Ofunato City only had a 20cm wave so everything there is OK. I called one of my mates who was cold because he was on his way up a hill but other than that, he was fine.
Below is a google hangout recording that I took earlier on. It is 30 minutes long and it was live so my thoughts come out of my mouth as they arrive and I am often distracted by the TV news. But hey. If you have time to kill. Check it out.

I don’t usually do the whole product promo thing but this stuff is legend.

I got a pack shipped over and have used it to mod a bunch of stuff.
Here is a link to my latest fix:
k. promo done. though check this shit out… and give it a try. You won’t regret it.
Replacing bushes is crazy difficult but you do get aluminium spacer collars that solve the problem. I ordered a set from my buddy Yoshi (Ring's) and to keep costs down, with Yoshi telling me what to do, I did the hard work myself. It was surprisingly not that difficult, though having someone who knew exactly what to do giving me instructions made the task much easier. I probably would have dis assembled half the rear subframe if I followed the tutorials on the various Silvia and 240sx forums that are out there.
All in all. Job done for the price of cheap parts and a delicious Hamburg steak. AND MY CAR FINALLY DRIVES PROPERLY AGAIN…
Well almost... The transmission is still on death's door and could give out at anytime.

I spent the evening in a hotel on on Dougenzaka hill with my cat and the next day she joined me at the festival. It was raining out so we hit up the Shibuya Don Quijote to get some clothes and got on the train to Tokyo, then Chiba. I got a rain coat from a guy selling them on the walk to the venue but I only used it to walk there.
report after the jump ;)

It was no competition or anything. Just a track day with some mates. For me however it was a rather big deal. I saw it as a watershed in my sports car life. If the track turned out to be as fun as people said, I would continue to upgrade my Silvia and track it as much as possible with the intention to eventually participate in a low level competition sometime in the next year or so. If the drift bug didn’t bite me any harder than it had up till now, I would move on from the Silvia and head into big power and speed territory with a Supra or GT-R….
If there is one thing that the mac just can’t do, it’s blog well. All the blog editing software that is halfway decent costs a fortune and still can’t do shit compared to windows live writer for free. But being my mobile machine it tends to be the thing that gets photos off the camera and thus I need to trasfer the pics from the mac lappie to the windows deskie. Since the SSD and reinstall on the deskie.. I have been to lazy to make my network work again… till now. Expect a bunch of backlog over the next month or 2.
Oh and we went to the beach too !
