I'm a big fan of Initial D. Tak's Trueno is the first Mini-z I bought and is the reason why I am now a MINI-Z Junky!!! Here are some of my Initial D bodies I own. I did change some of the bodies to look more like the ID anime. for example. KT FD didn't have a front plate so I made one also his rims were Black in Stage 3 and 4. Ry's FC in Stage 4 had White 5 star rims. Zack's GTR is from a white R32 body I got from the store here and add the McLaren Rims.

Projects in the Works
Team Emperor Evos: Kyle and Hawks (I'm Gutting an EVO III model to fit on a mini-z EVO VI body
Bunta's STI Subaru
Kylte's Black RX-7 Type R [FD3S]

In the Initial D Manga and Anime that are unknown team members of the Redsuns that are mentioned. So I made one of those "unknown" 2nd stringer of the team.

downloads ;) i didn't get them, they were forwarded to me. i will not take part in kaza, torrent or any site like that. the potential for trouble is not worth the risk.

There is a Japanese Mall by my house that sells the Japanese Versions on DVD's. Japan is on Stage 4 ep.14. I got them there. The TokyoPoP's ID are Way behind in the stages. You can download them with Bit-Torrent but Arch2b is right, not worth the risk.

i just bought and watched vol. 10 last night! i've already seen up to ep. 5 of stage 4 but i like watching ti with english dialogue as well.

I do Like the English verson better also. the guy who does the English Dub for Tak fits the character better then the Japanese voice, it's to deep. You have to see ep.6of 4th Stage!!! I think by far was the Best Race yet.

The open song is called Dogfight by Move. It's from there album BOULDER. There is a new Initial D Music Collection that just came out called "Initial D BEST SONG COLLECTION 1998-2004" it's on there.

I have that track(Dogfight) on MP3, I love it. The theme songs for the english version. I've seen the trailers and the music is mixed better on those than the show. I have tried my DVD's on different players with the same results.

Yeah!!! the girl singer is Hot Looking. The song is awesone. who would of thought that rapping in Japanese would sound pretty good. they pull it off well.

I have some cheap DVD player call Shinco but its NTSC free. it can play anything.
I heard the Apex DVD are also NTSC free. you can get them at Circuit City.

how did you manage to get it via mp3? rip from the dvd? can that be done?

HammerZ
2005.04.20, 04:45 PM
I D/L'ed it someplace. but it could be ripped from a CD. I don't have the software to get it from a DVD. The funny thing is I don't remember where I D/L'ed it from.

I also have the lyric's, it is in Japanese. I wish I had the English translation in these.

no rx7 yet :( they're hard to find and even harder to find unmolested and without some retarded body kit on them. i'm taking my time shopping for one.

i guess you picked up an s4? where did you get it? i used to work for Legend Audi/Porsche in amityville. occasionally i'd get a chance to take an s4 for a ride. i hope you got the 6-speed.

Good guess! 2004 5k miles from Bernardsville Audi. I was getting sick of not having a warranty anymore and 8 miles per gallon plus the dwindling offroad jaunts made me think about looking into a real car...I always loved the S4 and loved it even more when they threw a 345hp V8 in it.

Yes it is the 6SM...I think convertible and automatic are a crime for an S4...ok for the average 4 ;) . Being a former Audi/Porsche/VW dealer employee...any opinion?


The FDs have always been another fav of mine but yes they are oftened tuned higher than a fiddle (too much Dukes of Hazzard) and once you blow one thing on a rotary it all blows like a stack of dominoes. An ok yes...no need for the gheto kits either.

careful where you leave it! i know 2 people who have had their s4's stolen. and if they can't get in the car they will steal your xenon headlights. it sounds silly but it's true.
my bro in law bought an 05 with the insurance money from the theft. he got the automatic and tries to justify the tiptronic is the same as a manual trans :rolleyes: then i begin to point and laugh at him :) the new s4 is much faster than the previous generation but the auto just kills me.

No, they make the new one in 6 speed too but they're jsut coming into the states. The 2004-2005's ahve the same power as teh new ones too...its the pre 2004 that have the twin turbo get up. What year was your bro inlaws? I know that pre 2004 the lockign mechanism was easy to disable and WIDELY stolen. Heard they solved teh problem...hoping its true...also hoping the avant is a bit of a theft deterrent :p .

S4 triptronic is ok...for some :rolleyes: not sure it would make my blood rush...but take away the clutch and shifter then I guess its the same :p . Ill spare the analogy to a different gender's car :D .

I think it might be my dig-cam why they look really brite. there not stock mini-z kit lights. they are crap LEDs from radioshack but they do the job. :D

btw, i bought 1-3 from rs for $5 i think it was. i wonder if they ever had other issues/bundles?

i started my collection with the rs set. They came out about the same time the id zipzaps came out. i would not be suprised if those two events are related ;)
$10 is a bit steep for a book i finish in 1 night!

2005.05.11, 03:31 PM
i've even saved a search for ebay but never see them for reasonable prices :( you do see alot of the rs bundle listed for twice or triple what rs is selling them for.

if i could find a series fo them for cheap, i would gladly pick more up.

anyone interested in loaners? i've already lent my 1-3 to chuckyluv. i'd like to read any others.....

The anime is great for visuals of the races that the books can't capture, but the Manga books have way more plots of all the characters the anime leaves out. It even explains the technical information about the cars during each race that the anime lightly explains. It's good to experience book Anime and Manga.

anytime you download copywrited material you run the risk of it either being illegal or getting tracked/caught doing it illegally. i personally do not visit/participate with or in any public download sites, other than something like driverguide.com which can come in handy if your maintaining old pc's.
