Apexi Bergenholtz Drift FD: Converted

A couple weeks ago Masaki from Apexi hit me up via AIM to see if I had time to do a touch up tune on the Apexi Formula D drift FD3S. It went like something like this:

Masaki said, "They converted it to right hand drive."

I said, "Oh you guys brought the old D1 car from Japan?"

"No, they converted it."

"Who converted it?

"Ron [Bergenholtz], Keith [Apex], and Chuck [Apex]."

So for a couple weeks before SEMA and the days following SEMA, I spent a good part of my time preparing the XS BNR32 GT-R for the event after work. While I was at SEMA, Koji and Peter at XS took over and put the car together. As usual, Koji and Pete did an excellent job as the car was mechanically 100% reliable.
