Jono\'s drift project..... Truckin sideways
« on: March 28, 2010, 11:24:51 AM »
Well, after going to an event the other month with a mate, we both walked away thinking, that looks fun & wouldn\'t mind having a go! so we sat down for an hour & ran through a few potential cars we could abuse, but we wanted to be different & not use the usual suspects like the silvias, bmw\'s & volvos!

Mk 1 starlet: too expensive
Mitsi starion: too expensive
morris marina: to gayyyy
moggy minor: can\'t murder one of them!
Subaru justy with front props removed & diff welded!

then I thought about the skip! basicaly it\'s a pick up my sis bought cheep to cart the building rubble in to the woods from the development they have been doing over the last 12 months! so yesterday we got it running & got the box sorted! anyway, here she is at the moment:

slight update!
We have been buisy at it in the evenings! Diff is now welded, interior thrown out & bucket put in, all painted bar tailgate, induction kit, cosmetic stickers, engine serviced, new brake lines bipassing the rear load sensor valve so we now have very excited rear stoppers! LOL. anyway, here is how she looks now:

interior striped:


seat in:


Induction sorted:


Warning sticker:


cosmeticaly all done:



All we have to do now is drop the front end, sort the exhaust, evict our miss fire and pad the seat, then it\'s skid time! LOL

What you recon guys?

she will probably drop about 2", but it will still look the same as we are going to be running 185/55/15\'s on her instead of the 225/70/15 that are on her now! LOL

Well, we had our first event today & it didn\'t go very well :(
Truck has awesome potential for the drifting as it is very progressive, but the thing is, after our first run (4 laps) our fuel pump packed up :( basicaly there was rust in the tank that clogged the fuel pump & filter, we searched everywhere for a pump but ran when they gave us a price of £120! we decided to clean ours & snapped the terminals off it :( then we got lent a pump with no fittings! 2 hrs later we had fittings, only to find that the pump was for carb & not injection :( so we put it on the trailer & called it a day at 3:30pm after about 5 hrs faffing trying to get a pump to work!

Anyway, here is a pic before we loaded it on to the trailer to go tot the event:

Well, we had another go..... the morning was a desaster! the welded diff broke free so we ended up with a std diff again :( so we took it off the track as one of the guys had a welder with all the trimmings, but unfortunatly we didn\'t have any power!!! but eventualy the track owners son turned up & took us to the track workshop at 1:30pm. the end result, 2pm diff was welded & we were back in the game :) got there & there were 3 roll overs while we were gone, one guy was about to go to the medical center & another lad stuffed his car in to a bank making it a possible right off!! which ment the truck was out on the track for a solid hour and a half giving the crowd something to cheer at:



Unfortunatly the welder we used on the diff was a little small so it didn\'t hold out long and we had to put it back on the trailer, but we proved all the doubters wrong & we now know she skids! but we need a new clutch as this one is nakerd and then weld up the diff again so it resembles a molten lump of steel!

Awesome :god
At the end of the day, it\'s meant to be fun - not a political movement! :burnout
