    Absolutely fucking love this car & wish the kit was available for the R33 :alschaser

    All credit to you bud... It should be an animal with an RB30. Can't wait to see more of the car! :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    As far as a wide arch kit goes, was it a direct fit kit or did it need much adaption? ;)

    It's a PS13 Rocket Bunny spoiler, I'v got the same one. Pretty much fits straight on.

    S14 won't fit due to curvature. PS13 and R32 have almost identical boots in terms of shape (i.e. straight).

    Thanks guys! still got some things to sort, get the rb30 engine sorted, new head build, full sticker livery for the 2017 season ands im currently working on a differential build, once I start it ill update with some new photos.

    but so far so good for the car! some teething issues as expected but nothing catastrophic other than diff explosion

    so I guess ill do an update!

    first of all a photo showing the change from shortly after I got it to where it is now (ish)

    I then had a visit from Pixeltoon Photography's Ash all the way from new zeland for a photoshoot of the car!
    What an awesome dude he is.

    After the shoot I attended a euro car show hosted by Eurospotter.
    the car won top 15 car trophy and the decibel battles!

    [​IMG]

    after all these nice static shows it was time for some testing. after fine tuning the map myself and still unknown power I done a drift dat at Teesside where the diff ended up destroying itself

    after temporarily fitting a standard welded s14 diff into the car I managed to make it to the Drift Outlaws licensing day and took home my license to compete in thir 2017 season

    I also got myself a nice new set of boolaz! 17"11.5 et3 with 5" dish work equip anheilo's but they aren't really shown in any recent photos.

    so far so good. many more plans to unfold before the year is out!
