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!

Yusuke’s 4Door S13

I have been friends with Yusuke for quite some time now from when he was running the Silvia. In this post, we will be discussing his “4Door S13” and the back story of how it began. It has become popular worldwide but especially having interest in the U.S. I figured people would enjoy how it became and what it is now and since he is running an Executive Eleven sticker, I couldn’t help myself! lol

TKKT’s Mark-II

He has owned his MarkII for some time now and I must say, it is a very clean example. The JZX seems to be an extremely popular choice in Japan. So much so, that some people go with the C35 Nissan Laurel because it isn’t seen as much. If you aren’t too sure on what that car is, you can read about one here: (https://exec-11.us/2016/12/22/shos-c35-laurel/). On top of all that, the aftermarket support for these is almost unlimited, similar to the Nissan S-Chassis. Overall, he has done a very good job with his car. It’s extremely clean over all. Comfortable/usable interior with a low stance! On top of that, he drifts his car occasionally. You’ll see some differences in the few varients of the JZX100 chassis options as I will be writing about a JZX100 Cresta next week.

Ryosuke’s S13

Ryosuke has been driving S13 chassis’ since he was 18 years old and this particular car for 2 years. I didn’t get the exact “why” as to him choosing the S13 chassis but he seems to like them a lot. …And who wouldn’t like them? They are light weight, great handling, and awesome aftermarket support. That’s why the 240sx has been so popular for so long in the U.S. In my opinion, Ryosuke’s S13 is what the American street-style scene is trying to be. And I say “trying to be” because his driving style is one of the top. Being able to hold large angle and smooth transitions while having the aesthetic looks of a wide body kit and deep wheels, matching! I’m sort of rambling because I keep looking at the mod list in my WordPad as I write this intro and it’s just beautiful. So many good mods, so many good parts! The car was completely stripped down and revamped!
