So, been quite busy with stuff so let's have a monday update on what happened the last days.
- Monday -
A week ago I went to Nikko Circuit to improve my track skills a bit and get to know the S15 better.


Close overtake with this S2k. Hard one I need to say. :) No contact here!

So after all I am quite happy how the car handles. Next time I might lap myself. :)

Later that day came back to the garage and Happily received some huge boxes from Osaka.

I was kinda struggling with the RPS13. Sell it, keep it, kill it someday. As I am the left one to compete in Dori events, i want to represent Icon Motorsports best possible way. And we all confirmed my missile wan't do that. So... Spend some time hammering and and welding to get the Body back in shape.

-Wednesday-
While chasing stickers and stuff I ended up in the suburbs. Browsing some boxes of old mags and stickers. While chatting with the owner about my X81 he told me there is a guy selling a x71. And a couple of hours later i found myself with a new car.

It's a high milage GX71 Mark2. that went through a...idk... makeover. Made in 85, with all the classic red interior 170k+ on the counter and a 1JZ.
Turbo and... you name it. Which is running like sht. Covered in primer. Well 6k is a quite good price for it so not going too crazy on this one. Luckily
the trunk hold all he body trim. Told you I get a classic soon :)

Another evening with boxes.

Yeah i made some commitment here.

-Thursday-
Basically not much beside a photoshoot of cars I did liveries for.



-Friday-
Took the RPS13 to Benny san. For some fresh paint. Should get it back tonight. So we'll see how that's gonna look.


That's it for now, but be sure a start some spamming soon.

Oh damn man ! This update was sick ! Congrats on the Gx71 ! It looks so dope ! Your S15 is a track monster man , that's for sure ! I'm also really happy about the S13 ! It's finally going to look better ! But for real , I can't wait to see what the gx71 turns out to be ! That 1J could really be brought back to life if you give it a little clean-up and rebuild ! Either way , sick cars as always ! I'm really looking forward to the next update ! :-X

Thx guys. Appreciate the kind words! I simply like the T7's! They are not that hotboi imo more racy.
@ Nightrunner mine ain't no missile any more. ;)

Talking about the RPS let's jump straight into this update.


After a working weekend in Osaka and another nights of putting the prints on the body, the RPS finally looks like a proper team car. So to speak, the SX180 is now a representing car or Icon Motorsports for the 18/19 season at Dori Events around.

So yesterday i used the rain break here, headed over to Nikko and gave it a spin, took pics and see how the new setup is working out.
First then, picture time.


Here a peek on the upgraded SR20. with a new Greddy Turbo, Intake, Cam's etc. all done in Osaka :)! Get you a proper spec list soon.


Now even with the 18" Work T7's the S13 is going into slides way quicker and for sure faster.


And thanks to the Heat Maker knuckles, handling, control and angle are awesomely improved!


So first time I vent to Nikko and didn't destroy any thing! Car feels good but not yet perfect.
And yeah interior changed a bit as well. But this I get to you more detailed some time.


So basically that's it. More pics then text, I know. But still busy over here.

As I mentioned the weather here in Tokyo. I took the X-Chassis for a ride this morning to the shop.


And as it stopped drowning i ran outside and took pics for the ROTM. :)
Well here is the engine bay I didn't show so far.

This is how a new/old stock engine looks like with 396km on the count.

So again. Thx for reading and watching. Feel free to comment in the section down below!

Update time.
Basically just small changes here

Took a little family picture at a nearby parking lot.
As you might notice there is no X71 Cresta. Well, I am not into flipping cars quick. Aside of those I just had to get from A to B due to working on my projects... anyway. While working on the 71 one of our random visitors arrived with a 84' Celica XX outside japan known as the Celica Supra. Long story short. He liked the 1JZ powered X71 a lot so did I like the stock XX. Handshake and change of keys an I got this.

That is quite cool as I stated here with a Supra and now I do have one again. Almost. :) It is an US import which makes it really rare here but also a bit less of value. Anyway.

That night I went out and met with the boys. ;)


Riding along Tokyo, did some tunnel rev's :) and finally got to Shuto Kōsoku Dōro which is our Expressway for those who didn't know that.


After the road got almost empty. It was about time...

That wasn't about racing in general but to kick that Z and the Porsch was very nice :) But that Supra... no chance.
And btw. my gps system recorded 286 km/h. So not yet the 300 but close :)

Next day, I spend working on the XX. Which means, lowered the Suspension, as it got Koni's (finding a key for those was funny) and mounted the Watanabes I bought from Renny. Then of course, transit plates and up to the togue.


Just before the rain started again, one more picture.

That's it for the XX for mow. It feels nice. And I am not sure what to change. Well the 1G even does it's job very well. So we'll see.

Road to R's

Friday afternoon after my Supra enjoyment I went to the suburbs to meet a friend. And pic up my ride for the R's meeting.
I can't show up in anything but a R right?
So for a couple of days he got my S15 and I got this...


Luckily the rain stopped when I arrived the shop to load boxes of stickers, shirts, caps and other goodies.


Then straight to Fuji Speedway to catch up with Lagano, MACKAY and Erwin. To set up our stuff!

As it is Tuesday now, and I am in Osaka working on our S15 i started to review all those pictures we took. So be sure for a great coverage of this years R's event. It was also nice to meet "Crazy" and hope to see his S13 LS the next days.

So far that's about it. Cheers!

Oh... updated family picture...

Man! You finally took the S15 for a spin at expressway ! I am sure you will catch that Supra next time, still wondering how much HP is under its hood. I am not even going to start talking about SX as that car is just pure beauty now, both of our drift cars are fucking amazing and I am sure you know what I am talking about. :rolleyes: Anyways that Celica is definitely an interesting find, those cars always remind me of Starions, ah, looked for one before but those cars are just not for me.

R's Meeting was a blast, damn, I don't know when we will do full coverage but it is going to be good! Our booth killed it with all that merch and other goodies! :thumbsup:

Yeah it was about time. That supra... he didn't tell me about the hp. But overall I am happy, took a Porsche and A Nismo Z out of the game. And the previous GTR :) should do a little scoreboard :)

Damn we had a great weekend! Loads of great cars, great pople of course and it totally payed off!

And our dori - dori's. The make one sexy couple!!!!
