cheers fellas, Ive got a few more vids from the day but I'm not going to upload them until I sort out this youtube resizing issue, I think I may have found out though but it means copying all the footage from my camera all over again with a different program :(

Also: I finally got 5 stud hubs, all I need now is to redrill the rotors

Geez, havent updated this in a while……

Well I got rid of the 5 stud hubs as I now have some better 4 stud wheels and cbf doing rotor redrilling. Car has now been sprayed in Kawasaki Green with a gloss black bonnet and roof. Bodykit is some jetspeed thing which is gayer than aids but I needed a kit ASAP for a dvd shoot and this was all that was available at the last minute…..But I have a vertex kit ready to paint but this is now a bitch since I moved to the eastern suburbs and now have a tiny garage in an apartment complex.

I had some issues with blowing driveshafts but now it has sorted itself out for some reason…..probably because the replacement driveshafts were on their last legs. I ended up melting the ecu wiring harness at a track day when it touched the oil feed line, so that has been fixed up now. I got rid of the twin pipes as they were too loud and replaced it with a cannon muffler, but its still loud thanks to the screamer pipe which Ill be getting plumbed into the exhaust system as marulan wont allow it :( Engine mounts have now been replaced with semi solid mounts……I now have a vibrating car which will keep the gf happy on long drives.

Harness mounting points have been moved up within CAMS specs now…..I have an SSQV and a Blitz DSBC which will go into the car before this weekend just in time for powercruise, which is also why I don’t want to do the bodykit as they like to run water filled barriers on the edge of the track which I will probably tag.

In the next month I plan to change the turbo setup from the Apexi RX6 and ex gate to a T28 Bush bearing internal gate to cut down on costs and so I can have a spare with me at the track in case I blow a turbo, this will mean a tweak to the power FC but I needed it retuned to 98RON fuel anyway so that is fine…..I'll get some pics up soon but the finish isnt too good considering I sprayed it myself in the backyard with single pack acrylic. Colour coats have been done and I still havent sanding it down so it looks a bit meh. I will sand it down though and finish it off with clear coat for a better finish but Ill have to do this at my mates place as I cant spray where I am now.

Basically since the ECU wiring melting issues and me moving I havent really touched the car for 5 months but now I am getting back into it :) will be competing in some drift comps this year and will be starting some time attack in either this car or my 180 daily.

Doripig no more :(

Well it looks like some pos highway cnt decided that I shouldn’t be on the road anymore, got red stickered on the hume on the way to wakefield so had to get a tow home and missed out on the festivities, fkn grrr.

Now as the car is not registered (or even complied for that matter) I am only allowed to trailer it to and from the track, kinda hard when your other car is a 180. So it looks like the car is a gonner, Im going to strip the bitch down to a rolling shell and try and get a registerable rolling shell to put my running gear into, what a pita :( my other option is to get a daily which can tow it and rent a trailer whenever I go to the track but I don’t want a boring tow car, still want to be able to scoot around in the daily so it looks like im fcked

Yes car was uncomplied but I had a permit for it, red stickered for exhaust, pod, wheels, fmic, bald tyres, no horn, no front and rear bars. Guess I was kinda pushing it with the lack of bodywork, front tyres had camber wear below the markers but I felt safer on them considering the other tyres I brought with were semi slicks

So a red sticker is the touch your toes and rubber glove treatment, do not pass go, etc? Can you get it back on the road?

That sucks sooo much.
But as you said the lack of body work was not the best bet when running past the cops.

Let us know what happens with the car....
if you start stripping, I call the bonnet! :P

Rolling shell for when you break the 180 might be the good idea :P

Hard luck and unfortunate end to its road going life, however it was quite the risk running the appearance and noise it was on the street.

I met you at the last DriftMob JapKhana mid May, I was in the green S14 S1 with black wheels driving on the day.

Nice driving, you got skill! :)

Cheers,
Grant

hey vex33d, yeah I remember u from the motorkhana day, it was fun but pity it was such low speed, ah well how can u go wrong for 50 smackers.

yeah it was always a risk but I always thought it was legal to do so and you couldnt defect un unregistered car, hmm guess I was wrong


After some careful thinking it looks like I will be stripping all the goodies out of this car and returning it to a stock rolling shell and selling it, someone will probably have a use for it if they have a tow car, I contemplated getting a tow car daily but cant do it, I want a 180 daily and thats final.

Still undecided on what to do for a replacement track car, might end up turning my 180 daily into a track pig and getting another 180 for a daily, or just getting a registerable rolling shell and putting my driveline from the s13 into it, ah decisions decisions.....
