I like how the R33 looks! Great job!
I have edited the post, and it was 500 because i searched for a full respray in my country and it was smth like 500.
Thanks bro! It really wasn't a hard choice, this colour. But i figured out that for a daily, I don't want a flashy colour, or a complex livery. Just wanted...... a daily
1. No, we don't have a Discord server iirc but we do have an FB group. Just scroll down and click the FB logo on the right to get there (the left one is the FB page). Keep in mind that the discussions aren't just limited to SLRR, there are quite a lot of Forza, NFS, GTAO and MTA players as well. And of course, not everyone does roleplays-stallion- wrote: ↑08 Dec 2019 19:23Tonight i'm pretty bored, and wanted to ask all you guys some questions. Some are RP, and some are real-life related.1. Does the VStanced community have a Discord Server, or another type of communication, besides the chat?
2. I'm gonna buy 2 more parts for my daily, and next year (yeah, you heard me, next year) i'm gonna do my best and buy anotherproject car. And the question is, what project car should I go for? I don't really want a unique one, but i still don't want the most used one.
3. What are your guys' source of mods, besides VStanced and the archives?
Wow, I didn't expect THAT big of an explanation, and that accurate, you really know what to do, and hiw to help people!! This "guide" helps me a lot in finding what I need, I'll look more on Mikawa, and I'll make sure and contact them. A hour worth of driving is not much at all, compared to the trip to Utsunomiya, but Nikko circuit for a first experience was so worth it! Thank you!BigSmoke wrote: ↑17 Jan 2020 08:19Well of course I would recommend you to not drift in busy streets and parking lots! That's why people run to the mountain passes instead to race and drift along. Not only there's less traffic, there's also less police presence as well. So if you need some fix of street drifting, better run to the mountains.
The only problem would be I don't know any touge routes around Okazaki, since I (and most of us) live near Tokyo or around Kanagawa prefecture, where there are some famous touge routes outside the city, e.g. Hakone Touge routes (Ohiradai, Nanamagari, Mt. Taikan, you name it), Tsukuba Fruits Line (near where I live), Yabitsu Touge and Ohtarumi Touge. And even though I've got some running hours and experience at the Tsukuba Fruits Line, I still recommend you to stay away from public roads and go to a proper circuit instead.
Seeing as you live somewhere around Okazaki, a quick google search reveals that Mikawa Motorland (download the mod here), the homebase of Team A-Bo-Moon and their slammed R32 drift cars, is relatively close to your place, only requires an hour of driving. Just like Team Burst/Pink Style at Meihan or Team Orange & Powervehicles at Ebisu, they're absolutely welcoming everyone with everything to drift along with them. Sometimes there's also time attack session as well, but it's much less popular and sought for compared to their drift sessions, just like the one at Ebisu or Nikko. I don't think you'll be interested in time attack racing anyways.
There's another one as well, but it's not very known well for drifting, though D1GP used to held a round there. Rather, this is one of the home of Japanese motorsport culture aside from Fuji Speedway. If you haven't figured it out already, it's the home of Japanese Grand Prix, Suzuka Circuit.
It looks like both Nikko and Tsukuba woud require a loooong drive indeed, for around 4-6 hours in one go. Ebisu is even worse, clocking at 8 hours for one-way trip. So unless it's the time for Ebisu Drift Matsuri or you intend to either go to the hot springs (there are also some around Nikko iirc) or sleep at the circuit's hall (it's free! Scroll to the bottom of the page at the hotels & travel section), you can take them all off the routine list in the meantime.
Right, I guess I've talked too much about the track, so let's move to the car. You've made a great progress on the 180, and a decent parts selection as well. All it needs is to be match-painted and it'll look better. As for the livery.........I'm not sure, it's not only D1GP cars that features grandiose, complex liveries, but a lot of grassroots teams does as well. I mean look at Haruguchi and Hert's FC, the aformentioned Team Burst and A-Bo-Moon cars, Tec-Arts cars, probably Yashio Factory cars, Animal Style cars, etc. etc. etc.........But there are some that you might want to take a peek at, such as Auto Factory Realize and Garage Moon Power cars.
I'd say even one or two simple 2000ish stripes like the one you see in FnF series or UG2 would be enough if you want to be period-correct, or simply stick up some stickers like Initial D teams (and which is what I did to my Evo and X110). If you want to do it properly though, I'd say look at @NotPerfect's E36, @Niatross's S14 and R33, @Lagano's AE86 or @RocketBunnyS13's S15. Their cars are grassroot cars with liveries, and one of the most well-done around here.
As for the seats, I use Bride Zeta III in my Evo, which is both a daily car and a racecar as you might already know, and it's comfy enough for me. If you don't want a fixed bucket seats in fear of painful back and spine, you can always get either Bride Gias or Bride Brix.
Researching always helps in cases like this.

Thanks a lot, buddy! I'm a sort of newbie too, but got the hang of drifting because of my 'homemade very low budget simulator' that I've played a lot on.
I really like the hotboi look on sedans, maybe that's a good choice, but I'll see what my budget says lol.
Ahh yes, it is sick. With the Oettinger 'package' as well, it's double the fun really
Ohh Smoke, good to see you man! Isn't that the almighty Hyundai Drift Bus over there? BTW, that Amarok looks sick!BigSmoke wrote: ↑29 Jan 2020 06:24Hey that's a nice Amarok your boss got there. Fun fact: VW Australia and their apprentice mechanics once raced an Amarok in World Time Attack Challenge, and they did relatively well, being faster than a stock GTI Mk7 wth not a lot of any modifications And that's not the only utility vehicle being raced for time attack purpose either. Last year it was Hyundai Australia's turn to show up at WTAC, and aside from their in-house tuned i30, they also brought a heavily modified iMax van to not only compete in the main time attack competition, but also in the supporting drift tournament. Somehow, that thing went faster than......an RX-7 FD!I'm glad to see you having fun at your first days of working, and you've made some nice amount of money as well. Every single penny helps when you're in the early stages of tuning your car so keep it up Your friend definitely has a fine taste on cars as well, I love ER34 sedans
I am waiting for offers for the car. What can I mainly say about is that the throttle body may need replacement, because the throtlle response is kind of weird and slow at the same time. The only MAJOR thing it needs is a repaint/livery, but it can work with a kind of missile look.
