    @battleaxe I totally agree. I’ve seen cars go from a complete miss to an absolute hit, just by adjusting the ride height and literally that’s all 90% of F&F cars needed. @Urrik definitely big gay because these are Work XT7’s, not gramlights lol. I’m done with colored wheels. It hasn’t really worked on this car to be honest. I know what you mean by cookie cutter VSKFs though. They are so popular yet so disgusting. Also, I’d like to know your take on the car of her people, because if it ain’t a 4’-11” latina behind the wheel of a long ass 1998 chevy suburban with a sticker on the entire back window that says “Durango” and a smaller sticker that says, in memory of Gloria Lopez Lopez - 1974-2008, then idk what you mean. @tuner4life Thank you so much dude! I definitely think cars should be driven and driven hard is the best way to enjoy them. In the same breath it’s not enough to drive hard. You have to look cool doing it otherwise it’s boring. Like many have said, “drifting is a rolling car show.” I’ve seen kids throw down some aggressive lines consistently, but it’s not anything worth filming imo because the car looks like shit. There was a big event down here last year and there was one kid with a stockish frs with angle mods I remember commenting, “damn he’s driving hard and consistently running the wall.” Since the event, I’ve probably only seen one photo or clip of the kid’s car the entire two day event. I guess being a good driver is not enough to get spot light, people just don’t want to photograph ugly cars.

    At the end of the day, the the ratio of "car looks good", vs "car actually gets driven hard", this one is one of the best! There are plenty of drift Cressidas out there struggling to look presentable, and there are plenty of show worthy cars that rarely get driven. This one is an excellent balance of both.

    Not made yet, will be equal length 6 - 1 setup I think. maybe 3 - 2 I need to get the car rolling first and also fix the steering column. I have a bit of movement I would like to remove.

    One of the best looking GE's. My dick's getting a bit soft though, going to need a pic of it with headers mocked up

    Hah, my wife is also a Mexico. Also trying to get her out of her Impreza and into the car of her people LOL I completely forgot while posting that your new wheels were chrome. I was thinking more of cookie cutter Weds/VSKF/other gross shit. I might be gay, but if you had the Gram Lights color matched to the lower half of the two tone, that would look cool

    the formula still exists, no matter the parts. id love to see F&F original cars redone with fitted wheels and stuff, sort of what Angry Earl did for the FD. Would have been cool if it had the same kit, but his car looks better. its weird how such a simple thing, that anyone can do, gets done so wrong. This is based strictly off ppl posting fitted, low, styled cars, and then they make their own, and its not remotely the same, but they are like ya, its the same..same car...ok dude.

    @Jason the Avalon is a BIG car, but side by side in the garage, they’re damn near the same length. The Subaru is the shortest. I think the width and height of the cars do most of the talking in this picture. It is a BIGWIN kit. So in a sense, yes it’s what the S9 series 1 kit looks like. @battleaxe agreed. I wanna see cool Cressidas come up, but damn do 90% of them suck. I feel like a pretentious hater, but there’s just not much to like. Cut corners, bad taste/style, no vision/imagination, cookie cutter. I mean I guess the same could be said about my car, I have the most overused bodykit albeit the authentic one, two tone and dummy chrome wheels, but I never built the car to change the Cressida game or do something that’s never been done. I just want a clean reliable drift car that stands out. @Urrik my fiancée is Mexican so we definitely partake in front yard fiestas lol

    You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. PM Sent. Also looking forward to that info on the AE86 front end. I'm still trying to decide what I want to do to piece my front end together.

    ^I feel like all the creative ones came from here. Everywhere else I look now I just see the same giant aero on melanin enriched chrome wheels. @LUMBERZACK parked up on the front yard like a true Mexican @Jason and thats WITH aero. Without it they look small pulled up alongside a late 90s Accord. Makes you wonder where they managed to cram 3400 lb of dead weight. I always thought the newer JZX cars were a bit bigger because they seemed larger than life online. But an x90 in person is about the size of my Cressida. It's definitely longer, but it almost feels smaller because of the roofline and it isnt shaped like a bar of Irish Spring

    I think you're confused. X8s never made it into drifting, that would require the car gets driven/finished to even attempt to LEARN to drift. There is only a handful that got finished and then used. Most would get parted and sold/scrapped. Then ppl tried to "drift tax" the chassis resulting in many being between 3-5k for a free to $500 car which requires several 1000's to make it a usable vehicle, or roll the dice with a M motor, w box and a welded diff. Now we have none for sale as they get dropped at the wreckers, and the wreckers dont hold them because they're a worthless car, now they're all but gone. Probably for the best because its either S9 v1 kit on 18s with 45 series tires, or stock body with 350z rims and 45 series tires. Absolutely zero creativity, style what so ever for the chassis.

    I'm trying to get a good rear end at least lined up and ready to put in. This is supposed to be my daily driver. My rear end is already on its last legs and I don't want a burnout to be what totally puts it out of commission if I can finally start driving this POS after fixing the brakes.

    Interesting. I'll have to check this out. I took it to a mechanic who has done other work for me on the car and he suggested that the prop valve might gone. So I've ordered and adjustable one from wilwood and we just delete it all together. I'll talk to him tomorrow and check that out. Thanks for this.

    i mean, welcome to a decade ago. X8s were all over the scene and they've died because too many were destroyed via drifting. they're definitely still considered a very cool chassis, they're just pretty rare these days with 1J's getting slapped hard with drift tax and the lack of available straight chassis. there's a reason everything's getting K-swapped these days. that's just everything old vs. new. new cars are so gigantic the boats of yesteryear look like sub compacts. my e30 makes my old x8 look like a yacht, but that same yacht looks like a pinto next to a brand new corolla.

    The rod from your peddle to master may be adjusted too long, not letting the lines to fully vent back to the master.

    Forgot to add, I have purchased about 8 of these weld in inserts. had them made to suit standard Toyota thread this will allow me to make the cross member on the rear, as well as the AE86 castor arm mounts bolt in factory looking. The whole front end should be AE86 other than custom LCA (AE86 extended maybe 3-35mm/ inch and half-ish) and of course, some form of longer rack ends. I will do better write ups once everything has arrived and i can start doing more detailed posts As for stickers, if you want some just PM me your address and i will send you some

    Considering how bad the bearing...race?...was in the rear end on the passenger side I kind of expected the front spindles to be a mess when we pulled it apart. But it's actually pretty. So changed brake rotors, calipers, pads, and hoses. And of course changed wheel bearings inner and outer. Also learned that packing bearings is quite cathartic. Shortly after this when doing the other side we realized that since we didn't have an impact, it was indeed easier to set the hub in the the wheel, and use that to give leverage....doh Here is a beautiful brake rotor... And here is a brake rotor after six miles and up to 80 mph. As you can see the brakes are still dragging. So I replaced the hoses. Thinking maybe they are gummed up, but fuck it I'm replacing everything else in the front why not replace them too. So after bleeding and going for another test drive definitely better, but still dragging. And i've exhausted my brake knowledge. I didn't have issues before the master cylinder was changed. But probably since the old master was 40+ years old and super crummy and leaking there is trash somewehre. So I'm taking it to a shop tomorrow and they can work some kind of magic on it hopefully. Because I just want to drive this thing after what....five fucking months.

    If gibbs gets a sticker then I need a sticker for sure. I definitely need a slap for my collection. I also need more lowdown for my wagon so I can justify a chinspo. I just got a package today that my MIL sent from Japan exactly three months ago. So I guess packages are moving again? We can only hope.

    Yeah, I will be doing updates. even created a little section on my blog/website for all the builds. but yeah not much is happening due to COVID here in VIC, we have gone to full lockdown cant leave postcode and you need to wear a mask. I use to focus a bit on all three builds so progress was slow. Binchicken has widebody and blackbirds Yamaha front lip getting replicated to run on the street. Blackbird is awaiting me to finish widebody, rear doors, boot and bonnet. Hizoku just got engine mounts half sorted i have changed it from the traditional rubber mount to engine mount to an engine to bush to mount if that makes sense? (See below) the 2JZ digital Crank and Cam sensors came yesterday so that leaves installing DBW and working out how I will do air intake temp sensors left really. so I hope next month I will be able to have the engine completed and start working on the placement of how it will all fit in.

    But is that mustard? @ROBAPHENT 🤣🤣🤣 Glad you'll be posting some updates. I need inspiration to keep moving forward on my wagon. It's been getting me depressed with all the brake issues. But at least it's running now.

    I gave brian the file to replace the clock, it's the best not in the way place. Your stereo should have a clock anyways. Also, just get a Can Bus gauge.
