HACHIROKU DAY 2010: Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou at Fuji Speedway, Part IMay 31, 2011 4:25 pm
It seems a lot of you remember when I posted this preview a while ago of the “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” event on the 6th of August last year. Well, the best photos ended up being published in Drift Tengoku, and I ended up completely forgetting about the rest!
The “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” name of the event literally translated means “8.6° Severe Illness”, but the meaning is more along the lines of “I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is some more AE86!”
So for today, let’s look at the pits. Tomorrow, action from the track. The day after, Hachiroku weirdness and cool stuff.
The lightweight competition. Each car was measured with a set of wheel scales, first the front, then the back.
The weight on the left is the front, the middle is the rear, and the right is the total weight. The lightest car on the day was 760kg, as listed there. Empty tank and bald tyres, perhaps? The heaviest was 990kg.

ITB goodness 😀
I love how that supercharged is crammed into the enginebay! 🙂
Reminds me that it’s only 9 days before the next HR day!
Hachiroku day is August 6th Not June 8th.
althoungh June 8th makes more sense here 8th day/6 month /11 the hachiroku day is worked off how the americans(and maybe more) write their dates 8th month/6 Day /11
This is awesome. Can you explain what’s going on with that table of weights? Looks very interesting.
I’ve updated the post with a caption.
I’m in love with them all! 760kg, now that’s a light car.
gotta love toyotas because they can fit such fat wheels 🙂
I can’t quite explain it, because I’m not a physicsy person, but I have a feeling that measuring weight as above will be inaccurate. Possibly something to do with distance from pivot point type stuff. Not really sure, could be wrong. Can anyone shed any light?
even if its inaccurate, f they all using the same wheel scales..who cares, its a lightweight comp 🙂
Rad. I’m feelin this.
wow this is a pure dream …
Alexi, can you please make that top photo a wallpaper? I love it!
I love 4AGE’s. 20V’s are the best!
