  • Your drifter: Before & After

    Hi guys. I started a similar thread on another forum, and it turned out great. So I figured I should do the same here

    The point is to post pictures of your car before you began to modify it for drifting and after you where "done". Whether you just lowered it, or buildt a full out drift car, I want to see it

    Some rules though:

    1. Only two pics. Before and after!
    2. Maximum width 600px!
    3. Feel free to comment, but keep it tidy and on topic!

    I'll start by posting my 180sx (or 200sx as it's called here in Norway).

    When I bought it it had a T28 turbo, FMIC, rear arb and some 15" alloys. I've been on a budget on this project, and as it sits now it's total cost is about $5000...

    1. Tanabe coilovers
    2. J-blood bodykit
    3. 2-way Kaaz LSD
    4. Stripped interior
    5. Sparco seat and Sabelt 4-point harness
    6. Poly bushings (rear subframe and front arb)
    7. Manifold, elbow and downpipe
    8. HKS cat-back
    9. 17" MIM alloys (cheap )

    Not near finished, but at least it drifts well and will hopefully be reliable

              Heres mine. Can't be assed sitting here typing the mods as I need a dump.

              Its a genuine 1998 RPS13 180SX Type X. Was a little sad when I brought her in Japan. I recently sold it to go live in the UK! What a dumb move, this place sux!

              Now it looks like this. (Actually I think it has been trashed since the new owner is lazy)

                              during valmorphanication


                              whiel under more valmorphanication and doing some testing

                              and now it looks like this since we finished the conversions
