Basics of tuning, style and drifting

Hi readers.

Yesterday while talking to my mate about drifting and the style of some of the cars I though it would be a nice idea to write a post about it, so I am doing it.

I am gonna focus on the !street style! or the low-budget drifting, in Spain people tend to use BMW for drifting ”because japanese cars are quite expensive” In fact they are due to the drifting trend, but obviously it is not the same drifting in a BMW than a Skyline 32, or Silvia’s.

The Street Style is quite different to the cars you can see in D1 Grand Prix or the Formula D, drivers focus more in the mechanics but some of them give a nice touch to the exterior of the cars. If you are a big fan of Drift Tengoku you will see lots of these cars.

Just Another Drift Night

DSC_0120

It was another chilly January night in Tokyo, but that doesn’t stop these guys from going out and shredding some tires. After a full day of sports, no rest, and a half hour nap, at midnight, I met up with my friend whose Cresta you should all know very well by now.

The trip took us from where we live in downtown Tokyo, to Shinagawa, to meet up with some other people. DSC_0068

The owner of this S15 is the same person whose dark green Chaser I shot back in the summer at the JZX meet in Daikoku-futo. DSC_0073

The Silvia is one of the cleanest S15’s I have seen, and the sound it made was incredible.DSC_0076

The little gas station provided quite a nice place for a mini photoshoot.DSC_0079

This is probably my favorite angle of the car.DSC_0081

The Cresta looks very mean from the back as well.DSC_0082  DSC_0091

Eventually, we made it to a Family Mart on Ougi-shima. Lots of photos circulate the internet today with street drifting through the narrow trucking streets. DSC_0092

However, the area was being patrolled by the port security, and we decided it would be better to leave, right after doing a few slides, so the trip wasn’t an absolute waste.DSC_0105

Another one of our friends showed up in this GP Sports kitted S15.DSC_0125

We made our way to Daikoku, however due to a huge crowd and some police action, taking photos was quite impossible on the night, so after the police drove us out, we all took refuge in front of another convenience store, to warm up our freezing hands with some warm beverages. DSC_0127 DSC_0128 DSC_0129 DSC_0135

This man was shredding it up like mad at Daikoku, putting in very impressive runs.DSC_0140 DSC_0143 DSC_0147Drifting is all about fun (unlike some movies tend to show), and in the end, having photos like this one to prove it makes me very happy.

See you in the next post!

Hey everyone, I am back! This past Thursday night, my friend with the metallic brown Cresta told me that there was going to be a JZX meet in Daikoku Futo, and there was no way I was going to miss it!
