Igors trip to Japan

Igor got back from Japan yesterday. Sounds as though he had a good trip. He got a chance to go to a Super GT race, hang out at Nismo, and a few other places.

I'm mostly jealous of the ride he got in the Z-Tune.

I guess we will see how everything pans out.

GT-R's in the USA

There are tons of questions and mis-information about importing Skyline GT-R's to the USA.

The easy answer is there is no way to import one to the US.

The real answer is people import them illegally all the time. Also 1996-1998 cars are able to be imported.

I wrote up some FAQ's about Importing cars to the US.

Its hot in LA.

Hot. Its still hot. We have a couple of cars to dyno, its just its so damn hot in City of Industry. Hot everywhere really. 100 + temperatures.

We have been out on the race car since before Infineon. Hopefully we get everything back together and out at Laguna Seca near the end of the year.

Merritt took some photos and posted them here - D1/NHRA

Vegas was hot. Africa hot. We saw 121 degrees on the temperature gage in the car, while driving.

At the track, it was hot. The temperature gage on the trailer was pegged at 120. Even at midnight it was 95 degrees.

People drifted. People crashed.

Had dinner/breakfast with Mr. Shiobara from Escort Racing - and Mr Kawasaki from K Spec.

Kenny had mentioned that he was talking to a guy named Kawasaki that did some work with HKS. I was pretty sure it was HKS's driver of the Drag 180, Drag R33, and Supra.

It was interesting to be able to ask him a few questions about the car. I wanted to ask a lot more questions, but it was about 4 am, and we were all having a very late dinner.
