Seriously NO time to get ready but I should be able to pull it off. Got most of the work done this weekend, still have to tidy up a few things and get the alignment done. I also picked up a pair of 17×9 +17 CR Kai with new 215/45s for $300 to use in the rear (or front if the 18s rub too much). Honest update soon…I swear
Ok, so its less than a week before my 1st event here. I’ll be going to the Ziek event at Meihan, and run on the infamous C-course. I should be mad stoked, but in truth I’m a bit stressed with getting the car ready in time, with the limited funds that I have. Lets see what needs to be done, I have all the parts….just not the time:
Install GT-1 tension rods & toe rods
Install Cusco rear upper control arm
Install Ikea Formula inner tie rods
Install ProjectMU D1Spec rear brake pads
Change diff and engine oil
Dismount 225/40 off the front 9J and mount onto the 10J so I can dial out some camber
Mount new 215/40 Goodyear Revspec RS-02′s on the front 9J
Once thats all done, go get the thing aligned
Once its aligned, see where the front rubs in the wheel well/chassis and get out the hammer and bash away.
Then hopefully go to Meihan hope something doesn’t break and pull something like this off a few times:
Also found an awesome cafe that serves some amazing hayashi rice:
Went to a nice kaiten-zushi place, that instead of 100yen plates, most were 400yen and up. This plate was 850yen:
The next day I went to sushi again, this time with Masa, his boss, and Yama (whom I bought the S15 from) to a sushi joint next to my place I never knew existed. We started with these HUGE rolls and sashimi:
And ended with this amazing fresh fish. I actually got to pick him out of the tank, and watch them prepare it for me:
When I got it, he was still moving….so like a dorky tourist I took a video with my phone:
Finally ditched the old seat and picked up this leather solo seat...but I passed on the springs to keep it low. Stoked with how it looks for now. Next up are new bars and tank paint. For some reason this seat change has made this thing SO much more fun...
Rob: Still working on it....when I have time :(...
