Hey guys...

Just an update. Today we went cruised around a bit and saw some sights. We hopped into cabs (there is a funny story with that, which I will tell in person) and cruised over to super autobacs in Chiba. Well firstly the place rocks, however the didnt have any of the things I wanted in stock. lame...

The carpark was full of exotics, andrew and dallas would be pleased as we counted about 5 hotted up Series 6/7 Rx7's. Including this yellow one which we perved on until the car alarm went nuts. (see photos)

Inside I brought a few odds and ends, nismo junk, racing gloves etc. The other guys got a few odds and ends, like car stereos, waste gate actuators etc etc. After that we went next door to this place which had CD/DVD in english on the door. Turned out to be a big 2nd hand games store / new and used music and dvd store. I have NEVER seen so many snes games in my life. You can get game boy colours (the old ones) for 15 bucks 2nd hand.

After that we saw this building that had "games" so we went in. Turned out to be a game hall / pokies room. We tried getting a toy snoopy from one of those lame claw game things, but lost. The lady there thought we where funny and tried to help. Was good fun.

We bailed from that and headed into a local chiba shopping centre, I brought a few astro boy toys and the other guys brought model cars and airsoft guns.

We grabbed dinner at a jap place, was awesome food. I had these chicken wings to die for. Soooo nice.

Then we went into Shinjuku to check out the action, was quite late (10pm) and the shops where starting to close so we headed back to chiba and walked back to chibaminto where the hotel is.

Was a top day, saw heaps of cool things. Took heaps of photos (but could only upload a few.. Internet is sllloooowww from here.. Damm dial up through a PABX).

Hope all is well in oz..


This thing was PHAT! So phat that us just looking at it was enough to set off the alarm system. Very sexy car indeed..


Ohhh the goodness.. I dont need to tell you what this is.


Such sexy men!

Ahh morning all.

1:44 here - as Carlo mentioned we have just got home after walking form Chiba (Trains stop after midnight) - its 3 degrees here so slightly on the chilly side.

Today was tops - Super Autobacs Naganoma, although awesome to explore left a bit to be desired in terms of stock but hey what can you do.

At least 4 of our group are now armed in airsoft weaponry so its been an interesting afternoon of hotel room skirmish.

Tokyo Autosalon tommorrow so shitloads more photos to come - I have around 500 so far.

Anyhow my bourbons finished so im off to sleep.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Merli: Looking into the extension kits - Autobacs has to order and Up Garage wont get for us.

12:25 here peeps.

What a day its been. We had an early start and headed out to TAS and met with Demon Dave and Rezz before entering the real Autosalon that puts Sydneys effort to shame.

So many nice pics to come. Most of us have spent way too much cash - we filled a trolley with gear at the Ichikawa Super Autobacs store tonight so we are feeling the dent in our wallets as we speak.

Lots of cool shit here.........awesome cars on every street corner. B-man you would dig the sheer number of crazy pimp cars with insane camber and some with airbag suspension.

We are heading back to TAS tommorrow - its really not possible to get the whole show covered in 1 day.

Stay tuned... more to come later.

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
