Todd Waldons PS13

October 18th, 2011

So with my site filling your minds with content from Japan I wanted to take this moment to share with you an image of a car that built and shot in Australia. From recent posts in Japan you might remember the name Todd Waldon or TJ, well this is his PS13. Fortunately enough I was able to shoot the car before it got sold to someone down south. Now, the car has been repainted white, raised and look nothing like it does in this shot. This, without a doubt was in its prime, exactly how TJ wanted it. This was taken an hour and a bit west of Brisbane on a long dirt road with kangaroo signs lining the sides, quite Australian yes? There has been no car built quite like this in Australia and that’s exactly why it was such a big hit to the community. I commend Todd on building such an aggressive and stanced s-chassis, it definitely needs to happen more. Over the next week or so I will be putting more images up, for now enjoy this one! x

When you think of Bihoku Circuit, I’m sure the majority of you think of the Highland layout which is the one above, yes the quick, snappy, 3rd gear entry that rides along a huge dirt bank that has claimed too many cars over the years. It was a last minute decision after dinner the night before that a few of us boys head down to Okayama from Sakai to Bihoku, which isn’t a short drive. Arriving nice and early at the circuit we basically had it all to ourselves besides another 4-5 cars, consisting of AE86’s, JZX and a KP61.

When you enter the gates to Bihoku you have to drive past this little circuit to get out the back where the Highland track is. I have never heard, or seen any photos of this particular track at Bihoku so I was super stoked when I saw it! Todd and I spent a few hours on this throughout the day, shooting in black and white film. The course is very tight from little crests that run through trees and extra tight hairpins. I can’t wait to show the rest of this set x

This was the second night into our Japan trip with K-Tours. Here we are after a big night of preparing the cars for Suzuka for 2-3 nights. Right after leaving Shane’s we stopped into the local convenience store to grab some treats for the 3 hour driver and then some fuel. Here are some photos I snapped during the trip. Here is John Dollison filling up his PS13.

Erin Sykes from JDM Garage in his Kouki S14. The car has had a huge transformation and can’t wait to shoot it when I head back over to Japan, the new R33 GT-R guards on the rear give it a fat ass appearance.

Here I am hanging out the window leaving the service station after filling up. This photo is the back of Todd’s Type-X and in front half a dozen drift cars on a road trip to Suzuka.

Here we are on the way riding behind Todd’s slammed RPS13. This was before our first stop and before I took over driving from Buckna in his SR20 C33 Laurel.

Finally we have Shane and Matt in the Joy-Pop keeping at the back of the pack to make sure everyone sticks together through the toll points etc. I really do miss this.

Taking a look over this page I noticed I have posted a lot of action photos, so here is a static. This photo was taken a few days into my second trip with K-Tours at Suzuka Twin Circuit in Suzuka of Todd’s Hot Road RPS13 sitting flush on AVS5’s and XT7’s. One thing I loved about the sunsets was the ability to see the orb itself due to all the pollution, not that that is a good thing but it definitely made for some fantastic photos. One thing you may notice about this photo is the small watermark on the bottom right. From now on I will be applying these to all images photographed by me. As you may know we’ve been asking some questions on our Facebook asking what you’d like us to improve on. Reading over the comments I’ve made two decisions; one being to watermark my images and the other one to add a Desktops section to the site. I appreciate all your comments and feedback. Casey x

Continuing sorting through more photos from Motorland Suzuka I came across this particular one of TJ Waldon in his HotRoad Type X RPS13, this image could almost sum up why I love the Motorland circuit as much as I do, the surroundings and the amount of trees and natural things you have to work with is absolutely awesome. It took a few attempts to get this photo as the camera had a few focus problems with all the trees in the way, but this is pretty close to what I was aiming for.

This photo may look a little familiar to you as you have most probably seen an image taken from the same night on the same road at a different angle. Here is a more detailed shot of Todd & Nathans s-chassis parked up on one of the main roads leading into Shinsaibashi, the heart of Osaka City. I have to say it was quite surreal witnessing 9 or so beaten drift cars parked up along a main road with the hazards flashing.

Here is TJ – Todd Waldon’s Japanese drifter, a Type X RPS13 dropped on 17″ Work XT-7’s and 18″ AVS Model 5’s on the rear which works wonders for the Type X and J-Blood aero. Shooting this car was a real pleasure. The second night of being in Japan we were prepping the cars until 2-3am in the morning in order to make the Motorland Suzuka in a few hours. This photo was taken at around 1am in the morning whilst testing the rear guards on TJ’s car. Awesome Japanese drift car parked up a service station filling up looking ever so stylish, quite authentic? I think so.
