Drifter built a Nissan pickup truck for off-road racing
Race car equipped with a sports car engine
Japanese driver Daiji Yoshihara is known as an American Formula Drift driver and one of the most experienced drifters in the world, but recently the athlete has been paying more and more attention to off-road racing. To give the driver the right car, the driver’s sponsor ENEOS ordered the American studio R / T Tuning to build a Nissan Frontier racing pickup truck, adapted for very, very fast driving over rough terrain.
The Nissan Frontier Pre-Runner is based on a 2006 pickup truck powered by the new Nissan Z’s VR30DDTT engine. 610 forces.
Eimer Engineering, using components from Bilstein and Eibach, as well as an axle with a differential lock designed specifically for the car, prepared a racing suspension. The pickup got Weld Racing Cinch beadlock rims and Yokohama Geolander M/T tires.
The stock brakes were replaced with mechanisms from Nissan Titan with reinforced components. The Frontier Pre-Runner racer is one of the exhibits at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, but unlike other concept cars based on the Japanese brand, it is not an official creation of Nissan.
