700bhp daily


There's something weirdly rewarding seeing peoples faces as you drive past 'em in a car that really doesn't want to be driven... on the street, let alone in the snow. Bizarrely the R32's surprisingly drivable - monumental lag + 4wd = bwahaha FWD monkeys!

Unfortunately, recently imported 20-year-old car + colossal amounts of salt = hello rust, so every outing means out comes the hose and two very annoyed folks when your steep drive is sheet ice in the morning. Ooops.

It also sucks anus when your neighbours (living on a busy, main road) think they're house lives in the countryside, and even the noise of the electric gates is too loud for them. 104db of Skyline idle really doesn't go down well either...

The only option you have left is to whack out the Bee-R!

Wall Rubbin'


I found these photos on an old memory card and realised I'd never done anything with them. Just a few shots of the 2009 JDM Allstars Event at Wembley.

350's back ..........




Still needs the ride height sorting out, but Im chuffed with the results. Wheels are 10x18 Work Equip, ET -41 front, ET -44 rear, with a Chargespeed kit and custom arches.

Im actually in danger of having all of my cars back and working all at the same time - scary.

Sensible Hat

Picked up some SENSIBLE size wheels for the front yesterday.

SSR Professor 17x9 +19.
Should sit well with the 25mm spacers.
Just have to decide if I should paint the centres of these black or the 18s silver? I'm feeling silver.....

Dailying the 200


My civic failed its MOT so I'm having to daily the 200 whilst I find the parts to get it sorted (Garage quoted me 160gbp & 140gbp for a lambda and cat - wtf).

Bang and the engines gone

Ok i think ive just about had enough now, engine went pop weekend before last, my fault entirely, i missed a gear out on track 4th to 3rd at 130ish mph, smoke everywhere, i think its melted the rings amongst other things (i ve not pulled it apart yet), bottom end seems ok though, no knocking, but lots of piston slap.....Do i re build again or turn gay and stick an sr or ls1 in it?

Not many music posts on OP, but this needs to be downloaded by everyone. Don't sleep on this. If you don't already have it, DL it from the link below.

ClubFR Drift Day



Check out JDM Chicago's sick ClubFR Drift day coverage. Great photos and some seriously hard cars. Nice to see some of the Chicago guys still rocking their O.P stickers.

Its been a while

Well after a long period of me hating this car, I have once again fallen in love with it. I decided to put some time a side and clean it properly.




Just need to sort out the WWII aircraft noise coming from the viscous fan!

What is Okishima Program?

This gets asked quite a lot. Heres a scan from Banzai (Sept 09, Issue 95) which explains OP better than I can. I scanned Ali's cover whilst I was at it (Oct 09, Issue 96).


Joe's 180sx and Ali's 200sx

Joe's stance is looking spot on. Also a pic of Ali's car, and Joe's car in the air at Ali's workshop (Unit18).
