What do I update when I’m not driving or putting new crap on the car? How about a couple pics. Yeah. From ASB 2012. OK, the car looks like shit. Two decent pictures from the whole event, bleh. Lame but no one to blame but myself. It’s time for aero and paint, no denying it anymore. […]

Finished and driving.

OK, the car is running and drifting and making cool noises with the occasional backfire or flames. It’s pretty badass. OK, on to business. Got some nice pictures below, taken with a camera better than my phone. More importantly, this past Thursday I drove the car 40 miles to Adam’s, drifted for three hours and drove […]

Back home.

by ryandriftingfat on September 15, 2012

Picked up the car from Battle Version today, home safe and sound. Drove it around 30 miles and did some donuts no issue. Car feels amazing, so easy to break loose and hold steady. I think this car will be capable of big things.

Well this sucks.

Bleh I hate even writing this down. TO bearing wasn’t pressed in right, seized up, broke the pressure plate. This on an Exedy Hyper kit. Exedy doesn’t sell pressure plates separately. Consider that a major negative for future purchasing considerations. Whatever though, working on a couple other options. Down probably another week at least. Should […]

One last update.

This is the last update before I drive the car home – the updates that follow will probably be much bigger and have some new toys. The car is running but needs a little bit of tuning before it’s ready to leave the shop; should be this weekend. Here are some pics of the oil […]

This should be the last update before the car starts. Most everything is wired and powered. Hoping to start tonight or tomorrow. Cage appointment has been made as well.

Wiring progress pictures.

Not much of an update, the wiring is still in progress but the car should be able to start inside of a couple weeks. Due to the amount of time it’s taken for wiring to get done, the car is going off to Battle Version for an FD cage once the wiring is done. In […]

Another non-update.

So I finished the mechanical stuff on my car in late February. It’s been 4 months and I still don’t have a running car. The event I wanted so desperately to have it finished for has come and gone. This sucks, but there have been some major issues since then, not entirely in my control. So with […]
