JIC USA would like to announce that JIC Japan's famous D1GP Mazda RX-8 has hit the US shores today. It boasts a 13b twin turbo engine swap that puts down 500hp. Piloted by Kouchi Yamashita, it will the first time that this legendary RX-8 will be competing in the US! Come by and check it out at the D1GP event on March 4th at Irwindale Speedway!

Also, representing the JIC USA side, will be Yamashita-san's former Drift car, the JIC USA S15 piloted by Formula Drift driver, Kenji Yamanaka. Known as "Yama-ken", he will represent the USA side with his agressive style and charasmatic personality. Remember to stop by and cheer on these drivers!

Funny thing is that we helped our Grenade RX-8 is one of our sponsored vehicles.

Anyways, we are going to be campaigning our Nissan S15 with Kenji Yamanaka and our Nissan 350z (the one that was used in '03 D1) with a TBA driver. We are also in talks about another vehicle as well. It is sitting in the back of JIC USA's garage ready to be outfitted with the right stuff.

Nice-looking RX8.

I notice most hotrodded RX8's have engine swaps. Is anyone working with the Renesis or is it simply too new for upgrading at this point in time?
