Got some updates and a load of photos to upload plus some videos lying around so thought it was time for another update for the first time in ages.

Clutch is all in and working great now. Thanks to Z1 Motorsports for getting it to me in super quick time.
This is the old knackered one

And here is the nice new uprated beast that should take a bit more abuse :)

Also decided to give the exhaust a bit of a clean up and chuck a bit of heat wrap on the downpipes as I found my boots were melting from the heat lol.

I found that I also got a few seconds of fame on Motors TV so I thought I would share

Made a start of getting more bits sorted. This time getting the rear spaced out a bit and rolling the arches to match.

This is before with no spacer or arch roll.

This is with the 25mm spacers added but still with no arch roll, would look pretty damn good for a road car but doesnt leave and room for suspension travel sadly.

Now after a bit of arch rolling it now covers the tyre and also give enough room for suspension travel. A bit of playing around with ride hight will be needed.

Also looking into fitting a bonnet vent as I have had it lying around for ages. Just been trimming it down a bit to get an idea of what it will look like.

Got my spacers sorted for the back now thanks to Rare Rims. Car sitting and looking a bit more like it should, Also dropped it by 20mm at the back.

Right now on to the fun and games I have been having with the steering lock mods. A massive thanks goes to Phil Morrison and Driftworks for sorting me bits for this.
I am now running Driftworks Geomaster bent tension rods, adjustable lower arms, modified geomaster knuckles and rack bushes with s14 track rods and ends.
I got my local machine shop to make me some bushes to replace the s body suspension mount so I could fit the knuckles on the z32 double wishbone setup. After that I cut and welded the geomaster knuckles and made it all fit together.


I am still playing around with the setup so I can test it out properly at the final round of the British Drift Championship at Knockhill next weekend but here are the pics so far. enjoy :)

Right got a couple extra pics here, had to reduce the lock by a fair bit as I am waiting on some other bits to sort my camber out then I can extend to lower arms more for extra wheel clearance. It does have more than the pic shows but the steering kept springing back from the lock stops when I went to take a picture...lol.

yeah still using the 595rsr, need some new ones though as these are a bit knackered. Got some 265 wide ones lying about but they are a touch too big for the front I think..lol They are 255 on there now and thats a bit over the top but they were my old rear road tyres.
