Pinnacle of Charm – James Deane’s Worthouse Drift / Falken Tire Nissan S15


A car’s stance can say everything about what it promises in terms of performance to the astute eye. Widened fenders, a low-slung profile, and a front end that would blush at the mere mention of speed bumps. It’s imposing in a different way, one that says “I’m going to tear up this racetrack, and you won’t even see it coming.”


Deane’s ride sports the latest version of TRA Kyoto’s Rocket Bunny aero kit. It includes a front fascia, one that is capable of sucking in huge amounts of air to the upgraded front mount intercooler.


Fenders are also courtesy of TRA Kyoto, custom fit and molded to hold the wheels/rubber. When in doubt, add a few zip ties along the way to ensure they stay close to the front bumper.


The Worthouse team chose a split livery for the car, giving the front a white appearance, contrasting with the blue/teal of the rear (a very subtle nod to the Falken ties). It’s simplistic and gorgeous at the same time, drawing other inspiration from such European greats as the BMW M touring cars and even Porsche’s latest sky-view lettering.


As seen from above, Deane’s car sports the signature red Worthouse logo across the hood, the easiest way to spot it against his stablemate’s blue hood lines. Deane is also especially pleased about the 130 numbering on top – later in the season he went further by attaching a small Irish flag to the antenna mast.
