I’ve just had a look through my previous posts and it looks like I started this thing back in December 2010. For just over four years I’ve been haphazardly wielding a couple of cameras, pointing them at cool cars and throwing together some words about them. Why do I continue to do it? I ask myself that question every time I’m sat there editing photos at 3am, scratching my eyes and wondering who on earth will even bother to read what I’m about to write about them.
I’ve just stocked up on a fresh batch of Nissan 5×1 Driveshaft Spacers which are available now through the store. Remember these are designed and manufactured here in Manchester, UK and are supplied with extremely high quality nuts and bolts. Reduce the chance of driveshaft failure on your Nissan – go lower, drive harder.
For the last four years I’ve kept this blog running with snapshots into the modified car scene that I deal with on a daily basis. While my focus may have shifted over the years, I still like to think that I’m doing this for the same reasons that I started out for.
However, I’ve decided that now is the time to shake things up a little. Yes, you can still expect to see grainy photos of drift cars in action on the streets late at night, event coverage and glimpses into life in the workshop but I will also be offering a little more.
Being around other people’s drift cars for the last few years (while also slaving over my own) has resulted in plenty of discoveries and shortcomings with various components, be they OEM or aftermarket. Some of the answers to these issues have been rather specialist, with the end result being a bespoke fix as opposed to an off-the-shelf solution. It’s my goal to make some of these solutions more easily available to users that don’t have access to specialist machinery or friends in the know.
First up is the Nissan S/R-body driveshaft spacers that you see above. I won’t bore you with the details – if you want to read more, head over to the STL! store here. These are designed for those that like to slam their Nissans and drive them to the brink of death, without breaking driveshafts along the way. Limited quantities available to begin with but more will become available very shortly.
More products will be being designed and manufactured shortly but, don’t worry if you only visit this blog to check out cool cars; the focus is still very much on idiots in shonky Nissans held together with cable ties and hopes & dreams.
