135i vs M3 vs Civic Mugen vs STI





Cool video, except its in japanese i think. Does anyone know which rims are on either 135 in the video. One set looks almost like Rs4 replicas without the concave.

Link for more info on the Marusyu 135, can't read the blog, so I have no idea what the rims are called (any help would be appreciated)

True, you can see drivers just letting others pass. That M3 just at the finish lets up on the gas so obviously that I thought it broke down. Also, you can people shifting at 4k rpm, so tha tthe car bogs at <2k RPM, a few times in the video.

Either it was staged like a WWE battle, or that is proof positive that not all drivers are created equal.

The M3 put up the fastest lap time, almost by a full second.

This video makes me wonder how well tuned cars with procede/jb3 would do on the track since Tsuchiya's car definitely does overheat in the middle of the race and probably went into limp mode. The purpose of the battle I think (from the intro's text with the limited japanese I can read) was for the 135 to get revenge for its previous battle result in the stock car, so they brought in these two tuner cars both with boost controllers on them.

I remember watching an episode of BM where a severely under-powered Japanese car was holding its own against an F50?!?

I can take this show as serious as Top Gear.
