Making a come back this year at TIMETOATTACK this Sunday (May 20th) is Ken Ji's very own circuit monster dubbed the HKS TIME ATTACK S15 SILVIA. A 560bhp, still road-legal, show-car worthy RWD bullet. The TIMETOATTACK Hall of Fame 2012 listings will soon see a reshuffling of positions between the old, the older and the new.



Just to bring you up to speed, this regularly road-driven, fully-intact interior, air-conditioned, iced-up, cageless piece of road-to-race-inspired, mechanical engineering masterpiece, coupled with its owner/driver Ling Ken Ji secured 3rd place in TIMETOATTACK 2011 Finale Top 20 Overall Fastest Men.



It clocked 2:26.331 and was #@$%^&* insane because it was still on Yoko A050 Semi Slicks where the GTR35 and 997Turbo were running on full slicks then. Despite Ken Ji's S15 FR Layout, he was also only 1+ second off the 997Turbo on slicks. His relentlessness efforts spent on both developing the car and mastering Sepang certainly paid off well.

I'm amazed by the fact that the Silvias is so fast, same with the Type-R.. I assumed 4wd monsters like Evos to better Silvia. I'm wrong.

I'm so gona save all those pictures. thanks alot tom. i would wish to see kenji's S15 compete with CZ200S. My perfect dream car if it's white, i wonder how much ken ji has thrown money on this S15, beside the number plate itself already cost more than 100k.. i think now the most necessary upgrade is to getting a ceramic brakes, sure do hell alot improving lap time.

There's a certain relevance between the car, ken ji and Neverland. But if anyone likes this special feature, please patronize Neverland KL, an entertaining night spot with an awesome ID.

im guessing this could be due to poor sound recording from the video device not being able to pick up the audio from initial spooling of the turbine. i'll let ken ji do the talking

no problems alwjmonster. this special feature is in fact a 3 month overdue piece. but one that coincides with the upcoming TIMETOATTACK so it's all in good order. glad you love the pics.

Thanks for the detail reply TOM! Other than Kenji's Silvia, saw a Black Silvia with full roll cage before there. I park my car at Neverland Parking lot daily :biggrin:

Neverland Orange! Is indeed kinda happening even I have not been in there before but I know once awhile got quite some
big events going on with so many people around.

Is just next to Menara HLA if anyone is interested to head there for more than 1 drink :top:
Coming from KL Convention Centre direction towards pavillion. A one way road (Jalan Kia Peng). :wink:

U have to turn into the parking lot of Neverland Orange :smile:

this car has come from a very long way.. the time spent to make it this good and tough is priceless. Pair it with a track junkie like him, this car can fly.
