Unis Shinden MK2 TRICK Hommage

Auto Credit Based on TakicraftCorporation's Unis Shinden MK2 TRICK Hommage

Based off of our Takitech LMP1 car.

Backstory:
Most of you may not know, but I am the grandson of the creator of TRICK racing fuels, Rodney Means. Sadly, we lost him to cancer in 2015, and even more heartbreaking recently losing my grandmother, his wife, to cancer as well last year. So pretty much ever since I teamed up with Takitech, I wanted to do an hommage car for him. In this case, I used one of newest, fastest cars: the Mk2 Shinden. It's different in that it has a 4 cylinder turbo hybrid engine, a little more aero, and the TRICK colors. But coming from the standpoint of how just building a fictional car with my grandpa's colors on it affected my life, I'd say this was an emotional build. I even used my grandpa's favorite number for his cars. In this, too, I have to thank Taki for putting up with me, and Demon for countless hours of testing vehicles. I couldn't have gotten this far without all my friends, like marcox43, TakicraftCorporation, DemonSniper8, KinghandSpider, Caveman999, DuckMint, and Wahoo12. Anyway, I hope ya'll appreciate the build.

Dedicated to: Rodney Means, Marsha Means, Doug Means, Michelle Claydon, Amaya Mirsky, and last but not least, Karson Johnson. Love you all.
