      I've seen pix of that from years ago. Did it even make it on the track? Haven't seen or heard anything about it. Internet forum talk is about all it mustered up right?

        I don't think it ever did.

          i recall reading it fist outing showed all kinds of handling issues. and since its been forgotten. Tho the fab is cool and the idea is all there, just over engineered on a super budget.

            Seeing the RB26 mounted like that is a helluva sight. Maintenance on that thing would be annoying as hell! Might as well remove the engine to change the spark plugs.

              30k and you can buy it.

              They fabbed up new suspension arms that are 20mm longer, because they had 30mm front fenders and 40mm rear over fenders. Sounds good, but you've gotta wonder what that does to the geometry, and how that works compared to using stock length arms with low offset wheels (like most ppl do). Also gotta wonder if they relocated the pickup point for the front LCA considering that they did some unknown amount of fab work in that area....couldn't find any pictures that were big enough to see.

              Defi rules for that stack style unit......consistently delivering on cool gauges!

              and Tein rules for OS Giken sequential and diff & tranny coolers. This thing is worthy of being called a race car. I'm sure the suspension issues are solvable.....

              But as with everything Tein, I always wonder about what they left out, like relocating suspension points, since they're already going all out. or actually putting some meat under the thing, i mean 550hp+ and widebody and you've got some 255 tires that you can fit by rolling the lip on your STOCK fender?

              Anyway I wish I could buy it dual EDFC would be pretty damn slick if it actually works right (ie with a Tein shock that is actually worthy)

                i thought i read 30mm larger custom LCAs by ikeya formula. I wonder what that does too...
