MORE Charmant footages on Youtube!

Posted in Cool Stuffs on May 12, 2010 by Stanley Carter

Ah.. the wonders of the Internet, more so, le YouTube.

I was just checking my daily video subscription updates and accidentally found some videos of Charmants having a little fun, I then started to dig deeper and discovered there have been some new videos lurking around, I ‘liked’ all of them, favorited all of them, and even subscribed some of them channels, just to make sure if there’s anymore new videos of Charmant, I’d be the first to know!

I know I know~ Enough crap talk, let’s check out the videos~!!

First and foremost, I’d like to show you 2 Charmants doing donuts and figure 8’s together, 1 in black and the other in blue, both of them look F*CKIN IMMACULATE!  Soooo full of win!

How about showing some love for me locals, here are 2 videos of Malaysian Charmants ‘attempting’ to drift:

The 2 drivers obviously still need a whole lot more practice, hehe!  Yet their Charmants are looking sweet too! ^^

Next up is a video of a Charmant having a little fun in what seems like a muddy field or somesort, which actually reminded me of when I first learnt oversteer (wouldn’t call it a drift).

When I first learnt the true fact and basic fundamentals to continuously slide a car is meant for RWD only, I started to perform some ‘experiment’ on my Charmant at a remote place filled with mud, the place was real tight and small, but oh how fun it was back then, the joy and excitement of first experimenting oversteer!

I’d visit the place whenever it rains since I had all the time of the world, the benefit of being a student!  That was how I finesse my steering work and learnt how to properly counter and maintain a slide, with a bone stock Charmant + automatic gearbox, crazy! 😀

Last but not least, a frequent visitor of Edgar’s blog, Yohann!!  I’ve seen one of his videos long ago, shared by Edgar, but I couldn’t believed how in the world had I not subscribed to his YouTube channel until right now!  It seems as though Yohann has been having a whole lot of fun in his trusty Charmant, and he has quite a few videos to share too!  Here are some of them bits:

There’s more, but I’m gonna stop here, if you wanna check out more of Yohann’s videos, just visit his Channel.

Ah, I felt great after having watched all these great Charmants in action!

Another fellow Charmant drifter rocking it hard!

I present to you… a guy that I have no idea what his real name is, LOL! (if any of you know this guy, please enlighten me) all I know is, this guy is in my Facebook contact and he runs with the name ‘Charmant Drift‘, and it’s filled with many pictures of his Charmant, from the build process to the drifting shots.  Thing is… I’m not sure if Edgar has already featured this guy before.. well, no harm featuring the same dude twice. ^^

Let’s check out some of the pictures that are available on his Facebook page:

This Charmant right here is also running on 4AGE, and judging by the looks of it, the driver has no problem with the power issue, respect!  Now check out some of his videos as well!

A track for drifting, a f*ck, how I wish I have 1 of these here in Sibu!
