Cars and Video games. I write about them, I take pictures of them, I film them. I like to dream, right between my sound machine.
@speedhunters_dino @majik16106 Interesting. I think whatever was going on at Okayama was more mechanical but it may have been suspension stuff. I dont think it was tires heating though.. as it was raining at Okayama that day. lol. Maybe they are just having some trouble getting the suspension dialed in all together.

@wheatgod Yah Tarzan had it on the track for a few laps at Okayama, it came in, went back out for a lap, then parked. Maybe it was just doing shakedown stuff. Not sure. It spent a lot of time on the jackstands. It and the Kakimoto NSX were side by side in the garages. Was really awesome to see them side by side.

@MartinHsson @Simply P 9 bar is 130psi. The S4 engine was tested in lab once for strength at up to 5 bar (70ish psi) to make around 1000hp but in race trim the S4 saw 2.2bar or 32psi.

@MPistol I know you made this post awhile ago. But consider that you are speaking about the home of Audi. Sure they have access to a bit more stuff in Europe where it was a stronger market for the car.. but also this is a Gatebil car. So its a "shining" example of a build. There are not cars like this driving all over Europe. Its rare, in the world, period. Consider also the flipside. I know some guys who race American Iron in Europe and they always complain that we have the best muscle car stuff. Happens here in Japan too. They always look to Hot Rod and what we do in the states for newest and coolest in muscle car builds. The great thing about car culture is its like cooking.. each area has a specialty and they tend to do it "best". Everyonce in awhile a foreigner nails it and thats pretty special. Japan has some decent cheeseburgers.. but if I want a real one.. i go home to Georgia.. and vice versa. The US has some pretty cool import builds.. supras and such.. but if I want the "best of the best" I go to Japan.

Rally month... posts by me incoming! Can't wait!
I know I pick my spots to post but you guys have really done a number with the recent Audi coverage. It's fantastic. Not the most popular platform in the US and almost impossible to find here in Japan. Seeing this one and the white race car a few weeks ago.. feels like being punched in the stomach. Its awesome and knowing how difficult it is to find and build one where I live.. it hurts. I love it though.. great work.

I only come out of hiding for Super Gt coverage and the Gt300 BRZ. well thats not true.. but close. I got some great pictures of it at Suzuka earlier this year. I love this years cars. Thanks for the pit pictures.. the pass was too much at the time for me. At suzuka they had this cool little display out front with a "fake" BRZ car and the engine on a stand out in front. Really cool.

HAHAH. A Sera! That car gets absolutely no coverage and is completely 90s awesome. I'm not sure too many people stateside have heard of it. When I told my friends back home I had seen one they all had no idea what i was talking about.. and they are serious car people.

@roryfjohnston In regards to people coming over here to see cars. I would say to not be afraid to ask questions on Speedhunters. Because of a simple back and forth with the man above, we have become friends. and he helped me a ton when I first moved here to find the cool local stuff. Japan is wonderful. I need to start carrying my camera everywhere. Most of the time the phone just isn't cutting it.
I would say buick grand national, but instead Ill go Buick Turbo regal. Same car, less black.

Cant wait to get a closer look at this badboy and the new Lexus on Sunday!
@Rico05 You don't even have to go that far back. Remember when Audi said they wanted to try to compete at Le Mans with a diesel?
@Jonathan Moore WOOOOP !! THAT'S customer service! Pantera and Bt52 added. My Hero.Last time Dino came through for me I threatened to hug him a lot... i think it freaked him out so Ill back it down a notch this time. I owe you a drink!
