Pretty cool! Blue or Red.
Work have some interesting Matt Brown S1 and the new M1 R shown here.
Advan have a 5 spoke TC III which looks very similar to a TE37. I have no pic yet but These are a must have. Wait for shots. Matt black with a machined centre like TC II

Based on the last photoshop. This is a more extreme variation. Simply a concept image, but the low wide image is very cool.
The real plan is to retain the normal body and paint the wheels Matt Black.
Then add a Pit-Road generic 3 piece FRP splitter and fabricate approx 1.5" of Airdam to extend the Scoot bar. It's much higher than other bars on the market.
Craft Square mirrors will eventually complete the picture.

I am still looking for a final direction. But its close. Minimising cost vs performance.
While I like the white on white look. The car needs some more dark to balance those lights. So the matt black treatment might finally be used on my RP-01.
My current tyres are ok, but not much left on them, so after a bit of slide control practice, I think some Direzza Star Spec Radials will be used. 235/265 combo
This image is lowered, A LOT, but it wont be lowered much. Handling is good.
Directions include a front air dam or splitter and some simple graphics.
I think this creates a tough style and I still have the GT Wing for track days. Takes 10 minutes to swap it.

Vios III comes in the cheap sport version. Seat is more upright. Sides are lower.
Of course Zieg III is the ultimate FIA version and I will be way down low and laid back but it also offers a very difficult entry position.
VIOS III <- FD Fitting Check Here. Abit straight....
I'm leaning towards....
ZIEG III <- FD Fitting Check Here.
BN Sport Model has no buckskin on the shoulders and is black back and a little cheaper.
Also Bride logo Seats.

It's mostly 2nd gear for my beast. Tooo fast for this road. The new wing seems to keep things pretty stable.
I'll still keep looking for a TFR one though. This is just temporary.
And well set up. Lots and lots of grip. More than I expected actually, When it hooks up, it simply rockets.
The car is by far the fastest thing I've owned, so It will still take some confidence to use it to the full potential.
On the street, that is NOT going to happen. I was at full throttle on this twisty road for minimal periods.
This IS definately a track car, which opens a huge can of worms.

It has vents...? But I'm not sure thats a good thing. Exhaust into the interior?
Sweeping sides challenge the lines of the FD.
Influence from the purple beast.
KSP Rear Wing Spoiler Type II. It was cheap and it will replace the GT-Wing.
I've been told a GT wing on the C1 or Wangan is an instant ticket these days.
Should get bolted on tomorrow, my cheap tools were not complying today.
Rear image is TOUGH.
Kind of squares things off. But also makes a unique statement.
