japan does so many things the right way

even shipping! Ordered some parts in Japan last thursday, they arrived in 4 days! Why can’t european couriers deliver things that fast?

But there are other fast couriers too, ordered some new cams in New Zealand for the hachi last week. They will be delivered today. Thats’s New Zealand – USA – Paris – Luxembourg – my doorstep in less than a week. That’s roughly 20258km or 13985miles in 6 days!
It will even take me more time to get these things mounted!

From time to time you’ll have to take some silly decisions.

Yes, for me there is no way to justify the price for some Takata belts. You can have any Sabelts, Schroths, Willans, … for less. But let’s see, there is no real reason why I should have pumped all that money over the last few years in my AE86 😀

Saw these babies the other day on the for sale section, Two 6-point Takata’s, second hand, never used, production date (FIA stamp) 2010! So spankin new, a tad cheaper than new ones, I’ve just had to have these. They will match the hachi’s orange!
