Back From Round.5 Seattle

I just got back from Seattle.

Me and my team crew hop on a truck and drove all the way to Seattle.

It was a new experience to me, and pretty tiring,

but, It was a kind of interesting to drive across West Coast.

Next time if I drive up to Seattle, I wanna have more time to enjoy the sights, towns, natures and stuff like that.


The result of the round.5 was…


Top 16.

I cound not beat my friend Ross Petty at Top 16 Tsuiso (Tandem battle)

We did 2 One more times. so for the total, we ran 6 times together.

I lost but, It was fun!


The very first time of this year, I could drift a lot and had fun a lot without any machine trouble.

And second time showing up for the Opening Ceremony.

It always feels so good.

Round5 O/C 

When you tow a trailer next time,

Be sure that you have tires right, because



This is not a great thing to have on your way to home.


All star bash @ willow springs

Last weekend, me and my team went to Willow Springs to do some practice.

ASB 1 2009 JUL

This day, Just Drift was having an event called All Star Bash, and I was so surprised that some people came all the way from Washington and Michigan and other far places either to drift or just to watch.

These people were having fun and I really liked that.

The course that I drove was the STREET its called, It was a first time for me to drive on this course but I was pretty excited.

ASB 2 2009 JUL

The event started at 9am and the drivers meeting was at 7am.

Like always my team was behind the schedule, and we got to the place around 10am.

Quickly get ready and got into the course.

First I was driving very simple. Not so much drifting or crazy turns, I was just trying to remember how the course is like and,


Water temp. Like always. Get back to the pit and let’s see what happened.

Head Gasket seems very suspicious, or actually broken…..

But we drove about 2 hours just for this event, so I still did not wanna quit driving yet.

So, Get back to the course and practice.

I gave Hiro Sumida a ride for about 3 raps,

So unwanted noise was caught in my ear.

The major motor damage, the main baring blow.

We did not have much time till FD Round 5 Seattle so,

As soon as we got back to Bryan’s place, Bryan, Andy took the motor out from the car.

Under the hood w/ motor

Bryan and other guys are working hard on this problem now.

We have 2 more days till we leave So Cal.

I just cross my fingers that we can make it to Seattle.


Party @ Bay Side in Torrance

I went to a party @ Bay Side in Torrance.

People were dancing, talking…

I don’t really go to this kind of parties or places usually, but it was a kind of fun actually.

I met new people like

These guys.

Nishida twins

wow dudes…. it even looks like somebody photoshoped two different pictures into one.

It was niced meeting  you Nishida brothers.


And more surprise was…


Ross @ bayside


How can you miss this guy with a fabulous goaty!

It was so random to find him at the party but,

I like this guy. He knows how to have fun living his life. AND OF COURSE

 Ross @ NJ

He knows drifting.

And most importantly, He speaks Japanese! How awesome he is.

He is one of the most importat drift friend in the U.S to me because

To me Japanese speakers are the only people that I can communicate to by myself.


It was great to see you Ross.


New wheels – Work Wheels

I ordered new wheels back in April,

And (roll drum)


XSA 03-1

From Las Vegas, we installed these super cool looking wheels on our car.

XSA 03

This is WORK Wheels’ XSA 03.(戦 03)

This is the special color model made just for me. I LOVE IT!

XSA 03-3

And, this is how you work on your car.

The beautiful legs that you can see underneath the car are

The team owner Bryan’s.

He said he was checking the clutches, but

I was pretty sure that he was just taking his beauty nap right there.


Winery in Temecula, CA

This Thursday, me and my translator/manager Kie went to Temecula to have some wine tasting.

Well, my actual purpose of going down that far all the way from Torrance is to go to Pechanga casino… anyways,

It took us about one and a half hours to get there and actually the town itself was pretty calm and relaxing.

Kie is a winer so I guess she can tell the differences between the wines we tasted, but to me

a guy only loves cars and drifting, wine tasting is just too much to tell any differences.

Although, I still could tell a difference between Red and White wines….

Falkner winery 1

I guess this is how you taste wines…


Falkner winery 2


We had fun in Temecula. New experience to me.

Even I was so lost in the wine whatever knowledge, however,

I will proudly represent your wines and winery OWNERS!!

Are you interested in sponsoring me for next year? LOL. Seriously….


Back from Rd.4 Vegas

First of all,

Thank you for those who came to see me and Formula Drift Round.4 .

The result was….

I end up with being top 16 this time.

First time to show up on the opening ceremony this year, unlike last year.

Of course I was not with my R34 that so many people loved last year since now I am with Bridges Racing Nissan 240sx, but I was surprised that many fans still remembered me and talked to me.

So, Thank you so much for those fans still suporting me.


Next round is Washington in August.

I am looking forward to see many drift fans.
