Tasty NC! They look much better when they're not on the stock 4x4 suspension.

Re: 9/19/06 adventures from japan (UPDATE: w/ barchetta pics, new parts, etc)

9/16/06
ok well i finally went to barchetta yesterday, was very hard to find. barchetta isn't really a shop, more of a house w/ a garage. according to kenji motohashi it's a "roadster owners club".. ok now the good stuff. they are in the final stages of completing a new NB and NA race console that doesn't use a shift boot. in addition they still have pedal cars and yes they can ship international. here are some pics:



in regards to the pedal car, it comes unpainted and you have to make your own lights and the wheels are printed on a computer and laminated.

you can check out the rest of the pics on my website

i also featured kenji's car w/ the specs here:

Do mean NA or NC pedal cars?
Please post ordering info?
Does Motohashi-san speak English?

Thanks,

Bill

I like that deep shifter console!!!!! When you say no shift boot is used.... does it mean the shift lever is all exposed? I wonder how that looks? But I dig that console!

yes, it doesn't have a shift cover (that leather part) the console fits directly over the rubber boot. kenji says that if some ppl did a group buy between 5-10 he could brinng the price down, maybe around 80$ w/o shipping (it would be for the non race console though, since the NA version of the race console is still in fabrication)

bill, kenji's english is pretty limited, i asked him about shipping for the pedal cars, he said it would probably be through UPS, the box is just a tad too big for EMS, he couldn't quote me on a shipping price at the time.... the NA version is MUCH smaller than the NC pedal cars, total length on the NC is maybe 6 inches more.

i have more pics to share but i've been so busy going to different shops that i haven't had time to update my website. im going to the toyota motorsports festival today so please look forward to that.

until then here is a sample of what i have seen
