Default My new drift RIG(s)! PIX!

Raining again here in michigan! So i have taken some pics (i know indoor pictures suck, but what can you do?).

First two pics are of my new 200mm rx-7 shell i have almost finished (have to add the exhaust yet-see it in the last pic!) It is sitting on top of a Factory Team TC3 with ultra wide dished wheels and ABS drift tires.

The next three are of my DRIFT rigs, the NSX is sitting on top of a TT-01 with dished wheels and ABS drift tires and lots of cool mods setup for drift. Note: the mesh grills on both cars. You like?

Then there is a pic of some freshly dished wheels i have made that will match up with the RX-7 pretty well i hope. I havent had a chance to put them on there yet and take a pic, but i will. I pretty much posted the pic of the wheels so you new guys could see how a dished wheel looks and how it adds depth to the wheel. Plus if done right it will allow propr fitment of 200mm bodies on 190mm based touring cars.

And finally the last pic is of the exhaust i made out of aluminum. I am still trying to figure out how i am going to mount it.

Yeah i got the body in carbon fiber trim on a popular auction site. And i made the muffler out of two old DecoColor paint markers. One fine tipped (for the tip) and one broad (for the actual muffler). See the DecoColor brand paint markers are made of aluminum. What i did was sand off all of the labeling (it was painted on, and kind of a pita to remove) and then cut the pieces to the right length at the ends (the side opposite of the tip) where they are butted. Therefore you should have two pieces now. Both should look like little metal cups, one short with a small diameter, and one longer with larger diameter. Then grind down the bottom of the two cups so they are flat. After they are flat on the bottoms, find the center of the bottom of the cup and drill a hole in both pieces. Now use a small bolt and nut and screw the two pieces together. You shold now have what looks like a muffler, and there will be a very large whole on the end opposite from the tip. Cut a piece of aluminum (the thicker the better) in the shape of a circle the size of the opening. Drill a whole in the center of that, put a bolt though it (in the picture you can see i am holding on to this bolt) and then push it snuggly into place. You shoud now have a scale size muffler. Just figure out how to mount it and your done! Oh yeah one more thing, remember to empty the paint out of the paint markers before you start. And if you have done this right and are rally accurate about the center lines of your holes and make sure your bolts are in the center of everything, you should be able to chuck the bolt end i a dremel and polish the whole thing up real easy! Good luck guys, i hope this helps.
