In Initial D Drama CD: Kuroi Inazuma, he challenges the S13 Silvia driver Takeshi Nakazato to a downhill race on Myogi. Nakazato catches up in the corners but Shimamura mashes on the power causing Nakazato to feel pressure to win. Nakazato then pushes himself and crashes his precious S13 into a guardrail.
Nakazato then buys a R32 and the defeat against Takumi Fujiwara causes Nakazato to become a better driver and feels like he needs to have a rematch against Shimamura. Mako and Sayuki then find Shimamura and get Takeshi to challenge Shimamura to a race in his home course on a condition that if Takeshi loses he has to get rid of his R32. The race starts and Shimamura takes the lead in the first corner. Nakazato saves his tires in flashback of how he lost to the 86. Shimamura does the opposite, using all of his tires' full potential, thus he starts understeering. Nakazato, saving his tires, notices that, and passes Shimamura.
