Awhile back, if I recall correctly the day I was leaving Japan, I messaged Kaz to see if he was around the shop; I had 30 or so minutes to spare and was in the neighborhood.  Things generally get pretty quiet throughout the summer in the realm of time attack, and I was curious to see if Unlimited Works had anything cooking for this coming season.

My inclinations were correct, as Kaz led me back to their tiny engine room where Nabeshima-san was working on a new engine for the shop’s EVO 9.  I was told not to give specifics, but the build will have more power than the previous setup, as well as a more efficient powerband.

NDF_5165-EditThis special plate to block the trunk mounted fuel system is kind of neat.  Sato was pretty stoked about it.

NDF_5127-EditI know things have been pretty slow on here lately, I’ll explain why a bit later.  Looking forward to this next attack season.
