He now has 2 track records in Japan. Motegi and Tsukaba. 4 times a year. He personally rents the tracks out and puts on his own races..... That he calls. "Idlers". 3 are sprint races and 1 is. 12 hour race. Last week was the 12 hour..... He had 120 cars there. Idlers stencil is an homage to his races.
Alright. Now THAT is an answer.

I still think tire stencils are kind of douchey, and even though I wouldn't put them on my own car at least now I understand that they have a significant meaning ... and that's cool by me.

I meant what I said about the car looking great. It's the first and only RWB-bodied car that got it perfect. And putting a bad-ass turbo motor in the engine compartment just makes it that much cooler.

GOOD JOB!
