  7. A long-time fan of Bridgestone tyres, Cameron Bell has managed to get one of the first few sets of Potenza RE-71R fitted to his Honda NSX. Here’s his impression after his first track day with the RE-71R at Sydney Motorsport Park. Many times in the past when looking to replace tyres, I have looked at various makes and models of tyres on international websites and had always been disappointed to find out that they aren’t available locally. Well, finally one of the tyres have become available – the Bridgestone RE-71R. I was lucky enough to try them out at Sydney Motorsport Park fitted to my 1991 Honda NSX. This tyre is an “Extreme Performance Summer” road tyre. Basically, think of it as the closest thing to a semi-slick or R-compound tyre without being quite as compromised when used on the street. The tyre has large central tread grooves so it is quite capable in the wet. I was also really impressed with how quiet these are on the road. I had the tyres fitted up locally in Tamworth and headed towards Sydney on the fresh set of RE-71Rs. Something that stood out to me on the highway was how direct the initial turn-in feels. Almost zero tread squirm and a very natural feel and feedback through the steering. It is confidence inspiring and very good considering the tyres hadn’t even scuffed in yet! I used the first track session to get a bit of a feel for the car and tyres, as well as finding my lines. It had been a while since I had last been out on SMSP. After an easy out-lap, I started to push the car a little harder through some turns and wow. The grip levels and steering feedback were already impressive and I hadn’t even scratched the surface of what these tyres can do. After pitting in, the tyre pressures were about 3-4psi too high. So I dropped them to around ~30psi hot in preparation for session 2. About half a lap into session 2, the extra grip from the drop in tyre pressure was obvious. These RE-71R tyres just grip and grip and grip! It seriously felt like a sticky set of R-comp tyres were fitted. If I didn’t already know that these were a street tyre before going out on track I wouldn’t have believed it at this point. The turn-in felt sharp and predictable, the mid-corner feel was awesome and almost no steering corrections were required once set in the corner. It was simply brilliant. The RE-71R has a stiff sidewall which is really evident by how the tyres feel even at the lower pressures. Session 3 was a longer session allowing me to run around 8 hard laps before coming back in. I couldn’t believe that the tyre didn’t go ‘off’ or become greasy like basically every other street tyre I have taken on track before. These tyres feel like the grip level and stability is maintained even after pushing pretty hard for 7-8 laps. I was starting to find the limits of my brakes before the tyres feel like they were losing any performance. On my trip back to Tamworth I got to test the RE-71R in the rain. There was some heavy rain and the road surface had some standing water which the RE-71R had no issue at all with dispersing. Usually, I would be quite nervous in the same conditions on an R-comp semi slick tyre, as I have encountered hydroplaning before in similar conditions. I found the tyre noise interesting in that smooth sections of hot mix tarmac, it made a noise similar to duct tape being peeled off. Not really noticeable unless the window was down, but interesting nonetheless! Otherwise, the noise from the RE-71R is not unbearable, as it is more of a low-frequency noise and not intrusive. Despite pushing them in corners, I couldn’t make them squeal at all as you’ll see from my in-car video below. The NSX can be a tricky car on the limit. With its neutral handling behaviour, it can transition rapidly into oversteer with little warning. This only occurred once or twice in my 4 sessions on track, mainly due to me provoking the car by getting on the throttle hard out of turn 2. Even when the slide began it was very progressive and easy to manage, I was impressed. With around 1,500km on these tyres now, I can confidently say that these are the highest performing street tyre I have driven on. The only thing left to assess is their lifespan! I’ll be sure to follow up with a progress report on how they are wearing as they get a few more kilometres on them. For more in car track footage, check out the video below!

  13. In June, Bridgestone provided two car enthusiasts a set of RE-71R tyres for review. It was a chilly morning as they, along with many other drivers, signed up for the monthly ARDC track day. Held on the Gardner GP circuit, it was extremely popular amongst bikers, professional racers, and track enthusiasts. Cameron Bell owns a 1991 Honda NSX and Matthew Everingham has a 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX. They arrived early and secured a garage space, with the tyres having been installed on their identical Rays Volk Racing CE28Ns during the week. The two cars couldn’t have provided more of a contrast. The NSX is the Japanese Ferrari; mid-engine, rear wheel drive, with a naturally-aspirated, screaming V6 ensconced in a lightweight aluminium chassis. It was even further perfected by F1 legend, Ayrton Senna. The Evolution IX on the other hand, was the 9th culmination of Mitsubishi’s World Rally Championship expertise. It has a very clever AWD system, a bulletproof, turbocharged two-litre engine, and massive Brembo brakes. The muscular sedan shape bulges with wide fenders, blistered bumpers, and that unmistakably massive rear wing. Out on the first session, Cameron and Matthew took it relatively easy, re-learning the Gardner GP track, and practising their lines. Soon it was over, and when the testers came back into the pits, tyre pressures were checked and chins were wagged. Cameron and Matthew were amazed at the initial grip levels of the Bridgestone RE-71Rs, and couldn’t wait to go all out on the 2nd session. With correct tyre pressure levels, Cameron and Matthew found the tyres to be awe-inspiring. “The adjustability and grip levels were extremely high, especially after I had dropped the tyre pressures to the correct level,” says Cameron. Matthew agreed, saying that the tyres felt even better in the 2nd session. On the 3rd session, Cameron was confidently overtaking other cars on the track, even around corners. Matthew closed the gaps on high horsepower cars around corners with ease. “I’ve pushed and pushed the tyres, and they still have more to give!” Matthew commented. Cameron agreed, saying that the tyres were also very communicative, giving him the confidence to choose different lines, passing other cars around the track easily. Both were excited for the fourth session so they can break their personal bests. Unfortunately, Matthew had to end his session early, due to cooked brakes. Despite that, he was very happy with the Bridgestone RE-71R experience, setting a new personal best time at the circuit. He was surprised that the Evolution IX’s Brembo brakes had given out before the tyres. Cameron was also highly satisfied with the tyres. “It feels more like an R-compound racing tyre than a 200 thread wear tyre,” he says, adding that the stiff sidewalls allowed him to gauge the NSX’s grip levels accurately. Both were very happy with the tyres, and would recommend them to any car enthusiasts who goes to track days regularly. Due to the specialised nature of this tyre, the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71 is going to be initially available by order only. Customer orders are expected to take up to 4 months to fulfil.

  15. The final half of the year has started, and July’s EOMM kicked things off with a bunch of old school hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s! Some modern chart toppers were also featured, such as the Honda S2000 and the sadly discontinued Aussie made Holden Commodore ute. Read on to find out who got into July’s Cars of Bendix. Check out our exclusive video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDdjthCGDxg Datsun 260Z Sandy’s Datsun 260Z is the perfect tribute to the early days of Japanese motoring. Affectionately dubbed ‘RATSUN’, this 260Z oozes character from its weathered paint to its period-correct stickers. With a rebuilt L26 sitting beneath that sweeping bonnet line, this 260Z goes like stink and produces the kind of intoxicating exhaust note that only an L-Series engine can. To top the whole package off, this 260Z sits just right on a set of BC coilovers and SSR XR4 Longchamp wheels which suit the classic Japanese sports car perfectly. Nissan 180SX Type X Looking like it had rolled straight off the streets of Japan, Nathan’s genuine 180SX Type X turned more than a few heads. Rarity is a running theme with this 180SX, sporting the only Spirit Rei widebody kit here in Australia as well one of the last sets of 18 inch Work VS-KF wheels. The whole exterior package is tied together nicely with a custom hue of purple and finished off with flower petal graphics, paying homage to its homeland. It doesn’t stop at the exterior though; this 180SX reliably pumps out a healthy 300kW to the rear wheels. Subaru Impreza WRX Simplicity is key with Neilson’s 2013 Subaru WRX. Subtle exterior mods such as the STI front lip and rear wing and HT Auto side and rear lips compliment the widebody Rex’s already aggressive lines. Underneath the skin, Neilon’s WRX has been treated to a wide variety of parts straight from Japan. It sits just right on a set of Tein Super Street coilovers and nicely fitted semi-gloss black Gram Lights 57DR wheels. With supporting mods such as Tomei UEL headers, a custom ceramic-coated dump pipe, Kakimoto cat-back and HKS intake and blow-off valve, power is upped from factory, thanks to a tune from MSR. Mazda RX-7 FC3S Any RX-7 is a good RX-7, and the 4th generation that Lachlan picked up is no different. The sleek, oh-so-80s shape has been lowered on Work Meister S1 2 piece rims, and the outside paint has been given a refresh. The legendary 13B turbocharged rotary engine has also been given a freshen-up. Running a bigger turbo on 10PSI and bridgeporting the 13B, it sends an easy 310kW to the rear wheels on just a safe tune. That’s plenty of power for a P-plater! Holden Commodore SS VE Ute Troy Savage owns this extroverted Holden SS ute, which has been modified to be his business’ rolling billboard. The first thing you’d notice is the VF face lift front end, followed by the massive twin filters poking through the bonnet. Under the carefully customized bonnet lay a 6L V8, with a big lumpy cam, twin throttles and a Pro Automotive tune and makes a thunderous 400hp at the wheels. The special wrap and massive wheels grab all the attention too. Troy also tells us he’s running the Bendix Ultimate brake pads, and finds them really good! Cheers for the review, Troy! Honda S2000 Anthony’s Honda S2000 is cleanly modified, with select parts from the biggest Japanese brands. Starting with an AP2 facelift conversion, the updated front and rear lights are joined by a Voltex front bumper and carbon fibre lip, carbon side skirts, a colour coded Mugen hard top, and big, wide TE37SLs. The high strung factory engine breathes easier thanks to an Invidia exhaust and Injen intake. We also love the cheeky neons, a throwback to the Fast and Furious days. You can definitely hear AND see Anthony coming when he rocks up in his S2000. Mazda RX-3 We couldn’t believe our eyes when Omer pulled up in a mint Mazda RX-3! Looking like it’s been locked away in a time capsule, Omer’s RX-3 has actually been lovingly restored. He and his parents purchased the car from his uncle, who had tucked it away in his garage for the last 10 years. The old asthmatic 10A has been chucked in favour of a high revving 13B naturally aspirated rotary. The period correct Simmons wheels and the unmistakable shape of the RX-3 had many mature car enthusiasts running over to take a look. We can’t blame them, after all, the RX-3 was the definitive performance sports car in the 1970s! BMW 325i Daylan a.k.a. Day Day is crazy about BMW E30s, and his mates can testify to the amount and variety of E30s he has built over the last few years. This is his new project, and he’s determined to turn heads with its full on BBS build. Yep, that’s right, BBS does make a rare kit for the E30. Day Day has managed to hunt down a choice set of BBS wheels. In the meantime, he got the car up to scratch first before he gets the rest of the parts. Fully repainted in Lamborghini’s Grigrio gray, the interior is re-upholstered in sumptuous tan leather. The intercooler behind the front bar is a clue that this isn’t just a show pony; the 2.7l boosted and rebuilt motor chucks out 400hp at a drop of a hat!
