Shinya Kimura by Matt Rus

Shinya Kimura is a custom motorcycle engineer at Chabott Engineering and his concept of building a motorcycle is extremely simple: no drawing boards, nor computer software, nor any help, just his momentarily filling for bending an aluminum or cutting steal. And the results are surprisingly awesome.

Kalle Rovanperä: The 8 Year Old Rally Driver by Matt Rus

Posted by

Is this the new Sébastien Loeb? Kalle Rovanperä is a son of the famous Finnish rally driver Harri Rovanperä and he is already following in his  father’s footsteps. At the age of 8 he already shows the talent of driving a rally car like a pro!

Kudos to Kalle!

Video – FIA GT1 GT-R Up Close and Personal

Posted by

I wanted to share with you a video I took during my last trip to Japan. The video is an up close look at Nissan’s R35 GT-R FIA GT1 Race car. This was one of those cars that was far more impressive in the flesh than I ever expected. Of all of the cars that I enjoyed seeing at the Nismo Festival this year, these GT1 cars were my favorite. The quality of the car’s construction, the sound, the details in the design and the closer resemblance to a street GT-R all made these cars more special to me than seeing the Super GT cars (which are closer to resembling rocket ships than street cars these days).

Having felt that pictures do not do the car justice, I jumped behind the ropes with my press pass and shot a walk around video of the car. My hope was to try to show the car from my perspective there at the event, getting a closer look at the design and also getting a chance to hear the sound of another nearby GT1 rev its insane V8 engine. Pictures in my opinion have a hard time doing this car justice.

I just put this up on youtube a minute ago for you all to see. I hope you enjoy.

Video: Threatening R33 by Matt Rus

Posted by

With all of the talk about R35 GT-Rs, I wanted to share a video of an older GT-R that I enjoyed. Besides the 650hp pumping out of this Skyline from Denmark, the reason I like this video is actually the music which caught my attention. I believe it’s from the movie  Batman. The footage itself is nothing special: just cruising GT-R R33 and some engine shots but music is the key factor that makes video worth to watch.

Skyline from Simon Helbo Nielsen on Vimeo.

…and two shots of the car. If you are wondering what has been done to the car, here is short list of modifications (built by Full Stage Japan):

Bored out to 2,700cc
HKS 87mm forged pistons
STEP 2 camshafts (264/272)
HKS Head gasket 1.6mm
Head ported and polished
Combustion chamber processed
HKS F-CON V gold PRO
SARD 700CC injectors/NISMO fuel pumps
AP MINES 6 POT brake callipers
NISMO GT-LSD 1.5WAY
TRUST T78-29D 14cm turbine
