2012… Drifting….. A year to remember???
So the off season was a bit less eventful than years past. Well except for the new FR-S/GT-86/BRZ part but w/e, let that simmer with the fan boys…. NO!!!! So far, I’m loving Yoshioka’s 2012 build, and also Ken Gushi’s. But the one I am most excited about is Orido’s. That thing is a beast and I’m just hoping he doesn’t crash.lol.
Mean while, Mike Kojima seems to be stepping up his involvement with S13 chassis <3
Last year was probably the best showing that him and his crew have put on. Dai drove so comfortably in that car and the grip that car had was almost unreal. This year though, it seems like Falken has some bigger plans. Why you ask??? Well, Walker Wilkerson was on fire last year, but an SR20 can only take you so far. He drops in a V8, upgrades his rear knuckles and does a few tweaks with the chassis, and viola, you have a duplicate of the Discount Tire S13 with a slightly different drift style set-up. Not to mention, today(March 29th) Mike Kojima, Dai Yoshihara aaannnndddddd Walker Wilkerson have a nice lil’ testing day at the Balcony at WSIR. Hmmmmm… Mike, I’M JEALOUS!!!
Anywho, here are some pics and an excelent clip of some of the new theories/ventures being put to the test at the track.
