Top 10 Cars at Stance Nation Odaiba 2015

Stance Nation’s fourth event in Japan, its biggest yet, finally came to the big city of Tokyo when it touched down at Diver City in Odaiba. Held previously at the famed Fuji Speedway (in the Shizuoka prefecture) and Nagasaki earlier this year (in Kyushu), the sold-out event brought the latest crop of stanced Japanese vehicles out to play. Here are 10 of our favorites:

Hiroto Hosotani's “Bad 180SX”: While most S-chassis cars these days are committed to the Rocket Bunny clan, Hosotani's 180SX is a refreshing albeit wild departure from the norm. Custom widened fenders, side window louvers, side exit exhausts from the front and side of the car are some of its more unique features.

Syuichi Hosoda's Honda Odyssey: The JDM version of Honda's Odyssey is something we'll always crave, even if it doesn't come with a large intercooler stuffed into its front bumper.

Spirit Rei Nissan S13 Silvia: Known best for grafting Honda Odyssey front ends onto the S13 chassis, Spirit Rei kept the OG intact but with fresh aero pieces.

Rocket Bunny FD3S RX-7: Call it bright green or yellow highlighter color, we don't care. This RB FD looks outstanding on those SSR Formula Mesh wheels.

T-Demand does the new ND Miata right with a set of deep TE37Vs.

Ryosuke Horiai's Garage MINIZ Nissan S15 won Best in Show with a Rocket Bunny kit, Barramundi Design forged wheels and a Twin-Turbo Toyota 1UZ V8 swap. The car is from Hokkaido, which is over 15 hours away from Tokyo (including a ferry ride to move the car from Hokkaido Island to mainland Japan!). You can read more about Garage MINIZ at
