The Kitano Hydros Custom is basically a front wheel drive shopping cart with a big nitrous system. Don't expect to get too much out of it until you unleash the boost.

The Kitano Hydros Custom is a Speed boost vehicle with average statistics in every regard. It has average speed, boost power and handling. It is good for Race events due to its boost type but nothing else.

The car is far too weak for Road Rage and Marked Man events and does not have a very fitting boost type for Stunt Runs. Another drifter, the Hydros can be used in races much the same manner as a lighter weight version of the Ikusa. For drifting, this could be a bad thing, but its front wheel drive counteracts this, keeping it competitive in the sideways. This does reduce its e-brake effectiveness, however.

The Hydros Custom was featured in the July 10 Face Off Thursday.
