# Franklin : Dude, what a great update!
I'm lovin the look of the 911, that thing is lookin neat!
Can't wait to see the next mods

Also that golf dude, i love that lil thang, maybe when i can go to the U.S of A and pick up somethin similar ;)

I'm stoked to see more, keep it up!
Thanks a lot fam! Next time you can drop by let me know ;)

# BigSmoke : You guys basically brewed a homemade GT3 RS there, which is a good thing :))
I mean it does have those intakes for NA engine and big wing taken from their race version so that definitely counts :D
Also tell me, how light Fuyao glass is? I got no money for Lexan obviously :))

I didn't expect that Regamasters can fit classic Golfs yet it did and blends gracefully! :D
And sad that the Evo is going out from the collection, but eh, here's hoping it'll see a better life :cheers:


(no don't worry I don't need another Evo for now)

That wing surely made it look like a GT3 RS! :D Now i just have to decide whether to tune its engine to GT3 or Turbo spec... :rolleyes:
Not sure about the windshield weight but the Fuyao unit is made to match the OEM, so i'm guessing it's the same. Yeah the Mk2 surprised me by how it looks with the Regamasters! Actually it had them for a while but i haven't properly shown it until now, it also has better suspension and tires so they really fit perfectly. :) Ah, i will rather not keep the Evo in the States anymore, i've had some thoughts to make it a track car but it's quite a rare example and i have the R32 anyway.

# Benny : I wish december would come faster to share the Supra future with everyone but for now everyone has to wait.....
Ziga thanks for those rims again they fit the car perfectly....
You're welcome mate, and after all the drag car will shed some weight over time so you might get some more parts lol.

# Soju : very solid updates! Regamasters on Golf looks really great :)
Thanks man, they surely do! Well they're meant for Japanese cars but because of that many people may not realize how good they can look on different kinds of rides :)

# RocketBunnyS13 : Rad! Hard to tell that the goodies on the 997 were ordered from AliExpress, but up close it looks like a bit of refinishing will improve the parts a lot haha. MK2 is looking solid! And of course it's really epic to see JDM legends like the JZA80 and the CP9A
Thanks mate! Well some of them were :P regardless, they will do the trick! Now i just have to decide in which color that refinish will be. Glad that you like the mk2 already haha, i still have to look around for some body parts though! The Evo 6 is going elsewhere soon but don't worry, there's still some JDM goodness hanging around :)

# Sleepin mOnkey : always riding the sickest cars ou there m8 that porsche must be pretty fun to throw arround
Sick cars are life, my man! I do believe it's a fun car but maybe not the best one to "throw around" as it's pretty much a supercar lol. Though the dumbass that i am might try it at some point :))

# Lagano :

Very German Update

ft. Chinese parts

While we were sorting out Benny's Lambo i also sourced some parts for the 997! First i only focused on replacing the broken parts in the front but then i decided to go all out and totally transform this thing, having a rebuilt title later on it will drop its value anyway so there's no point in keeping it original. A very noticable part here is this VIS Racing OEM Style carbon fiber hood i found at Andy's Auto Sport. If i have to get new body parts, why not save some weight while we're at it? ;)


And the weight reduction doesn't stop there! I managed to grab a couple of FRP front fenders, amazing what you can find on AliExpress. Well i only needed the left fender but OEM parts keep a very high price, even in used condition so aftermarket is the way to go on this build.


One of the best finds was this RUF front bumper! Also one of the most expensive ones but like i already said, that's the price of car brands like this. I really like those LEDs that came with it too, not sure how i'm gonna make that work with the car yet but i'll figure it out eventually.


Moving on to the rear, there's this huge GT3 Cup style spoiler that you may have seen peeking out in the last update. I've always loved the look of it, seeing it on 997 GT3 rally cars across Europe. Looks like it's adjustable too, that's quite a cool feature! With this and the carbon hood the 911 is definitely getting a track car look.


A GT3 rear bumper would be a great match to the wing but i ended up with one from a 997 Turbo. I was looking around the internet but most aftermarket bumpers were for the facelift models, if i got one of those i'd have to replace the taillights which i don't really like that much anyway. This Turbo one is even supposed to be OEM, however it was not in very good condition so i sent it to a local body shop to get it fixed and fill the gaps where those ugly bumperettes used to be. The result is a good looking Euro-spec bumper, they did one hell of a job! Now i just need a good exhaust system to match it.


After buying that bumper i remembered another part from a 997 Turbo, those nice side vents for improved air intake and engine cooling. Mine is a naturally aspirated Carrera S but i thought it would be a nice addition! They're from some no-name Chinese brand so i kinda doubted the quality but when i got them they were legit carbon fiber! However this exact 911 didn't have any side intakes so i dropped the car off at the body shop to make them fit perfectly and provide some more breathing room for that boxer. Despite the newer Porsches being water cooled it still needs some more Luftgekühlt :D


Exterior wise, i think i got a great package overall. Now the only parts left are some wheels, even if the stock ones look great but they don't suit the track vibe this car's about to have, and a windshield. I've looked at a few options already and again i'll have to get an aftermarket one, and probably from China again lol. I've looked through a few forums and videos and found out that a Fuyao glass is a good aftermarket alternative with OEM quality! That's actually a major brand which also makes windows for many car brands so i'm sure it will be a good choice. :)


Looks pretty much ready to go from the outside but there's still some more work to do. Now the frame is intact but the front left wheel seems a bit off, i'll have to look into that and maybe upgrade some suspension parts in the process. Well, the 911 being a world-famous sports car already has a pretty good suspension setup but you know, there's always room for improvements!


And here's the next German that i wanted to tell you about for a while now. I basically haven't touched it since the boys from Tokyo helped me out with it, but we've done some good progress at that time! Notice the different bucket seats, the Mk4 R ones were alright but i wanted something a bit more oldschool for a change. Luckily i found a guy in a local VW group who's building a Mk2 show car, we traded the front and rear seats and the dashboard with steering wheel. I still have the Mk4 door panels though, even if i'm aiming for a simpler build it's still good to keep some features like power windows, for example. :))


With the dashboard i also got this aftermarket steering wheel which suits the car well, not sure if it's legit but i don't mind really. Another mod there is the radio but again, it's cool to have a few modern things on board! But then again, i'd love the original radio with some oldschool casettes playing... B)


We also managed to make the transmission work! The Golf runs and drives just like it should, especially with the new KW coilovers and FM control arms we installed. Before that i also got a set of 225/45 R16 Yokohama Advan Neova AD08Rs on those Regamasters, the previous tires were a little too high profile. But since then, i guess i ran out of time to complete it because of the other projects, especially the 997 and both Supras lately. Don't worry though, there will be time for every car in this place, i'll at least clear the dust off the Mk2 for now. ;)


These two haven't changed a bit either but we've had some fun with them at the drag strip. The Supra feels very similar to the SC300, just with a little harder suspension and a few more horsepower. It definitely needs new tires though, launches were not so good as i thought. For now we're more focused on that one peeking on the left :)


And one more JDM legend not to forget about! After some discussion with Benny we decided that we will sell it on somewhere in Europe because the market for rally inspired cars there is on fire these days, and because it can't live on in America sadly. The front bumper fixing is still in progress, and the wheels need to be refurbished. It's the same issue here - too many projects. A few days ago we also checked its engine and replaced a few fluids to keep it like new on the inside just like it will be on the outside!


After we were done with assembling the 911 Benny suggested to go for a drive with his Supra, you know i couldn't say no to that. He threw on the plate from the Golf so maybe it will raise one or two eyebrows less than a Supra with mismatched parts and no registration would. We headed out through the outskirts of the town so we had less worries and more space to floor it. :D We were later joined by a few local friends who were quite impressed with it, especially by the fact that it comes from Europe. I mean, people here in the USA usually import a Japanese car from Japan after it turns 25 years old (maybe also earlier in some cases but i'll pass on that), i guess they just want that JDM feeling. A better reason is probably the price though, with the prices rising each year around the world you can still find a few cheap examples in Japan, due to higher availability. But if i have a choice i'd go for a left hand drive example, after all you drive that car on the road and having the steering wheel on the other side can be a problem, especially if you're going to a drive-thru! :)) Well the US Supras, modified or not, have reached insane prices so the guys have to find some sort of alternative.


If you look at it from behind where all the parts are in the same color, apart from the wing being in a different shade of silver, it's really a sight to admire, even in a pretty much OEM shape which Benny will hopefully keep. Suspension stayed stock too, we had a bit of body roll through the corners but the car still feels very responsive and agile thanks to the new OEM suspension parts. It could use an inch or 2 of lowering though, not gonna lie.


The Supra drives like a dream, now it just needs some exterior touches to become road worthy. I can't say the same for the 997 though, that one may need some extensive suspension work. Have a good one! ;)

Day 'n' night


As you can see Benny got the Lambo up and running! Now i hope he won't take the "Daily Exotics" idea too seriously... :)) Anyway, in the last few weeks i've mostly been working on my 2 Germans again, this time actually getting them on the road! I've also talked with Benny about the other projects, there's way too many ideas in both of our heads so we have a lot of things to clear out before working on them. But now that we got all the cars running, including his Supra here, any further work should run smoothly as there will be mostly exterior mods from this point on.


The other Supra is not changing much for now, it got a few little tweaks but i'm still learning its engine and suspension setup and wondering how to improve anything. Before even getting my hands on it i knew that will be a hard task cause this is a top notch street car that i stole was really lucky to get. I was really shocked by its performance from the few drag strip runs i've done with it, i better get used to it quickly if i want to make the most out of this beast.


The Golf got the so called big bumpers again, fortunately these were still in storage from when we transformed this thing back in 2016. They fit way better with the wheels that are on now, it all makes it look a bit more 90's unlike the small bumpers and BBS wheels that are now on the AE86. I dropped them at the nearby paint shop to get them color matched. Now the parts that used to be unpainted plastic are matching too, and that makes the whole car look much more neat! The wheels fit so nicely too, the BBS were more flush with the fenders with the previous suspension setup but i prefer this kind of stance where it looks on point and can still be driven hard.


p e r f e c t  f i t m e n t



I always aim for the right stance, be it just a small 80's hatch, an oldschool muscle car or even a supercar. It depends on each car's purpose but i try my best!


The 911 got just the same treatment now, but here i decided to go with a proper piece of equipment. I got a Bilstein DampTronic coilover kit, very similar to the GT3 suspension which was exactly what i wanted. It includes the PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) which was a standard feature on Carrera S models, with these coilovers i can further adjust the ride height and stiffness. And Sport mode should be much better now! ;)


Before that i replaced the front left control arm assembly because i noticed that was damaged from the crash. Actually it could be fixed but i rather replaced it, with this kind of car it's really important to do stuff carefully when it comes to handling. Next i got a complete set of bushings for both front and rear suspension, and for the rear subframe i got solid ones! I really took my time to do the research on this one, and i found out that solid bushings keep the rear subframe in position, making the steering more predictable. For the control arms i got a set from Powerflex, the front ones are even camber adjustable! They're from polyurethane unlike the rear ones but still way tougher and stiffer than the usual rubber, they should last forever and provide great handling. Last but not least are H&R front and rear sway bars, these should keep the 997 straight up, no matter how sharp the corner.


Another major part here is this exhaust system from Fabspeed Motorsport. It's an X-pipe system that produces a really aggressive tone, and that would be pretty obvious since i picked the catless option which was more affordable and it allows higher horsepower gains. Win-win situation! :bananajump: Maybe it's not the best to run it with a stock engine but that will get upgrades soon enough.


997 was then ready to roll! Well, not before installing a brand new windshield. Unless i wanted to be like Jay Kay in the Cosmic Girl music video with his Diablo SE30. :)) Which is, by the way, also a great song to play while driving on some nice twisty roads on the countryside, or in my case, taking the 911 for a test drive around town. Anyway, i got that sorted out at Trophy Auto Glass which was just a few blocks away. They got the Fuyao windshield that i ordered for them and installed it perfectly, top quality just like from the factory. Definitely a shop to remember, i even got a 10% discount! And the drive is just incredible, in theory it should be just like a GT3 or even better!


The next day i drove my Chevelle to work but on the way back i heard a really bad sounding noise in the front. I stopped to check if anything's broken but i didn't see anything, apart from all the smoke coming from the exhaust. Then i remembered the LS2 was running close to 1000hp with the help of twin turbos from eBay. Yep, that must've gone wrong now. It was still running though so i drove it back to the garage very slowly.


After that i was just chilling with Ben for the day, looking at all the cars and thinking what to work on later. He's really excited about his Supra project, he told me that he's going for an OEM+ style but the amount of mods is increasing so i'm not so sure about that anymore! The BBS LM wheels do look beautiful on it but i keep getting second thoughts from when i test fitted them on the GTR. However Nismo wheels are made just for it so i guess they're the best choice.


As the day turned into night we heard some intense V8 noises passing by quite a few times, then i decided to head outside and wait for their next run and prepare the drag Supra to maybe check them out from up close. After not even a minute, a fair amount of muscle flew by again so i locked the place up, got in the Supra with Benny and floored it!!!


I could barely keep up as we just took off, i still managed to catch one mean looking Camaro at the start of the highway though. We then had a few roll races, we started pretty much the same but i pulled away from him in a few seconds.


That was not the case with this Mustang! I was barely ahead of him, i could hear its supercharger whine despite all the wind and the 2JZ screaming next to it. Both me and Ben were going crazy while we were passing it inch by inch haha. The Foxbody is pretty lightweight so it can be a great drag car, and this one didn't look like it had a chance against the Supra but i was almost wrong!


Well, that was exciting. After getting some sleep from all that racing i took the Mk2 for a drive to get something to eat from the store. SR20 sounds quite interesting with the new Remus muffler, not too loud, not too silent, just right for a fun little car like this.


I did a small change under the hood too, the intake lacked an air filter so i took the HKS filter that used to be on the SC300's turbo and secured it in place with a couple of clamps. The foam in it was quite old and worn out so i replaced it, also fits very nicely with the red cylinder head cover!


I just love this thing! Like i probably already said at some point, this car is super fun despite all the ultra powerful turbocharged beasts out there. Small FWD hatchbacks used to be the only cars i could drive a few years ago, so this surely reminds me of the old days. Though even a NA 2 liter was a huge thing then...


When i got back, someone on Facebook sent me this, with a caption "This was one hell of a run! You down for some more?". It was that same Camaro! Don't know how he found me, i guess some things are just kept secret. And i think i don't have to tell you how i responded. :P I've been looking forward to some more driving with the Supra to get used to it, well i drove the SC300 before but there are still some differences. I better replace the rear tires if i'm going to do some launches though, otherwise 1300hp won't do that much.

Dudeeeeeeee
I'm lovin the way that you are doing with the 911, that car will be a monster!
Also, ¿the chevelle blew the turbos? damnnnn, that looks fun, but now no moar chinese spinny wang gang turbskies
By the way, your JZ team is awesome, i'm saying it too, you stole that goddamn supra! And that sc300 is nuts!
And that golf, dudeeee, that car looks so fun! Maybe when i will go to US of A i will pick something interesting, ehehehehe

God I'd like to drive the homemade GT3 boi, must be a potential car! Hell, you might as well enter a sportscar racing championship with that :)) It might haven't yet getting close to a Carrera Cup spec but surely could give the GT3 and GT3RS road car some good beating I reckon ;)

Is the Golf still FWD? Either way it reminds me of Nissan Pulsar, quite a potent but underrated car. And since it's a Golf, I'd like to drive it as well! :D

And BOI I don't usually approve street racing but the night drag sesh must have been a fun and intense times, even turning into a three-car race! :))
Still following the damn train since 1992

You might just do that! ;) It definitely has a lot of potential but some of it's still to be (NFS Porsche) unleashed. I don't know if there's any specific event like that around here but i'll have to try it on the track sometime! Yeah i didn't really wanna take the Supra on the street either but i was way too curious and had to take a look what that was all about lol. See ya soon!

# Soju : That Porsche looks like it'll be one hell of a monster soon :)
It's slowly turning into one! Just needs some more grunt actually, but certain performance parts for performance cars are pretty hard to get, not to mention the price!

Whats up guys, its time for a mega update from my side and reveal some of the purchases we did 2 to 3 months ago but a certain somebody forgot to post any pictures........

Lets kick it of with me kicking all the cars not spotlighted in this update outside of the garage hehehe..... and here is a family photo.....


Say cheese :D


First of all, let me introduce to our new shop truck since the last one went to Japan with @BigSmoke. This is a 2011 Ford F150 Raptor with 75 000 miles on the clock and yet again with a salvage title........ Owner went jumping with it, and on a landing he lost control and smashed in to a tree with the front left side, the car sold out to us on copart for V$10 000, it took us about a month and a half to fix it and we bought a 2nd hand trailer for V$3000, and additional V$2000 to repair it and now its our errand boy....


So lets jump over the trailer to the next baby which happends to be my daily car from today.....

The bull looks fresh and its ready to go,


We didn't do any changes on the Aventador except getting it registered and obtaining a rebuilt title for it.......


Lagano and I went to the DMV for the inspection, they were happy with all the repairs we did, we snatched the Rebuilt title and registered it ASAP.....
The only cost here was the Licence Plate V$50 hehe but it fits it....
Now the only thing left for the bull to do is tandem daily drive with the 911 from Lagano.



That is all for the Bull for today.......


Next up is the.......


Now we will talk about the Skyline GTR R33 for a while.....

So the car went around the world and seen more places than I did but what can you do hehe.
Lets kick this of with a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE SHOUTOUT TO @NIATROSS for rebuild me the baby NISMO RB26, as I updated a while go about everything that you need to know about this engine.

I talked with @BigSmoke to get me some parts for the R33 and to talk with Niatross about putting the parts in the car.... So first of all you will notice the S3 Projector headlights, factory GTR grill and the N1 Lip for the Hood. All those parts were installed by BigSmoke in Japan, and went on with selling them to compensate the cost..... I ended up paying him just V$350 how much he was short from compensation....

Oh yea I almost forgot that he replace the rear trim to the S1 to match the indicator glass on the tail lights.....

The next update that I did on the car might make it haunted.......
A friend of lagano and me who races with us a lot, saw a drag racing crash in texas in which the driver/owner had died and told us that his wife is selling/parting out the car.... The car in question was an 1998 Ford Mustang, but it was almost impossible to identify the car to that name from the carsh..... We ended up buying the REICARO full carbon racing seats from her for V$500 and we got a set of TAKATA harnesses to strap us tight....

I didn't wanned to lose the back seats cause I like to take people for a fast lap so we made a support on the floor and anchored them to the floor.
The rear passenger will have less leg room now but at least he will be able to get in the car for a hot lap hehe....


I own this car for 2 years now and its so unusual to see it finaly LHD or to drive it like that, whenever I am entering the car I end up going to the passenger side now which used to be the driver side before....



That was it on this R33 update more is to come in the future....



I am always excited for SEMA.....


So the G35 is going realy well, we strapped the car, repaired all the crash damage and we finished the suspenssion instalation.....
I had a real need to finish off the suspenssion so that we can now focus on the exterior since this car is always getting me confused so I don't know what to look or expect!!!!!


We ended up taking all of the suspenssion arms from a salvasge/partout 2006 R35 for just V$650, then we went for TEIN Type N1 Coilovers and we dropped the height drasticly as per laganos wish.... The coils costed us V$1520 and then we returned to our good friend and sponsor for this build BREMBO!!!!!!!!!
We bought the GT-R system brakes, 350mm 4 piston in the front and 380mm 6 piston in the back for V$5500 with a huge discount from Brembo cause they are our sponsor.... For the rims we went with ROTIFORM BLQ, 19X8.5 in the front and 20x10 in the back and wrapped them in Michelin Pilot tires...
This upgrade costed us V$2500


For now that is where we will stop on the G35, while we decide what to get next and how the car will look when its finished.....


Okay I will not stall it anymore since all of you saw it there is no point in dragging it as the last update for today.....

The 370 000 KM Toyota Supra A80


It has been a long journey for this Supra but the light at the end of the tunnel is almost visible......

This is the 2nd to last update for it which means there is only one more small change on it to be done which will be done around new year. And no its not an ENGINE SWAP or getting it TT.....

But lets kick it with paint correction...

We have painted every single new part except the TRD front lip in to the supra color and then with a lot of polishing returned the shine to the color of the body as well


The only thing on the front that got changed is the front quarter panels and the HID headlights.....

The front fenders are from RIDOX and they are replica of Toyotas TRD fenders, while the HID headlights are genuine and they came of the Drag Supra....
The fenders costed me V$550, Headlights V$0....

Now we go to the back......

Here we did change quite a bit, first of all lets start with the RIDOX rear diffuser and rear canards which costed me V$600,
and LAMBORGHINI style LED tail lights by Car Shop Glow for V$1500.....


We took the car for a spin and to see how people will look at it and it was a huge success....


So here it is the last update for the day, the car that is peeking between the trailer and the bed of the RAPTOR....

Who ever thought that was an HONDA S2000 was CORRECT!!!!!!
ITS MY FIRST HONDA S2000 YUPIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!


It is a 2004 Honda S2000 with 189,382 miles on the clock


The was owned by a ACURA dealer since the car was brand new and it had a lot of action in its first 6 years.....Then the car went in to passive mod due to the owners health and family issues and it kept staying in the garage more and more.


6 months ago something had changed and he wanted his S2K on the road again, so he found a body shop which would restore the body and he would take the car to the ACURA mechanichs to overhaull the engine, but all his dreams sunk to the bottom of the ocean when he heard that 2 months ago the guy in charge to repair the body waS A YOUNGSTER and he never drove an S2K and he really wanned to. So he took it for a test drive and he went straight full throttle, then as he said something snapped in the rear the car spun out and with speed of 102 mph he hit a curb with the rear right wheel....


The whole story I learned from the real owner who I met when I picked up the car and he politely asked me when the car is compleated to give him a ride in it and I told him when the car is finished I will come to your house give you the keys so you go for a ride in it, the car was taken care off untill it went to the body shop....


There is a lot of small dings and dangs here and there but its nothing too much since the car owes me just a little over V$2500...



Now all I have to do is put Laganos cars back in the shop and run for my life before he kills me hehehe......

Oh my god that Raptor is HUUUUUUUUGE and I love it! Should be able to haul stuff much better than the Silverado, also looks savage with that paint scheme :D

Um, can I have a ride inside the Lambo please? Should be a bliss to drive around the city inside it :D
Also I'm quite honoured to be able to lay my hands and work on the R33, it's such a majestic thing! (even though basically it almost ade me bankrupt during summer :)) )

The Supra looks ready to fight and flight, wonder what's next for it :D

Also what's the gameplan for the G35 and S2K? Given that it's in your hands, I expect bonkers and mad stuff :cheers:

Street Fighters





Hello y'all, Edo(BigSmoke) here! :D

You might wonder why I'm writing an update here instead of my own thread, as you all might know me from there. Well, as you saw on my last update, Benny invited me for another month at the Side to Side garage, thus I'm running at the Land of Free once more. At the moment Benny and Ziga(Lagano) got quite exhausted and basically wasted from what happened some time ago, so I was tasked to take the wheel for this one :D Anyways, without any further ado, let's take a delve on what happened. All I can say is that was one of the most intense and fun nights I've ever experienced...........

As the sun goes down, Benny decided to take his beloved R33 for a spin on the highway to test all the Nismo goodies installed by me and Muza(Niatross) as he had explained in the latest update, particularly on the engine side. This skunkworks project took the R33 literally around the world, as well as uhhh.....draining my wallet for half a summer. Thankfully, Benny allowed me to sell anything that has been removed from it and in the end also donated some cash to rebalance my wallet. Back to the highway run, Benny had Ziga on the passenger seat, as well as me and Soju(well, Soju) at the back seat. The legroom wasn't much and due to my size, I had a difficulty on getting into the back seat :)) But because the R33 is a grand tourer, I did expect this.

Nevertheless, that night we roll into the highway that connects Ardmore, OK with Dallas, TX. Along the way, we stopped at a highway service center, where Benny grabbed some cans of lagers and various beers as well as some packs of cigs, Ziga grabbed some bottles of vodkas, Soju grabbed some cans of beers as well and I bought myself.....some cans of Arizona Iced Tea. Well that's what I wanted for the night, to be drank while listening to various vaporware tracks.

As we continued our gentle and flowing cruise, we continued our ride. Traffic was rather quiet so we had the chance to flex the power of the R33 at anytime Benny wanted to. But he didn't do it until some time later, where we heard a huge rumble of engines and suddenly bright lights came from our back..........

"What's that?" I asked in a rather worried tone.
"Oh looks like we've got ourselves another street race!" Ziga replied in full excitement. "Let me see what's running....."

A red car passes by in speed and full treble. "A Civic sedan, kinda easy", said Ziga.

A yellow car passes by in a high turbo pitch. "Is that an Evo?" I asked as I catched a bit of it's glimpse. "Yup, an Evo 8. Now that's a good challenger", Ziga confirmed my sights.

Another red car passes by, this time in a loud rumble. "A Mustang?" I asked again. "No, even better, we got ourselves a Shelby!" Ziga answered me in even more excitement.

"Shall we try to catch them boys?" Ben asked us, eager to jump into the ensuing race.
"It's all your call, bossman, but this should be fun" Soju agrees to join the fun.
"Right then, hit it!" Ziga commands Benny to catch the street racers.
"TALLY HO BOIS YAAAAAAH!!" I shouted in excitement as Benny fully floors the R33 into the dark night.

It took us some time to shed off the gap between us and the pack of street racers, but eventually we managed to catch them! And to our hollering excitement, we got and passed the Shelby first!

"We got the snake bois! WE GOT THE SNAKE ALIVE!" I shouted in excitement as we got past the Shelby.
"One down, two to go! Keep on running!" Ziga informed to Benny as we sped off to catch the Evo.

Some time later, Benny caught the Evo. But the Evo turned out to be able to dish a much longer stronghold against us compared to the Shelby. It took us much longer time to get past the Evo, and even then the Evo was still able to snuck to our backs. I volunteered to watch our backs, and after a lengthy battle Benny were able to shake the Evo from our tail.

The battle was so intense and fast it actually saved us some time for catching up with the Civic! :)) We passed him relatively easy and quick, like scoring a stealth kill in video games.

Normally, I don't approve street racing as not only we could get a better place to race on, it's obviously dangerous. But of course I understand the appeal behind the street racing scene, and that night's race has proven my assumption true. The adrenaline rush, the ability to share the joy to your friends, the informality of just about everything, the urge to challenge yourself in tight environtments.......they're something that rubs you off for a long time and became quite addictive as well.

As we came close to the vicinity of Dallas, we decided to slow down and prepare ourself for a returning point to Ardmore so as not to catch too much attention, mainly from the cops......but then the Evo and Shelby flashed their lights and came to our sides. As they got our sides locked in, the Shelby's driver rolled down the window and shouted to us:"Let's stop and talk for a while, I'd like to know your ride!". On the other side of the R33, the Evo's passenger also rolled down the window, raising a thumbs up and shouted "Cool ride!". After ensuring myself and Soju that everything will be okay, Ziga told Benny to pull over with them on a road shoulder.

Fortunately, they were indeed inviting us for some nice chatter, so Ziga had us out from the car and drinks were handed as we talk about our cars and of course the race we undertake earlier. The Evo was fully loaded with various engine mods and also that bodykit, which, due to all excitement form the earlier race, I'm not sure I can ID correctly. And of course, after Benny introduces us as fellow Evo owners(and classic Evos at that!), the talk was flowing like a waterfall. The Evo 8 owner also appreciated that I raced my Evo 3 as a time attack and daily! :D Turns out he race in autocross events at times with said Evo 8.


The Shelby was indeed a legit Shelby! Not much has been done to it, only some bolt-on engine mods and seemingly minor visual mods. Nevertheless, being a Shelby, it's still outrageously quick as hell. This thing still looks savage though, as all Shelby should be! Hearing it roaring in the middle of dark night was quite a spiritual experience.

Some time later, we heard a loud chunter of a boxer engine. "Ah, here comes my friend!" Said the Evo driver. Moments later, a carbon-clad Subie GRB pulls into the shoulder as well. And boy we were in for a surprise! After the Shelby driver introduced us to the Subie driver and ensured him that we are good guys, as well as telling to him what happened earlier.

The Subie driver, as expected, was a rallycross and time attack fan, and hilariously true to the stereotypes, carries a vape on his hands :)) He's a great guy though, quite kind to let us have a walkthrough around his car. Turns out that's not just a carbon wrap donned by the Subie, but indeed a full carbon body setup! He has also threw alot of money for just about everything else, including loads of upgrae pack from Crawford Performance, the same company that prepare Ken Block's Subie GRB for Gymkhana Two appearance, as well as Rally America duties a decade ago before he made a switch to Ford. All in all, this is an all-rounder package that mustered a whopping 960 BHP, basically the most powerful between the bunch. Imagine if we faced this Subie earlier........



We talked through the night and had a great and lit banter until eventually Benny ran out of cigs and dawn came. After exchanging our social media contacts, as well as the Art of Wheels and Opposite Style shop contact, all of us parted ways and we made our way back to Ardmore. I'm not sure if Ziga and Benny would do this again, but eh, I guess I have to prepare myself for moments like this for some time :))


Anyways that closes my guest update on this thread, and thus monetary status updates will still be held by either Ziga or Benny when normal service resumes. See you all some time later soon......BigSmoke signing off ;)

That was one hell of a night indeed my man! Thanks for the nice coverage. ;) The Subaru was just unbelievable, i don't think even my R32 could keep up with it because of all the weight reduction! However Ben's R33 used to have a way more powerful engine setup so who knows... :rolleyes:


Before all that madness though, i still had to pick the guys up at the airport in Dallas. It's been a while since i've last seen them (but actually not that long considering they're all the way from Japan and Korea) so i wanted to give them a proper welcome. That said, i dropped by the local used car dealer to get a temporary plate for the 997 since it's not completely ready for the road yet. I still have some changes in mind but i also wanna drive it and get used to it, it's a whole different kind of machine compared to the other ones.


Going from Ardmore to Dallas, i drove on the very same highway that we raced on today! Not that fast though, obviously. :P Still, it's very capable on the highway, a Carrera S can reach almost 200 mph!


After around 60 more miles of highway i got to Dallas. I've been there a few times so fortunately i had no problem navigating through the city and going to the airport. Its parking lot, however, was a bit of a hassle, i probably did a few laps around it to find a free spot lol.


Eventually i found a bit less occupied part of the lot and waited for Yuan and Soju since i didn't know their exact time of arrival.


Anywhere i go, i always look around for any nice cars to keep the trip interesting! I had high hopes on the airport here but there wasn't really much to see, apart from a few high-end sedans. Understandable, since they have to put their luggage somewhere, right? :))


That got me wondering if i should get myself something more practical for once, and this Tesla here would actually be a great choice because i couldn't really make any crazy mods to it. But then again, i'd miss shifting gears and engine sounds, even if it's a daily it must be fun to drive for me! Well the accelerations it's capable of would surely be fun in a way, so i might consider it one day.


I had nothing to do for a while so i did a bit of a photoshoot, even if the 911 is not done yet at all.






Finally, i got a call from Smoke telling me that him and Soju have landed. So i headed out to the terminal to meet them, then followed a wave of hugs and brofists. We had a few snacks and drinks at the nearby shop and while going back to the car we got lost a bit. Well, the airport itself is just huge so it can be hard to keep track where you're going. When we managed to get back i jokingly opened the trunk to get the luggage in there, because, y'know, it's a Porsche. :)) Then i noticed that the wing almost hit the rear window but if it was made for the GT3s, of course that wouldn't happen. We had a look at the engine too, not much to see apart from the aftermarket exhaust but i guess its stock engine is quite impressive already. Anyway, we all managed to get in, Soju being in the back seat because they don't call Edo "Big Smoke" for nothing. :P Well Soju told me he's used to small back seats anyway.


They were really excited about the 911, i knew it would be a nice surprise! :D So i drove around downtown Dallas for a while, turning quite a few heads. Well it sounds really aggressive, maybe even too loud for the city streets haha. Or maybe it was all the mismatched parts, i believe seeing a 911 driving in this state is pretty much impossible since 911s are usually modified only by professionals!


Despite not being completely the way i want yet, i love it so much already. It drives like a proper supercar! Like i've said a few times, however, it just lacks a bit of power to be called that. On the way back we had a whole lot of stuff to talk about, mostly the recent drift event at Ebisu they both attended, together with some more friends. Soju was really happy he could borrow my S14, after all it used to be his so i was also happy for him to have a beautiful nostalgic experience. They were both getting a bit sleepy when we got back to Oklahoma, they must've been really exhausted from all the shenanigans in Japan and then flying over here.


Also check Soju's and Big Smoke's thread to stay updated about their trip! :)

How do you even stuff in two fully grown men with luggage in a 911, Soju must have been cramped in those rear seats.

Also really keen on those three drivers, I wish I was there to meet em.

#WrenchEveryDay



Huh it was a long week, but thanks to my friends we pulled of some serious work :D

As you all know in the last week we had 3 arrivals, 2 of those 3 arrivals were my best mates @SoJu and @BigSmoke.
The 3rd arrival was a Salvage title, crashed 2004 Honda S2K with ~190k km on the clock.....


The next morning after the purchase we had a breakfast in a nearby family restoraunt (cause none of us knows to cook xD), I had a nice morning cup of coffee cause I actualy don't do breakfasts, Ziga had some croissants, SoJu decided to go with a sweet breakfast like Ziga so he ordered some cakes and a cup of tea, meanwhile Biggie made it up for all of us... He ordered a double Egg Omlet, 5 pancakes, large coke and a cup of coffee (Its more expencive to feed Biggie then to fuel my aventador hehehehe).

While smoking, Biggie looked at me and asked me the plans for that day, I told him that I need a place to store the S2K untill we finish the G35 cause it is our SEMA build and the SEMA dates are fixed we can not move them so S2K goes to the storage, and also two guys can't build 2 cars at the same time with that amount of work left to be done to the G35........

SoJu and Biggie then told us : "Hey, you got two of your best friends here and you don't wanna ask us for help, hell no we are gonna help you to finish the S2K and then we will jump on the G35"

Ziga said, that we need to do an assessment of the damage on the car and then decide when we can start working on it.

We finished the breakfast went out and I said to the guys : "Here is the deal, I will take SoJu with me in the Aventador and we will go and look for a garage to rent, you two go get the S2K loaded on the trailer and wait for us to call you".....


Me and SoJu found a ex-mechanic garage that we rented for 10 days and it was 8 miles away from our shop but it was ok cause the rent was low so we took it, called Ziga and Biggie to bring the S2K to the address that we texted them......

We stripped down the car in that day and found everything that was damaged and here is the full list (Note all the damage is on the right side of the car) :
    Control arm
    Tie rod
    Axel
    Shock absorber
    Spring
    Stabilizer
    All bushings
    Brake lines
    Brake disc
    Front bumper mounts
    Hood latch
    Front shock absrobers don't look promising

Day #2

After a good night of sleep, we went back to work, this time me and SoJu took the car to Media blaster and Ziga with Biggie was left in the shop to follow my shopping list that I made them.
Ah I forgot to mention to you guys, we decided to do the body work first and then start playing with all of the suspenssion components.


The media blaster had finished blasting the car while me and SoJu had lunch, we went back picked it up and paid V$500 for the blasting........

In the meanwhile Ziga and Edo instead to use the internet they searched Junk yards across our living area and they managed to find most of the items from the list but some of the items they had to buy from EBay......

We had luck that the crash took most of the damage to the suspension components and not so much to the body, but there was a huge amount of non expected rust in the front part of the car which drasticly damaged the stability and rigidity of the front end, so we ended up buying a bit of metal piping to reinforce all the damage there.

On day 3 I kicked all 3 of them from the garage, told them not to be disturbed in the next couple days.......


Day #6

S2K Body is finished.....

Whoops I went way ahead there lol, on day #4 I towed the S2K to da body shop and used their booth to paint the S2K, towed the car back to the garage on Day #5 and left the guys with the car to install the old interior in to the car while I painted all the body parts.

And finaly some pictures of the car :



The front end rust that I told you about destroyed 60% metal on the front so we bought a bit of sheet metal and metal piping and started fabricating a tubilar structure in there, and we got a strut bar as well to keep things tight.....


And here are all the new body part additions that I made a list for Ziga


Varis side skirt blades, varis side skirt extensions, varis rear diffuser and they are all out of carbon fiber (according to the EBay add) those parts costed us V$750, then comes the AP1 Euro tail lights which I traded for my genuine AP1 Stockies, Edo and SoJu opened the headlights and replaced the amber indicator glass with a clear one for V$25.
If you look at the front bumper it looks normal due to Ziga and me making new bumper mounts and we also repaired the hood latch so now everything on the front is evenly gaped, aslo if you look at the bottom of the bumper you can see the AP1 lip that they found on a junk yard for V$75 and last but not least they got me a trunk lip spoiler and AP2 muffler for V$350 from another junk yard.....





The car has apsolutly no suspension parts on it, and the engine is sitting in the side of the shop. The engine will go back in tomorrow and then I will hand the project in to SoJu's hands for the runing gear cause he is more professional then me for what we are about to do.....

God bless jack stands



Now finaly I can take some rest, in the past 4 days I slept 10h.......


Arrived at the house, took a shower and was about to kiss my bed when I got a phone call from Edo asking me to borrow the R33 keys and go for a drive and I told him : "When you open the key control box 1st key on the left middle row is the key take it and come pick me up from the house" cause I knew that they would not let me to sleep hehe.....

5 Minutes later phone ringing again ...... ~Incoming call EDO~,
"Yea bro, whats up......."
"Hey Beny the key you told me to take is the Aventador key"
"Just come and pick me up will you please"

10 Minutes later I am smoking in front of the house when I hear the bull comming.
I entered the car and told Edo take me to the shop ASAP step on it.....

Edo smiled like a baby while flooring the Aventador and all the way to the shop he repeated the same sentence : "I can not F****ng belive"

We arrived at the shop, I went to the key control box took the R33 keys and said SoJu you go with Edo in the Aventador and now you will drive it, Ziga you are comming with me......


I took the guys for a nice afternoon at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit again.



I did couple laps in the R33 to try the new setup properly, then I stopped for a brake and to check the tire pressure on the R33


We had a great time at the track, Edo and SoJu enjoyed them self AF and then I wanned to heat up the friendship a little bit.....

I told them : "Edo and SoJu both of you will do a 2 lap race in the Aventador against Ziga in the R33 and I will just watch your driving :D"


So we went off and the first lap we could clearly see how fast the Aventador realy is, the R33 was and still is fast but that thing is another way of fast, you don't do any sacrifises in it to go 300km/h like you would in the R33 or my old R34 but it was lovely to see them go full out on the track....


Sadly due to me beeing way to tired from the S2K work, I fall a sleep on the big straight in the 2nd lap and I overslept the 2nd race as well....
When we arrived home Ziga woke me up and said, "I tried my best to beat those 2 and not to wake you up at the same time. Thank you for all the fun we had today."

Ziga will let you know who won cause I was busy sleeping hehhe

SEMA HERE WE COME!!!!


As the title says we are getting closer and closer to the SEMA deadline, but also the car is getting more and more parts every days!!!!!!

So 5 days ago when I closed my self in the garage to work on the S2K body, SoJu, Edo and Ziga worked on the G35, installing some of the parts that have arrived from some of our sponsors

First things first, I pronounce you Car and Engine, you may rev the Engine now

A while ago we pulled out the S85B50 from the E34, sealed the engine from the outside effects and kept it stored safely, the trio inspected the engine bay and they fabricated engine mounts that would support the beast, also they had to cut the firewall a bit and the fenders but nothing too scary.....


I have to say a JOB WELL DONE!!!!, I definetly couln't install it so beautiful like that, I am glad that I had SoJu and Edo to help us out, but the pain doesn't end there hehe sadly.....

Our friends for Car Shop Glow helped us out by repairing the original head and tail lights, also they blacked out the headlights and tinted the tail lights, CSG also helped us out with a window tint for our rear windows and rear windshield.

Also all the body parts from our sponsor Jessys Auto Body Shop have arrived but only the front fenders and side skirts were installed for now cause we still need to fiddle with the engine and the exhaust pipe since we don't have any right now......


There is still a lot left to do for this G35 to be compleat but we are almost there......

As far as paint goes, the paint is in decent condition there is no rust what so ever, all the crash damage has been replaced and there is absolutly no need to repaint the car, but there comes a problem both me and Ziga don't like the look of this gay..... Whoops I mean gray color so we will change it when we finish all the body work........
But by the time that we are finished with it probably we won't have enough time to disassemble the car, media blast it and paint so what we will do is take the car to Protective Film Solutions in Los Angeles, I used to work with them on some parts for the R34 and R33, they will wrap the G35 in the color and design we like in a record time.....

That is all updates on the G35, We are expecting the car to start runing tomorrow, latest day after tomorrow, get all body panels on there and test drive it cause the suspenssion is still an unknown to us and we need to get this engine used to this car.......

FRANKLIN came with a 40Ft truck full of gifts!!!!!!!


I will just copy paste this from @Franklin, the list everything that came in the boxes

"Found a 6266 Turbo kit, front facing intake, clutch kit, 1000cc injectors, fuel pump and pressure regulator, AEM Infinity ECU and a letter*
Letter : Hi Benny! How is it going? Frank told us about all of your projects, specially about your High mileage Supra project,
and we wanted to hook you up with parts, over 10k $ of parts for your project! But don't worry for the cash,
this is our gift and our support for this special project, hopefully this car will be kicking ass in no time!
Enjoy it!"

- SLP HQ


I would like to thank Franklin and SLP for the gifts and the support that they are giving to my high milage hero.....

First things first, I talked with SoJu who is my 2JZ mentor and the only guy except me and Ziga that lays his hands on my Supra hehe,

Benny : Hey Lee, can we slap all these parts on to my stock block??

Lee : Don't worry, OEM block is durable, and it will hold the amount of HP you are throwing at it"


So the lead on this project saw SoJu and we all did as he says so here it goes.....

First we had to took out the pipes and the manifold. And took out the transmission to replace the clutch kit as well

So one crew was doing the engine stuff while the other was on the transmission.....

SoJu, Edo and Franklin worked on the engine to install the turbo kit, while me and Ziga worked on the clutch kit replacement, cause that was the only part which we could do properly without fcking things up.....


We managed to make everything fit, created mounts for the intercooler, and had some more fabricating to do but all in all it fits perfectly, but the best thing is, it sounds perfect as well......







All in all one day well spent, we had a lot of fun working on the supra, the build was suposed to come as free from all the support but in the end it costed me 2 24 packs of redbull, damn SoJu drinks them a lot hehe!!!!! P.S. No I didn't took out Edo for a meal cause he would spent all my budget fund on No9's


THE RUNAWAY CHILD



Last night we had a surprisse visit from @Parker, he came around to say hi to our gests and to talk with me in private.....

Benny : Whats up bro?

Parker : "Hey man I am pretty busy with shit so I can not take car of this car anymore, so I am returning it to you, all the title papers are inside and ready for a transfer"

Benny : "Well, can I help you with something????? BTW NP, thank you for taking good care of it till now"

Parker : "Nah, its nothing serious just time consuming"



The R34 came back as it left,just now I need to get it registered on my name again and slap some plates on it.....




9000RPM AGAIN!!!!!





A small task on the S2K build was compleated, the F20C is back in the car and ready to rev to that magical 9000RPM redline again!!!!!!!

The M5 V10 was an ultra heavy boi to lift up but boi we did it! Here's for the next steps of the G35 build :cheers:

Also quite honoured to be able to work on the Supra and more importantly, drive your Lambo. It's a full-on joy and miracle to drive :D

AND THE R34 COMES HOME! :bananajump:

Yeah the V10 looks just epic in there! Thanks for helping to stuff it in haha, it would take forever without you boys! I kinda missed that R34 too, despite the 32 and 33 still being here lol.

Woah that would be awesome! I appreciate that :)

All hands on deck


Despite being overloaded with project cars the boys are really enjoying their time here! We're all working particularly on the SEMA build and the progress really shows that. The S85 in it is already running, it just needs an exhaust system to achieve that F1 sound the E60 M5 has, but we'll sort that out after it gets a bodykit.


Speaking about exhaust, the Chevelle got these custom longtube headers. Yeah, that means the LS2 is all motor now, even if i really enjoyed the insanely powerful twin turbo setup it just wasn't that reliable and the car was hard to tame. I guess i'll go for a cruiser/show car way from now on, it's a pretty rare car to throw around like i did too! Though the fact that i liked exactly that was really entertaining for the most part of driving it. After i threw on the air filter left over from the turbos the LS looked ready to go but i doubt everything is alright in there, the turbos are done for but something else might've got damaged in the process. I'll have to give it a proper check-up or maybe even rebuild the whole thing, we'll see.


I also tried different wheels on it! I got these HREs in Japan last year, they were quite pricey but a great deal nonetheless. I know i would use them on some build eventually, the Scaras looked really good on the Chevelle too but those have gone through some drifts, even if they were not intended for that purpose at all. Like i said earlier, the Chevelle has more of a cruiser vibe now so these wheels are less aggressive looking and really fit the said vibe.


It should be great to cruise together with Benny's Supra, they might even have a similar power output. I don't usually like modernizing old cars but these taillights are a really cool mod! Especially when you look at the Aventador next to it...


Who would've thought that a design feature from a 2010's Lamborghini fits on a 90's Toyota? And to be honest, i often ask myself the same for how this Lambo ended up here!!


Moving on to another Ben's ride, this R34 has recently returned from Parker. He did a few changes while he was in Florida but then returned it to the state he got it in. Now we applied a small but quite striking detail on it, we got a piece of masking tape and made those red accents on the carbon lips all around the car. Benny was probably inspired by the new GTR Nismo but it works just as well on this one, despite the blue paintjob.


As they always say, the devil is in the details.


I don't think it's ever been in here together with the R32! It's a very interesting sight, mostly because mine is a stripped down track monster while Benny's R34 is a moderately powerful street car. Not a totally real R34 GTR but very close to one, it has the same twin turbo setup, interior and pretty much everything apart from all wheel drive which the R32 has, thankfully.


The LHD conversion is so well done too, looks so good with the color matched interior!


Looking to the right there's a similarly colored Honda that we've also worked on a lot in the last few days. The body is all fixed up, now it's time for the suspension. The rear right took a huge hit so we'll probably have to replace the whole assembly, hopefully it won't be too much of a pain to rebuild.


There's no rush for this one though, our priority for now is the SEMA build, i'm very grateful to Big Smoke, Soju and Franklin for helping us out.


The next day Franklin asked me to go for a little trip with the F150, and i knew exactly what he's thinking. Ah shit, here we go again. So we hooked the trailer on and headed out. This giant is quite new to me so this was a good time to get used to it. The sheer size is one thing, not to mention an extra car length behind me! It took me a while to line up the trailer when parking haha.


This ended up driving around almost all day, you'll see why in his thread.

@Benny R34 is looking hot dude! Nice to see the AP1 coming along as well. That V35 must sound INSANE! And of course I'm excited to see what's in store for the JZA80.

@Lagano Chevelle is mad sick fam! I support you going all motor even if it means losing lots of power, only because these LSes sound AMAZING in NA form. And those HREs suit the red SO well, such a classic muscular vibe.
