Blitz has been working the last year on an R35 GT-R for drifting. It has shown up at Tokyo Auto Salon. Kris over at GT-R Blog says that the car is slated to compete in a future D1 season, but no solid dates. Maybe 2010 was what was listed by Kris.
Speaking with a Blitz representative, Kawabata-san, today we have learnt that Blitz have a desire to have Nomuken drive this car in an upcoming D1 season. While they wont commit to a definite date, 2010 was not out of the question.Seems like a pretty big waste of time to make a slower, rear wheel drive car, that would cost every bit as much as a regular GT-R.
Blitz have not yet completed the car but the removal of a significant amount of AWD drivetrain has lightened the car considerably. The job’s not completed however so they cannot give a definitive answer on exactly how much.GT-R Blog
