I have decided to post up the photos that might leave you saying “whats happening here?” or “WHAT THE F#$% IS THAT?!?”
The Picture Above is a good example of a “Missile” Drift car.
The purpose of a Missile is to have as much fun in the car whilst not having a care in the world if you crash it. This makes for awesome barrier love taps and getting the rear end to be “su-re su-re” (scraping) the wall. This means big entry`s, Massive Angle and very close battles. What more can you ask for?
This Z32 Fairlady Still has the front intact but not all missile`s are that lucky…
Theres No such thing as “Too many Stickers”. This is quite a good collection in my opinion haha
I had an Option2 Sticker on one of my old 86`s, But someone went to all the trouble of breaking into my car and stealing it from the dash board… The lengths people go to…..
This is one peice of equiptment I really want! Its a “Do-it-yourself” tyre remover. This is one thing that would be very handy if a tyre machine isnt at hand e.g Touge, Street, Circuits etc. Beside it was a can of parts cleaner and LPG Gas… Not the safest way of putting on a tyre but it works!
These two Girls are sitting where the front windscreen would normally be… Im not sure what happened prior (I should have asked) but they were chiseling off the remaining glass around the frame. Only in Japan eh?
Now this picture is pretty obvious… I asked how it happened but didnt get much of an answer, dont think they wanted to talk about it haha…
This picture may get you thinking, why the hell is there a Nissan Micra/March on the track?
It was doing some Time Attacks on Nishi Course but had its hazard lights on to indicate that other cars may overtake, and this is what that 86 is doing… still drifting of course… haha
That 86 is driven by Goto-san, By far one of the best drivers Ive seen, Always driving with a big smile on his face which is what drifting is all about, fun!
East-West Configuration, Mitsubishi Motor and Tuned by AMG????
I have no explanation for this one except it was a Evolution 3 doing a few time attacks.
Not too sure where the AMG Coilcovers came from but thought I would take a picture anyway haha
What is this guy doing you ask?
He removed the Gearbox to swap the flywheel as it was playing up. Not sure what exactly happened but they were definately getting on with it.
Who are these people?
The Guy wearing the hat and Jeans on the right is the driver of the Black AE70 Sprinter,
Next to him on the left is Goto-san who drives the hatchless 86 Levin,
Next to Goto-san is Masao Suenaga from Team Orange and Winner of D1SL last year driving the white 180sx behind him,
the Guy wearing the Toyota-Techno yellow overalls is the driver of the white Levin from Team Peak, I went in his car and his drifting skills are amazing! I asked how long he had been drifting for and the answer was 14 years…. He used to drive a KP61 with a 5K, Big cams and Solex Carbs before his Levin.
And finally the guy in the green shirt that doesnt look japanese is Peter Horniak from 7Tune.com. He got to ride with Suenaga-san in the 180sx. Check his coverage from this event on www.7tune.com
Thats a hand drawn map of Ebisu`s Kita Course. The two Red dots are stated as “Crash Points ❤ ❤ <3”
Definate signs of a Missile!
I cant explain this, But I can tell you that, that doll by the red and white tape is Luffy from the Anime One Piece, and those cans are Georgia Coffee cans, Mountain Erbal Blend if I recall correctly haha. The red sticker underneathe the 3316 says Safety Lease… The rest, I have no idea haha
Possibly the worlds Shortest Exhaust and a really Obvious D.I.Y Turbo Manifold and Piping Kit… Worked a treat though!
There were even a few FF Dori Cars at the event, I also saw a Gold Prelude doing abit of FF Dori on the Touge Course Earlier in the day.
And that Conlcudes this post, Hope you enjoyed my coverage, If anyone has anything else they would like me to specifically post from this event, leave a comment!
