my old thread - http://archive.vstanced.com/forums.php? ... 1862&d=920

hi! i'm marcus, based out of Osaka. I've been on here for a while so dare I say I'm an RP veteran?

I love low cars, and when I mean low, I mean REALLY low. Style is key!

Here is my current fleet of cars, in their current states. I'll post update photos of the cars in transition from when they were last seen as time goes.

S15

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

This is my pride and joy, my 2000 Nissan Silvia Spec R. I've owned this car for almost two years now, and I intend on driving it into the ground. Full S14 Tomei Genesis SR22 with the Neo VVL head, forged internals, Garrett GTX4508R Gen 2 turbo, 850cc Deustchweks injectors, all the works. This motor reliably makes 485whp, and man is this an insane street car.

RPS13

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

This is my mint 1997 Nissan 180SX Type X (RPS13). I bought this thing bone stock late last year after parting out my long time 91 RPS13 shell (which I plan on rebuilding!) and did some small mods to this car. Slammed it over a set of 326power Chakuriki GT+S coilovers (12k/14k spring rates) and fitted Cusco control arms to dial in some camber. As for motor work, someone was selling a very cheap Tomei MX8265 complete with ARC air box, so I bought the whole lot for the air box alone knowing I can get some decent money for it. I'll eventually go Tomei Arms M7960 and full front mount, but for now, the stock side mount intercooler will do. This car may be subject to the same treatment as my S15, but who knows?

ER34

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

The last time anyone saw this car, it was fully BN Sports kitted out and slammed to the floor - looked straight out of TAS 2002. Drove like shit though, and I really wanted to take advantage of the Garage Saurus massaged RB25DET. Fast forward a few weeks later, and the RB25 blew up on track at Nikko during a track day. Bummed, but not deterred, I had a 1JZ-GTE motor lying around from my previous RPS13, so a few months of wrenching later, I shoehorned it into my R34 and as it sits, it's a rocket ship. Fitted 255/45/R18 Advan AD08's in the rear, raised the car a tad, and this car absolutely flies. Cannot wait to paint it.

JZA80

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

Admittedly, this car doesn't get to see the road much. I don't insure it often, but this is my JZA80 street car I built early last year. Mildly breathed on 2JZ-GTE, Trust T78-33D, Greddy intake manifold w Q45 throttle body and 750cc injectors, making a solid 450whp. This car takes heavy inspiration from Max Orido's Supra, and he has given me countless pointers in building this car.

ZC6

When I got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

Being the newest car I've ever owned, I've been a little skeptical cutting this one up, especially since it was supposed to be my daily. I still use it as a daily as I love the modern amenities of a newer car, but I've taken a lot of the comfort out by slamming it to the floor and making it loud enough to wake the dead. Engine wise is relatively simple, Tomei equal length header, Tomei front pipe, and custom GP Sports Exas F1 catback. Aero is INGS, S13 Ganador mirrors with Faction Motorsports mirror plates, and suspension is full 326power. This is one of my favorite cars in my garage.

V35

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

It might not look like much, but I picked up this project car with the sole intent of proving that not all V35's have to look like shit and sound like shit. This car came with a partially complete 2JZ-GTE swap, so I finished up the swap and dressed up the motor similar to the one in my Supra. Panic Wire over in the Pacific Northwest across the pond built me a new wiring harness to mate the 2JZ to the Nissan electronics, and I fitted the car with BB-Run aero including their bespoke overfenders. Suspension is 326power Chakuriki GT+S as always, valved for 14k/16k.

E36

When I first got it

Image

Currently

Image

Image

Finally, the ugly duckling E36. I bought this car because it was simply too clean to pass up, but as time goes on, I end up just using this car as my daily driver because I refuse to modify the M50B25 as I have no idea what is going on with BMW motors. Most of the work went into the suspension and converted it to 5x114.3. Exterior wise, I fitted a pair of S13 Ganador mirrors, M3 bumper, M3 skirts, and a replica front lip.

That is all for now! I'll fill in the missing gaps of how these cars came to be after the months I've been gone, but here's to cool cars!

Is it just me or are all of your cars in the same color? :? Stance is just on point on all of them too, but you got such a clean E36 so be careful not to rub the rear fenders or anything like that!

OI! :lol:

Joking aside, glad to see your collections alive and kicking as usual! :)

And uhh.... @Lagano, I'd say it's how he shows his identity, after all our cars and mods basically forms our identity and speaks our thoughts and imagination. I might be too poetic over this but I'm sure you'll get the point :lol: (and I'm sure most of them are coloured in different shades)

hahaha it seems a lot of my cars start out pretty similar shades of grey/blue/something dull, but fear not, I'm gonna add some colour to my life!

I own too many, can't afford to keep more than 3 on the road at once hahaha. Let's do it, S15 streeto time soon?

V35

So I dropped off the V35 for paint at Benny's Garage, they handle a lot of the work on my Supra and pretty much all of my paint needs - quick turnaround time and quality work.

Image

Then I met up with my good friend AJ (aka RocketBunnyS13) and we went for a cruise out in our GT style street cars, and boy did I feel cool mobbing around Osaka with him.

Image

Image

Image

Few days after that, here's the daily doing daily duty (for once!) hauling back aero for the 180SX. Had to take the passenger seat out to fit the whole bumper, but its in there!

Image

Just love how this car sits.

thanks man! it sits just right in my eyes, though i'd love to take this car a step further with an HM Sports or Bacon kit, something along those lines.

RPS13

Got the bumper home, safely and in one piece. Its a GT-1 front bumper, colour matched! I've been hunting for this bumper for a long long time.

Image

Image

Got the bumper out of the car..

Image

I really need a front mount..

Fuck yes.

Man. I really lost the plot on the goal of 'daily driver' didn't I.

Image

This car was supposed to stay relatively clean and comfortable to daily - except I've taken everything comfortable and lowkey about this car and thrown it out the window. But golly me does it look fucking pretty.

Image

With some heavy fender massaging, we managed to fit my GTR spec LMGT4's (last seen on my Z33) under these narrow ass fenders and I could not be happier with the look.

Image

Took it out for a drive to make sure it doesn't rub much and took some photos, and finally gave myself a much needed rest day as I'm bringing the R34 out to Sazan Circuit tomorrow for a test and tune day.

Image

Image

pretty sick DAILY DRIVER right?

Eh, my Silver Queen ain't exactly the comfiest daily car around anyways :lol: What matters is we're comfortable and confident enough to use it for various purposes in our daily lives ;)

And as usual it sparks a lot of cool vibrations, I love it! :D

thank you guys! my 'daily' looks fantastic but now its time to have some fun with it.

ER34

Brought the Uras GT ER34 out to Sazan Circuit a couple days ago to do some test runs, and my friend loaded up my E36 with spare parts in case I broke something.

Image

Image

Image

The car drives fantastic. The 1JZ is perfect for this car, torque throughout the rev range (a lot better than the peaky RB25 which made most of its power up top), which makes it a lot easier to drive. Two issues I noticed though - the 18's up front rub so much and occasionally makes contact with the inner fender a lot, and cooling isn't quite up to par yet (got hot after 4-5 laps).

Image

Image

To combat the rubbing up front at lock, I traded my pair of 18 inch fronts for a set of 17 inch fronts, although they were fluorescent pink and I plan on repainting them anyway. I also threw the kit on for good, because I can't stand how it looks half disassembled.

Image

I also found an ex drag car R34 headlight vent on YJP for 350,000yen, and hopefully it'll help with cooling?

Image

The look is finally starting to come together. Paint next. Any colour ideas?

Image

Expenses
(idk what my current balance is) - 3,500 = (will calculate later if i don't forget)

URAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA(S body kit)!!! The ER34 looks extra lit! :D

I was thinking about pink paints but then realized the G35 is already colored green so.......either neon purple or pink a la vaproware vids or lavender perhaps?

URAS always looking good no matter what car it is, and there's something about the different color body panels, it looks good haha, and pink wheels suit on white/black the best imo, and the headlight vent completes the look of the car, it gives it the aggressive look, i like it alot dude.
