so i've been on here ages and never really said much about my car but now i will. It's a pretty good car aside from a lot of stuff that sucks, but it's the only car i've ever owned that i actually like so I'm really happy with it most of the time. I bought it about a year ago with the paint and body kit done as well as some other stuff like the diff, gearbox and clutch but have changed pretty much everything else

I live on the northern beaches (sydney). I'm a uni student so my money situation isn't always the best but with the help of of Hit and Run as well as some other friends the car makes it to the track pretty often and get fixed after. I love drifting it's about my favorite thing to do other than party and snowboard, although to be fair those two things set impossibly high benchmarks anyway hahaha

anyway if you made it that far here are some pics so i don't bore people any longer, feels kinda whack talking about myself and my car this much - to most people it will probably look like a bit of a heap but hopefully there are some who appreciate what we do :)

feel free to ask questions or just say horrible things about it i'm cool with whatever

thanks for the photos whiteballz I've used your shots on the blog in the past before as well, always rippin

speaking of which lewis put some incredible photos up this afternoon from EC yesterday. Had a blast on the new north circuit, blew my diff and cooked her in a big way but was amazing. My mate corner weighted it and gave it a really good wheel alignment recently which has really done wonders for the car

if find me legit non reflective aqua tint i'll welcome it into my life, but my boy is moving to japan this year so i wanna buy a car over there and do a stack of matsuris, also heading to the states to see springsteen which i feel is an infinitely more appropriate application of finances than paint. especially considering we'll all be dead by the end of 2012 anyway

just doing my bit to preserve this piece of history :lol:


pretty much missed out on the Driftmob day on the 21st because i was too lazy and it sold out, so I decided to finish up the cooling system and install my hydro. While the dash was out I found all kinds of janky shit like a heater box, demister fan and loads of spare plugs behind it so I got rid of all that.

Cleaned up a bunch of the wiring as well, shifted my defis off the a pillar cos it's not 2001 anymore (unfortunately), fitted the Mishimoto fan kit and wired them into the haltech. We welded a plate into the trans tunnel to support the hydro so it doesn't flex and Billy hooked me up with some lines

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_2905.jpg

Twilight this month had no actual track so had to make do with wet pan. Hadn't done the pan since I first tried drifting a little over a year ago so wasn't sure what to expect

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/180-bros-2.jpg

First time out was stuck by myself and started to regret coming so bad, was hell boring

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/332285_318698504840229_100001002453994_916159_7249 31953_o.jpg

Then when we grouped up I ended up doing runs for most of the night with Biggie or Reaper, which was actually lots of fun but still really relaxed. We even ate sandwiches on the track at one stage

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/425889_10150608112910115_749465114_11110088_906732 099_n.jpg

Everyone else's shit blew up but mine was sweet cos Maatouk is the best and so am i, but I got home and noticed that my drive shaft boots had come off for like the 10th time so i gotta pull them out now and get some bigger longer boots that don't suck as much

08-02-12, 01:04 PM
Wow so I worked out why my RHS drive shaft boot kept popping off whenever i went druftin, turns out the bracket on the traction rod where it bolts to the knuckle was hitting it under compression, and smashing off the clamp.

You can see where it was hitting in this pic

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_1170.jpg

So I took both it and the driveshaft out, and my mate Jon clearanced the bracket and then boxed it off for a little extra strength

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_1184.jpg

put it back in and a job well done

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_1186.jpg

Also I finally tracked down a green faced defi water temp gauge and sensor to match the rest, so i put that in and tucked more of the wiring. I bought a 4.3 R200 off Darkness (Josh) as well which you can see in the foreground here, it's to replace the one I blew up in December.. still got my friend's borrowed diff in the car atm

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_1123.jpg

The car I borrowed the diff out of, taking it to my place for storage just for a bit

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/IMG_1166.jpg

Did some more of this

yeah texi was great, will definitely be back for their next one in July. Got so many runs, more of the guys would have come and skidded it on the weekend but they don't allow external waste gates :(

Here's a clip Eiji from Team Red Stage made of sunday, hahaha the reason I raped that cone was because I've mounted the seat way too low and actually cannot see anything from where i sit lol.. been dealing with it until now but will probs fix that before winton

Elvis he works at Porsche Racing Technology (PR Tech) in Brooky, but there are loads of places that do good wheel alignments as long as you tell them what specs


Are they Powered By Max Coilovers your running? How do you find them?

For the money I think they're great, I really wanted KW Clubsports but just couldn't afford it. PBMs are kind of like a half way between cheap coils and proper race coils - I'm happy with them.

so winton matsuri didn't go quite as smoothly as anticipated, i battled over heating issues all weekend, my drive shaft boots came off for like the 10th time, my bonnet flew up and smashed itself and the roof and my gauges would play up cos of the where i had run the wiring

there was a lot of this

and then this

followed by this

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/facepalm.jpg

that being said by the Sunday afternoon so many little things had gone wrong that I stopped caring, and just started belting the hell out of it cos I figured I had made it this far so why not. It didn't help that i was unbelievably hung over for like 3 days straight haha

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff172/atmo_bt1/P2253719.jpg

most of all the best thing about winton is that they let you do laps of the track which means you can wait up for your buddies and drive together, which I tried to do as much as I could of with Juzzo, Ryan and Ben. Unfortunately it doesn't look like anyone got photos of this but Scotty Mitchell had the gopros cranking all weekend so his video should come good :)

can see all the coolant sprayed on the windscreen in this one lol

I actually took the bar off for a few sessions, and yanked the thermostat out at the track to see if it would make a difference

kinda did but not really, gonna move my oil cooler from in front of the rad, clean up the water lines at the back of the head and do some ducting. If that doesn't work i'll look at a diff fan setup

ok sportsfans progress has been slow but i'm getting there haha, I pulled the borrowed diff out of the car and returned it to it's rightful owner, now my new super diff is off being built up in hornsby. On the weekend while it was all out I managed to get the subframe hard up against the floor (it was spaced off a little before), which should help with the driveshaft clearance and improve the roll center a bit or whatever. Bonnet is off being repaired as well, teeth are feeling god, got real drunk on sat night and Scott Mitchell's new video turned out amazing.. stoked to be in it even though I spent so much of the weekend fixing my car rather than driving it

subframe success

haven't really paid much attention to this thread recently real life has been a bit hectic

went to the states for April and partied, saw Formula D and a whole heap of other drift was pretty life changing

think i wanna move there next year after uni is done and just live some crappy version of the dream on one of the AM circuits

anyway haven't done heaps to this car cos i'm trying to save for whatever ends up happening

Fitted up the 4.3 ages ago then more recently got it rego'd and got the rear quarters painted, got a uras kit for it for the street as well. Still got the BN and Origin not sure what I'm doing?

no kit in this picture but that's the new daily/tow car, Autumn is so nice

thanks guys it was real good to see you too, I'm surprised at how much people like the Gram Lights on the car cos the main reason i got them was to try and make the car disappear a bit cos I really wanted to focus on my driving and just have fun.. Also I needed alot more wheels and it was pretty cheap to buy 8 of them! I've still got the Kranzes tho

Oh while I'm here i might at well talk a bit of shit hahaha. Wow so much has changed since i last wrote in this thread i don't really know where to start!

pretty much i did another 11 events this year (making 16 in total for 2012 i think) and the car has taken a hell beating but still works more or less. The highlight was probably going to Calder Park twice which was amazing, but I also did Winton a few times and Wakefield alot I'm still really enjoying short track, I went to EC a bit and even did a couple of skidpans a few months back.

We've had alot of fun and met so many great people but broken heaps of stuff! I'm on my 4th SR20 in the last few months because I broke the head gasket and rings in one, snapped a cam and bent valves in another and then span bearings on the 3rd one, I also broke the os giken gearset last weekend at Winton Matsuri and replaced it with a stocker because that's all we could get at the track. It feels OK but doesn't like shifting between 4th and 3rd on the go which means I have to be alot more precise with my shifts... probably a good thing cos my driving style kinda sucks all I do is spray and pray with the power

For anyone playing at home... 265s are not a good idea with an sr gearbox!

I gave the inside a bit of a make over with a chromoly cage, s14 dash and a haltech display and some new harnesses. I also stripped & painted it which took a long time and made me question what I am doing with my life. Don't ever do this!

I actually crashed the car pretty bad last month into my mate juzzo and bent the strut tower back so over the summer I am going to pull the car down and get it ready for 2013 by straightening it and doing a new front end. Also I've got a 1JZ i'm going to put in it to try and get a bit more reliability

cheers guys my buddy Jono did the cage in my car port in the lead up to a Vicdrift event at Calder, it was his first time tig'ing and working with moly but turned out great and makes me feel like a race car driver which is why we're all here right? Those bolt in jap cages aren't even cams approved i don't think, I wanna use the car for competition eventually (maybe not drift??) so it made sense to do a 10 point weld in or whatever it is


All that work and an S14 dash, who are you?

It's actually the dash out of the green goblin or whatever it was called before Brett cut it up, I had 2 15 dashes kicking but i got rid of them, s15 dashes kinda remind me of a 1972 prediction of what the year 2000 might look like. Cars flying and women wearing colored spandex and shit. They were wrong chewy, the reality was Nikki Webster and Wheatus.


I started pulling this car down yesterday, gonna take 3 months off driving and yeah just party more over the summer and make her look pretty again

nah car is still SR20, the 1J is coming along well though but I decided to do a bit more to it so I've been designing a new water system and I sold the R154 because I want to put a Jerico behind it. Bought a Tilton triple and a few other boring things, cams and springs next week then pretty much as soon as I find a box it can go in

In the mean time the car just sat around for like 3 weeks after that last eastern creek day before we figured it would be a good idea to let my buddy Jono drive it at a skidpan that was being held around Christmas. Jono does all the fab work on my car and is building this:

http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q724/best_guy/817_10151203495692075_875021695_n_zps79671fc3.jpg

So yeah he borrowed my car and had heaps of fun, railed the limiter a tonne and this motor loved it

http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q724/best_guy/282871_10151229564627075_568307096_n_zps97b108ae.j pg

Anyway so after that I worked on the 1J a bit more, I haven't really spoken much about that so here are some pics

Then yesterday at like 2pm my mate told me that there was an event on that night at the new Eastern Creek south circuit, I had gone out to watch ADGP there on the weekend and was pretty keen to try it so I got some tyres and fuel and headed out

Lining up with my mate harry and his 26/30 dr30 (wish they let us tandem)

http://i1356.photobucket.com/albums/q724/best_guy/IMG_3104_zps39f3b13f.jpg

The track was really easy surprisingly and the entry inspires alot of confidence (which i dont always have). Here is a photo of the entry pretty much you just scando left and then drag it down the barriers

then yeah just get into it for a bit, it's all 3rd gear so you don't really have to even bang gears unless you wanna get excited and get fourth towards the end

Here are some vids! There's a really good one on my facebook from when I was on the 235s (Kranzes) later on and it just bakes so much harder than the 265s, 265 is way more fun though

06-02-13, 02:44 PM
thanks bros, the idea with the J is pretty much to have a revvy but also hard hitting setup that I can hopefully get enough consistency out of to start driving a bit better. It'll sound more or less like this: bare minimum JZX90 1JZ, camtech 264/264, GSC 2j beehive springs, Titan balancer, 6boost single entry, GTX3582 .82, 50mm turbosmart gate, Haltech PS2000, Indy 1600cc, Haltech sensors, Aeormotive Eliminator fuel pump, Tilton triple plate, Jerico 4 speed with a Quicktime SFI bellhousing.

anyway I know how boring it is hearing someone tell you about what they gonna do to their car, so here are some pics from yesterday we had a private day at wakefield and all had a pretty good time. I destroyed another front bar and drove pretty average (especially on big track), but hey it's bonus drifting cos I never expected the current setup to go for as long as it has so I'll take what I can get :)

Good to hear you had fun dude you should enter the next one i think we've got another in april or something. And yeah i'll be parting the SR out soon but the turbo is already accounted for I think, other than that the setup is just a haltech ps500, 740s, os twin plate and the built motor with 256s so it's really pretty basic but has been great fun to make a mess with

What a machine!! Im yet to take a ride in a drift car...i think Ill be scared haha

nawww not really, I probably enter the kink at about the same speed as you do the fishook! Drifting is slow haha, kinda


god i am in love with those gram lights, specs?

9.5 +12 225/35, 10.5 +22 265/35 dewd

paid for gearbox and turbo and all that last week so just gotta wait around for them to come and the rear housing to get coated, then I guess it's time to start pulling the car apart yay

Jury Duty was boring as shit, I was there yesterday. Spent 6 hours in that waiting room hoping for a Law And Order type deal, got released after nothing.

What happens to the SR once it's out?

i know right exact same thing happened to me! And I spent like eight bucks on a foccacia upstairs. Fuck city slickers

I wanna sell the SR stuff and maybe buy a japan car or put it back into savings, maybe one then the other? 1j is costing seinfield money right now

Haven't checked in your thread in a while. 1JZ eh?
I like the sound of Toyota's straight six engine note, and to have all those torques and revs is just too cool.

Serious question though dude... why the upgrade?
SR20 just not reliable enough for drifting? Not powerful enough?
