Right, well I guess I'd best start my first project thread. I havn't had a great deal of time and the car has pretty much sat idle for the last 6 months or so. The plan is to turn the car into a half decent drift car to practise in.

Can't say this project thread is gonna compete with any of the other awesome ones but here goes...

The R32 Gtst I bought off Speedfreak last year. The start.



A bit of drifting up at Knockhill.


Japspeed intercooler.






Have stripped the rear interior out. Spoiler is off and bootlid is yet to be smoothed and painted. Still lots and lots to do.

More pics to follow.....

My plan is:

1. New Exedy Metal Sports Paddle Clutch kit http://www.driftworks.com/catalog/products/exedy-metal-sports-clutch-kit.html
What do you think of this clutch ? Anyone recommend any other ?

2. Weld the diff

3 New FIA approved bucket seat, already got the harnesses

4. Either Japspeed or HSD HR Monotube Coilovers from Driftworks ? Advice ?

5. Driftworks suspension components front and rear


Can anyone else recommend what else I should do and in what order to set up for drifting ?

Cheers

If it's of any use to you, I'll have an E-Manage Ultimate for sale soon, with a loom set up for the RB20. (shameless plug).

Keep the pics coming ,cool thread.

Mods I'd recommend:

Mig or 2way diff
coilovers
Drift button for the handbrake
Bucket seat + harness
6mm spacers for the steering rack to get more lock "I have some spare".
remove hicas + fit lock out bar or better still hicas eliminator D.W
Alloy rad
oil cooler
Get rid of air con inc rad+ fan

The list goes on but they're some of the most beneficial mods.
