So today i went to go see my new SC300, it was in Japan (idk why) and i decided if im in Japan for the Matsuri, might as well ship my cars over (i got a buddy who owns some importing business, so it was hella-cheap) So i was driving through a mountain pass with my S14....

took a quick pic with the phone:

It really was beautiful.


As i carved through the mountains with my stock SR'd, stock drivetrain, and just colis and wheels, I thought about BNB and how it is. I realized moments like these are what BNB is about. I had a rough, week. as the low pur of my engine slowly eased my troubles behind me.


Sometimes stuff goes by fast. I had to figure out what car life really is. There is a bond between man and his car. I don't care how slow and stock it is, its my car. I thought of all the great moments I had in the original S14 that I bought. So many laps of drifting with people around me that had about as low of HP numbers as I.


There is something about the BNB way of life that is different. It's something that I can't find a word for. Many have tried to find it, but i think this community is it.


There has been troubles in the community lately, around what the base of BNB should be. I can say that as long as this mindset stays, I, and others, will stay. Keep on ,BNB, keep on.

So I gots a story for y'all:

I finally got to the place where the SC was: Tsukuba (wow I'm a bad speller), now lets all pretend that tsukuba (sorry again) has a car graveyard like ebisu.

So I came around the corner and saw a not-so-showroom car in the distance



Upon getting closer, I was right...



It looks like it got T-boned at some point in it's life, and it looks like the whole front suspension is f-ed up! This was pointing absoulutly straight ahead!!:



The different front bumper, hood, broken side skirt, and fender also supported this theory

Well, idk yet, but all i know is a got lots of work to do!

well, looks like i repeated last year's GRDA record: out first round haha. It feels better though, because this time i ran in my own car, n even if it was a loss, it felt good to have actually bought and built this car up.

looks like its back to the drawing board!!

so at the drawing board, I decided my SC was my worst car and defianatlely needed some love.

So once i got home after my bad loss, I tried to forget about it by fixing the suspension of the SC. From earlier pics you could see that there was a problem with the front track. It ended up I was right about the car being T-boned! I was torn on what coilovers to run because I'm always not sure what i like. I talked to Ryan down at T's Garage and we came up with some specially valved T's Garage - Spec Ohlins Coilovers. Although the car is in pieces i think it sits REALLY well on them. We will have to see how it runs!


Speaking of running it, i had always wanted a V8 car...

Haha, I was jut messing with ya dude. Not gonna stop you, but for BnB I'd prefer to just use the JZ because it's more gassroots I suppose. I also feel like that the car loses total essence of itself. Ive only used the V8 a few times because the SC's 2j is stupidly underpowered and even so, my personal SC that I run for VFD and DMA allstars runs the 2j still and can hold it's own. I just suck at driving haha.

And yeah sure haha. If you like it, I'll sell you mine. Just get cool aero though, because it looks weird on stock body Razz

N yeh I will prob go back to the 1J in the future but I thought what the heck a bought a v8 haha

So here is a little side project I have been working on:
(NOTICE: My TV was acting up and the pics look TERRIBLE)


Note the Vertex kit and GT-Styled wing

And prototype (not finished) arches, with the carbon fiber hood and trunk

Ohh and the V8 POWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAA!

I'm liking this car

So ive finally decided to move! I have always like Osaka and ive heard that you can get some good prices on housing in the area, so i pulled the trigger and started packing. This will also mean that our shop, T's Garage is moving. I have yet to talk to Ryan about what we will do but all should be good! Now i just need to find a house, and a way to get my 5 cars over the Pacific!

Yeh. The car as a whole just kinda works, n I think the staggered 17-18 rims looks good with the "kouki type-x" front haha

Stuff I need to do

1 Finish my SR-AE86 build
2 actually make the S13 drivable and clean up a little
3 get the 240 running looking good
4 redisign the S15 and rework the engine and suspension

I think I'll be needing to sell the SC sometime soon
