Bought some stuff, had to make some choices.
At FB3, I road in Sebastian R32. S-Chassis Suspension and SR20. It felt very light in drift and snappy. It blew me away.
I was really wanting this after leaving but I have just retuned the RB20 for 300PS at about 1 bar. I still haven’t driven a event in the tune and I want to drive a full season since I haven’t really in the past 2 years.
So I spent my money on aero and wheels lol
I ordered a BN sports hood and bought BN style fenders.
With the rear over fenders, the car is transforming into a more outlandish build. It’s not street style that much, more D1SL?
I hope it turns out well. I have decided to hang my wheel set up from 17/17 to 17/18.
I’ve elected to go with a 18×9.5 +12 TE37 along with a 10mm spacer in order to fill out the fenders. 18×10.5 +15 fits pretty much perfect but I would have to run a tire size that would possibly causes uses with other components of the car.
Body work and paint are in full motion right now so I am hoping to have the car back to do 1 event before the year ends. After that, I need to check the health of the motor to make sure that it will last a full season or if I need to figure out a new power plant.
This is my current inspiration for the R32.
But also at the same time, this is a possibility (only with the blessing of JR)
But for this, my driving would have to reflect the style of the car and right now, I don’t believe it does.
It was 2 years since I had been back to a Final Bout and I defiantly can tell that I needed it.
I always come back from FB with more positivity. I guess I begin to get into a rut after a while and it’s not good. I become toxic.
I’m just trying to ride the high and keep being better. Learn lessons from my mentors.
Final Bout was more than cars to me. It was friendships. Living out ideas I’ve had for a very long time. It was inspiration. It was a dream.
I will never be able to repay those who created the event. But I can strive to continue the passion that it created.
I’m ready to just be at peace with cars right now. No internet BS, no negative feelings, no rude comments. No bad blood if we share the same passions.
Made some new friends which excited me for next year. I would like to have a solid drift season again. One for the record books. Let’s see if we can carry each other to the finish line of that goal.
Final Bout will live in all of us. It’s our turn to carry the torch.
Typical stuff. Nothing fancy. I’ll strip and clean them up. New pads and Rotors.
I had to rush to my hotel to write this post.
I’m in Louisiana for work , looking on Craigslist. I find Z32 NA 2+2 rear brakes assemblies for $100. Go to get them and its 2 young dudes (18 and 19 years old).
I spent 4 hours talking to them about life. Things to think about, things to no to worry about and my experiences. It was pretty amazing and i wanted to tell everyone about it. I really hope those dudes took 1% of what I said to heart and hopefully it makes them that much more successful. I feel really proud about this, full of positivity, and inspired by my own words.
I want the “o” to be a world and of course, the J and Y are my initials, a play of enjoy. i think it would be cool to make a logo or sticker or something. spread some good karma and do the right thing. be honest to those who need it.
maybe ill get this rolling
My car came with these Cadillac brembos. They are too new age for me. Plus I can sell them to make money back. Win/win
I put Z32’s on but forgot pictures. I’ll take some later.
