UNBURNABLE GARBAGE: Military-spec Skyline and Silvia

By in 25-05-2010 10:19 pm

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.

BLAST PATTERN: Tezuka’s BNR324 at Sugo Speedway

By in 15-03-2010 3:49 am

Here’s a pic of Tezuka’s Bee-R Skyline from back in 2006. I think this was right at the end of the first practice day.

It still looked so fresh! These days, it’s amazingly haggard up close, but it gets the job done.

The Bee-R mechanics had the rev-limiter set on full shotgun mode that day, and thanks to the bowl shape of the valley that Sugo Speedway’s first corner is in, you could always tell when Tezuka was out on the track. Kablam!

KAWASAKI’S NISSAN: Drift Tengoku’s drift GT-R

By in 15-10-2009 4:38 am

Here’s another car that was parked at Fuji Speedway recently, nicely slammed on some Blitz 03 wheels. It’s the Drift Tengoku project GT-R that belongs to the editor, Ryuusuke Kawasaki.

For those that follow Doriten, the legendary pink and white JZX90 Chaser has finally run out of registration, so they’re moving on to a JZX100 Cresta kouki. I can’t wait to see that!

Kawasaki-san told me that he regularly reads Noriyaro, and reckons the photography is cool. Not bad eh?

これはドリ天の編集長川崎さんのGT-Rです。シ~ブイ!じゃ、ドリ天のJZX100クレスタを早くメイクしてね、川崎さん!
