Lately I have been spending the majority of my days and nights working and cleaning up my car in preparation for Matsuri. A good advantage of daily driving is finding common problems, faults and glitches that tend to give way. I have pretty much been trying to go over the car in order to replace so it becomes more reliable. Here is how it looks at the moment, still pretty much the same. The front got lowered a few weeks ago after the new exhaust was fitted. The front got dropped around 15mm which let me wind in a little more caster due to the LCA’s being at a level height now, no longer facing down. As for the rear, around 5mm or so as I want it to be raking! I have luckily, found another full set of AVS6 in black, which will be painted white to match these ones in 8Js which is an inch wider than my current ones. Super excited to get them and have matching wheels to use on the track.
Pretty excited to drive this car on the track in a few weeks time but there is still some work to do! x

If you remember a couple of months ago I posted this article on my new car. Selling my old KE70 was a good, but a bad decision. I had to do it in order to go to Japan, period. When I was in Japan I noticed how much I missed having a chassis that I could pretty much spend money on and play around with. Since returning I found a clean PS13 which has kept me busy these past few months. So here is a little update on it.
I purchased the car dead standard. Since then I have done a few simple, essential changes such as: 4.3 shimmed R200 diff, Silkroad RM/A8 coilovers front and rear, Driftworks caster arms, 16×7 +30 AVS6 front and rear tyre sizes being 205/50/16 up front and 205/55/16 on the rear filling the guards a little more. The engine has been left alone apart from removing all the emissions. Today I got a Exedy Heavy Duty clutch fitted from the guys at Workshop One who did a really clean and swift job not only installing the new clutch but refreshing the gearbox oil and checking over the car for me. I drove the car in at 8:30am and left by 11:00am. If you’re a local around the South East QLD area be sure to hit these guys up for any type of car related work. Next week I will be getting a full exhaust fitted up by a good friend of mine – Nathan Domorow who has just transitioned into full-time fabrication work. You can check his site out here: http://www.effsquared.com/. More updates on that next week! A few other little things such as GT-R swaybars and seats are going to be put in this week sometime but that is about as far as I’ll go, for now anyway. The car, exterior wise is going to remain how it is in this photo, lowered slightly with 16″ wheels. More updates coming soon x

My new car. Unfortunately I sold my KE70 just before I took off to Japan a few months ago. Here is my new project, 1994 Nissan PS13 Almighty. SR20DE 5 speed manual. I’ve had the car for just over a week now and finally got out this afternoon to take some photos of it while it is 100% standard. The car will receive basic mods such as coilovers, diff and wheels and a few personal touches here and there. All in good time! x
