The Road To Competition In My S14a (kouki) Drift Car

Hey everyone, so I have build threads on 2 UK websites but want to carry on updating here as well, here's the links to those if you want a more in depth background but I will summarise now:

So bought my car about 8 years ago and it looked like this:

At this point it was my daily driver and still fairly original other than alloys, coilovers, air kit and exhaust upgrades. Really enjoyed driving it on the road and just doing the odd drift day here and there with just basic mods like welded diff and aftermarket knuckles etc:

Then a little while later I decided to fit a cage, fully poly bush the rear end and went to a top mount turbo with external gate and also decided I wanted to try and compete, obviously lots of other little bits happened in between but this is a rough summary lol.

Car took lots of knocks and bangs along the way, heres my first top 32 battle, I was on crap tyres btw:

Then I done another year or so of comps but only filmed a little. It has pretty much been a trailer queen since COVID as I only managed 2 drift days last year, here's a link to a practice day where I got a bit over excited chasing people...

Before that video the car looked like this:

I obviously had some repairs to do from that last drift day so can update you from there but that's a fairly quick run down....Happy to go into more details of anything about the car or if anyone has any specific questions about my set up etc.

Let me know what ya think,

Cheers Dan
