Shiroi Usagi S14 – Motorkhana Skids

Advertisements

I checked my fluids

Woow I am prepared… Mostly.. Scary thing is I still don’t know what plugs are in the s14. I haven’t touched them since picking the car up from the Kobe Docs back in 2006. After a bucket load of track days they are still charging so I figure, if it ain’t broke.

Dusting off the Cobwebs

Rain on a public holiday = perfect day for working on the s14…
Feels like ages since I have done anything to the old girl.



XYZ Racing S13 – Repco Pro Drift Tour Wrap Up

Woooow, what a day!!!!

The first round of the Stadium Drift Pro Tour went off with a bang on the weekend with a host of new cars and drivers making the journey to Queensland Raceway.

It was the first event for myself and the Performance Suspension XYZ s13 drift car and from the outset we knew it would be a testing day, but what I didn’t realize is how much fun it would be. Sure we didn’t win, nor probably win any battles, but I was impressed with how much potential the car has.

From the first practice run I knew that the s13 was on struggle street in the HP department, with the car, more or less, being unable to hold a 3rd gear slide…. It took a bit to get the hang of but by the end of the day, I succumbed to the fact that I would be stuck in 2nd for the majority of the run (>_<)

Never mind that, I was having an absolute ball. The car was getting some crazy lock and the XYZ brakes, well I can’t speak highly enough of them. I have never driven a car with so much stopping power. I think I will need a set of these on my s14 A.S.A.P.

Big thank you goes out to Chris’s father, David Jones from Performance Suspension for providing the car and assistance on the day… Unfortunately we will be unable to make the next Stanthorpe and Wakefield Rounds, but the car will be back out for the second Stanthorpe round in July.. In the meantime we will more than likely be entering the Archerfield Drift and short track series…

XYZ S13 Silvia in Action this Weekend!!!!!!!!

With the car untested on a big track and struggling in the hp department I am predicting an weekend full of lol’s and backwards entries.. wooot hooot.
