Seeker Civic R FK8vs. MCR AMG A45 Gunsai surface stays in semi-wet even rain stopped. Honda vs. Mercedes showdown at the summit. For tournament final, Honda vs. Mercedes, sounds like Forumula-1 battle. Let's go for it. This is Final. I know no one expect 4WD stay behind to Front Drive. I won't lose this. Battle is on Initial D style, lead and chase system. Our car is a lot lighter, it would be an advantage.
FF or 4WD, how they battle? I'm so excited. I guess weight may affects the battle. And, you will see great battle, for sure. Of course I'd prefer watching this, not driving. Seeker takes lead at 1st run. Start, now. A45 seems faster at acceleration. Civic R has to develop the gap wider using 260kg of weight advantage. BUT. At the moment, it's easy to keep this distance. On the other hand, it's hard time for Dori-dori. Taniguchi almost grabs his tail. But, He is so fast here. Mr.Tsuchiya made very fast turn there. He makes the gap in a moment. Who expect that? Seeker wins 1st run. I was left little away, that's Mr.Tsuchiya's great effort. I got this battle. How fast Civic is. Maybe this car has more speed, but Mr.Tsuchiya showed his unbelievable speed at the left 90deg. corner.
So at 2nd run, I'm sure he'll show strong effort as much as 1st run. The left hander 90deg. vend is one of the turning point of this battle course, Where restarts battle again. So traction performance over there makes the battle big difference. I see Taniguchi has turned his switch on. That is why he might make big start. Good to see the next battle. Good to just "see"? Of course not driving. All right, I'll make it. If he gets next run, Seeker will be the champion. This is last chance for NOB. Start, now. MCR A45, what a speed! NOB keeps his mouth shut. How serious he is. Dori-dori has to get closer. He's also so serious. But, no, he got big over steer. No, sideway. Battle goes for A45. MCR A45 develops enough gap. He carries his words. Or AMG has incredible potential.
I made sideway, 2nd turn. Mr.Tsuchiya showed unbelievable speed at left-90deg. corner just after the hairpin at 1st run. I was tail to nose till that turn, but he started left away there. His skill left me there, but I got back following corners bit by bit. So, his unbelievable speed at the left corner sets this battle. - Showdown at the summit. - Sure. - 2 liter turbo. - 2 liter turbo cars showdown at the summit. I'm amazed with that result which is beyond my expectation. To be honest, I thought Civic has some advantages considering vehicle weight and so on. Mr.Tsuchiya backed here with big gap at 1st run, Mr.Taniguchi wants to say something about that. Mr.Tsuchiya is, unbelievably fast. - I kept tail-to-nose distance towards that corner. - Ah, yeah, I see. At that particular corner, Mr.Tsuchiya showed blasting speed. Left turn soon after the hairpin? - Yes, 90 deg. - Yes, yes. - You have almost same speed till that 90deg. - Yes, tail-to-nose, it was. But the 90deg., he just left me and kept his gap. - That is why there seemed big gap at the goal line. - Yes, that was what happened. 2nd run, I made a big side way. Approaching 2nd turn after the 1st turn, I found over speed there and touched brake that lead a big slide.
So I was left away there. AMG also breaks rear at the exit, but 4WD enables to accelerate even with tail sliding. That is the essential difference between 2WD and 4WD. How much does it cost to make this? It was 1million yen and little more for the parts. - OK, if you compare the costs, - Yes. 10million car vs. 5million car plus 1 million for tuning. That is the story. If you do that on Civic, you can make the battle draw. I lost at 2nd run because of my mistake, but I could have run just as 1st run without such side way, the battle would be so tough one. Yes, it would be, I'm amazed. - Under that condition, - Tough one. You did too much serious under such condition. I'm always serious. Well, this is the most dangerous condition, road surface. Oh, yeah, extremely dangerous. - So, the result is, - Yes. 2 liter turbo showdown at the summit, finished with Draw. Awesome. This tough battle must be amazing to you all viewers. Incredible. Can't lose next battle if I have chance. I decided to come back here with A45. 2 liter turbo cars, the main stream of sport car.
We cannot take our eyes off from them.
