Just had the windshield put in today. There is still tape at the top of the window.

Yes, the mirrors are not on the car. They are getting painted black like the roof. Should have them back on Sat.

Yes, the door handles are also missing. Also being painted and should be back on Sat. They will be the same color as the body.

The parachute mount is also at the body shop. Its going to be the same color as the body. The gas door is the only other thing I am waiting on from the body shop.

Whatcha think???

Don't really like two tone on the S14, hard to break it in the rear. But for a race car looks really good. That stance is mean as hell. Haha, color matched chute mount. Can't wait to see it scream down the track.

thanks...

I think once the windows are tinted limo black, the black top will look more at home. Hopefully soon I will have it all together...

Looks GR8 ! ! ! Are you planning on installing some kind of wing and/or side skirts and/or a little and subtle rear over fender (to match the front S15's)?

I think some side skirts and some rear spats would look nice, but I need to spend my money and efforts on making power now http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I wont do a wing unless I need to. And it would be a sheetmetal drag style wing if I did.

I just got my motor back from the machine shop today. Everything looks great. I cant wait to start assembling it. Pix of that soon.

So exactly how does this car fix speeding tickets?

IvanTurbo240
01-12-2005, 09:43 PM
HAHAHA... Thats an advertisment for K40 Radar Detectors. They will pay for any speeding tickets you get for one year after a purchase.

My car will probably get pulled over on its maiden voyage down the street.

Yeah the tint will definitely help the look of the roof. Engine pics, those are what we are really looking forward too.

Its clean and I'm sure it will be fast, but the s15 headlights look like add-ons and seem very bandwagon-y. They don't seem to flow with the car, but thats imo.

Looks pretty good, the stance does look hella crazy!!! But I am not a fan of the S15 headlights or the hood. It prolly wont matter when it flys down the track! haha

What do you guys expect to run with this one? http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

love the color! if you dont mind me askin, what is the "name" of that color?

If I am not mistaken, the record was held by JUN for years at 8.8x and last summer was broken by DEVLSH in AU who went 8.76. I dont know of any times better then those.

The color of the car is Firemist red which was used on the '03 Hummer.

I am trying to go fast with class. The full interior is in the car and for NDRA I will be running with both front seats. I am pretty sure I can make the power to pull the numbers to stay on top of that class. If I need to, the interior can still come out of the car from the drivers seat back along with the pass seat and I will still be legal for NDRA. I dont know of better times then DEVLSH for a 240 / Silvia and both are door slammers although, DEVLSH has Lexan and a one peice front end and NO interior. I plan on keeping the OEM glass and as much interior as possible. The body will stay as it is with maybe an exception for a drag style wing if I need it on the top end.

apparently this is a street car, or you would not have : rear seats, normal seat belts, rear view mirror, or sideviews for that matter, tail lights and pretty much everything you have shown us in the pics, including a nice paintjob, makes no sense, but thanks for looking!

The DEVLSH black S14 is the fasted 240/silvia in the world with stock chasis (IRS)with high to mid 8's. There is a white S14 in Austrailia that has been tubbed with a 4 link rear end that runs mid 7's that car runs a FJ20 go figure.

Yes, you are correct, it is still a street car. It is purpose built for the "street class" NDRA Turbo 4 racing series. I am well within the rules right now and could take more weight out of it if I need to.

For the class, you must have side mirrors. The rear view mirror doesnt weigh much and holds the headliner up. I will keep it there. Headlights and tail lights are also required in this class.

The car has no factory safety belts. The back seat is in the car because again it doesnt add much weight.

For more information on what went into making this car what it is, please go to www.phatka-t.com/projectcars.htm (http://www.phatka-t.com/projectcars.htm) and see the NHRA certified 7.5 ET cage, Parachute, fuel cell, etc.

I love the look of big tires in the rear too. I've got 245/50R16s Nitto NT555R drags on the stock S14 rims. Looks sweet.....

Are the new radial street ET Streets any good?

I will post up some new pix tonight. I just put bigger tires on the rear. I didnt want to have to change my rear end gear ratio so I stepped up to 28" tall tires in the rear.

Currently I am running 15x3.5 Bogart P1 Billets in the front with 25x4.5-15 MT Front Runners and 15x9 in the rear with 275-60-15 MT ET Drag Radials
