If this Chaser and Skyline were in a film together, it would be one of those buddy cop movies. The Chaser would be the Nick Nolte/Gary Busey/Jackie Chan character, and the the Skyline would be the Eddie Murphy/Keanu Reeves/Chris Tucker.
Murtaugh and Riggs. Tango and Cash. Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey.
The preview for the next Doriten DVD came out the other day, and this time the main feature is about shakotan! It features current and former masters of belly-scraping drift, D1 Koguchi, 396 Ishiai and 326 Haruguchi! Not only is it a setup guide, but shows how to survive driving around day to day!
Just in case you’re wondering what shakotan is, it’s the Japanese word for “slammed car”. 車高短 is how it’s properly written, which are the kanji characters for “car, height, low”. However it’s very rare to see it spelled in kanji and is usually just seen as the katakana シャコタン.
Next is a traditional Ikaten competition at Owara Circuit followed by a guide on how to install an LSD in your Carry keitora, and a bit of test drifting by a mysterious masked drifter who looks a lot like Naoki Nakamura. Last is some coverage of the MSC Challenge from Sekia Hills.
Do these videos need to be subtitled in English or what?!
Speaking of Nikko Circuit, MSC is on there today. Take a look at the pits from the live camera after about 7:00AM Japan time. Unfortunately it’s not a streaming camera though, so you’ll have to be happy with regular still updates.
