Benny Obscene's S13 (previously) KA-T (now) LS Drift Jawn

Hi! I'm new to Zilvia and Nissans in general, but absolutely love build threads. With this car I'm scratching a ten year itch to learn and enjoy drifting. I'm also experimenting with video production so many of my updates will be via short youtube episodes. I'd love your feedback on those - not trying to be famous, just stretching some creative muscles. Thanks for reading and watching!

So where does that leave us?

The plan:
1. Obtain a suitable chassis that hasn't been hacked to ****, wrapped around a telephone pole, or rusted away
2. Clean EVERYTHING
3. Choose, acquire, tune, and install a drivetrain
4. Hit the track
5. Crushing realization that I'm not Keiichi Tsuchiya
6. Repeat step 4 + 5

Before we get into the build itself, I posted a quick question last week about my Chevy truck that I'm hoping to tow the car with.

Two pieces of good news:

1. A stock, barely molested, nissan 240sx has been acquired

2. The next video goes live tomorrow




until then here's a sneak peak of what we're working with:















thanks!

After the treasure hunt we needed to make some room for all those parts!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GY5RqFxxoM













Observations:
1. Pretty convenient that the whole car comes apart with a 10mm
2. Pretty annoying that 50% of said 10mm fasteners snapped instantly
3. This thing is going to nickel and dime me to death


Hopefully diving into the rust repair next!

Thanks!

Ha, it is still convenient to replace them as well.

I don't personally enjoy the video format, but I'm old school.

What concerns me is that pile of ebay garbage you called parts. Put that all up for sale on ebay again (minus maybe the hubs and engine), and start over by buying yourself some quality coilovers, tension rods, and solid subframe bushings.

You'll thank me later.

Do you mean videos instead of pictures and text? Or is it the video content you're not enjoying?

With regards to the parts, I think you're 100% correct. At this stage, however, I made the decision to jump on some deals with the priority of getting up and running for minimal investment.

With all of my rollover PTO pending expiration I made the difficult decision to take a staycation earlier this week. If you've been following along, that's how I've been able to crank out so many drift car vids this week. Anyway, my goal was to have the engine in the car by the end of Wednesday. [insert reality tv show drama] Things got complicated, however, when my daughter came down with a cold and double ear infections and had to stay home with me yesterday.

We finally got her to bed around 8pm last night, so already exhausted me hustled out to the garage like an idiot. Dropping a longitudinal engine by yourself fucking sucks, but around 11:30pm it was finally in and the last bolts were tightened down.



I'm getting too old for this shit.
