Maybe, a few things I could think of are that could cause issues would be that the tunnel may have been opened too far for the transmission, but probably more difficult to confirm would be the chassis origin and whether it is eligible to run in rwd anyway. I think FormulaD requires the base car to be a production chassis/minimum homologated number not a specific motorsport base. On the rwd thing, to compare it to the Tc of Aasbo, the chassis is shared with an awd car so is eligible for a rwd conversion, like the odd Honda element that was around for a bit. I'm not aware of any factory awd focus' or whether the chassis is shared with an awd car to become eligible in the first place.

I much preferred the D/L/K S15 when it was green and ran one of haraguchi's 326 kits. I think all that has changed on it is a new kit and different body colour, but the accents are the same

@speedhunters_dino @Bullet92 yep, he runs a small shop near his house and occasionally holds drifting lessons for small groups

@johnygezony because the Honda motors can take the punishment, hi comp low boost arrangements have very little lag

@jay8393 @Aldarris correct, amandio was driving saito's old D1GP jzx100 chaser, not sure if it may have also been involved in the fire, and two other Indonesian drivers use his altezza and his old school d1/demo/drift muscle jzx100 fronted jzx90

@MilesHayler used to look much cooler with the flames that it had, but still a very cool car

@azmedaj I believe that the celica has been written off, which is why itakura drives imai's old car sort of on loan while imai drives his be charmant
@speedhunters_dino @apex_DNA @stylez nz MSC is probably still the best competition in Japan as far as talent and coolness meshing, plus it is the only drift comp with regular team drift

@Simply P because despite being the much better engine, it takes a little more effort initially to get power out of it and this will probably only ever be a show car so more jdm tyte fans will talk about a 2j than a 2a

@speedhunters_dino @777 also, the tin foil hat part of me thinks that no matter how well utsumi drove against suenaga, barring the obvious glaring error, and then kawabata, suenaga was going through to meet kawabata, and when he didn't the round was pretty much decided. "Because what better way to finish off the season than for the top driver to win the last round / two to go head to head for the championship"

Not sure how kawabata won the round, apparently not offering a chase run is seen as less of a deduction than a small error whilst close, see for yourselves
And good photo of kawabata completely straight behind amandio, it's nice to know d1 is still as corrupt as ever, as it looks to be the exact same thing that utsumi lost for
Lol "kaido racer spoiler," group c wing, very popular and much more well known though I suppose it's just not jdm enough

@Nick Contey i'd be more worried about the unshielded fuel and oil that isn't just in the cabin, but right next to the driver.

Expensive car, check,

SH mega-jdm-tyte hype, check.
What a truly unique offering from LB Works, again.

It wasn't banned, Group A was going down the toilet, so the powers that be in the ATCC switched to a set of rules that would be sustainable long term.

@Oliver @777 @JDMized all laps are done on stree1t legal semi-slick tyres, the big deal was he's a "privateer" chemist
1 month, 2 weeks ago on The Dust Settles At WTAC: </br> Tilton Reigns Supreme
@JDMized @777 the weights shouldn't be that different really especially this year as there were minimum weights brought in for each vehicle (Nemo effect).
I get that there are more and longer straights on EC, but that "should" help Suzuki as his car would be faster on those than the others, it has more power and one would hope less drag because it certainly doesn't have the downforce levels of the EVOs.
As I elluded to earlier, it is cool that it has the record and all, but, if no one else is trying for it, it's not such a big deal.
Wouldn't put a forty-something second lap past Tilton or Nemo, Suzuki's tsukuba sector times have apparently all been faster now than when he did his 52.x and he was 3 seconds off the pace here
