Final Bout Prep

FullSizeRender-1
We are down to the last month trying getting our cars finished and ready for Final Bout 2. Paint should have been done before the season started but money and wanting to drive more then anything else really held us back.

My car is undergoing a bunch of changes. Im running 18″ rear wheels, BN type 3 aero, going back to metal front fenders and building some Blitz 03’s as my main wheels.

Justin is running Origin Labo type 3 front fenders on his silvia to make the Wisefab fitment less ridiculous. He is still running BN type 2 aero and adding a roof wing, everything else is pretty much the same with his setup.

Our other team mate Scott who is joining us for our trip to Wisconsin, is the one who has a lot of work to get done. His car was pretty much no where near completion, so he has been working day and night getting his whole build done in one month. He has a S13 Silvia with Origin Labo type 3 overs, Wisefab, and is running a RB20DET to name a few things.

We will be painting our cars this week, looking to have at least 2 out of 3 done in 1 week. This is a very stressful month for all of us, but we cant wait to be at Club FR surrounded by people keeping the style alive in this country.

East Coast Bash 2015

Club Loose East Coast Bash was just as awesome as it is every year. This is the best grassroots drift event in the country and we are so lucky to be able to take part in it. If there is one event you should try and make, its this one.

This year was looking promising because of the few local teams that got their cars done so they could come out and shred with everyone. We got to drive with Colin from Road Party and Tom from Front Street Drift Club all weekend. It was a blast to finally be driving with some more awesome cars/dudes instead of just each other and the few others we drive with regularly.

Saturday went well for the most part, cars stayed together all day until the right before the last heat when I found out my clutch fan decided to suck something up and throw it at my radiator. We tried to fix it real quick with some JB weld so i could get out for the last session, but it wasnt holding up. That really killed me because the last heat of ECB Saturday is really the big show for everyone. I had to sit that one out and try to figure out what I was gonna do about my car. Luckily Justin’s car was good to go and I heard he put on a good show for everyone.

The next morning I really wanted to drive so I found a Koyo radiator and used my teammate Jesse’s clutch fan from his s13 for the day, mine was seized up. Justin’s car was good to go so we had a awesome time driving on Sunday.

Only problems the whole weekend included Justin’s wastegate line popping off, my radiator cracking, and a mystery oil leak that I still need to find. Overall I have to say it was a good weekend and we cant wait for next year. Hopefully our cars will actually be completed for once.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this ECB one to remember. I dont have much media from this event so i just added some pictures that our friend Connor Croak took that weekend.

Finally.

Its been long enough, we finally decided to make an official blog for the business and team. We will be posting everything here. From shop work to personal car builds, and any events we drive. If there are cameras around, then it’ll end up here.

2015 is looking promising. The cars are almost ready for the season, just a few finishing touches and we are ready to break stuff. We did one Club Loose event with them halfway complete and had a blast. Here are a few pictures from Opening Moves at Raceway Park.
