Are you only searching for magazines that are written in English because most drifting magazines only use Japanese text.

I only know of a U.S. distributor (www.v-opt-usa.com) that offers subscriptions to Japanese car magazines. Or try eBay and search Option, Option2, Drift Tengoku, BM Battle Magazine, etc. But, IMO some of their starting bid prices are a rip off. (starting at $20 USD). For Import Tuner, try e-mailing their subscription department for more info at importtuner@neodata.com .

I'm looking for any drifting mag's, but this website doesn't seem to have much (that I can find anyway). Tengoku or origional Option are my first choices, but where on the site are they?

We are offering an English language Australian drifting magazine packed full of international drifting news from Australian drifting to US drifting to the latest from Japan. Drift Factory will be the first drifting company to carry this publication in the United States. This magazine is extremely similar to Option mag with the exception of being printed in English. This bi-monthly magazine is actually Australian but it covers drifting worldwide and focuses considerably on US and Japanese drift events. Information in this magazine is very cutting edge as Australian drifting has solidified over many years and their proximity to Japan allows them to keep on top of all the newest technology and trends. Upon reading the magazine, it has become clear to us that this is more than just an Australian magazine but could be considered a worldwide magazine due to the coverage of drift events, teams and cars from around the world. Both are in stock and both will be added to our Rewards Store. (http://www.driftfactory.com/rewtemp.htm)
