Ebisu is always fun, i was there once and i loved it!! Too bad that your engine blew, but at least it lasted for a few laps. :P Hope they can fix it up for you, and i think you should have already got a new daily cause your 86 became more "not daily". :D

# tyretear : -goes ebisu matsuri too

Fuck me, right?

By the way I'm expecting a very original swap ;)

anyway let me bump my previous update in case some of you were lazy to read the previous page lul

# holeecrab :
aaaanyway.
it's going to be a long read, but trust me it'll worth it. :P

How long i haven't updated since? well i guess it's not that long but i think you might interested by what i did in the last weekend.
So as you might remember, i've been preparing things to join the Ebisu Matsuri, you know, that drift event that held every year (or is it?) by the famed owner-part-avid drifter Nobushige Kumakubo himself. As an amateur like me and Jorge it was a great chance to meet the drifters around Japan, also it's a good chance to give the exposure to our newly founded Westkyo team and shop.



Aaaanyway that's Jorge car. Hotboi approved. I think i've been mentioned it a few times and you can check the build progress here.

We decided to drive to Osaka by our car, since Osaka to Ebisu took about 7 hours to reach so we decided to go late before the D-day and hoping to arrive in the next morning. We took a break at the local mcdonalds before taking off. Jorge took the asshole award by parking at the handicapped parking area. But not for long, he moves the car. Seems he's very regretful about it :P



Ebisu is considered by a lot of people as a drifting Mecca - Visiting Ebisu is just like a spiritual tour, where you can feel how tough the bond between your car and your soul and erm, what the fuck am i talking about. Oh yeah, Ebisu Matsuri!.
Things been kinda different this year after Kumakubo-san decided to ban all the half-assed cars, if you don't know what i mean - it means those thing that people usually called as "drift missiles", dem car with dents and twisted chassis. As people deemed those car as a purity of drifting but it was plain too dangerous to run at the event like this. Kinda understandable though. You don't want to see any people hurt because they got crushed by the twisted chassis or flying fenders.



Luckily we got the garage near the main straight so we could get a good view. Seen a lot of skilled drivers - i think some of them runs on D1SL, FD Japan and Drift Muscle, and the rest were amateurs who just want to have some fun, like us. I think i saw some of the guys who often post their build at this site too!
At the debrief Kumakubo-san warned us to always obey the circuit rules and don't do reckless things - but the most important is, Have fun.

oh, oh, as you might predict, the course were pretty crowded, but it wasn't depicted well on my images i post above and below. :P



Ok then, track time - Been a month since i heard those SR20 screaming hard. At the first attempt Jorge leads and i chase. As you might predict i was kinda nervous since i wasn't that good at drifting - cough, ER34.



Yeet.



hey seems it all ends well...



...not. Tapped my wing there so some of the bolt went nuts.



Me leading. Kinda likey this shot because the tire doesn't smokes that much. It reminds me with old drifting vid i watch on the VHS, where the cars are underpowered but slidy as hell. Unlike today where everyone smokes even the slightest angle and the only way to win a drift event is putting American V8 engines in your car...
Oh wait i should't do rant stuff, much sorry. Don't want to make a negative feeling around here.

Anyhoo, the event was pretty fun. Everyone seems to enjoy their good time, and everyone feels so friendly to each other. Everyone seems tend to share their knowledge about cars and drifting so everyone could learn a new things. It was pretty cool to see everyone from different background could make a bond by having a similar interest - drifting.

For myself, all seems pretty well until...



FA20 machine broke. It screams "Understandable, have a great day".



Seems the pistons were busted out because i drove it just like a full 24 hours without giving it any proper rest. It's my fault, to be honest, so i can't do much about it. The only thing i'm afraid is how do i bring back to Osaka, since it's practically impossible to bring it back home at such condition. Since i had no choice i had to put this car somewhere safe while i'm thinking how to fix it, properly.

Gladly Kumakubo-san has allowed me to put my 86 into his car yard. Maybe you've ever heard about it, that's the same place where the Alexi/beercan R32 located.
Such honor to park my car in the same place as that one. :D

at the moment i've been back to Osaka, cuz you know, work. But i'll be back to Ebisu in a days to check out the car.

Also the thing i've realized that this car won't be eligible for a daily driving anymore :)) new daily?

Well, that took quite a while wasn't it?


As you might remember, my car broke and i left it at ebisu for a week, also i need a new engine since it was busted.
Anyway before i left it for a week, i bring it to K-Style to get it swapped. I've been preparing everything so when i came back, it's all already done.



And i came back.

Aesthetically, my car doesn't changed much except i've removed the rear wing because the frame is kinda loose. I don't want to see it bounce off through my rear mirror.

Anyway, wondering what engine i've put into my weeb 86?

Told you that i'm going to do nuts.

VR38DETT transfused straight from 2009 Nissan GT-R, with Greddy headers, set the boost to low because i'm a fucking pussy, so it "only" boasts about 584HP.

How do i get it? well, Kumakubo-san offered me to trade this with my old FA, though as obvious i had to pay some additional price.
This engine was actually an abandoned one and used to be Kumakubo's pet projects until he doesn't really feeling it anymore.
As you might knew Kumakubo is known with his Impreza drift machine (other than his lancer, i know about it either lol don't worry) and i guess he'll need this engine in case of spare.
Cuz boxers, you know.



Took it to Ebisu Nishii for a bit of running test.

As you might expect the difference between VR38 and FA20 is quite a lot (duh) so i've expect some kick, and holy shit it kicks hard.



trying to push it on the hairpin....



aaand nailed it. I'm giggling like an idiot. :D
Also probably this is the first time i did not fuck up anything.

As everything is done i've thanked Kumakubo san and the whole Ebisu/K-Style crew and drive home.

...And there goes my Ebisu experience. I'm definitely gonna be back sometimes!


-----




Nothing feels better than home, right? after all those shenanigans i've managed to bring my baby back, and everything goes happily ever after.

Oh yeah, remember that i've planned to buy a daily? well, i've done it. Nothing special though, as i just want took it as my daily driven.
Well, what is it, you wonder?

Here's the teaser.



Full feature coming soon.

That's a great choice for a daily, just try to keep it that way haha.

Your 86 reminds me of the "WTF86" with the VR38! But it needs a new wing ASAP, maybe also a badge on the front bumper as i probably already told you. :)

Talking about Nissan...
Here's my stagea i've been told you guys about.



1997 Nissan Stagea X.



RB25DE, and it's a 2WD, not a thing that you called as a monster but pretty enough to do it's thing.



somehow i got this wheel from the previous owner. Y'all must be knew where this wheel coming from.



I've been doing nothing for the car itself except putting some stickers for the business purposes.
Don't worry as you won't find this car drifting and dominating on your nearest touges. :P

I won't change a lot of thing from this car since i want to use it as the operational car to our garage. Gotta use this for delivering things and bobs.

Anyway, if you're wondering how my 86 look like....


nothing really changed except i put those AVS F7 wheels with a brand new Pandem wing on it, nothing special :D

(sorry for not updating for a few weeks, been in a holiday and pretty much no internet.)
