Seriously consider removing the RWB badging from this car. What you have done is orders of magnitude above and beyond an RWB bolt-on body kit. Give credit where credit is due.

There’s really only two things going on with your build that I don’t possess... the ability to conceptualize the stunning modifications, and the ability to execute to bring them to life.

Sometimes I get the urge to throw my guitar across the room. Right now I feel like I should throw my car.

I agree, this is a huge undertaking, your work defines the word "custom". With the RWB badging on, at a distance, people will be saying " Nakai-san did it again..."

Taking nothing away from RWB cars, because they were indeed super cool before they became a dime-a-dozen underpowered 964s and 993s.The serious ones that lurk around Tsukuba are still some of the coolest 911s in my opinion.

But yours is a true labor of love. I suppose it's a peek into your personality as a humble guy that was inspired by Nakai's work, but dude; you made it your own!

Recent RWB cars are basically a well-sorted aesthetic formula of two or three body style choices, a given bolt-on suspension, wheels and tire setup, and some roughly trimmed fenders. Hardly as intense as your car. Even the build videos are played-out. He arrives, has a smoke, works his butt off while hangers-on hang out and pose, smokes some more, then a bit more, caulks the trim with his bare fingers (yeah, that's right, who needs gloves when using silicone products...) Then they all go for a drive to marvel at 264hp trying to use all the grip that a set of 335s can provide.

But again, NICE WORK!!! Can't wait to see some video of this car in motion! It won't have any issues spinning the fat rear tires!

I want to thank the American traders (Turbokraft, Elephant Racing,TPC Racing...) because without them, projects like this, would not be possible.
You are for me, the best in the world in the manufacture of Porsche parts.

In Europe, we are far behind you and you are an example for us ...

So, I drink to your health and to the America health.

Thank you friends

At first seeing the screen name Yoda Master seemed a little presumptuous. After looking at your work, I see it is well deserved. Bravo!
