Project GT-R Needs More Fuel

Comments Off on Project GT-R Needs More Fuel

Doing Things The Slow Right Way One lesson I’ve learnt as Project GT-R‘s lengthy engine work has progressed, is that wherever possible you should try to future-proof. And that’s precisely what I ended up doing when it came to upgrading my BNR34 Skyline’s fuel system. In my last update, you might recall the original idea being to fit the

Project GT-R Gets Bigger Turbos

Comments Off on Project GT-R Gets Bigger Turbos

5 Years In The Making This has been a long time coming. No, Project GT-R has not been stripped of the green wrap applied for Tokyo Auto Salon; not counting the three to four years’ worth of parts-collecting, we just have to take a step back a year and a half to fully catch up with all the modifications I’ve

Pat’s Acres: This Is Drifting

Comments Off on Pat’s Acres: This Is Drifting

Wet Start What does drifting mean to you? Is it 1,000hp monsters sliding through a few corners at a racetrack?

Comments Off on Opel Speedster: It’s All About Smiles Per Gallon

“My car is not just a piece of sport equipment. I regard it as an extension of my body. “I want to feel the road. Everything between the surface and me, in essence, is the car, so it has to be reduced to the absolute minimum of parts for that reason. I always want to

To put things into perspective, that’s five to six times colder than your average freezer. For the last six years, Arkadiy Tsaregradtsev has organised the Winter Drift Battle championship, and in that time has evolved it to

Comments Off on A Few Hours With The Morohoshi Family

Into The Night For all the exposure that Morohoshi-san has received across the web, in magazines, on TV shows and even video games, we haven’t spent that much time with him here on Speedhunters. Back in 2015, I worked closely with the Lamborghini rebel himself when it came to coordinating his Need for Speed debut and also visited his

Building JDM Dreams In NZ: A Look Inside JTune

Comments Off on Building JDM Dreams In NZ: A Look Inside JTune

Of all the places we visit and stories we tell on Speedhunters, in my mind it’s pretty hard to beat a shop tour. Getting to go behind closed doors at workplaces that specialise in making cars look better or perform better, or even better, both, is a definite perk of the job, but it also provides an

PNW: The Japan You’ve Never Heard Of

Comments Off on PNW: The Japan You’ve Never Heard Of

The Pacific Northwest – loosely regarded as the American states of Oregon and Washington, and I suppose we’ll throw British Columbia in there too. If you live up that way, you already know how strong car culture is in your neck of the woods. But if you don’t, it’s high time someone shed some light
