Friday Video: two hours non-stop 90s drifting

June 26, 2015 in video

Mr Yumio at Youtube just uploaded his private drift videos from 1990 till 1993. Half of the content takes place at local drift events but the other half is shot on various touges. You really can see how things evolved since this early 90s drifting!
Friday Video: non-stop 90s drifting
It is interesting to observe in this video that most cars at the touge are old “disposable” cars. For instance the Nissan Skyline R30 and Toyota Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno AE86 are popular cars. At the circuit a lot of new cars can be seen: Mazda RX7 FC, Nissan Silvia S13, Nissan 180SX, Eunos Roadster and a Toyota Soarer Z30. Still the AE86 is ubiquitous at the circuit as well.

Other extraordinary cars seen at the touge are: Nissan Skyline GT-R PGC10, Isuzu Piazza, Isuzu Gemini PF60 and a hot Nissan Sunny B310. At the circuit the most odd thing is a second generation Honda CRX SiR drifting in reverse!

I bet you can’t wait to spend the remainder of your Friday afternoon watching this video: Read the rest of this entry →

Who cares about Tokyo Auto Salon?

January 16, 2013 in drift video

While all the journalists of any importance were drooling over all the Toyota 86-es and Subaru BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2013 these guys were actually having some fun in the real 86-es at a circuit day organized by Auto Service Ito!

Who cares about 86-es and BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon when you can actually have fun with the real deal!

Carina Sightings: winter is coming early this year!

October 12, 2011 in carina sightings

At least it is in New Zealand! According to the description of these two videos it is Mattys Carina AA60 that is having fun in the snow.

For me, as a European, I will have to wait a few more months before it will be as snow covered as in this video. Or even worse: with the Dutch weather it may quite unique with that amount of snow!

In the second video there is no oncoming traffic: Read the rest of this entry →

Hilarious: Erotic book drift! (censored!)

July 3, 2010 in hilarious

What? Hilarious posting on Wednesday? Something up? Yes indeed, there is something up!
I received an message from Koken that I should check out something great… The two videos were by 86jnosakuretu48te again and this time outdoes himself, in the first one he does the McDonalds run again (he thought the last one wasn’t shot properly) but this time he finishes off with a cigarette: Read the rest of this entry →

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. 😉

Carina sightings: drifting Carina TA60 bi-turbo!

May 3, 2010 in carina sightings

I did know about the existence of turbo-ed 2T and 3T engines, but bi-turbo?

If you look well enough you can see a big intercooler behind the cutted front air dam. Also where the grille used to be an oil cooler has been placed. It is unknown which engine has been used for the swap, but it is surely a bi-turbo diesel engine. (probably a 2L-T hilux diesel engine)

The original car appears to be a TA60 Carina coupe and its 31 years old Finish owner takes really good care of it:

Yep, that’s how easy it is to get a Carina sideways when you have loooooads of torque! I wonder how long it will take before D1GP will be flooded with diesel engines. 😀 😀

This is the most recent video of the car:

I wonder if there will be more updates soon! 🙂
