Thread: JZX100 Chaser Tourer V from Australia

    Default JZX100 Chaser Tourer V from Australia

    Hello, I'm Terry.

    This is my car. I'll be separating this into a few different posts, this is a rough history of my car since first purchasing it. When it comes to Stance, Australia has generally been a bit behind the times, car modification has kind of had it's own direction here for quite some time, especially in Perth - being the most isolated city in the world it generally took its own direction and was unaffected by modifying trends elsewhere.

    Stance in particular has been very slow to take off here, WA has traditionally been very horsepower orientated. Photography and car aesthetics have generally been put aside in the pursuit of performance. However over the last half a year or so I've pushed the stance culture a fair bit here.

    Also remember, that ADR's (Australian Design Rules) are pretty harsh here, any cop can pull you over and basically without any justification to his argument - sticker your car.

    Being stickered/defected/Canary is a serious fuck around, you'll be sent to an inspection pit, basically a government run area where they will scrutineer your car, they'll rape you for everything and force you to remove everything that's considered illegal on your car, exhausts, intercoolers, tint, HID's, wheels, coilovers, brakes etc. You can get sent back or denied having your sticker being removed as many times as they like, I've been stickered once and it took me 2 months to remove. More or less they force you to return your car to stock, or they have your car unregistered.

    There is also what's called the Hoon laws, which is basically laws to stop any kind of street racing, burnouts, drifting etc. In other words, get caught doing this, lose your license and your car, get caught twice the penalties double, get caught 3 times they'll try to crush your car. Why I mention this is to help you guys understand how hard it is to get away with modifying your car here, cosmetic mods especially will turn you into cop bait.

    Anyone onto my piece of shit:

    I've had this car for about 3 years, done fuck all to it because of my uni student income. Has a bit of a colourful history, I'm adament it's been stolen in Japan and sent over here, reasons I say that is the VIN number is SCRIBED INTO THE WHEEL WELL, and the serial number on my single set of keys is also scratched off. Not dodgy at all. Some asshat has done a hack job of rolling the front guards and it has cracked paint there.

    When I bought it from Melbourne and it got sent over here, it was actually in really good nick, bar slight scratches on the front and rear from asshat dock workers it was alright, oh and the lady who delivered my car to my house also rode the fuck out of my clutch as I saw it pull in, imagine the pangs of despair that I had.

    So after about 6 months, my mate ran into the back of my car. Then this chick swiped the side of my car as I stood next to it, funny because I also said "Hey just watch out you're a bit close to my ca-" *scratch*

    Then the almighty drift fail of my friend into my parked car. I was standing next to it and as he left he managed to pitch his car into the front corner.

    Now it's got plenty of key marks, scratches and dents, basically killing any love and passion I once had for looking after her. I use to leave it dirty and my friends would write silly things on it, until some random spanner took it too far and wrote "KILL JEWS, ZEIG HEIL C*NT" with a Swastika on the back of it. So now I clean it occasionally.

    1997 JZX100 Chaser Tourer V,

    gear.

    As you can see I've got a build which will hopefully leave me with an all round street car. Hopefully now that I've finished uni I can get some of this underway.

    $180 Blitz/Trust mutant intercooler.


    Oh noes a leak!




    All sweet now.

    TRD underbrace, made a big difference to front end responsiveness.



    Front brake setup.






    Then I lowered it about 8 fucking centimetres.

    PART 3



    Getting a little low.



    That cooler pipe is 9cm high for reference. Exhaust is roughly 5cm.

    Pretty dope picture of my car I got in the mail from the government:





    Picture taken over the weekend.


    For now I'm looking into some SSR Vienna's



    18x9 +4
    18x10 +11

    Other then that, desperately want a 2-way. Rumor has it a car that looks very similar to mine nailed a curb linking 2 corners at 3am one night. Ended up with like like 60mm toe out and limped home.

    Got new tyres too, some Ex-Nankang design called Stratas, I thought they would be a joke but after about 3 attempts at second gear skids I decided my driveline was suffering horribly.

    Got some Falken's for the front, nothing amazing, understeered clutch kicking into a corner once other then that they are pretty decent.

    Got some stickers:



    Designing some stickers:



    Results of a photoshoot a few weeks back















    So next up is probably:

    Tint,
    Ganadors,
    Diffuser
    Different front lip
    2-way
    Bride,
    Dump
    PFC + EBC + tune
    bash plate
    Handbrake shoes

    At the moment my Meisters are likely to be swapped out.

    I want to go to a 9.5 +12 all around or maybe 10 +15, as I intend to drift/do skid the car, I do want to be able to rotate tyres.

    I'm trying to source some 15mm bolt on spacers for the front, and buying a guard roller this week to keep doing work to the fronts. Making my offset 18x9 +5 and 18x10 +20 on some new Falken 215/40's on the front and 235/40 Strata's on the rear.

    I'm still debating new wheels too, I'd rather not run spacers, as that's dish/concave etc I'm missing out on. Any thoughts on what to get? Thinking XT7's, SSR Vienna, Veilside Racing Andrew (rarer then hens teeth)

    Once I get the spacers I'll be doing a shoot on my own, that 4 Chaser shoot was really rushed as we only had one chance to have all 4 cars together. So I look forward to sharing some nice new pictures with you guys!

    So yeah that's a rough history of my car, hope you enjoyed!

    Hahah yep mate!

    I see you're from Melbourne, so really I've got nothing to complain about against NSW and VIC haha, I did get pulled over by undercovers the other night, basically sat there going "FFS not leaving without a yellow"

    Guy has a lol at my fitment, asks a few questions about the car and sends me on my way. Either way I'm not complaining but I know I run the gauntlet everyday trying to dodge defect notices hahah.

    Thanks man, by drift it it's more like clutch-kick and dodge curbs haha, hopefully I'll begin to excel at it once I get a 2-way. Car has tons of body roll and getting off the throttle causes epic tank slapping.

    You can have mine if you drive into it and get the insurance money for it haha, I've been obsessing about getting a FD for weeks and weeks now!

    Thanks guys! I'm really surprised, I've always referred to her as the "Shitter-V" as she's all banged up etc, maybe the photo's are a little deceptive haha.

    I love the beat up drift car look, and it's slowly becoming that through her life.

    sexy thread...

    any plans on going lower?

    No sadly not, with the chassis rails being 9cm off the ground, and the exhaust basically looking like a pack of wolves have molested it, there's no point really. Plus adding a diffuser to it will make it scrape on everything.

    I enjoy driving it hard and I don't want it so low that it impedes on my enjoyment. Next set of wheels will probably be a tad wider.

    Do your best to imagine it with a different set of wheels, a little wider, a diffuser, front lip that doesn't have a missing mid section, Reinhard blast pipes and ganador mirrors, that's basically what I'm aiming for.
