# MACKAY : Don't worry man, your Supra is definitely in good hands! I am going to take you with for the next Russian bound we are going to do later this year, so you will get to see it for sure. So forget about it and move on, especially with such amount of money that you got. Better things is coming, and we all know that ! :thumbsup:

I'm sure of that ! I can't wait to meet the guys , I bet they're super cool ! I already kinda forgot about it so yeah , I'm really happy with my current budget , but maybe it'll get even bigger soon , who knows ? Better things are coming for sure and we both know it ! ;)

What a weekend !



-✔ Oh man , once again , another weekend has passed and I can't tell you guys how much fun I had this weekend at Ebisu ! If you didn't already know , it was Drift Matsuri , and oh boy , it was pretty much drift heaven over there. I was really close to missing this whole event , but luckily , my boy Radcoon gave me a call and told me to get my ass over to Ebisu 'cuz the Summer Drift Matsuri is finally in full blast ! So , I did what Radcoon told me and I jumped in my R32 and off to Ebisu I went. I arrived on Saturday afternoon and there were lots of cars there , and I mean lots ! It was so fun just to walk around the pits and see all the cars there , but I said fuck it and I decided to take the R32 for a little spin on Minami , 'cuz why not ? The R32 is gonna go through some massive changes soon so I told myself that I should have some fun while the car is still somewhat driftable , and that's exactly what I did ! ✔-









-✔ When I first entered the track with the R32 I got weird looks from everyone , including Radcoon. I bet everyone thought that I was out of my mind when I decided to take such a clean R32 and just risk totaling it on the track , but I was confident in my skills and especially in the car , and after a lap of Minami I decided to not drift the R32 anymore because I was too afraid of killin' it , especially after I got really really close to the Minami wall , but I can't lie , it drifted kinda well ! Sure , the car had just a little bit of bodyroll , and I think the bolt-on cage managed to fix some of the body roll so that's good , I'm glad I kept it in , but after all , it's still on stock suspension and it was quite underpowered in the corners , but that was quite easy to fix with a few clutch kicks here and there haha ! The R32 did alright , I'm probably never gonna drift it again because you guys know , it's not gonna be a drift car , but still , it was super fun to toss it in the corners and just go flat out. The RB20DET is underpowered for drifting , but there's no point in making it stronger because I'll probably swap it with another RB in the future. So , after I got out of the R32 at the pits , Radcoon came running to my car and told me that he managed to find me a car that I could actually drift and just get some laps around Minami with , and I was pretty excited ! Turns out that he managed to make me drive a full-blown 1JZ Cresta Roulant G , and oh boy , it was so freaking fun to drive that thing ! It had so much power ! Radcoon and some other guys managed to take a few pictures of me drifting it , but I can't tell you guys how impressed I was after driving that Cresta ! I forgot how good it was to have a dedicated drift car dialed in just for sliding ! I can't quite remember how much power the Cresta had , but I think it had around 600 hp and I can't lie , that thing was so scary yet fun to drive ! ✔-









-✔ Haha , oh man , I really wish I could've brought the ER here , but oh well , I'm sure it's sliding somewhere else in Japan. The Cresta was really really clean which kinda made me hesitant to going hard on it , but the owner told me that it's all good if I have fun , so yeah , I had so much fun ! These kinds of experiences really bring me back to the old days. I can't lie , I missed drifting , it's such a cool hobby , but I still feel like I've grown out of it. Sometimes I'm just too scared to ruin my cars so that's another big factor that determined to stay away for a while from drifting. I'm still not sure if I'll go back to this hobby because my whole car taste has changed in these last couple of months , but maybe , just maybe , in the future I'll buy another shitcar just to mess around Ebisu. This weekend was amazing , it was probably the most fun I've had in a long long time , and a big thank you goes to Radcoon and his friends for having me there and just hanging out , I really enjoyed this weekend ! After we've had enough fun at Ebisu , I decided to take Radcoon back to Osaka to hang around with Mackay and just chill at a little BBQ , though I really wish Lagano was here too , then the whole gang would've been united ! I can't wait for the R's meet , it's gonna be such a crazy fun event ! I hope I'll see all of you guys there , but to be fair , why wouldn't you come to the meet ? It's pretty much gonna be heaven on earth , so yeah , it's gonna be absolutely sick ! ✔-





-✔ Talking about the R's meet , check out this amazing snapback Radcoon managed to get me ! It's so sick and it even has the oldschool Nismo logo on it ! I absolutely love it ! I swear , I'll wear this all the time from now on ! I don't usually wear snapbacks , but this one in particular really fits me ! Thank you so much Radcoon , you're the real homie ! If you guys want to get your hands on things like this , we're gonna sell them at our booth at the R's meet ! It's gonna be full of exclusive items like T-shirts , stickers , posters , even performance parts from the Performance Shop that you can only get from us directly , so I'd advise you guys to grab them if you're there ! I really feel like we're gonna run out of products really quick , so if you guys want to make yourselves look cool , that's your chance ! I can't wait to meet you all there and I can't wait to see all the R's ! Ahh , I can't wait ! ✔-





-✔ Well , I don't think anyone expected this but , yesterday , the time has come for the Z to leave. Why ? Because I just lost all my motivation to work on it. It was really fun making it look so sick , but it has been in the stand-by phase for so long that I just said screw it and just sold it. I know , I could've finished it , but I started to think that the Z32 really doesn't suit my style and instead of loosing precious time and money on it , I decided to pass it to someone that I think will take care of it and enjoy it to the maximum. The Z is definitely in good hands now , that's for sure , and I know for a fact that the new owner will absolutely love it and make it way more sicker than I did. So yeah , I'm not sad at all about the Z because I just kinda stopped caring about it , and it would've made more sense to get my money off of it than to keep it and just not drive it , so yeah , after a little bit of negotiation with the new owner , we've both agreed on the price of 20000 V$. I can say that this move filled my wallet quite a lot and I'm always happy to have more cash at hand so yeah , I can say that I made a profit off of it , which is perfect ! ✔-





-✔ After the deal was settled in , we went to the Wangan for a little fair race. Since the R33 pushes a lot of hp on max boost , I decided to turn the boost all the way down to make the race a little bit more fair , and I still mopped the floor with the Z32 , but it's understandable because the Z doesn't have any performance upgrades besides an Apexi Power FC ECU and some custom made straightpipes. It sounds super good that's for sure , but just seeing one of my cars be driven by another person is so weird , but hey , all things must go and I'm more than sure that the new owner will enjoy driving this car ! ✔-

-✔ Well , remember when I said that I'm always happy to have more money ? Haha , well , after the deal went down , I drove back home and straight up started searching for the car I wanted , and then I got a call from Mackay and he told me he found an amazing deal on a car that I should buy. Well , long story short , this morning I met up with the guy and pretty much bought my brand new ( and I mean new , not like new from the '90s ) car !!! ✔-

















-✔ Hahaha ! Fuck yeah ! It's an R35 baby ! I bet everyone expected me to buy an R34 but nah fam , ya' boy decided to go all out and buy a freaking 2009 Nissan R35 GTR Spec-V !!! I can finally proudly say that I own an actual supercar ! Mackay has been begging me to buy an R35 , and I decided to make his dream come true by buying this absolute monster ! So , the car is in absolute mint condition , it has a clean title and it's good as new. It's the 2009 version and it's a Spec-V , which means that it has a titanium exhaust , reworked suspension , carbon ceramic brakes and the overall weight is decreased by 132 lb (60 kg) over the standard GT-R. The Spec-V posted a 0–60 mph/0-100 km/h in a time of 3.20 seconds and it has a top speed of 315 km/h or 196 mph. This one is one out of 109 Spec-V GTRs produced for the entire world and one out of 77 produced for Japan. This thing is pretty much a race car for the street ! The R35 was never made in a manual transmission version as far as I'm concerned , but man , driving an automatic for the first time ever feels really cool and weird , I still feel like I have to shift , so that's why I prefer to use the paddle shifters all the time. This car is pretty much a computer on wheels as everyone says , but I think it's way more than that. It's all about the Skyline spirit ! This car is all stock besides the wheels , which are some Deep Dish BBS LM's. They make the car look so good ! This car is what I even wanted to be honest , even though I still want the R34 , the R35 is just something mindblowing ! Also , this version uses carbon fiber trim inside and out, and has no rear seat , so you know Nissan wanted to reduce the weight . It would've been cool to have a rear seat but oh well , weight reduction is everything ! So , you might ask yourself , why did I buy an R35 and not an R34 ? My answer to that is : "Because why the hell not ?!" I'm gonna use this car as a daily , but more as a track car , because that's the main reason behind me purchasing an R35. I wanted to buy something already made for racing , and what's better than an R35 ? Let's be serious for a second here , this thing is way cheaper than buying and building an R34 for track racing. Sure , that's maybe not 100% true , but this brings me to the price that I bought this thing for. I bought the R35 for... *insert drums roll sound effect here* 56000V$ !!! How the hell did I get a Spec-V this cheap ? Well , turns out that Mackay is a really good friend with the guy who sold me the R35 and he made me a big discount on it ! I'm so freaking grateful to Mackay for setting this deal up for me ! I'm so happy to finally own the R35 ! Now all I would need would be an R34 right ? Well , maybe , but that's in the long long future , because right now , I don't need an R34 ! Ahh , I'm still mindblown by the fact that I own this car... ✔-





-✔ The interior is really really clean and there's no signs of wear and tear anywhere ! I really like sitting in these bucket seats , they're amazingly comfy ! After all , this thing is a luxury car , right ? Hell yeah ! It doesn't have the back seat as I said , which is okay with me , but still , it would've been cool to be able to carry the whole crew in one car , but everything else compensates for that ! I'm still new to this kind of new age technology though , I've been buying and driving '90 cars for forever and now I finally own something more technologically advanced ! The push to start button is so cool though , just hearing the VR38 roar is music to my ears ! This car is pretty much perfect in every aspect , and I can say for sure , this thing is making it to the R's meeting , because after all , its a damn Spec-V ! Only 77 in Japan baby ! ✔-







-✔ After going nuts for about 2 hours I decided to take this thing outside for a little photoshoot in the sunset and man , the Silver on this car really fits it ! I love it ! The BBS wheels fit just fine and they look like they we're actually supposed to come with the car ! Ahh , I just can't get enough of it... This is by far the most expensive car I've ever bought , and once again , big thanks to Mackay for setting up that amazing deal for me ! This is a huge milestone for me , and I'm really happy that I'm so lucky to be surrounded by cars and my best friends all the time , this is the life that's worth living ! ✔-



-✔ And this day ended with a little Wangan top speed run with Mackay in the passenger seat. He was so happy to ride along with me , and just seeing him smile was the best thing ever , so I decide to let him drive me back home and oh boy , we were hauling the wangan. The VR38 is such a great engine with so much horsepower , ahh , this is why I'm a Nissan boy now , Nissan is the shit ! I still love every other JDM car brand out there , but it's crazy how Nissan are always true to their roots and keep making these awesome cars even today , but anyway , this has been the best purchase I've ever made... ✔-

-✔ So yeah , this week has been pretty crazy until now , but crazier things are coming in the next days as well , because I've just ordered the parts for the R32 and we're gonna get to work as soon as the parts arrive , so stay tuned in for that ! Ahh , everything is flowing nicely right now and I'm having the time of my life , big thanks to all my friends out there for always supporting and helping me ! So yeah , that'll be all for now ! I hope all of you guys enjoyed this update and I bet that no one expected the R35 to be my next car ! Anyways , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

So you finally got a GTR, my man. Now you're in the gang for real! Well it's not really a Skyline but it's still a GTR! And a V Spec!! That was a steal, maybe it was cheaper because it didn't have original wheels, well the LM's look even better anyway. All those electronics, that start/stop thingy, flappy paddles etc. are just not for me, this stuff is too modern lol. Nonetheless, it will be awesome to see it at the meeting! :D

Haha yeah I did. It's very different from what I originally wanted , which was the R34 , but I wanted to give it a shot after all , plus , the offer was really good so I just had to buy it. Maybe I'll own the R34 in the future as well . but we'll see about that when we get there. I'm still a little bit weirded out by how technologically advanced it is , but I'll get used to it I hope , either way , it's something different , right ? :P

I tell you guys, he's hyped af! We try to get some work done here and all I hear is that idling up R35!
Great purchase dude! Really really nice. Glad you guys fulfilled the R32 - R35 range now! Sad to see the Z go tbh. But if I would plan to get one of these I guess I'd let it go as well!

It was great to have you around at Ebisu. Glad you didn't kill your R32!

Haha , that's true ! I'm just crazy after the R35 , it's something that I never owned before , I'm like a little kid obsessing over his Hot Wheels cars ! The Z had to go sadly , but as you can see , I got something better now and that's what matters !

Yeah , I had so much fun with you man ! It was amazing ! I'm glad I didn't put it into the wall as well lol !

Well , maybe , but that's in the long long future , because right now , I don't need an R34 ! Ahh , I'm still mindblown by the fact that I own this car... ✔-





-✔ The interior is really really clean and there's no signs of wear and tear anywhere ! I really like sitting in these bucket seats , they're amazingly comfy ! After all , this thing is a luxury car , right ? Hell yeah ! It doesn't have the back seat as I said , which is okay with me , but still , it would've been cool to be able to carry the whole crew in one car , but everything else compensates for that ! I'm still new to this kind of new age technology though , I've been buying and driving '90 cars for forever and now I finally own something more technologically advanced ! The push to start button is so cool though , just hearing the VR38 roar is music to my ears ! This car is pretty much perfect in every aspect , and I can say for sure , this thing is making it to the R's meeting , because after all , its a damn Spec-V ! Only 77 in Japan baby ! ✔-







-✔ After going nuts for about 2 hours I decided to take this thing outside for a little photoshoot in the sunset and man , the Silver on this car really fits it ! I love it ! The BBS wheels fit just fine and they look like they we're actually supposed to come with the car ! Ahh , I just can't get enough of it... This is by far the most expensive car I've ever bought , and once again , big thanks to Mackay for setting up that amazing deal for me ! This is a huge milestone for me , and I'm really happy that I'm so lucky to be surrounded by cars and my best friends all the time , this is the life that's worth living ! ✔-



-✔ And this day ended with a little Wangan top speed run with Mackay in the passenger seat. He was so happy to ride along with me , and just seeing him smile was the best thing ever , so I decide to let him drive me back home and oh boy , we were hauling the wangan. The VR38 is such a great engine with so much horsepower , ahh , this is why I'm a Nissan boy now , Nissan is the shit ! I still love every other JDM car brand out there , but it's crazy how Nissan are always true to their roots and keep making these awesome cars even today , but anyway , this has been the best purchase I've ever made... ✔-

-✔ So yeah , this week has been pretty crazy until now , but crazier things are coming in the next days as well , because I've just ordered the parts for the R32 and we're gonna get to work as soon as the parts arrive , so stay tuned in for that ! Ahh , everything is flowing nicely right now and I'm having the time of my life , big thanks to all my friends out there for always supporting and helping me ! So yeah , that'll be all for now ! I hope all of you guys enjoyed this update and I bet that no one expected the R35 to be my next car ! Anyways , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

Smooth Criminal...



-✔ Hey guys ! What's up ? It's finally time for another one of these updates ! So , as you know , it's finally Friday and it's 24th of August , and I really hope you know what's gonna happen tomorrow , but in case you have no idea what I'm talking about , the Ride Of The Month of August is closing for submissions and voting will take place. I have no clue when the voting will happen , but I really hope it's gonna be soon. I can't wait to see who you guys vote for , hopefully it's gonna be me who wins , but I've got some serious competition ! I'm talking about Lagano , RocketBunnyS13 and Niatross. Their cars are super good looking , but may the best looking car win ! Either way , let's just move on to the update ! ✔-



-✔ Ahh , the good ol' R32... Well , I can proudly say that it went through some massive changes in these last couple of days. The parts that I ordered finally arrived and man oh man , they're looking fresh. So , the R32 is still bone stock when it comes to the engine , suspension and brakes. Well , long story short I decided to change that and I ordered a full Endo CVT kit from AccuAir Suspension. If you have no clue what an Endo CVT is , well , it's pretty much a all-in-one Compressor , Valve and Airtank for you bags. What makes the Endo CVT is the fact that it's incredibly quiet , and that's because everything that needs to make the bags work is integrated in one single unit and thus , it's so quiet that you can't even hear the compressor working. One thing that I hate is to have loud noises besides engine sounds while I drive , and I made sure to invest and buy an Endo CVT system for the requirements that I need. The system is located in the trunk of the car , and what's really funny is that you can't even hear when it's working. This will for sure increase the comfort levels of the car. So , moving on to the suspension I bought for the car , I bought a kit of AirLift Suspension. I haven't had any issues when installing it and I really recommend them. They work really well in combination with the AccuAir system and they perform and feel just like coilovers , and I'm not kidding. They're really stiff and can absorb the bumps in the road like a champ. I really don't know why everyone says that coils perform better than bags , because they feel exactly the same , the bags absorb the bumps better , and when you air the bags out , you've pretty much got a slammed car ! It's just amazing ! Either way , I'd suggest you look at the pictures below because they show the old fitment with the stock suspension and wheels ! ✔-









-✔ I can't tell you guys how much of a difference some better suspension makes to a car ! Bags both enhance the look , make the car feel better , and they perform way better than stock suspension. I have no clue why you would go static when you can just buy and install some bags. We all know how hard it is to park your can on a steep driveway when your car is static , but with bags , you have nothing , and I mean nothing to fear of. Heck , if your suspension has a lot of travel , you can just fill your bags and turn your car into a rally car ! Well , not really , but still , if you're planning to go on a quite bumpy road , you can do that just fine with bags. Most show cars use bags and the R32 is no exception. I'm building this thing to be pretty much a daily showcar so these bags are just perfect for me. I know , an R32 GTST as a showcar ? Well , yeah ! Why not ? I've wanted to build a showcar since the very beginning and now I can finally put some work into the R32. So , anyway , the pics below will show the cars new look with the bags installed and with the brand new wheels. There's also gonna 2 pictures that show the stance of the car when it's aired out vs driving height. ✔-















-✔ Haha , well , as you can see , that's pretty much how the car's fitment looks when it's aired out. And yes , I decided to go with a really cool wheel setup for this build. The wheels are 18" HRE 301 rims shipped straight out of the US and they're brand new , of course. With some stretched tyres on the rims , I managed to acquire this amazing fitment up in the front and the rear. I must say , the rear is absolutely amazing , and I think I'm now a part of the "camber gang" or whatever the cool kids call it these days. So yeah , fitment's "on fleek" and I'm really happy with it ! The tyres don't rub anywhere and the look of the car is just killer ! Ahh , and being able to change your height in real time is absolutely amazing as well , I've never experienced something like that. I can say that when the car is aired out , you can really feel like you're almost touching the ground and I love it. Right now , I'm trying to get the car ready for the R's meet , which is coming up really fast now and man , I really hope all my cars will turn the heads of car fanatics over there. ✔-





-✔ To enhance the look of the R32 , I decided to look for an R32 GTR wing , and I found one ! Luckily , it came off of an white R32 GTR , so the paint matches really well , but I'm not gonna keep the car white for any longer , and in fact , tomorrow , the R32 is leaving for paint , so you can expect a reveal on Monday next week. The wing looks really really good and finally the rear end of the R32 doesn't look so "bald and empty". I really felt like the rear of this thing looked kinda bad without a wing , but now , I've successfully solved that issue. Anyway , there's many other plans that I have for this car , but I won't tell you guys everything , because I would ruin the surprise , right ? Well yeah ! So , after installing the wing and making sure the bags are working correctly , I took out the R32 out of the garage for some sick sunrise shots. I hope you like them ! ✔-





-✔ Ahh man , the sunrise in the dock area is always so nice... No wonder Japan is called "The land of the rising sun" ! This thing is gonna radically change in the next few days because of the R's meet , and thinking about the R's meet reminds me that I should also prep up my R35 as well ! That car is so sick , I can't tell you guys how ... I dunno ... "unholy" it feels ! It's full of technology and I love it ! I also have to take the R35 for a little track day soon , which will be at the R's meet ! I'm more than sure that the organisers of the meet will hold a little race or something on the Fuji Speedway , so that's gonna be the perfect time to test out what the R35 can really do on the track ! Anyway , some things also changed on the R35 , so let's move on to that ! ✔-





-✔ I don't know if it's too visible , but if you have good memory you'll realise that I've changed the tyres on the wheels. The old tyres which were Yokohama S'Drive tyres were giving the car too much of a "monstertruck" look , so I decided to go with some stretched tyres to get an overall better look. I've also got my license plate for the R35 , so that means that I can finally drive the car as a daily and not have to worry that I'll get pulled over by cops. So yeah , the R35 looks much better now , but there's something that throws me off on this car. It's the color. It's like a Silver Gray color , and I really dunno what to say about it ! It definitely looks really good , but I think I might change the color of this thing in the future , to get a more unique look , and actually , heck , I'll send this thing to paint tomorrow as well along with the R32 , I already have the color in mind so I'll just call the paint shop owner after I'm done writing this update. Anyway , it's gonna be another reveal on Monday. Keep your eyes on the forum on Monday , because you'll be surprised by the colors of the R32 and R35 ! ✔-



-✔ After I've put the BBS with fresh tyres on the R35 , I decided to go drive it for a bit , just to celebrate that the R35 finally has a license plate. It's so fun flooring this thing on the Wangan ! The VR38 screams and makes really nice noises , that's for sure. I'm not gonna change anything performance wise in this car , because why would I ? It's already a really good and fast car ( even though it got it's ass kicked by a freaking S15... ). It feels great and the interior , ahh , I feel like I've said this too much by now , the interior is so comfy ! The bucket seats are really nice and the trim inside looks really good , though I wished this thing was manual , it would've been just crazy ! But yeah , I'm really happy that I own a V-spec R35 now , it's the dream car of many car enthusiasts and it was once my dream car as well , and looks like I own one now haha ! Also , huge thank you to my friends who pretty much supported me through my career and life , it's just crazy how cars can unite people and make life long friendships ! ✔-







-✔ After I've hooned around the Wangan for a while , I decided to go back to the shop and just chill for the rest of the evening , but then Mackay asked me if we could race my R33 vs the R35 , and I said yes straight away. He drove the R35 and I drove the R33 and man oh man ! I can't believe I'm saying this but even the R33 kicks the R35's ass ! Well , to be fair , the R35 is heavier and weaker , but I still can't believe how a car from '94 can kick a brand new car's ass ! The funny thing is that I've built the R33 for less money than I bought the R35 , and I'm 100% not afraid to say this , but maybe after all the R35 wasn't worth it ! xD But yeah , the difference in comfort from the R35 to the R33 is pretty much like day and night , you just can't compare the two. I'm more of a "built not bought" guy myself so I can't lie to you guys , I would've rather bought an R34 and built it to be an absolute beast , but at the end of the day , if I ever want to sell the R35 , I can easily do it. I'm not saying I will , but just in case something bad happens , I can get around 3 times the money I bought the R35 back , and if you do a little bit of math... 56000V$ x 3 .... yeah , you get the point , I could pretty much be a wealthy ass mofo if I wanted to ! xDDD Ahh , anyways , I really don't like to brag about my possessions or money , because I'm not that type of guy , but you always gotta appreciate the new cars as well , after all , the R35 is still a GTR and in my heart , it's still a Skyline , even if some people may say it's not a Skyline ( which it actually isn't , because Nissan dropped that name from the R35 ) , it still belongs to the GTR family , along side with all the other generations of the Skyline. ✔-



-✔ Well , everything ends with a casual Wangan cruise at night in the R32. Oh man , that car feels and looks so good , I love it ! But yeah , really cool things are coming soon so make sure you check my thread when I upload. I promise you , you're gonna like what you see and I'm more than sure that you'll come back to see more awesome cars , so yeah , that'll be all for now , not many things have happened but I had fun in these past few days for sure ! So yeah , I'll see you guys next time and take it easy , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-



Added 3 minutes later:

# S-Chassi Lover : Yeah , i will go to japan soon , i have to sort out some things, like repainting my 240 , finish another 240 that i got, sell both cars , some little shit and i will go to there!

I simply think Mackay, didn't go full throttle in your R35. But of course the R33 has the power/ weight advantage. How does it feel to own a 100kV$ car that got ass kicked twice? :D

For the R32..... Bags..... srsly? First... go static because it's a commitment to the style. Second.... bags..... Next up RB - Kit? Nah I'm just teasing you. Well still don't like air rides but well. Wheels look good tho. Interesting to see where this goes.

Cheers

That's possible too , and yeah , I'm starting to believe there's no point to expensive cars anymore when you can just make a cheaper car even better for less money. :D Ehh , I dunno , I'll keep it around for a while until I get bored of it , but one thing is certain , its 100% making it to the R's meet !

Haha , well I could go static too , I'm just afraid of destroying my front bumper ! Ahh , I'm not gonna lie , a little bit of widebody wouldn't look too bad , I'd actually enjoy having a widebody car , but hey , maybe it's gonna happen , or maybe not ! Who knows ? The wheels are indeed really cool ! I really like them ! Big things are coming for this car , so yeah , I really wanna make it perfect in every way so I currently don't know how far the build is going , but it's definitely going to be unique and really cool when it's finished.

Change of plans...



-✔ Alright , it's finally Monday again so that means another update. So , I can say that a lot of things happened this weekend , and I also decided to change my plans and head into a completely different direction , but I'll talk more about that later. So , I've finally picked the R32 up from the paintshop because as you know , I decided to give it a little recolor because I didn't really like the look of white on in , and yeah , I've also bought some more parts for the R32 as well , so let's move to that already , shall we ? ✔-









-✔ So , right off the bat you can see 2 things. One of them would be that the car is now in the Gun Metal Grey color , which is a GTR color , of course ! And the second thing would be the new hood and fenders. Well yeah , I decided to go with a vented Nismo styled hood , not because the engine needs cooling , but because it makes the car look better , and the new fenders are some fenders from UpGarage that I found for really cheap. I picked them up because they were wider than the stock ones , and that means that I can put some spacers and bring the front wheels out a bit more , right ? Well yeah , that's exactly what I did. I went for the Gun Metal Grey because it reminded me of Lagano's R32. I just thought the car would look better in a darker color so yeah , here it is. I decided to switch from the GTST hood because it didn't look really good to me , and putting this Nismo one on was really easy to do. No modifications were needed and it just makes the car look better. It's just so funny to me that when I air out the bags , the car sits so low that the front bumper touches the ground. I really hope I won't destroy it , but yeah , this car is amazingly low when its aired out. The HRE rims look amazing and I really love them ! They make the car look quite good I'd say ! So now , let's move to the rear ! ✔-







-✔ The rear looks pretty good as well and I think the GTR wing really makes this car's rear look good ! I'm really happy with how the rear looks now. Ahh man , it's just crazy how much camber I'm getting when I'm aired out and the fitment is just insane. I really like it ! The HRE wheels sure look good on stanced cars , though I think they would've looked better if they had a deeper dish in the rear , but still , they look pretty good ! I never thought I would build a "showcar" , even though I don't think it's worthy of that name yet , the R32 is definitely not something that I would build all the time. It's definitely way different from all the other cars around and I could say that is pretty good ! Either way , the R32 is pretty close to being finished and that's quite good. Exterior wise , the car is just how I like it and yeah , it's a very comfy car to daily ! The bags are working exactly like they should and the car is really comfortable and fun to drive. It's just crazy that about a week ago I was at Ebisu sliding this car. To me , the R32 changed radically , and that's a good thing , but it pretty much reached the point where it's just perfect for what I use it , so yeah , it's all good. Anyway , let's move to the main subject of this update...✔-







-✔ Ahh yes , the R35. Well , some things got switched this weekend. First off , the R35 ended up not getting repainted , but I have a good reason for that. In the last couple of days I've figured out that buying this thing was not worth it at all. Sure , it's really comfy and technologically advanced , but that's not what I'm into after all. This car lacked the power I wanted , and it's overall not worth it , even if it's a V-spec. It's big and heavy , the engine isn't quite what I wanted and it started to feel like a toy to me. I really started feeling bored and I just lost my interest in this car. Modifying such an expensive car is of course , expensive , and to be fair , I don't have the money to own and constantly modify an R35. I really feel like this car just lacks personality , and the overall spirit of this car is just not existent. Sure , it's really fun to floor it and hear the VR38 scream , but this is not what I wanted. I expected more from this car , but it seems that after all , it's just not for me. I've asked the owner if he'd like to buy it back and gladly he said yes , so he got his car back , I got my money back and I pretty much owned an R35 for a couple of days. But I can't lie , the R35 is fun only when you first start driving it , but otherwise , it's just not worth buying it. I've sold it because I started having money problems and this was the car that had to leave , and luckily , I've somehow managed to own an R35 for free. It was fun , but once again , it's not what I wanted. And that's pretty much what determined to move on and do what I actually like , which is building street beasts. I'm a "built not bought" guy so just buying an R35 doesn't make sense to me anymore , but still , I'm really glad that me and my friends got to experience a more different car , but after all , the R35 got it's ass kicked by an R33 and S15 , both running engines with over 650 hp , so yeah , I just said screw this thing and gave it back to the owner , and I can't lie , I'm glad I got rid of the R35 , it just wasn't for me. ✔-





-✔ So , let me explain why I wanted my money back. Well , me , Mackay and Radcoon started a racing team , named Icon Motorsports , and I wanted to make sure that I can put the money necessary towards the team and making our car into the beast that we all want. So , With my current money , I'm pretty good. I have no clue what my next car is gonna be , but one thing is for certain , I will take a break from my shenanigans and put my time into working on the team car , because after all , we gotta build a Time Attack/Hillclimb car , and that takes a lot of time , money and effort. For our team car we went with a super cheap S15 that we found and we're gonna make it into a absolute beast , and man oh man I can't wait to see how she turns out , it's definitely going to be fun to build a Time Attack car with crazy aero , because after all , that's what I always wanted ! I always wanted to be a part of a racing team and here I am ! Ahh , I'm just so happy that my dreams are coming true ! If you guys want , you can check out our team over at this *LINK* It's definitely going to be fun to build a car and travel all around Japan to events so yeah , I'm really happy that I'm a part of this team and I'll try my very best to be as efficient as possible. ✔-



-✔ So yeah , that would be it. Sorry if this update isn't what you expected and sorry that it's quite short , but I promise better updates are coming soon. Everything just happened so fast this weekend and I'd say that I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out in the end. The R35 is back to it's previous owner , all the money is back in my pocket , I've also managed to get rid of all the useless old parts from the other cars and yeah , it's all good now. Stay tuned in for the next updates and make sure you check out our team , everything is gonna turn out very sick , I know it ! But yeah , that would be it for now , I'll see you all in the next update , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

Lost & Found



-✔ Ahh ... where do I even begin ? So after non-stop thinking and going through all the ideas that came in my mind , I've finally managed to figure out what my next move will be. I was quite confused in these past few days about what my next move will be but thanks to Mackay because he pretty much told me to get my shit straight and really helped me find my true calling and now , I've got a pretty solid plan. Everything kinda changed in my point of view and now I can proudly say that everything is gonna change towards the better. I've finally managed to find my own style and the true inner car enthusiast inside of me. I'm really glad I managed to work everything out and once again , big thanks to Mackay for helping me out. So , let's move to the first subject. ✔-





-✔ Alright , lets talk about the R32 for a bit. So , I'm not gonna lie but after figuring out my true style of tuning , I've found out that the R32 is not , and I mean absolutely not what I expected it to be. Sure , it looks good and all , but the way I tuned the R32 just isn't my style anymore and I would even say that it doesn't suit me. It's a pretty cool car , but after all , it's just not what I imagined it to turn out. The overall styling of the R32 is pretty neat , but I really don't think it belongs to me , so yeah , I just can't keep owning this car like this so I decided to just sell it. Someone is actually pretty interested in the R32 , and I'm currently waiting for his answer , but this thing will be gone real soon , which will hopefully be in the next couple of days so yeah , I just don't know anymore. I think I was just lost in all that hype that I had a while back when I bought the R32 and to be quite honest , buying this thing was the second worst mistake I've ever done. So , yeah. I'm getting rid of it , it just doesn't suit my style anymore and it just doesn't represent my passion for building cars , and I can't lie , it's the most different thing I've ever done and I'm somehow just a little bit glad I checked out that side of tuning , but I just can't have a car that you can describe with the words : "All show , no go". So , overall , the R32 was a dumb idea , but at least I got to have fun with my first R32 , right ? I think so. ✔-





-✔ Ahh , the R33. I just love everything about this car , and to be quite honest , I'm probably never gonna sell it. It's just the most beastly car I've ever owned and I can proudly say that it's exactly what I wanted it to be . The R33 is pretty much the perfect daily/street car for me. It doesn't lack any power , it handles really well and it's really comfy , and it's exactly what I like about cars. It's so simple and fun , and I would take a '90s JDM car over any sort of new car on any day of the week. I'd even go as far as saying that this is the car that actually started everything for me , and I know , the Supra was first , but this is the car on which I actually got to modify absolutely everything and make it a lot better. It's still crazy how it's able to put all the 666 horses to the ground without any problems and keep in mind that it's rwd so yeah , it could've been stronger and even faster , but as a first beast , this thing is perfect , and I'm definitely going to have fun with it until the day I die. What more can I say ? It's been built by pretty much the best guys out here in Osaka and Tokyo , so yeah. It's pretty much my gem and most definitely the most perfect car I've ever built. I don't know if I'll find a replacement for this thing , but one thing is for sure , I'm just happy to own it ! Though , I do want to build something even more extreme in the future , but not right now. I feel like there's so much more I can learn and experience about cars , so when I'll have all the knowledge and money I need , I'm most definitely gonna build something even grater , but until then , a lot of things are gonna happen. ✔-

-✔ So , now that I got the other cars out of the way , the main subject of this update will finally be shown to you guys. I've thought a lot about this and I'm not gonna lie , but this right here is the best deal I've done in a while , so yeah , thanks to Mackay for pretty much showing me what I really wanted and needed , so here it is. ✔-







-✔ Well , well , well... isn't this Mackay's R33 ? Well , I guess you could call it that , but now it's mine. I never really thought that I'll own another R33 , but here I am ! I've always loved the R33s , and I decided to accept Mackay's offer and get a genuine Skyline GTR this time. So , it is a 1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec in very good condition, everything is mostly OEM, only few things under the hood as air filters and R18' BBS LM's have been changed. Don't expect much from this thing because it'll be my daily driver and I'll keep it as it is for a while. I will also use it as a little track toy from time to time , but it's definitely going to get some small mods. I have no clue what I'll do to it just yet , but this thing is 100% going to stay as clean and nice as possible. I really don't wanna go crazy with it , so yeah. Even though my other R33 is a completely street driven car and I can daily it without problems I decided that it would be better to have "normal" daily car and keep the other 33' as my pride and joy. Damn , this thing looks so good , and it'll be even better after a few small touches ! ✔-



-✔ The interior is absolutely stock and so damn clean and I love that so much ! I'm 100% sure I'll keep it as it is , but what really impressed me was how damn clean and well maintained the car is overall ! It's unbelievable. Mackay sure knows how to take care of a car and he did an amazing job with this one. Having such a clean GTR has been my dream since I was a little kid and here I am ! Even though I've owned an R35 before , I can't lie , I would take an R33 over the R35 on any day of my life. This right here is what I call truly JDM , and ahh... I'm speechless. So yeah , this car is definitely a game changer for me and I'm so glad Mackay asked me if I was interested in it ! Thanks for the offer and the deal bro ! ✔-

-✔ So yeah , I finally managed to get myself a car worthy for the R's meeting , and I'm not saying that the other R33 isn't , but hey , it's not a GTR , is it ? I've always been looking at the R33 in the garage in my lunch break and oh boy , finally owning it is just crazy ! I will not ruin this car , I promised Mackay that I won't do crazy things to it , but as you guys know , completely overhauling and transforming cars isn't my thing anymore. I think most cars , especially JDM ones look the best in OEM form and that's exactly the case for this car. It's so crazy to put the GTST and GTR next to eachother and see how completely different they are , but yeah , this GTR is definitely going to hang around for a lot of time. It my first real Skyline GTR as I said and I'm not gonna lie , I would've never thought I'll own a R33 GTR , and it's a V-spec as well , so that makes it even better ! Ahh , I just can't believe it ! So now , everything is gonna turn out amazing. Mackay owns the R34 GTR , I own the R33 GTR and Lagano owns the R32 GTR... We're pretty much the Skyline dream team now ! The R's meeting is coming closer and closer and I just can't wait ! Having our cars and our booth there is gonna be so cool , and of course , seeing all the GTRs is also going to be amazing. ✔-

-✔ So yeah , that'll be all for now. I'm really glad I managed to sort everything out and just get my shit together , and big thanks to Mackay for helping me find my true self ! So as I said , big things are coming and the game has completely changed , so yeah , I'm quite happy for what's to come and I hope you guys are too ! Anyway , I'll see all you guys around , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

Moving forward...


-✔ What's up guys ? So , it's time for another update , but this one will be shorter because not much really happened in these past few days , but , today is the last day of summer because it's 31th of August ! Ahh , this summer my life got turned around and to be honest , I'm really happy to be right here doing what I love , but anyway , the ROTM voting has finally ended and man oh man , I couldn't be more happier with the result. The man , the myth , the legend , Mackay won this ROTM. As I said , I couldn't be happier with the result , after all , I voted for him ! In my opinion , he 100% deserved that win , his GTR is just amazing and a lot of time and effort has gone into that awesome livery of his. It's just amazing that his GTR got better than before , and oh boy , I cannot tell you how extreme his GTR is ! That thing is an absolute beast on the inside and a beauty on the outside. To me , it's pretty much the perfect car ! I'm also really glad that he qualified for the ROTY ! I really hope that I'll win a ROTM in the future , but we'll see. But anyway , let's move on to some other stuff. ✔-





-✔ I've been daily driving the GTR in these past days and oh boy , a stock GTR is definitely something unique ! I love it ! As I said before , I never would've thought I'll own another R33 , but how could I refuse Mackay's offer ? I'm definitely crazy after R33s now and I couldn't be more happier that I bought the GTR. It's definitely way different from the GTST , but still , they're similar yet different if that makes sense. It doesn't lack any power , it handles amazingly and its so fun to drive ! Right now , I can't tell you guys what's coming for the GTR , because I don't even know , but one thing is for certain , it's gonna be as clean and good looking. I can't wait for the R's meet , it's gonna be so cool to go around and see what other people did with their R's , and it's gonna be a great place to get some inspiration ! I think I'll even take the GTR for a spin on the Fuji Speedway , just to see how it performs on the track and to have some fun ! But yeah , overall , driving a stock GTR is so fun ! I sometimes wonder why I didn't get a GTR sooner , but now that I have one I feel like I've been missing so much ! ✔-





-✔ And here are the last 2 pictures of the R32 , because it's gone now. That guy that was interested in buying it finally pulled the trigger and bought it so yeah , I'm really glad I got that thing off my hands and as I said before , I'm not sad at all for selling it , after all , it turned out into something way different than I had in mind , so yeah , the money is now in my wallet and I'm pretty satisfied with the money I got off of the R32. I'll definitely have to get another R32 in the future , because I feel like I didn't build this one like I should've , but no more GTSTs and crap like that , the next R32 will be a GTR so yeah , but for now , I'm gonna stay away from spending money like a mad man. After all , something really cool is coming up soon so stay tuned in for that ! It's definitely going to be something unexpected and different so yeah , I just gotta look deeper for some deals and maybe I'll get myself something cool ! ✔-



-✔ So yeah guys , that'll be all for now ! As I said , this update is really short , and it's probably the shortest update I've done , but not many things have happened in the past days so yeah , but something big is coming up so make sure you check it out ! I'm really glad I managed to make a profit from the R32 and right now , I have just 2 cars and both of them are R33s ! How cool is that ? Haha but anyway , that's it for now , I'll see you all around , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

Getting rid of the R32? Already? hm...

Still sure it was a good choice to get the R33. Looking sick! Maybe lower it :)

Yep , I just felt like I had to get rid of it , but it's okay , better things are coming ! ;)

For sure ! I love the GTR , it's just amazing when it comes to daily driving ! I guess I could lower it , but I've got some cooler plans for it... :D

Blast from the past...


-✔ Well well well ... It's time for another update , isn't it ? Well , I guess so ! So , first of all , I'd like to apologize for not posting so far this week , but a lot of things have happened and I can proudly say that everything turned out exactly like it was supposed to. Anyway , the R's meet is getting closer and closer and oh boy I'm excited ! I can't wait to see the whole crew in one place and this is definitely gonna be the coolest meet ever. I'm really glad I managed to own 2 show-worthy cars before the show , and I couldn't have been more proud of them. I'm gonna take both of my R's to the meet , so if you want to see the beasts , just visit our booth , we will have tons of cool stuff , like exclusive merch made by us and lots of other cool things , so if you want to get some cool swag , you know where to come ! ✔-









-✔ So , because the R's meet is getting closer I decided to give the GTR a small little custom touch for 2 reasons. One of them would be the overall looks and the second one would be downforce. The diffuser you're seeing in the rear is custom made by me , and yes , it's my first ever aero piece that I've made without any help. So , as you can see , I painted it black to bring the theme from the front splitter which is also black to the rear , and I'd say that it came out pretty good ! Even though the design is very simplistic , it's doing exactly what I want it to do , which is mainly to look good and to provide a tiny bit of downforce. Feel free to tell me if I should either keep it on or if I should go with a carbon fiber diffuser , after all , the custom diffuser is made out of aluminium , but I think it's good enough for now. I can't tell you guys what the next thing for the GTR is , because I don't even know , but still , the mods are gonna be as minimalistic as possible to give the car that clean and untouched look , so if you enjoy that kind of mods , stay tuned in for that ! ✔-









-✔ Ahh , the GTST. I started to feel bad that I haven't changed a thing in the last month or something like that , so I decided to change some things up. So , before we get into it , remember the ER34 I had a while ago ? Man I loved that thing ! The thing I liked the most about it was the fact that it had bucket seats in the rear , and oh man , I'm more than sure that everyone loved that , so I decided to take some inspiration from the ER and do the same thing to the GTST. As you can see , the rear seat is now gone and it has been replaced by 2 more Bride bucket seats with Takata seatbelts , and oh man , I love it ! It's just a little bit hard to squeeze between the front 2 bucket seats , but once you're in the back , it's a completely different experience. I will finally be able to pick up the whole crew and be way more safer thanks to the bucket seats in the rear ! I feel like I should've done this a long time ago , and voila , it has finally been done. The safety for the rear passengers has of course increased thanks to the Takata seatbelts and I'm really glad the passengers in the rear will now be safer ! It's gonna be so fun to cruise on the wangan with all of my friends in the GTST ! ✔-

-✔ And now it's the time to reveal the main attraction of this update ! Well , this has been a secret for around 2-3 weeks and absolutely no one knew about this , but thanks to Lagano , everything worked out perfectly. So , let me fill you guys in with what I'm talking about. Alright so , I ended up buying a car from across the ocean , to be more specific , from the US. So , I got myself a 1970 Datsun 240Z. Once again basically the same story as the Supra , it is just a rolling shell with few other bits, oh and stock L24 engine obviously completely dead as expected. The only good thing is that the car is practically rust free as it was in California it's whole life, also all windows are in one piece too haha. Here is the pictures the seller sent me. Judging the condition from the pictures, decision was made to send the money and "buy" it straight away. ✔-











-✔ So , here's some info about this car. It's a 1970 Datsun 240Z with a clean title , it's completely bone stock , the L24 engine is currently not in working condition , the tyres are popped , and the chassis is clean from rust , because as I said , this thing sat in California it's whole life. Speaking of time , this thing hasn't moved in 38 years to be exact and it only had one owner up until now. The car also came with some wheels that I don't recognize and of course , they're 4 lug wheels , which brings me to the subject of the hubs. The hubs have , of course , 4 studs because back then , that's what every car had , and man I'm so lucky to have this thing completely bone stock , so yeah , I will be able to fit some 4 lug wheels which will make the car even more JDM. So , another thing is that the car is so damn dirty , it's full of dust and sand everywhere , and that's why the paint looks so bad. Underneath the dirty layer of dust and sand is the original color which is the Kilimanjaro White. I can't wait to give this car a nice little wash and see if the paint is still recoverable , but I doubt it is. This car will have to get repainted anyway , but man , I can't wait to get to work on it. ✔-



-✔ So , the car has the black interior which is quite in good shape. The seats are thankfully in great condition without any rips or anything , but I think I will have to take the whole interior apart , because as you know , this thing was in California it's whole life , so it's bound to have at least a kilogram of sand in the interior haha ! I dunno if I'll keep this color of interior , but it sure does look good after all of those years , and as I said , it hasn't moved since the 1980s , so yeah , 38 years of standing still. A lot of stuff are gonna happen to this car , but don't worry , it's gonna be a long process so you guys can enjoy every second of it. ✔-





-✔ So , you may ask what my plans are for this thing , well , it's gonna be the exact same thing as the Supra , but 100 times better done. I want to completely restore this thing and I'm not afraid of saying this , but this project might take around half a year or so , plus , I won't work on this thing all the time , after all , I have to work for the team and manage my life too , so it's definitely going to take a long while to completely restore the Z , but heck , even if this takes years , I'll still do it because this is exactly what I wanted and I'm gonna do it 100% alone , because this is my first real project and I want to be the one who restores this thing , but still , Mackay will probably help me here and there ! Talking about Mackay , isn't a coincidence that Mackay bought his 240Z exactly a year ago ? haha , I think it is ! So yeah , I just felt like I had to finally buy my oldest dream car and here it is ! All of this wouldn't have been possible without Lagano , huge thanks to him for going out of his way to make sure everything goes according to plan and for settling everything so I can get this car ! Lagano , as a reward for helping me , I promise you that you're gonna have the time of your life in Japan , so yeah , I can't wait to see you bro ! And yeah , I'm excited to get working on this thing , but this is gonna be the biggest side-project ever. As I said , rebuilding this thing isn't my number 1 priority right now , but I'll make sure to work on it in my free time. Thinking about it , Mackay's 240Z was from 1972 , so my 240Z might be the oldest car that ever entered Mackay's workshop and I'm more than happy to say that I own it ! ✔-



-✔ So yeah , here are my reasons for not uploading for a while. I'm really happy everything turned out perfect and once again , big thanks to Lagano for going all the way in California to get this thing and shipping it over ! I can't express how hyped I was when 2 days ago he called me and told me the Z arrived at the docks ! So yeah , I will make a promise right now to you guys , this is the best , the most detailed and the coolest car I will ever build up until now. I know none of you expected this , but hey , it's something different from what I usually do so yeah , sometimes you just gotta flip the page , if you know what I mean ! It's gonna be a heck of a project , because literary everything will have to be rebuild on this car , from the interior all the way to the brakes , suspension , engine , exterior... pretty much everything and oh man , I'm ready ! I wanted to do this for so long and I finally managed to do it ! Ahh , this is gonna be great ! ✔-

-✔ Haha so yeah , that'll be all for now ! The next update should come out after I come back from the R's meet , though I really don't know how everything is gonna happen , the weather in Japan has gone to shit , and I'm more than sure that the typhoon made this happen. Bridges collapsed , wind is lifting up kei cars , it's pretty much a disaster , so stay safe out there and take care of yourselves ! But anyway , that's it for now and yeah , I hope you guys enjoyed this update , because I did and that would be pretty much it , godspeed homies ! ✔-

# Lagano: You don't need the rear seats in it though, i'd like to see someone get in the back with those bucket seats in the front lol.
Oh my god... Erwin, you dumbass! xD When i wrote this i meant that it will be difficult to get in the back cause you know, those bucket seats are not reclinable lol. I mean, look at your R33, there's like no legroom at all in the back! No way i'll fit in there. :)) Well never mind that, i guess it looks cool! And you're welcome for that 240Z, glad that you remembered just when i got to Cali so i could make the deal. :)

Ahh c'mon man , the leg room is just fine , I checked it , though I guess I dunno how you'll fit back there , cuz after all I got skinny legs but oh well , we'll have to put Radcoon and Mackay in the back then ! :)) But yeah , one thing is for sure , they look good !

Also , thanks man ! I couldn't have done it without you , so yeah , huge kudos to you man ! ;)

Bucket seats in the back.... hm. Looks good tbh. But was nice while backdating MACKAY's ER34 in your R33 might be a bit tight :)

Congrats on the Self made aero piece. :pathead: Suits your GT-R very well.

The Z. Sick move. Will it be blue ;) I do love classic JDM's so that is great!

Haha thanks ! It does look good , but you'll fit in just fine , don't worry !

Thank you ! It came out better than I expected !

Haha I know ! I love the 240Z , and thinking about it , it's probably my favorite Z out of all the other generations ! Haha , you'll have to find out ! JDM classics are the best , and this one is gonna be absolutely amazing , that is 100% for sure ! ;)

-✔ Alright... After 2 weeks of absence I decided to come back and let y'all know that I haven't died. Actually I don't even know where to start because there been so many things in those days. Some things got sold, some things got bought and a whole lot of things have been started, but I will explain everything down below. All I can tell you guys is that I was really busy in these past 2 weeks , and some things have changed. Strap yourselves in , I've got some explaining to do. ✔-





-✔ Well , I guess I'll start with the GTST. I can't tell you how much I love it , I've owned it for around 3 months now and it's the first car that I've completely overhauled and turned into a monster. I'll never forget the first drive with this car after I've finished building the engine. It was unreal... Ahh , my first ever monster... I'll never forget this car , but I'm afraid to tell you that the GTST is gone. Because I've stopped modifying it a while ago , I started to feel like I've finally finished my first car. I know that a car is never truly finished , but in my case , I turned it into exactly in what I wanted to. The goal for the GTST was to make it an all-rounder car , and it was more than that. It's truly an amazing experience to drive this car , but y'know , I got used to it and I felt like my experience with it started to feel stale , so after a lot of thinking , I finally decided to pass it to someone else. Someone that can truly appreciate the car for what it is and maybe even take it further , so yeah , that's the end of my first beast. I couldn't have done it without my boys at the shop , the jack of all trades , Mackay and of course , the one and only , Radcoon the artist behind the wonderful wrap. We all turned that ordinary blue GTST into an absolute beast that can break necks on the Wangan. I'll remember this car for as long as my mind lets me , but one thing that I'll never forget will be the moment I passed the 300 km/h mark. My highest top speed with the GTST was 322 km/h and man , it's truly an amazing experience. I'm more than happy that I've trusted my life in this car , and I'm more than sure the next owner will love it as much as I do. I'm insanely grateful to Mackay , Radcoon and my other friends for helping and supporting me. I wouldn't be here if Mackay didn't take me under his wing , and I'm forever grateful towards him , so yeah , big thanks to everyone that supported and helped me ! ✔-



-✔ The last drive in the GTST was ... well... emotional. I loved every second of it and I'll never forget it. Just the way this car grips the road and accelerates so fast is just amazing , and yeah... I had to take Mackay with me too. I'm sure he loved this thing almost as much as I did. I'm gonna miss doing wangan runs in the middle of the night with Mack... The GTST gave me quite some awesome memories that I'll never forget , and I'm truly happy that I've owned this car. I'll never forget you... Thirty-threes for life ! ✔-





-✔ As for the GTR , well , it's as clean as ever. I haven't even thought of my next mod for it , and to be quite honest , I love it just like it is , bone stock. Y'know , in my opinion , in a world full of tuners , it's important to keep at least one car you own as clean and untouched as possible. For example , the GTR is the perfect daily car for me. It's really really nice to drive and use as a daily car and it has the power exactly when you need it. The way everything flows together perfectly is exactly what I like. From now on , these beauties will get rarer and rarer , and I'm not gonna lie , but this is the car that I'll keep as stock as possible for as long as possible. I know , I could have some fun , maybe build an engine and reach crazy top speeds , but I recently saw a video about how some Japanese tuners keep their cars stock to keep the spirit of the car alive. Having a stock car is the best representation of the spirit of the car , and when it comes to GTRs , I'm an absolute purist. This being my first ever TRUE Skyline GTR , I feel like I must keep it the way it is , because as I said , they will get rarer and rarer and there's gonna be a time when bone stock R33 GTRs are gonna become absolute unicorns. So yeah , as I said , I'll do small mods to it , but I want to keep the spirit of my first ever GTR alive , and that's what I'll do , because I love it just the way it is... ✔-





-✔ And well , I decided to take a step further and do something for the better. I decided to rent a little garage for myself , because I was getting too dependent of Mackay's shop and I started to feel guilty for throwing all my stuff around Mackay's workplace , so yeah. I started renting this garage for 3 reasons , one would be that I need to store my cars , another one would be that I need some personal space just for me where I can hang out and work on my own cars by myself , and the third reason would be that I somehow keep collecting more and more cars ( more on that later ). This place is quite cheap to rent and it can easily store around 2 cars , but if you really know how to park in tight spaces , it can fit even three cars. Sure , that wouldn't be too practical , but still. So yeah , I already started moving my things in , which also brings me to the subject that Mackay gave me some old tools he had laying around the storage of the shop , so yeah , huge thanks Mack ! I really appreciate it ! Now I can work on my cars with the right equipment that I need ! ✔-







-✔ Talking about moving in , as you can see , the Z is already in there. It was tricky to get it there because I had to put it up on a trailer in order to move it , but in the end , I managed to do it. So yeah , in these 2 weeks I haven't even touched it , and oh man , I need to give it a wash asap. It's horribly dirty , but ehh , it's the long term project , so I have all the time in the world to work on it. I don't wanna rush it either , plus , I don't even really know what I wanna do with it just yet , but it'll take some time until it becomes drivable on the roads and raceable on the tracks. I definitely have high hopes for this car because it's gonna be fully restored , and because I moved in my own garage , I'll do it all by myself , which is gonna be even better for my experience. Tearing it down to the chassis is gonna be tedious , but I'll learn not only the components of the car better , but I'll know how to put them back , after all , this is a really old car , so obviously , everything is not as advanced as it is now. It will definitely be fun to tear everything apart and put it all back together , and I can't wait to do it , but still , I don't want to rush too much , I have all the time in the world and I got some other things to do as well , so yeah , it's gonna take a while , but I'll get there eventually. ✔-





-✔ So now that you guys know about my new personal garage , it's time to show you this. You may ask yourself : "Did you really buy an S14 ?" and my answer to that is absolutely not. Just let me explain everything. So , 2 weeks ago I got contacted by an old friend from the US that I've talked to a lot in the past years , before I made my little escapade over here in Japan. So pretty much what happened is that Richard , a really really good friend of mine who is also the owner of this S14 , offered me a little/huge job. Because he doesn't have the tools or the knowledge to completely overhaul his S14 , he decided to send it over in Japan to me , so I can build it for him. I guess I could say that I've gained quite a lot of knowledge over here in Japan , and to be quite honest , my dream is to own a shop , just like Mackay , and this could be the start of that. I accepted Richard's offer and a week ago this wonderful Kouki showed up at the docks. Currently it's poorly running with a really troublesome SR20 , and trust me , there's so much stuff to be done to this thing. Don't worry , I asked Rich if I can document the build of his S14 over here and he was more than happy to say yes. That way , I can produce more content by showing you guys what I do and how I do , and Rich can fully see what's happening so that way , everything will go smooth. His plans for this car are pretty big , and it's gonna take quite a while , which is exactly what I want. The downside of this whole thing is that I'll have to work on the Kouki in my free time , and now that I have my own personal space , I can do it ! I'm really happy that I'm somewhat on my way to start my dream , which is to own my own shop , build cars , modify cars and repair cars for other people ! At this point I might as well say that I wanna be Mackay ! But anyway , the Kouki is gonna be a long project , lots of things are gonna have to be done to that S14 because it's in terrible shape when it comes to driving and running in general , so me and Rich will discuss our plans and ideas soon so that way , we'll know in what direction the build is going. This is going to be an awesome experience for both me , Rich and all of you guys , so yeah , I'm on my way to achieving my dream ! ✔-

-✔ So now only one thing remains to be revealed. It was a tough decision , but after lots and lots of hours of thinking and talking with 11K and Mackay , they somehow managed to make me get this... ✔-





-✔ Yep , that's right , I bought my first European car ! That's my brand new BMW E36 318is. ✔-

-✔ So yeah , I decided to join the E36 gang and I pulled the trigger on this wonderful thing. As you know , it's an 318is. I know , it's just an 318 , but for what I'll be doing to it , it won't matter in the end. I found this E36 on goo-net for just around 6000 V$ , to be more precise , 5981 V$. It's pretty much dirt cheap , and I said why not ? I really like Mackay's brand new E36 so I decided to join the gang with Mackay and 11k and build one hell of a car for myself. As you already know , it's my first European car and oh man , it's different. I've always loved BMWs though , and from what I know , BMW really runs in my family back at home ! This is quite a big step for me and I'm so happy that I bought it. It's definitely going to be something different , which is exactly what I wanted , so yeah , it's gonna be one hell of a project car ! ✔-



-✔ Some more details on this car would be that it has a 1.8L engine. Anyway , it won't matter in the end , but still , I'll have some fun with it. This E36 is also from 1998 which is quite new ! I really like that ! It also has around 125.000 km on the odometer , which is pretty decent I'd say. It's definitely a lot more than my other cars , but hey , at least it looks phenomenal right now ! It's LHD which is actually considered a luxury over here in Japan , so that gives me some cool points haha ! It has a manual transmission which is good , and it has never been into a crash before , so the chassis is perfectly straight and everything is exactly how it should be ! So yeah , I bought it for the cheap price of 5981 V$ which is really really cheap and I couldn't be happier with it ! The car runs amazingly smooth too , so that's a major plus , it also means that I'll be able to use it as a daily if I really wanted to , but I already have plans for it , so I don't think it'll reach the daily car stage with this engine hahaha ! It's pretty much gonna be my main project besides the job I have to do for Rich ( the Kouki ) so yeah , the E36 will distract me from the Z for a while which is good , because I don't want to rush that car anyways so yeah , it's gonna be sick ! I can definitely tell you that the E36 is gonna be one hell of a car , so get ready for some unique updates regarding this car ! ✔-





-✔ So yeah , that's is why I left for 2 weeks. So many things have happened and oh man , these 2 weeks were tough , but in the end , it was so worth it ! I'm really happy how everything turned out ! I'm still sad that I've left the GTST go , but it was for the better , and the new garage is really going to help me out ! I'm also really glad Rich offered me that job ! It could be the start of my dream , and now that I own an E36 , I can proudly say that I've done the best decision I've done in a while ! Ohh , and before I forget , another reason why I was absent in these 2 weeks was the fact that I've spent a lot of time on the team S15 ! We are going to get it ready soon , but we've still have a lot to go ! I can't wait to see it drive ! It's gonna be such a crazy car... So yeah , hopefully everything will run smooth in the future as well , but we'll see what the future brings me ! It's definitely going to be hard to keep up with work , with Rich's Kouki and my E36 , but I'll find a way to do them all at once , so it's all gonna be good ! Anyway , it's really late now and I should head to bed because if I don't , I'll end up sleeping all day so yeah , tomorrow I'm gonna sit back and relax as much as I can , so that means that I'll be active on Vs ! Make sure to drop a comment to tell me what you think of this update ! Did you miss me ? Haha , but anyways , I'll see you guys around , godspeed homies ! ;) ✔-

Haha yeah , sometimes you just gotta keep it low-key if you know what I'm sayin'. I'm happy to be in the E36 family now , and don't you worry ! I'm not gonna ruin it , hell , I don't even know when I'll get it done , all the work I have to do is kinda getting to me , but I like it ! I do have some ideas that will definitely turn my E36 into an absolute beauty , so we're just gonna have to wait ! It's definitely going to be worth it , so yeah , I can't wait to get working on it ! Thanks for the good luck man , I'm gonna need it ! The S14 will go through some major changes in the upcoming months , so yeah , all you need to know is that the S14 is going to be an absolute beast once I'm done with it ! It's gonna take a while , but I'm gonna get it done some day ! Haha , you know I'm all in on the team bro , our S15 is getting better and better everyday , and I can't wait to see it done ! Also , that brings me to the fact that I haven't seen Radcoon in a while , I wonder what he's up to... But yeah , I'm all in on the team , thats for sure ! It's gonna be really fun to work on all these different cars at the same time , but ahh man , my free time keeps getting lesser , same with my sleep , but hey , I'm doing what I love the most and that matters the most to me , so y'know , I'm gonna keep on workin' my ass off , it's definitely going to pay off !

Ahh thanks bro , it means so much to me ! ♥
