# holeecrab : Glad to meet you guys! i had a huuuuge blast.



Though i doesn't think my car feels the same. Would be recovers ASAP though!

damn that looks bad. Hope the radiator didn’t blew up

Added 29 seconds later:

# 11000rpm :
WARNING! THERE MIGHT BE A LOT AF PICS!

Nikko and guys #2/2

(maybe)
After the event's finished, there was an drift matsuri held at the the same place.

So I was wandering parking lots& pit grids to find another dudes, then a VR38-sounding car was driving around.



holeecrab's 86...? BRZ....? FRS...? whatever anyways.
Unlike other 86s, and also unlike JZ or LS swapped 86s, he had an VR38 from R35 GT-R swapped which freshen my ears.
I mean.. JZ or LS swapped machines sound nice, but his VR38 was somewhat different from them lol
Never thought he'd come here tho. hope him a great skids!

Wandering same place over&over again, I found another dude's car, too.



Well, Bad.compqny's "NISSN" !
Me and him greeted each other friendly, hes also an nice guy, told me some useful car-related infos.
He even has a crazy feature too! (will tell you later :) )

But I didn't know something crazy would happen till then.......
and that was,



Pushing his car to near pit exit since his turn was coming soon.
I was just literally "?????????????" when he asked for it. Well I kinda tried pushing it, doing it myself alone it hasn't moved at all! shit.
After few matsuri managers and Soju saw me struggling, a miracle finally happened.
We pushed the car all together and he could leave here and wait for his turn...
Seems hes got his reverse gear dead or removed...hmm hmm.



Finally his turn has came and he redlineed it all the way as he left the pit. After the laps he explained that as a Thank-you sign :p
There goes his pics..


This is what I told you above about his crazy feature; (more like feature's')
His godlike skill along with ignition cut popping all the way.


His S13 just got ruled by him.
When S13 lacks the power, he kicked the clutch with no fucks given, redline it, bang the ignition cut, then pulls even harder on next gear.
I think he has kicked clutch about 4 times in a row lol
So to speak his style, its like "Running hot af but doesn't overheat that bad".


And MACKAY'S E46 sedan after Bad's laps.
This E46 was running pretty solid although there was something not enough.
I also did tandem runs with him which I dont have its footage unfortunately. I'm sure MACKAY has them!


Then Soju's Supra warming up tyres learning the rough course.
Not a common car you see on Japanese drift track I think?? :p
Not to mention his setup is highway racer oriented style that is far from drifter style.

But he tried overcoming those inconveniences!

Despite he spun out he was good,
Trying to drift a car over 450hp with no aftermarket knuckles is something respectful.
He will be drifting much better and comfortable when the setup goes right, like Max Orido's Supra.

holeecrab's lap has came ...
.

Wait, where are you going dude???
DUDE??????

Shit, something worst of the day's just happened.
His machine was about to initiate first corner but the car understeered for unknown reason,
which caused his muffler fell off somewhere and made the whole front-end smashed.
Damaged front suspension seems to be the problem... just i think. I hope him&ppl around are ok anyways..

...

After the accident, we managed to relax ourselves waiting for their laps being come.
Finally it was my turn.

I took Soju a shotgun ride together since I thought that'd be the best way to relax ourselves.


Rear wheel's slightly in the air...


Doing my best I could.

...

After all of my friends' lap were done, Bad.compqny decided to take all of us shotgun rides with his JZX100 to cheer us up. No pics tho sry :( he has all of them.

Though, It was already early evening after those shotgun rides.
Other friends' went to their home while me& MACKAY went to sleep in our own car since we haven't found proper accommodations around Nikko, shit.




So this was how our last week was, fellas. Good&Bad happened at the same time.

Even thogugh I'm in Japan, the shopping continues.




After the matsuri's finished my rear tyres went burst so I thought it'd be nice to have each rims different,
and this is the result of going through for used wheels; Half set of MB Battles rims with Advan Neovas.
It was real cool offer I couldn't refuse... both tyres&rims are in new-ish condition.

So wbere'd my Gram Lights 57Xtreme go? I gave it to Soju lmao.

Shit, it's been a long day fam.
So much time has passed since last post doing my own shits, having exams, caring my JZX stuffs mainly.
Those complex probs are kinda solved now so Imma show you guys how Ive been doing during those absence.


(ignore the door molding overwriting rays sticker lol)

My Tourer has went through whole new wrap from stickers shop. (you'll surely notice where the shop was)
This is oldschool drifter oriented but I think I have to add more further days
...and brought new wheels too! Half set of Work T7R 2p as you noticed.
I used to run MB Battle wheels past days but there was an unrefusable 'trade offer' of that T7R two days ago.
Kinda satisfied with current look anyways ~_~



Secondary thing is, new steering knuckles.
I ordered Hey Man 800SP knuckles which give 50° of turning radius awhile ago.
Dunno when it was arrived, but it was already in my home from some days ago lol
hmm I also replaced rear hub bushes to new one. Old one has worn too much since the trip to Japan.

So I have new wrap,new knuckles and new shits. Why dont we take it to touge skids?!?!

Here it is, the touge skids.
Since I haven't drifted for months I almost forgot how my JZX was....
Dear Knuckles helped me.
(I saw Soju's supra passing by tho, believe it or not lel)


After some corners I finally could handle the car pushing it full throttle.
Seems I have to replace rear bushes again. lmao

Well this is the end of what past days' were like. See you later!!


(Don't tell anyone I got pulled over by local police after skids lol
I excused him the clutch was too slippy I couldn't even handle to avoid the fine anyways)

~ Finances ~
5 weeks of Paycheck : 3750V$
Knuckles : 500V$

New stuffs??






I've added jdm option sticker this time.



WHAT.

Also bought a daily-use car because my Mark II is waaaay far from daily driving & illegal in many ways. (has registered illegally, loud af,roll-caged,cracks alot, blahblah)
This new one also seems far from ordinary daily driver to non-petrolhead's sight, but whatever lol

Will do finances later!!

So I brought an Cresta.




Has been said driven by only one owner, ran 74123 kms, guarantees mint condition from previous owner.
Yea it really looks mint with R34 GTR rins haha, seems the front wheel was given some spacers I think?? (not to mention the coilover)



R34 GTR rims matched with R34 brembos.. interesting.
I haven't seen those combinations from daily-use ride which driven by only one owner tho.



And infamous 1JZ-GTE in stock state. (bought a car with 1jz again yay)
Not much to write here :x



Interior has been maintained very clean than I expected from an 90's car.
Also it's got automatic gear unlike my expectation. hmm that'd be super comfortable in traffic jam lol



The rear-end has not much special but aftermarket exhaust...
Wait, aftermarket exhaust?? gotta dyno this thing someday!! There must be hidden things underneath the 1JZ.


Lastly, I brought the car for fairly cheap 6200V$ thanks to its automatic transmission even though with those modifications.

MY LOVELY CRESTA!

(onizuka's school vice president be like)

I gave this cresta small update this time; a set of Work XT7 with reasons.


Previous 18x9 R34 GTR rims looked good indeed, but it was pain in the ass when it comes to passing speedbumps.
because it force-rub each wheelhouse due to inches of rims even when cruising slowly.



Passing speedbumps won't matter that much than before...i think maybe lol. (yes it will be fine the car isn't that low than expected)
But one thing I am sure of is; it looks neat!

~ Finances ~

Work XT7: 1850V$
2 weeks of paycheck: 1500V$
4077V$-350V$ = 3727V$

It still looks good indeed! I am still wondering if you will ever get something different, mhm.. Our boy 11k will never grow out of JDM Toyota sedans haha. I believe it is hard to find parts for it in South Korea, so if anything call me and I will scout UpGarages for you, always ready to send some "overnight" parts for you my man :thumbsup:

R34 wheels looked better for sure but you have to keep your daily practical, right? Cresta is still nice tho, stock but good looking!
