• OTHER: Honda S600 “Barn Find”

    A While ago my Buddy Stefan, Manuel and I and went to a special place with a lot of cars and carparts. Unfortunately they didn’t have any Z-Parts so i left a bit earlier since i had the longest drive back home. A few weeks later Stefan calls me and tells me the owner of this place told him about a Honda S600 or S800 which is somewhere in the huge area. In total one complete car and two in parts. Since one of my friend is one of europe’s biggest Classic Honda S-Chassis specialist and another one is currently restoring two of them i thought this might be interresting.…

  • ATENZA: OEM Accessory Tray

    I know it’s nothing big (Some small bits from Japan are on the way and some bigger plans for the future are there), but since we’re making a big roadtrip in our trusty and spacey Mazda 6 soon, i thought i’d upgrade my Mazda a little bit with an accessory Tray, which is a Mazda dealer accessory: Before After πŸ™‚ It’s perfect for storing a Mobile phone while charging it at the USB slots or putting some chewing gum in there πŸ™‚

  • 240Z: Transmission disassembly part 1

    I’m working on a huge post about Z Factory transmissions and options but i decided myself i’d rather get some physical work done on my transmission while the weather is nice. The goal is to check the state of my original FS5C71A factory five-speed (non-US-spec) and then decide if i’ll stick with the stock transmission or switch to the FS5W71C transmission from the S14 which i bought a while ago. So this is how i started on saturday: Decided to give the transmission a little cleanup with some engine cleaner before i get my hands on it: Then drain the transmission oil before proceeding to avoid a huge mess in…

  • RACE: GP Diessenhofen 2016

    The title says “race” but honestly i didn’t really get what the event was about yet. The homepage lacks a lot of information and there were some showlaps in the morning and some “race” laps in the afternoon but i have no clue if it really was a race or more timed showlaps. Nevertheless we had a few fun hours at the GP Diessenhofen today. I heard the first time about the event last year and since it’s only 40minutes drive from my place we decided to have a look. It’s a very small track through the historic city Center of Diessenhofen directly at the river Rhein and then surrounding…
