2011 R3 Satria Neo Officially Launched! The much-anticipated 2011 R3 Satria Neo was officially launched by PROTON yesterday. The ‘RS’ moniker has been dropped, though. As speculated, the R3 Satria Neo is powered by the same 145bhp (@ 7,000rpm) with 168Nm @ 5,000rpm torque Stage 2 CAMPRO powerplant that’s also featured in the R3 Satria Neo Lotus Racing. The all-new […]

PROTON Satria NEO R3 Concept car @ KLIMS 2010 PROTON R3 revealed a rather delicious track-focused Satria Neo R3 Concept at KLIMS 2010 today. Powered by a 200hp (and 250Nm of torque) R3-developed turbocharged CAMPRO CPS, this is the fastest Neo by PROTON to date.
I love this car but it’s really time to move on. Looking for an owner who appreciates a limited edition vehicle (with 150 units only in Malaysia, it IS definitely a rarity!), loves driving and enjoys motorsports as well as wants to be part of a very active R3 community – The R3gister. The lovely, sexy Brigette Liberty Yu, is […]
Picture courtesy of Dennis Woo The just concluded R3 Time Attack Challenge 1dot6 over the weekend was both exciting and fun. I returned home without a podium finish at the end of the day, missing 3rd place by just 0.5seconds, but that’s the way it is in sport. Will be back to battle another day most definitely. Find a detailed […]
It’s the start of a new racing season. The R3 Time Attack is back with a vengeance. Formerly known as the R3 Street ShootOut Championships, the R3 Time Attack 1dot6 Championships features a new class, new rules and better prizes. The clutch is slipping like hell. I am bedding in new brake pads. Team Tze Racing, the racing team I […]

Pic courtesy of Autoworld After taking pole position at the 2005 Merdeka Millenium Race, the Proton R3 Amprex Racing Team took the chequered flag convincingly. Malaysia’s top driver Tengku Djan ended a long personal five-year wait to claim the Merdeka Millennium Endurance (MME) crown; which he described as a bigger victory for the […]

An all-new Satria R3 specific blog has been setup by me and prozac, with contributing writer Andrew a.k.a Jakuzzeeman. We’ve christened it The R3gister – The unofficial resource site for everything Satria R3 LEV. The site will showcase information on the Satria R3 and future R3 cars – including specs, performance mods, testimonials, first-hand reviews, news and other related testosterone-filled […]
Was scrummaging the net looking for info on MIVEC gearboxes and stumbled on a wealth of information, thanks to the NZ-based MIVEC site, one with quite a bit of Malaysian presence. I found info on the MIVEC RS and some detailed specs. Impressive to say the least. Power rating is 175bhp at the flywheel.
My endeavours into motorsports and being an absolute car freak has left me broke. Before I sell my youthful body to the horny, desperate public, I am generously offering graphic design/web/multimedia and coffee-making services in exchange for a much-needed MIVEC LSD gearbox. Currently running a Powerzone LSD kit with the standard F5M22 1.8 gearbox, but find it inadequate when autocrossing.
From the start, the performance-bred, track day special Satria R3 developed exclusively by Proton Motorsports a.k.a Race Rally Research or R3 for short, had always promised and delivered an engaging ride – a no-frills, no nonsense driving experience. With its reinforced, rally-style spot-welded chassis and finely tuned suspension, the SR3 oozed confidence in and out of corners, being absolutely at […]
Over. My Street ShootOut campaign at Batu Kawan, Penang over the weekend came to an end early Sunday afternoon. With much fanfare, tire-screeching and sideways action, the 3dot5 campaign mimicked the previous one – i.e. fun, challenging but no podium finish, no Top 5 position, not even points (nope, not even one Minardi-esque one!). Grrr.
