ANOTHER ONE GONE: Shino’s big crash at EbisuSeptember 9, 2009 10:20 pm
My friend Shino from Shino Kouba garage intended to spend the last couple of days practicing at Ebisu Circuit’s Higashi Course.
Unfortunately, this happened on the fourth lap of the day. Goto-san had suggested that she might want to try a fourth-gear entry on the main straight, something she’s never tried before. Sometimes not trying hard enough with an initiation can be as bad as trying too hard, according to Shino.
While the crash happened at about 140km/h from a 160km/h entry, Shino got away with just a sore neck and shoulders, and she already has another slightly rusty shell ready for all the unbroken parts to be installed in. I hope she’s not making a habit of crashing hachis…Tags: AE86, Corolla, Ebisu Circuit, Levin, Shino Murai

hopefully the next 86 won’t suffer as much as Shino’s past 2
Dios que pena! Como quedan tantos…
Shino! oh no!!
We hope you’re alright… Don’t feel bad, there’s another hachi with your name on it!
that shit will buff out Shino 😉
Sad 🙁 Hopefully she is ok.
btw, I’ve spotted Mad Max’s R32 @ 2.40 -> http://vimeo.com/6428431?hd=1 🙂
Ouch. I guess that comes with the territory.
I’d rather see them die heroic deaths like that rather than rotting away doing nothing/never being driven.
Ouch. I’m glad the driver is ok.
At least the ae86 got to die a heroic death!
Translation from ceuti19: “god, so sad! how so many end up… greetings”
and yes, i know spanish..
Glad shes ok. I feel sorry for the little hachi too. You know, if they could talk, they’d sound like tachikomas.
I hope Shino recovers quickly, please send her my well wishes!
ouch talk about learning the hard way
maybe I should buy one now, rather than later…
Damn it hurts to see a hachi like that!!! But good thing she’s okay. I guess you can’t really improve until you push your limits furthers each time your on the track.
oh my, far too much ae86 pain on this site recently
glad to hear she wasn’t hurt too badly
NOOOOOO!!. I’m glad Shino is OK, and I hope she gets the replacement together easily, but man….thats a big impact.
Must make you feel better about your broken bolts 😛
Sucks about a busted hachi though.
I need rear quarter panels from this one.
Bad times! Pretty similar to the damage i did to mine, totalled into a wall. Wah.
Lucky she’s having another shell, here in Sweden it’s absolutely impossible to find a car like this.. 🙁
At least it went out doing what it loved!!!
let her know when i’m there in a few weeks ill hammer out some work if she wants on the new car!!!!
yeah 4th gear is nuts. its some serious guts needed! scurry!!!
Ohhh. Its a sad news! I liked that Shino’s hachi so much. Is till have some pictures of it from winter matsuri ’08.
Best wishes to Shino!
