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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
It’s come a long way since the very first impression, hasn’t it? 7.44seconds for the century sprint isn’t half bad for a stock Satria R3 either Figures posted by Prozac in Car #0006. Recorded on a GTech Pro.
I looked forward to Saturday with zest and little-boy enthusiasm. Although hardly catching enough sleep due to a crazy drive down to Melaka for ‘satay celup’ the previous night and returning at 3am, my eyes were wide open in anticipation of the adrenalin rush from burning rubber at the Sepang F1 circuit. The rather spontaneous decision to head down for […]
Days are always an adventure. Especially when you LEAST expect it. What appeared to be just another regular day, turned out to be one with a tinge of sweat, mixed with slight feeling of stupidity and embarrassment. Heh. In desperate times like this, it’s comforting to have extra hands to assist! Thanks SJ + Jase! You guys rock! Happened on […]
I was going to write about my recent trip to Danga Bay, Johor for the Street ShootOut 1.5 Competition. And also the attempted break-in of my Satria R3 on Saturday morning. The past couple of days has been a mish-mash of frustration, helplessness, disheartenment, adrenalin, laughter, disappointment and anger. Feel free to throw in more adjectives and descriptive words, I […]
