A familiar face to Tsukuba’s TC2000; the Auto Gallery Yokohama time attack R32. Harumichi’s creation is both powerful and nimble enough to clock a quick 57.371 around Tsukuba. I’ve been a huge fan of […]
The first on-circuit event of the day was the Hiper Challenge; an event open to those amateur’s and privateers. Despite that fact though, there were quite a few cars that got very close […]
So we’ll continue the delayed NDF coverage of HKS Premium Day 2014 with a walk-through of the garages at Fuji. While the majority of the Hyper Challenge cars pitted in one of the main […]
The theme of the next few posts are going to ‘Better late than never’, as this event has passed almost 2 months ago – but to be honest I haven’t seen that great of […]
There is a feeling that some have experienced that is as nerve racking as it is exhilarating. Some may crumble under it, feed off of it; becoming stronger, faster. A sort of pressure that brings […]
Pan Speed. In the realm of rotary tuning, very few names come before it. They are top tier; specialists in their territory. Their flagship car, seen here, is iconic in both build and […]
It’s all in the name; “Anti-Roll Bar”. Although, more often refereed to as a sway bar, the purpose of these bars is to reduce the amount of body roll in your vehicle during fast corning, […]
For as long as I can remember, there has always been one Civic build that I’ve always looked up to. Of course, it was in Japan, and of course I was blessed with seeing […]
One of the Super Lap cars I was most excited to get to see up close was the Reverse R32. Fans of the site will know my affliction with the Auto Gallery Yokohama R32; well, […]
The long lasting relationship we build with our cars is a testament to the love of what we do. It becomes more than just a machine, a tool to get from point a to point […]
Last weekend at Mobara, the drift team Perfect Style made a pretty solid appearance for the open event. I was pretty excited to see such a solid turn out, it really speaks to the […]
Battle Evome, and time attack events in general, are so unique in the sense that each participant has their own story; their own background. Where they come from, how they got into motor sport, things […]
Everyone wants a flame, nobody wants to get burnt. A statement that cries out to the majority. Sacrifice, defeat, disappointment; bitter vices that coincide with the greatest of victories. Vices that the average will […]
I first saw this car when my friend Teddy posted a few pictures of it in our Facebook group page. I inquired about it pretty quickly and he mentioned it was a friend of […]
Super GT released this cool promotional video a few weeks ago for the upcoming 2014 season. It highlights the two brand new cars that will be competing in the new year; the Lexus LF-CC, […]
Here’s another attack enthusiast you don’t see too much of; Okamura-san’s S13. Also a member of the Gokigenja family, this SR powered S13 coupe was built with the help of Hiteq Garage Brio – […]
One contender in Time Attack not seen often is Taro-san’s GC8; hailing from the Gokigenja squad of cars and built in part by Fiber Garage. A very unique chassis in a sport usually dominated […]
Tatsuhiko’s all black FD sure made a presence at Tsukuba on this cold Sunday morning. A menacing profile that was backed up by sub one minute lap times around TC2000. The buddy club QF’s […]
Our first run in with Art Engine was quite awhile back at Tsukuba Circuit during an open track event. Which, after this post, will give you an idea of how versatile Art Engine is. […]
This afternoon we were in Chiba checking out a few auction sites and decided to swing by Mobara Circuit to check out the tail end of a grip/drift day they were having there. I […]
This endurance built S2000 stood the 12 hour test at Idlers earlier this year – definitely one of my favorite cars of the event.
Stopped by a 7-11 in route to Tsukuba one morning and caught up with the ATTKD posse; even their street cars are no joke.
The Drift Muscle competitor Motor Garage Jun Silvia doing a few grip laps a few weekends ago at Skyline Owner’s Battle.
We’ll kick off some of the Mobara drift coverage with a closer look at Kato-san’s Z32; one of the more famous drift Z32’s in Japan. Unfortunately later in the afternoon Kato damaged the front end […]
Sekinei went out to Mobara Twin Circuit this past weekend to get some drift coverage at the Sunday meeting. We’ll have some more shots up soon, until then enjoy this one shot of S15 […]
Typhoon drenched circuits definitely provide ample practice for racing in the rain; as was the case a few weeks ago at Honjo Circuit in Saitama. This NSX and it’s owner wouldn’t let a little […]
Last weekend at Fuji Speedway during Skyline Owners Battle, the Mercury Racing Project built Z33 demo car made an appearance at the Wakos booth. The livery on this car is great; I really like the […]
Beautiful shot of the Revolfe S.A./Do-Luck built 350Z Challenge car at Fuji Speedway, where just yesterday the circuit played host to the annual Skyline Owner’s Battle event. More coverage coming soon…
Last week I posted up a shot of this DC2 on the NDF fan page and it seemed like quite a few people enjoyed it. Sekinei was at Tsukuba the other day during an […]
Sekinei caught the アートエンジン team testing some shop builds at a recent open track event at Tsukuba Circuit. Amongst them was their flagship FD… The Art Engine Racing Development team is involved in […]
Nakajima’s one minute flat, RE Tuned FD3S at circuit.
I can’t remember what day it was but I do remember Alex, Park, Noogz, Matt and I ended up at Up Garage sometime during our last trip; big surprise there right? Not really. If […]
As the sun rose over the grandstands of Twin Ring Motegi, I knew that the time to start the endurance was getting close. Not yet tired, despite being up a solid 24 hours at this […]
Chiba’s own Asano-san and his 180SX having an enjoy at Mobara Twin Circuit.
When I left off, Alex and I had just taken off from RWB in the 964 Rough Soul; but it wasn’t long before we were stopped on the side of the road with engine trouble. […]
This series of posts may be lengthy to read, and pretty much all about my experience driving in Idlers. It’s really not something you see too often on this site, as it is not […]
A couple shots of Shintaro’s S15 Silvia at Tsukuba. Looks like the front splitter makes a nice coffee holder. Unfortunately, Shintaro didn’t get enough time on track to set a hot lap at […]
