    Rocket Bunny 6666 s13 sil80

    The 34 is now gone so started full steam ahead on a new car for the 2009 season.
    After the 34 I wanted a smaller lighter and more manoverable car, searched for an old school shell i.e. 240Z but could not find a suitable one, either rotten or massive price so with time running out I opted for the ever popular S13 shell.
    Want to build a ground up car that will compete at all levels and be road legal so I can have fun fun fun between competitions :).
    Found a shell here on :dw: where else, a good solid U.K. 200sx, a little rot in the rear end but nothing to worry about.
    Started mid Sept; work to date,
    The shell;

    Fantastic, by 6666 I guess you mean like the nascar inspired ones we've all seen parked up at Jap petrol stations? :D

    I didn't see much of a problem with your car last year apart from the laaag, you should be a force to be reckoned with next year in this beasty. I'll still be rocking the same shitbox but hopefully it'll work properly :)

    Nascar FTW !!!

    The 34 was great but it was built over 2 years whilst competeing and tbh at the start I didnt have a clue what "drifting" was all about so i just went for more and more powers hence ending up with a lag monster (until nitro) but nitro was not the answer.
    So trying to build the "ultimate" drift car from what I have learnt from all you guys and track time.
    Mikey you dont need a better car as you have the skills, I need any advantage I can build plus I do enjoy building cars with a purpose.
