Close-Up: Craft Company Time Attack FD

.

Craft Company is, among other things, just plain awesome.  Based out of Amagasaki, a city in an industrial area in the Hyogo prefecture, Craft Company toils away under the hoods of many cars.  Included in that lineup is their CCFD35 seen here – a car heavily partnered with FEED.  CC is a regular at these events, but came to Tsukuba last weekend specifically to take part in the ‘Advan Fastest Amateur Tournament’.  There were a ton of impressive cars at this event, most of them are regular time attackers we all know and love.  Despite the stiff competition though, the CCFD35 managed a 6th place time of 57.658 around the circuit.  To give you something to compare it to, Suzuki-san’s Scorch S15 posted a blistering 54.162 second lap time.  Click past the break to check out more pics of the CC built RX7.

The FEEDS AFFLUX front end combination alludes to how aggressively this FD is tuned.  A glance upward reveals a ducted AFFLUX headlight aero intake to help keep engine temps as low as possible; function and form.

The heavily tuned 13B sits inside of a very clean, stitch welded bay.  A carbon FEED manifold covers adds a little flare to the awkward looking rotary engine.  The hood is propped up with a Craft Company titanium hood prop – wicked.

With the sparkly white Advan RGII’s off the car, we can get a good glimpse at the ducted SET Racing brake setup.  I would imagine stopping is not a problem for this car.  I love how mangled the Advan rubber is in this shot.

An overall impressive build – just what we expect from Japan’s time attack community.  Hope you enjoyed the shots.  Look forward to more from this Hot Version live shooting courtesy of our friend JDM Clips!
