I need grippy tires. Last night on the way home I tried launching from a stop through an intersection. Held it at around 3800rpm and when it whent green light I whent for it. Well my tires instantly broke loose in a very aggressive manner, in fact I whent no where for a second, they just spun on the spot.....then as I started moving they spun all the way through the intersection. This was with letting off the gas a little bit and trying to feather it a bit. There was no traction at all....was pretty pathetic actually. Probably looked pretty bad ass though if there had been anyone to see it. Oh well. Its raining a bit today...hopefully it will rain tonight.....*cough* drift session *cough*

I think some of Justin's stock ground fell off...that's why there was a noticible improvement. However, extra grounds get rid of a 3800RPM stumble found on most FC's don't they?

Yeah I am thinking my old ones fell off, or one of them at least. Cause it was fine for a while and then it started getting bad. But I think they were also partially wrecked for a long time cause that problem I had with my tach not working when cold out or cold engine has been going on since winter. The new engine grounds fixed that completely. Since I put them on the tach has worked every start up no matter where or when or what the conditions are. I'm gonna see about getting my stock grounds fixed eventually, and also add maybe 1 more somewhere. That should help it out good I hope.

1 week and 4 days until I order the header....finally. Damn I cannot wait to get it in there.

Lets pray for more rain guys.....slidin those corners yesterday was fun as hell when it was raining.

I have not watched all of this video yet....but it looks sweet. They put an FD, Skyline, Silvia, and Supra all against each other in a test for the best Japan super car. Although they are not all insanly tuned I don't think...the FD doesn't have much done to it (HP wise that is)...anyways....you'll see.

EDIT:
Just watched it. Too bad the FD only has 320HP and the other cars are all around 500-600HP. On the 1st lap the FD kills them all until the straight stretch and then they all pass him and start pulling away for the next couple laps. But in the end he gets 2nd, Supra gets 1st.....you'll see how......

I especially liked the move that we all know Tyler is preping his car for. The guy in the supra cannot get past the Skyline so what does he do? He turns on his "ultra bright HID headlights" and trys to blind the guy in front of him. hehe...

FC's are lacking grounds so when you add a extra one or two you'll notice a significant improvement.I hate the 3800rpm shit they were plagued with stock

Anyone else feel a surge of pride as that weak FD held off three horsepower demons in the corners?

Hey Timpo, what does Timpo mean. I heard rumour that it was a pretty awesome word. So I asked this Japanese girl at dinner the other night...she wasn't sure on my pronounciation...but the best I could get out of her was "Penis" but I think it's better than that. She was just too embarassed to say it. So what's the deal?

Hahahahahaha

yeah one of my friend speaks Japanese. He is an American but he used to live in Japan so he thought exact same thing too.
Anyways, Timpo is my friend's dad's nickname. His name is Tim, but he gave dad a nickname called Timpo.

And as for penis, Timpo is pretty close. In Japanese, we call Chinpo(or Chinpoko) as penis. pretty close but not quite. I didn't even noticed when I put my user name.

These fog lights are PISSING ME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alrighty.....got so frustrated with these fog lights today. They are just teasing me now.

I removed the entire system, all the wires and the lights and all of it. Had it all on the ground just sittin there. So I attach all the wires and all of that shit. Put the power on the + battery terminal, attach the ground wire to a good ground on the car. Put in a 25 amp fuse in the fuse spot. Turn em on and BAM! THEY LIGHT UP!!!!!!! I think "Fuckin sweet got em working!" So I install the lights and move the switch to inside the cabin. Did not change anything. Used the same ground point, obviously the same + battery terminal. Its all installed and good to go.....flick the switch and BAM! THE FUSE BLOWS! So I try again....and again....and again......whent through 5 fuses trying to figure it out. I checked and rechecked everything....all the connections are good and strong. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG!?!?!?!?!?! Why do they work when just sittin on the grass, but I bolt em to the car and just keeps blowing the fuse. What a pain in the ass! Bastard lights hate me! anyways.....theres my rant.

Feel free to comment on things to try to get them to work.

-Justin

PS. For those who don't know, I have had these lights on my car for a while and have not been able to get them working. So getting them to light up when on the ground surprised me and thats why I thought I had fixed them and was happy.

If your blowing fuses its shorting or using more current than the fuse can handle.Make sure your + wire is grounding anywhere.Then see how much current they draw and get a fuse 5 amps bigger than the current draw.

I've checked all the wires. The power wire isn't grounding anywhere at all. I carefully inspected all of the wire and any spot that looked like it had gotten even slightly bare I taped it up with electrical tape. The 25 amp fuse should work....it worked in Tylers car. Thats who I got these lights and wires from by the way. I know they work and had them working today as I said....no idea what it could be though.

Faulty switch.Try bypassing it to see if they work without it.Takes a few minutes.

Tofino: Tasty.

On the way up from that gas station to the junction took 1 hour...15 minutes off the pace. I remember about 14 seperate passes, some with up to 3 cars and 180 km's. But we got nailed down behind 5 vans and went slow for 10-15 minutes. That hurt.


Trip. Was goign to take it easy. Fat Chance. Started out slow like last time then wound into it. Uncountable number of passes, 90% of passing lanes were put to use. Time to gas station 50 minutes. Worked the corners alot harder, but took it easy on the open road part of the last stretch. Too early for speed runs like that.

I'd say a clean run at night I could work it down to 35 pretty easy.

PS Tyler. Yuo = teH moron. I stopped, waited...then heard you drive off while I was wandering around my car waiting. Didn't think I could catch up.


PPS Actually it's becaue I had to PEE
