Back in the saddle
After last year’s lack of track time I made a promise to myself to get to more events as a driver.
My venerable Ae86 whilst a cool and capable car is too fragile for these new demands.
Owing largely to the rarity of the parts and uniqueness of the engine conversion.
As detailed in earlier posts I had decided to pick up a 1992 Nissan Silva S13.
As i drive a RPS13 (180sx) daily I am fairly familiar with the chassis, so I decided to take the plunge!
The goals for the build where:
keep it standard as possible, reliable, cheap (lol) have some fun
try and make it look cool!
So this is what I ended up with.
