TPchecker & T&E – D1 Earth Project

Just got some more info on the BMW that will be driven by Takahiro Ueno in this year D1GP season. His new main sponsor will be TP Checker (they also sponsor the Impul GT-R in SuperGT) together they have started the D1 Earth Project 2009. TP Checker specialises in tire pressure measurements systems, as we all know the tire pressure on a full blown drift car is very important.

As I have mentioned before the car will be powered by a 2JZ-GTE but with an increased displacement of 3100cc. Other components include a HKS T51R turbo, HKS V-Cam Pro, HKS 1000cc injectors, HKS intercooler and radiator. The pistons, and connecting rods have also been replaced in favor of stronger HKS items. On the exhaust side of things we can find a HKS manifold and a Sui:Vax muffler ( we all know what Sui:Vax is right?). The transmission will be a six speed sequential with an ORC clutch

When looking at the exterior we all noticed a new widebody kit made by the Vertice department of T&E including the frontbumper, front fenders, sidesteps, rear fenders and rear bumper. The side mirrors are made by Craft Square and the carbon spoiler is made by Sard.

In the wheels department we can find the new Rays G2 wheels and they measure 19″ x 9.5j with an offset of +20 both in the front and in the rear. The tires are from Advan and measure 255/30/19 in the front and 265/30/19 in the rear. I’m not sure about the suspension but I’ve heard it is running a JIC system.

The interior is enhanced via two Bride Zeta III seats, Vertex 90mm steering wheels, custom carbon dashboard and a whole host of other custom parts.

The S14 that I showed you earlier with the same livery as this BMW will be used as a demo car and will be driven on numerous events throughout the year.

Did i mention that this BMW won second place in the best of show category ‘tuning’ during the Tokyo Auto Salon



3D Design E92 M3

When the Ericcson M3 was a bit too much for you than maybe this 3D Design has a better answer. They have a very subtle approach and only offer a new carbon frontlip and a carbon insert that surrounds the exhausts.

As you can see there hasn’t been much of a change in the back really except for the carbon diffusor. I know that alot of people like it that way, why change something when it allready looks good.

Don’t you just love JDM wheels on Euro cars, 3D Design has used black Volk Te37 on this demo car. I think it looks just right and goes pretty well with the white car. The carbon frontlip makes the car just look that bit better.

Ericsson M480 Concept BMW M3

Damn this thing looks so good. First spotted by my blogging friend Auto Otaku during the Amuse Time Attack day at Tsukuba. Now it is being featured at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Ericsson is a sub division of Powerhouse Amuse that focuses on European build cars. This is their first try with a BMW M3 E92. And it sure leaves a lasting impression. They have alot of carbon goodies like the all carbon trunk and hood. Together with the BBS rims and the bodykit this car is a winner.
