Kaihatsu Update with Dylan Cothill

After the unfortunate failure of my Silvia’s SR20 and it needing a R16K rebuild, I came across an amazing deal.
Brenton’s V8 S13 has received a lot of bad reviews in the past and sat on Gumtree for sale for a long time as there were rumours going around about the chassis being skew, everyone warned me about this car.
