really quick drive down the street with almost no brakes
nice build man, how long did that take?
Christ this thing is mega!
it got tuned. heres the dyno sheet. the top line is on its 98 octane tune and lower line is 95 octane tune
and heres a video of what launch control sounds like and a burnout
heres a video of it at the track drifting
and some pictures of it doing something or something
aaaaand now its like this because i got t boned. so thats gay as fuck.
Just read through the entire thread then I saw it, must be devastated.
Was really impressed with this build, fantastic spool on the turbo by the looks of that graph as well..
Damn was my favourite soarer ever
its really frantastic car i like it
Noooooooo! Man that sucks after building such a well sorted car!
Great figures from the rolling road btw
im devastated for you mate. urgh.
Hub Dyno dude..
Really sucks to see what happened to it man was looking great.
That's one hell of a crash. Were you ok?
right, well fuck. i got an update i spose.
i bought this pile of excellence
removed all this badness
victim meets victim
shit thats ugly
this was religated to shelf duties for a while
when i pulled my motor i figured id have a look to see how the rebuilt engine was going. turns out not very good. glad to see my luck is same as ever.
so a 2nd rebuild by an actual race engine shop this time. tops. i love paying twice for shit (more on this later, yay me)
knocked up a basic sump baffle-figured it couldnt hurt
bit of deja-vu here. also went back to stock cam pulleys as the adjustable ones were set to 0 anyway.
re-did the boot on the new car
and the engine bay-same color again but this time with rainbow flake (faggot flake)
got a lovley (sarcastic af) rollcage fitted
its a real gem, not a total piece of shit at all
this is what happens when your cage builder is a lazy half arsed twat
it would seem he just used a hoop he already had laying around. not even fucking close to fitting this shell
but i digress, after this a lot of time went on because the cage put a halt to everything. plus i moved house etc. just got put on the back burner. then one day an impulse buy came along that i couldnt not buy. (also note what i can only describe as dildo holders the rollcage guy put in after the cage failed compliance because its a pile of shit)
the rears are 18x11+1. and no, they dont fit lipped gaurds. i slightly readusted them with my old friend, little blue.
fronts are 18x9.5+14(i think?) with a 20mm spacer to clear the brakes
ignore the wing mounts for now
im making a 2nd post up now.
then after that i just left it for a long time again. mainly because i was saving for a trip to japan. best fucking thing i have ever done. drove at autumn matsuri, nice pic of higashi
traveled all over. was there for almost a month
met some heroes (if you dont know who this guy is just stop reading)
i bought imai-san's old bee-r edition nardi classic. he was ballfed why i wanted this old used wheel when he sells brand one ones haha. its just not the same. made him sign it too
anyway i got back to reality to find my car to tragicly find my car not finished by magic fairies. it had been sitting for a while...
figured id do something to it now. i bought a few shiney parts for it in japan. fitted these 326 power * swift springs all round. i think 36k and 28k from memory
made a new stainless exhaust
i like lobster bends
i notched and reinforced the subframe for maximum clearance. also note all the solid bushes i made a while ago. whole subframe and diff is solid mounted. few dollars of stock and a fair few hours on the lathe pays off
slightly muffler free
i put a v band there for when i get told my car is too loud and not allowed on the track anymore and have to have a section with a muffler in it
i have also been doing knuckles for soarer/supra quite a bit. hmu if you need any
couldnt think of any nice looking way to make wing mount brackets so i did this. theres a chance they will crack off but i doubt it
was a bit frustrating tigging this. pedal kept jamming and pissing me right off
trying to make it as least ugly as i can
i dont think its too bad. i also added an origin boot lip
its an origin 1750 wide wing in silver carbon, nott too much of a fan of the silver carbon. this photo also makes the stays look at a weird angle that they arent
also fitted my new nardi and a new works bell i picked up in japan
and 326 power wheel nuts (wank)
picture says it all really
prettymuch how it sits right now. im pretty motivated right now though so yeah...
the rear vortex generators i got while in japan and the side skirt blade things at the bottom are carbon and actually off a lamborghini gallardo. they wanted them removed from the car. so im like.....so can i have them orrrr?
so yeah, its a fully functioning and driving car as it sits. its getting its new GOOD rollcage put in very soon. not by the same fuckwit. so thats good i spose. after that its really only a panel and paint away from being done and thats kinda what i do so thats not hard
This thing is offensive. I love it!
Jono!!! Who's doing the cage this time? I take it they won't be blind?
Can't wait to see this thing back out again man, you've had a rough run but the old girl is still epic
PS: wing mount idea is awesome btw
This just got a whole world better!
ello uncle ben! nick from MFS is doing it this time. i could...but i just cbf. make it someone elses problem. ill be nagging the absolute fuck outta him though.
Just read the last couple of pages of this, seems you have a shit go of luck.
The previous "Roll-cage builder" deserves to have his eyeballs and scrotum TIG'd, to even think that that was remotely near passable was ridiculous!
Hope you get on better with the new builder though.
