KAWASAKI’S NISSAN: Drift Tengoku’s drift GT-R

By in 15-10-2009 4:38 am

Here’s another car that was parked at Fuji Speedway recently, nicely slammed on some Blitz 03 wheels. It’s the Drift Tengoku project GT-R that belongs to the editor, Ryuusuke Kawasaki.

For those that follow Doriten, the legendary pink and white JZX90 Chaser has finally run out of registration, so they’re moving on to a JZX100 Cresta kouki. I can’t wait to see that!

Kawasaki-san told me that he regularly reads Noriyaro, and reckons the photography is cool. Not bad eh?

DRIFT TENGOKU: The Bible according to Japan

By in 29-04-2009 12:30 am

I’ve been ridiculously busy doing some interesting stuff this week (which you might find out about a bit later on), while trying to finish writing a bunch of magazine articles and get ready for Ebisu’s Spring Drift Matsuri this weekend all at the same time.

As a result, I haven’t had time to get any photos up. However…

Translation: Cool! Hey Mr Policeman, can I have this video?

…after mentioning it a couple of weeks ago, I’ve had a bunch of people email me and ask if I can send them copies of Drift Tengoku. While I’d like to help spread the word (or at least the pretty pictures if you can’t read it), I have a better suggestion.

J-List, a website that sells all sorts of stuff from Japan, offers a subscription that you can pay for month by month.

I worked out the numbers, and the price they can do it for is about the same as what it would cost me to buy it here and send it by economy air mail without even making a profit, so you should check them out as an option if you’re not anywhere near a Japanese bookstore. As an interesting little side-note, J-List are located up in Isesaki in Gunma Prefecture, only about an hour away from all the famous Initial D roads like Akina and Akagi.

They also stock itasha books and models. I have one of the red Lucky Star AE86 hatches. :3

WEEKEND EDITION: Japanese blogs, April 19th

While being everywhere at once would be a great thing as far as this site is concerned, the laws of relativity and the expressway tolls I’d rack up mean that it’s not quite possible.

So, instead of trying to bend space-time, here’s a few interesting photos collected from some local blogs.

First, here’s the R34 GT-t that Tezuka Tsuyoshi is supporting in D1SL this year.
