Welcome to the × C U R B • B A N G E R Z × blog.
Here you can read from the beginning the life of a curb basher in the land down under.
A whole new territory for us to experience. Our first purchase in Australia was a Nissan 240sx. Not in bad shape, a self proclaimed restoration specialist restored it to original. This 240sx even has a super rare 2-way differential. Obviously a perfect canvas for our adventure. Stay tuned.
Our first break in the S chassis. So after a quick hangout today with a local car enthusiasts we ran into, our spirited driving led to the fail of the old KA24. Of course this has influenced us to find another Japanese motor, but according to our buddies here a v8 is a dime a dozen. So under a lot of pressure to rebuild the broken 240, we fell into the lure of a roaring v8. We had issues with the interior so for now, we threw in an iPad in for a cluster and an aluminum panel to allow engine controls. To counter the terrible handling under great loads of power we also grabbed 326 Power coilovers with Animal Style camber plates. Wheels coming soon?
So, many fans and readers of our blog have asked us why we came to Australia and what our living situation I currently. First off, we came here for an adventure and to experience the festival like never before. We have met many great people along the way. Who is we? Well that would be Ethan, Ryan, and myself. We did not come down here together, but after we ran into each other again in the festival. We originally met in the U.S. at Final Bout and even at H2Oi. But it has been a couple years since the tragedies at both events and we just wanted to move onward. We all followed a similar path in choosing our rides. A bunch of S Chassis, look at that diversity.
We found an amazing Farm house in between the Byron Bay and the Surfer's Paradise. It has everything a car enthusiast needs. It even has a small barn that can double as a garage.
Here is a small update to the festival, I got new rims for the hatch. And oh yeah, we kinda are staying and opening up a shop out front of the farm. Stay Tuned.
It has been a while yall, but we got the shop going and what better way to start it then a advertisement car? So simce then i have thrown in a new transmission; a Rocket Bunny kit has been fitted to the car aswell. Right now the car is in raw form and needs paint. To make the fitment of the car all good newly redone oem knuckles, tie rods, and a few more extras were added.
