While some Formula D drivers are trying to get on podium, some are trying to get their cars done before the last few events. Nikolay Konstantinov has been doing just that.
After a pretty bad crash at Irwindale last year, he’s been planning and redoing his car to be even more competitive this year. This is the same car that he drove last year with a new scheme. He ended up ditching the Type-X for the Instant Gentlemen kit. He also ditched the RB25DET for an LS2. No hate mail – please.
Here’s the finished product after Tex from Graphix By Tex was done with Nikolay’s car! It gets rid of the Christmas theme and makes the car pretty wild looking. I can see this being a “love it, hate it” thing. I personally like how it came out – it matches Nikolay perfectly. What do you guys think?
Nikolay decided to switch to the LS2 to stay competitive with the big boys in Formula D. I wish he kept the RB25 but I totally understand why he went that route. I think he will be a good contender and I hope he can make all the rounds next year.
Along with the exterior and engine changes, he got the interior repainted a light grey and painted the back of his Status seats the same color as his car.
This picture was from when the car had just been finished. He also is running quite a bit of front camber and still has a decent stance. I’m happy that he got his crazy looking vinyl done – much better than this Christmas-themed look. It looks great and I hope he does well at Vegas and Irwindale!
