I just saw this on Nissan Challenge as I just joined the group.... Your build is very similar to mine, but had a question, I have 18x10.5 on the front and going 30mm extenstion in lower arm....

Did you pound the firewall to get full articulation in the wheel and tire? or maybe tire size is smaller?

Cool stuff

Hey welcome to Nissan Challenge. I have 18x9.5 +22 (265 30 18) and 15mm spacers in front (circuit sports s14 FLCA) and have no issue with it rubbing on the firewall, only on the front wheel well area.


.................................................. .................................................. .......

few pics from last event.
Streets of willow 1:23.4xx
Wasn't able to beat my personal best lap time with hankook TDs and brembos so clearly I'm doing something wrong.
I'm gonna get back to drawing board and figure out how to make this thing faster.

Don't slide my mom,



This wing is actually from an evo10. When I took the measurements,evo mount width was the closest to the s13 hatch, and the height seemed to work out perfect. (time attack rule book states that wing cannot be higher than the roof, plus 3d shaped wings are effective if it's mounted lower than the roof). There are three studs on each wing posts that goes through the trunk and uses nyloc to hold it in place. it's pretty sturdy. rule of the thumb is to be able to stand on the wing.
Rear diffuser will be added sometime later. I have not had time to work on it.

I do not think cables are necessary as it does not flex much. I think that's mainly for looks (I have not had personal experience with it).

I think you meant a050. those are actually Hankook TDs. They are good but I prefer nexen sur4g!

Mainly because of the price, and TDs put me at upper class. With Nexens, I can run street class with laptimes not too far away from TDs

Thank you!

650hp must be handful haha.
Ohlins pcv 8kg 6kg, whiteline front sway bar, all of the arms are aftermarket (mixed brands), stock knuckles, s14 subframe.

Battery! I am so happy you still around. Man.... life really gets in the way some times, but I am determined to finish my build during thanksgiving. So I ended with 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 +15's all around. Going for square 275 setup as well.... I think I will go 10mm spacers in front as well. Its just too close...

On springs, would you go 8/6 or 10/8 or 12/10? I am thinking sticking with 10/8's... 12/10 probably just over kill....

How are you doing in Nissan Challenge this season!

Hey slider! that's good news!

On the springs, I would definitely go softer. I'm currently 8/6 with front splitter and rear wing (total weight 2800 w/ me in it). I think that might be a good baseline for you. I personally like soft setup ,but if you are running slicks, harder springs are definitely way to go.

I haven't done much nissan challenge this year. I just did one @ streets of willow. I'll be doing Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle this Thursday-Friday!

Hope to hear back from you on your updates!

Hey Slider,

Nissan Challenge is very supportive and is truly friendly atmosphere! You should come out to drive with us.

Speaking of video, I 'll leave it here on the bottom.

To recap Global Time Attack :

Day 1. Car was running strong and during practice I ran 1:54.5x. This was my first time driving butttonwillow with this car so I thought to myself 'I have few seconds to reduce'
After noon, car starting smoking from the engine bay. I was chasing the problem.
Day 2. I found out that it was actually from the high pressure power steering hose benjo fitting which had a hairline crack. it would squirt oil right on to the header every time I turned the steering wheel.
I decided to pack up and hope for more solid run next time.
