    Curse of the Cressida

    Dear Diary, Cressida has 4 gauge power wire. going to upgrade that. battery might have a very slow drain on it even with the kill switch. sits at 12.3 or so, and with car on, its 14.2 or whatever. the 4 gauge wire is like 40mm thick and the supras is 50mm thick and runs half the electronics lol. both cars have the same dual 12inch fans go on start up maybe thats what pushes the thinner wire over the edge after the car is warm and the wire gets hotter? i started it and then turned it off and started back up again. only did it the once though, seems same ol same ol but i still dont trust it to not leave me stranded. tried some 15s on for shits and giggles as i got a tire machine back in the fall i think been driving the d21 to work this past week to test out the clean and rebuilt fuel injectors, now no longer leaking fuel over everything. i radius'd the front arches as well as one was rotten and cleared and the other was decent and caught the tire, so i wanted to see what it looked like...better. still needs radius'd pathfinder/4x4 fenders though and i have some beat up pathfinder fenders to mod for the rear to flare the rear out. s13...i keep looking at the wires and slowly started to tidy them up. got some motivation to work on that after our first practise this past saturday...more interested in making the s13 mobile so i can toss the cressida in the shed and fix the rear end and make it feel nice and firm and reliable so i can start to drive it on a regular basis to and from work or something. then it will be a toss up of putting the s13 back in the shed to swap rear ends or to start on the supra. supra runs and drives and drifts fine as is, but the 2j will be a lot better and ill be adding PS back to the car and should make the car perfect...does require 2-3k thereabouts to finish mind you and will once again be slow with wiring in the link ecu. should have been a smart man and have one drift car or something also got a wrecked crv for parts and swapped the entire exterior and interior as the outside had all kinds of old damage and is a early model and the late model had a bunch of painted parts so updated that, and the interior was old and the driver seat was shitty so the new car had half the kms on it (ours is at 380k kms?) and was dark grey and has tinted windows, so its been nice. had to modify the back seat belt buckles today as they change the receivers and the belts in the later model which was odd, so i trimmed the buckle to allow the old style to go deeper and then made the d shape on the belt more into a square so now they lock. the early and late model have different rear seat bases and allow the rear seats to flip up and forward for some reason and thats where the belts go on the early model. late model has the belts on the seats ... its needlessly complicated and doesnt make much sense unless you look at it so really who cares. lastly, civic wasnt a bad snow car after i put a crv spare wheel in the boot so i had some rear weight. a ligth car in the snow doesnt make a great one but did the job of getting me to and from work and over an un plowed highway

    oh yes, i did say that about ackerman. i do not understand the reasoning with the 0 ackerman stuff. it changes the way the car drivers in a very weird way. people would have to experiment at low speed and then ramp it up as it is very weird. i like my cobbled design of whatever i did. i just got it to what looked like factory and made them shorter in the supra. i have no idea what im doing. works for our 2nd/3rd gear track here. im not big on the 4th gear+ stuff as its just mental speed that im not interested in and "scared" i guess. i prefer technical stuff more often than not. anyways. i want to shred with you guys. gotta start this traveling thing again. i took no offence to what you said lol. i say a lot of things and forget most of them.

    Might be a mis quote of me? Most who have some kind of knuckles end up going lock to lock for no reason and don't know how to use them. I honestly forget mine are modded because the Supra has nothing from factory. I have caught myself saying oh ..right...I would have spun there but thank u based knuckles. Car looks good. I am thinking about doing a spirit peaks event to do some American yeehaw tandems. Are they invite only things or how does it work? Listing of dates?

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Tires and if they chunk or not is a really hard thing to gauge due to weight of car, psi, track condition... bumpy and shitty or fresh paved, how long u hot lap for, pre burn out and sit, go from cold... So many variables. Love how zestino fell off the map with lumppumps disappearance. Over night everyone who was using them stopped...probably same owners who have the valinos (SP?) Lol. Achilles are good, floppy at start and as they wear they get better and more predictable. I ran some atr sport tread with a c hair left on the Supra and they lasted 5 laps. Most tires I run are junk yard tyres and last me 3-5 laps if I'm lucky and nearly all my tires chunk and tread rips off. I dont run to wires as when they blow up they do a lot of unnessesary damage. People don't run good tires because as you increase grip you need more power and they cost a ton to keep driving. The balance will always be the same for grip to power. As you increase both together they make you go faster and everything costs more. More tires, tires cost more, keeping that now powerful motor happy requires more money and u have a set amount of time. The cost of low power, good grip and smiles per Event will always lie in the sub 300hp with 17s and low to mid tier tires. I prefer to drive a lot and not spend all my money for a fun activity. Our low comp system allows for this as being the best gets you nowhere. Fuck fd and their programs. Honestly stupidest thing for new drivers to try and do due to how they judge and the level the car has to be at to compete let alone personal skills

    big bars make it real snappy and grip becomes less and less..can be compensated else where but its always a give and take. Once my car has the arms and bushings in the back and the car isnt a mess, ill see how the real tiny rear bar is..as currently the back is a sloppy mess. depends on coilovers and spring rates and how much squat it has etc...so many variables for each car

  11. Those t3 thing look incredibly weak and by changing modes you're only changing where it's going to shear. Typically not thought out product from t3 idiots. No r&d, just toss it to the market and make money lol. You don't want 0 Ackerman anyways...let anyone who would notice a difference at anything under pro levels... All this shit is a joke. The x8 OEM knuckles are pretty awesome I'm. I turn to lock and it just just a perfect circle super tight... Typical people who don't know why they should have certain parts, typical Sprint before crawling people.

    Sleeper MX83 build

    I remember a IG seat seller who was buying up everything and charging quad the prices of many. The shipping to Canada on seats is pretty steep as it is...then battle over who's got the bigger dick for the actual seat. Lost some blue srd recaros over some dickhead went for like 1200 😕 before any shipping or conversions. Such is life. I really wouldn't want to count what I have just in stuff. Depends if u pay full pop too and if paying shops to do any work. Can't imagine 26k...us...to be where you're at currently

    Of note, when a bar is tightly curved to the front, if you have a light impact it tends to head directly towards your tire...which is an important item to not damage or puncture while in motion. I prefer the idea of going just around the edge and stop before the corner marker..that way you have the curve to hold your bumper as well as decent protection. Those low slung bars are what worry me..especially on a low car. Getting hit low will buck the top up and fuck with your fender and lights etc. Something to consider.
