Lost scans found, #3

Kuroi was a cool cat. I had dinner with him and a few others after TAS 2010 last year, just weeks before his fatal scooter accident. RB26 on 195/55-15 is super og!

Lost scans, found #2

Still love the FC. I still dream of building a certain black one one day….

Lost scans, found #1

Getting ready to wipe my work laptop clean, I found some old scans that I had taken at some point. I will start with some JZX110 goodness:

More shots from E-course

Yes, they are welding using jumper cables and a truck battery!

The Last Soukoukai

As some of you may have heard, I have decided to leave my current teaching position and in turn will also be leaving Japan. Amid all the craziness that is trying to tie up loose ends here, my friends threw a private event at Meihan’s E-course a few weeks back as a final send off. We had the entire track to ourselves and at only 20 or so cars, we had plenty of seat time. As always I was able to capture a bit of video:

As you can see, it is much like the more famous C-course on straight but overall a bit slower on the entry. I had A LOT of drive time this day and it was a great final send off for the car. No issues and no problems despite me driving it fairly hard at least a few times a month. Sad to see it go but sometimes you just have to move on right? It will be hard leaving all the great friends I have made via the car life here. That being said, I will be back to Japan now and then and you can bet I will be driving something, somewhere, somehow when I do visit. This isn’t the end of the blog either, so keep me on your bookmark list and/or reader and check back from time to time!

Non in-car video

Odd seeing the car driving from the outside! This was a really fun day:
