A FRESH START

Henlo, my real name is Deniz but y'all know me as tyretear. I'm 26, I'm living in Japan since 2017. Nagano to be exact. I've been collecting money to get my hands on a project car for so long. I guess this is enough info about me. Let's take a look at my buy... :D



I've recently came across this r32 sedan on auctions. It was a grade 3 ECR32 with rb25de and GT-R front end convertion and taillights and it seems there was an intercooler so I assumed it was turbo and decided to put my money on it. I managed to get it for 7000 V$, which sure was a steal. Car also has a 1 month temporary registration and I'm going to have to registrate it soon.



I drove back to my home later that day and parked my car to its fresh new slot... So, naturally, I decided to inspect it a bit... Interior was completely stock, it had aftermarket GT-R badges on it, hood was actually a gtst hood that got cut.



Under the hood there was a stock looking rb25 with r33 manifold, r33 turbo and a huge intercooler which I still don't know where it is from. I think I can assume car is making 250 hp at crank...



... but under the chassis it wasnt that great, car had worn out bushings and cut spring and it was pretty much stock. I guess this is where I start from huh ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .

Thank you all for your responses :D . I think this is going to be a daily/drifter untill I get a second ride, I dont have exact future plans with it but things I gotta do are kinda obvious I think.



INTENSE WEEK IS INTENSE


As I said bushings were busted, car was feeling loose and wobbly while driving it, so I decided to start from drivetrain...



Before everything, as you can see I finally have a legit registiration for the car. :D

I decided to change bushings out, their solid aluminum counterparts was ready to install but when I removed the wheel for second time I realized shocks was leaking and there was oil all around it. So I decided to go Up garage that is literally 2 kms away from me and luckily I found a set of Apexi N1 coilovers. They are 8k on front and 6k on back. A bit understeery but I think it will suit for drifting.

I was also thinking to go for 5 lug convertion. I bought a set of z32 hubs but couldn't find any z32 brakes near me. I didn't want powerful brakes for this car becouse the would lock up easily so I couldn't go for something big like brembo or project mu. Therefore I just went balls to walls and bought a set of 326 Power brakes. I didn't go twin caliper setup on rear just yet becouse z32 hubs have drum brakes inside them which works as handbrake that works just fine for drifting.

Car is still on jacks and waiting for rims. I ordered them from internet and they should be here in like 1 or 2 days. Contact me if you want 4 lug brake convertion or steelies.

as I said I didn't want to go for something powerful like brembos, thanks anyway

NEW SHOES


As I said, I ordered some new wheels for Skyline like a week ago. They came yesterday morning and here they are.



These are 17x9.5 +15 CST Hyper Zeros with 225/35/R17 tyres wraped around them. I actually checked the fitment of wheel before so I could get it tight.



You might say I'm satisfied with result :D .



Later that day I had to visit inner Osaka, decided to take a photo through sunset. I really like this shot tbh...
