We have your summer reading sorted: NZPC 194 out now

December 27th, 2012 by Marcus

We trust everyone had a great Christmas holiday and will be hanging out for something to read as you lounge around over the summer period. NZPC 194 is in shops now and bursting at the seam with content. On the cover of our summer edition is Shane Poulton’s world class Nissan S15, powered by an HKS stroker 2.8 litre RB26 capable of pushing out figures as high as 600kW and rocking one of the best suspension packages in the New Zealand drift scene. Cars of this calibre don’t come along often.

We spent a late night in the studio shooting Jason “MR12A” Treloar’s Mazda Series One RX-7. A self built labour of love over the past ten years it’s seen countless engine combinations culminating in the current combo port, all the while staying true to his number plate, with the little, often forgotten 12A. Find out why this RX-7 has won best first generation RX-7 at the Nationals numerous times.

We were trackside for the first ever Red Bull Drift Shifters, the most insane event of 2012. We chat to the drivers and get the inside word on Mad Mike’s crazy invention.

AE85’s dont come much cleaner than Aucklander Dillon Grant’s. The term inch perfect is a fitting description.

We check out Jason Horn’s RWD GSR Lancer. This small tyre monster has one thing on its mind, and that is achieving an eight second pass, to get there it’s packed with a 672 kW nitrous fed 4G63.

Checkout all the action from the first NZPC Summer Tour Stop at Meremere. The weather may not have been perfect but that didn’t stop the masses coming out

We have all the panel crunching action from Round Two of the Cody’s D1NZ National Drifting Championship. A custom built course at the Toll/United yard in Whangarei, it took its toll on the cars. Who won, who lost and who did it in style, we have it all.

We tag along with Oldschool.co.nz as they get a personal tour by Rod Millen of his Leadfoot Ranch.

We also take a ride in 150ohp of NZ record breaking twin turbo V10 supercar known as LAMBRO

Find all this and plenty more in the latest edition of New Zealand Performance Car and don’t forget that our poster book is in-store at the moment as well. so grab a copy of both next time your shopping. Alternatively you can subscribe online and have the magazine delivered direct to your door while saving a ton of cash www.giveamag.co.nz. Have a safe holiday everybody and see you all in the New Year.
