just read this article on yahoo! news thingy. YOSHIKI from X Japan now is the producer for the DOME NSX. whats more surprising is that he is the current executive producer of ROCK STAR Energy Drink. btw, ROCK STAR has been sold in Japan since September 15th 2008.
DOME came up with this new Le Mans race car with a closed body in the same category as… as… sorry forgot lol. but yea they will be classfied in the upper level. think it was ADUI and others. i heard BMW will be entering this years Le Mans as well… we’ll see. but yea, S102. for DOME, it will be their 16th challenge to the Le Mans. the engine is JUDD’s (http://www.engdev.com/) 5.5Liter V10 N/A. transmission is from XTRAC (http://www.xtrac.com/), 6 speed sequential shifter. tire is Michelin (http://www.michelinman.com/). with the closed body, the drag level is 9% reduced compared to their S101.5 and their downforce have increased by 18%. this closed body looks like an space ship. the driver will be Daisuke Ito, Tatsuya Kataoka, and Yuji Tachikawa. thought the drivers will be from Toyota teams. but guess not. Mr. Mori from DOME wanted “Daisuke Ito” to be the main driver for S102.
