Taking your car drifting is inevitably going to result in some sort of wear and tear being caused, although sometimes a lot more serious damage can be caused. Unfortunately for my friend Jonny this is exactly what happened as his beloved S13 ended up parked in Buxton’s “Ring of Steel”. Not one to give up, Jonny decided to look on the bright side and build an even better S13.
An automatic CA18DET powered ’13 was sourced for a three figure sum and transported back to Jonny’s driveway ready for a heart transplant – the CA and auto ‘box were to be replaced with the much more flexible SR20DET manual setup from his crashed car.
As I visited Jonny’s house the other day I found him and a few of my other friends hard at work getting the conversion done, ignoring the rain and wind in the hope of getting the job done as soon as possible.
Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me so I had to make do with some Instagram photos from my phone. Don’t worry though, as more progress is made I’ll be taking some proper photos as usual!
