    Default Kurts Ke70 Panel Van drift build.

    Hi guys, new here. Spotted this site when searching for setups for my ke70 and thought id join.
    Anyway, heres my car.


    This is when i got it, rocking a 3a/k50 combo. That lasted all of a week before i ripped it out to chuck a 4age in from my mates panel van.



    Stayed like this for quite a while as work kind of took over, but a few weeks ago a drift day came up on the 15th of december so got stuck back in to get it running. Got it turning over the other weekend but had no spark. This weekend we will have another shot at it and hopefully have it running.
    The other day got some lowering springs and cut a few coils off to level it out a bit.
    Before.

    After

    And thats where its at now. It will stay like this for the drift day, afterwards i will get stuck in improving a lot of things. Suspension, wheels etc.
    Thanks for looking.
    Kurt

    Not as far as i know, Not the two big windows on each side. From what I've seen the panos we got either have, no glass, big window only on the farthest rear. Small window only on the farthest rear. And I hav seen both panels have small windows either side. If u can source cheap front windows let me know lol

    So, Saturday was Hori Dori.
    After a ʞ$ɟ around with getting a trailer ended up being quite late but that was sweet.
    Found out i can't drive for shit, but will hopefully improve with more practice.
    And the car handles like shit. Sooooo much axel tramp, but that was expected as i havent done anything to the rear suspension.
    Couldn't hold a drift for more than a few seconds as the car just straightened out. Needs a shit load of work before the next drift day but i am picking up some reset leaves next week off this car

    Although car didn't handle well and my driving is sub average, still had a blast and can't wait to get out there again after i have sorted a few things.

    I bought myself an early christmas present



    Guards are pretty rubbish condition, but i didn't pay a lot for them so can't complain.
    Going to be buying a weld in coilover kit so suspension should be sorted by the next drift day.
