so on 12/30/16 i decided to go drive horse thief mile for the first time and it happened to be raining. It was my first time on the track and only 2nd time driving in the rain. It was a lot of fun and a learning experience. i got stuck once and thankfully my friend showed up right after i got stuck to pull me out. went back out a few more times then went off super hard and got a bunch of rocks in the bead of my passenger front tire so i had to call it a day early unfortunately

After horse thief i went to Hawthorne to drop my truck and trailer off and a friend picked me up. We stopped by my friend Ernie's shop to pick up some zestinos tires to test out and he was nice enough to let me drive his jzx100.


After leaving Ernie's we went to my friend Jaime's shop to hang out



We headed to a kbbq spot to meet up with one of Jaime's friends who just got back from japan. Got to see a lot of cool cars and cool people





WE then headed to Yuta's shop to hang out and talk. Was nice to hang out with Yuta again and see some of the cool cars he had at the shop





1/1/17 I was able to drive at Grange for andy's tire drift day. I spent most of my day trying to get the entry down and chasing Jose from Socalsidewayz



my day was cut a little short because jose ended up braking after he manji'd a straight section and i couldn't tell he was braking since his brake lights were always on. I put my car where his was supposed to be and by the time i could tell he was stopping and not transitioning back i couldn't slow down enough.
here is the carnage





I also ended up blowing my rear bumper up when i dirt dropped into a puddle


So after the andys tires event i just let my car sit and didnt want to touch it because I started working a little more. Here are a few tows i did that i thought were cool





the coolest one was this ferrari 250gt lusso

2/26/17 a friend of mine hosted a private day at thunderhill so I fiberglassed my car back together and got ready for the event. i wasnt able to get the bumper or fender re painted before the event but i thought it looked decent enough for a private day with friends



I decided to drive up the night before the event and camp out so i was the first person at the track when it went hot. During the time no other drivers were there i was able to test out the zestino gredge r and my friend Matt Dion was there to get some pictures of me





I enjoyed the zestinos a lot. They had a ton of grip and the car felt very controlled. The only thing was they didn't last super long like I was hoping.
The rest of my friends and my boss came and we all got to have some fun on track.



I burned through the zestinos before I could tandem with my friend Brandon. i threw on my blitz with some triangles on them and i dropped the down to 20psi in the tires and i still felt like i was ice skating.





I was also able to drive with my friend Corey and his jzx100 unfortunately I don't have any pictures of us driving together.





while i was tandeming with Corey i felt my car lose power but i kept in it until i heard knocking. i pulled off track and my car shut off and wouldn't crank. I loaded my car up and got it all ready to leave then hung around with my friends till they were finished. I got home and unloaded the car and let it sit for a few weeks. I finally decided to pull the sr and get it looked at by my friend Justin. I forgot how horrible my engine bay looked



A few weeks later I went down to SoCal to visit and Ernie was kind enough to invite me to the zestino's BBQ where i was able to check out and sit in Satsukawa's R32





A week or so later Justin sent me pictures of what broke on my sr









Needless to say I started searching for a new block. After that I found a block locally and was able to give everything to Justin to get it all machined and ready. I picked up some little things like a Tomei oil block, Greddy Theromstatic oil filter relocation, Trust Style midmount manifold, Tial 38mm wastegate, GTX2860, Defi VSD II, Strobes and new aero







this is me test fitting the gtx to see what it would look like



I pulled all the wheels off my car to down to wheel flip to get them cleaned and resealed as well as my other pair of Weds built to be my new fronts



my friend let me borrow his daytons so i could have something my car could sit on at my friends muffler shop



My boss had me help him load up a duesenberg motor to take to the Blackhawk Museum and I was able to see a few of his boss' vehicles also













I haven't really been doing much with the car since we are still waiting for the motor to come back from the machine shop. I did go to the Peterson Museum in L.A. and got to see a lot of cool stuff there













hopefully soon ill have the motor back in and send the car off to paint to make the kit fit right

My boss was nice enough to let me borrow a tow truck to tow my car to
Justin's shop.



the next day he started taking apart the engine and chassis harness. I decided to have him simplify and clean up the engine harness and build me a new chassis harness using all oem plugs







10/11/17
I went on vacation to Costa Rica for a week and while I was gone Justin assembled my sr and mounted it in the car

















Now for the Pictures from Costa Rica starting with the view from the Airbnb









I went on a monkey tour and saw a lot of cool animals











After the monkey tour I went and got food at a restaurant that was made around a US cargo airplane that had been shot down nicaragua in 1986



A couple of my parts I had ordered showed up to Justin's shop while i was in Costa Rica



I was lucky enough to be able to use this sidekick to drive around Costa Rica



I saw an awesome b13 while I was out there



Decided to relax a little and go to the driving range at an expensive resort



The week before I went to Costa Rica there was a big tropical storm that went through the country. The storm uprooted a huge tree at the resort



I flew from Costa Rica to LA to relax a few more days before jumping back into work. While i was there USC had a car show with a lot of really cool cars













When I got back to norcal Justin was just leaving out of the country for business. When he got back I went over to talk to him and figure out when i would be able to send my car to paint. We also figured out how to fit the turbo and wastegate to the manifold and how to run the intercooler piping, exhaust and oil cooler lines.
