DRIV­E­LINE

NZ Performance Car - - 1997 Nissan Silvia (s14) -

GEAR­BOX: Re­built fac­tory five-speed CLUTCH: Three-puk heavy-duty FLYWHEEL: Light­ened DIFF: Cusco two-way “It will get some­thing big­ger in the fu­ture, but I’m lov­ing the in­stant boost re­sponse this par­tic­u­lar turbo is giv­ing me.”

The com­bi­na­tion has been chipped and tuned by NZEFI on pump gas, which has given a great base to im­prove on.

Latisha would like to try a drift school. “I will prob­a­bly do the next one that comes up. They come up ev­ery se­cond month, and events like Street Meat are good to learn at, too,” she said.

As Latisha told us she had re­cently pur­chased an S15 Spec R as a road car, we’re damn cer­tain that this road-le­gal war­rior will soon be­come track ded­i­cated, and who would blame her? As we all know, sling­ing it side­ways, burn­ing rubber, and bang­ing doors is pretty damn ex­cit­ing — Latisha is sure to get hooked.
