    Japanese publications released 3 high quality magazines (that I know of). Aside from a few books, I don’t know of anyone else releasing dedicated 355 magazines.

    I purchased 2 from Bob, which got me hooked and looked for more. There is only one more I just received it today. Beautiful rare images. Alot of work goes into putting these images together. A must-have imo.

    The Japanese language is written in 3 forms: Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana. Kanji is basically memorized calligraphy. Hiragana is japanese words spelled similar to English alphabets. Katakana is actually “english” words spelled out with Japanese alphabets that are very similar to our own. If you take a day or two to memorize Katakana alphabets, you can read maybe 10% of Japanese because alot of advertised products are presented in english words (katakana).

    I have visual memorization of certain katakana words for car related parts just through years of scouring Japanese sites. But if you asked me to spell out a word, I probably couldn’t if my life depended on it lol. It’s really weird.

    Or you can just use Google Image translator just by pointing your camera phone over the literature and it will translate for you in real time. You don’t even have to snap a pic. Amazing technology really.

    Will post more pics soon.

    Thanks for the tip, Ken. Previously I had been translating the characters by using the Google Translate pen symbol to write the characters, but you have to be very quick. Not easy when some kanji characters have 24 or so individual "brush" strokes.

    The cover seems to say "greatest idol car ever"

    (EDIT: damn... I don't think my iPhone has the scanning feature.... too old)

    I didn't realise Kreissieg made an exhaust bypass valve... or is that not the central one?

    My bad. I should have been more specific. The Google Translator is an app. Download it and use it via the app. Pretty simple and amazing really.

    It seems to me Kreissieg offers two versions. One with a large actuator. Which one to go with? Beats me.

    Which one is the best? I'm in Japan for an assignment now and can find the first one on Yahoo Auctions for a good price but the other two are rather pricey.

    The HyperRev. Pricey because it is discontinued.

    The first one with the yellow car and other one with the red car are almost the same. Shares about 30% of the same content. Getting just one of these and finding a HyperRev should suffice :).
