Can someone please remove all that plastic crap under the bonnet and show us the engine? Or is it as ugly and untidy as a Renault bay from the eighties? Some modern cars these days are so fucked up they should just have a sticker on the bonnet ( or perhaps the doors) saying" No user serviceable parts inside" I myself am not offended by the sight of an engine in the flesh, but perhaps the young generation of car buyers develop eyesore and acne if they are exposed to an inlet manifold or god forbid a visible alloy head!  I remember how I used to SIT in the engine bay while changing the water pump and if I wanted I could even change the headlight bulb myself. From inside the same engine bay! Yes it is true. Back in the days you didnt have to remove the front wheel to change bulbs. And many cars actually used the same cheap and readily available halogen bulbs! I am so glad I managed to collect some good cars and some pretty engines before the Ncap ratings destroyed car design and the euro 3 emission rules made cars blip the throttle AFTER I get off the pedal to please the 3 cats and some nearly extinct frogs. Nice Golf by the way:-)

Nice stuff! Hope to see that rx7 at a time attack.se event this year. We need a more serious time attack organizer in Norway. Sweden is doing it right. I like what we do to cars  in Scandinavia. Not a stupid camber angle in sight:-)

Nice car, but that owner should have had it taken away from him fitting that kind of Wheel/tire combination to a performance car. Are you trying to impress 16 year old girls or improving your cars cornering speed?

The owner should have his front suspension geometry checked. I suspect the front camber is out.

I have to admit this is actually a N-style car I like. Today I feel very positive and open-minded despite my age.

Speedhunters should be more about homemade performance cars and grassroot race cars. Engine transplants, bergrennen, time attack,  hillclimbing, Group B, turbos, nitrous, superchargers, Kevlar, carbon, diffusors, and 10.000 rpm Fiats:-) . More Tech stuff would be appreciated. Inlet design, Helmholtz theory, fibreglass moulding, diffuser design, mapping, aerodynamics, suspension set ups. etc etc. The Lifestyle, Culture, Stance, N-style, Offset , Airride, shotobozohentaibazooka stuff should be toned down. Give me a Lucchini sports prototype feature or pay a visit to Guiseppe Volta! Dino? Going home any time soon?

I agree. Running engines without air filters are just plain stupid. This car is too low and should have a rear bumper.  Maybe I am getting old, but I just dont get some aspects of the Japanese car scene. Stretched tires..... Perhaps a rusty bonnet would top it off? Oh I forgot thats german bad taste and would spoil  the N-style.  Grumpy old man needs to lay down.

It turned out better than expected, but like everyone else says; the tc is ugly. To bad Fredric is stuck with the Scion FWD shopping trolley. He should have kept the supra forever:-). Not very likely Toyota would approve though... I think Papadakis have developed a fine engine and would love to see it power a more suitable car in 2015.
