Okay.. We admit that we’re late again to publish this article up on the web blog. It’s almost a month since our last expedition to Bukit Tinggi. We’re terribly sorry. As usual, we had no any other excuses from being late beside our daily routine that has really rip our life apart. Busy. One fucking word that has really turned our 24-7 life a living hell… If only we could quit our daily job and become full timer doing touge review and such. LOL. Anyway, here goes the report…

KANSEI Outside Expedictions #2 - Bukit Tinggi

Finally, Bukit Tinggi touge expeditions with ‘Touge For Friendship’ campaign has over between EPMC, GengTurbo along with KANSEI members (joined by Touge-R)! Yay! And as for the moment, we plan to take a rest for a while before continuing the expeditions to next destination. We can’t confirm the exact date yet but most definitely the next expeditions will not going to be in the coming few weeks as we need to look and check on the car first. Something need to be fix… 😀

After a long journey on Cameron Highlands and May 5th expedition to Bukit Tinggi, we guess it’s time to service our cars. Some of our cars has already suffered water pump break down, clutch pump break down and the worse part is, some of our members tires has started to wear off. Their Yokohama Parada Spec-II only left about 30% of tread wears. That mean they will need a new set of tires very soon before the next journey took place. Not to mentioned, brake fluids should be flush with a new set of DOT 4 or 5 and brake pads should be taking under consideration as well.

Yeah that’s the issue you have to play around when you wanted to get serious into touges. Every single inch of your car details and safety issue should be taking under consideration. Streering, gear ratio, tires, brakes and others should be taken care at an optimum level. Okay! Enough about those car shitty thingy… Let us tell you about the Bukit Tinggi expedition…

Toyota AE86 Trueno GT Apex

Dear readers, we need some help from you guys / girls… We have secured one complete engine of 4A-GEU 20 valve (Black top) through an old friends. The engine is now ready to show some potential either on circuit or on touge. After our long waiting, the engine is here. There’s only one thing that we’re lack off… A good chassis…

We are looking for a ROAD LEGAL old car which is Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno or Corolla Levin GT Apex hatchback model. No matter if it’s a ‘Zenki’ (models produced from 1983–1985) or a ‘Kouki’ (1986-1987). Preferably the right hander driver (Japanese / UK spec).

Anyone who are selling or know anyone else who are selling, please do let us know. We’re not looking for the modified one but solely looking for the stock condition one as we’ve planned to buid it up to our own spec. No matter if the body and chassis is rusted, We’ll take it. And no matter if there’s no engine anymore, We’ll take it as well… Please take note, we’re not looking for the chop one i.e the chassis has been chopped and then reassembled again as one piece. We’re looking for the solid piece one…

The price We’re willing to pay for is not more than Ringgit Malaysia 13,000. If you know anyone or you wanted to sell it less than that, then please contact us through our email at teamkansei@gmail.com. We’ll be paying you not more than Ringgit Malaysia 13k CASH after we’ve look at the car chassis. And if you know anyone or you might be able to ship the car for us here in Peninsular Malaysia from lets say.. Japan, Philiphines, Thailand, Sabah / Sarawak, We’ll work on the paper and documentation for you and we can discuss about the shipment thingy later.

As we’ve said earlier, we’ve already had the engine, just looking for the chassis. Buzz us soon and thanks for your time!
