Best Touge Car?

Aights, I'm not asking Im saying...

If you had 50,000 to blow and wanted to build the best Touge car. What would it be? What mods?

Or post a cool touge car youve seen or own

Dont hate on this thread...Its just for fun. and dreamers like me. also it will help to give ideas.


I'll start it off.

Evo VIII

Modifed suspension consisting of Coilovers and springs 6kg\mm front and 8kg\mm rear.
Upgraded turbo, Ported head. Aftermarket exausht.
Some Volk Rims with 225/40-17
CF hood, CF deck lid. Trunk interior removed.

I like to keep it simple. 4WD is a Beast on the touge so it should run better then most cars.

Because Touge is a real road... not a race track... meaning the roads are rougher then a race track.

Why you all got such BIG cars...??

The carbon fibre S2000 didn't do too great at Tsukuba.

I would use an S14 Silvia K or an FD3S Spirit Type-R.As for mods,too much to list,especially for the Silvia(piston engines have more parts).Suspension I would probably use Keioffice Type XR's.Tuning,not sure,there is a lot that would have to go into it and would have to be based on the course for optimum performance.

I belive its from the Best Motoring "Rotary Reborn"

Yea if i had a car for touge it would be a S2000 tuned with the VERY VERY light Veilside titanium teardrop exhaust.. its also VERY loud. I would want roll cage and full coilover setup and bracing. Spoon engine components. The list goes on.

You could do without ao32rs when driving on something as uncontrollable as a mountian road. Ao32rs arent very sand and water friendly.

We're talking US versions of the cars right? And are we talking grip or drift? For grip I would go with the 2004 Lotus Elise. Only thing I would do is boltons (I/H/E) and change the tires.

Dont think the US version of the Evo8 would be great because it didnt get the AYC.
