Another powercruise done! Lots of rain and not alot of drifting but the sun came out and sundays drift session made up for the rest of the weekend. The new slip road layout is awesome and should make for some great battles when combined with the DA layout!

Camo, Alex and Keegs were there cutting a few laps with Jabbit from the BLAZE Unit! As usual was an awesome day that ran smooth as silk with most drivers progressing through out the day.
Was also good to see a few female drivers having ago!
All in all its hard to go wrong with beats, sun and drifting..............

Recently decided that 2012 will be the year i start a new project. After spending a month in japan the one car that stood out for me was Kumakubo's old gd impreza. I picked up a bare 04 STI shell and have been slowly working out how to transfer the Nissan running gear i had been stockpiling for the past year. The plan is to run an rb25 neo motor and box as well as a gtr diff and drive shafts. Also a hybrid Nissan/Subaru suspension set up.
Shell hanging out in its new home. Being able to push it around the shed makes life real easy!
The engine bay dimensions are basically identical to a Silvia but with the strut towers further back towards the fire wall. This was the first trial fit just to see how much of the fire wall has to come out.
This is the new position the RB is sitting in now. Required a fair bit of cutting to fit that far back. The mounts will also transfer down to the tubular front cross member, should be enough to hold everything together.
Decided to go a different way with engine mounts. The standard Subaru cross member is a disaster so il make a tubular cross member and mount the rack and engine off it as close to the sump as possible.
engine and chassis side mounts ready to go
Gear box cross member should also help stiffen the mid section of the car
