Last Saturday as I said in the last post I went to Valencia for an amateur drifting event. And what?
My surprise was to found this on the public parking outside the “track”. It is just a Chaser I know, but is not easy to find one here in Spain.
The other weird thing is when you noticethat the car has plates of Finland, country that is far far away from here.
The title says it all.
Normally, in drifting the drivers used 2-door coupes with rear wheel drive, such as the Silvia or the Corolla, as well the RX-7. Buuuuuuuuuuut, no everyone likes coupes, so, why no 4-doors?
Thats it, apart from coupes, some drivers use japanese sedans, normally they are Nissan or Toyota. I preferred to compilate a few pics of the most used Toyota sedans in the world of the Drifting. But now, its your turn, whats the best?
Altezza (XE10 or SXE10)
Aristo (Jzs147 or Jzs161)
Chaser (Jzx90 or Jzx100)
Cresta (Jzx90 or Jzx100)
Mark II (Jzx90, Jzx100 or Jzx110)
If I had to choose, it will go one for the Verossa, I just love it.

Amazing as Alexi gets used.
You could now think that just turn into publishing just sedans but don’t be bad. Chaser are the coolest sedan ever whatever its generation. Hand made rear wheel arches, full body kit, great colour and enormous wheels. What a good way to drive everyday or weekends at Nikko Circuit!
TRD rpm speedo, Defi gauges, boost controller and of course, manual gearbox. It is always more comfortable to get out the car when you have quick release steering wheel.
TRD speedometer reads 320km/h. You are going to need a big turbo under the hood to boost that top speed!
Easy braking. If we imagine that wheels are 20″, then brake rotor is big enough. WoW!
When you have a boost controller and gauges up and down the is no place to the radio. A new location is required. I don’t know why Defi Meters are so perfect to dress in any dashboard.
Yes I know. Now you want a Chaser. And unfortunately Chaser were never sold in your country…what happend there? I’m sure I will pay good money drive one everyday in my way to work.
Three times a year many drift mates abroad come to Ebisu Circuit in Japan to drift toghether.
These periods are called “Drift Heaven”. And during these periods Team Orange and Powervehicles hold “Drift Matsuri (festival)” which contains a drift race called “Gaikokujin Grand Prix (G1GP)”, and a 36 hour drift festival and a BBQs party.
This video is from last year. You’ll find several good videos in the ”Team Orange News Letter” page on facebook.
The schedule of this year is following.. (I’ll show you the schedule of D1GP as well.)
That’s a cool spanish Chaser!!!
