Huge respect to the S30 Fairlady Racing team! I love the concept of not going all out with carbon and representing the old school racing style! I have a maybe not so polite question to ask now... Despite having an RB Series Motor with 2.5l displacement, Single Turbo setup with a huge GT35 Ballbearing unit, the engine should theoretically be able to push more than the 430 at the wheels, am i right? Is there a reason, for example maybe for controlability for on track, that they didn't go higher on hp? please correct me if I'm wrong

@Taryn Croucher  I understand you. I would welcome the fact of having more diversity in the scene with more women modifying and racing cars. And honestly there is need for petrolhead women who understand us boys :) The problem here is, that all that counts here is to be a part of the society and be just like everybody else. So when a girl shows up with a tuned car everybody will look at her in a strange way. I ask the girls of today to be more "bosozoku", to go against the mainstream girly lifestyle and explore new things! But this is only wish-thinking, everybody knows reality looks diffrent.. by the way i love that chick with the SilEighty and damn the girl with the yellow LanEvo is bad....... She's a bad girl! And i like that!

@speedhunters_dino @Gianluca FairladyZ  I agree with you and we heard of this in europe too. But i say, let's keep in mind that this is a new developed engine, the most powerful stock 2.0l turbocharged 4 banger in the world. New things often come with some children's disease. I think we should give MB some credit to sort it out, and well.. As long as it happens within the warranty time, who cares.

I can say that i am lucky to have driven one A45 AMG with the performance exhaust system.. I just say: Let's go full throttle, shift, and then "BaNg, bAnG, BAng, BaAaNg...!!!!" That car is so fun! I feel that when you sit in a sporty JDM car you feel their philosophy, that the car is made for sports, made for the track.. But when you sit in the A45 AMG, it feels like you can do everything with this car!

I am not very familiar with drag racing, but with such large amounts of power, insn't there needed to stiffen the chassis with some sort or roll cage or security cell like in touring cars? Anyway great car!

I don't think the car has been developed too early or things like this.. It's a very interesting car, without a doubt very powerful and fast, equally beautiful and fascinating! We need more cars like these. But wouldn't it be nicer if the whole humanity could benefit of such a beautiful car and not only one rich guy who can buy and do whatever he wants???? :) by the way the wheels are Maserati Birdcage style, that's the only thing that I don't like about the car...

Looks like a fearsome machine! Nice bodywork and engine swap. I worked on a Twin Turbo Z33 which was filled with EVANS, but never had the chance of pushing it to the maximum to evaluate the benefits of it. What's the main caracteristic of EVANS? Is the temperature more stable or does it simply not go so high in temp?


Thanks and nice article!

@speedhunters_dino Thanks for this nice coverage Dino. Let me ask you a question. Since there is so much competition between the tuners, how can Nismo be still in the game? We all know that Nismo parts are really high priced for the Skyline scene. Does it make sense for Nismo to continue as seller of aftermarket parts or should they limit their self as a constructor of complete cars ( Nismo GT-R, Nismo Z's, etc) Thanks.

Ciao ragazzi. vivo in svizzera e vi capisco totalmente. anche noi abbiamo le regolazioni troppo strette e veramente ci rendono la vita difficile per importare una macchina giapponese oppure modificarla. forse l'unica cosa (aver letto questo articolo adesso) e che abbiamo documenti di omologazione, oppure possiamo creare un documento di omologazione (per cherchioni, supsensioni, marmitte) per girare legale su strada! Pero in confronto alla germania o ad altri paesi europei e proprio una rottura di scatole. Sono italiano, ho anche il passaporto, pero sono nato e cresciuto in svizzera. Pero vedere ed ascoltare il telegiornale co tutti sti casini che creano questi politici mi fa veramente pena! spero che l'italia si potra riprendere di questa crisi. Sempre in speranza che potra rendere la vita piu facile a tutti, sia la gente normale ed anche gli "petrolheads". Forza ragazzi tenete duri! E vivete la vostra passione, sia legale o illegale, perche alla fine e quello che rende felice! live your dreams! Everything else is a waste of time! Saluti, Gianluca

@JDM_Luca  so you mean like there are cars that are predestinated to tune/modify and some not?

This is a good question... It takes actually some time to get a good answer. There is a said that tells "the highest level in originality can be obtained by not modifing the car at all"..But there are a lot of tuners that still modify Ferrari's...  I have big respect for the engineers that made these cars, so I would tend to leave them as they are. I'm sorry to say this but in the end it's all a question of money and flavours..  From my expierience, where a lot of money is, often logical thinking and technical limits do not really work together hand in hand.. Some modify super cars to go with time, because not every Supercar is = Supercar... This means some improve the brake system or update the suspension. On the other hand they just want to have a Unique car, their own way and style...


to make it short, if I had a Ferrari ( i hope so one day......F40 in my dreams...... ) the only mod would be TUBI STYLE :) the rest leave it like it is! AMEN!
