CW x all white fleet

Here is a shoot I did back during the summer of 2010. I always like cars in white the best and wanted to set up an all white fleet. The cars consist of my '93 Mazda RX-7 drift comp/race car, '98 Nissan Silvia show car, and my '01 BMW M3 daily driver. I have owned this FD since 2003 and has been through many iterations. With the body still on it's original coat of paint, it has been through many graphic schemes, wrap in full Falken Team colors, gone through various sets of aero, and Read more [...]

Gymkhana Grid Recap

The inaugural Gymkhana Grid event turned out to be a great event. This new style of competition format was both entertaining to watch as well as to compete in. It combines aspects of drifting, autocrossing, drag racing, and time attack all into one. I believe this new style of competition could be the next big thing in motorsports. The event started off with an interview with J-Rod which can be seen at My FD3S at the Falken Motorsport pits with event winner Dai Read more [...]

C.Wan Competing in Gymkhana Grid

I got invited to compete in the inaugural Ken Block Invitational: Gymkhana Grid event on Dec 3-4, 2010. I am going to be bringing out my personal Mazda RX-7 for this event. Since this style of driving is more of a combination of autocrossing and drift, I am planning to adjust my drift set up to a more grip biased gymkhana setting to concentrate more on speed throughout the course rather than full drift and style. Gymkhana is essentially a timed race on a technical course where drifting Read more [...]

Puerto Rico – Furious Wheels Demo 2010

I got invited along with Casper Canul and Ross Petty to demo and judge the drift portion of the biggest car show in Latin America: Furious Wheels in San Juan Puerto Rico from October 14-17, 2010. The Puerto Ricans were not new to drifting. They have been drifting there for a few years now and got some pretty decent drivers and cars over there. Jose in the red shirt was the organizer of the drift event and had one of the few FD3S's in Puerto Rico that he actually drifts with. The winner of the Read more [...]

WekFest 2010

I brought the Drift Sumi-e S14 out to the Wekfest SF show earlier in the year. It was actually the day after the Norcal Racing Expo so I ended up doing a back to back show weekend. Much different feel than a track event weekend, but just as tiring. lol The Auto Fashion guys saved me a really pimp parking spot next to their booth, right up front. Thanks Freddy! You can really see the Garage Inc. white pearl paint glow under the garage lights. Rocking that business card fitment. Hellaflush. Big Read more [...]

NorCal Racing Expo 2010

I was invited out to represent the drift car portion of the 2010 NorCal Racing Expo. I brought out my Drift Sumi-e RX-7 amongst the vast array of race vehicles ranging from midget lites to hydroplane racing boats. Some of the most prominent race cars that were on hand where the BCRA Midgets. These midgets run 4 cylinder push rod race engines producing nearly 400hp with a direct drive gearbox on chassis weighing around 900 lbs. That is a pretty crazy power to weight ratio. Must be pretty Read more [...]
