TYPE-R FINAL BATTLE: Hot Version #106 at Maze Circuit, Part IIAugust 18, 2010 9:20 pm
Even though I was working on the Honda Type-R part of this particular Hot Version shoot, that didn’t stop me from having a look at some of the other cars that were there. This 180SX was there for a segment about drifting techniques, hosted by Nobuteru Taniguchi.
The G-Sonic Evolution kit is…not the best look for a 180SX. GT-style? Really? You could drop about one-tenth the cost of this kit on any number of other brands and get a far better result.
At least you can’t see the exterior from the inside.
This is Keiichi Tsuchiya’s agent, so of course he made sure that the boss’s car was always looking clean.

Here’s how it looks behind the scenes…
…and here’s what you see on the video!
Here’s some of the crew standing in for the cameramen to frame their shot. Their faces have been obscured for your protection!
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.
Filming the opening banter and driver introductions.
J’s Racing are still keeping up with their extreme spocom-style vinyl graphics.
The “fun potential” in this pic is pretty high.
Same goes for this one.
Tsuchiya doing the tuner segment intro. Notice that the tallest person in this shot is the race queen!
Spoon’s Ichishima was there to talk about his life with Honda’s Type-R.
Let’s just take a quick look outside the gates of Maze Circuit.
In case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “mah-zay”, not “mayz”.
The full name of the track is “Nihonkai Maze Circuit”, and “Nihonkai” means “sea of Japan”. It’s literally next to the beach.
Love the MF-10s on the red one.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a good look at the drifting segment.
