I had to reupload this as the photos weren’t showing…
車道-Shadow- is ran by Masaki Okada. The name translates to “Road Way Shadow” and he got the idea from two different video games. Remember back in the day, you’d hop on Gran Turismo 4 and go to Photo Mode? Video Games! That’s where Masaki started and got his ideas from! He takes photos of not just cars, but circuits, harbors and ports, as well as urban areas. He drives an MKIV Supra as well.

Celebration – drift smack down – A full listing and explanation of the team. Continue reading “Drift Team Celebration”
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!

I’ve been meaning to write this article for over a week. Please forgive me! lol
Celebration! Hurray! That’s not only the word I think of something joyful but now a drift team. Yasuhiko is a member of Celebration, a drift team. I found him from his youtube channel yasu14celebration.
His drifting is very smooth and concise. I also noticed that his control is really amazing! Check out the youtube channel and you can see what I’m talking about. Since then, I have discussed about the drift team as well as the cars running. And today, we will be talking about his S14 in particular. The S14 is one of my favorite Nissans while being paired with the SR20 it makes for a really great car! So let’s get on with the car setup and see what’s going on with it! ~ I’ll include photos of the drift team in the More Photos area. Continue reading “Yasuhiko’s Nissan Silvia”
Damn, damn….damn (eyes wide) – I love all CROWNs but especially the S18x chassis. Toyota just did it right with this car. Everything from the front grill to the rear trunk to each line. This is one car I really wish the U.S. had received as it’s pretty much perfect. And Shun makes it even better, as we’ll read below.

Yuya really enjoys old cars and runs the Instagram page #illuminate_sunny and Facebook page “Illuminate Sunny”. So if you enjoy old cars, then check those out! I’ll post some of his photos in the “More Photos” section. And that is how I became friends with him. I followed illuminate_sunny and needed some photos for something and through the grapevine, I found him and his car is definitely something cool and pretty unique! I don’t see too many Sunny’s modified like so. It’s a 2004 B15 and is fairly stock other than the aesthetics. It definitely makes for an awesome daily driver!

We all get our inspiration for a certain chassis from something within. Whether it’s a past-time from an automotive family or friend, maybe from a movie or “hero” you have. We all have some sort of back story and that is always what I love to find out and read about! Shige first starting liking the 180sx chassis in high school when he saw Nomura-Ken’s 180sx; He purchased this specific car on April 2nd 2010. He thought, “Cool!” and since then he has morphed his own style and variation into what you will be reading about today! Very specific time line, I like that!
