Do you want to experience drifting in Japan, but either can’t or don’t want to buy a car? I may have the answer for you.

How about renting a drift car for a day and drifting it at Fuji Speedway?

This is Zee from All That Low, who came up with the idea for renting out drift cars to foreigners in Japan. Here he is ziptying something to something else, because it’s a drift car.

The cars are supplied by STF, a performance shop in Kanagawa. At this event, one was a 180SX…

…and the other was a nice and neat R32 Skyline GTS-t.

The rental customers for the day were some Americans who lived locally, but future drift rentals are open to anyone who wants to come.

Both cars ran all day with multiple drivers with no problems.

Fuji Speedway Drift Course is a simple track, but it’s great for learning on, and can be configured in a few ways to keep things interesting.

This event was an STF drift meeting, with the rental cars running in beginner class, so there wasn’t any stress on the drivers.

It’s also possible to take passengers at Fuji, so come along with a friend and double your fun.

Here’s an example of what the rental cars are like.

Basic specs on the Skyline, but all the essential parts like an LSD, suspension and bucket seat were there.

The 180SX was a little bit faster, but was still a basic-spec drifter, which is perfect for beginners.

Exhaust manifold and slightly bigger turbo on the 180SX…

…and a stock engine on the R32. That’s all you need!

If you have a trip planned to Japan and would like to spend a day not too far from Tokyo at Fuji Speedway getting sideways, look up All That Low on Facebook and send Zee a message. Don’t forget your helmet!
