Shigemitsu Tanimura’s 180sx

We all get our inspiration for a certain chassis from something within. Whether it’s a past-time from an automotive family or friend, maybe from a movie or “hero” you have. We all have some sort of back story and that is always what I love to find out and read about! Shige first starting liking the 180sx chassis in high school when he saw Nomura-Ken’s 180sx; He purchased this specific car on April 2nd 2010. He thought, “Cool!” and since then he has morphed his own style and variation into what you will be reading about today! Very specific time line, I like that!

You can tell that his car is a mix-match of a few different styles that makes his own creation and taste that is really unique! Fender flares, stock bumper with cut outs, it is good! He goes to drift events both minor and major, so the car gets used a lot! So below, in the Car Setup, you will be digging into the car specifications with some pictures to match.
