Conversations with Kei Miura

The Hiroshima Bomber

TRA-Kyoto. It may be hard to stand out from the rest with the growing number of S-Chassis on a 6666 designed kit. Don’t get me wrong, but I still believe that Rocket Bunny kits really do look good, if not the best. But Takashi Mine‘s add-ons made his PS13 distinct with his personal touches. On…

The Runzip Duo

During my recent trip to Japan I made it sure to meet and learn new tricks from the customizers and tuners. One of them is a Runzip Design which is in Fukushima. They specialize on bolt-on aero kits and coilover set-up. A day before OKJP, its designer Atsushi Honda together with his friends dropped by Fuji to…
