ian435, type RAWR and P43, thanks for the skate support! Good to see other skaters on this forum. DL was at the drift event all day yesterday, I was working on my car all day bleeding, accidentally cutting through fuel hardlines, fixing my mistakes and hooking in the hydro. Everything was good, went to back out and had no brakes, thought it was weird because i bled it and it felt good but thought i might need to bleed again. Started and noticed my front right rotora caliper had cracked at the bleeder valve. Pretty damn sure honking on the nut with a 10mm wrench didn't cause it to break the way it did but whatever. SO anyway DL swooped me and i got to go and watch the event. Our buddy Danny Lee made it to the finals and ended up getting fourth. Really stoked. DL killed it in the practice sesh afterwards, posted the flip video on his car build on bimmerforums he was pissed he didn't get a firesuit and sign up to compete, especially after we caged his M3 the other week for the comp. We just both though a bunch of really sick D1 drivers were gona show up and it wouldn't be worth it. But yeah he prolly would have placed or atleast made finals.

Anyways, so yeah worked on fixing the brake all day, Dustin noticed that i have two bleeder valves (one on each side haha, i'm a dumbass) and so we decided the best idea is to take it to Future Fab here in phoenix and TIG weld the bleeder closed. So doing that tomorrow. I'm going to prolly order the RWD spool soon ( i was hesitating because its 8 weeks backordered from Japan, nobody else than Watanabe makes them i've concluded, everybody else gets them from Watanabe in Japan) but yeah hopefully get the RWD action hopping haha.

bOBBy, yep thats my car, i remember you for sure man, you ever get those rotors? I ****ing hate Rotora...haha i would sell ya my rotors now if i was rich and would buy new **** just because it cracked but ineed$ haha....i'm all about the ghetto riggin haha.

Thanks for the support everyone and go drift your ru and rollerblade haha. I'll post pics when its done, so be patient. Peace
