Goodnight sweet prince

I have been posting my car a lot so I figured I would throw this in the mix.
Happy holidays and all that jazz.

Plain Jane

Heeeey pete

Well, I now have cool wheels, Vienna Dish 18x9-7 18x10-1.
Winter is slowly setting in here and soon the local road we drift on will be filled up with skier/snowboader traffic. That leaves me about 2 weeks to utilize it and smoke off the giant 235's in the rear. Once I accomplish that goal I will be putting this thing on it's nuts.

Camera Update

Here are some pictures I took on my camera.

Such a pile of turds. Nothing a frame puller, overs, and paint can't fix, right? Once that happens I can lower the rear back to where it was.

Last BoiseDrift event of the year was probably the most fun so far. Photo credits to Dane, Joel, and Mirko... I think.

On the road to Choppertown

Cell phone pic of what my bike is looking like as of late. It's in the hands of the talented Matt Whitlock who is the owner of Wrecked Metals. Make sure you check out his blog. Definitely some amazing stuff coming out of his shop.

Instagram update

I'll post actual pics when I'm less busy. Looking into buying a house, drift event this weekend, and starting the motor swap next week. Then overs and paint.... and getting all the body parts to fit better.

For the halibut

Bought some ssr mk1's the other day.

I'm pretty sure i'm gonna sell the cressida so I basically bought these wheels because of how awesome they are and because it was a pretty good deal, plus they were local. Weird stuff.
Anyways, sizes are 14x10-38 and 14x12-38. Pic is with just the 10's cause the rears are straight bonkers.

Enough car stuff though. Next stop, CHOPPERTOWN.

Testing the new front

I decided to test fit the new front bumper for fun. Excuse the hideous oxidation on the hood. I'm cleaning out the garage to get the car in (it'll be a long time before it's ready) and they were chip sealing the road in front of my house. Well it ended up at my church parking lot for a few weeks. Like an idiot I parked it at the edge of the lot (the spot I chose is tucked behind a building so almost hidden) which meant my car saw three weeks of hard water from the sprinklers. Good thing I'm painting it soon.

By the way, this is properly mounted. It's not just sitting there.


I just got temporarily banned from zilvia a few days ago because i posted a video of street drifting. While looking for something to pass the time at work I found Teddy's build on NICO (his blog is The Life of a Soul Drifter) and it's inspired me to update the blog. I'm generally the one to keep quite.... (if you know me this isn't true but I guess it is on the internet) about what I'm doing but whatever.

Okay, to start out I bought this last May from a local guy for a good price.

I've had the parts for the swap (and a little more) since February. Car stuff with me takes forever. I'm currently just waiting on a premade harness from WiringSpecialties and then my motor will be in and (hopefully) running within a week or so. Hopefully the harness comes soon. I decided to have BK Industries do the swap. I know it's not the cool thing to do and I didn't plan on having someone else doing my swap but I've been super busy lately and I realized that if I want to have a competitive car, I want to make sure everything is perfect. Plus, if you couldn't already tell, it would take me 4 years to finish the swap at this rate.

KSport hooked me up with some Slide Kontrol coilovers and a hydraulic ebrake for a great price.

The coilovers will be going on next week and the hydro brake will probably go on during the swap.

I used some of the miata money to buy some wheels. I'm really stoked on these.

They're Work Bersaglio 18x10.5 -5 / 18x12 -7

Lastly (for now at least) I picked up all the aero from BH's car after he sold it. So I've got DMAX type I front, type III sides and rear, hood, front and rear fenders, roof spoiler (which I'll be selling for an Origin), and the ganadors.
That's pretty much all the big stuff for now. There's been a lot of changes, hiccups, and confusion with my build and where I want it to go but I think it's finally starting to come together.

PS Be on the look out for a post from Pete. He just sold his WRX and bought a new car that he's doing work to.

Bogus Basin hill climb
Would be a real kick in the pants, maybe next year.

New daily

I picked up a new daily to get me to work while I consolidate my 3 s chassis' into 1 s chassis.

It also will come in handy when going to the mountains, the snow, and taking my 8 kids to

soccer practice.

On the way to FormulaDrift Seattle we stopped a $1 store. When I came out I had
acquired a few new stickers.

As always, I've got plans for it. Let's see if half of those pan out. So far it's stock other
than the STi springs and impreza struts I put on it.

FD Seattle 2011

Last thursday Derek, Josh, Charlie, Kyle, Seth, and myself packed up and hit the road to Seattle to attend round 5 of Formula Drift. For Derek and I this was not the first time we had attended to this event, but for the rest of the crew this was a whole new experience. We made the trek and ended up getting to Everett in the late evening. The first thing we all wanted to do was adventure into downtown Seattle and check out the sights.

There is no real point in specifying what photos are from practice day or competition day so I'm not even going to try. We spent the next two days at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington, we saw a grip of cool cars and a ton of amazing driving.

This S14 is my idea of the perfect S-Chassis.

This R32 was a quiet show stealer. It sat all day across from the Cake Face Clothing booth. With a set of very aggressive VS-KF's it was one of my favorite cars at the show.

This pair of S2000's had me coming back all day. The cars contrasted one another perfectly. One white with polished, The other black with mag blue. I would not hesitate to say these cars had the most aggressive static fitment in the Fatlace One of One show.

This is William Bakajin's STI. This thing is insane. The wheels are 18x10.5 Volk TE-37's, and hiding behind those are a set of 380mm rotor 8 pot brembo brakes. The Do-Luck trunk add's a unique feel to the car. This thing is crazy aggressive and the attention to detail shocked me.

Here we have out 1st and 3rd place winners, Dai Yoshihara and Fredric Aasbo. They both put on an amazing show in the final 4. With Chris Forsberg coming in 2nd it was an amazing show of driving talent.

Overall Seattle was an awesome time. We had a great group of friends lookin at some bitchin cars. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I think i speak for everyone when I say Seattle can be expecting us back next year, it never disappoints.
