Flat mate is going to that.

I'll be busy working on my own car getting it ready for another DECA day in Shepp in March. Unfortunatly that filled up VERY quickly. That one was organised by OZMazda.

Getting the rear bushes replaced tomorrow, along with S13 LCA's and R31 Caster rods.

Then i need to sort out an exhaust leak, fit the BOV and get a better muffler on and then get another tune.

The R31 Caster rods i got were adjustable... had to use the S13 LCA's completely stuffing up the wheel alignment.

So that i need to organise for tomorrow.

.1mm of toe, .1o cam , .1o caster makes your front end alignment out, so yeh i'm not surprised you will need one after doing rods n arms!

(yes i edited it, i'm half asleep leave me alone)

it went off !

eventually, as i didn't get the s12 finnished until 3am ! and scruitineering was in shep at 8am !

so much for sleep. i caught a hour on the way up luckily.

the day was full of exceitment, started out on the skidpan, moved to the street style mountainous stuff, and back to the pan for more exceitment, but i lost the skidpan battle's in the end.

1st battle i didn't take it out of 1st, and 2nd i ........ the clutch doing a huge slide and going for 3rd gear overheating the poor thing.

so my day was over, but good bunch of lads and i met gaget's housemate.

will go again in MAY.

Was the S13 the 180 running slicks that took out first place RWD and the white porches by any chance? Those looked mental!

i haven't seen any placeings or stats.

yep there were 2 white porche's, one stayed at the motel in the next room !

i saw many 180s, and silvia's and who would of guessed skylines.

p.s only a supra cefiro cressida, or gazelle stand out !

The guy that sponsored the event was shocked with the gazelle, i was a bit drunk at the time but vince says he was supportive of my choice. Going again in may ! hopefully we can move on to stage 2 and 3 mods.

I'm keen on s13 coil overs, my new fj20det, nothing less then s13 turbo brakes, a new radiator (to be on the safe side) and actually using a chromoly clutch i want to buy.

even considering body kits n making the gaz 1 colour. not shades of blue

yeh i know about the vids man, yeh vince with the grey 32 said you knew people there. and i didn't talk to any s13 owners, most were looking down on anything less, i overheard some asain's saying "why bother" but that car was the first one to bail out. so who knows who cares, went there to have fun, next time i'm going at it hard !

that was not a racial slur, i was simply refering to their appearance, as i am causcasian etc.

hell i didn't even hit any hats around the track (with exception to hats in the parking box) i think i hit 2.

after working till 4 am that morning then driving to shep, it went well, i have to sort out a few issue's before i return there in may. Although i did just buy another s13.
