Missle at Minami, Ebisu // Japan 2010
February 7, 2013
So it runs and the bowls don’t leak! I’m having a little issue with the throttle returning to idle even after a new auxiliary spring was added. Soon I will pull the carbs down and service the main return spring assembly.
I plumbed in a new low pressure (2-3.5psi) fuel pump and a Holley fuel pressure regulator. There is also a splitter block in there to feed the excess back to the tank. Remember that these carbs are built to run on gravity feed and hence really dislike pressure into the bowls.
I make many apologies for the visual and auditory experience of this video:
1) Damn that engine bay is ugly! It’s a work in progress and the carbs have been set up for initial testing and tuning without to much thought towards cleanliness and presentation. This will come as soon as it runs nicely.
2) Canon 7D microphones and controllers suck and I wish I had a better way of getting crisp sound.
I drove it up and down the drive way a bit bit and it definitely needs a tune but it runs fairly nicely and sounds great!

I developed a random film I had lying around a while back and to my suprise, half of it was from Ebisu, Japan when we went in 2010! Enjoy these two of the clean red 180SX at Kita Course. Go here for some medium format photos of the same day and follow the links for more. Also, check out this link for some more photos from our Japan drifting tour.

I’m having a little flash back from my trip to Nippon in 2010, 2 years ago, I can’t believe it’s been so long. Here’s an image I shot from the junkyard of MOTORFIX, one of my favourite garages in the world. Thanks once again to Nozomu’s hospitality. Click here to see a small collection of motoring images.

I had a dream about this exact scenario about a year ago and remembered it when watching this video, it was compete deja vu except in my dream I was driving my truck and it was as fast as Adam’s old 180SX was. Anyway, enjoy the fruit of drifting AE86s in japan.

Thanks Chris for the photos! This was such a fun day, I can’t wait for the next one. Between motorbikes I’ve been getting along with fixing the radiator. I have everything I need, I just need to modify the water outlet to fit the thermo switch and wire that in and we’re good to go.
See Freshly whipped for more of the day. Come on Chris, get some more video up!
