So to make a long story short, my buyer, that i had been waiting on for 2 months, just flaked on me. But being the reasonable and well-tempered person i am i said "no problem man" and "shit happens, dont stress" but inside i was like FUCKKK MEEE. but its been almost 8 hrs since i got the news so ive thought about my options, i tried getting other buyers back interested but no luck. So....Im keeping the bitch, but no im not keeping it the same as it was last year, im doing a full revival, last year the car drove like shit, not the engine but the alignment was terrible, shit had like 2 degrees of toe out and rear camber was like -1 on one side and -3 on the other and who knows what the toe was on the rears, and the steering has like a 1/4 turn of play, tie rods are bent to shit, bushings are blown, most of the suspension is stock shit...and still i got some good drifting out of her in the last event i drove in, so just imagine if the suspension was perfect 8O
so enough ranting this is what i have planned and dont take my word, i change my mind like every hour, but im planning full pbm arms, flcas, subframe risers, knuckles, and cobra downpipe; new oil system since ill actually be trying next year so i need a baffled pan and a thermo-ed oil cooler setup to make my sr last; also hopefully a cage, i mean i have the funds but idk if i can sell my interior for the amount i put in, but none the less it will be magical. also no mare cheap shit, no megan, or godspeed crap, ive been saving up this winter and will have sufficient fund to do most of this stuff, and if i run out of money well idk ill make do.

so enough of that, id post some pics of my car now but seriously i dont like how it looks, its not a true representation of me and how this car can be. stay tuned i should be starting to buy parts soon.

Started pulling the engine and tranny tonight and should have it all out tomorrow as well as start stripping out all interior and the the radio system, ac lines, and heater stuff behind the dash. I also scheduled the week of jan 8-jan 15 down at nocturnal motorworks in stl so Omar can do a full fd legal cage and do front tubs. and should be starting to buy parts around the time i take my s14 to omar.

today i only worked a couple hours, i got lazy :mrgreen:

Seats out, rear panels out, full console out
Image
Image

Dash is Out!
Image

this is how i left it, airbag out as well as blower and heater core, ill get the rest of the shit out tomorrow and maybe the carpet too
Image


I also decided im gonna just go ahead and do a full chasebays engine bay (powersteering kit w/cooler, overflow tank, hidden ss brake lines and clutch line) partly because im doing tubs and need a new overflow tank, my powersteering hoses leak after driving and i need a cooler so it doesnt keep boiling, and the green-tan oem brake and clutch lines look like shit running above my sr :lol:

Summary of last week: It was a busy week, stripped the rest of the car and ordered some stuff. also took the rolling shell down to Omar at nocturnal motorworks

Heres the car right before leaving for st charles
Image
Image
Image

Omar and deweys shop, outside it looks normal, but the inside...DAMN...amazing cars/engines/parts everywhere, and omars fab work is top notch.
Image

i preordered a set of these because they sold out quickly last time so i want to get mine asap instead of waiting another 4 months:
Image

and i got a mint set of these with only 100 miles on them for $100 shipped...pretty good deal and solid mounts are dope :mrgreen:

I like my motor mounts like that, they were steel with urethane though.

Stiff, bit not car rattling crazy most of the time like solid aluminum.

Yeah the avid mounts are stiff, the trans mount is solid aluminum and the motor mounts are aluminum with stiff polyurethane inserts, it should rattle the car like crazy but I hated how much slop I got with the nismo mounts.

well i dont mean theyre really sloppy, theyre stiff but comfortable,lol its just for the track solids are better like galen said.
and i will be selling them, they go for 250-280 new for the set, my price will be $200 since theyre in mint condition and only have like 200miles and one event on them which is like nothing on mounts.

^ Haha.

I liked my Peak Performance mounts. They had stiff poly bushings on all three. I like the transmission mount having some play/give (which you didn't feel) that matched the motor mounts.

The harder you drive a car, the more you notice parts of the car that aren't up to spec.

Ever noticed the difference in sidewall flex between a 50 and 60 profile tire?
You do when you are pushing the limits of the tires.

Melvin should drift.

Haha. JK. It was just the immediate response that popped in my head.

I use 50 if I buy new, most of the used stuff I get is 60.
60 on the front is not real fun.

Yeah I had to run 55 on the front and those were so inconsistent, but even 50 is alittle crazy. I Hope to run 40 series every event this year...hopefully
