KANSAI ALL STARS

August 20th, 2021

a few weeks have passed since the last little update from the 3037 S13 getting completely put under the knife at garage REMS. skipping ahead this is an update with a fair few updates in one.

over the past 5-6 weeks the 3037 car has undergone a lot of changes both mechanically and cosmetically purely to enter kansai all stars 2021 in a well presented car, finally. this year is my 3rd year in a row and really wanted to ensure that the car wasn’t looking like it was in previous years. the majority of kansai drivers will do a refresh and makeover once a year and this is the event that is high priority.

after qualifying for nara prefecture this year ( 2 weeks prior ) it was basically go time at N-Style to get the car completely pulled down, cleaner parts such as doors installed and brand new aero from D-MAX in osaka all to be prepped for a candy lick of paint. i have owned this car a little over 3 years now and i feel like this was the perfect time to make the car exactly how it has turned out. the majority of kansai & meihan drivers usually tend to practice and put their budgets towards seat time and non stop maintenance rather than appearances so this is the same mentality i have tried to adopt since buying this car and attempting to get up the ladder at meihan c course. i feel like it would have been a little waste of time and money to buy the car and jump straight into making it pretty without getting to know the car let alone driving meihan.

the car’s rear end got completely cut off and pipe-framed thanks to waki-san at gagare REMS in kagawa over in tokushima. a fuel setup, cooler was also installed along with a GP SPORTS water sprayer kit and TRUST greddy larger oil pan to compensate temperatures for japanese summers. kansai all stars is usually the peak of summer here in japan (obon holiday week) so you have to prepare the car for extremely hot and muggy conditions. cleaner doors were put on and a full D-MAX type 3 aero kit including a brand new carbon bonnet put on the car, as soon as i purchased this car this was always the plan and choice i wanted to go with. i have some very rare wheels stored away which will also be going on the car at a later date but more on that stage soon!

below are a bunch of photos from getting the car stripped, prepped & painted. the lead up to kansai all stars and the event itself. the weather has been extremely horrible the last 2 weeks straight however the sun managed to come out this morning for the first time so i rolled the car out for 20 minutes and took a few photos with my camera along with seeing the candy paint in the sun for the first time. it’s hard to believe it’s the same car but couldn’t be happier i have given this car more life potentially!

at the bottom of this post i have added a little youtube video from the event itself that macey shot off his phone for me – thank you brother.

this years kansai all stars i made it through the 1st 2nd and 3rd rounds of qualifying advancing into the tournament which this year was my goal. top 12 was against kikutani in the grey S15 which i came out on top going through to the top 8. kitayama in the orange 180SX from kyoto managed to do a better run knocking me out which placed me 6th overall in expert which definitely didn’t feel real! i will try my best to get 1st 2nd or 3rd next year and get on the podium for all stars!

last monday at meihan sports land, c course. a few runs in the 3037 car x

i have always been thoroughly into NA S13s and ever since i crashed the beige one in late 2017 in japan a replacement had to come along and be built sooner rather than later. i have done a few posts here and there more-so on social media of the new 4 throttle black one. this week last year i actually purchased it off a good friend i’ve known for quite some time in osaka.

early last week the new computer – haltech elite 550 which replaced the old tech TOMEI raytech was installed alongside its harness & tuned out in hyogo prefecture right near central circuit. following so a day of maintenance was cured over the car before agreeing to drive a free soukoukai (practice) day at suzuka twin last saturday.

i have included a 15ish minute RAW video at the bottom of this post just like late last year in the 3037 turbo silvia which seemed to gain some interest. i have always enjoyed raw non-edited videos with no music. enjoy xxx

suzuka twin circuit hitomiGO practice day. enjoy 11 minutes of uncut raw footage. can’t wait to drive this car again x

 

the only other day i managed to get some in-car footage. onboard at tokushima kart land free practice. ¥4000 to drive the entire day. enjoy xxx
