NZ Performance Car 138, June 2008

  • POWER LIFTER With a hard-tuned 1100hp RB30 engine between the struts, Robbie Ward's 8-second drag-spec 240Z is an insane creation. Oh, and did we mention that it has a WoF and reg, too? 
  • EPIC ENCOUNTER Two Pro Stock Celicas and the biggest field of Pro Import and Sports Mod cars ever seen in one place. That was NZPC Import All-Stars 2008. 
  • THE PHOENIX One of the Australia's quickest import drag cars was smacked up real good a week before being shipped to NZ. But as the GAS Motorsport team proves, a lot can be achieved in 10 days. 
  •  BACK ON SONG Drifting - we can't get enough of it. Luckily the NZ Drift series is back on track for '08 - and we're at the first round to catch the tyre-fryin' action. 
  • MONSTER MASH Take a CR-X, the face of a Civic, the heart of a VR-4 and blend. Dr Frankenstein would be proud of HNDA8U. THRASH METAL Drift-X track days always attract a tasty assortment of tuned import rides. We're at Pukekohe to lap it up. 
  • CARBON DELUXE A full composite body, a 700hp 20B, a leather-trimmed interior and 20-inch rollers. RE Amemiya's latest creation is as tough as they come. 
  • FUJI FEAST Once a year Nissan's motorsport arm 
  • NISMO puts on a show like no other. Thanks to David and Matt Tipple we're at Fuji Speedway for a closer look. 
  • REPLACEMENT THRILLER If Toyota built a modern day AE86 and tuned it up for pro-level drifting what would it look like? Probably something like the RS*R Scion tC.
