PAID THE COST: Asayan is backMarch 9, 2010 5:30 pm
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!

“do a Linhbergh” lolz!
Asayan’s Levin is amazing.
That first shot is just awesome, lighting is perfect! That engine bay is a work of art, Asayan is one luck guy.
Has he raised it? Seems a bit more higher than i remember or maybe its just the photo lol
Awesome, the coupe looks so good! wish my gf did skids 🙁
lol linhbergh shot
dirty engine bay? ha!
lol i wasn’t aware Linhberg’s name reached that sort of status.. i guess it is a distinct style though 😉
great shooting Alexi!
as for the car, that strut brace is beeeefy! and adjustable cam sprockets ftw 8)
Rad. I’m feelin this. To really do a “Linhberg” you need to also have a blog entry that reads like highschool prose about how much you love yourself, I mean light capturing device, I mean camera… ROFL!!!
Love the color on that 86!!
Fan the rolla’ is gorgous!!!!and the engine set up looks sOOOOO sick!
Plus the guys lady drifts?I’m packing up and headed to Japan!
That is one nasty AE86!! 🙂
The s13 is amazing!
I love Hitomi’s car! her car has been my background for months now! such a minimalist style i love it
Thanks Alexi! This is one of my top 10 hachis! If you see Asayan again, please ask for some specs.
Cold greetings from Luxembourg
lol Henry hit the nail on the head
Love the shots bro!
LOL @ Linhbergh shot.
You need Photoshop to make photos look the way he does. I swear every shot he puts up is chopped in some way…
Alexi, is there a website for “Looking”? I want to source some 86 coupe led tail lights.
