Nikko Circuit’s heavily cambered track edges can make for some fun drifting if you mess around with them. While it’s not something that most drivers normally do, standing near the final corner and egging them on does seem to help a bit. Here’s a few pics from a TGS track day earlier this year.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the Mark X when it first came out, but now that people are doing this sort of thing to them, I might have to reconsider.
Now here’s a good waste of time! While they’ve already done Street View maps of a few other racing tracks around the world, such as Laguna Seca and Mt Panorama, Google Maps now has Street View of some of the major circuits in Japan. What’s even better is that they haven’t just lapped around the circuit itself (or at all, in the case of Fuji Speedway), but also driven through the pits and interesting surrounding parts of the track.

I visited a Soarer-only drift event at Mobara a little while ago, but some the photos might be getting used in a magazine, so here’s a preview pic of some “Soarer life” for now.4 Comments
Apparently, Kawashima visited Newstyle and said that Niiyan hadn’t cut enough of the fender, and the wheel wasn’t sticking out far enough. This was the result.
For those who were asking, yes the tyre holds air and no, those aren’t custom double bead wheels, just standard Leon Hardiritt Bugels.14 Comments
