This is the second time Shino has done something for a USA video production. She must be getting a bit of a reputation.
In case you’re wondering, that’s not actually Shino’s car. Hers was having the engine rebuilt when they shot this, so she borrowed this bright pink one from Kazuya from Himawari Racing, since his car was at the workshop about to be prepared for registration inspection.
Bradley did pretty well to drift the Hachi like he did, since Kazuya has the suspension set up about as severely biased to oversteer as you possibly can.
Also, it’s always kind of funny for me to see Shino speak so politely. Regarding the bit where a drifter passed her on the outside, I think that person was Shinji Minowa in his AE86. I think Shino was driving a KP61 Starlet at the time.
Straight from the camera of Hoon Media’s Mark Boxer, the editor of Phat Sliggity DVD (and the video of me at the 2010 1JZ Meeting when it comes out, which looks pretty good from what I’ve seen of it) are these couple of videos that will make those of you who haven’t entered a drift competition a long way from your home wonder why we would even think it’s a good idea in the first place, and make those of you that have think “yeah, it sucks when that happens”.
I like how unlike real-life magazine editors, the internet doesn’t care if you use run-on sentences and large bits of text it brackets, but it doesn’t matter, because this is the Weekend Edition!
As seen before in this post and this post, here’s a video of Asayan’s very neat Boss Coffee AE85 at Meihan C-Course, as shot by Laurence.
Laurence apologises for the glitchy video and audio, but the tape-based camera he was using was on its last legs and died shortly after this video was taken. Despite this, he didn’t try and cover it up with some music, and just left the raw 4AGE sound in for us to enjoy.
He was kind enough to drive me to Meihan Circuit when I was in Osaka for a couple of days to watch some guys he said that he thought were pretty good. It turned out to be Team Burst. Thanks Laurence! I mean, Mr L!
Doriten Staff: “He’s taking the bonnet off.”
Tsuchiya: “Using gumtape is faster than that!”
Mana-P: “If you break your bonnet pins, you take the whole bonnet off!? I don’t get it. Is that bonnet really so…”
Nomuken: “…easy to take off?”
Tsuchiya: “What the hell?”
Orido: “I don’t get what they’re doing.”
Mana-P: “I don’t get it.”
Orido: “That’s like if you rip your pantyhose, you take your underwear off.”
Mana-P: “Orido…nice one.”
Nomuken: “Geez, when there’s an Ikaten, all sorts of people show up, don’t they. These guys are probably here to watch eh?”
Michiko: “It’s (Team Burst) Nakamura”
