TEAM S CLUB is in the house! They may be veterans in the New Zealand drift scene but they still know how to party 4AGE style…
Well kind of. Behold Brendan’s 18A triple rotor hatch that sounds like angel fart after a big bowl of spicy bhut Jolokia chili peppers.
Tarran chases Brendan with all 135KW of his 4AGTE into turn one of this tight Taupo circuit
and hangs in there through the sweep.
The day got better and better for the cars with a bit of power as the track dried, some smoke even appeared. Team S Club has been organising and running track days for what seems like forever now and it shows in their consistency. It’s worth mentioning that Brendan is the man to see in regards to conversions too, he builds and modifies pretty much everything you see on his cars and runs an fabrication operation for anything you may need. Check out some of his stuff here: Convert Ltd.

I’ve always been a big fan of Kris’s 4AGE KP Starlet and was pretty sad to hear that it was parted out and sold but in the wake an incredibly clean 4AGTE AE85 has been built. Whilst the loud induction from the quads was always a pleasure to listen to in the KP, you can’t argue with turbo power to get you around NZ’s big tracks and that it does.
To see more of Kris’s Corolla build including the KP, check out his blog here. I could list all that has been done to it but I recommend checking it out for yourself. All the fabrication work has been done by himself and it all looks very factory and professional, tip of the hat Kris. Doing an amazing job at keeping a car crisp is cool but babying it at the track is just boring and it’s super good to see he’s not afraid to get into it, dirt dropping it into the sweeping last corner.
It usually has a boss set of Work Equip 03s all round but recently it has received a shiny set of August Feroce which look awesome, even better in the flesh I think. Good to see you out there Kris, hope you enjoy the photos and I thoroughly look forward to seeing what you do to this car in the future.
