Before i start, this wont be a blog detailing the full events of RD.1 There are plenty of those available online and i don’t see the need to add another to the pile. Before i moved to start working at Driftworks i assumed i would end up at a couple of rounds of the BDC […]
Driftworks JZX110 Mark2: Little Burnout Test
We just fitted a new ABC Clutch Twin plate clutch to the car, along with a new rear section of the exhaust made by Dynotorque (we removed the rear silencer, and made it twin exit) In Phils eyes, there’s only one way to test it! […]
Drift Matsuri 2013
No really! Where has the year gone?… We’ve covered over 1,700 miles this year travelling to BDC events so it seemed fitting to end the season with another long drive to take part in the UK’s first Drift Matsuri event held at Anglesey Race track in Wales. We set off lunchtime on Saturday and made […]
JZX110 Mark II Build – Part 4 – DONE!
Man I’ve taken my sweet old time with this one! But I’m really happy with how it’s turned out! 565bhp, 560ft/lb’s torque, and all the work on the arches has paid off! The tyres are 285/30/18 and fit perfectly! Aside from Driftworks, thanks also has to go to: Dynotorque for the work on the amazing […]
JZX110 Mark II Build – Part 3 – Vertex Aero
This isn’t really a proper ‘build’ update. It’s just a few pictures taken in haste, as the Vertex kit just landed at Birmingham airport. I HAD to see what it looked like eh! I also found a pair of matching front wheels which came in from Japan recently which fit perfectly. The cars filthy, the […]
JZX110 Mark II Build – Part 2 – Turbo & Exhaust Fabrication
So the original plan was a relatively simple and most importantly cheap turbo upgrade for my JZX110 Mark 2 project. I was thinking Holset, and a cut and shut manifold. Unfortunately then this turbo set up came to my attention being sold on the forum. It’s a Garrett GTX3076R on a 6Boost manifold with a […]
JZX110 Mark II Build – Part 1 – Welding and Bashment
My old JZX100 Chaser was one of my favourite Japanese road cars I’ve owned, and I’ve always had a bit of an itch to scratch since getting rid of it some years ago. JZX110’s were always a little out of my league pricewise as they look shit as standard in my opinion, and modified ones […]
Outsiders – Nagoya Super Autobacs D1SL Power Day!
After an intense night of street drifting, running from the Japanese 5-0, and with some of us being awake for almost 30 hours, we decided to have a day to relax and, er, look at even more cars. So after a stop at Starbucks to wake ourselves up, we went for drive through the very […]
