Hey everyone, I have been going through a lot of ridiculousness to get ready for the D1 US vs Japan but things are not going to well. My S15 has been gone since Formula D Irwindale and will not be coming back. The v8 z will not be ready because of a lack of budget, and the sr powered z was supposed to be here today but I just found out that the shipping company has not even left New Jersey yet!

So I am writing to anyone that may know of a person or company that has a D1 ready car available for this weekend. I am a licensed driver and would really like to take part in the competition this weekend. Please post any info on cars available or email me at chris@driftalliance.com

Thanks

There is no chance of the z arriving in time? Is anybody at the competition allowed to let you use their car?

Jeez. I can't believe that noone can come up with a vehicle? Couldn't someone let you co-drive with them? There's no chance of you going against them in the finals, right, since it's Japan vs. USA? :confused:

That sucks, Chris, wish I knew someone that could help you out. :(

if papa gushi is driving the WRX, then that leaves the green 240 available.

Also, ross is driving his personal car, so the rotary power RX7 is MIA.

Taka / hiro might have cars around....

Under the hood: SR20DET (black top),Blitz BOV,Koyo Radiator,Bltiz FMIC,downpipe,Nur-spec racing exhuast,Nismo motor mounts, tranmission mount, RPS street max clutch, Sard FPR (uninstalled),walbro fuel 255lph pump

Suspension: Tein super drift, Kazama rear upper control arms,Tanabe drift spec sway bars, rear solid subframe mounts.

Interior: Defi guages (boost,water temp,oil pres.) Defi Link system, S14 seats,gutted (ready for a cage)

All it needs is rims,tires, and a LSD.

This is if you can't find a car at all. He'll let you borrow it for the event. :)

Stannyboy, The G35 is on a container to Japan for Tokyo Auto Salon and C.Wan will be driving the Falken FD3S.. hmm..

Chris, I am sorry to hear about this. I am sure everything will work out.

Would it matter that you will be driving a NON Falken sponsored car?

I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of DA but I'm a sport about things like this.

I have an S13 that is available with an RB20DET. It's fairly built for a street car and only necessitating small things. It can be seen on my myspace @

For those who are offering, make sure that your vehicle can meet the requirements of D1 tech. Just FYI. ;)

this was the next car i was thinking about, but i wasn't going to volunteer your car for you.

His cage will DEFINATELY pass tech.

what about that guy steve-o's car that JR drove for the FD final?

oh, and T3 has 2 AE86's. I know Al is driving one, the other might be available.

I have a back injury thats gonna get me 8 screws in the back and that cuts me outta fun until next Year easily. So my car is there and I will easily say that my cage albeit simple, it's pound fer pound beter then 90% of the cages you'll find in most cars. Thats pro cars too when it comes to quality. Nevermind that the pros are using my fabricator now too. It's an option. I just need to slap the master cylinder rebuild kit in it and If you can find a two way diff the car is available.

You break it you buy it...or die! Thats always an option LOL!

Check with Non Fujita @ www.enonvativeforce.com, he should still have the Tein sponsored turbo KA24DE s14 that Gui Gui drove 2yrs ago in D1. May also want to check w/ signal auto/McKinney/ect. Good Luck Chris! I definately want to see you out there.
