Hi guys,
This machine is always in a state of flux.

Image

After countless hours of side by side in the course of a year and a bit. We traded these two bodies when I left Japan.
We certainly had our share of my tyre marks on each others door.

Image

Seen here soon after debut in late 2010, it has been through some evolutions in it's time. I estimate 50 weeks x2 daysx5hours = 500 hours of run time, but probably more.
A testament to the skills of it's previous owner, that it has survived so long.

now back in Australia, I decided to bring it up to date

Enter...

Image

... the HidariMaru S14 Samurai Spec.

the image i was going for was that of D1 practice machine. RB26 2.8L Stoker... 1000+hp etc.

Image

I think the image is looking pretty aggressive. I'm still to add another 2mm to the spacers, FMIC and few other details that will come in time.

So sexy, hard to believe it has so many hours of run time.

Yeah, My friend used it for soo long.
He has always run vecro on the front which also helps soften impacts.
I used to go to Max-one once or twice a week for about a year, but my friend would go there and other circuits also mid week, always with this body.
It's had plenty of impacts and the front bumper has been replaced, It's got lots of goo and gauze and it's really stiff.
As I got better, we had more tyre clashes than crashes. All my recent bodies also have lasted well.
I'm quite honored to run it. I just made it a little more my style. I love it now.
