Close-Up: R-Magic D1 RX7


At the beginning of the month, Super Autobacs Chiba held the 12th annual Rotary Meeting at their facility.  JDM Clips was telling me that the Chiba store has always had strong ties with the rotary platform.  So each year, it is host to a gathering of specially built rotary machines.  This car in particular, is built by R-Magic for Takayama to drift in D1.  Don’t confuse it with the R-Magic Super Lap machine, as they are two totally different cars!  Each awesome in their own way though – I particularly like the two different colored wheels on this one.  Check out more past the break!

RC Lounge: The R32’s Test Drive


With a fully charged battery and a tastefully decorated G-Works body, it was time to finally take my R32 for a test drive.  I went downstairs with my Nikon and let it rip.  I gotta say – this thing is great fun.  It’s fast and my new SkyFly transmitter is responsive, but I think I’ll spring for the GT Tuned motor soon.  We could always use a little more speed.  With the help of my co-driver, Anny, I snapped a few pics.  Check um’ out past the break.

Feature: KoyoRad/D-MAX S15


Sure, we all know Naoki’s purple/pink S13 coupe, but some aren’t as familiar with the S15 he was to drive in D1.  This purpose built drift machine was fully race spec, and just as crazy looking as the older coupe.  I wonder if he will be driving it in the new series,‘The Drift Muscle’?  Check out the pics.
