I have been looking over the builds and on driftworks for some amount of time think its about time I get involved! I have been into drifting for as long as i can remember thanks to my dad. He has had his 180 for about 8-9 years now i beleive. Its what i learnt to drive in and have been hooked ever since. I was also lucky enough to go to japan with my family for a holiday and while we where there we went to ebisu for round 1 of the 2008 D1GP! Got to meet so many drivers that i have been endlessly watching in DVD's and on youtube! Bit of car history (will be short) My first car was a 1989 AE92 corolla. Loved this wee car! Unfortunately had to sell it as i was moving to the mainland from northern ireland. After a while i was ready to buy another car and had to be RWD so i got myself an import MK1 Mx5. Drove it for a while but wasnt really me! so i sold it and i was carless AGAIN! Decided it was time to get a car that i would be happy with and not get it just cause it was RWD! So after some searching i realised that finding a clean s13 was going to be a problem! Found a few that i wanted but when came to putting down the deposit the owners backed out of the sale! After exhausting alot of efforts i came across a completely standard s13 auto with 64000 miles on the clock so got my dad to go look at it since it was in Northern ireland! He went and looked at it and told me it was a good solid car! that was enough for me the money was transfered and i now owned a s13. Problems: It was and automatic! My job didnt allow me to come and pick the car up for a few months! Was gutted! so again I (my dad mostly haha) was hunting on the internet getting parts for the conversion. Got converted then i got a call i didnt want to hear! the gearbox was SH*T! Got Paul at PJS auto engineering to take it apart and tell me what was wrong because it was supposed to be a reconditioned box! The issue was whoever rebuilt it didnt clean it properly and dirt! yes dirt! was the issue. Once it was put back together it was perfect After that i bought some BC Racing coilovers got them put in and then i came and collected the car! Drove it about for a while! Got the diff welded by Stuart Roy off SXOC, he was a great guy and many thanks to him!
