CRASH: $200 Hachiroku rollover at Okegawa

January 13, 2009 12:30 am Published by

This flat-black Levin used to belong to Satoshi “Wampaku” Nakatani from Garage LFW, until the engine blew and Shino from Shino Kouba garage bought it cheap and stuck a standard 4AGE in it to have some fun with.

Unfortunately though, when you’re driving a car you don’t really care about crashing, you sometimes do.

The frame was bent, so this hachi’s drifting days are over. Don’t feel too bad for it though. The boot floor had rust holes big enough to put your head through.

    Other than the obvious “Takumi Tax”, it will soon be an investment to buy one of these cars!

  • Corey says:

    ****

    ill say theres always a budding young takumi willing to pay upwards of 10k for them specially trueno’s find one for under 5k and you could make a killing

    at least that hachi was just a beater for some practice good on shino for just laughing to shes a character and a half

    That reminds me, I have some photos of a 180SX flipping, landing on its roof and spinning around a few times with a bolt-in cage, and the driver was fine.

    Might have to put those up soon.

    Haha, thats wicked, looks like Shino’s loving it!

    Practicing her roll over skill, Shino and crew were damn fast through the driftland course at Ebisu, could only just keep up.

    flipping 86′s is no biggie ! had no cage in mine when it happened ! and YES U.S guys always worry about cusco/safety21 cages too much

  • Tim says:

    no biggie?
    when you roll one at 160km/h without a cage, the results are never pretty! LOL. a guy in our club rolled his at a super sprint, lucky there was no passenger in the car….

  • Benny says:

    aww i still feel bad for it :P

    haha @ all the other bent cars parked around it when it was getting turned back on its wheels.

  • matt wester says:

    that’s still a £2k car over here even with the rust lol

  • Fro says:

    never mind the car, check out her head movement! perhaps next time she goes to Okegawa in a thrasher she should get a HANS device lol
