I’ve been following Pulse Performance’s build on their mental engine for months now and we’ve been anxiously wondering if it was ever going to happen but no sooner had the video dropped that I eagerly clicked to find what I thought no one could find a practical application for… a 6 rotor engine, angrily brapping away like it was going to shake the ceiling from its mountings… Read more

It’s around noon on a cold day in January, I’m standing in the lobby of my hotel at the pay phone punching in the number that my girlfriend is reading to me from the computer. The phone rings and I wonder if I’ll even get an answer as it’s only a been a few days since New Years and in Japan, most shops are usually closed. The phone keeps ringning but as I was about to give up hope, someone picks up. I reply awkwardly as I didn’t expect an answer. Read more

SHOP VISIT – The Autosport Company

2012 is kicking off and for me it is kicking off in a great way. This year I will finally get to build my own race car. After years of shooting the coolest cars behind the armco, I now have the opportunity to go racing myself. They say building the car already is half the fun and, as I was looking for parts to prepare my Miata, it showed. The fun has only just began!!!
While shooting for another upcoming report for 7TUNE and in need for some race parts, I went to visit The Autosport Company Read more

It seems as if everyone in the foreign media in Japan is jumping on the RWB bandwagon of late and we are unashamedly too happy to take the drivers seat in bringing you these awesome creations; the two latest cars to grace the 7Tune site coming courtesy of Yuji Pogi and Takashi Ishii. When I visited Nakai san at RWB a few weeks ago, Ishii san was there with the brilliant red 964. After a spirited chat that afternoon, we decided to meet up in Yokohama at a later date to give the car the appropriate 7Tune treatment… Read more

EVENT – 2011 IDLERS 12 HOUR ENDURO: THE GRID


Before I said farewell to the RWB workshop in Chiba earlier this month, Nakai san handed me a little yellow ticket that had some special writing on it: “Credential Pass”. The 12 hour endurance race turned out to be an unforgettable experience. The weather was mercilessly hot but that didn’t stop nearly 100 cars and hundreds of spectators, competitors and supporters alike from heading out to the Motegi Twin Ring circuit for the 9th annual round of the Idlers Games 12 hour Endurance race. Let’s take a look around the grid before getting stuck into the action on the track later that morning… Read more

TUNERS – IT’S A RAUH WORLD: PART 2


In the last post we were looking at Nakai sans rare E60 daily. I’m sure his kids LOVE getting taken to school in RWB monsters but wives aren’t usually so accommodating so a compromise was obviously needed! For Part 2, we’re going to have another look around the outside of the workshop simply because it was bursting at the seams with Porsche goodness and then we’ll venture inside the Man Cave, have a good look around and take a long look at a few RWB creations that are either ready to go or on their way… Read more

Rauh WELT Begriff. RWB. Any of you vaguely familiar with the German language could easily make sense of Akira Nakai’s catchphrase for what has undoubtedly become one of the hottest Japanese workshop names circulating the net at the moment. 7Tune decided to pay Nakai san a visit a few days ago for what was definitely an eye opening experience… Read more
