The battle between Takumi Fujiwara and Dr. Toshiya Joshima is the thirty-eighth battle of Initial D and the final battle of Initial D: Fourth Stage.

Prior to the Battle Edit

After defeating the Lancer Evolution drivers in Saitama, Project.D moves into Ibaraki. There, they are challenged by Purple Shadow. Takumi is challenged by Dr. Toshiya Joshima, who drives an S2000 and is referred to as "God Arm" due to his great cornering skill, described as neither drift nor grip.

During the Battle Edit

The race is incredibly tough for Takumi, who has no answers for Joshima's consistency and speed. Only after seeing the data does he realize what's happening, but he is still no match for the S2000. Forced to push his car beyond the limits, Takumi risks it all on the high tracksides, a move that scares the God Arm into putting two hands on the wheel (something he never does) and momentarily gives him the lead, but the excessive force snaps his suspension and basically confirms victory to Joshima, until he feels sick from the insane pressure and is forced to stop and vomit, thus allowing the crippled 86 to roll across into the finish.

After the Battle Edit

Since Takumi broke the suspension on his AE86, God Arm pulled away him, and ends up pulling over to vomit while the limping Eight-Six crossed the line winning a Pyrrhic victory. Joshima later tells Ryosuke Takahashi that he doesn't believe that Takumi won the race, something that both Takumi and Ryosuke agree with.
