After months of sitting under the car cover I finally got around to installing the TE37’s. I got to say I missed driving this. The BRZ is loads of fun to drive and it’s a great daily but it lacks that thrill and excitement (and power) . It was a little wet and the combination of new unscrubed in tires made for a good time. Can’t wait to drive some more and hopefully get tuned and be pushing a little more power.
This one a little bit challenging but here it is as promised kvpfotos!!
Btw, don’t know what wheels you are going to get next so I left it blank to be filled in later! But I think you need some dish in your life haha.
Driving up the mountain was quite refreshing this past week. Finally got to see how the new mods are working. I just need to get my driving back up to par. She’ll be going down for a little bit for a refresher to sort out all the electrical gremlins, dial in the new wheel setup and refresh all the fluids. #updates #Dmiracle (at not ready)
It all starts off with a vision.
My first 240 was a beater 1989 fastback. I was still in high school and bought it hours before senior prom. It was my first time dealing with 240s before that all I’ve had were first gen RX-7’s (rotary at heart). When I first drove it I instantly fell in love with the deep growl of the dual apexi n1’s. The feeling was very different from the rx7. The ka had a lot more torque than the 12A had. I’ve always loved the way s-chassis looked since middle school and now I finally had one. But it wasn’t long before I encountered problems. Like many other schassis enthusiasts I ran into wiring problems. I spent countless hours on forums trying to research what could have gone wrong just to find out that I wired the push to start relays all wrong. I soon sold it afterwards realizing that I just didn’t have the funds to keep it at the time. Fast forward to today. I now own this fine machine. I’ve always wanted to build a type x s13. After owning a couple s13 coupes and a s14 zenki I decided it was time to return to what I first fell in love with. Another fastback. After watching countless videos of type x builds on youtube I was so inspired to build one of my own. I’ll admit that I wasn’t the only one to touch this car and when I got it and the body work and paint was show quality. But there were many things that I wanted to change and needed to be fixed after it got passed around by multiple owners. So I started to rebuild it. From the footwork to type x and some light engine mods I spent many countless hours tinkering and putting her together. I really didn’t have much time to work on it but when I did have time I would spend all of it working on it. I guess it was a labor of love. I am still not finished and to be honest I don’t think I’ll ever be finished. My vision for the car is still not to where I want it to be and I will continue to build it until it is where I want it to be.
To be continued..
