Had some panels laying around though not the prettiest, they are stepping stone for paint.

I even got to test the Work Meisters in the rear but unfortunately I blew my radiator...

And even when i got the radiator temporarily sealed the throttle linkage on carb 4 broke. it was overall a shitty test run but thats what it was for to see what I needed done before Dec 20-21. After this event though the Z will taking a break for a while due to changing priorities in my life for a better living situation. Dont worry I'm not selling it, its just going to be sitting in a storage or just something to drive on the weekends.

Winter Jam happened. The first day was fine with no problems...until mid day the carbs started doing whatever it wanted. I wasn't even able to compete in the team tandem competition that I hoped for. If i ran a return, it didnt have enough fuel psi to keep the floats full, even regulator didn't change anything. When I would run no return or fpr it would simply over fuel the 3rd carb and flood the chambers.. I forced the car to compete for singles competition but the sputtering and having no light throttle at all sucked since if I wouldnt stay full throttle the chambers would flood.

The next d was the singles comp which I didnt qualify and the car was just not having it all together, not to mention no hydro ebrake for a high speed entry. After the competition I headed over to the "Sonoma Sportsland" aka Meihan Sportsland Replica course and the car decided to come back full force..... but during one of my runs I initiated at one wall and transferred over to get close to the outer wall....

 At first I thought my wheels into the wall and it was a done deal. The thoughts of its tottaled for a slit second dissappeared after i realized the car was still drifting :)   ... Turns out I just clipped the wall just right and carried on out. I was scared at firs fretting that the car was done in. I was all smiles after getting out the car and seeing it myself. Driving out getting all the high fives, people screaming about the wall tap as I came off track and random folks appreciating the car, it felt pretty good. The quarter is cosmetic the rear flooring is wavy but nothing important was damaged and i drove home just fine..other than running out of fuel.

After the event I was slightly considering changing power plants. That decision is now final.

I have put everything motor wise up for sale mikunis, motor, trans, among other things to fund an RB20. Possibly picked up a sponsor for my wiring harness for the motor after the short announcement!! I could have fixed the problem with probably replacing the needles, 7-10 psi fuel pump with a regulator on it but I just want to try something new. I do miss the boosted life alittle so maybe thats it.

So thats that for now. The car will be taking a turn for the better with straight panels, over fenders, full set of meisters, paint/vinyl and a new power plant. Thing is I dont plan on drifting for awhile since I'm going back to school this January. Until the next update Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Have no idea what happen to the links but there will be an update soon. My daily got stolen with all my belongings including my photography equipment so the Z will be taking longer than originally expected. Though I got my car back , now I have to replace close to 3k in equipment. I already replaced my camera and laptop so the Z will get attention sometime the end of the month or next. Until then!
