How are 3 reasonable cars? Well. Yes. BMW is good, instead of that, it's little heavier. Reasonable cars are usually old ones, and they're light in weight. Lightweight always brings dynamic performanceto the car. Heavy cars move slower all the time. Cars at a time move quickly because of their lightweight. That's why I like them. Lightweight is important. Yes, that's a kind of a weapon. Here it comes. What is that? Here it comes. You said lightweight is the justice. Well, lighter is better, I say. How about one of the world' lightest? It's maybe lightest in the world. Certainly, this is Caterham. Where is Fujiko from "Lupin the 3rd"? She isn't available today. No way. The lightest Caterham is K-car. Wow. Why don't you take a ride? How heavy is this car? It's 490kg's. 490kg ? Caterham 160, the adventitious entrant, has yellow registration plate showing 660cc engine displacement. K6A engine for Suzuki Jimmny has only 30kg
and produces 80psbeyond Japanese self-regulated 64ps power limit because this is imported car. The name 160 is 60ps for 1 ton weight. K-car regulation demands this Seven 110mm narrower than normal by converting fenders. Narrow. It is tight. This is the taste of Caterham, I know. One more thing. When I put may hands on steering, my elbow is outside the body. Caterham will fit him, Lupin the 3rd, I believe. Ok, Let's go. Look, you can't even close the window. This is fun. Wow, it's cold now. That's so cold now. Woooow, it's so light, light. This car has narrower tire 155width to enable low speed drifting. I wish Mr.Tsuchiya to enjoy drifting from low speed. I have to rise up my elbow to avoid hitting body. Shitting stroke is so short, very short.
Wow, suspension is moving. I can see the tires moving, it s visible. Car shakes at down shifting. Dori-dori seems to need more time to get used to. It's not easy one. I have to get used to it. How is the time? 30 sec. Let me take another lap. You can make it once you get used to. Nothing different from your wife. You should not make rapid movement to this car. Maybe because of this tire, anyway rapid move is strictly prohibited. And you do not kick the brake pedal. If you kick the pedal, only the intensive load point will be compressed and crushed. G-force is same topic. Raise the G-force slowly, no rapid gain. 30 sec again at 2nd attack. It doesn't have enough power to drift. You have to get used to this limp move. Roll moment and tire compliance are unmatched. So you have to adjust them by your driving.
It has comfort ride contrary to its appearance. It seems so fun. I'm so happy because I have long-term respect to Caterham. Orido has weird taste and he has been interested in this car. Oh, my God. It was hairbreadth escape ! His human ABS worked well. Orido has decided to break 30sec for Justin who drives this car from his office. So, Orido tries one more lap. But, he failed. If you can wear better tire makes this car different, drastically. Driving this car is absolutely sport. Is my head OK ? Does it protect me ? Nob takes his part to break 30sec. It will enjoy control once you understand this tire. Rear tires are leaned so much at corners. This is Nob's job, he marks 29.038sec. Is there anything new for this time? I refine the resetting to provide middle range little stronger, it's better I think. O.K. Why didn't you do that last time? Sorry for that. Dori-king AE86 is applied ECU setting,
which has been left a while since large-diameter exhaust manifold for 7A-G. Dori-king makes maximum attack AE86, maybe because he's encouraged with reasonable FR attacks. But AE86 wears half-treaded NEOVA due to the schedule is just demonstration with Irene beside him. I know it becomes 26sec's. It is 27sec flat. I thought I broke 27 sec. It revs up quickly where it used to stick, I feel. I'm not talking about actual power. But the response, it is a lot better. It's improved day by day. Sector time of today’s cars is as above. New vs. cheap FR's Impression Ranking. It is rather rude to say "cheap". Yes, I should say "reasonable". Right, they're reasonable ones. Yes sure. Your will be cheap in charm or youth, OK? Oh, no. I'll keep trying to be reasonable. 5th place, is Caterham. This is what we can introduce special K-car,
yellow plate. It should be rewarded that this is ranked 5th. Tire makes our evaluation different. Yes, the tire. Feelings would be changed a lot with certain tire. Yes, it will. I know that Caterham chassis itself give more solid feeling. That's right. 4th rank. Yes. BMW M235i This... New car... New car gets only 4th. I guess, this might be a good car. But it needs to cut off electronic devices completely for sure about. It does not allow us to play particular FR driving pleasure. So, "M" is not in need. Well, is that right ? 235 without "M" is better for our purpose. It will be fun this become second hand some years in time. Tuners does their customize and this car act as pure FR. Next, The 3rd place. Points are so close for the place. Same point for 2nd? Roadster is the 3rd. Which one gets same point ? Another 2nd place is, S2000 early model. This S2000 is just stock, no tuning is done. It's really great to get this point with 140,000km mileage. I have no word other than great.
This Roadster has been done a lot of work on it. But I did notice this has rack of steering center. I could give 95 point or so. This car reacts nothing even if you shake steering wheel during such corners. I did feel sharp steering center. Was it the center or what? Feelings between us are so different, maybe opposite. For me this car didn't have sense of Roadster at all, this is more like AE86. Oh, yeah. I got it. He is AE86 specialist. Now you know that. It reminds me AE86. It was AE86. How fast your AE86 is, Mr.Tsuchiya. 27sec flat. That's equivalent to Roadster. I tell you, his AE86 loses the Roadster just a flash. How big flash is it ? Mr.Tsuchiya's AE86 is 27.080sec. Roadster is 27.064sec. Oh, 2 one-hundredth second. The time tells you nothing, it was the old tire used so many times. It's easy with new tire. Ah, it was BECAUSE of tire. Huh. OK, the 1st place. The 1st place is, Very, extremely reasonable RX-8 from LEG. Is this really reasonable in price? I remember RX-8 is very new. It came appear just couple of years ago. No, this car starts at 2003.
Many of tuning parts are already installed when the car is on market. Right, you don't have to buy them. Certainly. You can buy this car at 800,000yen and spend 200,000yen for LSD, for instance. What are you doing here Mr. SPOON? Hey, there is nothing your business. Promoting this, Rigidcollar. No cars installed Rigidcollar today. Nothing to do with them, don't you ? Well, for that S2000, Did you put Rigidcollar? No, but we did some refreshment maintenance. Oh, no. Now we can't say that's normal. Yes, you can. Because we did replace normal clutch to normal one. What about Rigidcollar ? No we didn't. We have tried. But we were told this contents only for normal. Yes ! it was so stiff as if Rigidcollar in it. You don't tell me that. There is something happened at this clutch maintenance. What it that ? I heard of some bugs there. Not bugs, there were some oil leakage. Where does the oil from ? Differentials. I see. 140,000km without overhaul can leak oil. No problem with such leakage, it's not draining. By the way, I was surprised with RX-8 on the 1st.
I was surprised that RX-8 has such high performance both price and speed. Yes. I guess viewers may have same feeling. Battle is those two. RX-8 and S2000. And AE86 will chase and watch them closely. What ? Closely? Don't fool on me ok? Battle system is initial D style. 130,000km mileages S2000 without any customize. Everyone knows this is good car. I'll give my best. Look which "reasonable" wins this battle. Damn noisy, that's the cheap one behind of me. I will do my best. I will chase you guys sooo close. It's not just a camera car. Orido and Nob gently brings their machine carefully. Oh no, that dangerous one there. Dare you ! 1st trial Orido S2000 starts first. S2000 has some advantage at start and acceleration. Hey look, I'm faster on corners. Go, go, go,go. Just gooooooo. I'm fast on corners !
This car is good at this. Go ! Go, go, go, go ! RX-8 keeps lead to the hairpin corner. Dori-king AE86 chases its tail. Yes, I got him, I got him. From now on, it needs more acceleration. VTEC power is still there after 130,000km Nob keeps his right foot to the floor. RX-8 wins 1st trial. Wooooooooowwww. All right, yes. RX-8 has very good head-turning property at timing section, it came closer so tight. It loses at acceleration phase after the hairpin. AE86 is the fastest, in fact. You're just camera car. RX-8 has very good balance but power. Orido's plan seems to keep side by side to the end of the straight. S2000 is clearly faster at straight. Corner is, RX-8. RX-8 leaves S2000 behind after just a single corner with tremendous cornering speed. RX-8 is flying away. The eight is developing his lead. OK, S2000 is now far behind. RX-8, Nob and LEG with Hiroshima-spirit blows up everything.
S2000 can't even battle the eight. LEG RX-8 makes the perfect win. Oh, AE86 is also soooo behind. Hey, watch out ! Well, I tell you, we should remember LEG all the time. Yes, we will have to. We have to keep eyes on. I can say this car with current condition is better than Amemiya's. That's right, faster than Amemiya. By the way, I have tested the latest 2012 RX-8 at Okayama Kokusai Circuit, I assumed a lot of improvement. I want to battle with this. Well, how about to gather and battle RX-8s? 8 and 8, that will be fun. Shall we do RX-8 World Championship ? Shall we ? Anyway, this power with RX-8 does not scare drivers. Just fun. Do you remember the question from our viewer that is this OK to practice with 100,000km S2000 ? I say that's ok, very good choice. You're right, that'll be good training without any tuning. Yes, that is good choice. You can have fun both drift and grip. I hope you to practice with those great machines. Today's winner is LEG RX-8 !
