WTF IS GOING ON?!?!

By nismo300zr2

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

:-/ so im driving the second stringer now and all of a sudden i hear heinous clunking from under the car. but hmmm.. no vibrations in the stick. what could it be? jacked it up, a bracket holding in the mid joint of my driveshaft was missing a bolt! and the other was about to fall out as well.

just my luck lately -.-

the trucks

By nismo300zr2

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

so once i needed a workhorse to pull my toys to shows and races.. i decided on a CHEVY avalanche- after seeing the sticker price on a Escalade. When i went to the chevy dealer, i didnt stop at one avalanche, and instead went straight over to the gray ram 1500 longbed that was sitting way in the corner. i knew i had to have it. it was a good truck, but after about a year i realized i wanted more power and more options, so i found the 2500 on Ebay in TX some 20hrs away. I took the 1500 down with the flatbed in tow, and used the 2500 to haul the 1500 back home without a hiccup ^_-

the mods are coming real soon... stay tuned.

HPDE

If you dont know what it is,.. you need to find out and experience it!
High Performance Drivers Education is where you learn the capabilities of your car... and more importantly YOUR capabilities as a driver!
After years of doing shows, drag racing and drifting, i was finally able to take the Z to a roadcourse and DRIVE the car!!! check out the pics.. feel free to ask any questions.
Im planning on doing as many as i can this year, maybe ill meet one of you at the track!

whats going on?!!?

By nismo300zr2

i leave for a bit and come back to a new site :P well, couldnt say i didnt see it coming. the only way to have fun with the comments again is to have dedicated moderators and boot or ban those getting unruly from posting. ANYWAY!- so i have now taken my 300zx to laps around the famous Virginia INtl' Race way. DAMM!!! learning smoothness is everything. learning my car's REAL capabilities are awesome. iv've got new parts for the toyo the truck and of course the Z.... pics to come!!! how do you like my first photoshopping edit?

seems noone has noticed....

-hint- look at ANY other Z32 (90-99 style)300zx. =D

heyy can some one lv a msg or post or SOMETHING... all of my challenges i send out i leave a comment to go along with it.. do you guys SEE that? because i havnt got any comments on any of the incoming challenges and i just find it hard to believe that noone is saying anything. Am i wasting my time leaving a challange comment that noone is seeing? :P

SoFreshAndSoClean

By nismo300zr2

another week down... another week closer to coming home and seeing, cleaning, DRIVING my Z. Being in Iraq has its obvious disadvantages... but coming back with a little extra $$$ is always FUN!!!

If anyone wants to go for a serious drive in Feb.. i'll be on VIR's full course with the Z Feb 10th!!

Hachi Roku Progression

By nismo300zr2

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

HachiRoku is Japanese for Eight-six.
AE-86 is the chassis for this and other 1985-1987 corolla/levin GTS.

it was bought in 2002 for its RWD platform, PRICE and performance possibilities.

even driving it around in its stock form is a blast.

a few mods have been done from intake/exhaust and springs/swaybar.

the first big change has been done.. a complete motor rebuild, with much more to come...

HAPPY NEW YEAR to me!

By nismo300zr2

And to you! :P

So in my short time here, ive been placed on the front page as the featured battle representing the Japanese cars vs the US vette, but sadly it was taken off before the battle really grew due to some serious flaming and drama resulting from a party outside of the battle.

Maybe that had a little to do with returning to the main page as a featured garage, but either way im really glad for the exposure. thanks Motortopia!

Ill be headed back from Iraq this month.. when i get home, stay tuned for all the pics and videos to come!

thanks for checking out the page, leave a comment let me know what you think of it!

MOTORTOPIA!! and the game-

By nismo300zr2

So this site is getting bigger and bigger in the motor community.. i've referred it to friends as a myspace+rankmyride but BETTER. And it is as it has less for stuff about people and more for the cars themselves. The same goes for the RMR site and the challenges. ive noticed the same 'politics' and vote for me going on, but it cant be helped all too much. if people are that desperate for the vote they will go to w/e extreme they need to. Oh well. i have better things to do then rally the internet, but its fun to make a few clicks and read the comments. Helps with boredom.
