    I got 8 off ebay :p 6x Bronze all in the same sizes and I got 2x Chrome 18's for £200 off ebay too :p lol. I got one new one on route from JDM distro but I ordered that last year and still not shown up yet.. I also hunt Yahoo for them but I only want the 9.5 et15's or the 32's. Not interested in the 9's or below anymore.

    Battles are the same wheel. Discount Tyres is a stocker and they will ship to the UK.
    I think it cost roughly £200 delivered for one wheel new from JDM distro in a 9, but as I say, its taken since last year some time and still no show yet haha.

    No difference dude. Just where there made and who owns claim to them.

    CST originates in Asia. Sold in Japan, made in China/Taiwan.
    MB originates in America. They re brand A-Tech wheels based out of Taiwan.

    MB got the rights to re brand the CST Hyper Zero to the Battle.

    Chrome ones are only available via CST and are discontinued. There is though other colours now.

    The ones to want are the 9.5's. Most concave. Same goes for either the ET15 or 23 in the 18.

    First and probably only drift day of 2016 happened Sunday and it was pretty mega.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Car was all ready, loaded before midnight the night prior. Woke up on time, was early ish.. 3 up and headed off south for our 4 hour drive or so haha. (D Had a trailer and was limited).

    [​IMG]

    Day was going good, Had 3 sessions before problems happened.

    [​IMG]

    I cocked up early on the first sesh and Pete brake checked me after D brake checked him :p resulting in me bending is nice, fancy shotgun exhaust and his BN bumper. My shitty vertex was fine though as was my cooler ;0 So on we went.

    However on my third session the box packed in. I just thought it was super grippy tread however quickly realised.. I could choose NO gear.. >_>

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Which was a shame really, as I was only just getting back into it, but meh.. Sods law haha. Thankfully the team were on hand to get it looked at, however it was a lost hope on the day :( booo!!!!

    The guys were going good all day. Was some amazing fun.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pete took my rear off and drove over it. Then he drove over his, after D knocked all his off. haha. We had littered the place!

    [​IMG]

    Was an amazing day with mates. I leave the country in 2 weeks to live in New Zealand for a year and then Japan I hope, So it was good to see all my mates again and do some skids before my time here is up.

    Took like 5 hours to get it home, Never driven without a clutch before and it was a challenge navigating through cities / towns etc with lights, roundabouts and heavy traffic and of course cops.. thanks to the dudes for the push starts and bumps to get me home safe! :)

    I'll drop the box and see whats what next week then it'll be into storage for a year or so... :(

    Hopefully it's something simple Mint :(
    Be nice not to have to shell out for a new R154.

    You guys were on it all day, always entertaining to see you out and a friendly bunch too...except when the sneaky f*cking Russian tries to take me out with his door on Start Line.....

    All the best to you and Soph for your travels :)

    Cheers man, Was good to see you again and thanks for all your help on the day too! :D

    I hope its just a bearing or a plate.. fingers crossed, but in all fairness, a BMW 6 Speed would be nice, those motorway cruises are killer with the 5 speed 154 compared to my old 6 speed Spec R.

    We will be back though.. Gotta do more smashing into petes lexus ;D hahaha.

    T-Works photos are super legit, @cuku93 are you on this board bruh!? Need high res images posted as I have no FB :(

    Yeah, Yeah, likely story ;)
    TBH, I have NO idea why I didn't walk up the other side :p

    Hope there aren't too many repairs needed to your Zorst and kit :)

    No probs man :) happy to help!
    Hope so, at least you've got the BM contingency if it is the worst case...and then it doesn't matter so much if you do blow them because they aren't 1500 a pop...

    Connor isn't on here unfortunately, drop me a PM with your mobile number and I'll send it on to him for you :)

    About time you updated this.
    Love it man. Will have to make the journey up to driftland at some point, maybe I'll enquire about BigGayBoss, or whatever it's called these days
