150 on that frame would be a fun little daily. Just to ask,. what color in the respray?

 

I was just planning to respray the stock "Space Grey" metallic. I want it to be a budget job, and this way I don't have to dig into the bay, trunk, or door jams.

lot of potential.

 

The end goal for this car is a respray and enough bolt ons from JWtech to get about 150whp. I'd be a happy camper with that.

We going to back to talking about cars now? 

 

Yeah?

 

Sweet.

After blowing out 5th gear (surprise, surprise) and having a battle with an East Coast shop and their invisible replacement trans, the Sentra is back on the road and on daily duty thanks to some nifty Nissan bits from Japan. The trans fix came with a new Jim Wolf clutch and an 11lb flywheel (8 pounds lighter than the stock one). Feels like a different car. 

 

 

Searching through my photo dumps for the photos I took of the coilover install on this car. They're TDMi coils, and thus far I'm pretty happy with them. I think they're a little on the rough side for street use (like I get to talk, lol, my wagon is stiffer than a teenager in a strip club). 

Found out from the proprietor that the springs are roughly 430lbs/in and 240lbs/in. Instinctively this feels a little stiff, so I may look for some slightly softer springs, knock each down about 15% in rating. But man, the car looks so much better low, and it still handles like it's on rails. Running up and down some SLOcal canyons I ended up chasing, passing, and completely dropping some kids in a tricked out Cooper S. 

Call it driving experience or bigger cohones if you want, but that's not bad for a normally aspirated 2 liter in a two-and-half-decade-old chassis.

Also picked up some 15x7 Kosei K1 Racing wheels for cheap (seriously, cheaper than Rotas) and got a deal on some new Continental Extremecontact Sport tires (205/50s). They're a touch higher treadwear than the Yoko S Drives, but my butt G-force gauge tells me they grip better. 

 

Now that this car is back in action I'll be able to get back to work on the wagon... 44 Mikunis, dual brake masters, and larger fueling system inbound on that car (stay tuned). 

In the meantime, Serenity will take over the fun car duties -- including some time at the autocross! That will be the real test of this little thing. 

Next up is a pop charger from Jim Wolf... fix that mid-range throttle lag.

Been a while since I've thrown an update on here. There are a few things to address later when I have a chance to work through the photos, but for now...

The mk2s suit that car well!

 

Agreed. I think it was right call style-wise.

Who here is going to drive their Wagons to the 2018 Mitty the end of April at Road Atlanta?

 

Won't have my wagon, but I'll be there!

Still working on editing. I also had some camera issues which led to shit photos, so about half my photos didn't come out.
