PERFECTION……WAS ALMOST THERE

NISMO 350Z MODEL REACHED PERFECTION FOR THE Z33 MODEL. IN JAPAN IT WAS TAKEN FURTHER WITH THE 380RS MODEL. HOWEVER MOST WOULD AGREE THE ONE PART THAT WAS THE MAJOR MISSING LINK WAS THE INTERIOR.

THE CAR HAD THE LOOKS ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT I BELIEVE U.S. DESIGN ENGINEERS HAD TOO MUCH OF A SAY ON THE INTERIOR QUALITY. IF THERE WASN’T GOING TO BE A SPECIFIC ENGINE FOR THE Z; THE QUALITY OF THIS VEHICLE SHOULD HAVE BEEN UPPED TO MATCH ITS RIVAL–THE S2000–IN LOOKS INSIDE AND OUT.589048379_PucDi-XL

ThE 370z (Z34) FOLLOWED THROUGH WITH AN UPDATED INTERIOR AND OTHER GOODIES, BUT FAILED IN LOOKING AS DYNAMIC AND THRILLING. THE NISMO MODEL DOESN’T LOOK AS AGGRESSIVE OR INTERESTING AS THE 350Z. I’M NOT SURE WHATS NEXT, BUT THE NEXT MODEL SHOULD BE A COMBINATION OF BOTH VEHICLES TO MAKE THE PERFECT MACHINE AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING.  HOWEVER CHECK OUT THE UPDATE FOR THE NISMO EDITION, LOOKS MUCH MORE DYNAMIC AND THE LINES ARE MORE EMPHASIZED AS THE Z33 MODEL WERE.2014nissannismo370zgal52014nissannismo370zgal7

Top 6 Japanese Tuners: #2 Mine’s

Simple, Beautiful, & Fast

That is the philosophy of Mine’s

Michizo Niikura opened the doors of his beloved company around 1985, to establish this philosophy of building daily street cars with the ability to be used on the track as well. I honestly believe their cars are works of art. So simple yet unique; their modifications aren’t too over the top yet they excel for the purpose they were built for. Niikura-san is a very confident man in his products, but is not quick to boast on the quality and achievement of his vehicles, he instead wants the driver to feel that experience. My favorite build from them is the BNR34, such a quick and agile machine that isn’t too heavily tuned that you can’t drive it every day.

I enjoy seeing these cars on videos such as best motoring as well as on gaming platforms like GT5. It seems that they focus more on what parts are restricting the production model of the car and build from there. I know that might seem trivial  but most tuners also change the exterior dramatically to achieve this where Mine’s doesn’t focus on the exterior until internal components are accomplished. Its very important to understand how to improve the quality and power of the car, without having to remove/modify most of its components in order for it to be compatible on the street.
