Mint Vitara by NotoAyako Mint Vitara by NotoAyako
My dad's current car after he retired from racing and stuff. To prove us that he's devotedly retired from racing, he bought this Vitara right after he sold his VZ Monaro and put on 22" HRE P40L wheels with different width on this Vitara of his.:iconnosepickingplz:

Unknown to us, he installed a Vortech F-Trim supercharger and new braking system. His reasons to install all those upgrades are because; First, the 22" wheels make the acceleration somewhat slow and heavy. Second, the 22" wheels need bigger brakes to shorten the braking distance. To me all those resons are just bs, why in the earth he didn't just tell us honestly that he's still not prepared to quit racing? :icononionnouplz: Gosh... dad, you're really a complicated person. :icondepressedonionplz:

Btw, for you guys who expected that this car gets racing interior with all rollcages and custom gauges, be prepared to get disappointed, because this car's interior is entirely stock. There's not even a single LCD screen or DVD player inside this car and no GPS device. My dad's a type of person who doesn't like to use GPS. :icondotdotdotzplz:

However, me and my mom are grateful for this choice of him. At least it's way better than his previous Monaro for daily driving. This Vitara handles better and isn't as wild as the Monaro was. :iconblushplz:

A quick draw before Arthuria's birth. Tried something different on this one. Something closer to DUB style, maybe...? :iconaboishappyplz:

Super cool and super awesome Suzuki Vitara, in Japan it's also called Suzuki Escudo (JDM Suzuki Escudo), for me it's look cooler with JDM parking fender mirror next to the bonnet (hood), keep up the excellent work, my friend. :D B-) :winner: :trophy:

Unfortunately that's not what my father thinks. For him it'd be waaaaay too lame to have an additional mirror on the left front fender. His line that I remember the most is "Don't lump me together with those newbie drivers just because I switch to an SUV."

Sorry, but that's just how he is. :iconahsorryplz:

You are right and I respect that. :)

Well... that is my father's opinion. I'm personally not into SUV (yet) so I can't really tell... :icondontunderstandplz:
granturismomh Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
And I can respect his opinion, I also like SUV. :)

Kalo mobil bokap kamu diajak balapan bareng Range Rover Sport, BMW X6M, ato Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
Soalnya diantara semua SUV terbaik, cuma 3 itu yang menurut aku paling bagus, cuma 1 masalah, BMW dan Porsche tidak menyediakan ban khusus offroad, kalo Range Rover sih mungkin ada...
Kalo mobil bokap kamu 4WD, mungkin asyik juga offroading pake itu dengan 3 mobip lainnya...
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wah, tunggu dulu, SUV yang kamu sebutin itu semuanya pake mesin besar loh, belum lagi Cayenne Turbo S juga pake force induction segala. Sementara Vitara ini kan mesinnya cuma J20A 2.0 liter dan cuma dipasangin supercharger, bisa kepayahan ngejar semua SUV itu. :iconmisakisighplz:

Hmmm... 4WD yah...? bisa sih dibuat jadi 4WD pake parts copotan dari Vitara versi sebelumnya, tapi toh ini cuma untuk harian di jalan raya jadi untuk apa dipasangin ban offroad...? :iconpachuuplz:
Toni07 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013
Tergantung kualitas kendaraan, kalo kamu pasang ban offroad di Vitara, mungkin bida ngalahin ketiga mobil itu (asalkan ketiga mobil itu pake ban pabrik, bukan offroad, soalnya ban biasa gak ada gripnya)

Kalo jalan raya sih memang (disarankan) gak usah pake ban offroad, soalnya kalo mau belok ato rem dadakan (kalo VItaranya gak ada ABS), mungkin kamu kena understeer (kalo jalan kering), oversteer (kalo jalan basah), ato yang lebih parah remnya gak pakem...
