The whole week was about the knuckle.. The driftneyland grease monkeys got together and worked with the hydraulic band saw, drills, grinders, lathe and milling machines. After nearly 8 hours of labour (including a Sunday).. we raped the knuckle and lower arm of his 180sx just to find out that we got nearly 45 degrees of steering angle.. WTF.. that could be achieved by just adding a ring over the steering rack end.. Haha! So I suggested we throw them aside and get a ciggie break.. I knew the answer was in that Philip Morris packet all along.. A couple of I-TOLD-YOU-SOs and we went back to work..
The project was back on the drawing board and there was the birth of our generation two design.. Hopefully its gonna get us around 52 to 55 degrees of steering angle and 20mm bump steer correction with the oem tie rod ends..
okay.. now, the funny part at work..
During the dinner break, we dropped by a near by food place to grab some indian food and had a drink and they were showing the North Korea vs Portugal group stage match on a projector screen. While I was busy munching on my food, I heard the crowd cheering for a goal but JOE raised his hand with disappointment and yelled "OFFSET LAHHH!!!" Which in actual fact, the lines man raised his flag for an OFFSIDE..! HAHAHAHAHA!!! It was fkin hilarious.. I wonder if I'll meet another friend who is so obsessed with his wheel fitments..
With the World Cup going on, the knuckle is doing pretty slowly.. :p
After months of discussion and putting the design to paper, and a whole week at the milling machine, fitting in and out of the knuckle, testing and understanding more and more about the magic of the Ackermann Theory, I proudly present you, GOD ANGLE + BUMP STEER CORRECTION.. THE DRIFTNEYLAND SUPER KNUCKLE!!!!!
ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!! OMG.. ECSTATIC!!! Remember when they said something about a Nissan eating a Porche for breakfast? GT something? sounds something like GTR? Now, Driftneyland proudly present you, the ONE AND ONLY, GTR R32, that is faster than a Porche, even sideways. LIVING UP THE "ONLY IN MALAYSIA" spirit.
Our dear friend, preferred to be known as Mr N.I.S.M.O (Now I Sponsor Myself Only)'s HOME MADE (YES, HOME MADE) VH45DE, 4.5 Litre V8 POWERED NISSAN SKYLINE R32.
The MIKE CUSTOM RAT BONNET suggest that there is a MONSTER caged inside the engine bay. Welcome to the Porche eater's club.
A couple of years ago, when I just got home to settle down in Malaysia, I noticed drifting had been growing rapidly in the south.. Thanks to the kind organizers of the events and they are always willing to teach new drivers.. This video should reminded me about Nusajaya track..
Valuable Lesson: we should all remember that, drifting is for fun, keep it fun.. :D
BY FAR, THE BEST DRIFT VIDEO FROM MALAYSIA.. WOOP! HAHA! THE SUNBURN WAS WITH IT!!! ;) Man, this guy really know his way around the cameras and all..
If you missed the event, please please please do not miss the next one.. because you just missed Tengku Djan's new car, Federation D's new line ups, short term retirement come backs, wall scrapping, adrenaline pumping, rubber burning, waste gate screaming actions. DRIFT > SUPER GT.

the N-S-seX. replacement, Honda HSV.
Remember that year when you go WOW over this safety car? now its two octaves down..
WOW.. who said that the chasing car cannot have more angle than the lead car?? imagine koguchi is looking at his opponent across his shoulder.. back in the days where we were messing around in extreme park, who would have thought this could happen without spinning out?
Our drift scene was once invaded by a HellaFlush monster, MadMike's Madbull. This weekend, the crowd is then stunned by this unbelievable piece of fibrework, Daniel Woolhouse's (Fanga Dan) Commodore. CHECK OUT THOSE DISH SOMEBODY. By the way, more detailed pictures and videos featuring the car will be coming up soon. RB30 in the house!!!!!!! Dan had a showdown with ah fai (2jz 180sx) the battle of the 3 litres was simply Armageddon..
This weekend, UNBELIEVABLE.
Fact of day, think with your balls when you are drifting.
SADDDDDDDDDDDDDD........... I feel so sorry for u lijet.. well.. at least.. look on the bright side.. it got hit by a AE86.. If it was ever to be hit by a car.. I'm sure you would have dreamt of it to be a 86 rite?
can't believe this video has been on for 2 years and I've not seen it yet.. sorry to bring up the old news but this is just OH MY WORD.. I'm speechless.. the car.. is FLUSHED as well! and they say pornography is addictive..
SIIIIIIIIIIIICK.. YAMAHA ROCK THE HOUSE!!!!! absolutely mental.. can't believe this is actually true.. we should do the resonance test on one of the rotaries some day.. lol for all you know.. it might work..
I'm not exactly a fan of shuffling and that kinda music (yeah you catch my drift) but.. I think I'm still sane enough to tell that thats a FAILURE SHOWDOWN.. HAHAHA! Maybe Bryan did it just to entertain the crowd but obviously he doesn't know what he's doing and this might bury his already ended music career.. hahaha! Well.. might as well do a fluke and make it back into the scene.. LOL.. Well.. he deserves a round of applause for his courage to actually get up the stage to put up a show since that Twiggie chap didn't really perform.. :p
P.S. to ya'll little girls who still think that Westlife was cool.. I'm sorry I wrecked your dream.. HAHAHA!
