Episode 4 of the Tuner Challenge is out and here’s the judges lineup!
Keith Charvonia, technical editor for Speedhunters, was part of the winning team last year with a tuned FR-S sporting the iconic Toyota race car stripes. He’ll be keeping an eye out not just for quality but all the details and time the team has spent on their car. Tall order from someone who installed a prototype Cosworth’s Stage 2.0 Power Package in their car.
Samuel Du, editor-in-chief for Super Street Magazine, was in the runner up team and as a judge he’ll be looking at how unique each design is and how well everything flows together. He also seems to be a bit partial to Crooks & Castles because Rob has built a few clean cars in the past and Super Street Magazine was all about cleanliness with their tuned FR-S engine bay.
Taro Koki, predisent of GTChannel, is the final judge of this lineup and he will be expecting to see imaginative and creative cars from both teams. With GTChannel’s strong ties to Japanese drivers and tuning shops, illest could be the forerunner in design since Mark is very inspired by the Japanese lifestyle and the Japanese tuners.
Who do you think the judges will vote for? Also, stay tuned for the next update!
