What's up boys and girls. I just got back from the U.S, and my new car just came in last night. It is a 1991 MR2, having almost 291K miles, the engine runs like crap, and it needs new tires. But hey, it's a MR2, and I picked it up for only V$1,500. Can't say no to that. I have some clever ideas, but sadly, I have to sell the Ford Ka. It was a nice car, but if I am going to get in the actual Japanese racing scene, I can't be driving a Ford Ka. It is for sale, so If anyone wants it, you can have it for the price or best offer. Check out the used car forum, and you will see it. But, I hope that everyone is fine with that, and we will come together and have fun!

If you paint that MR2 blue and then you performed the famous Irohazaka jump off a mountain then I swear I'm gonna eat my shoes with extra dip, cheese topping and a large soda on the side
Joking aside, don't do that, I want your MR2 and my intestines stay intact :lol: Anyways nice purchase, and obviously a better car than the Ka! :D MR2 is a great entry point to experience proper motorsport scenes, be it on the legal side or um, illegal side. Like y'know, street racing. I prefer on the legal side obviously. Back to the car, it's quite a potential base for just about everything, from autocross, gymkhana, rallying, time attack, or even endurance racing as proven by SARD back then at Le Mans 24 Hours (even though it's not so successful).

It's also quite a demanding car to drive in, as you can find by all those massive snap oversteer jokes and memes surrounding the MR2, but it does give you a chance to learn about car control. If you can tame those snap oversteer tendencies, I'm sure you can tame pretty much everything, even an F1 car :lol:

As for the Ka, unless you really need money that badly, I'd say just keep it for something else. Spare track car, sleeper daily, kanjozoku fighter as I mentioned back then, a rally car, an autocross or gymkhana racer..........the possibilities is quite wide if you open your eyes wider ;)

Hey guys and gals, what's up. I just got the rollcage in this morning, and installed it about 2 hours ago. Took the thing out, and it feels really light, now that I took out all the seats except the driver one. Yesterday, I repainted the Ford Ka a really nice black. While I was out, I got a call, a guy that goes by the name anonymous. He said that he could give me a new set of rims and tires, but there was one issue. The tires were illegal on the streets, since they were only used on race cars. So, I told him don't worry about it, that I'll take it. Got them for about V$440 for the set.

Friday, the lancer got new mods in from one of my buddies. Gave them to me for free, since he didn't need them anymore. It is now setting on new rims, tires, and a Greddy Type-S suspension kit. That was a total of V$1500. That Saturday, I took the car out for a ride.

Sadly tho, the cops showed up, so we got out of there real fast. Cops couldn't keep up since I took an alleyway through Akiharba. But the good news is is that I got my lancer tuned. The turbo is about 19psi since I upped the stock turbo.

And for the Ford Ka, it is now running on racing methanol, but it only has about mid 200s HP. Overall, it has been an exciting week and weekend. I earned about V$5,000 for helping out my boss Thursday on his new Ferrari Enzo. Finally, I am thinking about starting a racing team. Something like BlackPhantomRides. Yea, I'll stick with that. Anyway, hope you all have a good week!

*Small Update*
Yo, what's up everyone. So... I have came up with an idea. I am officially starting my own racing team, called the BlackPhantoms. I got a logo created by a friend of mine, so full credits go to him. Anyway, nothing new with my cars yet. I'm going out to drive with a guy that I met, we're going from Osaka to Mt. Akina Sunday, so that should be fun. Finally, I am getting called out. Some guy is coming down here in a few days, and he wants to race me for pinks. The person who sets the fastest time out of 3 drag runs wins the other's car. I heard he drives an old school monte carlo, running some sort of GM motor, maybe a tuned 427 maybe. He hasn't givin me any info about the car, other than it is a monte carlo. If anyone has any ideas on how to set the fastest time, let me know. Oh, and by the way, He wants to race my Ford Ka. He says that if he wins, he is going to blow it up, since it is a so called "Piece of junk." Let me know if you guys have any smart ideas on how to set the fastest time.

Just created a team called BlackPhantom.
Here is the logo:

Anyways..... Let's get into what happened over the weekend.

Hey guys and gals, what's up. Someone got a hold of me and said that they were going to sell a Skyline R33GTST for around V$12K. Is it an impulse buy, yes it is. @Buzzsaw I would like to thank you for selling me the R33. Anyway.... Let me tell you what happened on Friday.
*Friday*
So I was looking around on car sites to see what I wanted. Sadly, I didn't have enough money to buy those cars. So, I decided to sell on of my cars. No, it isn't the Ford Ka, but it is the Lancer Evo X replica. It was a nice car indeed, with a new time attack bodykit on it, but there was a slight issue. It was trying to steer left a little at high speeds. It scared me enough to say that this car needed to go. So, I put it on an auction site with a few pictures. The auction lasted till Sunday at 5:30 PM.
*Saturday*
I checked on the website, and it was already up to V$9,500. I know it wasn't going to sell much, since it was only a replica, but at that money, it at least made me happy that some people wanted the car. Nothing really happened that day, since I had to take care of my friend's daughter while he was gone.
*Sunday*
Around the 5:30 PM mark, I checked the auction site, and when I saw the price, it made me tear up. The car sold for around V$11K. I loved this car very much, but the tears were made of joy, since the guy who bought it was one of my coworkers. He must've saw this car and knew how much I loved it. When the guy came over to pick up his daughter, he saw tears going down my face. He knew right away that the car sold, since I kept him up to date. He said that I hope that someday I will get a nice car that will make me as happy as this car did. At that moment, I got a text from Buzzsaw. He said that he was getting ready to sell his R33GTST for around V$12K. I was thinking that maybe this could be the car. This car, could be a car that no one will expect seeing. This car, will be the key to get me into the Japan Racing scene. So, I texted him back and said that I will take it. Impulse buy? Probably. But hey, my 1st skyline is coming. Hopefully.
Anyway... I wanted to thank you all for reading this. So, here is the last pictures that I took of the Lancer Evo X Replica, with a time attack bodykit.

Yes indeed. It is very sad to see that lancer go. But, the skyline is a very nice car indeed. I have a feeling this car is going to be a sleeper on the drift track, or I could make this a Tureno nightmare. I just got the car a couple of hours ago, so I am going to get a feel of this car, so I will let you all know sometime.

@D1NK0_1 Um... Interesting. I see that you have an air filter sticking out. Is there something that you want me to do with the Lada?

So... After what just happened on this forum... Let's get back together and let me tell you what happened today.

*Today.... 8:30 AM*

I haven't drove my Ford for a few days, so I decided to take in for a spin. I got into my Ford Ka and I happened to hear something wrong with the engine. So, being the stupid me, I hit the gas to see if it would fix it, and I heard something go boom. The engine still run, but my car would go forward anymore. So, I called up my buddy to see if he will pick my car up and see what is wrong with it. He said yes, and he picked up the Ford.

12:30 PM.....

There is a little something that I hid from all of you guys for quite a while. Remember my MR2? Well.... I turned over the car 2 days ago, and nothing. Checked the oil in the engine, and there were little pieces of metal in the oil. I wasn't very happy at all. So, I started to look around in my garage. What I found is something that no one would expect. A Honda K series engine that somehow works with a RWD car. So, I shoved it into the engine bay and it fits. I also swapped out all of the suspension pieces and replaced it with a Greddy Type-R, with Wilwood brakes. 280 in the front, and 315 in the rear. Finally, I put on some sporty tires(probably racing tires *Wink*) and some really nice rims called Slayer. Overall... That car is nice. And by the way, I had some paint laying around, so I made it black. Plus, it has a whole new bodykit that is custom made by me and a friend of mine. All of this cost me a total of V$2000.

3:30 PM.....

While I was swapping the rims on my ECR33, I got a call. It was from my friend, telling me that the transmission has gone out. Inside the transmission, something with the gearing shredded its self, completely ruined itself. So, it will be at the shop getting its replacement trans that I had as an extra. Here is the ECR33, setting on some new rims. Those rims and tires cost me around V$500.

Hey everyone... I have happened to notice that a lot of people haven't came to this and posted, and I now know why. From this post on, I will not take any type of part from so called "Friends" and I will turn this into a real RP. Starting off, I will basically go ahead and spend about 1/2 of the money I have and do it for Christmas presents. And starting from now forward, every single part, car, or anything that happens to be money costing will be in place. I would like to thank @NotPerfect for giving me the heads up about this. And I will thank all of the rest of you that has welcomed me to this forum. If, this is just a big if, I need to shut this forum down and start a whole new one... I will. I want to make this as realistic as possible. Thank you and have a good Day/night whenever you see this. If anyone has any sort of ideas, that would be great. Oh, one more thing... I usually keep this to myself because of reasons, but I guess it is time that I mention it. I am a 18 year old high-functioning Autistic teenager. Just wanted to let everyone know. Have a good holiday as well. Peace
