My friend Yusuke drifting his D1SL PS13 at Mobara Twin Circuit in August 2013. He even took me for a ride! ありがとうございましたゆすけさん！
In the last post I mentioned that during our trip to Japan we would all be driving S chassis’s this time round. At the end of last years summer matsuri I decided to sell my R33 as it was getting too worn out and unreliable. The R33 was defiantly a great car to learn to drift in, and until it decided to keep blowing turbo’s it was very reliable. On the other hand though I felt that the torque and lowdown power of the RB25 made it too easy to drive, especially compared to my stock boost RB20 in Australia. After toying with the idea of getting an RB25 swapped Cefiro or Laurel I decided that I’d learn more from a silvia and so the hunt began for a suitable car!
After a somewhat stressful couple of weeks Team Red Stage has made it into the world Time Attack Team Drift Challenge! Joining Team Red Stage will be 3 Fingers Neat Blaze Unit (including the famous ‘Jabbit’), Sydney’s own Driftmob and Team Slide N Destroy from Victoria featuring ‘Driftcat’ Catherine Colerio. In addition to a bunch of known drivers the other teams are also using some very impressive machinery, including a twin turbo LS1 commodore, a 2JZ Silvia and a plethora of fully built SR20 S-chassis’s. Team Red Stage does have one ace up it’s sleeves though!
I haven’t posted anything for a long time, mainly because nothing has been happening besides practice days at Wakefield Park in my R31. This month however I entered into the Team Drift Challenge at this years World Time Attack Challenge with Paul and Eiji from Team Red Stage. We’re currently in the process of building a pair of S13 battle cars for the event, and as we’ll be spending two weeks in Japan drifting together at the end of July we’re hoping we’ll be able to put on a really good show!
