Well it's fuuny how things work out, My friend who I sold my auto S14 too wants to trade cars. He said his is too nice to race and would be worried about it lol. So I thought about it and decided to swap with him, a few postives is that the car had AC from the factory where as mine didn't have that option. His car is already painted so the body is in better shape even tho I'm no fan of the color. The minus is me having to spend another 1k on the arms again lol and buy Zbrakes all over again or buy a brake upgrade kit. I'm keeping my dash since he killed his, my coil overs motor,trans,exhaust, lights. I'm not going to put the RB into that car, sadly it's time to say good bye and hello to the VE+T build.

Well time for a update. Took my car to the track a few months ago for the 1st time to get some numbers on it. The day started out pretty good other than the car feeling like it was down on power.
Took it easy on the 1st pass on street tires and ran a 13.1@105
2nd pass I decided to no lift shift keep the turbo spooled and thats the end of the story.
Not safe for work.

That shit sucked ass! I was so pissed. The most I could figure was too much wheel spin in 2nd then from 2nd too fast. I couldn't hear the motor with the helmet on because the car is so quiet lol. Well what ever I had time to get over it. I was going to get rid of the car but I changed my mind since it's not that bad. I already have a door and new front fender for it, the rear 1/4 I could prob just throw on a widebody over fender but that would bother me. Going to get it fixed at a body shop when I get a enough cash and repaint it from blk. My friends want to do a road race track car and I want to drop a VK45DE in it. Time will tell. Now moving on from this sad moment.

Called up my friend and said ok I'm ready for my old S14 now lol. struck a deal and the car was mine.

He brought the car to me, good friends are hard to find. Needed a little work tho, gas tank cracked and needed to be changed so that was the 1st order. After that I fixed the alarm and put my head lights on it. Now I have a car with AC which is perfect for my rwd VET build im going to do.

Found the JDM silvia Zenki badge online and threw it on the hood.

Then got the rear Silvia Emblem and put it where the USDM 240sx one went.

Then got some new clear corners.

Then installed Altima fans because my friend left the stock AC fan for cooling on the motor. works good for the winter but when the temps start to climb and your going up hill forget about it. Also threw my Koyo from my RB motor too.

Then some LED lights

Replaced most of the bulbs so far except for the brake lights. Also trying to finish up my NX so I can take this car down for the Motor swap and build.

Dang, sorry to hear that about your old 240. Glad you are ok in that crash.

Pretty neat you were able to "call in the backup" and move along quickly.

I had no clue this happened back in February.

Yeah he was bugging me a while to buy his S14 but I just couldn't justify it since mine worked and I really didn't want to start over yet. He was elated when he heard that I crashed lol. I sold all the good stuff from the RB20 to help pay for the new S14. Sold he head with the Tomei cams and valve springs, The protech turbo manifold, the Ripps intake manifold and the RB25DET transmission and my old RB20DET transmission. No going back to a RB at this point, If I change my mind for some crazy reason I'll drop in a RB26 with a Z33 transmission.

Dang that sucks. Glad you are safe! New S14 looks great!

Some old video's I made while testing my camera settings. The more vibrant ones are from a newer Sony camcorder @ 60p and the older ones are from the cannon I had before I went HD. Love the Sony camcorders the image stabilization works wonders.
