Id like to give an official welcome to our newest members of the team.
Everyone say hi to Steven Fishel and Charlie Quatmann.

Charlie has been around as long as I can remember. Riggin his super rad SC400 and even his old Tacoma around the states with us. Venturing out for Gridlife and Final Bout to even competing in the MDU and State of Drift series. That still hasnt kept him from loading up and making the hike just to drive in a parking lot all night for our local events.

Charlie MDU

Steven JDMHookup

The same can be said for Steven. Streeting his s13 and s197 Mustang, he’s had perfect attendance all around the midwest for years. winning State of Drift last year, and already currently sitting on the podium he’s no stranger to competition either.

These guys place consistently because they drive every chance they can. Its easy to forget why we started throwing these shitboxes around sometimes. The drive and spirit that these dudes possess is quite refreshing,. and that’s why we asked them to join.

It’s been a long 9 months of work on the S14. As of a few weeks ago, the AEM is tuned and produced 507 wheel horsepower uncorrected. Wednesday night, widebody/aero were mounted, finishing up with an alignment on Thursday. The entirety of this project has been a team effort. Thanks to everyone who helped me along they way from wrench time to full on fabrication. Here are a few photos to display the finished car/engine.

Aero! Minus the backordered front bumper x__X

All for now. Myself and a bunch of other CF are headed to Nashville, Tennessee for Import Alliance this weekend. I’m excited about my first event of the year and finally driving the Super Speedway roadcourse!

For the past 3 weeks its seemed like ive been saying “last piece of the puzzle, I’ll be driving tomorrow” well I guess here I go again.

Put on my ‘lower ball joint bushings’ lastnight, so now everything should be solid in the rear subframe! I also fastened my ebrake cables so theres no play. Its on the looses it can go right now, and Ive never had one pull this hard! I’ve been playing lots of forza too,…so im pretty sure i got the ebrake, and extension stuff down,…watch out now!!!!……lol

Next on the agenda:

  1. put some miles on it to feel things out and to break it in
  2. fix an oil leak i have coming off one of my oil cooler lines
  3. alignment ( im thinking -2 camber front, -1.5 rear, o caster, 0 toe…comment whats ya think! )
  4. intercooler/intake piping done
  5. powersteering installed

…..all of which can be done inbetween me driving it around still. I havent drove it in 8 months tho, and its going to be a completely new car to me.

I only got about 2 weeks to break it in……so…..

…Whose down for some cruises!?
