Fourth Stage episode 5 - 6 are airing in Japan tomorrow. Brief summary for ep. 5 & 6: Toudou-Juku (Toudou Racing School) alumni Tomoyuki Tachi, who is an actual racing professional, challenges Project D for a downhill race. Ryousuke is surprised about this. It's unexpected. He simply doesn't know which of the DoubleAce should race against Tomoyuki Tachi. Kyouichi Sudou informed Ryousuke about how tough Tomoyuki is and suggested that only Ryousuke himself could beat Tomoyuki. When the night of the race comes, Ryousuke decides Takumi is the one to race against Tomoyuki. P.S. - As much as you want to watch the Keisuke's FD vs. Sakai's Integra Type R race, they simply won't show it. > (
