Wow what a long road it's been indeed... keep us posted! I've had tough times of my own before, even not all that long ago, so I know how it feels.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.

Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.

I've decided to not risk my investment to shit tires, mounted 4 brand new 215/45/17 GT radial champiro HPYs as 'burners'. Fronts will be 205/45/17 toyo proxes 4. I'll give a run down on how good or shit these tires were.

bring da smoke.

Christ almighty! To imagine this thing ever had a spot of rust on it seems ridiculous.

It runs, it drives, it leaks before the turbo like a fucking sieve.

I'll fix it in the long run but for now - I am taking a short break from this damn thing.

Bahhaha, good shit.

I built my e-brake in such a way that it was ever-so-slightly engaged, and effectively locked my rear brakes ON.. *sniff* *sniff* whats that smell? BRAKE PADS. Also, my lower rad hose was weeping on the drive home, the timing was way off so I had next to no power, my temperature gauge also decided to take a vacation.

The car is FUCKING LOW. I was scraping on sections of road that seemed to have no high spots or potholes or anything.. Speedbumps are out of the question, as is all forms of daily driving.

Suspension feels fucking tight though, like it should have a long, long time ago..

Car grips and grips HARD. I feel like it would almost make a better autocross car now than drift car.

 Alignment is as follows:

Front: 6.5 deg caster, -6deg camber, 0 toe
Rear: -1 deg camber, .06" toe out

Thrust is off by less than .03", which essentials mean the subframe is in STRAIGHT.


Oh, also.. I blew up my motor on saturday.. Oops. Need a new RB25, possibly RB26.
