Got a call today saying that my bay of the unit was finished and ready to use, it made more sense to share a larger unit. Mine is bay 2 and 3 and included lots of storage above for parts.



while it was being sorted i had a look at a few cars that was in my budget.

first was this little bmw compact, wasnt really after a drifter but after a quick test drive it would make a great missile/practice car.



i then gave this 350z a look but it has been damaged in storage at the car lot and i wanted a car i could use straight away, engine was sweet and it did drive great.



Next was this 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX
as soon as i saw it i knew i had to have it, clean chassis and clean interior. it was owned by one of the script writers of the first fast and furious ! it had a signed copy of the VHS in the glove box too.



the paint is a bit sun damaged and faded and the wheels and stance is hideous, but hoping that can be fixed with a good mop and polish and it wont be staying stock for long.

I love all 3 cars haha! I almost bought the Compact myself.

Looking forward to seeing the Mitsubishi, don't think I've ever owned one. What's the upgrades like for them?

Quite a lot of options, quick change diffs etc to switch to RWD or AWD. i found an old article of one made into a JTCC car with over 600hp. so plenty of options

after i finished staring at how good the paint has turnt out i wasted no time in ripping off the horrible standard wheels.



Fitted some new calipers and braided lines front and rear and new cross drilled rotors along with ebc pads



Once brakes was on and bled i removed the original 4x4 suspension and fitted set of Meister R coilovers with adjustable damping and rebound and separate height adjustment too

Looks good from behind


finished off with a set of 17x8 Work crkai wheels wrapped in yokohama street tyres

Took the Buster for a spin around the COTA full to stretch her legs and see where i need to improve first.
It felt great in the corners, maybe little less body roll but nothing too bad.

what she did need is more power.


Also thinking a body kit will help with the styling, and maybe stick the stickers i got from the new parts



Laptime around the full circuit was 02:37.417

New speed parts have been ordered, should be here tomorrow and fitted same day.

Parts arrived earlier than expected and they all fitted nicely.



Once fitted i took it round monza for a local time attack challenge. hoping to have another go before its closed.

All the parts have arrived and fitted already, car is looking great. went for something a bit different on the wrap idea and colour scheme, wasn't what was planned but really happy with how it turnt out. Body kit and new wheels looks great.


The in colour will be shown soon....


Guess that means i need a another car to fit my spare wheels....

Buster is nearly there, few more tweaks and work on the setup , i needed something that can fit in the RWD class. I also needed a drift car knowing where i want the project to go i imported a clean 1992 PS13.it already had fitted a nice set of sport tein's and a Nismo 2 way Diff. Some of the weight had been removed already.

When i got it back into the Unit i fitted the the Work CRKAI's to it and it gave it a nice stance for now.the coilovers were looking a bit grubby and one of them one leaking so instead rebuilding by tein, i had them change them to the Race spec version with separate ride height,damping and bump adjustment along with various spring rates.

Really enjoing driving the PS13 , its got bags of grip and the setup is slowly getting there.



I feel Buster is getting neglected a little and the need/want for a new project drift car may take its space soon
