Mean and Green

One of the few Soarers (JZZ30) that compete in the D1GP, this particular example belongs to Ryoji Jinushi-san. It features a bright green paintjob and a BN Sports bodykit with a massive Koguchi power GT spoiler.

The doors are made of FRP and the windows have been replaced by acrylic ones.

Nob’s Altezza During Tokyo Drift

There’s the money shot, the canards in the rear have a striking resemblance with the DTM cars featured on Speedhunters

HKS YOKOMO Racing performer IS220-Z

Nobuteru had is first outing with this car during the second round of the D1GP. For it’s first outing it did really great against all the others that didn’t had a break and could maintain there skill. In the end he finished 9th with this car.

1

Such a cool car. The MSR graphics and the gold Advan RS work very well together. Behind the wheels you can see the 6 pot Endless brakes for that much needed stopping power.

2

At first I didn’t realised there were two cars, bot these cars are both running the 3SGE Beams engine. The one with the stickers is there competition car and the other one is their test car. It is running

3

Fuel cell and an exta large fuel pump are needed to feed the 850cc injectors. The exhaust is an one off prototype made by HKS.

4

The man himself, thinking about his chances. Both car are running the Hypermax D suspension, this setup isn’t out yet for the public.

5

The competition car is called the IS220-Z. They also have an R version and that one is running an 2JZ with a stroker kit from HKS that increases its capacity to 3400cc. HKS doesn’t mentions it’s horsepower figures.

6

How’s this for an working space? These car are build with such a high standards, they are truly full fledged racing cars. Oofcourse HKS put all their electronic gadgets in this car like the CAMP2, F-con Pro and EVC system.

D1GP round 2 results

The D1GP has had it’s second round, a few new cars and interesting results. Round 2 was held at Fuji Speedway. This was also the first round where Nobuteru would make his retunr in his HKS altezza. He would finish 9th, that’s a really good performance for his first outing and against some stiff competition.

Here we have our number one, Yoshinori Koguchi

Daigo Saito finished second, really love this pic, did you noticed the intercooler piping behind the headlights?

And Tezuka finished third with his Bee*R R32

2

Ken Nomura is still my favorit allthough I really like his ‘old’ bodykit better. He finished 8th place

4

Tokita didn’t get passed qualifying, really love this car. Who would ever though we would see a Toyota Crwon enter the D1?

6

Not sure to whom this car belongs to but I just like the colour and the Wise Square bodykit.

HKS D1 Altezza shake down

After HKS and Nobuteru announced that they would return to the D1 they have been busy getting the car ready. Here are the first pictures of the car getting it’s shakedown.

1209773646

The Altezza is running a modified 3SGE engine with a 2.2 litre stroker engine with a GT2835 turbo. Not sure if the output of the car has been changed, the ‘older’ car managed a respectable 430ps.

1252773990

Getting the car sideways aint a problem according to these pictures 🙂

1266773709

The man himself, Nobuter Taniguchi, I still think he has the best nickname ever NOB, No One Better.

1263773859

New wing mirrors, and very large Advan RS rims. Also notice the cooling vent besided the towing hook. The turbo is mounted just beneath that vent.

HKS, Nobuteru Taniguchi
