Welcome Home!

So, my Charmant’s finally home, yet I still haven’t fully settled the repair bills~ T_T

Daihatsu Charmant 4AGE at home

Anyways, although I got the car back, I may need to send it back very soon for the installation of a fuel pressure regulator, since I’m currently using the stock 16v 180cc injector, which is quite lacking considering on the fact that I’m now running on a slightly higher compression 4AGE, I may need to increase it to 230cc for the best performance, and also to resolve the current knocking issues during higher rpms.

I love my Charmant, but I hate spending so much money on it, when I have so many other more important things that I should be spending on… damn!

The ‘Ken Block’ from Land of the Rising Sun!

Spotted this video just now from my YouTube subscription, appears to be some Japanese Show where they showcases the elite drifting skills of one of the senior Team Orange driver, Tanaka san!

There’s plenty of hilarious moments in there, especially the miniature trike thingy where they’re imitating the famous Ken Block’ish segway stunt.

The last stunt is amazing in the fact that although Tanaka only succeeded after the 20th attempt, it’s AMAZING that he NEVER hit the doll even once! I could be wrong though, since the video didn’t actually showed all 20 attempts, but man if he really didn’t hit it from all those attempts…. now that to me…is MAD skills!

Of course, that is still no denying that if the guy would to really use his own head for the stunt, that’d be way too suicidal! LOL!

Malaysia Boleh!

SR powered TE pickup with NOS

Now this is one heck of a drift ride, built by ACE (if I’m not mistaken), this is a Toyota Corolla TE pickup! ¬†Instead of going with the usual Toyota motor, this TE pickup is mated with a Nissan SR20VE motor coupled with some extra dose of NOS as well, what more can I say, this is sure as heck one of the most unique TE cars I’ve come across, too bad this is the most information I can get as I’m still looking to find out more about the car, would be nice to know it’s full spec and more shots of the engine bay as well as the interior, anyone?
