LOVE THOSE REV-LIMITERS: RB Meeting 2009

By in 15-04-2009 3:54 am

My coverage of last weekend’s Hyper Meeting wasn’t as good as it could have been, because I attended another event on the same day.

Two events in one day is kind of how it is around here. I could potentially do it again this weekend, but the subject of this Sunday’s event is worth a fair bit of attention. More on that next week.

About an hour and a half away (if you drive properly and not stop to look at weird old Supras parked in back lanes, perhaps some Canadians will understand what I mean) at Nikko Circuit on the same day as Hyper Meeting was the annual RB Meeting.

Organised by old-school D1 driver Shunichi Tomikuda (I have some of his “face and helmet” stickers available if anyone wants to buy one), who specialises in custom parts for RB engines, the event was strictly for RB-engined drift cars.

DOWN TO THE WIRE: Direzza direction

This is how little work I’m doing to the Skyline. Other car blog guys are posting all sorts of awesome engine rebuilds and custom bodywork pictures.

(EDIT: I was trying to find this blog when I was writing this post, but then Anthony posted a comment here, so I found it without trying! Check out http://buildthreads.wordpress.com/ for a summary of the internet’s most interesting current builds)

I bought some Skyline wheels!

FAKING THE FUNK?: Video of the Noriyaro Skyline at Tsukuba

By in 16-02-2009 12:30 am

I’ve been back in Australia for a short holiday since last week, and decided the other day to extend the trip until early this week.

Yep, this whole week has been posted from a non-JDM location. Sorry about that.

Also, since all of my equipment is back in Japan, and because I only made enough posts ahead of time to last until Friday, today will be one of the first completely non-original content posts on Noriyaro.

Oh, the horror.

Fortunately, we’re keeping it relevent! Remember this post about drifting on Tsukuba Circuit? I found the Youtube channel for Shun Akutsu, who was there that day with his Kunnyz aero-ed JZX100 Mark II.

Just after a minute in, you’ll see a black Skyline with white front aero slide past on turn one. After that, it turns into a roughly ten-pixel blob, but at least now I have evidence that I actually managed to link the final corner and manji the front straight.

(日本人のお客さん、あの黒いR32は私のです。筑波って、アクセル全開で!レツ ゴー!)

Of course, you could always visit the Youtube page the video is on, and click on the “watch in high quality” link.

Shun’s NSX drifter was having engine work done at the time this video was shot, so have a look at some of the other videos on his channel videos of that, like this one on Ebisu minami for some Honda V6 drifting exhaust music.

There might have to be a feature done on that car a bit later too…
