You’ve probably noticed that 2NR has been editorless for the last couple of months, with no new installments of Initial Timing. There’s been a change of personnel here at Source Interlink Media, and I’m now in charge of this here magazine. Change is good, and is inevitable with anything. Coming from Super Street magazine, I’m no n00b that will ruin your 2NR experience. But I will be implementing a lot of change in the months to come. Don’t worry, we won’t lose your favorite departments like Power Pages, Fact or Fiction, or the super-hot girls. We’ll be taking them to the next level.

This issue, we’re hitting the scene’s roots hard. We’re coming out of Japan with one of the cleanest, well-rounded R34 GT-Rs built for the street. And for the wild n out lovers, we got a pink purpose-built S15 Silviaif you haven’t heard of Kindai of Atlanta, GA, you have now. The most anticipated build in Japan right now is the Garage Revolution RX-8. Yes, RX-8s aren’t that popular here or overseas, but Garage Revolution never builds a car shy of total domination. Dressed in all black like death’s chariot, the three-rotor menace is destined to rule the tracks of Japan. Finishing off our features from Japan is the Tsukuba Super Battle. This is the highest profile event in Japan for our industry. See which tuners have real parts and real engineering.

A treat for everyone is our model of the month: Amy Fay. I found this little hottie working at a Vietnamese coffee shop. I can’t go into more detail about those places as they’d revoke my hood pass. Amy’s rather new to modeling but has been noted as the next big thing. She’s got some big things alright, and we get big things poppin’ in this issue.

Here’s your car life, materialized and printed for the month. Enjoy.
