    Come on man, Irohazaka gives you Initial D vibes cuz IT WAS FEATURED IN INITIAL D. It's where Takumi battles Kai, guy driving the blue MR2 SW20. It's where they cut the corners early resulting in jumps in every corner.
    Looks like Nolan is just fascinated by Initial D but has yet to watch the entire series.

It finally terminates in gorgeous and fun Flagstaff. This one road system is truly the most beautiful road on planet Earth and goes by some the most gorgeous and awe inspiring places of the United States and Canada, not to mention its impressive access to National Parks, small town America/Canada, no wonder it was given the nickname of the National Park Highway. I have been on every stretch of this road including 89A in my 2003 Santa Fe and I would say there is no better road on Earth. Donut Media, you really ought to do an episode on US-89/A-2 (also an episode on the Honda Del Sol would be awesome, thank you)

                                                                                      The Sani pass is also the only time in my life I’ve ever had to do a low range first gear hill start and that almost ended poorly.
