Ryosuke’s S13

Ryosuke has been driving S13 chassis’ since he was 18 years old and this particular car for 2 years. I didn’t get the exact “why” as to him choosing the S13 chassis but he seems to like them a lot. …And who wouldn’t like them? They are light weight, great handling, and awesome aftermarket support. That’s why the 240sx has been so popular for so long in the U.S. In my opinion, Ryosuke’s S13 is what the American street-style scene is trying to be. And I say “trying to be” because his driving style is one of the top. Being able to hold large angle and smooth transitions while having the aesthetic looks of a wide body kit and deep wheels, matching! I’m sort of rambling because I keep looking at the mod list in my WordPad as I write this intro and it’s just beautiful. So many good mods, so many good parts! The car was completely stripped down and revamped!

Before we get to the Car Setup, Ryosuke had this gold color 180sx. I asked why he had gotten rid of it and he said “Because the body was already at it’s limit”. He had owned that car for 4 years.
