New Components

oct-12-winshield

Got new windshield because the old one cracked. I hope that I can get new DA stickers that I received this year from Andy L.! The Formula Drift banner will be picked up on Thursday morning.  Thank you very much for helping out with the window Chris Forsberg!

oct-12-dg5

Thank you Kevin Wells for adjusting and setting up the brand new DG-5 suspension and for the LS automotive alignment!

oct-12-transmission

A brand new transmission thanks to Pireak, Kevin Wells and Eric’s Performance Parts.

 

oct-12-pump

oct-12-rack

I tried buying a brand new Nissan powered steering pump, but it was too expensive. So, I ended up buying a rebuilt one along with rack & pinion. The steering is so much smoother and, therefore, has improved in response.

oct-12-waste-gate

New external wastegate setup on the TOMEI ARMS turbo. Kevin Wells at LS automotive engineered/fabricated an awesome and a simple way to have the wastegate coming straight out off the ARMS exhaust housing. The S13.5 sounds much more aggressive! Time to hit the dyno at APEXi!

oct-12-fan

Mike drove down from Sonoma and stopped by Daily Udon & Sushi. Thanks Mike! It was great seeing you again! See you at Formula Drift’s final round! I appreciate your support!

oct-12-brake-before

Chris Forsberg noticed that the front Ti wheels didn’t spin freely while the front was jacked into the air. The front brakes needed work to free the friction created between the pads & rotor when the brakes were not in use.

oct-12-brake-in-pieces

There is no limit when it comes to Kevin Wells! He is very passionate about what he does! Kevin can rebuild anything, engineer any part you dream of, and make race-proven parts! Thanks to him, the brakes are working properly, which  allow the front Ti7 wheels to spin freely!

oct-12-brake-new2

Looks brand new!

oct-12-c16

The car will be running on the C16 compared to the 100 octane at the finale at Toyota Speedway (Irwindale) ! See you all there! I’ll keep you updated on www.twitter.com/joonmaeng

Thank you very much for your ongoing support!

    Hey, thanks Ed! Next year will be even better. The car is dialed in thanks to Kevin Wells and the only thing needed is a good budget, practice, more H.P. etc. Thank you very much for your words of encouragement!
