Project Datto: new shoes (almost)

Whoop whoop, just got contacted to inform me that my new wheels for the Datto have been finished assembling at WORK wheels in Japan. Now I’ll patiently wait for them to be delivered.

Yepp, I finally decided to spend some bucks and buy the dream wheels for my dream car.

WORK Equip40 in 15×8. Gold centers with polished lips. 2 things I already know by now:

  • I will love how they look
  • I will hate to clean them (the actual gunmetal wheels are so easy to clean

Pair of dattos

So today we dropped my mate Yves 70 240Z. Added some wheels and a front lip to. Changed the car completely. So we had to snap some pics 😉

Project datto: back on the ground

So after over 4 months on jackstands I managed to have most of the parts bolted back onto the car. I mounted my freshly painted rims and put it on the ground. Feels so good to see it sitting on all four tires. Need to dial in the coilovers now and do a complete geometry. For reference, the coilovers (BC Racing) are lowered all the way down at the moment. The rear is exactly where I want it to be. The front will be raised 5-10mm and I’ll have to dial out quite some camber!

And there is a change under the hood. I added at least 30hp 😉

Update on my KE25 and GT86

As for the GT86, it’s sold. Got a new daily already, something more practical, a station waon, it isn’t jap though! So I don’t know if I’ll show it here.

As for the KE25, F I N A L L Y the new shoes are on. Took me 11 months from when I put my first order on yahoo japan untill I got them together and mounted. I’m so so happy with the outcome!

They are WEDS Racing Tri 6.5x14ET-5 and 7x14ET-1 wrapped in quite skinny 165/60/14 tires. For a non fender flared KE, I think it looks tits! Needs a tad more low in the front though. Will have my mate Pentti fab me some short strokes 😉
