Strawberry fresh crew? Minty hardly applies anymore! Looks awesome [emoji4]

....I'll get my coat
Passed you this morning sounds nice
Thought id throw a little update up.
Some pics from the last driftday
Then we did some things on my birthday, and as a result, a lot of shiny things emerged.
Ordered some oil and gearbox seal, will hopefully replace this weekend.
love this! my inspiration to get a tezza!
ive spent two days reading this, my eyes!! come over to ireland and work on my silvia please?? haha its an amazing build, ive a friend with a non vvt 1jz in an altezza too but thats a long story! where do you find all your wheels?
I think its time for another overdue update.
Had some last minute issues to sort right before finalboss last month.... Hub bolts sheared off in the carpark, haha
Then we went to take some pics
Then, the following day we loaded up and hit the road down to driftland
Finalboss was so much fun, hard to remember all the details now. But chilling and driving with every internet cunt was awesome. Even Team Tekno rocked up
Me and D had no issues all weekend, while Mint was battling missfire issues, and Jites kept blowing up gearboxes
Weather got shit at times
And got better at other times
Actually managed to get home in one piece
Ill just do a photo dump from the weekend below.

Are you selling the steering knuckles?
good shit man (y)
Ive spent the last 2 almost 3 days reading this whole thread at work and wow, so much work and effort put in to this altezza its beautiful. Serious love for this. I too have a white Altezza with full TRD kit sitting nicely on HSD coilovers also. I've just bought a low mileage 3S-GE engine with turbo goodness to chuck in and cant wait, claimed around 300bhp.
Wish i had the time, money, and most importantly the know how, to do that kind of work you have done to my altezza especially with the 1jz. Perhaps you should come South Wales and give me a hand haha!! Cant wait to read more on this car.
Well done dude keep up the good work!
Like most others here, I've just spent the last week reading this whole thread and it's fucking incredible. Beautiful car and I love the fact you never had a hint of stopping even when this went wrong.
Keep up the awesome work man
How's the W58 holding up, man?
Damn! Its been a while since Ive been on here. A bit busy with life, any spare time goes into the tezza.
W58 is holding up well, no issues so far. Peak boost is 0.95bar on actuator pressure.
Past two weekends we hit up the track for the first time since Finalboss. Mr D and Jites are having car issues, so it was just me and Mint. Gave us a good opportunity to have some practice driving with each other. Never quite had the opportunity to do that since there was always something going wrong at past drift events, which resulted one of us being in the pits fixing shit. But that changed.
We managed to make our way to Crail and then Driftland this Sunday. The weather was good, but it was a bit crowded. As a result we only got about 5 runs in, in total. But it was still an insane amount of fun. I dont think the driving was an issue, it was more of a case of gaining trust and confidence throwing the car in behind people...rightly so as it nearly ended badly a few times.
Few photos popped up since then
Thacko came to do some filming that day as well, and Im liking the clip he has put together
And as usual, some driver footage from both cars
Pics don't work m8
They definitely do.
