New T28 GodSpeed Turbo’s, Intercoolers, Megan test pipes and down pipes were installed last week at SpecialtyZ. Seb and Greg were awesome at getting it done so fast!

Upcoming events!

more events happening this month include; Coronado Speed Fest on the 25th and 26th, Irwindale Drift on the 24th, and next month October 2nd Extreme AutoFest in Phoenix!

Paint Job nearly finished and a drift event at Firebird 7/10/10

Saturday morning timeline;

10:30-we get to the shop, paint is finished on the car, just another layer of clear coat to go.

12:00-the z is out in the sun drying (it was about 110 degrees outside)

12:30-the wheels get painted the hot pink color then laid out to dry.

3:00-tires get mounted on newly painted wheels

4:00-stickers get put on car

5:00-leave for the track

Needless to say it was an extremely busy day.

After doing this event the next modification to the car will definitely be an ‘angle kit’. I’d suggest this to anyone with a twin turbo Z to help control it when the boost kicks in.

More pictures to come of the event…

Tomorrow! AzDrift. Firebird Raceway!

It’s event time again! Driving from San Diego to Phoenix…and officially moving! Unfortunately… there were some ‘car issues’ around Yuma and I am staying at a hotel for the evening in-thanks to highway patrol for giving me a ride from the freeway!! 😉

Drifting starts in the evening-so we should have enough time to get everything together! Thanks to Drag Wheels for everything and I cant wait to show off the wheels tomorrow!!

How to shred a Michelin…no force necessary

Drifting at Extreme AutoFest

 

Waking up Sunday morning I was still teetering on whether or not to drive at Extreme Auto Fest. When getting to Qualcomm Stadium, I decided to do the practice runs and see how the car felt again…Better than I thought, so I decided to do the rest of the event. My tires had about 6/32 of tread left on them in the morning, by the las run of the day they ended up like this…still holding air!
