Mmmmm the S14 restoration is going nicely! Nice selection of wheels too! :D

OORP: Did you make the Eneos gas station texture by yourself? Or is there any link of it? It looks decent, y'know :D

EDIT: Oh, also bring your FC1 to Tsukuba some time! I wanna know the potential it has after that power figure bump ;)
And yep, it's rare to see a new-gen Civic here, let alone a properly tuned one

Thanks man! Yeah I retextured the Weekend Drive Map by CorradoSKJ to have the ENEOS Decals over STATOIL.

And yeah modern Civics are quite uncommon, much less tasteful ones, thanks for the kind words!

# Nightrunner : OH MY FUCKING GOD MAN , THE S14 is looking amazing ! And boy , the CREX ,

Indeed! Wish you were here!! :(

Added 1 hour 16 minutes later:

MOSHI MOSHI WE'RE OVER HERE AT EBISU NISHI




Hey there! So yeah this is what you would typically call a continuation or "part 2" of the Ebisu Nishi Session that Niatross initially covered.

Niatross, Nightrunner, Lagano, and I were able to meet-up at Ebisu, and Shez tagged a long too! He was in a rental though because his cars haven't hit Japanese shores yet. More details on Niatross' Part 1 Coverage so G O ! Check it out !

Picking up where we left off, Muzahid (Niatross) and Dominik (Nightrunner) stopped into the pits to rest and check on their rides. Dominik switched the rears to VSKFs on his ER34, while Muzahid did a whole set change to some Fortecs Squrossas on my S14.





When all was said and done they went out for some E P I C . T A N D E M S







Until such time that they had to hit the pits again. My S14 was misfiring so I had to check on it. It turns out the coil pack wasn't seated in right so we took the spark plug cover off, shook it into place, then popped the cover back on.

Here's Muzahid testing it out and warming up the rear tires



Then WHOOP, CLUTCH DUMP! The S14 went FLYING!



After lunging the car forward Muzahid did his best to stop in time, and he did, err, for the most part.

O O P S




DAMAGE CONTROL




R.I.P. side skirts. 2018-2018





Yeahhh we just removed the skirt until later on before the photoshoot where we sort of hacked it back into place.

On the lighter side of things, we all parked next to each other for a brief moment before setting off.

Have a glimpse of Project Strawberry in drift sesh form! Weds Cerberus IIs were my choice of shoes for this event.



Y A P . G O O D . T I M E S .



S T Y L E . M I X !



And that was that. We proceeded to set off into another round. This time, Muzahid and Ziga (Lagano) were side by side, door to door on each other! Rifky (Shez) was riding shotgun in my S14.



ULTRA CLOSE! No damage has been done and I'm glad about that. Although I really wouldn't have cared anyway since the car is in like 50 shades of white which is epic.



Then it was my turn. I was leading in front of Dominik as he chased me throughout Ebisu, with Rifky now riding shotgun in my S15, doing LOUD CHEERS, and EPIC FUN TIME LAUGHS YO



MAXIMUM ATTACK!






So yeah, that's pretty much how it went down. OH WAIT! I was able to snap some pics of some other non-acquainted attendees!

A solid Z32 300ZX which surprisingly, just did a track shakedown, no drifts! Looks like a Wings West Kit, rolling on Uras Exsols.





And then there's this MADMAN. Word on the street is, this Korean migrated to Japan in 2009, same year Hyundai pulled out! And thanks to a few strings pulled, he was able to bring in a Genesis 3.8 Coupe. RAD! It's got some bolt-on flares and it's rolling on what seem to be some wide ass Work Meister L1s.





After that was a JZX100 Mark II Tourer V. ABSOLUTELY. SENDING. IT.



F to that nasty rear impact though.



While it was cooling down, I discovered that this is a 1JZ-GE+T! He used the factory 1JZ-GE block with high compression pistons, and combined it with a 1JZ-GTE Twin Turbo head. Although it has been modified to accommodate a big single setup.



Shortly after I discovered a twin! JZX100 Chaser Tourer V! In much more decent shape.



SOOOOO SEXY on those R34 stockies WOW.



This cleaner example is powered by big single 1JZ-GTE VVT-i, DAMN.



Another good one, a JZS161 Aristo! I wasn't able to see it in action but it was sitting pretty nice. By this time it had already been sunset.





And during our departure at night we spotted a very drift ready S14.





That's it for that drift day! But the morning after I convinced them to meet me at the dock in their best setups so that I could shoot all of us (with a camera, not a gun. Epic.)





Dominik's ER34. Digging the sticker tune, and the Work Emotion T7Rs (Which he calls XT7s) match the look well.



AP Racing silicon under these wheels to help bring the car to 0km/h on a dime.



My ever-evolving but usually broken Project Strawberry S15. Last week I had to get my fuel pressure regulator replaced. And now I hear a ticking noise when the engine is cold, I think the VCT Sprocket is on its way out. But apart from that, she drives like a dream, and slides even more so.







My other project, the S14. There's not much to say about this car, other than a well excuted Kouki facelift, and its miraculous quarter panel resurrection from a painful crash. Muzahid though, he was crying tears of joy at Ebisu, it's as if the prodigal son has returned. He's gotten used to the RB25 since that time he ran over Dominik's side skirt. Says he misses the power, but it isn't a total downgrade. "Sounds HIGH GEWD LAD." He muttered.





And last, but MOST certainly NOT the least, Ziga's S14 Zenki. This thing was WILD at Ebisu, the RB26DETT sounded orgasmic and goes HARD in this RWD coupe. I'm a fan of the livery, especially that Auto Factory Realize Sticker. Opposite Style G O !



His Z33 brakes are bigger than my OEM ones!





We had an absolute BALL during this trip. Lots of shenanigans, good vibes, laughs, and some RAD CARS. TAKE ME BACK PLS! It's a shame Marc (Macaron_moon) wasn't able to go, but he had other personal plans to attend to, more on that on his upcoming RP update!

YUP, end of the line. That's all the coverage I have for you folks, thanks for tuning in! I'll have more updates on my cars soon!

Weeeew boiiii sure you guys had a lot of fun! :D
Muza's run with Lagano looks ultra-tight over there! ;)
And I bet Rifky/Shez looked like this: *LINK* :))
May his vocal cord have a good rest after that day :)) :))

As of the cars outside the jolly convoy, I'm sure the Korean boys (Soju and 11K) will approve that Genesis so much ;)
And oh, that Aristo is just pure fire, I love that kit choice :drool2:

Speaking of which, I can spot an S2K in the background of the docks pics. Who's S2K is that?

RB S14 gang going strong!! :cheers:

Man, Ebisu is so much fun, especially with wild runs like we did sometimes!!! I didn't really wanna do such intense tandem runs cause i often drift all over the damn place, i got way too close to Muza a few times lol. Good that you let him take his old S14 for a ride, even if he got a bit too excited at first and almost messed up a R34 in the process. xD I was a bit shocked but then i just laughed it off. Long story short, it was pure awesomeness as always, so many other great rides too! My S14 will have to take a break now, poor thing had to go through all this drifting 1 week before this as well so i'll have to give it a proper inspection.

YES S14 CONNECTION STRONK

It really was! Yeah I know you say that a lot but you and your S14 go together like peas and carrots. You had good control, and aggressive but rad lines!

Hope your drift car gets some TLC soon and then we can do some sessions again :cheers:

Added 1 hour 7 minutes later:

Epic Update Time


AYYYYYY what's up! Guess I'm due for another updateeeeee

DYING? HMMMMM




I was supposed to take the S15 out and meet up with some friends, which is why I swapped the cars and left FaCe1 inside WestKyo, while I brought Project Strawberry. But at around 9 PM, it decided that it didn't want to run well. Epic.



Car starts up perfectly. The problem? Ticking noise around the valve cover. Seemed like a dead VTC Sprocket, so I called the meet off and went straight to WestKyo smh can't even pull a premium before Race Wars :facepalm:



After that I just decided to meet up with them the day after instead. I went ahead and used C-REX though for reasons you will quickly realize.





After the meet I went to meet someone who was selling his pair of OEM S15 hubs and knuckles. After inspecting the GOODS I paid him 16,000 yen (V$160) and off I popped. Although on the way I grabbed myself a pack of 10pc Chicken McNuggets at McDonald's before I sprinted the car to WestKyo.



WORK TIME!




Yeah so I guess the ole' SR just couldn't take the limiter bashing at Ebisu Nishi last week. Turning the boost up wasn't such a good idea either, probably. I broke 3 rocker arms, and the VTC cam sprocket was indeed due for an overhaul. Which means, YES. Project Strawberry Ichigo S15 will be out of commission for a few. At least until I get all the parts I need. I already ordered a new sprocket set with the o-rings and washers (V$334.45), 8 new OEM rocker arms (V$39.52 x 8 = V$316.16), Tomei Rocker Arm Stoppers (V$72), and Tomei .256 PonCams with 11.50mm Lift for intake and exhaust (V$342) all conveniently ordered from FRSport.

While waiting for those parts I ordered, I decided to get to work on the suspension.



Goodbye Wisefab, it was nice knowing ya.



Got them factory hubs on, got the OEM brakes on too. Brake pads need replacing as well as the brake lines so I'll order ceramic pads and braided lines within the coming weeks.



Back to OEM!


Yeah that's where the S15 stands as of this writing. Moving on, S14 update!

Back to OEM+!




I managed to trade my Fortecs Squrossas in for this set of OEM R33 GT-R Stockies. Straight trade with tires, Pretty sweet imo.



I also spray painted the rear bumper, looks a lot cleaner than the previous red it had that just did not match lolol.

That's it for the S14. And now, for my latest acquisition.

TOO SOON JUNIOR




You guys may or may not have seen this car's prior cameos in some of my pics. I even got Rifky (Shez) to drive it during our docks photoshoot with some other peeps (read back if you don't know about it yet).



I've been wanting a RWD Honda for a while now, and I finally caved. This one was just perfect, caught my eyes, my ears, my mind and my heart as soon as I saw it.



Old pic from when I had just brought it home.



Okay so details; This is a top grade 2001 Honda S2000 Type V (AP1). Factory Grand Prix White (Still super shiny), 131,100 km on the clock, sha ken until March of next year. Has the Type V goodies like the OEM Front Lip, OEM Trunk Lip, Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGS), more responsive and firm shocks, better sway bars, and an LSD. Price, you say? 1,280,000 yen (V$12,800) which isn't really cheap, but is worth every penny considering how pristine this amazing machine is.



Under the hood is the OG AP1 F20C that revs all the way up to 9K RPMs!! Makes 247 hp and 218 lb-ft from factory. On another note, those heads still look new!



2 previous owners, but both were said to have cared well for the car.



Trunk carpeting looks almost brand new still! Tails are still shiny as well







Everything on the interior is FRESH TO DEATH. A/C is COLD AF, gear shifts are super crisp, and the LOVELY digital dash works perfect still.





Such a dream to drive, dealer maintained according to the records. Honda, The Power Of Dreams.



So yeah, that's my new S2Kool for ya. Can't wait to tinker with this thing and unravel its potential! :bananajump:

Finances:
V$68,119.52 + V$1,880 (2 Paycheck at V$940/week) + V$4,500 (Accounting and Law Services Payment Received, + Christmas Bonus) - V$160 - V$316.16 - V$72 - V$342 = V$60,474.91

Well in case AJ wants to be E X T R A C H I L L ~ :))

Man I really dig that S2K,lovely stuff!
What are your plans with it? Considering the S2K is tail-happy even in stock form, I could predict this'll become either a track car or a drfit car :D

Also, gutted to see Strawberry going out from action for a while :(
And uh, just want to point out that the way you do the stickers on it reminds me of Nob Taniguchi's personal S15, which is a nice thing:

I was wondering who had shown up with that S2000 when we met with our drift cars at the docks! Nice new ride, wasn't cheap (as most of S2000's) but this one looks like new! Keep it clean yo. Also i hope you will get the S15 running again soon! :)
