    Team 307 RB26 s14.5

    Its time to post up some progress of my s14 build "Yes another s14"

    When it comes to drifting im very much un-known ive done about 4 years of building setting up and competing in this car.[​IMG]
    Ive wanted to build a comp drift car for a lot of years now and am finaly in the position to go for it. I am not a mechanic, fabricator or an engine tuner but im hoping to show that with a bit of back ground and a lot of ambition i can build a awsome drift machine. I will also be using lots of ideas from other peoples build pages.

    Any advice you can give of if you spot anything i could be doing better just post a comment. If your in the aberdeen area drop me a comment as well.

    Right it starts with a 23 hour drive down to gloucestershire and back to pick up the car

    That is the sensitivity controller for the internal alarm sensors.

    Lozza asked earlier.

    Nice build fella. Look forward to updates.

    Alright dude, welcome along. There's loads of folk in the Aberdeen area with more s-bodies per population head than anywhere else in Scotland by a long shot. There's plenty of knowledge up here if you need any help or advice. We all meet up once a month for food or a piss up etc around Aberdeen. You'll have to get yourself along. There's also various night time activities that I'll explain in person. :)

    Fuk maaaan you have gone all out! If that was any lighter it would fly, even with 10j wheels it was sketchy so your gonna need a poo bag attached to the driver seat :)

    I see my pikey brake mods are still in lol

    Did you still want the front arb?
