ETS Drift Ute – The New Cradle

I took a drive monday night up to see Liam at Riverside Racing, he cut me some tube so i could get started on my new cradle, I’ve been looking at the factory S15 one for a long time and was sick of the sight of it, so heres how the new one looks.

Its all just tacked together and now i have to do a big expensive order of rod ends to start on the chromo arms.

Im really happy with the look of the rear end, no ugly pressed and MIG welded Nissan sheet metal

  3. God I hope you never crash this thing! What system do you have in place if you have to re build anything? Just pictures, tech drawings, measurements? Amazing work as usual!

  6. Wow Nigel, your fabrication skills are truly awesome and what you have created is pure art. Have you seen the Team Fernandez time attack FG falcon ute build? Although it is no where near as custom as this it reminded me a lot of your hilux. Keen to see this thing up close again at WTAC this year 🙂
