Mazda Tuning Festa 2012 - Suzuki FC

That crazy man Suzuki in his crazier FC.

Drift cars don't last long. They eventually get re-shelled and the successful components transplanted.  The cool pieces from the last FC3s have found their way onto this FC3c.

The shell is not a hack job. It's actually pretty straight and clean.

Mazda Tuning Festa 2012 - Mocomans Twin

I think readers of my website understand it... and I think the guys from Mocomans know it. If you are going to drive an FD. You can't be subtle. 

I handed out a couple of stickers to these guys last year. and they were proudly running them today. Pretty stoked actually. This street legal drift FD is pretty special.

The owner of this car loves the shots I took last time before this car was tainted during some passionate drifting. So this year it new wears some new panels, new color and some pretty cool features.

Mazda Tuning Festa 2012 - R U Ready

Mazda Tuning Festa was a long day. It takes a while to get set up.

 Everyone arrived pretty early and there were already cars on track by the time I arrived about 8am. This face needs no introduction. The car behind also monumental.

Koseki-san (left) was also getting things ready to go.

Taniguchi firing the 20B turbo in the Super Greddy into life.

Suenaga was also ready to go for some drift action. A few sets of neova's will be ready to be trash by the end of the day.

while some cars wouldn't move, they would look their best all day.

13B PP with T88 attracts attention... as does monster camber.

Got ground clearance... Ummm. NO!

A few tweaks to get things going and keep them going.

Some Pan Speed tweaks here.

before heading out. I like cars that turn heads. Suzuki's FC certainly does that.

Mazda Tuning Festa 2012 - Preview

Mazda Tuning Festa 2012. Another 7's day event that was amazing. This event continues to be fun and produces some excitement in many forms. 

If time attack is your thing. There's plenty of that.

Maybe an appreciation of the older models and a chat with some privateers.

in the pits, or on track, you don't have to look far to find some coolness. Young guys and old.

Legends are everywhere.

Some more suited to tracks other than Tsukuba.

Maybe drift is your style ...

... or street tune.

There is something for everyone.
