I've always liked the coupe better than the hatch, and the Levin front more than the Trueno one. So for me, this is the best of both worlds! Nice to see a simple, old school build like this sometimes. If I owned an AE85, this would be pretty damn close to what I'd do.

Very cool. I love seeing these real left field base cars. Nice to see it still has a Porsche engine as well, rather than an LSx or something.

Really enjoyed this article. It was a good touch having Andrew contribute, being able to offer inside/professional knowledge. It truly is a mental car. I really do hope Nemo gets to run again at full speed.

@Delta_s4 To be fair, the Super GT regs haven't exactly promoted mechanical diversity for a while, with the mandatory 3.4 V8s in GT500. Nor are they homologated in any way, they're essentially tube frame chassis'. I'll happily admit there is at least diversity in the number of cars themselves though.
Part of me will be disappointed to see the DTM merger go ahead, but another part of me thinks it could be a good thing. The GT500 class in particular has somewhat lost its relevance over the past few years, in my opinion. The fact that Honda was allowed to compete with a non-production car, or the fact that this years' championship winning car (okay, silhouette) stopped production three years ago just baffles me.

I absolutely love the Pit Crew front end, but I echo the comments that a lot of the other parts seem to have been thrown on purely because they're "hella JDM rare yo!!!111one!" rather than because they actually fit the style of the car.The fitment is also pretty ridiculous, even for a stance car. The fact it's a Miata, which is supposed to be a no nonsense fun handling car, just makes it even more of a shame. It's great to hear future plans include a nice ITB set up, but I can't help but think some of the cash spent on parts purely because they're super rare would have been better spent on mechanical mods.Overall, I really dig the Pit Crew front end, and I like the BBS' (if not their size and fitment), but overall I just don't think it really gels.Props to the guy for building it how he wants though, I suppose.

It's cool, but definitely a little overdone and "concept-y". Look at the dilution from the original Toyota 86 concept to the production car. It does look cool though, and it's at least nice to see another mainstream manufacturer latching onto the lightweight RWD concept after the success of the 86/FRS/BRZ.

@louisFCO For the most part I agree, but Aaron Paul is a FAR better actor than this movie deserves.

Nice to see a bit of Honda love, it's been a while! Even cooler because it's Australian. ;)

@wheatgod @Hotcakes Also, nice ad hominem. Always the sign of when someone runs out of actual arguments.

@wheatgod @Hotcakes And that's relevant how...? Regardless of what car you own, you still come across as an arrogant, ignorant, one-eyed asshole. Way to ignore the entire post and write something totally irrelevant. GG.
@wheatgod Jesus, you're kidding right? Maybe some people don't like over fenders because, wow, they just don't like over fenders? You claim everyone that hates on Japanese cars is a domestic/Euro fanboy, but you're the one hating on anything that ISN'T Japanese. Who's the real fanboy? Some of my favourite feature cars on this site have been Japanese, like the T&E S15, or the Evasive FR-S. But you'll just ignore that.I like all cars, regardless of where they're from. If this was a German tuning trend, I'd still dislike it. For what it's worth, I like over fenders. I do. I just dislike how lately they've been slapped on every car regardless of whether they actually "fit" the car or not. It ends up just like a caricature. None of this post matters anyway, because you'll just call me a troll and then carry on trolling yourself. You're either literally the world's stupidest person, or the best troll on this site.
I'll just forget the irony in you defending the LW/TRA Kyoto-style cars from that exact same criticism. Instead I'll just say well done: that wasn't hard was it?

Pretty much everyone on the LW GTR thread posted reasonable responses as to why they didn't like it. All you're doing is saying "oh my God another Studebaker". You're entitled to your opinion, but at least try to explain it.
You're kidding right? This is exactly what you were doing in the GTR thread. Apparently it was fine for you then, but now we're the hypocrites? Please. It's just a case of showing you what it's like on the other side.
Besides, you made clear through *multiple* posts that you don't like hot rods. Cool, you're more than welcome to that view. But we got it the first 5 times, now you're just doing it for a reaction. Trolling =/= reasoned, constructive criticism.
Would it be better if it had some super original JDM bolt on arches?
The fact you constantly call everyone else trolls and fanboys, despite you being the absolute definition of a troll and fanboy, says all I really need to know. Plus the fact you believe you have a right to an opinion, but everyone else should keep theirs to themselves.
I'm done arguing with a brick wall. Peace out.

@Seeking Perfection @Hotcakes @wheatgod
Don't get me wrong, I actually agree with a lot of the things JDMized says. It's just the WAY he says it that comes across a bit...confrontational haha.
The thing is, essentially your opinion is that other people shouldn't be allowed to have an opinion. Constructive criticism shouldn't be stifled. It should be allowed, even promoted. It's through constructive criticism that positive progress can be made.
There's actually been very little "negative for the sake of negative" JDMized-style posts in this thread. You're the one that's trolling and can't handle other people's viewpoints.
Way to be presumptuous. I like most cars, regardless of their origin. I actually own a Japanese car, and prefer Japanese cars for the most part. I have a problem with your post because it's indicative of the "everyone who doesn't like it is just jealous" attitude on here which is used to shut down any and all criticism.
You're the one who is bringing fanboys into it, when if anything, you come off as a fanboy more than anyone else in this thread. You are the troll who finds the need to provoke attention with the "Euro/domestic fanboy" angle. I agree some people do only comment on articles to "hate". But for the most part, the comments on this article have been either positive or CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. People are allowed to have different opinions, but you don't seem to get that.
Since you're clearly mad I ignored the other part of your post: I'm not really fussed enough by hot rods to have an opinion on them either way, and yes, I do think the 911 design is past it's use by date.
While I normally don't like form-oriented builds, I admit I can appreciate them when they're individual and done well.
But I can't stand this copy and paste approach. Literally three of the most recent LW builds are exactly the same - grey, bolt on arches, stance, done. The rest (like the M3) aren't that different either.
And unfortunately Liberty Walk aren't the only one to do it. BenSopra, TRA Kyoto and RWB are all the same, but they're given absolutely MASSIVE exposure on here. Sure, other builds and styles are shown, but (and maybe it's just me), it seems these particular companies are given more than their fair share. All aboard the hype train!
For what it's worth, I'm not sure if the "it's to get a reaction" angle taken with most of the Liberty Walk articles is necessarily a good one either. Attention seeking for attention's sake isn't something to be congratulated in my opinion.
I probably sound like a "hater", but I genuinely do enjoy 90% of the content on Speedhunters. Maybe I'm just having a bad day, and I've bottled up most of these opinions for a while. :p
