That's exactly what we are going to do. Or a k20. But the 4g is more plausible

日本へようこそ

Baisically, we're in Japan now! Not that we moved here, nonono, we decieded that we need to take a "break" from all the shitboxes that we own and decieded to make a trip to Japan. The plan was to sell the cars that are worth something, buy plane tickets, buy a car in japan, visit some places and baisically have fun there. Soo Jfernando1 decieded that he can sell his V8 corrado and I decieded that I can sell my 350z and my miata. Both of my cars found a buyer immediately and I got 5800V$ for them and the corrado sold shortly after that giving us a total of £13920 or 18272V$.

*Corrado spotted in couple of places after we sold it*








Earlier this week after we sold the cars we bought 2 plane tickets to Tokyo for £600 each and we backed our luggage and we did typical stuff that you do when you go on holiday. The flight took 12h and we landed in Tokyo at 12:43. Jet lag was killing us but since the dealship that was selling our cars was pretty far from the airport we decieded to take an uber instead of walking (-£20). You might be wondering what cars did we buy? Well,







That's right, I got for myself an R34 GT-T with an RB25DET NEO and Jfernando1 got himself a riced 180sx that looks like this











Not the best looking 180 but it's a good base to work on. It has an SR20DET with some small mods done to it, overall nice on the inside but ugly on the outside. We checked for leaks and stuff that was possible to check for at the place, everything looked like it's good so we handled the cash and then we drove to the hotel (-£378 for 2 rooms since we aren't gay).


THE NEXT DAY

The 2nd day in the land of the rising sun. Our first point of the day was to wash our cars so they look just a bit better (-£10). Next we gave them a full tank of gas (-£100) so we don't suddenly run out of it and then we set off to MACKAY's shop to check the cars more proffesionally and do typical maintenance.





















We arrived in Mackay's shop in the evening, checked the drivetrain components as well as did a fluid change. Thanks again Mackay for letting us in.
We're now on the way to Nikko curcuit so if you are in japan, come here, a lot of v$ people might show up.

# skip : Skyline and a semi-built 180sx for only V$6666?
Too cheap. Fix them prices please.
We based prices on this and this. And btw, we use pounds, I even asked BB93 if they're allowed and he said yeah. 6666 pounds is slightly over 8751$. Appreceate that you care about making rp's more realistic.

Okay so we were suposed to be on the Nikko curcuit for some time but our cars broke and we needed to find what exactly caused it. We're like 9 or 10km's from the curcuit itself on a gas station, if anyone that has tools in his car could come here and help us we'd really appreceate the help.

The issue was that a cable got ripped during driving there, and so the wiring's now a bit messed up. Which is why my car broke on the way there.

Guys, what part of Japan are you in? .
Maybe I can go up there with you and we'll go to some circuit with the cars (I take the Miata)

Added 1 hour 7 minutes later:

Guys, are you in Tokyo? , It's close for me, so if you want to go there, and take the opportunity to get my new car, or take the miata hahahaha

CHAPTER 1: Finding out the problems.

*this chapter starts about an hour after our last upadate*
Sooo we found out what was the problem with our cars. In my GT-T one of the hoses that connect to the raidiator rotted out and broke off completly leaking coolant for about 8km's, so it'll be pretty easy to fix this. The problem
with the 180 is a bit more difficult to fix. And more pricey. Remember what had happened to Jeremy Clarkson in Top Gear Patagonia special? The ripped cable? Well, that's exactly what happened here. JF1 told me that he pulled
over because the tach suddenly stopped working (well it was turning on and off for some time). So since his car is more useable than mine I found the closest UpGarage and told JF1 to drive there and get me a new set of raidiator
hoses.

CHAPTER 2: Fixing them.

*about an hour later*
Well, he's back which means that we might get to Nikko today! I'm so excited to see all the different cars! I took the raidiator out while he was driving to the upgarage so I can start fixing immidietaly after he gets back here.
*20mins later*
The raidiator's in! Now onto filling it up with coolant.
*5mins later*
It works! And JF1 told me that he'll continue the journey with his phone as a speedometer. Should work.

CHAPTER 3: Nikko!

Well, we're here! I know that it took us longer than expected but at least we know now where's the clostest upgarage :D I hope that I'll get to drift a bit but for now I think that we should search for other fellow v$ members.
*the next day*
Well, I think that we arrived too late because we can't find anybody here xd But since we're here we are going to have some fun.














CHAPTER 4: Preparing to leave the country

It's been a great week here in Japan, but all journey's eventually come to and end, and that's what happened. And since we don't want to ship our cars to the UK, we decieded to drive them back home through
Russia, Belarus, my home country Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and a bit of France.m Google maps says that it's over 12000 km's and it'd take us 142h of non-stop driving which is about 6 days. Ofc we won't drive 6 days without sleep, that's impossible ;)

Chapter 5: Home!

Well, we are back in the UK. There isn't much to talk about regarding the 6 day trip, it pretty much was:
Step 1 (Russia): Avoiding potholes, gopniks and drinking vodka
Step 2 (Belarus) : Same as step 2
Step 3 (Poland) : Translate everything into english for JF1
Step 4 (Germany) Avoid everything
Step 5 (the Netherlands) : search for Coffee shops (if you know what I mean ;) )
Step 6 (Belgium) : just drive through this country
Step 7 (France) mostly just driving and Eurotunnel trip
And we are back to London!







*This part of upadate ends about a week ago*

Now, onto recent stuff:
- The 240z is finished and it sold like a day after I posted an ad for it.
- I sold the 240z, mustang and my rsx for a total of 21000 pounds
- And in their place I got myself this:







Yes, I bought a 2008 Porsche 911 turbo. It had a small accident, nothing too big though.
And JFernando1 got himself an S class Mercedes. Not a new one though. W140 to be specific. We'll show it to you when it arrives from Poland.

Well, allow me to show you the route that we took: *LINK*
As you can see, we basically drove through whole Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany and bits of the Netherlands, Belgium and France. Yes, 12000km is a long drive but it sure was fun!

That trip was quite expensive with the cars you had but that doesn't matter if it was fun, right? Anyway good that you're back home safe and sound.

Nice 997, but you should get arrested for stealing it lol. It may look intact on the outside but being so cheap it probably has some major problems.

(btw 997 Turbo has a different exhaust. Also when did you get a 240Z and a Mustang?)

In a purchase long ago, which I labeled vaguely, go check the updates.

I bought a Mustang, a 240z and three others.

I added them all into one purchase, without listing what they are.

Unfortunately, we never did anything with the Mustang, so thought it would be a better idea to sell it.

Added 3 minutes later:

You'll find out what the other ones were at some point, but I'll elude that the recent Porsche isn't the only one we have, and there's something a bit more Japanese sitting around.

There's also another of a car I seem to get more and more of.

I don't remember, though I think you can find it in Light Edition.

Added 1 hour 48 minutes later:

Update; we now have another car.

After a bit of searching, we found the worst Mitsubishi available. We weren't looking for it, but, we did.



Well, the interior may look good, but that's after both extensive cleaning and removal of general junk that was in the car.




There was also the other thing we did to it; the engine swap. We bought an engine out of an E46 M3, admittedly from a crashed one, and it had been sitting, and was not sure to be working when bought. It did, but it could of not worked, which would of raised larger issues.






Weirdly, it can drift, though it is running on a sketchy system to deliver drive to the wheels. There's no adapter in place, it uses the gearbox that came with the engine (and some assorted pieces of metal that were lying around).


There's more to come.

Well, when I posted the upadate the auction was at 9100$ which we rounded to 10k$ which is £7445. Also, what you saw is estimated retail valiue, which is what their guess is on how much previous owner paid for it when it was new OR it is the car's MSRP.
