This story starts as a 7 year old boy with an obsession for racing games. Gran Turismo 2 was my favourite game and inside it laid my now dream car. R34 GTR V-Spec, and the colour was none other than Bayside Blue. Thus started a rather unhealthy obsession with a car that is my JDM idol. No moment will compare to when you 1st set eyes on one, and your heart temporarily skips a beat. THAT is what your dream car is capable of. A moment that will go unmatched until I have the opportunity to drive one everyday, to have the ever awesome opportunity to drive it full tilt whenever possible. Seemingly out of reach… But one day. I will own you.

MY ULTIMATE JDM RIDE: THE NISSAN SKYLINE R32 GT-R

MYJDMRIDE_1

Back in 2013 I visited Japan for the first time. Since I was all into JDM (especially R32 GT-Rs) & Initial D I looked up for a special adventure. Luckily I saw a post from Adam on 7Tune about Fun2Drive which is a car-rent company in Hakone, Mt. Fuji. The special thing about them is that they rent out true JDM-machines e.g. S2000, AE86, RX7 FD and this very beautiful R32 GT-R V-specII. I contacted them and got a special arrangement: a 4h long guided tour through the touges of Hakone. The very special moment of this trip was this stop at the uphill-start point from the Hakone touge of the race from Initial D S5 E5/E6 (RX7 FD vs Supra). We visited the wooden cabines where Project D slept in the anime and then we raced the whole uphill touge. This was my last touge in this car and I still remember this moment, the road, the feel of the car.. This was one of the most memorable moments in my life, this GT-R captured my heart – forever. One day I will own one of these.. one day..

There are thousands of cars on the road, but have you ever thought of which exhaust note you like the best? Well now you can listen to over 70 exhaust notes in one video. Turn your speakers up to hear all the engine noises from all the supercars, sports cars and raodsters you can think of in one video. Read more

Due to a very good friend, I got a tip off that the HKS Group A R32 would be stopping by his workplace on its way to a show in Europe. The car was headed off across the channel into France the following morning so unfortunately it didn’t come off the trailer, but I still got a good look around this legend.

I just recieved notification that it has arrived here in the states and I’m going to be having some work done before I pick it up. I’m going with a RB30 block with a Nitto 3.2 stroker kit and it will be paired with a stage 3 head with fully built internals and race ported/polished. I’m thinking about putting the Borg Warner 9180 in it. I’m not entirely certain of the turbo choice just yet. I’m anxious to get everything done so I can finally enjoy driving a skyline again.

My Ultimate JDM Ride Was such a hard choice

Well growing up in a place that has a lot of jDM influence but not very much of it being good. so many cars around my town are slammed or civics that are hacked into pieces with rusted body parts and stretched tires.

Motorsport has always appealed to me and Japanese cars seemed an affordable way for me to have fun and i have always loved the lines and style of the JDM cars. As a boy i grew up idolizing the Toyota Supra and it is such magnificent car i was tempted to choose that but lately (last year or so) I’ve been getting into mountain driving considering the rocky mountains are in my backyard. So naturally i started looking up videos and stumbled upon hot versions tough series. I WAS CAPTURED! Seeing tsucheya san haul through the corners just captured me so the ae86 was on the list for sure.

 

And being the tough monster the RE Amemiya rx7 was a top contendor, But in the end hondas have always been a passion of mine i love the small cars matched with high revving engines and seeing the spoon s2000 and js racing s2000 take turns at top speeds with major praise from tsucheya san i had to go with this!and that is why i chose the s2000 from spoon sports. hopefully some day i can build an s2000 JDM cars are my passion and i have learned so much these last few researching them!

 

 

If you’ve made it this far Thank you for your time and race on!

My ultimate JDM ride is the one I own…

I love my stagea. I’ve dreamed of having one and living in Japan for the last ten years. I’ve lived here for a year now, one I spent saving and scraping together my yen in order to make my dream come true. And here it is – the juice has indeed been worth the squeeze.
