  • Yeah but, 4 doors = more places to put blow-up sex dolls.
    I would definitely be keen on taking the DET out and chucking a 25DE in. Keep the 20DET since he's rebuilt it and all. By the time I get the costs for that, and towing (it's in S.A), it'll easily add up to about $7,500 - $8,000.

    • Yeah, probably best to get something closer to home. Mine is only 2-3 hours away, 1 hour from where I used to live. You'll find something eventually man. Mine won't have an engine for a while, KB needs more manual, Villain needs a new box and a wiring fix, his brother's car needs rego, then you'll swoop in with something perfect.

      EDIT: Crap, just realised that makes 3 180's for our drift "team" >_< And none of them look anything alike!

      • Your shell had a bit of an... interesting rear quarter panel, yeah?
        Just stumbled across this if you're keen.

        • Ahem, my wiring's actually a lot better. I cleaned it all up while i was dismantling things.
          Now the idle control's playing up a bit. But it gets me around, so like i give a f/ck

              • Ah, no shit.
                My mistake. I should probably learn to actually read some things rather than stare at the pics for a bit.

                • Its all good Hopefully I can get it back to that stage or better eventually. Definitely need to fix the rear guards though, as Villain said they look a little rough underneath. So much potential, so little cash to buy things! Glad i'm working extra hours for the next month or two.

                  • Should be an exciting build Rosey. I'm looking forward to it a lot. It sounds like you got yourself a bit of a catch with that shell.
                    And yeah, if the majorty of my car works, which for me is like 2/5 of the car, it's good enough to drive as long as it's safe. However, if 4/5ths of the car works but it feels unsafe, i won't drive it.

                    • Yeah lucky dude.
                      I'm working until... the 16th I think, possibly a bit later. Should give me plenty of money for a good purchase over the Christmas break.

                      That's pretty odd, Villain.
                      How often has the Sil felt unsafe?

                      • I also need new tires. Mine are old and hard and dangerous in the wet! Did a fully hectic drift around a round about unintentionally today. Shit was scary

                        Also got some understeer around another round about, I think the tires were skipping across the road and vibrated the car, Did not sound good.

                        • Not too often, actually. I can't remember the last time it felt unsafe. It's beginning to now, though. The rear shock springs are squeaky as all hell and i dont like it when my car squeaks from places it shouldn't.
                          Need some coilovers.

                            LoL When I got new rear tyres for mine I reversed out of the driveway for a test drive then went to 1st gear and "REEEEIIIIIIIIGGGGH" tyres spun up, whoooops... unintentional.

                            Have unintentionally lost traction many times around town now... Although I havent driven in the rain since putting a rear swaybar in, id imagine it would probably be worse now.

                              Haha yay for unintentional wheel spin!

                              So you put in a rear sway bar too eh? Feel any noticeable difference? I hardly drove mine before I plopped in a rear sway bar so I couldn't really tell.

                              • Picking the 180 up December 1st, if he doesn't sell it on me in the meantime. Pumped to finally have a project, and something to do with my boring, boring life.
