The Gap We Have vs. End User Needs,

been talking about this gap we have with them. a FIA approved EXAS III but with a larger waist size. or, doesnt have to be FIA. can be accommodated with SFI regulation which lot of NASCAR peeps uses as well. currently under our line of products, there is no race certified (FIA, SFI etc) seat that fits into a small car such as a Mazda Miata or a Honda S2000, where a lot of track demands are high. they can just close off their glove box and strip off the door panles maybe? lol but now the problem is the waste sizing. our seat, the typical Asian size, is not a US friendly size along with the height of the shoulder bolsters.

think big people dont drive a small car? they actually love the small cars as myself being 6’3 half sized 1/4 Korean mixed Japanesian with a waist size of 38-40. tall people drives Lotus Exige in Europe. fat peeps drives a Miata here in US. small people drives a Hummer H2 in Japan lol such a high demand big people have for a small car. and majority dont fit in our seat lol and thats why other companies such as RECAROs and SPARCOs (with FIA certification) is still a top notch seller out there in the motorsports market and we have more name on the show car market. which is sad. i’ve been wanting to close off this gap so it will open up to more variety of end users.

but, yea tooling cost and other mucho dineros seeks behind this production. how should i pull this out from them in this such recession moments… even if i was able to spot a funding source (which i already have actually), they’d be conservative and just leave a grin in my face. or even if i earn a actual GO for the production, shiet takes time to make a seat. just like the XL ZETA III we have. took 2 years, and thats a pretty darn long time frame for a end user to actually wait for the seat to come out. and users have switched to other manufactures which is understandable. i would. cant be waiting that long.

sigh.

CR-Z Interior Concept vs Final,

it would have been soooo cool if they kept the concept as is.

コンセプトのまま出してたらめっちゃカッコよかったのにぃ。

still looks good but man the concept was better.

これもイイんだけどコンセプトの方がやっぱカッコよかった。

seems like theres a lot of buttons and switches lol

ボタンとかスイッチがたくさん(笑

Toyota GT One TS020,

カッケェーなぁーこの宇宙船的な具合が。99年にル・マン2位の結果を出してるこの車輌。

トヨタはこーゆー背景があるからLFAみたいなのが出せるんだろうね。ラリーも出てた。

某R390と違って。あそこはスーパースポーツとか作らないのかな。なんかシャイだね。

現行のRホニャラララはなんかパっとしないし。社長はミスタービーンみたいだし。

フラッグシップって言うフラッグシップが無いんだよねぇ。限界か?

それにしてもホンダのHSV。チョー気になる!!

Dai’s Driving Academy 2

past Saturday was Dai’s Driving Academy 2 over at El Toro Field in Irvine, CA. on the way to the venue was raining. not a hard rain but rained for like good 10minutes or so.

先週の土曜日は稲田大二郎氏主催のDai’s Driving Academy 2と言う走行会がアーバインのエルトロで開催されました。行きしなは雨も小降りでしたね。ヒドイ雨ではなかったけど10分ぐらい降ってたかな。

whats for breakfast? of course.

朝飯は何かって?もちろん。

sausage egg muffin with hashbrown in between and orange juice from McDonalds. bought one for Kana-chan and dropped it off at her house too 🙂

マックより、ソーセージエッグマフィンにハッシュブラウン挟んでオレンジジュース。カナちゃんのぶんも買って家に置いて来たよ 🙂

it was cloudy the whole time but guess it was better to have it this way so that the track temperature stayed low. sucked for the vendors though because the booths were flying everywhere… lol our booth almost hit this one car who parked next to our booth.

一日中曇ってたねぇ。でもまぁ路面温度も下がって良かったとは思う。出展側にしたらあんま良くないけどね。風が強くてテントが飛ばされかけた…笑。ウチのブースなんか浮いたらしく、横に止めてあった車に当たりそうになったらしいよ。

what i had for lunch? got my self some tacos.

昼は何かって?タコスなんかをゲット。

all vendors recieved 4 pieces for free 🙂 thanks Inada-san!! that red sauce was maaad good.

出展者は4個まで無料 🙂 有り難うございます稲田さん!!あの赤いソースが美味かった。

below are shots from the event. i dont think i have all of the drivers though… sorry.

下はイベントの時の写真です。ドライバーさん全員は居ないですけど…ゴメンなさい。
