    Just spotted that myself on my morning news session. Tops. What is it with people being obsessed about having a low car...especially on the street!

    Cars look better low Also remember that Speedhunters is full of JDM fanboys and SoCal people, so lowness is a way of life.

    What is it with people being obsessed about having perfect geometry and high performance... especially on the street!

    If we were being sensible we would all have stock Hybrid Estima vans

    edit: The beauty of it is that nobody would have their car the same as yours, so it means that your car is REALLY your car. Within a few seconds of looking it is easy to understand the thinking behind almost any modified car. Most cars are just a project with a goal that has yet to be reached. Others are finished with the compromises that real life imposes. On internet we all have infinity dollars and no police so we can be as silly as we like with mods.

    Just another admirer of this amazing build. You've built something unique, tasteful, and totally personalised. As people have said, it's a shame there aren't more S13's like this one!

    With all the dough that's gone into it, i'm sure people have mentioned what you could have bought instead, but i'm glad we're not all the same, or builds like this wouldn't happen.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I need to share more. I have 5mths of pics from when it finished at the track to the engine sitting in bits. Currently getting the engine rebuilt...hindsight is an amazing thing. Doing it right with ACL bearings and 9.0:1 forged pistons. Will be sure to update here when there's a new post up.

    Oh, and thanks.
