  1. Hey guys, Just purchased a 180sx, it has the standard VLSD in it. I just want to know how it is for drifting? I have done a couple of small slides so far, and it does seem to single peg when going slowly. But that might be because I was going pretty slow, and it only seemed to be singling in the wet? Considering just shimming or welding. Let me know your thoughts guys! Thanks!

  15. Hey, Just after a few opinions on what type of lense I should get to film a drift event which is coming up soon. I do have a budget unfortunately which will be max $900 for a lense. I'm going to be reasonably close so I was thinking of something around the 300mm mark? Any suggestions? Cheers.
  16. Hey guys I'm starting to get more confident in driving the touge and trust my s13 more since I put coilovers in, I just came back from a run though the twistys and I had my first real spin out on corner exit, what was weird was I got a bit of oversteer but i didn't really feel it though the steering wheel like I normally do whilst drifting at low speeds/getting oversteer in the wet and caught it too late, is it that the power steering takes away some of that feedback at higher speeds? Or was I just not quick enough to catch it due to lack of experience? Is it better to grip drive without power steering in s13s/cars in general? Has anyone ran their s13 without power steering? Also I've been told about that alloy steering bush you an get how effective are they at improving response?

  18. Hey Guys! I'm new here and i wanted to know what the people's opinion on making a drift car! I've just bought myself an S15 and imported it from Japan to Miami, FL and the first thing I wanted to do was to first have fun driving sidewayz!!!! I've already have experienced drifting for the first 3 months but never had the opportunity to create my own car or have been given advice on building one... I know tires would be an expense but at least i know thats another thing to work for... But i also want to know, what adjustments would i have to do making the ride "quake proof" and run smooth. The first thought i wanted to do was to swap the engine, i know the SR20DET is great and all but i dont want to feel like im driving a 240sx / 180sx. I have been thinking about making either a 2JZ GTE swap or RB26DETT swap... (would love the N1 version though) but either than that... I'm clueless to what i should do to handle the torque i would recieve from such powerful engines... Help and advice would be great on what i should buy to keep my car fast and stable on a drift, also making it an everyday car!!! Would love to hear everyone's opinion! Thanks everyone ~Jackson~

Let me just say was a pleasure to go there, was patient and did a good thorough job and very friendly! Powerssss 195rwkws @ 13.56psi 222.1rwkws @ 17psi Can chuck up dyno sheets later on. I got the car about 18 months ago, bought it off ebay ^.^ he looked heaps different when I first got it (actually tidy minus the fitment disaster wheels). Anywho just to bring this thread up to speed is a few things Ive done since owning it. A few pics below of what Ive done, will try keep it brief. This is what it looked like when I first got it... Not styled to my liking but got it for a great price and it was what I was after (s13/180). First thing I did was pull the decals off the side. Got hold of a set of drifteks (Black, multistud 17x9.5 +18 front & rear, wrapped in federal 595s 235/45/17s) and threw on various stickers for the track to keep CAMs happy. Entered my first drift practise day (Dec 09') and came away with a rubber water hose at the rear of the engine being cut through by those terribad worm drive hose clamps and a touch up on the front passenger side headlight after smacking into the tyre wall at the bottom of the S's at the track. Other than than no majors and car ran well I entered last years state drift series purely for the fact to get as much track time as I can to improve myself. Practise practise practise! To get the car re-rego'd (as bought the car from another state) I had to pull off the kit and put the 18s back on the car and raise it up, all the boring things no one wants to do to their car. So it all came off and I got hold of standard rear bar and a ca front bar, chucked them on and sprayed them in primer, looks pretty ratty but better than bright red/maroon imo. Used 400grit sandpaper and primer in a prssure pack XD loves it. I have since relowered the car and ran some drift days with the drifteks on it, I had to put a 5mm spacer on the front as the wheels kept smashing into the coilover on hard lock at the track, they also munched into my main wiring loom running along the driver side, which when it did it I was on the track and the headlights kept popping up when I entered a corner lol and the horn earthed out and I had to drive the rest of the way around the track an in the pits with the horn going off, kinda embarrassing As you can see from the last pic the loom now sits on the lip/seam rather than under it, completely removing any possibility of some tyre on wire action. Ran out of time for a bash plate so the last track day (few weeks back) I did terrible all day with a combination of shitting myself about smashing my new sump on the ripple strip (which sits a good deal lower than the stock one) and poor quality tyres spinning me off the track, wasnt a good day in regards as far as progression was concerned. Also in one of my battles my brakes line split and put the car out of more battles :/ From the day though I have taken a new found appreciation for good quality tires, the combination of power, speed and bad tires has been learnt. Here is a few pics I have seen of me on track, the car atm is in dire need of presentation, especially considering how many of the other cars down here have really stepped it up on vehicle presentation, the turbo shat itself a few weeks back so hence buying the gt2871rs so the new s14 front was put on hold for a bit. Hopefully guards will be ordered soon.
