Yuto’s Nissan Cefiro

Hmm, the A31, not as popular in the U.S. as I was hoping/suspecting it to be. If done right, these can be a very fun cars sharing components from other Nissan(s) cars. Similar to other cars of the era, you can build it to a lot of different styles and/or tastes. I’ve always enjoyed this body style and wish we received it in the U.S. Today, we will be looking over Yuto’s Cefiro. As most of the cars on this blog, he uses it mainly for drifting. I found him from knowing Ryosuke (https://exec-11.us/2017/02/21/2304/ This car is for sale) as they are friends.

Yuto has owned this car for about 5 years. The fact that these cars came equipped with RBs from the factory makes a very nice option for a nice car to own and being RWD you can make a very capable drift car with some simple bolt ons. Looking at Yuto’s car, you’d think it has a ton of crazy modifications or aftermarket parts but I was surprised to find out that it isn’t overly built. It’s funny, the American drift scene is a lot different for the most part. Some of the first things we do to cars is overly done suspension work, insane HP mods, and below you’ll see you don’t really need much to get going!
