Dave Dirt posted a topic in Members RidesWelcome!! So in January 2011 was about the time i decided i wanted a little project to play with and have some fun in. After wanting to have owned a s13 for quite a while, I was on the hunt for something within budget. In March 2011 I came across one that ticked all my boxes and flew up to QLD to pick it up from a fellow NS member. I would be lying if i said I was completely comfortable driving 12hrs in a bright gold (with some black & blue bars and bare boot lid) slammed s13 home back to Sydney and not knowing any of its history...BUT its was by the best road trip ive ever done. Apart from losing a few litres of petrol at the servo 2mins after collecting it due to a flogged out seal, this bad boy purred back to its new home with no issues at all! It was quite a eventfull drive lapping back to Sydney with no plates on it (had a UVP). Im certain most hospitals from Brisbane to Sydney had a influx of people requesting neck braces after that Saturday. People passing me on the entire trip would double take to check if the thing had plates and rubbing their eyes in disbelief as to why the car was on the road. It attracted so much attention and I was certain i was going to be pulled over a few times by the Police, but never was Once i got it back home, it took me a couple of weeks to pass a blue slip and get the thing on the road under NSW reg. Had to have the car one complete colour, raise it up a little and few other little bits and pieces. It was the time to have so fun at a Driving Sports Wet Pan night...The car felt and handled good, but was getting sore from the standard seats and grabbed myself a 2nd hand Bride. Only had one issue with the car on the 2nd wet pan event. I snapped a clutch pin on the night..luckly a friendly Ambo that was there on the night donated a needle from the medical centre there at the track and was able to use that as a pin and back out on the track - to this day the needles is still holding strong almost a year on after a few wet pan days, was time for some upgrades. Replaced the coilovers with some HSD's and grabbed some castor rods, toe rods and camber arms. A few months later did some engine upgrades as the November Wakefield Matsuri was insight. From when i bought it it had a red top SR with a GT28r in it, i then went and got some bigger injectors, Z32, Power Fc and a EBC. There were a few teething issues during the tune process but was happy with the result, and couldnt get the smile off my face on the drive home from the tuners..the car felt fresh and like a menace prior to the tune. The time finally came and Chich and I were off to our first dry drift track day... http://youtu.be/_1mG9N598zU http://youtu.be/V1O9AXfVVzc Was a great weekend and had a ball!! only had a slight oil issue with the car on the last day if the weekend so was pretty impressed otherwise that everything held up after 2 days of punishing it. to be continued....
