Happy Thanksgiving guys today .
I am about to head this morning to go and pick up my dad from the airport running a little late or should I say he's , uh , his flight is actually running a little early .
A little bummed this morning .
The whole plan was to pick him up in the twin turbo with 370 Z .
This is his flames A K A zero out of the hood and uh I broke it last night like a typical auto move .
So I'm picking him up in the super and I'm actually taking him back to the shop and I'm gonna give him a ride in my car from Formula Drift .
He hasn't seen that car since it was like a bare shell .
So even though it's kind of beat up right now , I think it's lot of fun seeing the transformation going from a rip .
Put my camera up .
I wanna see what you think of the super .
I haven't floored it for you yet .
Ok , I , I know you like the exhaust sound but get ready for my dialog .
You got your lines rehearsed .
Am I gonna be on youtube tonight or this is a Netflix show .
Oh , this will be on Netflix .
OK , cool .
I been on Netflix yet .
It's a , it's a day in the life of uh me and my dad super .
Tell me when we're live but we've been live .
That red , that red light that's blinking .
How you doing ?
Just got to Florida trying to beat out a snowstorm .
Have to rush back .
But riding in a Super is much better than plowing snow .
That's what I always say .
How fast do you think this thing will be compared to , let's say the Porsche ?
I don't know , probably .
Do you think it's as fast as my prelude ?
Well , you , you , you're pushing like 700 in that thing right now , right ?
Yeah , 700 .
What question , what was the question ?
Is this as fast as what the Porsche ?
You said it , it was faster .
I don't know when I saw you last one was um I imagine it's pretty similar .
Oh , I don't want to use language that will be , you know , uh unprofessional .
So I just say , holy shit , man .
That was fast .
It's pretty zippy , but my neck is OK .
It's OK .
I didn't realize that you haven't been to my warehouse .
That's exciting .
I don't know how long you've had it , but I haven't seen it and I want to see it and it looks like today is the day I was getting all excited and trying to think of a cool car .
To give you a ride in and give you something to look forward to .
But I , I can show you my warehouse .
That's filthy right now .
It's ok .
I can overlook the filth filth , whatever .
Welcome to the warehouse .
So you haven't seen this piece .
All you care about is my bathroom .
You know the thing that I'm giving you a ride in ?
I know you're looking around at all this stuff .
This is that white car , the one from forever ago .
This is like , as good as it gets for race car stuff .
Oh , shit .
And that's the engine bay .
You never do anything with V H D .
Not really , they're just kind of boring .
And that's the whole trunk set up .
Oh my God .
So , what are the fan blades for ?
That's the radiator .
That's the , the radiator is back here .
So , uh , it gives you a little bit more room in front , um , more volume in the system .
Keep it a little cooler and when you're drifting you don't see air flow anyway .
So you can fit bigger fans if you put it in back , less chance of damaging a radiator too .
I didn't know what that was .
Now , I see it's a radiator here .
And then right here is all the fueling stuff .
Is it ?
What's up ?
This isn't street legal ?
It is .
Got a plate on it .
Hope , I hope he does something else with the steering wheel .
But what you're expecting with this car .
I don't know if I'm gonna vomit or if I know what you call , get a headache or who knows what .
But it's gonna be exciting .
I've never been in a , an automobile like this .
Um , getting into the seat and all the stuff was a project in itself .
But , oh , I don't need to go too fast .
I mean , since I already did , what , 100 and 38 in the Toyota , something like that .
We didn't go that fast .
Here we go .
You want , you want me to drive at him ?
Get the hang of it , folks .
Just a little practice .
So excited , so excited .
I don't vomit on Thanksgiving day .
Very , very strange .
Lots of stuff .
I don't know what it is .
Maybe oxygen levers and buttons and wires and tubes .
Big e brakes , sting shaft without a wheel .
Yes , it's a little noisy .
I'm trying , I hope you hear me .
I am trying to talk loud .
I put my glasses on so I look a little cooler like I know what I'm doing on Adam .
Let's get this buggy on the road .
Don't make me vomit on Thanksgiving .
You don't have a radio or a CD , do you here ?
Oh , yeah , we do have a radio system .
I can come .
Should have got my video camera .
What did you bad ?
We got breaks .
What is this ?
You know how loud the transmission is ?
Speed folks .
66 oh .
Had all the transmission noise , please .
That's how I shift .
What are all these buttons for start fans ?
Nitros armed purge lights , lights , cool suit , winds , wipers , left turn signal , right turn signal feels as fast as a Subra is the way it's pulling is it ?
You said it feels fast , I mean , and felt as much as a super on that range .
But what do I know ?
What do you think so far ?
A little noisy transmission pretty quick though ?
Yeah , like I said , it feels as fast as the super .
Is it way faster , way faster , way lighter , way more power ?
I hope he knows how to drive .
I smell rubber .
I don't know what to say .
I don't know what to say .
Good thing .
He knows how to drive or the kid does know how to drive , I must admit , but it was a little scary actually , it was a lot scary .
I , uh , I was bummed that I couldn't take you in the 37 Z but I hope you had fun on this one .
I don't know if I would categorize it as fun , but it was definitely an experience .
That's what I'd use .
The word experience .
Have you ever taken anybody that really flipped out when you drove like that ?
So I don't really take this car out often .
So , like , especially during like four wheel drift season , the last thing I want to do is take it out on the street and then have a break or anything .
But , no , I mean , you're , you're probably one of the first people to have a reaction .
It's fast .
And it was funny because I was half throttle before .
And you're like , yeah , it almost feels as fast as super , all of a sudden .
Well , you were breaking loose all the time and it probably has a straight axle on back .
No , it doesn't have a straight axle .
But these tires on the back are the tires we run in F D and we have a regulation so we can only fit a 2 55 .
If this car had the same tires as super , this thing would just be so fast .
Yeah , I mean , I could feel the things fish tailing around once you really hit it .
I mean , we were in fourth gear going sideways .
I know , believe me .
I know I was here .
I witnessed it and , uh , ok , lunch time , if my stomach can handle it now , it's a pretty cool car though , right ?
Like , you know , it's all over the place .
It's very , very planted and put together .
You don't have a problem with any of the public reporting you or something .
I mean , I'm sure it happens but , uh , I don't know , you have to get pulled over and it'll happen eventually .
But , uh , wow , it does have a license plate .
It's ok .
Well , you need some ac , you need a radio with a CD and you know , a few little luxuries and you'll be all set .
So , so believe it or not , this right here , this is kind of like ac , so we fill that tank with ice and it runs ice water through my shirt .
Keep me cool .
And then we've got a fresh air system .
So there's this vent that plugs into my helmet and it pumps fresh air through my house .
This is , this is cool .
Moving right along .
I just , I want to bring attention to the fact that you made it sound like you had an issue with the guy .
He goes , I , I've got two issues .
The skyline is two issues .
You wanna .
Well , folks , first of all , I did have a coworker who was guiding me in , but she's from Venezuela .
So I'm not sure that she was understanding the concept of getting the vehicle .
No , she was good .
I can't blame it on her .
Um You had me worried that something was wrong with the skyline and they're like , yeah , the , the first problem is is I get into this , but you were like the first problem the line is having you , you , you see , I pull into the garage and I driver era .
I , I smashed the fender a little bit and cracked the bumper but you said you bought it out .
Mostly folks .
It is my fault .
So , but what , what's the second one ?
It was in the garage and start smelling you know how you smell the gas and everything and you've got a water heater and a furnace on heat , something's going on .
It's dripping out the gas tank where the seam is on the gas tank .
It's dripping out there .
Really , really , really out of the sea .
Well , I mean , gas tank is usually pressed where there's a seam flat spot in the middle .
I'll look at it and we didn't notice it or I never noticed it before because I don't think I ever filled the tank .
It was always running half or below .
So it wouldn't leak out there .
It , it is , you know what I mean ?
It is possible if the tank was like , super , super full , like if you topped it off three quarters , it shouldn't do that , but it is possible that it's actually leaking out of line and you're just seeing it dribbled down because like , for it to leak from the seam in the gas tank .
I , again , I didn't go really thorough .
I looked at it .
I put a bucket and kept it outside for the moment .
I couldn't have , couldn't have gas hues in the basement makes sense .
A lot of you guys have been kind of wondering why I haven't been driving the S 15 much or why I haven't been drifting it , believe it or not .
We're pretty sure right now this car is a very small crack in the head .
We had some cooling issues .
If you guys remember us overheating on grid at , I think it was F D ST Louis .
Um Obviously , it can still run and drive , but I don't want to tear it down until after the open house because I want to have this car running and everything for the open house , but the oil does get a little bit milky .
So , um I just , you know , this obviously is something special to where I felt comfortable risking it , taking it out and obviously keeping an eye on the coolant temps and everything .
Um , but I haven't been drifting it or really like abusing it because I want to obviously keep it intact .
So , yeah , we had a , we had a blown head gasket there .
It did feel a little sluggish .
I noticed the head gasket .
I was noticing somewhere , I don't know , 60 to 90 .
It felt a little sluggish .
So right now this car how we drove , it probably made around 720 horsepower room .
Yeah , goodbye .
But usually , well , not usually we , we have had this car turned up to 1000 so that's like the slow mode right now .
Oh my God .
But um the Achilles 12 threes are very , very grippy , probably grippy you can get for those uh 2 50 fives .
But I mean , that car making that much power and being as lazy as it is really , really needs like a three oh five or like a 3 15 or like a proper rag tire to hook .
This is the car that I really wanted to give you a ride and come look at this .
You think about that ?
Some heart rod stuff ?
So , are these the actual exhaust here ?
Oh my God .
So these are the exhaust and then once it gets to a certain threshold of boost , these will open up and it'll spit flames out of all four this , believe it or not , dad .
So this is pretty cool .
This is a water to air intercooler .
So there's an ice tank in the back and it basically freezes this over .
So we don't have that thing in the front like your car that cools the air , it's inside of this and it cools it with ice water so we can simplify this piping .
So rather than having this piping or just simple ice .
So instead of having to have this piping go down and up through here , let's just start there .
All right .
So overall how was your L V warehouse experience ?
The the car ride or the ?
Well , obviously the warehouse I did pretty good here today .
You went shopping or hat and sunglasses that looked like a cool dude .
Um But the ride itself and I don't know what I was riding in with a eight point harness seat belt that I had to wear something like that .
But I'm glad I didn't go in the car that shoots the flames up on the windshield .
That would have been more fun .
We'll save that for next time .
Maybe if you're still here , I know you might have to go and snow plow .
But uh yeah .
So anyway , I hope you guys enjoyed this video .
It's always fun to give my dad rides and stuff .
