Yo, this fitment is straight ignorant! (I secretly like it though) But hey, there is a small amount of ignorance that goes into cambering the crap out of your front wheels for fitment. This is pretty popular in Japan, especially street drift cars. It seems that there is a bigger contact patch when the wheels are in full lock during a drift. Not sure how true it is, but it seems to work for some drift guys. In the case of the car below, a street application, it seems to be for looks, which is cool because stance is badass (or is it?) To be honest, I dig it. It’s different without being over the top gaudy. And as far as fitment, it’s on point. Heck, look at the amount of fender work was done to make those wheels fit. That’s dedication.
Who can dig?!
It’s pretty crazy to say, but part of my introduction into the car game was through street racing. Heck, I met a lot of friends I know now from those late nights/early mornings out watching these races. Japan is on the other side of the world but you kind of get that same vibe from this video. Everyone knows there’s a chance of getting into some serious trouble, but the thrill and the love for cars keeps everyone out. It’s definitely a completely different skill but I know its something my friends and I can relate to. Crowds dangerously close and drivers doing things that can land them in jail. But hey, it’s all for the love.
This piece was awesomely done, and so much respect to the street drifters out in Japan. I really hope to experience this first hand one day.
Another really sick video coming from the mainland. This time it’s a weekend of street drifting. Great in-car action. Take a look!
Yet another video on street drifting in Japan. I gotta say this stuff looks pretty epic. I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Japan and seeing something like this is definitely on the top of my list.
