Car was built of the intentions to be different to all the Jap cars in the drifting scene and to rustle some feathers. All built at home in the shed with a few mates. Car was going great handled fairly well need to make a few changes. I was at the last 2 Drift Matsuri at QLD Raceway but will miss this one in march hoping to make it for the October one. Motor finally let go at the last Friday night drifts I went to. It started to knock pretty badly at OCT Matsuri so called it for the weekend. Did a oil change some thicker oil. Did the rear mount rad setup and took it out for 1 last go to test the cooling system and a few other things so that if it failed i'd only cook the broken motor and not the new one. Car preformed awesome and finally let go at the end. We're leaning towards a busted ring as its got zero power and is blowing smoke and bulk oil out one of the cylinders. Can't remember which tho. Surprised it lasted as long as it did for 232xxxkm's and lots of belting the piss out of it, guessing the oil cooler and regular oil changes helped. Few major things to note: -I tore my front strut towers off the body due to the car being so stiff. Thus reinforced. -The cut rear wall will be filled in as I was hoping air would flow through the cab and from under the car to cool the rad. But air ended up coming back into the cab so i'll be refilling that and running 2x fans there instead. -The tray seams are starting to tear apart as well due to stiff springs and tubed underneath. Will be stitch welding this before my next outing. - Coolant Temps wouldn't surpass 100degrees during a run and would drop back down to 70 before I got to start my second run. Oil temps wouldn't surpass 90ish and would drop down to 80ish. LS's prefer to run warm so i'm looking towards running multiple switches for my fans so I can stage them or even look at putting in a controller to do it automatically. P.s. I Do run the wing when i'm out drifting, just the below photo was the last Friday I went to and at matsuri I backed the car into a wall and bent all my mounts and hadn't built new ones yet.
