Since getting my S13 back on the road I was starting to discover the biggest pitfall of having a 3″ exhaust system over the 2.25″ system that I used to run: ground clearance. I point blank refused to raise the car on a permanent basis, so I needed a slight bit of remedial work to the rear of the system in order to make scraping an every now and then occurrence, as opposed to it being an almost constant problem. I went to see Craig at Top Gear Stockport, not only because he’s based just a few miles down the road but because his welding skills are second to none.
Despite my best intentions, I can’t see me finishing my video (which contains all of my footage from last year) any time soon. In the meantime though, I thought I’d throw together the section that most people were waiting for – enjoy.
I was having a sort through my hard drive this afternoon and came across this picture of Struggle’s S14 (commonly nicknamed the “Purple Twat”) that I never got round to editing after the brief ‘shoot I did with the car when it was fresh from its winter 2012 makeover. As you probably know the car has since met its demise and an S13 is in the works to replace it…
Stay tuned for some new street footage in the coming days/weeks. Screen grabs below.
