Car stuck in the shop? Wanna race but nothing to race in? We can help.

I know what it’s like.. you have that vision of your perfect S13 in your mind, what parts it should have, what rims, what offset and ride height, what aero package, what paintwork..

S13 project car life

You collect the parts for months and months, your better half isn’t impressed your house or apartment is filling up with boxes of car parts but it’s okay – your nearly there.


You save and save to get the cash together to pay a well reputed shop to put it together for you (if you don’t have the space, tools or skills) but oh no – some boring component broke! Your stuck.

Your going to have to save up to fix this broken component and the whole project has to go on hold until you can fix it.

This is a low point that you almost certainly will run into when building up an S13.

Patience and resilience is key

It’s these times that you have to be resilient and patient and focus on the long term vision of your car.

Try these games

When I am in this position I find it helps to mess around with computer games. Preferably drifting games.

So how about I share with you some free online games to keep your mind focused on the big picture? Our friends at have got you covered: free drifting games.

Best drifting game?

Our favourite drifting game is Drift Hunters. Pick your favourite car from some all time automotive icons and hit the track or the street.

Hang in there and your perfect vision will become a reality

Everybody who undergoes a project like yours will have experienced this during their journey with the car.

Chances are they will have experienced this several times.

But at the end of the day if you keep pushing through it will be worth it.

Good luck!

When you get to a point that you are happy with your build, please share it with us. I would love to see it.
