Panspeed FD3S Version IV/V/VI - Tsukuba Time attack
Among many rotary tuners in Japan, a small,veteran shop Panspeed from Saitama prefecture has been around building cars for street,circuit and drift. Very reasonable tuning shop that emphasizes on conservative tuning and reliability for customers.
They have been trying to beat the record title for fastest tuned FR around Tsukuba.
In the early years, the shop spent lots of research on the circuit and went through many various changes since then.
Early 2003-2004, the car had quick lap times behind the rival RE Amemiya TD06SH-25G powered FD3S, in the 59' second range ,Quite an achievement! but with the odds against them, they ended up having mechanically failures leading to an engine fire, that quickly disqualified the car.
A year later, they returned with a newly built FD3S, stronger , faster!
But In 2005/2006 - Driven by GT Driver Akira Iida. It Breaks into 0:57:15, a year later more testing and tuning and they achieved a 0:56:8 seconds! Again the car met more problems when the car spun out and hit the wall right before the Dunlop corner in Tsukuba.
2007 - The year of 07/07/07
With the car completely redone using a LE-Mans style from the help of AB Flug.
More weight reduction, and running 265/35 18x10.5/11 CE28ns. It ends up breaking its own record, with a newly set track record of 55.603!! Making it the fastest FR car on Tsukuba using street tire/factory chassis/non tube frame. This is certainly a car I will follow for more record breaking runs in 2008.
