I'm not so much into import tuning.
But people often have me work on their cars sometime.
I thoroughly enjoy working w/ the drivability part of the tuning segment.
Fuel maps, ignition timing, cam timing, etc...thats where the fun lies for me. Aha.

Don't drive yet but still i like to imagine my dream car.


lmao it looks like those old F1 or stock car racers in the 80s or something hahaha. but still, its a nice car


actually i believe its based off a Ferrari. I think

Toy Corolla 1987 SR5

Blacktop 4age, JIC coilovers, blah blah blah blah blah
too much to name or feel like naming


On the topic of the Speed Racer's car, I think maybe it is based off Ferrari, if it's in regards to the 1958 Ferrari 250, im sure it's a "maybe" for that company....

I know it's suppose to be japanese, but....Its sooo boxster like along the lines of a old Porsche 550 Spyder or even along the lines of the old school racing F1 Porsche 718.

Back to the main topic

I didn't tune my Lancer Evo, mainly because I don't know how to do it. If i wanted to do it, I would call a local car/body shop (which we do have one that is dedicated to tuning and visuals), and let them handle the job.

Speed Racer's Mach 5 appears to be inspired by the Chaparral 2C, by the pointed nose, open cockpit, and bulging fenders. Racer X's Shooting Star is even closer, looking like an exaggerated version of the real thing.

from wiki



In 2000, a prototype Mach 5 with actual cutting blades was produced as a concept car. 100 Production models were made in 2002 as street legal vehicle. Built on a 2001 Corvette Chassis, the body was extensively modified to look like the Mach 5. It had 345 horsepower, and cost between $75,000 and $125,000 each.

Tatsuo Yoshida got his idea for Speed Racer after seeing two films that were very popular in Japan at the time—Viva Las Vegas and Goldfinger. By combining the look of Elvis Presley's race car driving image (complete with neckerchief and black pompadour) and James Bond's gadget-filled Aston Martin, Yoshida had the inspiration for his creation.

lol good ol american inspiration

Over-priced for such weak horsepower. you could by a corvette with 500 hp and 505 lb-ft torque for only $90,000.
I'd rather buy two cars with the money, a decent daily driver and a track car which I'd have lots of money to spend on insurance, modifications or a downpayment
