The impromptu battle between Ryosuke Takahashi and Takeshi Nakazato is the third battle of Initial D.
Prior to the Battle[edit | edit source]
During the Battle[edit | edit source]
Ryosuke decides to let Takeshi catch up to him due to his speed in the straight-aways. Nakazato proves his skill by being able to keep up with Ryosuke without drifting.
After the Battle[edit | edit source]
The two racers park and have a conversation about the Eight-Six. Ryosuke states that he believes nobody, except for himself, would be able to beat the 86 on the downhill. This annoys Takeshi, who gets back into his R32 and thinks back to the race that made him get his car.
