back from the dead, serialnine x7 driver from tx

Recommended Posts

Your X7 is what I've been telling everyone an X7 needs to look like. People say X7s would look gay with rims bigger than the "JDM look 14inch rim" gay bs. X7s look hot with big deep dish wheels. Hot car!

Thanks Mo, I think if your gonna do small wheels do it rite at least. Spaced out 14x6's are gross. When i considered 15's I was looking at 15x10 -5 longchamps, that woulda been pretty sick but the tire choices are not there.

 

In my case I run flush/ poke fitment to fit the widest wheel and stretch the widest tire possible into the tiny rear wheel well of the x7 cressida, and as we know you need a very specific range of offset to clear the control arm, upper inner wheel well and outer wheel well.

this shit is about to get real. My car was basically needs a whole redo after the season. I can post pics later but in short it wasn't the car it started the season as haha.

 

I competed in XDC, Lone Star Drift (FD sanctioned Pro am), and was invited to the Formula D Pro Am All star championship at Irwindale. it was a good season I got allot of experience driving against the best pro am guys all over the USA shit was fun.

 

Most importantly i showed allot of people a Cressida can be competitive, it was awesome to have people come up and be so excited i was driving an x7. Theres ALLOT of people building them with no clue about JZX XM S9 and thats cool, just regular kids trying to build a rad car to burn up tires with.

 

Granted i am not the best driver ever but I enjoy just drifting to drift. Might as well see how far you can go with it. Soooo next year ill drive harder and build my car so i have less excuses. I cant wait to get my shitbox on podium next to some guys 50k+ ls swapped s13, Thats when ill be happy

 

As always SO much thanks to G who shipped me parts when i needed them,and this mofucker helped me get the car back on track at PGP in like 15 minutes! hustling a lower control arm assembly and getting that shit rolling again, and Kev for pulling parts off his own car for me.

 

Richard and Lloyd! for being there and helping at formula D and XDC Irwindale. Lloyd drove my broke ass all around LA in the zombie that shit was fun. I know there were sooo many more people in LA, Seattle, Houston, Orlando, jersey, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin that have helped me out or I got trashed with thanks guys.

 

I don't know why i felt i needed to make this big lame post and months late at that. But all I care about is drifting my car, I work a fucking lot just to blow cash on this dumb ass awesome sport and i wouldn't have it any other way.

 

Serialnine will keep representing the X chassis in national level drift competitions, this year I will have a booth with bitches selling you assholes t shirts and stickers on the road. Things will get better and better.
