Greetings from Downunder

Don't worry I ain't gonna bother you with party pics! ;)
I landed at Brisbane Airport in the early hours and got picked up by Mark in his (my) Supra!
That thing went through some changes. Engine got some serious upgrades! So he dropped me up at my parents house.

As you see we also own a honda! :D


And yes, I got some car roots.
Here's my dads Impala. US Import sometime in the 70's and his ever since.

Btw. my mom got a 90's Mitsubishi Galant. :)

As it was about to party hard Eamon picked me up in his LB BMW M4 (EU import).


And of course him and mark had a bit of fun on the drive.


Well might be some party pix :D!

Today, with a less worse hangover as expected, we met with Liam to catch some waves.


So now I'm about 5 hours from tokyo and have some sleep.

Cheers mates.


Ha! That impala is a nice family car :D ! I like old US Muscles. So is the Galant! Also seems like a nice car community down there!
Have a good flight!

Damn! You guys are too nice! thx so much for all, voted for my Soarer! I am honoured!

Thx Mackay! as I said i'm more than pleased with the work!

In general I didn't do much on my cars except enjoy the rides.

I've been very very lucky that I found a complete Today exhaust Set (incl. Manifold) for 700V$.

Took me a complete evening to change it. But at the end the effort pays off. It sounds so nice.

While driving around tokyo I met some guys that all run Hachirokus and have little meets and races at random tracks once a month. So besides the drifting that could be the next best way to get rid of all my money... hahaha
Actually I will go to a meet soon and than i'll see. The guys told me it might be a good Idea to run another AE for the racing as cars don't leave the tracks as nice as they entered. As if that would be so easy. :/

so far.... so broke....

Ebisu Drift Matsuri!


As it is holiday I took the advantage of driving to Ebisu for the Drift Matsuri! Yeah yeah yeah.
I decided to put on the 17" wheels (spare tires are cheaper) and the old bumper. So three full days of drift fun.
Luckily we got a bonus at work so I was able to afford it without starving! :D

So. I attended G1GP on Wednesday. And man all these guys from around the world! Had so much fun! Well results... not worth to even talk about.


Cornercutting! Not good!

Rest of the time I had a s...load of fun. night drifting, meeting up Alexi, Suenaga, salted and all those people you just follow on social.
Camping at a racetrack is also such a unique thing! sadly the weather wasn't always good but the tire wear was a bit lower due to that!


the only time I managed this turn properly

Lads i'm still pumped! It was amazing! Simply amazing! can't wait for August! It is Drift Heaven!


Cooling down at night.

Finally found the time to update.
Quite some thing happened.

First of all. I should the Soarer. Yes I know. I did this for three reasons. First: I really like to focus on the "racecar" project, second I got a great offer from a mate in Brisbane and third; there been nothing I'd could do to it to make it nicer. So as it kinda stays in the family I let it go...

(one crying eye for sure)

The mighty Levin in the meantime got new taillights. They're basically tinted stock lights with clear signals.



And then...


Race Car

Almost

I told you about these Hachiroku guys run around with? Well it turned out the one of them knew someone, that knew someone..... who's selling his Trueno he used to race and drift with. So we met and after some chatting and a view rounds with the car. I threw 12K on the plate. Well, I handed them over...


It's 86 AE86 hatch. Pretty worn down to be honest. But it's technical condition is ok. And it came with a load of parts.

It has the Blacktop version of the 4GE installed now. But there is a "bluetop" with supercharger that has 50.000km on it as a "spare" :D


The inside is pretty simple down to it's racy use. Buuuut. A Nardi Orido :-X .

Anyway. If I managed to look through all boxes I'll give you an update what's there :)

As the installed HKS coilovers been pretty much done (need a proper rework) I managed to install the brand new D-Max Set I got for the ROTM comp.

As you can see, the guy was into white paint. :D But those brakes are worn to the ground. Need new pads and discs.

And here the other engine is chillin'


So that's it for now. I'm at MACKAY's place, jumping into the S14 and later I need to convince him to do a cage for this little beast soon!

See you at this Meeting later.

Well last post been a while. Had some things going on.

Not much change on the Levin so far.

On the Trueno the BlueTop with Supercharger is in place and running. Still didn't find the time to setup the ECU properly.
In between I visited MACKAY and the guys did, again, a great job on the cage for the trueno.

As you might have noticed I went for new Fenders from a Levin. They are FRP and came so damn cheap. I also got a FRP bonnet so overall some less weight.

I thought about Carbon parts besides the hood. But as my driving skills are "reckless", I think FRP is the more reasonable choice.

Oh yeah, not to forget, I got a set of 16" TE's to fit with the Endless brakes.


Right now it's at the paint both with all the body parts. And I hope it will be ready to race in a couple of days! :D

Thx Dr.

Well the Trueno, which I call a Levin now is back with some fresh paint.

Now I just need to put on some stickers :)

For the engine bay... the Headcover is now black as well. And I got some new wires and belts to add a bit of color. :)


And last but not least... the inside....


Well that's it so far. I hope to get some track time soooooooon!

Oh, yeah the other one is still getting my ass around town.

:cheers: @Lagano!!!!

I managed to get a new picture with the Levin Coupe. Driving around Tokyo by night...





TRACKDAY

As you see, I got some of my stickers on it besides installing the rest of the parts.


So long story short. three of the guys and myself took a day off of work and went to a small circuit about 1 1/2 hours from tokyo. As none of our cars is registered we shared a transport truck. I missed to take a picture! But it looked just awesome those four on the trailer!
After all I need to say, It is really cool still having some rubber on the tires after spending a day on the track. I still need to setup the car proper as right now it want's to go sideways pretty much! Haha! Enjoy the footage...

Scary moment, almost ended up in the rocks!


Yeah I got overtaken a lot of times. My corner speed needs to be improved!


That's one of the AE's my friend owns... Pretty much stock on the outside but a twin turbo setup! Sound so sick!


This one just got finished a week before mine! Sick machine as well! So much carbon parts... damn!


That's racing. One of the guys endet up in the barriers... Luckily it was just the pumper.

So.... that's it for now.

Cheers lads.
