Dai explained that his old S15 was the worst car he could've picked to learn the black art of drifting. It was far too difficult to drive and would snap back in a split second if you weren't fast enough with the steering. His new RSP13 in comparison is a far more suited machine for entry- to mid-level skills as its older chassis and suspension layout allows it to be far more progressive. But if want to drift properly you'll need a few bits and pieces to get the most out of your car. So Yashio Factory went to work and started by fitting a high-flow exhaust manifold, Yashio Factory exhaust, large HKS front-mount intercooler and piping and, for the cherry on the top, an HKS GT-RS turbine. Supporting modifications like a larger fuel pump, injectors, AFM and a metal headgasket guarantees a more than adequate power output in the high 300 PS region. Not content with this, Dai had Oka-chan fit a nitrous oxide fogger in the inlet plenum, which when switched on provides a boost of power that maxes out at a whopping 430 ps. Drivetrain upgrades are always a very important part when building a drift car and Dai didn't skimp on the good stuff for his Stream Z. So Nismo provided the 6-speed gearbox, Copper Mix clutch and the LSD GT Pro. Suspension modifications include a set of Ikeya Formula adjustable arms and a Yashio Factory drift oriented suspension kit. Brakes have been left standard considering the light weight of the car but are running Endless brake pads for increased brake performance. Rays Engineering provided the Gram Lights 57sx-pro wheels, which have been wrapped in Federal RS tires.

The Dee's Club Stream Z GT Jr. is a very impressive car and, as you can see from the drift pictures shot at Tsukuba, it's well suited for the track. Dai's drift skills have improved tremendously since we last saw him on the track, but he still prefers to remove the front bumper just in case something goes wrong. The pictures of the Stream Z GT Jr. with the bumper on were taken when Oka-chan was behind the wheel. Dai asked him to give us a few photo opportunities so he lit up those rear Federals with all the 430 ps the SR20 pushes out!
