NZ Performance Car

NZ Performance Car

No 277 January 2020

Since 1996 New Zealand Performance Car has been the voice of the country’s modified import car scene. It was there to see the first import 10-second quarter mile run, there when the first official drift battle ensued, there when the first show trophies were handed out, and there to bring NZ its very first Super Lap time attack event. Each month the very best of NZ’s modified import car scene is served up. It’s New Zealand’s number 1 selling monthly motoring magazine and is New Zealand’s import performance authority and for good reason…it leaves the others for dust.

keeping that fire alive

Mankind has a wicked skill at reading the vibe put off by a fellow human. Perhaps it’s a trait left over from our caveman days, when body language played a huge role in how we communicated, and not being able to read someone could result in your death very quickly. Well, these days, lives are a little less strenuous for the average joe, but we do still carry this trait within. The read that I get off some older people really puts the shits up me, and has done for as long as I can remember — not because I feel threatened in any way, but because I certainly don’t want to end up as one of them. I’m sure you all know these types of people — those old bastards who…

this month online

Boy, has there been a whole lot of bullshit going down in the wonderful world of social media this month. I’ve seen the age-old argument of ‘genuine’ v. ‘fake’ wheels reignited for the 10,000th time and descend into a mud-slinging fest as though those involved have vested interest within the respective companies; the demand that everyone #respectallbuilds; and people once again not understanding that if you don’t own a car and haven’t been given permission to touch and/or sit on it — then don’t! That’s a lot of going-ons to unpack in a small editorial, the kind of stuff that I could write whole essays about, so instead I’ll just rattle off a few thoughts and feelings that I jotted down throughout the month. Regardless of where you sit on the scale…

new pb for harvey

If you ever wondered what goes through Rod Harvey’s mind mid five-second pass, we have the answer; “This motherf##ker is flying”. Well, at least that’s what was going through his mind during the recent 5.69@259mph during the Atlantic Oils East Coast Thunder at Sydney Motorsport Park. The pass wasn’t without some drama, with the Yuasa Camry touching the limiter just before the finish line, and one of the chutes tearing, which at just shy of 260mph is a scary prospect. Lucky Rod was able to pull it up undamaged. Leading into the event, the addition of a new slightly bigger front cover on the turbo, and a few set-up changes to the clutch clearly paid off for the team and Rod says the data shows low 5.60s are a real possibility,…

nick cassidy wins super gt final, loses championship

With consecutive wins and strong placings across multiple rounds, including winning the final at Twin Ring Motegi (2–3 November), TOM’S Racing driver Kiwi Nick Cassidy, has fallen just two heartbreaking points short of taking out his second Super GT series title. Although Kazuya Oshima and Kenta Yamashita came into the final as favourites, with a strong seven-point lead over Cassidy and co-driver Ryo Hirakawa, it nearly didn’t go the way of the Japanese duo after a controversial incident. Yamashita sent his car down the inside of Yuhi Sekiguchi, with the former locking up and the pair coming out of the corner side by side before entering the final chicane, where they collided and skated off the track. No official action was taken, and the pair returned to the track. Yamashita sprinted away…
