Was gonna post this up too.

Gotta be a pro job. Even to start that thing you've gotta be clued up. And the security have somehow 'missed' it too!

Spotted that evening on the M25.



I'll guess that it'll either be burnt out or in a garage somewhere stripped of all its parts.

No one would keep hold of it and it'll be completely impossible to sell.

Was on preludeuk last night about it being stolen. General consensus is it's being shipped abroad as all the parts are specially made as it's a 2007 scooby with a supra 1jz engine so would be too easy spotting parts for sale!

Completely shocked that something like this could happen at a show. The guy who drifts it hasn't had the best of luck with it either, IIRC just got it running nicely and some twat nicks it...

Looks and sounds so nice in that video, I'm a bit of a fan of this car and IMO it doesn't deserve to spend it's life in the hands of complete scumbags.

Santa Pod does loads of drift events including DWYB days, this weekend though they were part of the entertainment schedule for performance vauxhall show Razz

Driftworks thread seems to have some interesting progress, numerous sightings back up towards Milton Keynes!

Found around 2:30 AM Tonight, in reading. Partialy stripped just missing a few stickers & the spoiler.

Massive coming together of the community on the Driftworks forum was immense!

Would never have been found if it wasn't for the huuuge word-spreading on facebook!

And half of the drifting community out looking for it!

Just awesome that it's been found tbh - some tense stuff last night! Seems they've got most of the parts too.

I didnt expect that car to be seen again! Very lucky to get it back with very little parts gone missing. Just hope they get the people who took it! [strike]

With the police involved, a load of people that they work close with having their time wasted, and 4 complete tools in custody? Dont think so somehow, bloody conspiracy theorists!

There no way in hell it was a publicity stunt.

People saying that are total nobs if you ask me.

Nobody is that desperate for publicity, i dont really think JapSpeed need it either tbh!

i dont care if it was publicity but how a race car was started on a car stand with about 11 members of staff and then driven away is beyond me, especially as they apprently didnt realise for 2-3hours later. its all a bit odd tbh

Certainly wouldn't claim it to be a publicity stunt, but it is abit odd how a car of such value (and at Santa Pod!) was taken so easily.

Don't tell me that Very Happy

I had great fun fitting a Japspeed 52mm ally rad that apparently was OEM fit to my lude. All I had to do was grind off half the bottom rad mounts, grind half the top rad mount off, cut both fan shrouds up to miss the engine mount/alternator, secure the drain plug before fitting as their is no room due to front frame to insert/remove plug once fitted, secure the fans with cable ties through the rad due to having to cut the shrouds off...oh yeah and remove the bonnet stand as the bonnet wouldn't shut when it was left in the original position on top of the rad!! Rolling Eyes Not bad for an OEM fit rad...they then had the cheek when I mailed to complain that I shouldn't have fitted it as it could be the wrong rad, even though it was labelled as a 92-96 prelude...oh yeah and was the right radiator!! Well they then ignored my next email to! What a great company! Shocked
