Continuing with my quest to make use of all the pictures I've taken over the years, these are from an open track day I was at back in 2014 at Okayama International Circuit. I wasn't actually attending the track day, but a drift school Yasuyuki Kazama was hosting on the facility's skid-pad. During a break, I decided to walk over to the paddock to check out the cars that were in attendance.
Not the typical choice for a track car, especially in these days when the 100 chassis was nowhere near as popular as it is now. You'll notice the 1JZGTE as been swapped for a 2JZGTE.
KT-Sports S14 Silvia. It's been a while, but if I recall correctly it was running an HKS GT3037 turbo and some lumpy cams. I spent some time watching it lap the track and it was keeping up with the GT-Rs in attendance.
From the rear. Big GT-Wing on the trunk and some pretty big fender flares to cover the wider track and fat Advan tires.
Mister-2 with some pretty wild aero. I know these days canards and diffusers are the standard, but this was pretty extreme for an amateur car back then.
Big duct feeding cool air into the engine room. I also just noticed it was running Meister S1 up front and Rays 57s in the rear.
This S13 Silvia was still a work in progress but still looked pretty damn aggressive. I think that's a TBO from bumper and you can never go wrong with bronze TE37s.
I will forever love the look of an S13 with a stock rear bumper with a diffuser underneath. This one even had the Vortex generators on the side.
There were a bunch of Factor Racing GT-Rs in attendance, so it may have been a track day they were hosting for their customers, which is an annual tradition for many shops in Japan.
Much more aggressive from the front. Looks like a Do-Luck front bumper. The headlight vent was pretty nifty as well. Again, you can't go wrong with bronze TE37s. I've never been much of an R33 fan, but I can get behind the track car look.
Lots of engine work. If I'm remembering right this was an HKS 2.8L stroker. I love it when GT-R owners stick with the twin turbo setup.
More Factor Racing GT-Rs. I didn't take too many pictures or recall many specific details about the cars in attendance, but I figured this would be a nice break from all the drift-related posts.
