Volume is sometimes overrated.

We love the sound of squealing tires as they fight with the pavement below them in a tug-of-war match of grip and slip, and we absolutely go bonkers when we hear high revving, turbocharged four bangers bounce the rpm needle off of the tach, but sometimes it’s nice to look at a photo and think, “wow, that’s really soothing”. Of course, with drifting, this is usually accomplished by watching one of the many hundreds of online videos of these cars in super slow motion, but kind of hard to accomplish with one photo and no volume. Kory Leung managed to capture that moment for me with this very simple, but soothing photo of a drift 180sx at sunset. Looking at this photo makes me want to lean back in my chair, and think about how life is so simple and we tend to overthink it. Now, I’m not trying to get all “find ones innerself” on you guys, but just take a moment and think about what you will be doing today, or this weekend.

Now imagine how all of that would be if you were in a constant and steady drift in this car with the sun kissing the side of your face without a sound. Soothing, isn’t it?

Take a moment to enjoy the simple things in your life and don’t take anything for granted. /fortunecookie

Nostalgic Wednesdays: The Koguchi World 180sx.

I’ve always told myself, if I ever end up with an S13 240sx, I would make it as clean and simple like the famous Koguchi Power 180sx. Nothing to me looks more street style than his car as it was in early Drift Tengoku (Doriten aka Drift Heaven) magazines. The simple classy OEM style body is something overlooked in today’s drift world filled with enormous body kits and double decker wings.

Simple. Classy. Clean. Business.

This is the video found in one of the earliest Drift Tengoku videos ever released.

Mmmmmmmm. Tasty.
