In reality, I’m really excited I found this thing, I just had to share it with someone. Already tipped Bradley Brownell about it, aswell as JIC (builder) and Tyler McQuarrie (driver). I’m really f-ing excited about this, since nobody else has seem to realized that this is THE car.
Here’s a parts list Jon Kaneda (owner of JIC/builder of the car) posted on a forum before he sold the car in 2011:
and here’s the current listing from a shop in Lithuania called TRT Motorsport:
The parts list is a dead ringer- the suspension has been changed to be track focused, but the engine (despite TRT claiming to have overhauled it- I doubt it) and everything is still there.
IMO it kinda looks like TRT is being really shady. The car is a 1996 Eurospec RS, not a real GT2... And they look like they’re taking credit for parts JIC custom fabrication, and they’re not properly disclosing the cars history. I mean- despite them claiming the car was overhauled only 3 years ago, they haven’t posted a single picture on their IG of it being worked on.
But here’s the custom intercooler on the JIC:
And heres the “custom” Intercooler on the TRT listing:
I mean even the creases are the same.
Even the order of the parts list is pretty much identical save for the suspension, which had been changed out for Ohlins, and 997 cup brake calipers.
