Tested on the new snow tires I just got. 3 weeks into owning this car now, first RWD car I've owned, and first snow fall here in BC (at least where I live) Epic Fun.





Just took these 10 minutes ago. Sorry about the cell phone quality.

Yesterday I catalogued all "improvement" expenditures on my SC since buying it for my insurance company. I didn't include regular wear items like brakes, clutch, fluid changes or maintenance like a timing belt or water pump but I did include cosmetic replacement parts in addition to upgrades. The figure I came up with was staggering.

Yeah, next time perhaps I will just finance a small amount on top of cash for a car that is already pretty close to what I want without any modification needed. Don't get me wrong, I love the car but boy was that an eye opener.

Yup haha. I got some nexens, they have pictures of snow flakes and skiiers on the side walls, so they must be good, right?

But they actually held up well. I went up some hills that were completely covered with fresh snow and laughed at the trucks going up nearly sideways from spinning out so much.

so my disappointing day went something like this, after breaking the door handle rod and trying to weld it back together(didnt work , too hott) so i went to a junk yard today that had 2 sc's...first one i spot i removed the door actuator...went to the second cause i noticed it had the 400 lip but it was damaged so i went ahead and grabbed to interior parts(driver side door trim with NO cracks in it and the rear window trim)...well i leave (45min drive) get home..pull the old actuator and get the "new" one ready...realizing the rod looks brittle on it as well sadly...but hopeful that it might still work and just looked weak......start installing get it almost situated....snap...rod broke... super disappointed and going back tomorrow to get the other one

^It seems like its always the driver's side that always gets water in it. My car and other friends with SC's have the same problem after some rain driving.

That looks really good boostin. I did my cornering lights today, but ran out of time to get any decent pics. I think I'll be doing the high beams on monday since I'm off.

today i wired up a Honda Civic 4 wire o2 sensor to my custom downpipe. since the 2 bolt flanged 3 wire o2 sensor wouldn't work anymore on my 1jz. i needed something longer.

wasn't too hard to figure out how to hook it up. but now my car doesn't idle pig rich anymore.

Picked up lower door extensions from Craigslist.
Also got a SC400 3.9 diff for 60 bucks.

I'm also going to tap the temp sensor hole larger in my 1jz water neck and use the 2jzge water sensor. The waste of time 330ohm resistor fix is total Gahbidge.
