Close-Up: GReddy Nissan 35RX

.

Bear with me on this post; there’s a possibility that I could still be a little intoxicated.  I’ll keep the grammar in check as best as I can.  It seems like Nissan has lost the battle in trying to keep the R35 GTR a machine that needs no modification.  In the hands of the Japanese elite tuners, nothing is sacred.  Take, for example, the GReddy 35RX; a machine so deconstructed, that it retains little to no trace of the original form.  I want to show you something pretty amazing – so click past the break.

Encounter: COCKPIT T Four built Nissan S15

.

COCKPIT is a huge company known for more than just aftermarket builds.  This particular S15 was built by the COCKPIT shop in Tatebayashi, located in the Gunma prefecture of Japan.  Any Initial D fans out there? Anyway, this shop is split up into a few ‘divisions’ for a lack of better terms.  Each of these divisions concentrate on one particular aspect of vehicle modification.  I had to kick off the TAS 2012 coverage with a little Encounter with this machine; there are so many things about it that I like that I had to highlight it outside of the regular coverage.  Click past the break for more.  Let’s go!
