Thought i'd do a thread to keep track of my "progress" and so other people can see
I've had a skyline for a year, and i was starting to fall in love with the 4 door drift car look. I bought my skyline with no real intentions to drift it. then i sold my 240 drift car to drift skyline. Before i actually got to drift skyline i sold it and bought this jz81 that you are about to see.
This is a 1991 Jzx81 Cresta, with a mark 2 front end. So it doesn't quite line up, but its pretty good in my eyes.
Kei office front coilovers 12kg springs
Cusco rear coilovers 10kg springs
z33 front brakes
Racing gear tension rods
Flipside customs rear camber arms/toe arms
Delrin RUCA bushings
ORC super single
Yamaha factory front mount IC
Hippo Sleek side skirts/rear bumper
Destructo King front bumper
MOCAL oil cooler
Oil filter relocation
Cams (iirc HKS 264)
Mine's ECU with Greddy E-manage piggyback
Bride Brix passenger seat
NRG deep steering wheel /w QR
Omori water/oil temp & oil pressure gauges
Blitz Dual SBC
Blitz boost gauge
3" RSR downpipe
3" Dartesumi Exhaust /w magnflow 3" resonator welded in
I will post pictures of how it looked when i got it. You will see pictures of my jzx and pictures of my buddies gtr.
That is when i got it. I brought it home. did some work to it. Changed the oil, spark plugs, cleaned the filter.
I gotta change the release bearing. ordered one from toyota. The release bearing is noisy as hell. As you will notice the car is completely stripped. Things on top of my list are
-Locate full interior
-Paint body kit to match car
-Change diff fluid
Pictures of how it is now. Keep in mind this is my third day owning the car
Did all this work today.

Those Weds look a bazillion times better on this car than the skyline.
Posted 13 April 2011 - 08:25 AM
the mod list came from the for sale ad. but i'm 99 percent sure they are z32 front brakes.
yes, the weds look way better on jzx than skyline. it suites it way more
For anyone wondering wheel specs
Rears are 18x9.5 +25 with a 13 mm spacer. +12 effectively with a 225/40/18 tire
Fronts are 18x9 +28 with a 15mm spacer +13 effectively with a 215/35/18 tire
Fucking have this car for 2 fucking days and i already get a driving complaint. Off to the police station we go. i wonder what its for.
Posted 13 April 2011 - 09:06 AM
is this like a polite way of saying fix it ticket?
Posted 13 April 2011 - 12:08 PM
I go into the police station today. talk to the cop. He gives me a 402 dollar stunting ticket because my buddies neighbor in the uplands, got my license plate number and took pictures of skid marks. He probably wrote a statement too, cause it looked like the cop was reading off of something.
So now what do i do. I got the ticket in my hand. If i go to court, its me vs the neighbor guy isn't it?

Im going to talk to my step dad later tonight. He is the kind of fighting tickets

They can't put me in the car. They cant put my plate to that car. They can't put the car to the skid marks.
Unless he has a photo of me doing a burnout. (which still wouldn't stand, it was like 2 seconds, he'd have to be the best photographer ever to catch that)
Im just mad cause its wasting my time. Im supposed to be moving to the west coast on the 1st of may and now my court is on the 31st of may.

Toysport and 935 Motorsports suck. Don't buy from either.

Its just stupid that a less than two second wheel hop (it wasn't even a burnout. i gave it some gas, clutch kicked and i was off), get me a ticket when i see people sliding corners on the main streets.
Im fighting it forsure cause i know he has no proof it was me, or even my car doing it.
Posted 14 April 2011 - 07:12 AM
Anyway. Because he had a hitch and my car is super low. He went right through the bumper. As far as i can tell. Thats all he hit.
No bumper supports FTW. Looks like i got some more fiberglass to do
Posted 14 April 2011 - 09:47 AM
Im thinking. Nothing to really pay for. I already have all the fiberglass stuff i need. Its just going to be more of my time
