Default Hello everyone!

Well, I'm not in AK anymore, and haven't been for some time, however, felt it would be a good idea to check back in with everyone and see what everyone's up to. I'm still over in Okinawa, Japan, and loving every minute of it, outside of the monotony that is my job.. Feel free to hit me up here, and if I cant respond here, send a PM and I'll give you my Facebook information..

Robert

Okinawa is the island right? How is it there? I'm trying to decide if I should try to get orders to either the island or the mainland.

First, my WRX went to a guy that lives in Kodiak, and he LOVES the car. He was telling me in an email that he stomps just about everything he comes across. He was asking me about the clutch slipping, however, the 2004 WRX wont allow you to clutch drop the car into first gear. Its a safety factor built into those transmissions so that the clutch slowly engages allowing max power without breaking the gears.

Secondly, here on Okinawa (yes its a smaller island about 500 miles south of main island Japan) I have 2 Skylines. One is a maroon 1993 GTR R32 with the N1 Block, and internals. The only mods I have done to this car has been intake filters, Z32 MAF's, injectors (650cc from 450cc's stock) and a small amount of tuning. The car makes about 380hp at the wheels.

My pride and Joy is a 1989 GTR R32, built by Endless Racing back in the mid 90's. About 1995-1996. This car has an RB26 (punched out to 2.71L Stroker) with custom ground cams, 1000cc injectors, Veilside Fuel Rail (whens the last time you saw that? lol), N1 Crank, Forged Rods and Pistons (Jun), Lightweight Flywheel, Upgraded axles (for the Drag Racing Load) Full locking differentials (Front, Center, and Rear), Straight cut 1-2, Helical 3-4, and extended 5th gears, Custom Driveshaft, Veilside Rims 10Jx17, wrapped in 255/40 ZR 17's. The turbo under the hood is a TD-08 33B (which was replaced by the T88) and makes 750hp at the wheels (detuned and running on 1 fuel pump instead of both that are built into the car). She has Recaro seats, tuned suspension, and all the goodies needed for the drags. She is Blue with white stripes and lettering stating that it was built by Endless. Endless Racing made 3 of these cars. The one I have is the last one that is still intact. 1 of the others was blown up, and the other was destroyed on the track.

I have a photobucket account, which I believe is www.photobucket.com/rdcarpenter_jr
I also have a youtube account in which my username is imprezed04 (I have a video of the blue car running on there its just bad quality due to using an iphone for it.

Brando, you should hit me up when you get here. PM me and I'll give you my cell number or my Magicjack number so I can possibly take you to see the cars.

I love it here on the island, however, the only problem I have with being here on Okinawa, is the island is soooooo small. something like 72 miles long north to south and 11 miles wide at its widest point. Personally I'd recommend Mainland Japan, as it is larger, and all of the tracks are there imho.

ROB! What is UP?! I don't have FB, but it's good to know you're causing trouble in Japan. Your rides sound sweet.

Now hook us up with REAL pics or we'll ban you.

It depends on the condition and milage of the car, but generally they go for $11,000 to $16,000 ish. My GTR R32's weren't too bad at $5,600 and $7,800 each.

Here's the photobucket weblinks for each

Yea, 7fc bought it from me . I like what he's done to it, however, the clutch that was in the car when I sold it to him was put in when the motor was built. I havent seen what was done to the headlights recently though. He was saying that the clutch was slipping when trying to launch into first gear.. The transmission was made to do that on those cars to help try to save the transmission. We all know its known as a "glass transmission"

Also, the red GTR just got out of the shop yesterday (paint and body work) as soon as I can catch a good day I will take new pics of it and add them to the photobucket.
