sabatical over! its time to get the 13 on the road......

Well after foolishly deciding to buy a house i havent had time to do much on the 13 lately, however last week the car was transported to mine on a low loader and work can begin again.

First off was fitting the aston martin brakes and some cheap coilovers a mate had lying around. the calipers are db9 rears and theyre mercedes 330mm discs!

Sadly whilst playing with the front fitment it turned out one of the front coilovers ride height adjustment has siezed! no amount of love taps from a universal tool (read BIG hammer) freed it so playtime ended. Just a couple of degrees neg camber to remove and then ill be happy - the wing is only plonked on in the pic making it look a bit off at the bottom.

I've also gotten rid of the wide wings front and rear - much prefer the look of std wings and subtle aero. and i can make my sparcos work well on std wings lol

Apologies for the phone pics - ive lost my camera in the house move

Tanner Foust

Tanner Foust drifts his 600hp Rockstar energy Scion on the Mulholland Highway, known as "the snake".
There was no rehearsal and most of the film is of Tanner's first run on a clean stretch of road.

RWB wheel collection

Shamelessly nabbed from the RWB blog, what an awesome array of wheels/tyres! I would do very bad things to own just a single set...

Bonus customer Porsche pic. One day i will own one of these...

DA Off Season

This has a kinda Ken Block type feel to it. But looks sweet none-the-less. Watch in 720p for full effect.

New things for 2010

2 cars which blew up in 2009 were Yuta's S30, and Edafe's Z33. They both look a bit different now, but imo, even better than before. Yuta, we need more pics!

Check out Yuta's blog HERE

New Tra-Kyoto car?

We've all seen the usual 6666 petrol station pics, but here's a car I hadn't seen before today. Pretty fresh! Shame about the roof scoop though.
