Bad news...



As, you're viewing my crib, this time no vehicle. Nothing inside my garage, just fill with my tools box, work beach, whatever car stuff also, personally used storage, so no car inside the garage. Excuse me about my manner, my name is Buzzsaw aka Buzz, they are my nickname, and no, not going tell my full username.

Anyway...

"What the fuck? Where your RPS13? We were looking forward to full of photos, like drag wing looking great."

Unfortunately, it was basically death-trap RPS13.
Long story about RPS13...

It was as an advertising ex-drifting training vehicle and restored to street vehicle. It was seen the very clean shell and bit worn interior. The wheels are using 5 hubs swapped to order fit R33 GTR wheels, and the brake system was using Z32 turbo to order better-stopping power because under the hood you would see top mount turbo CA18DET. I was going to taking photo after inspecting to order get the number plate, so that five days after I taking photo Burger King (aka on top).

I waited for the inspector phoned back to me, so two days later...

I'm fucking bummed out! They have given me a handful of failure notice paper. They said, "Your RPS13 is death-trap, we were shocked, and we NEVER have seen that condition before." They have been spotting poorly installing replaced the parts, and shit welding, like anywhere on the floor pan, and previous owner didn't fix front chassis damage. Turn out, RPS13 is worth as scrap. It like RPS13 is repaired by no experienced mechanic.

I have to try contacted previous owner but, he was blocked me. Guess, I got scammed for 5,000 V$ death-trap RPS13. I asked my friend advice and helping me about the scam problem, and the previous owner was acting so rude and given us poorly excused. I have no choice, but I have to contact the police. After, I sorted the polices about scams, I'm happy to let police takes RPS13 to police workshop for supporting the investigation and finding the evidence. Hopeful the court would be charge previous owner as guilty, right now I don't know and I'm waiting for the reply from the police.

"So, what you're doing so far, after police problems?"
I'm been just working and doing normal life, I'm still upsetting from losing RPS13, however, I found Frankie was selling his Toyota Altezza, and I'm currently speaking him. ;)

Also, still waiting from the police, but I will update about scam news when they are replied to me...
But hey, stay tuned for the new vehicle coming up!

(OORP: I'm so sorry about massive of delayed happening, caught personally busy and computer problem. Should be everything back normal.)

Let see how my wallet is doing.
Before money ~ 20,000 V$
Paycheck! (Every Monday!) ~ + 2 x 375 V$
RPS13 ~ - 5,000 V$
Burger Meal ~ - 15 V$
Total ~ 15,735 V$

at least let me check it i once rebuilt a supra from a 120+ mph crash on the shop and it was a piece of cake in two weeks a bashed s13 is going to be easy and honestly most of the police are based on exact oem specs when checking for rebuilt cars but these cars are from factory a little off and im a automotive engineer if its a scrap then scrap it goes

Well, the reason is my budget, the repairing all them the fault is a bit out of my budget, unfortunately, suspension need redo, the engine needs to check the condition, and it does need whole of floor pan replace, fix all crashed, and give interior love.

suspension, it is just a rebuild won't pass 500 with OEM parts, engine since it's going to be out for fixing the front frame a bearing check cylinder and compression test it's a 15-minute job floor pan i can source for arround 400 bucks as i said all the labor would be free after that you would have a nice base to rebuild it if not i can buy it for you

Damn, Maybe you can took out the good panels and parts, slap sone junkies on it, put a rollcage and repairing some shit and just drift it.
Repairing doesn't worth it if in the inspection they said you that is a death trap.
Also you can pick up an rolling chassi, swap the parts and the bad one, scrap it.

I don't reccomend you to sell that car, if in the inspection they told you that THE CAR IS A DEATH TRAP, isn't a good idea to sell it.
The best things that you can do are fixing it and after sell it, or missile it, or part it out.
But selling it as it is now, it's dangerous.
And fixing it, mmmm, for me isn't worth it, i would take out the good parts, put some junkies and missile that 180, or part it out completely and put those parts in a good s13, or just sell'em

Yea, I been thinking to part out. useless if someone is rich enough to redo whole of RPS13.

What are thooossseeee?!

Notice: This is mini updated. Mainly updated will be tomorrow.
Bought new wheels for Altezza, from the good of my friend mine.

While I was chilling outside of the cafe, with my cup of coffee, and my phone went ring, ring! I pick up the phone and answered it, it was my friend name Yachi.

B: Hey mate, what up?
Y: Nothing much, just boring garage cleaning...
B: Don't tell me, you are selling Work Emotion XT7?
Y: Sadly, I would be, next week.
B: Eh? I got the new car, s-
Y: Another one already?! You're hated RPS13?
B: *laugh* No, no, it currently at police workshop. Turn out I got scammed because that car is death-traps.
Y: Shit! That sucks, I would be punched to the seller, anyway what is the car?
B: Toyota Altezza with BEAM powered. Clean and perfect condition. It has inspected done and it's street legal.
Y: Speaking of, I could give you my Work Emotion XT7 deep version, with the tire. You know, they are barely used.
B: Sweet! I bet it looks great with Altezza, how much?
Y: Wheel is 18 inch and it should be perfect for Altezza, oh it 800 V$ with the tire.
B: I'm taking it, hold on. My boss just rang to me. It sounds like importation happening. Speak u later.
Y: Bye!

After the call is finish, and my workplace needs extra staff so I have to go there.
Yachi did send me the photo so here it is!


You could see, tires are fresh and wheel are barely using.

I bet it would look great with my Altezza. Stay tuned for wheel fitment tomorrow as the main update. :)

Spending for shoe, Mr.Wallet!

A piece of mixed news...



Good and bads news, happening...
Firstly, bad news...
1. 180sx is totaled, the police were discovered chassis ID is missing, and I haven't got original chassis ID paperwork. Yea, that sucks. One less 180SX on the road.
2. And Altezza, we got bumped each other, another driver is female driver, her car is Toyota model 7 seater with the tow bar fitted.
I was idle to waiting for the traffic light, and I see my traffic light was changed but her car did not move like 10 sec, and I honk a couple of time. Then, she was panic herself, and accidentally shifted to reverse and pressed the accelerator, and rammed into my front bumper. Funny is, the police were opposite of the road, police quickly arrived at the scene, and we sorted out recently happening. Police were sawed clearly, she was using the phone behind the steering wheel. She gets fined and pointed for driving without care and attention and using the phone while driving. My front bumper got destroyed because the tow bar gives enough to rip my bumper part off.

Good news!
1. I can claim to get money back from the seller of 180sx, so hopeful I received the money soon.
2. After I got an accident from silly women driver, I know there locally car spares shop, and they have the last bumper for Altezza, which is it white one came with flog light. The condition was pretty good, so I paid 100V$ plus fitted. I put front licensed plate more offset look, and it pretty looking nicely.

Currently, I am chilling with a friend at the tofu store, because I wanted to help her the business. Currently, she is planned to do delivery tofus to anyone near-by, and I may change my job because my working place kinda felt bit underpaid. Anyway, here is Altezza! I call her Snow Queen (BigSmoke, if you're reading this, don't sue me for using your Evo nickname lol). She, have fitted Work Emotion XT7, as you have seen the last mini updated. It came with wrapped freshly Yokohama Neova AD08 tires. The fitment fills up the wheel arch gap nicely, she just needs a set of coilover, then she will look better. Having more gripper tires than standard tires, I felt handle nice and tighter than before, just like a go-kart with BEAMS engine swapped. I was very impressed with wheel choice, she looks amazing with Work Emotion, I can felt they bolds each other perfectly an I am want to speak about Snow Queen condition, I was impressed enough, the shell is solid and very clean. The interior has cared very well, they are fairly cleaned and tidy. Thankful, the previous owner called Frankie, he did look after and maintained it before it going sold toward me. I'm 100% happy with this car.






Let see, how doing Mr.Wallet.
Before money ~ 14,935 V$
Altezza ~ - 5000 V$
Refund from Seller ~ PENDING
Helped for my friend ~ + 30 V%
Front bumper replacement ~ - 100 V$

Glad to hear you're not mad about nickname my Snow Queen. Def, mate she look suitable with XT7.

I know it came with BEAMS, that I bought Snow Queen. I'm sure Work Emotion XT7 would be fit most of a cars, and how much TEIN coilover would be? I was planned to fitted TEIN coilover.

Low n Slow, baby...
(OORP: Altezza was replaced to other modder, you may noticed different, and I forgot to add licensed plate.)



Woo! It paycheck day, I quit my job because it was underpaid business and joining my friend, her new tofu business, now I'm Tofu Delivery guy, I earn 470 V$ per Monday. Bunta would be happy. :))

I have TEIN Flex-Z coilover from Sleepy sent to me, quite quick the shipment then I was expecting it. Thanks, Sleepy for giving a good price for TEIN coilover, if you need TEIN coilover, give Sleepy message, he willing giving you a good discount. I want to affordable, and street/track set up because I don't have planned it or I don't have the experience, so grip set up is perfect. I'm thinking of Snow Queen as a street-legal track toy.

Why I choose grip set up, instead drift set up?
Like, I said I don't have the drifting experience, also street are wasn't design to drifting, and I want more grips, so Snow Queen can gripping around the corner, without suddenly losing grip or having tail-happy. Grip Coilover + Grip Tyres = Perfect.

I was removing all old struts, I was shocked enough because my rear spring was heavy corrosion, and front shock has slightly wept the oil. Glad, I replace it before the rear spring snapped, even worst is, the spring is snapped and damaged the tires. :O

I replaced all old strut to nice TEIN coilover, and I was very patiently to adjusting the setting as ride height, it should be about 35mm lower than factory height. Snow Queen has improved to the lower center of gravity, increased stability and improved grips, compared to the factory fitted strut. Fun fact: Old suspension parts likely softer than brand new suspensions part. I'm impressed with new coilover, give big shout out to Sleepy!



Next updated, it would be unlocking more power and dyno time! Time make BEAMS to roars. I was hoping to make around 250BHP mark, so wish me luck. :))
Here factory look engine bay before new power arrives. That may reason, I been a bit quiet lately.



Let see, how doing Mr.Wallet.

The Z, what?!

Remember, I got scammed 5k V$ for dodgy RPS13? Great news, I made recovered 5k V$, that I lost from scam.
I remember I was the kid age. I saw Nissan Skyline GTR, I love R32 to R34 model. Nissan Skyline R34 GTR Millenium Jade was my favourite of Skyline GTR model. Them sweet sound inline six 2.6 litre twin-turbocharger known as RB26DETT. I always wanted to own Skyline so badly.

My mind said, "Why not your 5,000 V$ from scam money, that you recovered it. You could start to buy a cheap car, repair it and sell for a nice profit."
I start to jump on the internet, and I start searching for the broken vehicle and I found this vehicle...






Yep, I bought Nissan 350Z 2007! It hasn't been modified since from new, it has only one owner, I am digging with this colour called "Daytona Blue". I don't know why what happens with wheel, it seen used from pre-facelift Z and painted to black, my best guess was previous use nice expensive wheels and he want to keep it and bought the basic wheel for 350Z. Under bonnet, you would see 3.5 V6 N/A, just simply add drift angle and bit more power and it easy to drifting, even it perfect for the user who doesn't like hurt S-Chassis, but I'm here for to repair this Z and sell for profit.

I paid this Z for only 1,000 V$, due head gasket suspected blown and garage can't repair it. They tries replaced the head gasket and some coolant system, but no luck to repair successfully, I give try to repair it at tomorrow, I was chilling at home...

I looking the paperwork, that previous owner give me folder, it has whole of bills paperwork and inspecting sheet. I was flipping the page, and I learnt something new...

From previous has been spending their money from last year till now;
1 - Brand new clutch with flywheel.
2 - Recently serviced.
3 - New Starter Motor.
4 - Back box replaced.
5 - Health Safety inspected - Replaced front discs and pads.
6 - New 4 sets of tyres.

I was amazed, this Z could sell 5,000 V$ easy if all repaired are right. Hopefully, I repaired successfully and make sure, I earn more profit. At evening, I was chill and watching youtube before I went sleep, youtuber call "Savage garage", his Mini has a problem similar as mine, his Mini have flooded Cylinder 1, and he was discovered the head block water jacket are damaged case allowing coolant enter Cylinder 1. I thought I should follow his way on my Z, if I got lucked to the found a new problem.

Oh, if you're thinking where Snow Queen is, she is currently at the body shop, can't wait to show you, when she is finished. I spending money so much on her, to get new power and new stylish. Stay tuned for Snow Queen, she should be ready 2 between 4 days.

((OORP: I got 2 wallets, one for main and another one will be used to buy and sell for profit.))
BUY + SELL WALLET:
Recovered scammed money ~ + 5,000 V$
350Z ~ - 1,000 V$
Total: 4,000 V$
