# 11000rpm : My back still hurts even after that shitty ferry thingy..

Gotta be careful bro

# Soju :

Finally In Japan......

Probably by now you've heard a great news from 11000RPM. Yes we've arrived in Japan safe and sound.

11000RPM got his accomodation through Nishiyama, and I just decided to stay at MACKAY's place until things settle down.

So, he basically mentioned all of the stuff we took care of 'after' the arrival, and I'd like to share how it was done. Basically it was a pain in the ass to work around with those bureaucrats arguing over automobile shipment to Japan.



We took care of all the stuff in Korea and headed to the ship yard, and boy it was a terrible experience. I had to stay over 18 hours in the boat doing nothing, and that is the worst thing that could happen by now.

After the ferry arrived in Japan, we directly headed to the freight customs department to return our rides... But there was a minor problem.





Forget about the import/export documents on the windshield. I guess the cargo where the cars were held wasn't really clean, and I could see the dust all over the car. Of course 11000RPM didn't like this very well, since his car was recently repainted.



Anyway, we cleaned our rides at the gas station near the local highway. We also refueled our car.



... And that's how we arrived in Japan. Pretty shitty experience on a boat, but fantastic in our rides.

Make yourself at home man! It was nice to finally meet you both. Also it is shame that the shipping company treated you both so poorly, next time travel with other company.

Thank you guys. I called the company and they would offer a compensation when we return to Korea.

A short update.



I prepared some stuff for the track day. I cleaned my Supra, and refueled it just to make sure there is enough fuel to reach the destination.



I brought this GoPro with me so I could use it for both dashcam and some "drift" footage so I could show it to Mr. Lee.



I brought new tow straps as well. New straps were installed and I hope this car doesn't get towed inside the track.






Btw, driving on the "wangan" expressway was really fun. It's sad that I forgot to turn the GoPro on while I was driving. :awesome:

Nikko Circuit



Yes, I have arrived @ Nikko Circuit with 11K. I did some last-minute tweaks to the tires - white lettering.

Yeah, the car has been quite dirty when I got here. The dust and dirt water puddles weren't happy at all.



Actually I was nervous about "drifting" with Supra, because the car had enough power to slide, but it wasn't tweaked for drifting.

It was more like a "wangan racer" type setup, which could hurt the tires, suspension arms, rubbers and stuff.



I headed to the circuit, preparing all the stuff that was needed. I borrowed multi-point seatbelt from 11K, since he had several spare belts.



I was really nervous at the time, and the helmet was too tight for my big head.



I strolled around the circuit with slower pace to make sure every corners are safe. And I started to test the car's ability to slide.



...But it was too difficult to control such powerful engine with stock steering angles.

I am lucky that steering knuckles and arms are still in one piece. I could have towed my car to garage if it were broken or split into pieces.



I've tried drifting with S13 and S14 which had relatively lower power than Supra, but it was whole new experience.

Like this photobomb, I spun countless times, but actually it was fun as hell. I could feel my joy all over!



After several laps, Supra was covered with dust, fumes and rubber. Well it was kinda dirty in the first place.

I had to clean them off, and it took a lot of time. Luckily the car was still in one full piece.





I asked 11K to take a lap with me and he responded with a smile on his face.

Getting inside the Tourer felt much more like getting into a proper drift car.



... and boy he was really doing his job well! His skills were much better than mine, and the car's condition was really good thanks to MACKAY.



He was really edging the course, just like aho before! I was actually a bit terrified of his super-speed entry.



aho took the photo of me and 11K enjoying the course.



I am bit surprised that the new roll cage actually made the car feel better. Even I, the passenger could feel the difference.



We took a coffee break after several laps, and we headed to the track again to watch others do the lap.

Yes, I'm talking about you guys. 11K will show more photos of us!



Saleti - Sure thing. Maybe someday ;)

It was awesome seeing everyone on the track!! Too bad that me and Skip couldn't do a few laps, his 180 was barely holding together after Mobara lol.

Your Supra is a beauty, and you drifted pretty well with stock steering angle! But the Mark 2 and Chaser drifted like pros, i mean those are some proper drift cars.

If you guys are staying for some more time we'll have to meet again to show you my S14! :D

That would be great! I hope we can stay longer :)

i've read somewhere that Supra isn't exactly nimble for Drifting due to it's rigid structure, though, looking at you drifting that machine few days ago makes me amaze lmao

Back To Korea


# holeecrab : i've read somewhere that Supra isn't exactly nimble for Drifting due to it's rigid structure, though, looking at you drifting that machine few days ago makes me amaze lmao

Yes, it was really hard to drift this big chassis with stock steering and mounts.

Recently I was busy keeping up with some stuff after the Japan trip.

I had to call my insurance company regarding a compensation from the shipping company, and I had no time to clean my car, so all the dust and rubber pieces were still intact.

It took several days for the shipping problem to be solved, offering V$ 500.

I accepted the offer, and we'll see how 11K handles his problems.



This is basically how it looked after the trip to Japan.



I got the Toyota Supra rear emblems from UP-GARAGE in Japan, costing about V$ 30.



Now I have to check my S13 if it still runs. It wasn't on for quite long time and it was becoming colder, so I think I should check the battery.

Apparently, the battery on the S13 was not dead yet but I had to jump the car, so I headed to the garage to make some changes.

It was perfect to take some time on my S13, so I did some changes. I cleaned and painted the head cover into red.

Also, the battery was replaced as well. And I put the S14 stock wheels again, since I wanted to give more OEM look.

The tires were replaced to Bridgestone Potenzas.



I also found these rare finds while I was in Japan, thanks to 11K. Original Kouki taillights and the infamous "RPS13" plate was installed.





Also, I got tons of stickers from 11K and all other people at Nikko Circuit, and it was really a pleasure.

I decided to put most stickers I collected, or made into the right rear window. Looks kinda trashy, but I like it.

Also, I got those used Nardi steering wheels. Luckily it only needed some cleaning process.



Also I brought these D-MAX floor mats. I really needed those, and I didn't want to make my car floor messy.



Winter is coming... I might find other way to commute while it is snowing.

I was busy doing some small projects and other life stuffs lately. I went to McDonalds for some lunch.



The rear looks better than before.



Picking up what I ordered....



...And this is what I worked on for few days. I ordered Mr. Lee several rolls of 'HKS Retro' patterned wraps to put on.

Also, he engraved the custom HKS logo on the hub, which looks really good.

Thank you guys :)

Recently Mr. Lee offered me a deal because his garage did not have enough spaces to store 'his' cars, and clients cars were taking the space.

He recently imported a near-stock 03' 350Z to Korea and I got interested in her. So I told Mr. Lee a permission for daily use, and he said yes.



.. And this is why I brought this car to my home. It is still in Mr. Lee's hands, but I really like the feel of this Nissan. Brought Not Bought



It's got Bridgestone tires and some no-name coilovers. Other than that, it is pretty much stock.

It says 178014 km on the odometer, so I guess the previous owner/s may have been using her as a daily.



However, I see some potential to this Z33. I might ask him a price.

All Over Again

Well, I've been keeping my Supra in the shop for few weeks, and nothing much has been changed so far.

I ordered some Endless 6P / 4P Brake System for Supra (used), spare headlights from Japan, and new 18-inch Michelin tires.

The Toyo R888 tires I've been using was not in a good shape after the trip to Japan, so it was replaced immediately.

The car was not in use since November, and it gathered some dust.



Black and white dust everywhere...



... And it was done. I also installed a spare Supra lights (used) and rear wipers for more 'daily' use.



The brake system was installed, and I sold the previous Baer Brake System for V$ 1500.

Fitting US-Parts to the Supra was not my style, and finally I got to get the Endless ones for better compatibility.



Probably this Supra will be set up for much better stability and reliability. Most crucial portions will be refit or readjusted.

Essentially it was the whole system I’ve replaced, that’s why it costed so much.

A short update.



The Recaro Full Black Seat & Brackets was installed, costing it V$ 1600. It took several days to be delivered, but it did worth the wait.

The old Mitsubishi Evo Seats I used was replaced, sold at V$ 800. It was good, but I needed better, and lighter one.

Now it's time to find a new hood and wings.
