My last blog post did a pretty good job at covering brake upgrades, after thinking about the blog a bit, from now on I will try to make more frequent smaller posts, rather than large dumps, mostly because people don't really want to sit down and read paragraphs on end about a big update, so … Continue reading A look up close: SR20DET parts selection
A lot of people feel like there is some rush to build a car. Cutting corners, doing it with incorrect tools, incorrect parts, not following manufacturer specs, and ultimately complaining further down the line about the small things that bug them about their car. I feel that building a car is a very long process, … Continue reading WHATS TAKING SO LONG?!!?!?!?!??!
With the recent rise in popularity with the s-chassis platform, mostly due to youtubers, a lot of people who are new, have gained interest and for some, may be the first time modifying their car.

Being involved with the s-chassis for nearly a decade now, I've seen many different types of builds, and I can tell you, these cars are very versatile when it comes to what you choose to build your car for.

I haven't really had a chance the drive the car much at night, or at all for that … Continue reading Abflug 180sx Headlights
Well, its about time I post an update on some of the parts I've recently acquired, and I've got to say, I've managed to find a fair bit of cool little parts. To start, I "scored" a very rare Nismo watch. I've always had a thing for watches, when I saw this one, with the … Continue reading Yahoo Auctions Japan v3

I've always wanted a set of Nismo willans harnesses, but at $1000 each, I think I will hold off. I wanted something still that was … Continue reading YAJ finds v2
A lot of the time, we go onto the internet, be it facebook, forums, twitter, instagram, whatever. It's quite common to see imaginary build threads, or people talking about crazy swaps they are going to do, or wheels they are going to get, or a style of aero they are going for.

Finally I was able to mount the widebody to the rears after I gave the sealant a little time to cure. Little unhappy with the hardware I ordered for fastening the widebody on. It oxidized very fast, so I'll have to look at either painting each bolt, or ordering some stainless, or titanium hardware for … Continue reading Wide Body, cookin with the wrists
