World Time Attack Team America - ARK Design's BNR32 Skyline GT-R Intro Part 2

by Eric Hsu

The team and I have been hard at work with ARK Design's BNR32 Skyline GT-R. You may remember this car as the old XS Engineering BNR32 GT-R, but that was the distant past. ARK Design now owns this car and it is being rebuilt from the ground up. Follow us as we convert this car from the glorified street car that it was to the world class Time Attack car that it will become. The team only has until June to have this car built, tested, and loaded into a shipping container for Sydney's 2012 World Time Attack Challenge with a limited budget and limited man power.


 

VIDEO: GReddy Racing FR-S - Behind the Build

Check out this behind the scenes video of Ken Gushi's new FR-S drift car! Eric Hsu (who makes a cameo appearance around the 2 and a half minute mark) will be doing a feature on this car very soon! If you won't be at Formula D Long Beach this weekend be sure to watch it streamed live here on MotoIQ!

Underneath the Skin of the Legendary CyberEVO

by Eric Hsu

Check out the CyberEVO the way nobody's covered it before. If you're an EVO owner, you can see how the Cyber team built this car and pretty much repeat what they did. There's nothing too drastic on this car and it's really just a combination and the total package that makes the car as fast as it is.

Rev Speed Magazine Super Battle Time Attack 2011 @ Tsukuba Circuit 

by Eric Hsu
The annual Rev Speed Magazine Super Battle Time Attack took place on December 9, 2011 at the home of Time Attack, Tsukuba Circuit. Garage Revolution brought out their FD RX-7 to dominate the competition, but the weather prevented any records from being set. Regardless, the variety of cars at the event was a treat for any JDM enthusiast. A ton of pics are after the jump.

One last thing: this will be the last time you will see an RB26 in it and the last time you'll see this car blue.

Greddy 35RX GT-R + Tarzan Yamada at Fuji Speedway, December 2011

by Eric Hsu

Back on December 10 last year, I took a short trip with Tarzan in his right hand drive PT Cruiser to Fuji Speedway so he could spend the afternoon testing the Greddy 35RX on the world famous Fuji Speedway. Greddy's goal was to hit 338kmh at the end of Fuji's front straight. But would Tarzan be able to do it with the new Bensopra body kit? A short feature on the car and that afternoon at Fuji with plenty of pics after the jump.

Garage Revolution's Time Attack FD3S RX-7, Part 2

By Eric Hsu

Part 2 of the Garage Revolution's Time Attack FD is after the jump. Since Jeff took over 800 pictures of this car, we had to pick the best of them and split the story into two parts. If you want to build the ultimate time attack car, study the following pages carefully and absorb the buffness that is the Garage Revolution FD RX-7.

Garage Revolution's Time Attack FD3S RX-7, Part 1

Text by Eric Hsu and photos by Jeff Naeyaert.

Finishing in 3rd place at the 2011 World Time Attack in Sydney, Australia makes the Garage Revolution FD3S RX-7 the world's fastest time attack RX-7. Without a doubt, this car is also the world's nicest RX-7 road race build to date having been designed and built around sound race car principles and not the usual JDM hype. Even the engine program was developed in house on GR's own in house engine dynamometer. After the jump you can see for yourself that no detail was overlooked.


Adventures in China & Hong Kong, Part 2

by Eric Hsu

Back in May this year, I took a trip to Dongguan China to train a customer on the Cosworth ECPro ECU and its accompanying software suite. After spending almost a week in a not so Westernized city, it was great to be back in Hong Kong where the old, modern, rich, poor, foreign, and Chinese all come together in a densely populated peninsula. Forunately I was introduced to some locals who were cool enough to show me around for the 2.5 days I had free. I think I saw more E92 M3s and R35 GTRs on that trip in Hong Kong than I've seen in Beverly Hills collectively in the last three years.
