Hello there
I'm new to this board, but I have been reading it for some while.

The norwegian drift team Kamikazedrifters (http://www.kamikazedrifters.com) arranged Norways first Drift day this fall, and I was there and filmed the event.

There is beeing made a official DVD featuring the downhill drifting competition we arranged.

But I filmed lots outside of the competition and have made a 20 minutes long move of that...

Well you get to see some of what we are doing over here in Norway so have a look :D

It was cool but, there's alot of "CHOKI-DORI".
Not alot of turns, but a whole lot of straight-aways.

But, not too bad "all in all"

hehe Henrik..


Well first i'm not "in the drift team" I'm just video filming the event.. and mind, this is just the free runs before and after the competition..

We did a nice downhill drifting competition with three sequential corners and tried to judge a winner and stuff...
But this is reserved for a dvd video so it's not out for public yet, still in editing.

Guys, you simply rock!!!

This is the most impressive video I've seen in recent time and IT'S EUROPEAN! I cannot believe this! At least I couldn't. I really had no idea Norwegians are so far in drifting, I didn't know any Europeans are. For example, german drift challenge is nothing compared to this...

Awesome guys, hats down, thumbs up :) I wanna move to Norway :D

You really did good job, not just driving, which is really good and shows you have lots of skilled drivers, but also cars are awesome and it looks like some are prepped for drifting (and this is europe we're talking about :D), and the latter not the least, you did great job mixing this stuff together. Really good work, I really enjoyed watching it!

Anyway, how much of kamikaze drifters are on this forum? I've got so many Q's to ask! What tires are you using (I find couple years old michelin pilot's best, but I've only tried couple of used tires)?

And is the rx7 driver on this forum? I'm currently in the process of rebuilding an FD and making it street legal drift car and would really like to ask for tips about the setup... Currently my FD is only sucking funds (a lot) and videos like this really helps giving out money for such an old car, hehe, thanks again. Anyway, is he running stock torsen diff or aftermarket clutch type? I'd really appreciate if you can give me some contact of his... Thanks!

Hi.

I'm the only Kamikaze Drifter on the forum, and the team has only to members. Kenneth Moen with the RX-7 and yours truly. Kenneth wouldn't be able to help you much with RX-7 setups as he only drove the RX-7 this once before he sold it and got a ~500bhp 200sx s14.

When it comes to the setup, the RX-7 was bone stock apart from an aftermarket suspension of unknown origin. The car was imported from Germany. What makes his drifting even more impressive was that he used the tires that was allready on the car, Michelin Pilot 235/40-18 and 285-35-18! That's why he spun a couple of times. The 285's was a bit unforgiving to say the least :D

We just startes drifting this autumn, so we haven't tested very many tires yet. So far a set og Kumho 712's had the best balance, but didn't take the abuse to well. They were fine as long as I stayed on the track, but once I started to use the kerbs they just fell apart :( Guess I'll try some Yokohamas or Falkens next.

Yup, it's got a JUN engine capable of 800bhp. Plain crazy! But he will tune it down a lot though. 800 might be hard to control... ;)
