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. I personally knew this car and the driver and knew there was a lot of money spent on this car.

We are onboard with a Nissan Silvia S14 by the looks of the dash. This is a video clip shot on the Tsukuba circuit in Japan.
There are a whole bunch of cars in the mix here, but this driver of the car really flicks his car around and has some great handling techniques!!

AWD Turbo Opel Corsa – Build Thread

I happened to stumble across this build last night while doing my usual reading up and blog research. In South Africa we see a lot of Opel Corsa’s having bolt on turbo kits being put on and body kits and they are pretty much almost as popular as a modified VW Golf. So I was saying I came across something that is very unique and the Opel fans are about to do their nuts!! This car falls straight out of Switzerland and I’m told that to have a modified car …

Mardigras 2012 – D1S Drift Exhibition

I attended the D1S drift session at the 2012 Madigras with my matie Mr Cothill and his super sleek Nissan Silvia which has just been resprayed a glossy black by Dragon Customs.
Mardigras 2012 took place over 2 weekends and seemed to be quite entertaining. This was the 1st year that D1S has been invited to exhibit at the Mardigras Carnival. There were loads of cars sliding around the parking lot and the crowd enjoyed every second of it.. The parking lot had to be wet regularly to protect the surface …

So I’m not sure if most of you know, but our lady in red(ok yes the car is white, but red sounds good), Marlize had a bit of a accident a while back. Long story short some old lady was obvious jealous of how quick Marlize’s car was and decided to get T-boned by the nippy lil Mk2 GTI.

The official statement:

On Monday, the 14th of November I was innocently driving to work when a 70 year old lady decided to make a turn at the robot intersection right in front …

WPMC official practice day 21st Jan

This weekend was the 1st official practice at the WPMC. It was quite the awesome turn out of cars, it looks like this years 2012 season is going to rock.

Its awesome to see the Studebaker back on the track after its accident last year. The …
