    Fifi when the new kit goes on it will all be level at the bottom :)

    And I keep getting show pink things for sale but I think too much would be overkill tbh
    Plus I really like my white and neochrome wheel :p

    In the run up to santa pod on weds I decided to put fresh oil in the car and found out that HKS make pink oil filters so had to buy on

    New ones ordered from japan
    18x9.5 and 18x11

    Hopefully they come in time to send the car for rear tubs and over fenders sorting out so if the fenders do need a slight pinch we can do it

    Very nice choice of wheels!

    Does this mean the CSTs might be for sale??

    Let me know if they are.

    So yesterday I actually got out and drifted this thing

    Spent most of the days in the playpens getting used to the car and the way it drives as the last car I drifted was a standard is200 so this is a little different lol

    Started out well and having a blast about

    [​IMG]

    But pens being slow and the fact I was being a tool bashing limiter meant the stock radiator couldn't keep it cool

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That was an embarreating push tbh :( but let it cool down and refilled the system with some water just to get me through the rest of the day

    Thought it best to get max airflow and removed the front bumper
    Aswell as putting the heaters on 28 degrees fans on full to help try keep temp down and it managed a few more runs in the pens

    [​IMG]

    End of the day I did a run on the EDC layout and got up into 3rd gear ripping it
    Loved it tbh

    Few things I've found
    Hand brake needs looking at so I'll be stripping that down next week
    And the rad clearly needs an upgrade
    I'll be keeping the viscous fan but going for a fatter alloy rad

    I am just buying an R33, and think of drifting it non-competitively. What is your opinion about it?

    Sparky s13 thanks man
    Colour is what sold me on this car tbh when I first saw it

    Saddened I really like it tbh but I've only ever drifted this and an is200 so don't have a large bank of experience to compare to other cars
    It's got the grunt to drift well though for sure

    Yesterday this project took a turn and I think it'll be a slightly different kind of build but I'll get to that after chatting about the day

    Rocked up to pod for a day of fun

    Did a little session in a pen just to dip a toe then straight to big track for the say

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Found that under some moves of the car on the bumpy track it slammed the splitter into the floor

    [​IMG]

    I even managed to do some running with other cars

    [​IMG]

    Then it took a big turn for the worse
    Ran a little wide on the big corner past the hanger and the bump there unsettled the car making it snap right and pinned a concrete block

    [​IMG]

    So yea fuck

    Think it's repairable but it's going to take some work now
    The rails are tweaked across so it needs a pull at the least
    And then rad intercooler are obvious damage
    Rad hit all the pulleys on the front of the motor and has ruined all that

    Yet to dig further into the car to see how bad it is

    Currently whiplashed and I have a sore leg as I aggregated an old injury

    Gutted but I can sort it I think

    Shit happens

    Build, tune race, break, repeat.

    Just learn from it and move on, will make you a better driver in the long run :)

    Gutted for you mate but I'm sure it will come back better than ever.

    I have a slight hatred for pink cars but the quality of this build/respect and the cool parts your throwing at it makes me really like the car.

    Ripped the front apart so the rad and intercooler wasn't just mashed into all the pulleys and checked the front of the motor over and test fired it to check it's all good

    So onto chassis work
