I know that you have done a lot of work on Z, but you spent the most of your time on Evo. What did you do on them and what else is planned?
350Z is tuned mostly for drifting, so I was working primarily on functional things such as: sport suspension, hydraulic hand brake, steering wheel, clutch, differential, direct suction, stabilizers, alu wheels, exhausts, splitters, additional oil cooler and in summer I'm going for the racing seats.
As for Evo, I was able to buy it already with a tuned engine and a lot of functional modifications such as sharp pockets, better pistons, valves, Evo 9 turbocharger, modified suction flap, direct suction, turbo timer, additional alarms, stronger silentblocks engine and chassis.
Well, as often happens, the appearance of the Evolutions is not the first priority, so the car was quite battered. It also began to corrode and the coating was in poor condition so I decided to get it “slightly” together with the guys from STR garage. We only agreed to re-shine the coating at first... In the end we rushed into it so much that only the bare bodywork remained. Therefore we went for a full renovation. All the unusable parts were exchanged for the new ones and the rest was renovated to look like new. After an eight-month long run and hundreds of man-hours in the garage, the result is worth it!
Other modifications I made to the car includes: hydraulic hand brake, brakes, full coating, racing wheels, new chassis.
Thanks to the collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Ostrava you can try different types of their cars. Which one do you like the most?
Every AMG has its thing. I had the opportunity to try them out both on asphalt and ice ring thanks to the wonderful cooperation with Mercedes-Benz Ostrava. My favorites are definitely A45 AMG a E63 AMG. E63 gave me goose bumps even the day after the test.
What is your dream car?
I love lots of cars, but I would very much like to own Nissan Skyline R34 GTT. Yes, of course, R34 GTR is a universal idol, but its price rises every day. So if you wanted to buy it, you would have to hide it under a tarp and just look at it.
My problem is that I would like a lot of "dream cars", so let's just go over this question or I may start going through the ads again.
You are really passionate about drifting nowadays, do you plan to race?
I'd love to attend some drift events, but the problem is that the car needs to be especially adjusted for the races. Secondly, I play almost every weekend and therefore it is quite difficult for me to get to these shows even as a spectator. To bring me a little closer and to promote the development of local drift culture I came up with the project Furt Bokem! (Still sideways!). It’s becoming more and more popular and allows us to push some of the drivers at least a bit further.
Anyway, in the future, I would very much like to own my own car and race, but right now the DJing is a priority and I love it!
Thanks very much for a great interview!
