Japan Tripping

Well by this time next month i will be in the motherland that is Japan. A 10 year dream will become a reality and ill get to witness first hand action from the D1SL series, MSC series and see the beautiful japanese sights.

Ebisu will be my home for 7 days including G1 competition and the weekend matsuri. It will be my first time leaving the shores of Australia and i am really excited. Theres one thing that i still havnt orginised and its stressing me badly. A DRIFT CAR!  I have a month to have something sitting at Ebisu ready to go and all ive done is “worked out” what i want. Im after a C35 Laurel and this example from Yahoo Auctions would be perfect but i dont want a 500ps RB26.

You just cant argue with the standard driveline strength of a low tune RB25, coupled with S15 front and rear suspension, room inside for plenty of spares, and very accomodating wheel arches. Its perfect for me. I will be taking over my own knuckles and huge 16mm diameter tie rods, spare lower control arms and a few homeland stickers to make me feel at home in the large four door. You know someone in Japan with a C35 Laurel and they are ready to let it go then please let me know as i need to get one asap.

  3. You’re going to love it man, I went in August and didn’t do any car stuff at all and it was still amazing. Don’t most guys get cars for Ebisu through Powervehicles?

  5. Nigel, a couple of guys here in Sweden will go there in november to compete in G1. They already have a guy in Japan. Maybe you should talk to them?

    • Thanks mate, ive been in touch with Powervehicles but a hardcore drift C35 is a fairly rare sight on the Auctions, i lost my bid on the Purple C35 pictured above so hopefully something else will come up
