Clean and smooth drifting; it always catches my eye! And that’s why I had to write about him and his 180sx!

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.

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!

The S-Chassis is still one of the most popular cars to modify and I think that goes for any part of the globe. In the United States, 240sx cars have gone way up in price whether they are “clean” or “beat”. Most of them seem to be haggard for prices much higher than anyone would want to pay. But I think that is due to them being 20+ years old and for every car out there, you’ll have one crashed. And for these cars to be popular in the drift scene, these cars will only get more rare, really, by the week.
