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 […]
The jubilant Proton R3 Amprex Racing Team. 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.
The Street ShootOut series continues with 3dot5 all the way up north in Batu Kawan, Penang. The SSO, as usual will feature the popular Drift and Time Attack events. What a way to celebrate Merdeka – tyre smoke, petrol fumes and R3 Speed Chicks! The SSO 3dot5 will also be held together with a Putera Drag Battle on the same […]
It was no consolation, I tell you, even after Powerzone managed to clock some impressive times for the century sprint with my SR3 on Saturday. Sirazul of Powerzone was rather delighted with the numbers – quickest being 7.25s, from the previous 8.56s some months back. Way back when it was still virginal, stock with cat intact. With the PowerZone LSD […]
In what seems to be a prequel to War of the Worlds, the R3 thread on Zerotohundred has been invaded by hostile aliens for over a week. Seemingly endless fighting between naysayers and non-believers of the R3 (Race Rally Research, Motorsports Division of Proton) movement and SR3 owners and its supporters have brought much intensity and colour to the recent […]
