NZ Performance Car 243, March 2017

In this issue of NZ Performance Car, we catch up with Blake Harper and Jared Croft from Cany Customs in the 03. You might remember this duo from the cover 12 months ago with their Tandem of Bro S-chassis rocking identical paint, wheels, and wild stance. Twelve months on, they return with a rebuilt S15 and Jared’s Toyota Altezza.

We also take a look at ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett’s rebirthed MADBUL with its RX-3 front conversion, a conversion that few have pulled off around the world thus far — has Mike?

Editor Marcus heads to Japan for Nismo festival, while back home Richard goes gravel bashing in an AE86 with a very special engine package. Jaden hangs with Rotor Pulse in the South Island, a growing RX-only car club, and we also look at balancing your rotating assembly. For all the drift nuts, we showcase a bunch of the more interesting and oddball entrants at round two of the Demon Engery D1NZ National Drifting Championship, and we also catch up with team DSR for a look at their pair of S-chassis.

To sum up Issue No. 243 in one word, it would have to be ‘stacked’, so we hope you have your reading glasses at the ready.
