Over the past 7 years we have featured Yoshiyuki Hamasaki’s FD3S RX-7 multiple times to demonstrate progress, and share the changes with everyone. You might of first seen this in a 2014 feature, 2016 feature, 2018 feature, and other rotary coverage features in 2019 and 2020. You can learn more about Yoshiyuki from his past features if you are interested. Hope you enjoy Yoshiyuki Hamasaki‘s 2001 Sunburst Yellow FD3S RX-7 from Takasago, Japan as much as we do. Everything is nicely done as always, and nothing is over the top.
Yoshiyuki’s front end hasn’t change much over the years, which is not a bad thing at all. The EUROU front bumper and EUROU front under lip spoiler just looks so good. One thing that is unique is the embedded side markers from the Toyota 86 on the EUROU front bumper, and deleted OEM fender side markers. This is a very nice touch.
The biggest changes come from Yoshiyuki’s new wheels and suspension. The wheels are Russian made, Desmond Regamaster EVO II, in 18×10.5 +22 front and 18×10.5 +7 rear effectively after spacer with 285/30/18 tires all around. Suspension is set with the Japanese premier suspension brand, T-Demand, with their PRO Damper 80s, and front 30k and rear 26k spring rating.
Another big change is from bringing back the Mazdaspeed A-Spec Type II rear spoiler wing, and combining that with the Carshop Glow carbon ducktail.
The lower portion of the rear end still has the DAMD rear diffuser painted gunmetal, but with a one-off Massaw dual muffler (with solenoid valve). Another small detail is the rear side markers went from blacked out to red.
A must have on any car are Ganador aero mirrors. Much better than the bigger OEM mirrors.
Yoshiyuki’s interior has changed as well. The interior used to have a little too much yellow for our taste, but now its simple and clean.
