    More Info Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, driving his customized Cultus, entered the Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb every year between 1989 and 1994, winning the unlimited division in 1992 and 1993 and coming in 2nd place overall in 1993. He entered again in 1994, switching from his Cultus to an Escudo-based racer, and came in overall 1st place in 1995 with a twin-engine Escudo, which in 1996 evolved into a twin-V6 engine model. The engine are based on the same engine used in the top-of-the-line Escudo street car: a two 2.5-liter DOHC 6-valve model H25A V6. The two engines, rear- and mid-mounted to the aluminum space frame body, are deliver an amazing 995 horsepower at maximum output, with maximum torque of 688 ft lbs (929 nm). These engines are combined with a sequential 6-speed gearbox and all-wheel drive. Double wishbone suspension and carbon disc brakes are used for both the front and rear wheels, with 8-pistons calipers in the front and 4-pistons calipers in the rear. This vehicle was specifically designed to win the Pikes Peak competition. Despite the large body, features such as the aluminum space frame keep the weight down to a super-lightweight 1760 lbs (800 kg), for a power-weight ratio of 1.77 lbs per bhp - making this a monster machine indeed.

    Ive already seen a bunch over here. But then again SoCal does usually get first shipments of new global-model cars. The best lookin ones are the ones that have chromed the handle and got chrome rims. Not that im a big fan of chrome, but it does look damn good. And they are already selling a clear light for that ugly yellow one up front. Maybe expensive as its a new car, but nonetheless... but if they'll be anything like the good points of a 300zx, it'll be a good car.

    Shaved Badges, Shaved door handle (assuming youll get an electronic RF system to "pop" it open) shaved front bmber to get rid of yellow light altogether, and tint. Here all 3 of those mods would cost you in the neighboorhood of 1500$ if you know the right people. If you dont, that price goes up because body shops wont give you a fair price on the bumber, badges, and door handles - they'll give you "its a new 350z" price.

    I couldnt put chrome rims on it, and an afterthought would also be to get a billet chrome grill to go in the "mouth" area of the front under spoiler. Maybe another 200$US. And please dont make fun of the Photoshop work. I know its not that great. I spent 5minutes on it, just to get a feel. Its not a good enough colour to really get into photoshoping it. Its also not a good enough colour to buy the car, so maybe get a black, or a blue.

    I'd either use sequential twin turbos or one greddy t5 pushing upwards of 18psi max... but you get it. Possibly supercharge it if you can get 430-ish hp.

    22" - NO
    19" - Yes, remember less weight in the rim means faster acceleration (so long as you keep traction, and a heavier rim keeps better traction - tradeoff)

    Maybe not such a gay blue, maybe more like the BMW 3-series blue, or a royal blue, you know...

    and as for the intercooler idea.. good idea to have one... bad idea on where to place it... as much as you may think it looks good to flaunt your intercooler... its not. put a nice grille there to cover it up a little. make somebody LOOK FOR IT. thatll get you somemore respect, and if your doing the chrome rims.. chrome grille. AND NO CHICKEN WIRE! thats lame.

    have fun dreamin thou...
