Encounter: ディサイドGTR33

I stumbled across this GTR33 built by Decide226 behind Suzuka’s pits.  The notable shop, that’s based in Fukuoka, raised to fame years ago in Japan’s drag racing circuit.  The RH9 accredited garage specialized in tuning high power, 400m focused builds.  Concurrently they also prepped a range of cars for circuit racing; everything from GTR’s to EG6 Civics.  This GTR is a great example of the street inspired builds the shop has become famous for.

Event: Tokyo Auto Salon 2011 – RH9

Describing RH9 in one word would be easy; Power.  The Record Holder 9 club is exclusive to those cars capable of running 9’s in the quarter mile, the 1320, 0-400m; whatever you wanna call it, these things can do it fast.  Once confined only to GT-R’s, it seems like they’ve expanded to other platforms as well; like the almighty Garage G Force X above.  When you think of Japanese tuning, you’ll probably think of a few companies that take part in this club; and you’ll see some of their creations here.  It’s not uncommon to see RH9 badged parts created by these companies as well.  When I picked through these, I realized a lot were on the CF card that had failed on me.  As a result I’m missing some (unhappy face).  There are a few other sites though that have coverage of the RH9 too, so all is well.  Enjoy.
