Sooooooo.. :)

Copying around 1 terrabyte WITOUT firewire (usb 2.0..) so I have some time to update a little :)

Im having big plans with the car. This year I'm going to try the amateur drift series with the car. Only big modification since last is a Suzuki electric servo unit. Im done with all the hard driving.. Lets hope this works :)

Pics:

My welding is starting to get "not bad" :) still needs to get painted:



Needed to do a little electric circuit cos the servo has speed sensor, engine speed sensor, etc. But its done and works perfectly:



New steering wheel, cos the Momo is in my Golf:



Also I managed to move the seat backwords with 90mm, witch should be good for weight balance:




Thats it for now.

The future:

In the winter we are planing to put a different engine in it (let me keep the engine a secret:p ) and we decided to go for an E30 BMW rear suspension. It has been done before. This is a Lada VFTS with E30 rear suspension:




So why e30? Becouse the 90% of drifters use e30 bmw-s to drift, so if anything breaks, etc, I can get some help. And it can handle quite a lot of power. And we want to get around 200-250 hp... Of course we want to make it adjustable in all ways, meaning: toe in-out, chamber, ride height.

The front suspension has to go as well. Why? I cant get more steering angle out of it, and its very hard to convert it to adjustable. What are we going to use? Well e30 suspension units, but with custom made trailing arms. Something what you can see on early e30 m3 dtm cars:



And if there will be money, we have to shave some weight as well: fiberglass doors, hood maybe ebven the roof. After so much metal cut out, and replaced with plastic, we are going to need a rollcage as well. With is not a problem, becouse we would need it anyways..

Well lets hope for the best :)

Good to hear your project is still going, your work is impressive! Makes me want to do the same.

Engine won't be BMW by any chance? ;)

Yeah.. It will be BMW and mabye MAYBE turbocharged.. :) Well it depends only on the money.. :(

Looks like I'm going on a drift practise on Jun 7. Hope I could get my friend who helps me with the filming , and my videos (Mphoto.hu) to come out and take some shots :) Looks like its going to be fun, lets hope for the best.

Here is a vid (presented by me ofcourse:p ) of the track:
Linky linky

Its going to be VERY hard to connect with my low power car, but well its a challange:p

Here is my friend rockin it out, with a lada of course:p :

It has an awsome sound.. Same engine as mine, but he has trumpets on he's dellortos.. Man I want a set of those :( BTW if I can really go with the turbo power, I'm going to miss this sound.. :(

Thats it for now, stay tuned :)
