Datsun 520 for me

It's funny, when Saito debuted his 1000hp Chaser in D1 there wasn't half as big a power war as there has been in FD these past few years. I guess it's just the way things are done in the respective countries. In Japan the emphasis seems to be on mastering car control, whereas in the US the attitude seems to be 'I can't compete with him unless my car is on a par'. Which means everyone is now chasing ridiculous power figures because they feel like they'll get thrashed with a lower power car. 

In reality, the only reason people get beaten by high power cars is the initial drag race kills any chance of a decent chase run. Therefore, I think the answer to capping power levels is to stop the drag racing aspect of the sport that I dislike so much.

There's plenty of good fabrication work in this car but why does he still use a dash dodger rollcage? Seems to be a lack of attention to detail.
