FINALLY.

So I finally got my wheel back, all fixed. I took the wheel to MAG MASTERS in Santa Ana who managed to fuck my wheel up more than it originally was. And they took 5 weeks to accomplish that. So after complaining and offering to not pay them a cent, I got my wheel back and took it to another place, Simple Wheel Werks, who had it finished in just 3 days and it looks good as new.

I think it’s going to rain tomorrow night so we’re going drifting again.

Here you can see the damage my fender took. Hopefully I can find a new one soon.

So I’ve got my camera almost squared away, now I’m going to start crackin on the Skyline. Hopefully it will be running soon.

Though I doubt it.

Street Warrior

“Objective for tonight: Drive less like a wuss and more like a boss.” – Me earlier that night.

Well here’s what happened when I tried to take a shallower line in order to catch up to Nieko. My ultimate goal was to kind of “tap” Nieko or get really really close, but as you can see I was too shallow, went too far on the inside and when I ran out of room so I tried holding the e-brake to slide me back out.

Which clearly did not work the way I had planned.

The video is quite funny, because I just disappear like a damn chump. Hahahaha.

Japanese Lowrider

My car runs. It actually runs awesome, and it’s extremely quiet. Last I drove it, it had some exhaust leaks that sounded like caca and drove me nuts. Now it sounds like a Prius which is favorable because I can go street drifting this season without creating a ruckus and getting pulled over within 5 minutes of arriving at the spot.

Before we go into full on rainy season I’d really like to work on my hideaway license plates, pick up a CB radio and a handheld 5-0 scanner. Would be pretty beneficial.

It felt good to drive it again, and I already missed it even though last time I drove it was only 10 days ago. I can’t wait to find a differential for it so I can start drifting already.

Shit. My Skyline will never get done. Ever.

Blow Addict

So apparently, my car is a blow addict.

Yes, it is addicted to blowing motors.

Probably because I neglected to change the oil recently… It was quite a costly mistake if you ask me. Anyway, oh well. Gotta find a new engine I guess. I ALMOST got an SR20DET front clip, but last minute decided not to.

The motor was pulled last night. Pics of the massive hole in the block and the rod sticking out later. Today I clean up the engine bay and go look at another motor. Excellent.
