    Default Well, it's low enough to start a thread...(1991 240sx)




    Hey everyone and welcome! This is my sports car and a few pictures telling you about it.


    Not really shooting after the whole "stance life" but owning a S-Chassis, kinda impossible not to. I'm just a 22 year old trying to build a car to have some fun. lol. Hope some of you like it and here is it!

    Located in Paw Paw, Michigan.
    Whalen's Speed R&D


    LOLZ! A few transitional photos. To crappiest, crappy and then "decent".












    Thennnn... the build started. Parted out my DSM to build this. Thinking that it may at one point do something for me.






















































    Suspension upppgrades, got the Drift Work knuckles from Odi @ FEAL suspension. gotta deal on dem!!! lols












    LM7 - 5.3L




























    Canton pan is no good for someone that drives on Michigan roads and is rather low.




    Sold the Canton and bought a Sikky pan! Should have done that the first time!





    Z33 Transmission - Collins Adapter plate














    Its alright!











    Rocket Bunny 30mm front fenders














    Evo 8 front brake set up front, using Touge Factory Evo caliper adapter brackets. - Work amazing btw.











    Order these, after 4-5 months waiting. Cosmis XT-006r 18x9.5 front and 18x11's rear.








    Oirgin 50mm rear over fenders



















    Working on my coolant system right now. Should be done soon.

    Yeahh I do. I didn't got to it this year, the car wasn't done. I was there with my DSM two years ago... lol

    Going in the direction of a track car, but not going to stop me hitting up all of the car meets.

    Thanks, little too aggressive for me haha. I just extended the lower controls arms a little more than I planned. Hope the fenders last me.

    Please don't add the typical (read: hideous) S13 skirts and bumpers you see on most drifter s13's out there?

    No, I'm the same. Simpler the better, imo. I wouldn't mind a legit kit one day. But, making it one color is a priority after this is one the road.

    A lot of front camber - note that my entire front suspension is out of line. But still haha...... :/





    We get our own brake booster delete plates made, designed for the Evo's but they also work for the s-chassis!
