Kansai All Star

So sadly before Meihan, of all the parts I have been snagging, I was only able to get the new clutch/flywheel in. The light flywheel made a decent change in the revs, and the Peak Performance trans mount made for a nice solid feel. I almost didn’t go because I’m still all stock power…but I figured the more I drive it stock the better it will feel when I have some power. Anyways, on with the video yah?

In the morning I drove all 3 heats before lunch in the 15…and all I did was struggle. While the new lighter flywheel helped the feel of the engine somewhat the 235/40-18 is still a tad large for stock power. The e-brake also doesn’t like to do it’s job much. But more than all those excuses, I just still am not comfortable with rhd at all. I thought I was doing decent with it, until Takatori let me use his 240 for the Kansai All Star event qualifications. After about 2 laps I felt at home again and actually had confidence in my driving and car placement. I guess a few of my runs was decent enough to earn me 12th out of 30 or so cars and and invite to next months Kansai All Stars event. I actually could care less about that, bechdse more than anything the 2 heats I ran lhd I had so much more fun than I have had in almost a year of driving the S15. S15 for sale. 4 serious. I want lhd so bad it hurts.

Ship your NB over quick-like and show them how crazy white boys from bufu get down. Serious though, very very good driving in those vids regardless.

You looked like you were doing okay with it, but def stronger in the S13. Just keep at it man, the whole RHD thing takes a while to get used to.
