QUOTE (fuji_tak @ Yesterday, 3:03 AM)
About NSX i wonder how kubo heiji could make it 15 s faster than FD.
Kubo Eiji (former rally) seems to be Bunta caliber in term of settings and driving.

Keisuke matched the NSX.

Hence why Tsuyoshi is feeling so intimidated now. Unfortunately, I don't think the NSX Vs. FD race is going to be very interesting, seems like another Nakazato Takeshi, fast car but very emotional, which effects his driving.

Slowly losing interest in the series.

Maybe just like Takumi appeared in the final seconds before the race with Nakazato, Shinji will appear in the final seconds before the race with Takumi.

If that's the case, I believe Shinn's just like Takumi back in First Stage, he shows no interests in street racing at all, but when he does, it's at the beginning of the very last minute where he arrives.

And perhaps the battle between Shinn and Takumi could be a reminiscent battle of AE86 vs FD3S back in First Stage as well...now that battle could be a bit nostalgic... awesome.gif

But I still can't imagine Takumi being at Keisuke's position just yet...(The part where he's pressurized while his opponent's still all like...sleep.gif "Bored") LOL

shinn is just too confident because he never exprimented to be defeated.
He is the fastest in Hakone where there is the better drivers.

So you mean Shinn's like Takumi...where officially they never lost once before. But since we all know Takumi tasted defeat once (or twice, if you count God Hand), I believe that could have some meaning in between these two when they race.

Seeing as things are now, Shinn still seemed to be skeptical about the race that's gonna be starting soon...

But before that, let's go back to Tsuyoshi. Do you think he'll suffer the same kind of defeat like Nakazato during Keisuke's battle at Myogi?

Since Seiji said Tsuyoshi is more or less an emotional (easily agitated) driver, he's bound to make mistakes when he loses his cool like Nakazato.

However, since Tsuyoshi and Nakazato's skill gap are pretty far, part of me believe that Tsuyoshi might be a creepy opponent like Takumi when he's pissed off. I certainly believe (at least a bit) that Tsuyoshi's control level of his NA1 is equivalent to that of the Double Aces of Project D...so Keisuke's battle this time might really be the toughest one so far.

Then again, if Tsuyoshi really let his emotions get the better of him; I wouldn't be surprised if this battle is over within a few chapters. facepalm.gif

Sorry for the long post, btw. ^^;

young hojo seems to think about takahashi brothers : "reap what you sow"
they destroy is elder brother and his family plan.

In japan the older take responsability and must inherit father business.
but rin's mind was destroyed by kaorie suicide.
Rin run away from his family and younger hojo was pressured by his father to take medical studies to inherit the father entreprise.
younger hojo life became like the hell.

Kubo said that he made 15 seconds nsx faster with a normal driver.
But younger hojo is a top driver so we could think that younger hojo wil make nsx faster than 15 s.

I'm hoping for some dramatic smack talk between Hojo and Keisuke to make the match interesting

Great find man...nice NSX pic. smile.gif

Though the only thing that's apart from Tsuyoshi's NA1 will be the rims. (In D6AA, Tsuyoshi's NSX has golden rims with a red logo on the center.)

Finally Young Hojo did practice with NSX
young Hojo has an advantage of 15 s. To think that keisuke couldn't let more than 6s against purple shadow gtr34.
kenji&iketani are worried.
Shinn doesn't have motivation.
Young Hojo seems a scary boss. Sidewider=Hojo family money.
Shinn is he tired to be traited like subordinate ?!!
Takumi and keisuke practice too.
Kenji said that this battle will determine east japan fastest.

Here's what I get.

kubo seems motivated only by money.
Sodewinder team hasn't pride as professional it's just about money.

Well, you know what they say...other than seeing how much one spend their effort on practicing a car, there's always an option of seeing how much money they spend on their rides as well...

But if they're money hungry curs like those Evo V and VI jerks, I'd have lots of deteriorated degree of respect towards this team known as Sidewinder (except for Shinn of course...since he seemed like an okay dude...I don't think Hojo Rin is a member though...or is he?)

Sidewinder power is based on MONEY. They have great drivers and great material brought with money (from Family Hojo or sponsors from the track?)

Difference between the Evo jerks and Sidewinder is that the Evo guys didnt have the bite to back up their bark. The Sidewinder dudes on the other hand seem to be the kind that are a serious threat to Project D.

the NSX vs FD match will be interesting to watch. Both are lightweight cars that depend much on being nimble. It will not be a match of who has more horsepower

shigeo sensei seems affected by Tsunami/Fukuyama nuclear accident in north of japan(like all japanese).
In the last chapter he seems to use special words saying that the team which wins (sidewinder or project d) will be the "fastest in North kanto/japan"

This may be a bit trivial, but I want to mention that
North Kanto refers to Gunma, Tochigi and Ibaraki, and
South Kanto refers to Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba and Tokyo.

So, considering the fact that Project D has dominated 5 of the 7 areas above (don't know why Project D will not challenge Chiba and Tokyo), Project D can be deemed as not just the fastest in North Kanto but also the fastest in Kanto, if they defeat Sidewinders.

Since no information about how were Sidewinders doing in other Kanto prefectures other than Kanagawa, on no basis could Sidewinders be deemed as fastest in Kanto, right? Even more weird is, Kanagawa is a South Kanto prefecture, how can a Kanagawa-based team be deemed as fastest in North Kanto?
