Quick update on my 180SX.

I got it registered yesterday, so it's finally road legal. Nothing much has changed. Still looking for a S15 bumper for it. After I finish the mounting of the S15 bumper when I find it. Also I need to find a passengers seat, maybe I'll change the drivers seat for a bucket racing seat and a new steering wheel.

Basically this is the shit that needs to be done on the 180SX:
-Get a turbo kit
-Get a bucket seat
-Get a new steering wheel
-Find an S15 bumper
-Lower that motherfucker
-Get camber plates
-Paint the car


Finances:
-745V$ 180SX registration
-30V$ 180SX gas
Money left: 37265V$

Yeah we need to do some bodywork on your FD. It needs it really bad tbh :)). But at least it works properly and we did fuck up some tires.
Oh yeah Zero has an AE86 so if u got any questions about the engine or some shit ask him, he'll definitely help you.

And yeah you'll be our first visitor, so its gonna be fun.

If you have luck try to find me an S15 bumper, and TEIN coilovers, used ones ofc. Ask Zero if he needs anything for his 86. I'll drive with you to UpGarage since my 180 is registered now.

Could be the exhaust. Or you need to check your valves and pistons and camshafts. When you come here tomorrow we will check it.

So after ordering a full TODA N1 exhaust thats genuine and a 'REAL' Cusco LSD from ☆A U T O☆S A L O O N☆ M A G I C K E☆ i went and picked them up same day since i am in Osaka and they are (logic).

I installed the exhaust pretty quickly since it just bolts straight up and uses stock hangers making it ten times easier. The LSD was simple but still needed yngsensei to help me and jeff to bolt driveshaft in at same time.

Here' a pic of the new exhaust (just a bay shot with new header)

Yeah it was a simple job but still needed 3 people to do it tho. It was fun tho.

And it was fun having markavodas in our garage. Cool to see another AE85 running and drifting.


(P.S. I'll post pics later)

AE85's are decent but single cam shitboxes essentially, nothing compared to a proper 86 ;)

Your logo reminds me of the Red Suns in Initial D...?

Added 6 minutes later:

And once I'm back to the shop (currently the El Camino is getting Towed from the Ports to the Garage) I'll be uploading some of the El Camino pictures! Can't wait to show Zero and yng it!

Been busy

I haven't posted much about the Supra in the past couple days, because I've been working on her. Bought some stuff for it, and made it look better. Basically I've been working on a hydraulic handbrake and got a new gauge for it because I didn't even have gauges in the car. And I put my 180SX up for sale, it's in the used cars section, and sold the SSR rims from the car to markavodas.

I bought Apexi RPM Gauge meter on EBay and a SICKSPEED hydraulic handbrake kit like 10-15 days ago, and waited for them to arrive.

Here are the actual links:

APEXI GAUGE
SICKSPEED HYDRAULIC HANDBRAKE

And I just had to mount them on the car and I painted the handbrake in a minty mint color.

Here is the gauge and the new handbrake


And I bought some idk brand shorter springs for the car to give it a better look, Jeff and Zero helped me out with mounting it and stiffening out the shocks.

The car looks like this now:



And the part that everyone loves, FINANCES:

Finances:
-104.86V$ Apexi gauge
-117.13V$ SICKSPEED hydro handbrake
-120V$ New springs
+700V$ Sold the SSR rims
Money left: 37623.01V$

Well I checked the viring on the Supra. It has some problems with the fuses. So I got a set of brand new fuses from a shop nearby. They cost around 10 bucks and also got a relay for the electronic fans on the radiator. Because the fans turn on when the temperature goes higher than the measure they're set up. So installed a switch and relay on the fans. If you saw the Noriyaro video on his R32 missile when he did a walk around of his car. Basically its the same thing.

Jeff and Zero helped me a lot with that stuff. So I think the cars engine will run better. Also I need to order a boost gauge and oil pressure gauge. I'll do that tonight.

Oh and btw, I sold the 180SX to a local here. 2800V$ was a good deal tbh. So, I need to decide what should I do next, because the Supra is a missile and I dont think that it will pass inspection.

Stay tuned guys!

I heard that theres a R32 Skyline GTS-T on the bottom of Akina. Some guy was driving it and drifting it for some time. As I have seen it sits in his backyard it's missing the front and rear bumper, hood, trunk and all the lights. But I'll see how much he wants for it.

Well, Finally! The El Camino has arrived in Japan for the first time! It arrived on April 7th at 6am, So me and Zeros friend drove to Port Kobe to get it at around 11am, and we waited for the guy (who was sharing the 2 car container with me) to unload his SICCK 1984 Toyota Celica Supra. We took some pictures of it and the Mk2 Supra guy said, that he will go to our shop one day and let us drive his built 2JZ Powered car. But back to the El Camino, After we towed the truck to the shop, yngsensei and Zero helped me with the Engine, doing the cowl induction system, so my new hood actually is functioning and looks cool, changed all the oils, filters, belts and some other things. Next were installing the Bumpers and the rest of Emblems and gonna try to fire this angel up!

It gonna be so dope seeing an US car on the streets of Japan. I thought that it's gonna be such a pain in the you know where to work on the engine, but it was surprisingly easy. This car is basically a work horse, and we need that.

And I did one more thing to the Supra. After sorting out the wiring problems I had to add one more thing. A new headlight and no it's not the Supra headlight.
What I did was, I took a old reflector and the light bulb in it was broken, changed the light bulb with a HID one, and mounted it on the front.

I need the extra visibility because imma go drift in half an hour


And the single headlight just didn't work out for me


Finances
-10V$ Fuse kit
-15V$ Relay
-7V$ HID Light bulb
+2800V$ Sold the 180SX
Money left: 39351V$

# Sleepin mOnkey : man an drift truck will be awesome.

Well At the moment the El Camino is not gonna be a drift truck, it costed way to much to be one right now! So the team is just using it to haul and tow stuff, like our cars to drift meets and other things. Also im going to use it as a daily now because, the drift missile rx7 was horred to daily, and i was never planning to use the rx7 as a daily because i know it will break down alot in future. Plus ill let the people of Japan see a muscle car in person cuz they dont see them everyday! And in future im planning to go to car shows with it one day..

Actually before the LED bar, Noriyaro had a broken R32 headlight and he put a cut out bottle on it.
