Everyone starts somewhere, and in this guy's case - he probably didn't have enough steering lock to recover from the spin. ALSO I did smush in his minty minty fresh corolla - he's a buddy but he lost his cool a bit and we laughed about it later.

Keep drifting fun, y'know?

I would come watch hahaha. I dont drift..... at least yet or in my current s12
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

So in addition to re-doing my 240sx rear end, I also decided to finally investigate my cooling options.. Heres what happened
  • Gutted and chopped out upper rad support
  • Cut off headlight motors and solid mounted headlights into upright position
  • Built custom containment cage for intercooler and rad (all mounted with ballermatic metric hardware)













Still do to:

  • Custom front bumper rebar to hold bumper skin/crash bar
  • Mount new H4 headlights
  • Plumb some IC pipes
  • New rad hoses (have the lower, need to source an upper that will fit)
  • Clean up some wiring

-Dan


this is sick dude. really portrays what i was trying to make instead of a V mount i might be doing something similar to mine because my 1j gets hot sideways. if you dont mind.

your s12 is looking bad ass though.

Thanks David, since doing this upgrade I have had almost no cooling issues - and when I did it was because I have a very minor headgasket leak and was running low on coolant :S . That lower bar also acts as an excellent cow-catcher and protects your IC/rad from tires, bumpers, debris etc.



So.. Not to say I am putting the S12 on the backburner, but I picked up a neat new project for a steal of a deal.. And by that I mean it was a theft recovery, hence the missing parts.. As of today I have it running and driving, still needs seats, headlights and a trunk though.

It IS getting tracked.. I think it has a clutch type diff and it definitely has coilovers.. Need to delete the HICAS and put in a set of racing buckets. It is 5 bolt too so all my wheels/tires will transfer over to it no problem - I even have a set of stock R32 wheels.

ive driven some 240's and such and a few corollas but i cant get over how much fun s12's are. perfect wheelbase/weight ratio for higher hp engines.

honestly s12's take inline 6's with not to many problems. i dont really even think of all the weight up there.

Hit a 300 pound tractor tire with rear quarter, trying to get close to an amigo with a flag..

Rear quarter is fubar. Toe arms look to be bent. Car is crab walking.
