance)

Soju teachings


I'm slowly fighting the urge to go full out hot boi with the S15 for the past few months, I've never owned an S-Chassis that retained its stock form for long or any car for that matter, well that changed, the S15 is still untouched mechanically and er.. visually ?, since it came from Japan.

I'm not sure on visually since I had the Nismo front put back on along with the aftermarket bumper that came with the car, but as you can see the car is freshly kitted and most importantly resprayed:



the color is well its an OEM color but its something exotic, say Lamborghini ? the colour specifically is called Grigio Nimbus it's a glossy yet matte looking color, I went with it instead of the usual Nissan colour just for having something different, speaking of different the VS-XXs are in storage following the teachings of master Soju I got GTR rims, most specifically R33 GTR rims and my god it looks stunning honestly, I'm considering painting them black to offset the grey, but idk, the car looks, fucking stellar.



Kinda regretting spending money on the original Front and Rear since I should've just done this in the first place, but you live you spend money you learn, I'm honestly gonna have to buy another car to fuck with because I don't even want to touch this now.

Ikr and now its probably gonna stay this way.

Thanks man.


Weekend Mishap



So I made a pact that I am not gonna touch the S15 for anything more than basic maintenance so its basically gonna be my JDM daily driver, but today, well I just bought me another car, (yup I'm honestly a lost cause at this point).



Yeah I just bought me an 1989 Mazda RX7 (FC) GL (basically N/A 13b)



Now as a typical car guy you buy cars and parts even though you don't need em, now I'm not saying I don't need it, I WANT IT, was on my way back home from lunch and spotted this beaut in this guy's driveway.

Now the little tale on this car, apparently was originally from Canada, RHD swapped and when it came here was registered in New York and now resides with the second owner in Santa Cruz, long story short he wanted to get rid of it and guess who came to take it off his hands, now the state of the car is a bit sketchy I mean, it runs but just slightly and looks great visually but mechanically I'm quite unsure about it whats worst I know jack shit about rotaries, but for V$3,500.00 its fucking worth it honestly.

( probably the most valid story for a car to be in a RP )




Now I'm both sad and excited since I spent money that was suppose to go into the Golf build, but since I am selling the C63 it shouldn't be a problem, but I am pumped for this, its a fricking FC RX7.



I'm not touching it till the Golf is finished so it'll probably be in the background around the garage or wherever I park it, I am going to see what needs changing and drop the car off at a specialist but nothing major is gonna be done till the Golf is finished.

But waking up to this now, is just beautiful.

GOLF WANG



The Mark II is coming along rather well, but it has a long way to go till its complete, but here's what's been done so far:


The car is out of my hands right now, I had to get a subframe fabricated, now there's swaps from the Mark III VR6 but I rather create something specific for this car, while that was being done I had the engine tore down and rebuilt with new peripherals, new pistons, rods, cams the lot, now that the car is being kept N/A, I need as much power I can pull out of this thing.



You might be like, "that's some weird ass colors man", well lemme explain, I'm going with the most famous colors ever put on a VW Golf, the Harley Quinn.



I'm getting the intake powdercoated (the current one is just a placeholder) and I bought some of the cover pieces to fully complete it, so prepare to see it in all its greatness soon.

I had the whole running gear rebuilt, going off the advice of the pros everything had to go I thought I could've kept some of the good parts, turns out they weren't as good as I thought they were, so bring forth, new upper lower control arms, new rear MK II GTI Subframe, new bushings the full works.





along with the entire build I got some stainless steel braided brake lines, 250mm Wilwood Discs and 4 pots all round with EBC performance pads, this is basically a full on restoration at this point, hell when the car is prepped for paint it'll basically be a new car, there is a lot going into this car, I am extremely eager to hit the road when its finished.

This is gonna bankrupt me, I swear to god, but it'll be worth it all when it's finished.


And while I'm spending money on one build, another car just magically just fails to work, make guess what it is ?

The engine looks colorful, which gives a little color boost to the Golf I guess :)

Guess again my friend, it's what you least expected.

# StratoWolf : Race car Golf?

More resto mod ?, euro cruiser ?, you know what its gonna be something sick and quick.


Role Reversal



The C63 has been sold to Mercedes Benz of Long Beach and I got 12 grand for it, I paid close to 20 grand for it, but honestly it's fair, money is money, I rather get money for it than spending a dumb amount to fix it.


Remember I mentioned another car is busted ? did you guess which one cracked ?

*Drumroll*


Ta da !!



The S15 has stopped working, started it a couple days ago on my way to work, huge turn over then *knock knock, clatter clatter, bang* just like that, now I've been expecting for the car to detonate because you know imported SRs are ticking time bombs, so I assume the rods are gone, and lifters are kaput, so this is in need for a rebuild, all my cars are just failing on me honestly and you know whats the sad part ?



I just bought these johnnies man, I just bought em, I even rolled the rear fenders for the deep dish to fit and I was gonna get the car balanced:



Oh these beautiful ass rims are 18' Chromed Garson Deep Ryugi's these are the hardest VIP rims ever imo and they, were expensive as shit to get my hands on, spent about y'know a lot like V$1,250.00 a lot, I didn't even get the rest of the caps but it looks even better without them honestly.

I failed the teachings of sensei Soju but the R33 and VS-XXs rims are my spares, I dunno I have a wheel addiction, could you blame me ?

To replace my daily chariot guess which car turned out to be the most reliable while also being known for being notoriously UN-reliable:



This motherfucker.

Now I'll admit I did some minor things, I took advantage of the holiday deals and bought some BC Racing coils from Enjuku, lowered it and that's about it, what ? I can't be seen in a monster truck.



Along with the drop, I yellow tinted the lights, and slapped a massive sticker on the windshield:



If you know where this is from, you a real one, now I have a plan for this car but it's not gonna be implemented until the Golf is done and now till the S15 is done or until I get another car and by that I mean a proper daily, like a Sentra or a Bora or some shit, now back to the plan; Rotary Drift car, massive wheels, outrageous paint and beat on like an abuse child (bit insensitive but accurate) now its gonna be costly and time consuming but I want to see it done, I am gonna part out the S13 thats in Japan to fund this build.
(basically sell the shell, wheels parts of the 240 and use the LS till the 13B is finished, heheehehheehe)

But for now its gonna be a lil beater.



Lets have some fun boys.
