Powerhouse Amuse Touge Monster "Tsukuba Project" from "hula" on Minkara

#1

Pretty amazing aero development on what I believe is the original Amuse demo car, purchased for time attack use with continued development over the years. Posted up by user "hula" on Minkara.

Very large and elaborate front splitter setup developed by Under Suzuki, and a giant Voltex Type 11 chassis mounted rear wing.

And an engine developed by K-Tech.

Has run under the 1 minute mark at Tsukuba and will likely bring that time down even more. Love the way this car enters the final corner. From what I can tell the owner seems to be trying to chase down the ASM S2000 NA Tsukuba time.



Would be awesome to get the owner posting on here, so anyone who speaks Japanese (better than I do) feel free to spread the word! Thanks to @road_to_amuse for the heads up. :tipwink:

As far as I know, Stradale in Japan does a lot of the work on the car now.

Those are all the posts I saw on their blog related to this car in particular, I highly recommend everyone page through all the S2000 related posts though. Some of their customers cars are just incredible.

I'd love to know more about the K-Tech engine overhauls, that dude seems to be the absolute best at what he does.

Nice! I think it put in some really good times recently. Sub 58 I think.

Yeah I believe it was purchased from Amuse by the current owner.
