Forgot to mention the new wheels for the rear. The old ones have finally had it from all the abuse :lol:

Image

Image
Car sits about an inch lower since the picture was taken, *borat voice* its a very niiice!

Tried the wheels on the front and quite like the fitment. Might get another set to stick on

Nice, I like those wheels, I think the dark bronze colour looks better tho. What size and spec are they?

Not too bothered about the colour. They will be going a different colour in the near future that might not suit everyones taste.

They are 8.75 et20 18"

Cheers dude, Ive been eyeing those wheels up for a while as I really like the concaveness :D But wasnt 100% sure on them. But now after getting 2 for the rear, I think the fronts will get done too. And then they are getting painted :roll:

Ride height aint too bad :lol:

Image

You get used to it....with some downsides ofcourse...
Image
Ripped a hole in the exhaust while overtaking someone....on a cats eye!!!!

But I think ive reached the limit of low that I can go with the suspension since I am already running 20mm of spring droop on the back.

Image

Need to get it done with the body kit now

A little update after the last weekend. Went to Driftland for the second time

Image

And actually had power steering at my disposal this time round. Made things a bit easier.

Queueing up got the nerves going a bit

Image

Was a really nice layout with which I struggled to begin with. But after a few runs got a hang of it...

Image

Image

Image

Cam sensor was causing all sorts of problems throughout the day and the engine was cutting out in crucial places.

Just noticed how happy the facial expression is in this picture... Driftland is pretty awesome!

Image

Image

Image

On the last run of the day, I got a little too carried away and flopped it big time on a transition on the straight....Ended up missing the wall and ending up going up on a bank. As some people have said that I had a 'VIP parking spot' and that I had a pretty decent 'hill climb' vehicle. Cheers guys :)

The only photo I have is this: (There is a video that hasnt been uploaded yet though. Thats gonna come soon)

Image

Demon tweeks carabiners suck....dont ever get one

Image

And the aftermath

Image

Image

Image

Hmmmmm, cable ties aint gonna work here

Image

After a couple of hours...Getting slightly better

Image

As I have said before a few times...You win some, you lose some. New backbox = win

Image

Taken earlier today.

Image

Dedicating this weekend to getting it back into shape again and ready for more abuse next month
