HOT-VERSION VOL.126 GUNMA CYCLE SPORT CENTER Due to the snow, the course was almost closed. Gunma Cycle Sports Center. The great fighters of the touge have been waiting for this day. The preparation is beginning quietly under the high pressure atmosphere. The biggest battle in history... is about to begin! TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND TANIGUCHI, TSUCHIYA, ORIDO Hot Version, volume 126 has begun. It's been a year, Mr. Tsuchiya. WHAT DO YOU MEAN, SINCE? -What do you mean, since? -I mean... since then. What the fuck, you idiot! This time, it's the Demon King Play Off. Mr. Tsuchiya, we are ready and waiting for you, hurry up! Asaki Moriwaki is in charge of the girls bit. This time, as it is the Demon King Play Off, please seduce the touge fighters during the competition!
This time, I'm not going to lose to the fighters who battle for Demon King. You don't lose? -Yes. -You are an unpopular actress... I'm sorta popular! Okay, shall we get on with it? FINISH WITH SEDUCING TIME!? Can you pick up the poster, please? Yes, sure. This time it is like this... TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF Lets begin with the S-tire class. A NEW SECTION FOR CARS WITH LESS POWER THE TIRE WIDTH SHOULD BE UP TO 205 There is someone who insists on making this car the champion, so he made this. Aha, I see. No, no, that's not true. AE86 IS EVERYONE'S REQUEST! Okay, okay, we understand. So this new S-tire class... This Spirit MR-S is a troublemaker here! The MR-S has a lot of American fans. TECHNO PRO SPIRIT MR-S TUNER KUMAKURA TOSHIO I thought no one was gonna challenge this. Ah, I see. What do you think about this? DRIFT KING AE86 TUNER NACK KAMATA I think it's going to be a good one. You are irresponsible, as usual! And so, when one of them wins, then... The wild card, Assist M3. This M3 is just amazing.
So about the Assist, ASSIST M3 TUNER MORI MASAO it has lost to Super Mame with lap time, but when it comes to battle, I think the engine power is going to make a difference. After the hairpin, it might take the lead. So with the winner from there, MCR GT-R will have to fight with it. This one is just cheating, it is way too fast! Just look at the power, how many horsepower? TUNER KOBAYASHI SHINICHI Well, the power is more then 700. It's more than seven times that of Tsuchiya's Super Mame. Seven times! So that's about it for the left block. Now we have these two cars here. Arvou S2000 and Feed FD3S. This is gonna be a lot of fun. ARVOU S2000 TUNER SHIBATA YUSAKU FEED FD3S TUNER FUJITA YOSHIHARU Arvou and Mr. Fujita's battle. -And then they will fight this one. -That's the Demon King, do your best. How is this one, Ume-chan? 2013 DEMON KING J'S RACING S2000 TUNER JUNICHI UMEMOTO I'm a bit worried because everyone is talking a lot about engine power. Well, Yusaku's car has a super charger this time...
-400 horse power. -Well, it's gonna be difficult but, -I put some brown in as well... -In your hair? It's very popular in Tochigi prefecture. DEMON KING HAIR CUT TOCHIGI VERSION!? Well, so, about the Mame Go, it has entered, but probably won't win will it? How can you say that? You never know until we fight! Touge Strongest Legend. Demon King Play Off 2014. Let's begin! BACK TO THE ORIGIN TOUGE THE ULTIMATE CONTROL, IS HERE. TOUGE STRONGEST ZERO ESCAPE ZONES RELENTLESS UNDULATION THE WINNER WILL BE A DEMON KING Twenty five seconds on the first half, that would be good. The weight balance... I have reworked it a lot, so I think I have a good chance. Yes, well... it's going to be tough, but I will try my best. At the final, the opponent is going to be very fast, so it will be a tough fight. I'm confident! I did all I can do, so I will go for the Demon King.
This time... I have brought my commuting car. I don't know how it will perform. But I do want to go for the 24 second range. That's my goal. DEMON KING The best touge machines have gathered here. TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 SETTING RUN The stage is Gunsai A Course. At the setting run, time is measured between the major corners. See the list for the best lap time of each entry machine. The best record is Demon King, at 25.312 seconds Now there will be one hour of setting runs! TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 Today I changed the Final setting. Up until now it was 4.5. Last time we tried with a unique setting, 5.1, but it was too complicated. So this time we used 4.7. This time I really believe Mr. Tsuchiya will perform a miracle. I am full of hope.
SETTING RUN DRIFT KING AE86 X DK Let's begin the annual Demon King Strongest Legend Play Off. I've put on the S-tires. I will be pushing the limits of 86, if you want to look at it that way. THIS IS A TEST RUN ON A CLOSED COURSE, PLEASE NEVER DO THIS ON A PUBLIC ROAD It's very cold, and very slippery. LAP TIME DRIFT KING AE86 28.494 SECONDS Today's temperature is only four degrees Celsius. He begins with a good warm up. I think you'll be ready after two laps. Yeah, there's not much grip yet. Maybe I'll try a relaxed run. He steps up the pace for the second lap. LAP TIME DRIFT KING AE86 26.219 SECONDS The time is 26.219 seconds. -Is it warm? -Yeah, it is. I think one more lap. It's 26.2, so you should be able to reach the 25 second zone. -Okay, I will try! -How is the shift, is it okay? Yeah, it's good. LAP TIME DRIFT KING AE86 26.232 SECONDS Is he pushing too much at the corners? The time is the same as before... I made a mistake.
The counter was too long, the counter... I think the air is just right now, as it's 1.9 to 1.7. It's natural. I think it's good, as well. Okay, I will be more careful this time. Dori Dori was trying too hard, this time he tries to be more careful. At the long right corner, he makes a zero counter. LAP TIME DRIFT KING AE86 25.890 SECONDS He's beaten his own personal record! PERSONAL BEST! Look at that! I don't like this feeling. Can't believe it! -I think this was a good one. -It's 25.8 seconds! Great! Amazing! -Can we make the front a bit tighter? -Okay, I'll do it. The air is good. TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 I moved the fuel tank from the rear to the front. I made the front about 30 kg heavier for the weight balance. The rear is lighter now. I think it's a good balance, but it hasn't run yet. Maybe I shall take out the Kamata soul, you know? SETTING RUN SPIRIT MR-S X MAX
I think it's fun to have S-tires. Do you think you can get into the 25 second range? -I would love to. -Please do! SO NOISY! LAP TIME SPIRIT MR-S 26.325 SECONDS Already on the warm up run he's in the first half of 26 seconds. Maybe we can have high expectations? Two kilograms. -The rear is a bit harder. -Okay, it's good. Since the front tires are super soft, he goes maximum speed on the second lap. Oh no, he's spinning! This is dangerous! Oh wow, look at how he recovers. This is a touge super driver! That was close! It swings way too much, because of the difference with the tire pressure. I can make it the same. -That would be much better. -Shall we change it now? Yes, please, it's too dangerous. After changing the pressure of the rear tire, he heads onto the course. Shit... My expectation didn't work out. LAP TIME SPIRIT MR-S 26.306 SECONDS The time is 26.306 seconds. -Only 26.3 seconds? -Well, it's not warmed up yet so... I'll try once more. MR-S is among the top of its speed class for cornering.
After improving the balance between the front and rear, he makes a stress-free run. LAP TIME SPIRIT MR-S 25.683 SECONDS He makes it into the 25 second zone. But... I cannot step on the break, because I'm too scared. -What do you mean? -When I break, the rear swings too much. Is the front too soft? The suspension is not strong enough compared to the tires... TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 I made a lot of adjustments to the alignment this time. The size of the tires, as well. For the front, I changed it from 295 to 285. I also brought 265, just in case. I'm a bit stuck at the moment, but I hope it pushes through the cornering. I am going to try the Assist M3. SETTING RUN ASSIST M3 X NOB The driver is Nobu. LAP TIME ASSIST M3 27.592 SECONDS He scored 98 points last time after just joining the touge. The 295 tires that were the best at the circuit, the outer two centimeters weren't set. For the Assist M3,
the tire width and camber has been reset for the touge. LAP TIME ASSIST M3 26.324 SECONDS It's the best time for him so far. It's the back half top-speed section, which is important for this battle. He's still not pushing the limits, but a V8 NA 420 horsepower seems fast. Mm, this car... GAP CHECK CAMERA is really good, I like it. Drives absolutely smooth, I feel very secure. He started very well, but now we have a problem! THE VTR HELD ON THE PASSENGER SEAT FELL OFF, SO THE TEST IS SUSPENDED! Oh, gosh... TOUGE STRONGEST LEGEND DEMON KING PLAY OFF 2014 It's about 650 horsepower at the minimum, the engine, so it has more than enough power. We are with the Yokohama team, so we are using NEOVA tires. The problem is the outer diameter doesn't fit. I have tuned the ABS a bit, so it should perform well!
SETTING RUN MCR GT-R X MAX Please go ahead. When you turn left at the first corner, then the long one to the right, I think third gear would be smoother. Please keep that in mind. I haven't been in a GT-R for a while, it might be a bit too fast, here at Gunsai, but I will do my best! Oh, it's really scary to brake... So, about the brakes. When the tire size changes, the ABS system tends to freeze. It doesn't happen very often on a flat circuit, but at Gunsai, where there's a lot of vertical gravity, it happens more often! LAP TIME MCR GT-R 27.051 SECONDS Although all possible tuning was done, it still seems a bit stiff. -The brakes are frightening. -Yeah, I know. -Feels like it doesn't stop well. -Yeah, I get it. I think its because of the outer diameter. If it's dangerous, let's not do it. Well, I will try a bit more. Because the outer diameter is so different, the brake oil isn't sent to the caliper. New cars are too intelligent. Even so, Orido keeps attacking! The time is 26.473. He set a new personal record!
Although GT-R has great acceleration, the brake issue can be difficult. The steering is quite stable, but the braking is really scary. GAP CHECK CAMERA When I press the accelerator and then the brakes immediately afterwards, the car keeps going straight like crazy. But if I release the accelerator slowly and press the brake slowly afterwards, it tries to stop. But it's difficult when I wanna do it immediately. Very scary! SETTING RUN ASSIST M3 X NOB Sorry for the hustle! After fixing the seat rail on the passenger seat, he goes for another setting run! LAP TIME ASSIST M3 26.429 SECONDS This is really hard... That corner is really difficult, you know? LAP TIME ASSIST M3 26.294 SECONDS There is a strange gap, so it really depends on the timing.
If I steer too fast, I'll hit the side. I hate this corner the most in Gunsai. I shortened the rear a bit. And the ampler in the front, I made it a bit looser. Let's give it a go! Here is difficult. LAP TIME ASSIST M3 26.230 SECONDS After achieving his personal best, the instability between gaps still isn't fixed. I always feel this car pushes me outwards, and I cannot keep on the inside. Okay, okay, I get it. -Is it the front? -Yeah. I made the stretch a bit loose. Nobu attacks after tuning everything possible. Oh, I cannot turn... What is this? This is amazing! After only his second race, he makes it to the 25 second mark! Yeah, the car is very mild, and easy to navigate, so... yeah, it's a good car. But it needs more tuning for Gunsai. The gear ratio, especially. Yeah, I want the gear ratio the most!
Second and third gear are no good, so I need something in between. SETTING RUN DRIFT KING AE86 X DK Dori Dori still hasn't given up! 5.8 seconds... I want to go 5.7, or even 5.6... Where can I improve? Okay, let's go with the rhythm. He is getting excited! This kind of moment, Mr. Tsuchiya can perform a miracle! Entering the zone, controlling 86, a very difficult machine to navigate... This is Tsuchiya's rhythm. This is a miracle! He made 25.606 seconds! Maybe the front should be a bit harder. This is almost perfect, about the same as before. I don't think I can push it more than this, it needs more power. 25.6 seconds! Amazing! Yes! -Okay. -Thank you. Just amazing! At the corner in second gear, it's a bit slow at the start. If we can have a bit more power there, there are two corners using second gear.
-We can make it 0.2 seconds faster! -Okay, I got it. You can make it this far with an AE86. So please be courageous, and full of hope. Drive an AE86!
