YET ANOTHER RAINY EVENT: Himawari Racing at Fuji Drift CourseNovember 20, 2009 12:20 am
As I said before, it seems like every event I’ve been to recently has been rainy.
Well, at least it’s easy on tyres.
This was an event I went to about a month ago, a Himawari Racing event at Fuji Speedway’s “Doripa” course.
I found these Aussie flag stickers at a local truck parts shop, so I had to pick them up. Below that is the sticker that came with my Labyrinth angle-up steering knuckles, that informs anyone who reads it that this car is indeed fitted with their knuckles.
I just realised that I never put up the pics of that installation. I’ll have to do that sometime soon too.
I didn’t ask, but I’m pretty sure this C35 Laurel was owned by a highschool boy. He was wearing a school uniform at the track, and so was his girlfriend. The event was on a weekend, but a lot of kids in Japan go to school on the weekends for various reasons. I guess they wagged to go drifting instead.
Ever see that airbagged, superturbocharged Bee-R S15? It still exists and was being driven by a Bee-R mechanic. the suspension had been replaced with regular coilovers though, but the engine still had the supercharger turbocharger combination installed.
If I didn’t have a JZX100 Mark II, I wouldn’t mind a JZX90.
But the kouki tails are definitely the ones to have on a JZX100. This guy obviously smashed his, and bought a cheap zenki to replace it with.
Now we’re talking.
I was going to try fitting a set of titanium CR-Kais I had originally bought for the Skyline on the Mark II, but I’m not such a fan of them on these cars. Want to buy a set of absolutely brand-new in the box 17×9 +17 CR-Kais in limited black titanium? They’re for sale if anyone wants them.
A lot of the Himawari guys are S14 fans too.
Can’t really go wrong with dished VS-KFs on a black S13.
OK, here’s one for you. Anyone know what this is?
Guess it? It’s a Mitsubishi Minica, coming all the way from the 1960s with a two-cylinder, two-stroke air cooled engine!
Ever think you’d see a first-gen Minica Kustom?Fuji Speedway, Himawari Racing

Wow, thanks for posting that Minica, that’s neat to see.
Hmmm CR-Kai’s in the perfect offset/size for my GTR? I’d love to, but I seem to be spending all my money going over to Japan snowboarding again….
haha the pin-striping is a wonderful touch 🙂
many thanks for the JZX love, i still much desire one.
oh and nice number, Alexi 😉
Love the Minica! A shame my ’74 MAX is not quite in the same era of body styling to do something similar with.
For some reason I enjoy seeing rainy photos from japan – u make me want a jzx 100 😉
LOL, Alexi, it couldn’t have been worse than the day I was with you and there was a typhoon!
that minica rock’s ;]]] its RWD? lol
black s13 coupe 🙂 agree on the dished Works. I like the small spoiler as well.
