Well I lowered my car temporary on some Espelir Active Super Down springs with the stock shocks. (I know, big no-no) They claim a 50mm drop front and rear. The spring rates are 2kg/mm front, 3kg/mm rear. Initial driving impression is that it feels very much like stock when daily driving. They are a bit stiffer in corners, but very livable for the average driver. I think this height looks like it should have come from the factory.

What do you think?


City Life

went to another ChicagoArea240sx meet last night. awesome turnout (many i didnt get pics of) and awesome drive to chicago. doing 110+ mph chasing down the yellow ITR with the jdm front (seen below). so much fun. we had all(?) of Risky Devil join us. though all their cars weren't there. no excuses

edgar of D*Squad (red s13 fastback, gt wing) had his exhaust fall off. but nothing else major with us.

Ill Garage

I headed out to the new Ill Garage yesterday. Cool place. Like Tommy said, they need a larger place to work. It is pretty much confined to a showroom where they work on the cars as well as sell stuff.

Anyway, the shop looks pretty good. Can't wait until I can order some coilovers to lower my car already.

a few pics from it:

Josh's hatch was looking good as usual

sorry for the bad quality pics. i forgot to change the ISO on the borrowed 30d


White S13 Coupe Stolen in Chicago



posted this for a friend. please help if you spot this car!



Sometime last night/early this morning(8/05/08). My good friend Trucky's S13 was stolen from outside of his house. The car was highly modified and was stolen from the southwest Chicago area. He has poured tens of thousands of dollars into his car and countless of hours of working on it.
Hes frozen his balls off, and sweated till hes dehydrated multiple times during the cars build, not to mention the hours of overtime to justify paying for the parts. He had just recently finished building it up to his standards and its unfair that some low-life ____ can just show up and take it all away before he could even enjoy it.

If you guys could keep an eye out for the car and its parts we'd really appreciate it. It has many highly distinguishable parts on it that their surely gonna try and sell.

Heres a few pics of the car.

Some of the mods include, Redtop SR motorset with all the boltons, Ebay FMIC/coldpipe, Hks SSQV with custom hotpipe, 3in downpipe, Apexi N1 exhaust, D-drug coilovers(this is one of the only set left in the midwest, you can tell them apart by the remote reservoirs and red/gray shockbody), Blue DT05R wheels 17x8.5 in the front 17x9.5 in the back.(This is also one of the only set of DT's in the midwest right now), Origin stylish side skirts, rear bumper, 30mm rear overfenders, and V:S Ver IV replica G-corp front bumper, Obviously the car also had a silvia conversion with Dual projector headlamps, and oem metal front fenders and hood.
