    Didn't take me long to smash a wheel or two and bend a lower arm, Damn kerbs. Anyway a quick trip to jap performance parts and the lower arm was sorted and two new wheels ordered and were here within 2 days.

    I took it for a rolling road run to see what sort of power it was making as i was expecting a bit more from it. Let's just say it was a little down on power. So I ordered up a mishimoto rad as the stock one was tiny.

    And got an aem wideband to keep an eye on things along with an avcr as I much prefer them over all others.

    So I took a little drive to abbey motorsport for a remap and made 365 at the hubs.

    So now shes all better its time to concentrate on bodywork and my trip to drifttland the Mrs got me as an Xmas present. 5 hours private track time for me and a few mates. And definitely lydden a few times this year.

    Not much lock atm, track rods already hitting lower arms, toyed with the idea of going s body front end like the driftworks r32, but that would be a long way off yet.

    So the car didn't get painted how I wanted it as my mates s13 took too long, so it got a quick coat of satin black to make it less of an eye sore.

    Then driftland happened. What a day, Jeek is a top bloke, very friendly and the track is brilliant. So much so that we've already started booking it again for later in the year. So here's some pics from the day.

    So some shiny bits are on the way to me :) :)

    Fed up with the poor amount of lock this car has, and I'd rather only pay out once for something so went all out and ordered a TDP kit !!

    So the tdp kit is on. Pretty easy to fit and now have a hell of a lot more lock to play with. Just need to take it up to drift street imports for them to track it up. Bit of bashing about underneath was needed and a few bits of metal needed to be cut away for wheel clearance. Still rubbing the tyre on full lock so new wheels and tyre setup will be needed.

    Amazing bit of kit to look at, and can tell it's going to be strong. Hubs were a bit heavier than I expected though.

    Not great pictures, was in a rush to get home.

    I sold my 350z to buy that car. You beat me to it you bastard!
    The tdp kit looks amazing. Glad to see the car's being used properly and hasn't ended up being broken like most cars do these days.
