This car has been featured in both local and international media, and has a massive following worldwide! Faizal has built this car up from the ground and has competed in all kinds of events. We took a few minutes to interview him recently, here is what he had to say.
‘The car has made its name in the show & shine and quarter mile drags scenes with great results. It’s time to get out there and get involved in the circuit to get some track time so I thought NZ Superlap would be a great series to participate in and have fun. I have done plentiful track days out at Taupo,
Hampton Downs and Pukekohe and the car proves to be an animal all rounder.
I am in the middle of upgrading my brakes. Tyres were a bit worn so I caught up with Nick at Platinum Wheels. He got me a sharp price on my choice of tyres, Nitto NT01s. Having genuine Nismo LMGT4 wheels in 18×10.5 size all around, I wanted to make sure the tyre removal and installation was done safely without any damage to the wheels.
The team at Platinum Wheels are the only guys I would trust with these super expensive wheels. I brought the wheels over in my ute & they got them off and very carefully removed the old NT-01s which had seen lots of shows, drags, track and street driving. They fitted the new tyres very quickly while I waited. I am quite impressed with the PW crew and the work they do.’
