  2. https://www.motortrend.com/news/toyota-corolla-ae86-factory-heritage-parts-gazoo-racing <Toyota Corolla AE86 Gets Factory Heritage Parts From Gazoo Racing Now is your chance to revitalize your mid-'80s Corolla with genuine factory replacement parts. Those in the know are already well aware of the love and admiration Toyota's fifth-generation Corolla garners. It's a love affair that has continued to burn some 30-plus years on. A hit for the automaker, the fifth-generation Corolla would go on to see over 3 million sales worldwide in the mid-1980s. Today, fans around the globe continue to restore and modify the E80 front-engine, rear-wheel-drive version, but often come up short when hunting down OEM replacement pieces which have long been discontinued—until now. Continuing The Tradition Toyota Gazoo Racing is rolling out OEM replacement parts for both the iconic AE86 coupe and liftback models under its GR Heritage Parts program. If you recall, a similar program is currently in place for the 2000GT, original Land Cruiser, and A70- and A80-generation Supra models. Known as the Levin and Sprinter in Japan, both of which are nicknamed "hachi-roku" or eight-six (designation derived from the A engine series; E Corolla platform; 8 for the 5th generation chassis; and 6, the variant within the model run), the 1983-87 chassis are far and away the most sought after Corollas by enthusiasts around the globe. Praised for its classic drivetrain layout and lightweight chassis, the affordable, sporty people mover immediately became a fan favorite among young drivers in the '80s, and that spirit lives on to this day. A massive aftermarket supports suspension makeovers, aggressive body modification, and a laundry list of engine swap ancillary parts. OEM pieces, however, have become virtually nonexistent. This new run of production pieces will be made available through Toyota dealers, just like current model genuine parts, though Toyota notes that they will only be produced for a limited time. Once production ends, whatever is left on the parts shelves will continue to be made available and once those sell out, it's a wrap. Ready For Delivery In addition to the in-person purchases, you can find a list of available parts on the Toyota Gazoo Racing website and even put in your order through the web. As of today, the site lists new disc brakes and steering knuckles for the AE86, with rear driveshafts expected next month and more parts to be added in time. >
  3. https://www.carbibles.com/dai-yoshihara-announces-retirement-from-formula-drift/ "The End of an Era: Dai Yoshihara Announces Retirement From Formula Drift One of the longest lasting Formula Drift drivers calls it quits. In 2003 a young Japanese driver named Daijiro Yoshihara came to the United States to compete in the inaugural (and short-lived) D1 Grand Prix USA series (D1GP). At the very start of American drift culture, Yoshihara was there and doing extremely well, including a 2nd-place overall finish in 2004 Formula Drift (FD). Eighteen years of drifting later with one Formula Drift title to his name, he is calling it quits on professional drifting. For now. Yoshihara has always been one of my favorite drivers. When I was 18 years old, I shot a few rounds of Formula Drift for zero money and considerable effort. The first round I shot was 2016 Long Beach. I rented some lenses and got to the track early to explore. After I wandered the parking garage for vantage points, tech inspection began downstairs and I meandered over to the blue and white Subaru BRZ to find Dai standing just beside it. He was the first person I talked to at an FD event and he was a nice dude with good vibes. His driving style and career were the stuff of legend to me, and there I was having a nice chat. It was surreal and one of the many reasons the early years of FD are my favorite. Dai is one of those drivers who persevered through them all. My favorite time is easily 2004 to 2007, when D1GP hosted regular events stateside with some of the Japanese drivers shipping over to compete against the best of the United States. Icons like Ken Nomura, known as Nomuken, Nobushige Kumakubo of Team Orange, Max Orido with his Supra, Youichi Imamura in the APEX’i FD3S, Masato Kawabata in his S15 before the famous 2009 reverse entry, as well as Naoto and Masao Suenaga, and Michihiro Takatori who would later compete in the Super Autobacs R34, all came ashore to drift at American drift courses like Irwindale and Englishtown. That peak era of drifting is when style was still king, when cars were more original in style and in parts content, and before the insane angle-kitted, semi-tube frame, 1,200-horsepower sideways drag racers of today. Back then, a lowly AE86 Corolla with a hopped-up 4A-GE could conceivably compete against a mild SR20 S-chassis Nissan. Best of all, most of the cars still looked like cars, not like a plastic shell over a roll cage. This is even well before the idea of over fenders was even considered, with the best Japanese aero companies like BN Sports and Veilside making full kits for maximum flair, and much before the LS swap craze of the 2010s. Yoshihara competed against these folks as a part of a de facto Team America and was part of Team America for the 2005 D1 U.S.A. vs. Japan exhibition round. Though he grew up street drifting in the mountains of Japan, he found his way as a driver here in the earliest days of drifting. After years of running an S13 chassis, he started finding success after befriending former TRD engineer Mike Kojima and a brief, ill-fated stint in the Discount Tire Lexus IS 350. With a Falken Tire sponsorship and Discount Tire title sponsorship, Yoshihara got some momentum with an S13 originally destined to be a street car in 2009. With the expert suspension tuning of Kojima, they began a new era of drifting that carried through to the arrival of Daigo Saito in 2012. Suspension tuning and setup became a real thing for professional drifting, as well as the V8 LS swap. The 2010 Discount Tire S13 was one of the first cars powered by a mild LS2 and evolved into the championship-winning 2011 car. Yoshihara also became the unbelievably smooth and precise driver he is today. His 2011 season was documented by the Behind The Smoke series by GTChannel, seen above. The trends that Yoshihara set with his career are some of the longest-lasting ones in car culture. It’s impossible to go to any drift event without seeing at least 10 LS-swapped S-chassis Nissans. Ultimately, this would be the only championship Yoshihara would ever get. The next year, Daigo Saito came in with aggressive tandem driving and an 800-1,200-horsepower Lexus SC 430 to counter Yoshihara’s smooth style and 600 horsepower. Not to mention, off-the-shelf drift steering angle kits were starting to get popular, and by 2014, professional drifting became a different sport altogether. Yoshihara might be one of the best drivers in Formula Drift and one of the greats of our time. Formula Drift struggles with keeping drivers interested for the long haul, with many judging, sponsorship, and cost issues that make the series a difficult one to compete in. More often than not, it’s lighting money on fire. Though Yoshihara is leaving that sport, he is continuing on an exciting path that includes plenty of time-attack grip driving, exhibition drifting, and continuing to make attempts at a Pike’s Peak record. I’ll be honest, I don’t enjoy what pro drifting has become, but I’ll always enjoy watching Yoshihara drive cars extremely quickly. He is the ultimate example of a grassroots hero becoming a respected and well-known driver the world over. It’s amazing what some kids in a glorified parking lot with some shitcan old Japanese cars can do with their lives. Best of luck to Dai with all of his future efforts. Au revoir drifting."
  4. this is the one. i have not seen her drift but she seems popular in malaysia. read that many of the big boys are not match for her.
  5. Amazing fleet of more than 100 Tamiya vehicles and growing. If your wallet is weak, don't watch too long.. LOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vtE3CUqtRw&t=42s

  7. Drifting is forbidden at the Nurburgring but somehow, Ford has managed to persuade the officials to allow its driver, Vaughn Gittin Jr to drift there with his drift machine. He is the first person to drift a car at the track officially. His choice of weapon was the Ford Mustang RTR Drift which features a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that produces up to 900bhp. Thanks to all that power, Ford noted that Vaughn Gittin Jr “shredded three sets of tyres.” as the car “maxed out in sixth gear on the sideways entries into the bends.” As this was all for fun, Ford did not realise any info with regards to the car's lap time but did say that the car managed to hit speeds in excess of 240km/h. Meanwhile, Vaughn Gittin Jr admitted that he did not the know the track nearly as well as he thought he did. "Everything changes when you’re going sideways at those speeds.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=172&v=oLXXL3SK3o8
  8. wish car were as cheap to do such stuff...
  9. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krJmTZ-TcMc Cool stuff. But i would like to drift myself thank you lol!
  10. Here's a youtube video I just saw (can't believe I missed it), for those who love WRC driving. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuDN2bCIyus
  11. I guess not all drifters enjoy preparing for Halloween. Paraplegic drifter, Rob Parsons, aka Chairslayer tries to show those who do on how to carve a pumpkin. But then things did not go as planned and he got pretty frustrated... Watch what happens next in the video below. May the pumpkins rest in peace. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pruMRbLAF2o&feature=youtu.beFor those who are curious, Chairslayer's ride is a Nissan S13 with a V8 engine pushing more than 600bhp. It is specially built to be operated using hand controls in place of the clutch and gas pedals. Watch the clip below to see how Rob Parsons manages to drift competitively in his car. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wd5YV97ftU
  12. TaxTheRich100, a YouTube channel which specialises in bringing supercars out of their comfort zones, takes the new Rolls-Royce Wraith out for a dance in a garden. If there is something called "automotive ballet", this would be it. The Wraith looks beautiful going sideways! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ap9eROAo82U
  13. Just came across this video. I'm not a fan of drifting but the music and slo-mos in the video kept me watching all the way through. Bonus points for the 2002 and Cressida. Warning: Music overlay, lots of slo-mo and hardly a car driving in a straight line.
  14. There is many reasons why racing drivers are called racing drivers. One of the reason must naturally include the ability to save the car from a horrible crash. Watch the video to see how the pro manages to save his Honda Civic Type R from an unwanted high speed oversteer accident during a training session for this year's Malaysian Merdeka Endurance Race (MMER). http://dai.ly/x24tcp2_10314200-837073216311332-1719515136-n_auto
  15. While some of us take our height for granted, this fella here is not letting his lack of height discourage him from getting sideways in his Miata. I must say his NB Miata sounds and looks pretty good too. http://dai.ly/x234tmr_slammed-miata-street-drifting-get-nit_auto
  16. While some might think that going sideways is a waste of time and effort, we think not. Like what Chris Harris says, there is a tension in the whole car that is super enjoyable when you manage to get it into a sliding stance. Of course, having a tail happy car like the BMW M235i in the video helps too. Without further ado, watch the video and learn how to drift like a pro. http://dai.ly/x22jdu6_how-to-drift-bmw-m235i-chris-harris-on-cars_auto
  17. Watch how 2013 King of Europe Drift Champion, Francesco Conti, make the 600hp BMW M3 E92 GT4 look good sideways with some long drifts. Note how he skillfully links the straights into curves at Hungaroring! http://dai.ly/x1u2adq_drift-ro-shorts-bmw-m3-e92-gt4-drift-hungaroring_auto
  18. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rxW_3ZAVHcKen Block's Gymkhana series still hasn't grown old for us, perhaps because it pleases the inner child we never quite managed to outgrow. But now the world has a new challenge: Supercar Gymkhana. In this case, it's Lambokhana, as Daily Driven Exotics' Damon Fryer takes this Gallardo out for a tire-punishing spin around a homemade gymkhana course. Is it as fast as Block's rally car? No. Are the props and stunts as off-the-charts mental? Nope. Are those moving donuts around a rolling tire awesome? You betcha. Bottom line: if you've ever wanted to see a Lamborghini getting thrown around in a gnarly industrial lot, powersliding its tires into oblivion, this is your video.
  19. They say that if you are determined and willing to work hard towards your dream, you will achieve your goals one day. Alright, I would not say this is a dream but hats off to this guy who must have spent quite a bit of effort training to exhibit such skills. I must say it is pretty amusing to watch him going sideways while travelling straight. http://dai.ly/x1nksnf_professional-wheel-chair-drifting_auto
  20. You can always count on the Japanese to come out with silly ideas and stuff to make us laugh. I mean, look at their hilarious TV programs where they carry out outlandish pranks on each other. So one day, when someone with a good sense of humor decided to do a three lap race with their drift cars, you expect some tail out action and crashes. http://dai.ly/x1jmqnr_racing-drift-cars-at-ebisu-circuit_auto Credits to Noriyaro.
