Kentaro’s Daihatsu Copen

Kentaro was driving a Daihatsu Mira which I wrote about here (https://exec-11.us/2016/09/28/kentaros-daihatsu-mira-l700/). He has since changed over to a Copen. He wanted to drive something that is out of the ordinary while still being able to FF-drift as he does so frequently. When he first acquired the Copen I was actually confused as to what it was. I had never seen one of these before out of all the Japanese Kei-Cars. It’s like a mini-VW Beetle meets NB miata interior meets high(er) performance sports car. It’s a really neat car! The car isn’t that powerful from the factory but he installed the K3-VE2 that was in his Mira into this!! Let’s get into the Car Setup; there will be videos in the bottom showing his FF-Drifting!
