    samoo's 180sx, been drifting again pg21

    Here's my beat up FC3S drift hack, the 180sx starts on page 16.



    motor/driveline:
    -original unopened 13bt, airpump and egr removed
    -microtech LT10S + Bosch coils + hand controller
    -Rising RPM fuel rails
    -1000cc Bosch Injectors
    -SARD Fuel Pressure Reg
    -Aluminium radiator
    -Flexalite 180 thermo fan
    -K&N pod on solid intake piping
    -FEED 3inch catback, custom extended tip
    -cat removed
    -HKS T04e turbo kit + externalgate w/screamer
    -Greddy Type R BOV
    -reinforced diff mounts
    -xtreme clutch
    -PWR intercooler on custom piping
    -PWR oil cooler w/ corksport braided lines
    -Cusco MZ 2way diff
    -twin belt alternator pulley setup
    -Turbosmart Boost Tee
    -catch can
    -walbro intank fuel pump
    -aeroflow lift pump + surge tank

    suspension/brakes:
    -Tein mono flex coilovers w/ 10kg and 9kg springs
    -supernow rear camber adjust rod
    -powered by max shortened rear links
    -F&R strut braces
    -17x8 +12 AVS Model 6 front w/ 35mm spacers (-24 offset)
    -17x9 +18 AVS Model 6 rear
    -increased caster front control arm bushings
    -slotted rotors + EBC redstuff pads front + RDA rear pads
    -cusco master cylinder stopper
    -braided brake lines
    -modified ebay hydro w/ wilwood master cylinder
    -dual rear calipers
    -bilspeer modified drift knuckles
    -supernow steering rack spacers

    misc:
    -S5 tail lights
    -bigmouthed S5 front bar
    -Bride Brix on superlow rail
    -nardi deepcorn with 40mm boss spacer
    -defi link display + defi BF boost gauge
    -works bell 'toshiking' gear knob
    -RE amemiya mirrors
    -topstage bonnet vent on S4 NA bonnet
    -Brown Davis Half Cage
    -sealed/vented battery box inside cabin


    It started life as a bog stock s4 lowered on king springs, catback exhaust, fuel cut defender.


    Had some good times, and some bad, gone through 2 alternators, oil cooler line, new windscreen, crashed it, broken battery tray, but overall its been one of the most reliable cars I've ever owned.

    Cool FC man- some real Drift Tengoku 2001 vibes going on! Are they Advan Model 6's?

    How does the FC slide? What suspension and steering mods do you have on the car?

    Haha that's kinda the style I'm aiming for, nothing too blingy, old school T04 etc and yep they're model 6's yep!
    The FC slides okay, find my 180 a bit more predictable tho. Really need the t04 turbo on tho, its struggling for power so badly

    The setup in the video is TEIN mono flex, cusco MZ 2way lsd, 5mm steering spacers, modified knuckles, increase caster bushes, whiteline swaybars

    Nice! Model 6's look great dude. I've heard the FC's are a bit more snappy/less predictable than your equivalent S13 chassis.

    Cool, thanks. Did the knuckles improve the predicability?

    FC's have stuff all lock from factory, so it was near impossible to do proper slides.
    The knuckles gave me the confidence to start actually throwing the car a bit.
