Video: old school drifting in Funabashi (Chiba)

January 13, 2011 in video

TwinTurboRS posted his 100th video and it is a very very very long street drift video (47 minutes!) from a long long long time ago on Youtube in the Funabashi near the pear area (Chiba prefecture) featuring many AE86s, RX7 FCs, Skyline R30s and even a Carina TA63 @8:45:

Unfortunately embedding is disabled, so you will have to click on the picture to watch the video!

Even in the intro you can even see a 8 spoke RS Watanabe in a pile of discarded wheels! Madness! Enjoy 47 minutes of madness!

Video: drifting on Kurume in 1991

November 23, 2010 in video

I think these three videos are about the earliest drift videos to be found on Youtube so far!
Be prepared for an overkill of Hakosuka Skylines, Corolla Levin AE86s and Sprinter Trueno AE86s, (brand new) Nissan Silvia and 180SX S13s, Mazda FCs, MR2 AW11s, Isuzu Gemini, Eunos Roadster, Lancer Turbo, Toyota Carina and even an Isuzu Piazza right at the beginning! Two of the videos are shot on the pass next to Kurume (Fukuokai) and the other one on Yz circuit in Mizunami!

In this second video it really shows how dangerous the drifts of these guys actually were: I stopped counting after the tenth near accident with oncoming traffic!

Yes, a real bunch of lunatics!

There is some serious action on the YZ circuit going on and at 4:36 you can spot an occasional zenki Carina GT twice:

Looking at all this track action I get the feeling the aftermarket for springs and shocks wasn’t as big as today! Most of the cars drift like a boat! 😀

I understand why Shuichi Shigeno got inspired by his drift friends back in the early nineties! These guys really were way before drifting went from fun to pro.

Drift video: Suzumebachi attack!

October 25, 2010 in drift video

Jrotaro just uploaded these amazing drift videos that were shot yesterday at the Mount Fuji drift course:

The Fuji drift coursee is right next to the Fuji International Speedway, if you keep track of the background in this video you can clearly see the entrace gates.

A couple of 4A-GEs together gives such an amazing sound! It almost sounds like a swarm of attacking hornets. 😛

Suzumebachi attack!

Video: Aggressive AE86 Trueno drifting at Sekiasakitto

July 10, 2010 in video

Found some drifting footage of a preliminary for the middle cup in Sekiasakitto.I have no idea who this guy is, but his lines in the Trueno are really aggressive!

I love the sound of that 20v revving through the corners!
Now if only I could find more of this guy! 😉

Drifting the Ebisu paddock area

June 21, 2010 in corolla levin

Last week I already posted 86jnosakuretu48te’s Mc Donalds drift run and if you watched it right till the end you would have noticed him drifting Ebisu North reverse and entering the Paddock with insane speed. He wasn’t alone that day: ae86lan joined him and captured some of his insanity on video:

This is not the same run as the Mc Donalds run, but I think you get the picture. 😉
