RIP 'The Pipe'

Well my old faithful mega pipe broke last night, you can see it here from another drift day.

I just ran it at QR so i didn't have a muffler on... unfortunately no other track lets me run it, even though there are far louder silvia's and skylines etc... It fell off half way through the night and i just cable tied it back on, thinking it was fine. First lap out again it fell off and on closer inspection it completely snapped the welds.

On top of this, the bolts were giving me grief when i was trying to put it on at the start of the night, and trying to get it off one of the bolts binded up and we had to snapp it off.

Its good it happend now though cause it was going to be the last track day i ever use it anyway. Next week i will be welding on my new cannon that i bought in Thailand last year. Been looking forward to that going on for quite some time now.

Also somewhere during the night i lost my front lip on the car and didn't realise untill the end of the night... So my chin lip is sitting somewhere in QR and is probably destined for the bin :(
I have left details and sent an email, so hopefully someone finds it and keeps it for me...
I have another good condition one but i much prefer this one cause it has so much battle damage

  1. Break somethin' you love and buy somethin shiny to replace it. Yup that's the way tuners are. I know cause I use broken parts as an excuse for mods all the time.
