I had a visit from Mint at the weekend with his S15 Spec R, probably for the last time!! The car is set to go to it’s new owner in a few weeks time. Before that though would had to remove some interior goodies that he had bought on his many trips to Japan and replace with the original Nissan items. So, Takata’s out, Nardi wheel and quick release boss out, rear seats back in, standards seat belts back in, and standard Spec R steering wheel back on. Just needs a bloody good clean now to make it abit more ‘Minty Fresh’!!
That’s the thing I like about this car though, it gets used everyday, no matter what the Scottish weather can throw at it!! Rain, Snow, Ice, plus touge runs & drift days too. Not bad for a car that this year won Best Modified Car at the North East Motor Show, helped JDMtas.com win best stand at the Japanese Auto Extravaganza & got a write up in Japanese Performance magazine. It scrubs up well!!!
Anyway here are a few shots of the car from the weekend in full ‘dirt’ spec!! plus a few of how it looks when clean (and with Uras front end)

I stumbled across these pics the other day of a time attack inspired Nissan S15 from Out Trash of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The SR20 has been taken to 2.2L courtesy of Tomei pistons, rods & crank. Power is 460ps @ 1.5bar thanks to Tomei cams and an HKS GT2835R turbo. All controlled by an Apexi Power FC.
Here is a short video of the car at Tsukuba:- http://www.out-trash.com/img/mpeg/s15-02.wmv
