I second that same thought too after looking at the pictures carefully. And that is a Datsun 280zx hood vent, correct? That is a nice M30 you have there.

cage was built by my sponcer future fabrication. 2 of the best fabricators full race had broke off and started there own shop. i can do some fabrication, but i would never be able to construct a cage that tight tucked and legit. its like its not even there. its probly the best thing about the car.

no bumper core, zipties, and something to trim the fiberglass with. very decent. if i had bought a more square bumper it would work even better. i belive an r32 bumper would work but most of them look gay.

I love FIR Main. Did you drive the last event? My dads car blew up when we were messing around on the track before the gates opened so I left early.

P.s. drifting a '74 260Z with an L28ET and no power steering is a handful. My poor dad watched me spin his car super close to the tire wall. Stupid puddles.

Looks proper. Any plans for new wheels? Or is the car going to get smashed up enough to care for? :twisted:

600hp and backwards entries.

just kidding...about the horse power...

manufacturer defect. the replacement is suppost to be tank proof. but it ripped a hole in my floor board behind the seats, and destroyed my ebrake cables. so i had to fix all that shit. the floor board is done for though.
