Thanks for all the comments and kind words :)

Recently I was thinking about acquiring a new ride because I was missing all the drifting scenes and eventually I really wanted one so bad.

Since I had a pretty tight budget and a very hard choice upon picking RWD cars, I came up with something everyone would have thought about - R33 GTS-T.

Image

It wasn't that easy to source a perfectly unmolested (sorta) example within the hometown, which basically explains the side effect of import bans ongoing.

Well but I could find one eventually, not entirely stock at the first glance, but reasonable. A bit of price to pay but the perfect investment to build a decent grass-roots drifter.

I didn't even realize this one still retains its original two-tone paint whereas most of R33s here are at least repainted more than twice.

Image

It's the early 'zenki' version of GTS-T, basically dubbed as 'Series 1' among enthusiasts. It's missing its iconic 5 spoke wheels, which is now a Z32 stockies. Didn't expect that.

All the bulbs work, no problems to the glass, no issues so far.

I picked this for V$ 10000 and I assume it will be a great blank page to start with.

Image

Typical Z32 stockies wrapped in generic Dunlop tires. Basically this thing was driven by either a picky OEM+ nerd or boomer who brought this thing over when he/she retired.

Without it, I cannot justify the condition of this car.

Anyways, it is fairly well-maintained overall, with no visible flaws so far as I mentioned before.

Image

Probably the mileage is the one thing I worry about. It's been over 25 years old since this was released, and I hear some noises but that doesn't really bother me since most of the components will be replaced or refurbished.

It's showing about 100K km to the odometer, not bad for its lifespan! And lack of driver airbags do really tell how old this thing is.

As a small gift, I put my old cup holder to the air vent :)

Image

Unlike the yellow R34, this 'project car' will serve its purpose very well!

Ahoy mate sail the R33 sideways at full speed will ya? :lol:

Boat jokes aside, that's relatively one pristine example! Can't wait to see what you gonna do with it ;)

The R33 project seems going well I think, so I decided to make more progress.

I think it was a really good timing to cop some goodies from local community this week.

Image

As you can see, it's been significantly lowered by a new sets of TEIN Super Drift Coilovers for V$ 1500.

With the new poly bushings (dry rotted rubbers are the worst) and all the dirts and gunks were cleaned.

Also I got the used set of AVS6s for V$ 400, pretty pricey for its condition, but it was not bent or damaged in any ways.

Looks fairly yellowed out and lots of scuff marks (guessing it was heavily abused by a previous owner) has to be gone.

It came with 80% new BFgoodrich sport tires, I think it'll grip it nicely when I practice drifting with this car.

Image

The rear trunk was jammed so I had to fix it with Mr. Lee and 11K. Having an old car has been always a trickery.

Image

Now the car sits nicely and doesn't "float like a boat" when I try to steer abruptly. Pretty big improvement I guarantee!

Hey that's still a nice deal for these wheels! I'm quite sure fresh AVS6s are much more expensive, so buying them used is always the way to go :D

Thanks for all the comments! I got some nice stickers when I was in Japan and put it on my rear side windows.

Probably it'll make this car gain more hp by sticking some stuff on the windows ;)

Image

I've had few random drift sessions from small local circuit (which 11K supervised me) for some more drift practices.

I knew how to do it but I still needed to learn how to create clean lines and smooth transitions.

Image

I've owned several S13/S14 chassis before, but the RWD HCR33 gives me much more satisfaction. Not a popular choice for a drift car, but hey it works.

I have to really clean the wheels or even plan to take the whole paint off and repaint it. The gray ones looked pretty nice IMO.

Image

I started to practice and the RB25DET produced more than enough power to slide through the corners. Maybe too much for me!

Image

Even the OEM LSDs didn't help much, I always spun out and making huge mess overall. But still, a perfect time to learn how R33 chassis is!

Image

I might have to do a whole under side renovation to make this a proper drift machine. Stock components are pretty toast by now!
