  1. I'm insanely jealous. For Christmas my Z caught fire. :'( Congrats on the pick up bud, definitely looks like a great car. I'd say that you need to just drive it for a bit and then figure out your goals. The possibilities are definitely endless when it comes to modifying z cars, so all that's left is your money and decisions.
  2. Wow, it actually snowed in Houston?! It didn't even snow here in Ft. Worth and we generally get snow once or twice a year. I'm kind of shocked here..
  3. I would say that if you wanted to make this a truly successful idea you would need to also include other cars. Honda and Toyota fans generally pay a nice chunk of money just for "JDM street cred," which means that they would be more likely to utilize your services more often than Z fans. All in all it sounds like a good idea, I just wonder if the premium you would be forced to charge would be worth it in the long run.
  4. Are you talking about the meet out off of 20 in Arlington at the pizza joint? If so I've only been out there once, but I figured that I wouldn't head back out there until I had made more progress on my car. It might be silly, but when I got out there and saw how great some of the cars looked I felt kind of left out, lol. My main thing now is I know that I need to replace my rack & pinion, but after that I don't know what to do. There are a ton of things that needs to be done, I just don't know exactly what to do first. I guess I'll figure it all out here in a bit though.
  5. Thanks bud. I wish I could've had the chance to get that shot a bit more clear, but there was a security guard rolling up at the time and I was using an ancient point and shoot on a fence.. All those things combined equals a blurry pic that could've come out much better. As for the $1500/month, Yessir.. I'm looking forward to it for sure. The only thing is that now they're talking about moving my shift from mornings to nights, which means that I might have to spend all my free time applying for other jobs to keep the z budget up as I'm a full time student @ night..
  6. ^Absolutely wonderful. Don't mind me, I'm new to the RB idea and just trolling the RB threads to learn a bit.
  7. I know that this is a very old thread, but I have to say that this is one of the best looking z cars I've ever seen. A big cheers to you sir!
  8. Can't say it much better than that. Great looking swap/interior for sure. Jealousy does not adequately describe my emotions right now..
  9. Just started d/ding my s130 and loving it. It's such a night and day difference with my 05 civic that it's not even funny. I mean, forget about the fact that the 05 civic coupe that I have is the slowest Honda ever made, it's just a completely different feeling. I've driven modified STi's, SRT4's, stock Z4's, 335i's, 135i's, etc. and this car is just so connected to the road, it's a blast to drive. I start a new job here monday so I'm looking at a new budget of roughly $1500/month to spend on the z, and I'm looking towards starting quite a bit of work. I've loved reading through here about my different options (as I've recently started to second guess my choice to build an l28et in favor of possibly an RB25 or 1JZ). Anyways, I believe that I've posted pictures before but here's a refresher:
  10. I generally don't like "drifting," but this video just drips with pure talent. I've seen it a million times already and it still isn't old at all.
  11. Before I started drinking I basically was just trying to cope with being a worthless lump on society. I hung out with a lot of people that did drugs (and had recently quit myself), so I compensated with my recent loss of drug addiction with just picking up a new one. When I was "at my peak" my girl and I were waking up to 40's of steel reserve, drinking whatever we could come up with during the day, and finishing the night with a bottle of whiskey. I lived across the street from a couple of really good friends of mine that also drank/smoked pot so it was basically a constant party. It really hit me when I made the mistake of letting someone talk me into taking a xanex when I had been drinking tequila all night. I ended up blacking out that night and waking up the next morning with a cheap right broken on my finger and my neighbor telling me that I had gotten violent the night before and punched his dads truck as hard as I could. I was lucky that it was just a farm truck and that his dad loved me like a son, or that really could've caused a lot of problems. Since I've quit drinking I've returned to college (flunked out the first time I tried to go) and I now have a 3.6 GPA. My girl and I have been together for 6 years now and have really grown close now that we stopped partying and started just living a more respectful/mature life. I now rarely have the urge to drink at all anymore, and on the rare occasion that I do I generally only drink maybe 1 or 2 beers and I quit.. It's just not in me anymore to get shitfaced. To be fair I still am an addict though, I just keep switching my addiction to different things.. Now it's energy drinks. I honestly believe that if it weren't for Monsters I would probably have flunked out of college again just because I can't get up that early. On the other hand I've started trying to tell people to calm down on drinking just because I don't want to see someone that I care about go down the path that I went down. Within 3 months I had been in countless fights, broken my knuckle, split my head open, been arrested... Now I'm 25 and living with my parents because I knew that I had to get back on my feet and go back to college or I would lead a worthless life. I don't know man, that's my rant/contribution. Hope it helps.
  12. I am insanely jealous right now. Good job bud.
  13. As with everyone else, I'm not a fan of the lights. But everything else I think is a drastic improvement over the 350z. Baby Aston?

  15. I have to ask, what are the modifications to this srt4? Also, what year is it? 04-05 models had a slight bump in hp and were underrated from the factory, as a result they generally dyno out at around 220hp/240tq. They also don't take much money at all to get up to 300-350whp, which is why I ask what mods that it has. I hope that I'm not being the grinch of the thread or anything, but I don't want you to go on a rash spending spree without considering the actual chances of winning after modding.
