my new drift project :)
User avatar #115 to #69 - thamuz ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Love the car,not really the body kit on it. Im not big on Japanese imports(as I love American muscle) but theres some that I can go with.

Is it running or do you gotta work on it? I plan on turning my truck into a weekend warrior truck with dirt racing. Kind of like a Trophy truck,but still to drive on the streets

i tore that kit off the day i got it runs/drives 100% and i got it real cheap! im planning on making a full drift spec road legal car out of it! i dont know alot about trophy trucks caus im irish and we dont have that here, but in the Dirt series games its awesome! you should get a holden ute if you want a pickup drift car, i think theyre ls1 or ls2's in them!

What I want is a Nissan Fairlady I like those.

Ever seen the conversion with the Skylines to the 240? Pretty neat.
#133 to #130 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
yeah, pretty expensive though!
#139 to #133 - thamuz ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Just because its expensive doesnt make it worth it :)   
   
I have a 1965 Chevy Corvair 110 4 door,I plan on taking the Getrax transaxle from a Pontiac Fiero and dropping a supercharged 350 small block in the back. Looking into maybe overboring or making it a stroker engine. Not sure yet,gotta find a nice quality used block thats not got cracks and 						****					 in it.

just looked up a corvair, that thing is badass, but why would you put the engine in the back? it would dramatically change the handling! it took porsche about 15 years to get it right! id love to put a 1jz my car its a 2.5 twin turbo, but they cost about €2000 thats a little over 3000 USD, the whole car cost me €2400!! ive never even seen a stroker running but im sure its far more expensive than boring it out!
this is what you need bro!

Better handling with it in the back,I intend on it to be a street sleeper daily driver. I dont want people to think I can tear the doors off their car,and it tends to have the cops to be quiet as well.

Ive driven a few Corvairs(the Spider was my favorite) and they handle amazingly well,and they did kick the **** out of the same era Porsche's.

i didnt realise they came with the motor in the back! i thought you were going to do a conversion! my knowledge of muscle cars is very limited! best of luck with it bro! go smoke a 80,000 viper when your done!
User avatar #147 to #146 - thamuz ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Oh of course they did. Was designed to compete with Volkswagen's Beetle and the imports from Japan. Aircooled and very light on its feet so to speak give it great handling.

I could probably beat a Viper for the first 10M but after that it would probably smoke me :P
#148 to #147 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
haha doesnt take much to smoke a beetle but i suppose it is a 65! you should theres a video on youtube of some who puts really simple supercharger kits on like a regal and other crap and he was making more power than cobra mustangs so you shouldnt have any trouble smoking exotics with a little bit of tuning! just type in sleepers and its like the 3rd video!
User avatar #149 to #148 - thamuz ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Theres a team working on an all electric Corvair,its pretty awesome.

Ive seen a few Corvairs with a V8 conversion done,they flip the transmission forward and then mount a small block on it,you lose the rear seats,but you have a sporty fast car You need to login to view this link looks and works better with the two door body styles.

A Yenko Stinger is nice too,but those are getting incresingly rare to even see.
#150 to #149 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
id go withe v8 conversion screw the back seats, if you really want to go nuts you coud put a blower up through the ceiling and put a vent on it so its not visible!, not sure if the engine would sit forward enough though it probably sits under the rear glass so that wouldnt work too well! how do they keep the engines cool in the back? front mounted motors have plenty of air flow but the rear mounts are just stuck in the trunk!
User avatar #151 to #150 - thamuz ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
They make underbody scoops and leave most of it open,and then they mount the radiator and cooling for hte transmission,oil,etc in the "trunk" of the car.

#98 to #87 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
im used to this crap, anyone thats ever been in one knows theyre not for kids! get one you wont regret it!
User avatar #111 to #98 - crabcorehero (12/30/2012) [-]
well i'm only 16 and i just got my permit so it won't be for a while if i do get one haha. what motor is in that? sr20?
#116 to #111 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
its the 180sx jap version with SR20DET
User avatar #154 to #116 - crabcorehero (12/31/2012) [-]
nice my brother has a 94 sentra se-r with the sr20 and i'm in love with it
User avatar #82 to #69 - agreathobo (12/30/2012) [-]
More like your new rice project. Please tell me how much horses your pushing and that might just make up for that hideous body kit.
#136 to #82 - agreathobo (12/30/2012) [-]
and if your wondering what i drive, im in the process of taking a 240sx off of my friends hand. its the one on the left. it has an sr20 with a single turbo that he installing along with with a new intake, and it already has a limited slip diff. All in all, itll be pushing around 300hp which is enough because with the striped interrior it is light enough for our local track.
User avatar #135 to #82 - agreathobo (12/30/2012) [-]
Love the thumbs guys, but seriously, in this picture it looks like a ricer, the kits probably does nothing to decrease drag and probably adds weight. Those rims are okay, but your probably not going to drift in those. And i doubt that is a carbon fibre hood, just looks like a normal hood with primer, and if i could get it at the right price i would have bought that too. And believe me, i was not spouting hate of any sort, the 180/ 240sx are my favorite cars exspecially with sr20's. When it comes to cars i know exactly what im talking about. Hope it looks better when your done with it.
#145 to #135 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
like i said the body kit was actually ripped off the car straight away and is sitting in my garage, so is that horrible spoiler, the rims look ok in the photo but are actually completly destroyed the chrome is all rashed and the spokes are all chipped so i will be using them for drifting, the hood is fibreglass its really light but the black has faded to matt and il be selling it, its a sr20det engine and i got the car dirt cheap so i couldnt say no! the car lookes completly **** in the photo and IRL, but it was bought for the sole purpose of a rebuild so i dont care, and i hope it looks better when im done with it too! im hoping it will look something like this, without the big gay wing and different rims!
#97 to #82 - finns (12/30/2012) [-]
well at least we can agree on the bodykit being hideous, its off the car now its a SR20DET 2.0L TURBO. its factory output is around 200bhp, At the minute with some mods on it its running around 300bhp but it can go to over 400bhp with factory internals. not bad for a banger. Now could you upload a pic of your car so i can also play the hate game?
User avatar #85 to #82 - crabcorehero (12/30/2012) [-]
who the **** cares if its japanese? it's a car. it has the same purpose as a ford, or a chevy, what difference does it make if its from a different country? and i bet he would do more in that car than you could ever do in your american **** car.
User avatar #99 to #85 - gardenmanly (12/30/2012) [-]
I don't think he was implying japanese cars were crap at all. He called it a ricer, which just means like a car with ground effects, loud exhaust, other tweaks that add to looks and sound but not really performance. Usually ricers are imports, that's true, but he was not saying all imports are crap. Additionally, the "my new drift project" comment sort of proves that its not a ricer at all, considering significant performance changes need to be made to create a good drift car. Either way , he should not be criticizing, everyone has their own preferences. he probably drives a **** car anyway.
User avatar #100 to #99 - gardenmanly (12/30/2012) [-]
oh god... I just contradicted myself too... everyone has their own preferences....

I'm sure his car is lovely
#93 to #85 - anonexplains (12/30/2012) [-]
"American **** car"? You're spouting the same ignorance as him. Please... stop.
User avatar #90 to #85 - theoriginalzombie (12/30/2012) [-]
You just completely contradicted yourself. First you say it doesn't matter where the car is from and then you go and say American **** car. How do you know he drives an American? He could be driving euro

Damn, who pissed you off today?
