bringing this post back up from the dead. Wanted to see if my log in still worked.

Miss this car. Moved and didn't have parking to keep it so we stripped it down and turned it into a roller. The motor ran great and the dvd is out on drifting.com on the 2jz build. The motor did finally go out, lost a rod at willow springs durring the all star bash in 2012. We used an NA motor from Carlos's SC and put all the same parts back on it. DriftMotion also helped out a bunch and had the trans rebuild.

I did pick up a black on black sc400 from clublexus with a blown motor and we took all the parts out of the race car and turned it into a street car. Thanks to Animal Auto for the help! My back is not in as good of a shape as it used to be. Love the leather interior and its running again. Still needs to go out to get tuned but its a blast to take out on the streets. Has the wastegate open so it gets loud on boost. Only running it to 15psi now but hope to push it up a bit more if I can find the time and money to get it tuned again.

Sorry a lot of the pics have been lost in the thread.

Merging Threads, sorry mods please delete if need be.



Back at work again in a new location up in the california mountains. Not sure how many faces in here remember the last build http://www.clublexus.com/forums/buil...ld-thread.html but while having to move, I was not able to keep the car since simply there was not enough room to keep it. Before moving, there was a for sale thread here on CL for a sc400 with a blown motor and come to find out the car was not far from that shop. So with some friends we got over there and pushed it up on the trailer. The race car had a blown motor at this point and needed to be rebuilt. The sc400 is black on black and had really nice interior.

The plan was to take the driveline from the racecar and swap it over into the sc400 that way it would be a stock looking car but something fun to take out on the streets. Kind of a sleeper drift car. We did just that but with a blown motor in the race car, we opted to switch back to a NA block to save costs. Bought a motor from Carlos at Lexus Auto and its been running good. Here is some footage from that car at winter jam last year.

After playing around with the car for a while, the car needed something more. It was that time that the axles and diff and clutch all started wearing out after so much abuse. A few months ago decided it was time to build something new and I'm still now sure what to do with this yet but took the sc apart and started to fix things. Asked the my wife if we should cage it since the car should also be legal to run wheel to wheel and she said yeah, go for it. She has seen me build roll cages before but non in my own car and non in a lexus with its massive amounts of coatings and metal. For some reason things always take longer then expected. At first we started with taking that nice leather out of the car.

Used dry ice to get the big chunks off but still took over a day with a wire wheel cleaning the seams and cutting things out. In the end it looked like this,







Then the cage work,

The cool thing about being up here is having time to do new things and painting cars is something that would be nice to do. I always see those show cars and wonder if there is more time into fab work or shine work into some of those builds. Went to the local paint store that seems to be stacked with things needed to make a good paint job and picked up a gun with some black paint and tried to see, went home to try it out with a small crappy compressor. Well you learn lessons the hard way with no teacher around but happy that its all black currently.

Wifey has some skills too! It's good that she's taking part of the build? Is there a build for her in the future?

Her favorite car is a 240sx coupe, not sure if that's a build idea but she help with the door panels and trimmed them up so they fit with the door bars. Trying to get some of the stock parts back in there cause it just fits better. Had a big mile stone today and had the car on the scales and it came out to 3015. The goal was to stay about 3000 lbs and it feels good to be close to that.

thank you ZachTriggs!

Been spending a bunch of time on this... and would like to get off page 30 so would like to dump a bunch of stuff that just happened to get this post to the next page and hopefully have more people post on here too.

Got stuck in the middle of the smoke with a friend in front so the throttle stayed down. Came threw the cloud of smoke and saw his face which meant the worse. He was spun out and i was heading right at him sideways. Tried to move forward but he was already coming stopping. Hit him almost looking straight into his eyes as his hands are already in the air going sorry "I messed up." One hit then knowing the next one was coming. We had 3 in the group. We stop and hear the sound of an LS still on throttle with a big screach of tires. Out of the smoke a big flash of green comes into us and boom. The other side is hit too. ****...

Before that we had some time on different tracks and here is something that was fun to follow in a mess of traffic on the meihan track


The laps and time playing with the black sleeper was fun for a couple days so lets move on to page 31.
