Progress!!! Plus the end of the white car... Carnage inside

We got a ton done with the car(s) this weekend. Finished the cage and gussets, dimple died and all. The fuel cell mount is set, the interior is clean and scuffed to get paint this week. Gonna get rad with it. Thanks to Brian and Mike for all the help with the car this weekend. Wouldn't have gotten near as for without it.

Large update is large!!!!!!!

Started off by dragging the poor white car inside to finally asses the damage.


Got the car on the lift and it looked like this lol. BACK TO THE FUTURE!!!!


 I did a pretty good job of breaking everything on the passenger side of the car, especially in the rear.. Coilover is destroyed, and I snapped the RUCA, traction rod, and toe arm. The lower control arm looks more like a pretzel now as well. 


Not to mention the axle that I completely blew open and destroyed. It made a very nice mess of everything.


Upon removing the rear sub-frame, it was bent pretty badly as well. Good thing the black car has one!!!




The front lower control arm was super bent, and the tie rod was bent and broken at the steering rack. So far the Powered by Max knuckles look to have held up pretty damn well considering. 


Motor in...




Motor out...


Empty white car :(

 You can really see how much the roof caved from the 8 foot drop.




Sad car on a trailer, ready to go to the scrap yard to become someones can of peaches. Not sure why I thought thumbs up was a good choice for this one... Mike has it right. She has been a great car for the past 4 years, and was instrumental in learning to drift for me. She will be missed!!!!!


Mean tow rig.


On to the black car updates...

Gussets in on the cage lol. That's about it. Hopefully paint this week for engine bay and interior. Then mad swap time next weekend.




I am very happy with how much we accomplished this weekend. Can't wait to get the motor in this thing and drive the crap out of it!!!!

I also got some skirts, and horribly painted them and slapped them on the daily :)

The 93 and the 91 got some love this weekend!

This weekend was pretty productive for both cars. The 93 coupe got some fab lovin and the 91 coupe got some general exterior lovin.

The Black Car:
Brian almost finished the cage, just need the harness bar now...The door bars came out pretty badass if I do say so myself. We also shaved almost 100lbs by gutting the doors. Woooo!






He also wrapped my header better than jay z ever could.





 and I did some light fab work for once... I cut some shapes out of sheets of metal, then punched waaaay too many holes in them to tack to the rails. Go me!


On saturday, I welded for the 2nd time ever (first time involved me blowing a hole in the bed of a truck). My efforts resulted in this hideous looking beast.


Welding is fun. I shall continue my efforts in taming the electric beast.

Not pictured but still worth a mention, we put a seat in, and i swapped the steering wheel, hub and quick release from the white car... It was rather sad to be in there :( I also pulled ron davis off to check it for leaks. I really don't want to buy another radiator. Next weekend, we tear the white car to pieces!

The Gray Car:
First off, I slammed the car without ever aligning it, then put the 18x10 XXR 521 's on it that were never meant to fit, with spacers that are way too big. The result was a car that rubbed everywhere, and it felt like I was initiating drift every time I came down from a bump. 4 hours on sunday, and it has a proper alignment and feels cherry. I also installed a pignose lip and megan racing roof wing. All I need is a set of 180sx type x side skirts and I am pretty much done with this thing :)

On to the pics!

Fit very well considering how cheap it was...

For the price, the megan coupe roof wing is spot on. 

My Grip Royal wheel is peeking through :) You can also peep the pignose lip I got from Dave.


Starting to look good!

could go lower, but I really dont feel like aligning it again... Maybe when I get the skirts.

The wing is a nice subtle touch and goes well with the over all gray / black theme. 

Overall a tiring but productive weekend in the books, and I hope I get to mob hard on it at some point this week, and next weekend. Gotta get this thing going!!!

Matt Arruda ( Iox BOSS xoI ) does the Drift 2 Cobra for Forza 4!!!

So Right when the video came out Matt messaged me on Facebook, saying "I should probably do that mustang"... Fast forward to now, and here it is in all of it's glory. If you have not seen this guys work before, get ready to have your mind blown, and go like his page here, and add him on x box live (gamertag in the title), and look for this car in the market if he chooses to sell it ;)

The attention to detail is insane, from the logos, the simulated light bar and front strobes, to the extension of the windshield to include the banner, this thing is as legit as it gets.

Enough talk, here is the 04 cobra used in Icon's 'Motorcycle vs. Drift Car Battle 2' done up forza 4 style by Matt. I have included some other designs of his below the jump as well.







Well done man, thank you for all the effort put forth in making this, and all the others you do.

Any companies out there wanna contract Matt to do your car forza style?? Get at him on Facebook :)
