As a counter to yesterday’s post, have a look at this lovely little Wagon R. Even the spokes in the wheels are hearts. I <3 kei.
I’d like to point out that it’s a guy driving this car. Perhaps his wife took the Celsior that day?7 Comments
Pretty tough for such a little car.
However, if you’re one of those types who thinks that a little FR Toyota like that making a noise that sounds like anything other than a 4A is sacrelige, try Youtube user URC86′s channel, especially this video which contains a little over ten minutes of flat-out nose-to-tail drifting.3 Comments
You didn’t think I was just going to post one day of weird kei car drifting and not follow it up, did you?
Now it’s time for some FF Subaru Rex action!16 Comments
I get the feeling some people will lose the plot over this post.
“I’m sick of Silvias and Skylines and AE86s!” they say.
“I want something a bit more unique! Something a bit weirder!” they cry.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you kei truck drifting.37 Comments
When they were first introduced, the Suzuki Wagon R became explosively popular in Japan, and has remained the best selling car in its class.
When they look at cool as this with a simple set of lowering springs and Work VS-KF wheels, you can see why.
The fact that it’s turbo doesn’t hurt either!11 Comments
Noriyaro is all about driving in Japan, so enough of the Sprinters and Nissans and big Toyotas for now. Have a quick look at the smaller side of going fast, namely the Suzuki Alto turbo.
This red one is owned by a girl down in Okayama Prefecture who doesn’t just cruise around narrow backstreets, but actually thrashes it on the track on a set of little 185/50 13-inch Advan Neovas. The three-piston exhaust note has a very distinct sound, especially when revving to 9000rpm and combined with a miniature blow-off valve.6 Comments
