Hello from Sydney, Australia!

Postby HKS200 » Sat May 19, 2012 8:30 am

Hey everyone I'm a long standing member of ACOA and saw that xnickx is on here too so thought I would sign up.

heres a quick recap of my enthusiast life down under so far.

so back in 2007:

HKS Hipermax LS+, Elegance front Lip and K&N in place:
Image

Went through a bit of a IS300/AAC headlight whoring stage:

Standard IS300 headlights:

Image

Satin black IS300 8000K Oracle Halo Headlights:

Image

Standard IS300 headlights: with 6000K Oracle Halos and retrofitted hella 90mm Projectors:

Image
Image

then a wheel whoring stage:

JDM goodies :D (Forged TRD Sports 18x7.5+42 18x8.5+42)/crap phone pics

Image
Image
Image

work meister S1 17x7 +35

Image
Image

a bit more JDM goodies

Image
Image

then the power bug hit and I wanted a manual car so I parted everything out and bought one of these:

WRX STi Version 7

it had around 200kw at the wheels and had a few mods and got regularly taken to the local circuit too.

Image
Image
Image

got bored of the lack of steering precision and with the IS200 still in the garage the Idea was to start a JDM Beams conversion. So I'm going to use this RS200z as a parts car. My car currently isn't worth taking any pictures of haha.

ahaha true. Just the chargespeed kit weighs a tonne and I'll probably destroy it at a track day. Direction of the silver car is a track focused car with a good balance of handling and power while also being streetable (rather generic I know). The only exterior parts being transferred are the wide front guards. Hoping to build a high comp all motor 3S. We'll see how it goes.

depends what kind of guards you have. if you have a kouki with factory HID then yes if not you need to modify/cut the bottom mounting tab.
