After a very very long day i picked my car up was on the train at 545 am and getting to the car at 1pm checked it over was very happy with it and drove it the 260+ miles home which was eventfull.

Car drives ace need the bodywork looking at but thats it made up with it.

Took some pics pitty the weather was crap and the police were cocks (another story)











And the petrol station picture lol



Need to sort some 45's all round as the cars just alittle to low for the stupid bumpy roads round mine.

Plans are put petrol in skid it replace tyres WIN


Oh sorry i have modded it with a jimmyup air freshner

Worked in JDM tuning for many years, watch out for rust on the rear chassis rails, S13's love to rot right through the floor, be wary also that the CA18, rather like its RB brothers doesn't tollerate any hint of oil starvation even for a moment, sump baffles! Even if you make your own its better than nothing.

That said with the right parts (Tomei rods, pistons, poncams) I've mapped a CA18 to a good 450hp with the stock crank, mild flowing on the head and a GT28RS @ 1.5 bar.

Great fun. And the RB26 is a lovely fit under the bonnet...

And while I think of it - I have the hardware and software to edit the Nissan ECCS ECU in that car wink

Give it some lazy-eyes too dude ... they look awesome. Oh, and umm, Evo 7 front bumper vent fits into an S13 bumper without too much hastle, gives about another 10-15% surface area increase in fresh air to the I/C.

At last Tony - dont go fixing this one until it breaks! raftl

...and they are the track rod ends, for the steering rack, not the traction rods wink

Have they just added some stud iron to give the car more lock, and reinforced it with the other bar?

Its quite a common (and scary) mod on the S13, the drift boys swear blind that the trackrods flex. Because obviously a piece of bar held on with three hose clips is going to make a huge difference to it... Given that there is sufficient force to make the factory trackrods flex, three hose clips don't stand much chance in the rigidity game laugh

Totally agree Danoh, that trackrod mod done that way makes no difference other than a adding bit of extra weight on the moving suspension. If they are that concerned why dont they just weld it.

I have no doubt the track rods do flex, but so do the tyres, the wheels, the wishbones and the chassis etc etc. The flex in the tyres must be enormously more than the track rod could create.

The best "feel" update one could do for a drift car is just to rose-joint EVERYTHING, additionally get some adjustable top mounts and wind on the caster. One of the cars I have worked on (mapped the engine management) over the years was Brett Castles S14, that was much as described above.

A scary risk I can see from those bars is what happens to your wheel when the bar flings out and gets jammed between the wheel and the caliper ... ripping brake lines and sending you through the pearly-gates in a drifty fireball!

Absolutely - its much better than rocking up in a wheel chair unable to recall what day it is. But, its best only to arrive when you intend to, no matter how cool the impromtu entry might be!

dan0h cheers for the info bud its not my 1st s13 think its my 5th lol

Brett castle was ny 1st drift idiol so anybody good enough to work on his car is good enough for me to listen to cheers.

The pikey mods shall be off the car tomora once the trackins sorted yeah stu noticed my mistake but still didnt fix it lol

The steering mod is on the knuckle its chopped and welded plus there us a 3mm spacer on the tension rods the pikey mod was the last owners idea of stopping the tension road from bending on full lock lol

have since put my old hatch and shall have a avcr and my kouki lights in by the end of the month.

Hoping the sxoc rolling road goes ahead on the 27th so i can see what power the car makes.

Oh and dan0h rb26's are sweet but very expensive to run my mates got a rb26 powered 13 (496 bhp i think) the reall problem though is heat while drifting for him.
