It’s endearing to see to see the regulars at Tsukuba Circuit continue to progress their chosen platforms year after year. Sometimes the off season produces massive transformations, but often times it’s the small changes over time that make the biggest impact.
Feature: Koyorad x NDF Street ISF V.9 – CVR Testing
One of the issues that was preventing us from going quicker in the ISF build (aside from my driving) were the soft spring rates of the KW V3 coilovers. Much of it had to do with the softer, more comfortable nature that is inherent in the V3, but we at least needed to try and alleviate some of the negative side effects of that on track.
Feature: Koyorad x NDF Street ISF V.6 – Exhaust Fix and BRP Test
Before we headed out to Buttonwillow Raceway for the Club Racer event back on the 25th, I needed to address the issue with the new iCode exhaust we installed on the ISF; specifically, how it was melting my rear bumper.
Encounter: UNLIMITED WORKS 栗坊号エボ・6
A couple shots of the Unlimited Works EVO at Tsukuba Circuit. Kurita-san piloted the EVO 6 around TC2000 in a staggering 57.247. Sub minute laps are no stranger to Japan’s fastest street EVO though. Check out more past the break.
Encounter: Tatsukuro-san’s TFR Blessed FD3S
No stranger to a variety of cars, S15, Altezza, JZX100, (even the FD, having owned one before this) just to name a few, Muraki Tatsuhiko has more experience than most when it comes to how different […]
Event: Motor Games 2014 – Scorched Fuji
ピットの端まで来るとUnder Suzukiさんの S15 BodykitをUpgradeなさったので、是非とも取材したかったのですが、Except Rear aeroeffectのみ写真OKとの事だから、RearはWTAC Australiaまで 秘密にしてとの事なので、Detailはありません。 Another draw of Motor Games was the World Time Attack Challenge Japan, which was a spin off of the famous WTAC Australia that’s coming up […]
Preview: Motor Games 2014 – Fuji Speedway
This past weekend marked the date for one of Japan’s largest motorsport festivals I think I’ve ever come across; not necessarily in size, but in overall variety. A large part of that had to […]
Event: Battle Evome – Tsukuba Final Showdown v.3
We pick up on circuit late morning in Tsukuba, where, lap by lap, the times are decreasing ever so slightly. By this time, many of the drivers have recorded personal bests or were well on […]
Event: Battle Evome – Tsukuba Final Showdown v.2
As the morning sun rose over Tsukuba, and the clock closed in on 9am, the lighthearted paddock conversations gave way to a sound that I’m not even clever enough to describe in words. The first […]
Event: Battle Evome – Tsukuba Final Showdown v.1
Battle Evome; the name itself invokes a sense of elitism and power. The event, held at Tsukuba Circuit just 4 times a year, attracts the fastest of the street and privateer time attack cars across […]
