I'd say the opposite, considering the cars that have lately appeared in the manga... ><

Just wanted to clear something up.

During the Saitama expedition, did Ryosuke purposely let Nobuhiko follow Takumi from behind so that he'll be able to analyze the 86 and formulate a plan to defeat it during the saitama rematch?

Yes, simply because Ryosuke wanted to see how far Takumi can go as well so having mediocre rematches is a no No. With what Nobuhiko has gathered with his analyzing means Takumi will have a far greater challenge in the rematch which is what Ryosuke wants.

Then again Nobuhiko did out smart Ryosuke in a way because he never expected a Cappuccino as Takumi's opponent. He said it himself if it wasn't for the miraculous rain Takumi would have lost.

It's Ryosuke's simulation based on the crazy amount of data he has on both cars (although how he knows anything about the SW20 is beyond me).

How exactly was Takumi able to get over that deep gutter in 4th stage in the miata race? I know it had to do with wieght transfer or something.

he transfered most of the weight onto the outside tires. this made the inner tires support less weight allowing it to bridge that gap to run on the ground/grass and pass the guy. he had to be going fast to transfer the weight in this fashion, i beleive its related to G forces in a sense

Not really going fast, but putting out a lot of torque. The point was to floor the accelerator while turning in, so that you almost lift the right-inner wheel off of the ground. It raises just enough to get it across the gutter.

good point. I highly doubt its simulation, cause he was surprised that kai jumped a lil too early... maybe there is a tracker on his car tongue.gif

you also have to take note that this kind of theory is probably only possible for only a second or 2 especially during the situation takumi was in. The anime just loves making the corners longer than they really are so the Gutter Runs, Gutter Lift, and most of the tricks shown in the anime take quite long to do before they're over.

That car has a ton of power, and the best rubber money can buy. Even at top gear the car would be able to corner just fine. After all, Tsukuba is pretty wide and has wide corners. It's not like Akina and Irohazaka with a bunch of really sharp hairpins.

Though I'd have to watch Fourth Stage again to see if Keisuke actually made it up to fifth gear...

I don't recall anyone saying such a thing. blink.gif Got an episode number for that?

We must assume so as I've heard nothing about it being back later in the manga. Funny how Iketani can wreck his S13 in First Stage and get it back in about a week, but Kenta wrecks his S14 and we haven't seen it for over a month. laugh.gif

FD keisuke power is like 300 HP. With 5th gear the FD should be over 200 km/h.
I don't think that in mountain pass it's possible to turn at this speed. So i think in corners for 86 and FD the gear are between gear 1 and gear 4. Gear 5 reserved for straighlines.

Why do the tires look like Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R's?

IIRC, they weren't out until 2005.

you can only speculate that there is a tracker on the tureno maybe ryousuke did plant one in or else how would he have known that the mr2(kai) jumped early and how far they got up in the race, ryousuke could even know which hairpin they got up to

i think it's a simulation and local drivers said in the radio the number of the hairpin or the name of the corner where Kai kogashiwa made his first jump. So seeing in his computer the road he could say how many hairpins remaining.

Kenta tried to perform a blind attack, and failed.
