CRUSHED BEER CAN: The Noriyaro R32 at Ebisu

I’ve been throwing my R32 GTS-t Skyline practice car at Ebisu’s walls for almost three years now, and it’s still going strong. I’m wondering if I should sell it while it’s still running and get something new or keep it and fix it up a bit. Either way, it’s been a beast!

UNBURNABLE GARBAGE: Military-spec Skyline and Silvia

Can I officially take credit for making the word “missile” so popular in western drifting circles? I know that the term itself has been around for a long time in Japan, but a quick dated search shows it becoming popular a couple of months after I first used it back in this post.

It’s been a double-edged sword though, because some people think “missile” means “smash into things”.

“I hate missiles. They don’t have any meaning. It’s just playing. You can’t hit people in competitions.” thinks one D1 driver who shall remain nameless.

That said though, drifting is all about fun, and the funnest thing to do is drive as close as possible to other people. I’m a firm believer that smashing a car’s panels should only be done against another car. For example, take a look at Koguchi’s Laurel missile when he first took it out, now take a look at it a year and a half later. Lots and lots of light hits.
