RS Aoyagi is a racing shop located in Fukuoka. Visiting the shop was quite easy as they are within a 10 minute walk from a bus stop. The part of Fukuoka the shop is located in is quite industrial and old. The infrastructure in the area, including the bus station leading to the shop looked like it was preserved from the 80s!
The Aoyagi family focuses on racing with their 310 Sunny and their Fairlady Z. Despite being known as a race shop, they do comprehensive work to all sorts of vehicles including body work, painting, engine work, race support, tuning and classic vehicle sales.
Arguably their most famous machine, the RS Aoyagi Fairlady Z. The Z is donned in their signature blue much like their famous 310 Sunny. Mitsuhiro Aoyagi, the son of the the founder Hideaki-san races with this Z.
The RS Aoyagi Z features a beautiful G-nose and works flares to allow for additional width on the wheels and better aerodynamics.
The L28 in this Z is stroked to 3.1L and can run Autopolis Circuit at 2:04!
