Photo dump, cause why not.
Photos from Modern Automotive Performance's "Proving Grounds", my group helps run the drifting portion of this event, so a majority of my time here is spent helping out instead of driving. Still managed to go through 2 sets of tires, the car ran great. Only problem was my radiatior fan controller decided to quit working towards the end of day 2, which was ok cause i was out of tire anyways!

Started doing some stuff again.
Took the subframe out to fix the bushings i tore, and the traction rod arm mount i tore

Posted Image

I realized I hadn't taken many photos of the suspension swap the 1st time around so i took a few while it was out.
It is an S14 nissan subframe modified to fit, and mated to the front portion of the starion subframe to utilize the stock mounts, and make up for the size difference.

Posted Image

Posted Image

This "hump" section did not clear the floor, and had to be trimmed, and boxed in.

Posted Image

the mount that the control arm is looking for had to be relocated to my frame rail. which i promptly broke when i crashed the car (never did take photos of version 1)

Posted Image

and the new, improved, boxed,  and reinforced mount

Posted Image

the purple arms my buddy chris made for me, they're more adjustable than the stock stuff, and should handle dropping a tire in the dirt at the track better.

Posted Image

And while I was letting the paint set up on the frame rails I was looking over the car and how much i hated the wiring harness just hangin out in the engine bay and chassis, So i decided to practice my wiring patience by redoing (mostly cleaning out) the body harness from the dash back, which actually came out quickly (cause there isnt much for interior). when it goes back in ill do my best to tuck and hide everything. Then ill get after the engine bay
Posted Image

I found this video buried in one of my folders from one of the 2 events i made it to last year, the black s14 is actually the one that i tboned 2 seasons ago, we've both recovered. (I hate the way that exhaust sounds, I might be messing with that soon as well idk.

Yeah earlier models were 4 lug. I had to drill 1 new hole for the top hat on each side. The bottoms mount to a stud on the knuckles

The front is also s14, with the rack

Typical of me to wait, I registered for ClubFR's DDLE (drift day limited edition), then started getting after finishing the projects i started this winter.
The wiring harness is back in, but I still hate it, and will probably gut the entire car next winter. Id prefer to start from scratch and remove all of the unnecessary bits instead of moving all of the original stuff to where i want it, but this will do for now.

This airdam has seen some dirt, ive run over it twice, and it survived the T-bone incident. But now my driveway chews up that 30 year old urethane everytime i pull in/out of my driveway...
SCCRRAAAPEE! followed by me cringing and swearing.

Posted Image

I've always liked how front splitters look, and decided to try my hand at one.
Menards sells 4x8 sheets of ABS plastic sheeting 1/4in thick. Picked up one of those and started tracing out designs.

Posted Image

I had planned on some winglets on either side but was unsure how the material would hold up to a bend over time so I'm leaving it flat for now

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

You can kinda see my corner damage on the bottom of the air dam here

Posted Image

I still have some mounting points to finish up and trimming/ finish work, and I've got enough leftover material to try out some other ideas
