Form > Function S30

My build thread got kicked off HybridZ, so lets give it a shot here!

 

Basically, bought this bone stock, well kept '78 S30 about four years ago and have done nothing but destroy it ever since.

 

Pic when I first got it:

Threw some XXR's on it, looked horrible at stock height, but I had no clue what stance was back then so I didn't care. Lug nuts stripped after pulling wheels off and putting em back on a few times, wheel fell off driving down road, dented fender.

I was stupid.

 

Got a new fender, started an L28 NA-T build.

Drove it for a few years, blew it up, and just swapped a stock L28 back in it.

 

Plans were to drift it for a while, so I threw this Sparco in it:

Then I got a Miata to drift instead, converted the interior to black, and did an S13 dash swap:

Put it back to a stock dash, got some DC2 coils, and slammed it.

 

Soooo... this is where it's at now. Slammed and very sunken.

There'll be lots more updates! Plans are for 15x10's, ZG flares, exhaust, misc. bits and pieces. Stuff. You know.

^This. If it doesn't have a 350 shoved in it or its not three feet off the ground, they don't tolerate it over there.

 

>plans where to drift it

 

Using a car for function and calling it form

 

>got a miata instead

Realized that his form doesn't function

 

No hate, but I can see why those guys got butthurt

^ good point.

 

Except I planned on drifting it BEFORE I slammed it, and after I got the Miata, I went all out on the slammed daily thing. So I never really planned on drifting it slammed. I understand proper suspension geometry and stuff, they just couldn't get it through their thick skulls that I didn't really CARE about the suspension geometry of my daily.

There are a lot of guy's from Hybridz on here. There is a lot of reasons why they don't accept stance type build threads over there, mostly because a lot of them are track guy's that care about their suspension and also know the danger of running a car too low, not only to you but to others on the road.

 

Anyways, you need to get some fat wheels and trash the turbines. biggrin.gif

^ definitely. I was actually referred here to a guy on HybridZ. I understand their mentality, I just think it's kinda jacked up that the majority of them won't accept anything BUT their idea of performance.

 

And I'm probably going to keep the turbines around, just in case. I'm slowly learning not to get rid of wheels.

Wow that is pretty low ! Keeping tabs on your updates !!! :cool: It's your car man ! With the right wheels that could look really slick !!! Any other pics of what you did to it ?

 

I'm a hybrid z member for a while now ... They don't take shit over there lol ... I just browse and use for techinical specs and brainstorming

 

They do accept a variety of engine swaps ... Not just sbc .... 2jz ... Skyline ... Ls1...

Etc :)

IMO function > form. form follows function.

if I just want to build/look at a car that dosent drive Ill spend $10 on a model.

 

Looks good tho :cool: just not my personal build style.
