DRIFT TENGOKU DVD: Vol. 64 preview

June 13, 2011 7:23 am Published by

The preview for the next Doriten DVD came out the other day, and this time the main feature is about shakotan! It features current and former masters of belly-scraping drift, D1 Koguchi, 396 Ishiai and 326 Haruguchi! Not only is it a setup guide, but shows how to survive driving around day to day!

Just in case you’re wondering what shakotan is, it’s the Japanese word for “slammed car”. 車高短 is how it’s properly written, which are the kanji characters for “car, height, low”. However it’s very rare to see it spelled in kanji and is usually just seen as the katakana シャコタン.

Next is a traditional Ikaten competition at Owara Circuit followed by a guide on how to install an LSD in your Carry keitora, and a bit of test drifting by a mysterious masked drifter who looks a lot like Naoki Nakamura. Last is some coverage of the MSC Challenge from Sekia Hills.

Do these videos need to be subtitled in English or what?!

    Hell yeah they need those English subs! Japanese is a fairly easy to understand language, especially when you come from Russia, a halfliter of vodka and you’re there lol

    Where’s the girl with the boobies…?

  • Musuko says:

    I think it would be good to have those dvds with sub in english as less.
    I’m sure that the masked drifter is Nakamura-san and it’s nice to see him again on dvds not only in Drift Muscle series, he’s a nice driver and it’s a very big shame that he got banned from D1GP series and D1SL for street drif, I understand him perfectly when he said that he wanted to practice in the streets.
    I hope everything goes OK to him.
