my dream oem wheels the r33 gtr have arrived...long time waiting for this....17x9 offset +30 not much but it will do (i dont trust wheel spacer hahaha)~it came off a r32 gtr that was bought in from United kingdom..thanks bro Nain for selling it to me at a very2 reasonable price :) also bought a pair of china tyres for the rear~
sample of x8 using the "legend" wheels mark II cresta
why i called it legend? IMHO this wheel is a favorite choices among drifter for spare usedall over the world,and if u look at yahoo auction japan the price is maintain around 60,000 yen~compare to a r34 gtr wheels
After so long wanting for a stock car,finally i got one! its not a FR but definitely a 4door~1993 1.5m Proton Wira. its not in the best condition,still need to repair a few things but with a price tag of below rm9k,u can't expect much~
guess who this is? *hint for sure its not me LOL
now i can retire Jyu from its daily drive duty and focus on its build :)
i been delaying the waterpump issue for a while,im pretty bored having to refill the water everytime i make a stop~this end now!
its either this (rm150) or a new set of waterpump that cost almost rm2k huhuh..after ordering the seal,have to wait about 2 week for it to arrived from japan..
taking a feel~lol
the aftermath,look at the things that need to be removed before he can pull out the waterpump
removing the seal ain't easy,as the thing is old and fall apart piece by piece~
my mechanic told me that the shaft is rusted,and this might not work as the waterpump can still leak,i told him to go for it. luckily everything turn okay,if not im considering to change it to a non-hydrolic waterpump~which gonna cost me more ka ching! $$$ hahahah
there goes half of my Saturday sitting at the workshop,but it was well worth it~
Luke of Hashiriya Exports quoted that"For anyone that has ever owned a stock turbo JZX you would know these things are not smoke machine which you see all plastered onwer the internet, they are heavy cars and the standard turbos blow ass and have zero power after 5000rpm."
i myself own a jzx but in a different chassis,for all i know x9 is heavier than x8,IMHO power wise for daily usage is more than enough but im not sure during drifting... i know drift track oversea are more bigger so HP is definitely an issue..
maybe my buddy Ben Kunk and Hiro Sumida can help me with this?
p/s:~i do agree with Luke that standard turbos blow!~lol...
working on saturday from 8a.m till 9p.m for this 1 Malaysia Music Marathon by the special children to be put in Malaysian Book of Records the children came from different kind of special school around Malaysia.autism,deaf,blind,down syndrome and many more. this girl is blind,but she play several song with the piano.
after sitting and watching all this great performances, made me realize that sometimes we forgot how lucky we are living in this world.things that we take for granted,while some people haven't got a chance to see,hear,talk,or even feel.lets be more grateful and appreciate life.
the part that touch me the most,is when a group of deaf children performing Michael Jackson - Heal the world using sign language.sorry,no actually video of it,phone too crappy~
