Bits and Pieces

Posted in Car stuff, DIY on May 5, 2012 by Stanley Carter

Over the last month or two, I’ve been fixing, adding as well as upgraded some minor items for my Charmant, such as:

Flamebeater – mini fire extinguisher

New brake fluid

New spark plugs – Denso BKUR6EK (stock plugs for Perodua Kembara)

New plug wires (Germany made) and new intake filter

DIY fix for my broken windshield wiper switch handle

Here’s a youtube video demonstrating how it works:

And finally… I’ve replaced my faulty rear disc caliper (albeit still a stock unit) and my E-brake now finally works, though it’s still not as tight as I hope to be, but at least I can now use it for parking as well as 180 turns, for drift initiations, well it’s still pretty much hopeless though…

Forming a group

Posted in Sibu Drifting on May 3, 2012 by Stanley Carter

I’ve setup a Facebook Group for anyone that’s interested in Drifting in my local town (only), just to bring in more new bloods, Sibu obviously has quite a number of hesitant drifters to be that needed a bit more push, so with that said, seems like my effort has not gone to vain.

Although our group is still small, but at least we got cars coming in, meet ups and practise sessions have been carried out couple times in the past few months as well, so it’s a good start.

Here are some of the pictures and videos of other Sibu drifter rides parked as well as in action:

4AGE 16v Toyota AE70:

As you can see from both the YT videos above, both cars need to have their rear shocks replaced/upgraded, it’s just too soft at the moment.

There’s also a Celica with SR20DET which is currently having brake issues which will be rectified soon, so hopefully I’ll bring up some more videos of these cars in better form.
