Keep Drifting Fun, Alive, and Awesome(FTW)

Been waiting 2+ years for this damn film to come out. And now, they released what I hope is the last teaser.(Seriously, there must’ve been like 5)

And to lighten the mood a bit(yea right, drifting is always strictly business :p) here’s Mike Essa throwing it down at Road Atlanta.

But finally, I’ll finish this post with something that will someday be sort of a common happening here at the VC  fairgrounds, or any local venue for that matter. Nor-Cal boys are killing it!(IDGAF status:)

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 ❤

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.

It’s always fun to see professionals take a lighter approach at drifting and especially when it’s in their personal missile cars, or even daily drivers. Gotta love the love taps too.

Looks really stable, no big smoke… yet, probably just taking it easy ’till they do the demo. lol And i gotta say I do like the livery, reminds me of some of the Spirits vehicles. I hope Hibino drives like a baaS though.
