PAID THE COST: Asayan is back

Remember Asayan’s sweet Levin coupe? Here’s some pics of it at last weekend’s HitomiGO day at Suzuka Twin Circuit.

Most of the day was wet and miserable, but at the end of the day, the sun came out just enough for me to do a “Linhbergh” as they are known in the trade.

Here’s how it looked for most of the day, spraying up roostertails of water. Asayan wasn’t too happy with the conditions, since he wasn’t able to go as fast as he would have liked. The water also made his engine bay all filthy.

He insisted I take some photos of it, since he has neatened it up a bit recently with some matte black hammer finish and a custom punched alloy strut tower brace. A quick spray with the hose, and it was ready for some pics under terrrible indoor lighting.

As for the actual setup, it’s the same as before. I forgot to ask about the internals, but it’s damn quick and revs its guts off.

I’m guessing there’s Toda stuff inside too, but I’m not sure. Sorry 86 peoples!

Here’s Hitomi driving her S13. She kindly asks that you ignore the crash damage on the back. I think they’re a couple or married or something, but I’m not sure. I can hardly understand a thing Asayan and Hitomi say, thanks to their heavy use of Kansai dialect!
