So, let's see... Shinji is so damn good because
1) He drove his sleeping mother (which basically plays the role of a glass of water) since he was 10, and that without having had the slightest of training
2) he knows the scenery so perfectly, since he observed the scenery from the passenger seat everyday for the last 12 years (cause its well-known, nothing ever changes during 12 years, no big deal)
Conclusion : either the kid drove while sitting on the passenger seat, in which case he's extraordinarily talented, or all this is just bullshit. Seems legit.
I love the wing scene :) I know Takumi "always" wins but I still hope to see him win this last race.
I guess this one race will take all four episodes. Shinji kind of came out of no where (when you think of the whole series)... I'm sad there wasn't some kind of overreaching rival or legend that Takumi could have faced here.
bonifide said: I still dont like him facing the same type of opponent with almost the same exact car thats poor writing IMO. I wanted end-game to be his father.
