January 17th, 2021

welcome to the preview of our first collection of two-thousand-twenty-one. this particular release isn’t anywhere near the scale to some of our previous ones through the past 24 months however we have been spending a lot of time adjusting and refining our popular and staple items to SHIRTSTUCKEDIN.

the newest V3 version of our driving force racing gloves feature a new 50/50 mix of suede and leather materials to ensure the highest of grip across the board of all steering wheel makes and models. paired with a fire-resistant nomex material available in 20 color variant combinations through sizes XS-XL. a re-directed stitching line along the underside of the glove down towards the thumb has been added and re-directed to ensure a much more naked fit and overall feel in comparison to our previous V1 & V2 models.

another new variant are our V2 version of our driving force air-vent drink & tobacco holders which are now made in Japan. these cup holders feature many needed upgrades such as; pop-riveted metal clips, foam inserts, new & much larger logos printed in super high quality ink on the front in silver chrome & yellow variants. this particular company has contracted out to many large motorsport companies from the 1980s onwards such as NISMO providing an extremely high quality product to be featured inside of your car’s interior.

this first week back in the office has been extremely full on with order processing, emails & final planning for our first, initial release of 2021. there are always higher priority jobs to do with my mental focus towards SHIRTSTUCKEDIN however i’ve been wanting to get around to cutting and posting these onboard RAW videos for quite some time now. footage from last years seimi tanaka drift competition day held at TKL (tokushima kartland) in tokushima prefecture.

after flying back to japan post summer holidays in early 2020 the 3037 car got a new bottom end rebuild from SKY MOTORS (takumi-san) and engine setting by the one and only (PRO SHOP DIVERISON) (satoshi-san). this was the first event i had driven it after everything had been done and it was a completely new car.

being early february and deep on an island meant it was still cold, like really really cold. high grip tires and extremely low circuit temperatures is something i’ve not really ever had any practice or experience with before. i entered the mini-competition post lunch in expert class and ended up placing 4th. drove the entire day which included lots of practice, single runs to feel a lot of different lines, angles and things out with the car, battles and just fun tsuiso driving with friends. i hope you enjoy the video, more to come very soon. caseyy xxx

a small reminder that our first release of 2021 will be available january 17th 8PM PST – january 18th 2PM AEST (this will be including some very popular and staple products to SHIRTSTUCKEDIN). we will be doing a few more blogs posts this week to further showcase everything that will be available i want to thank each and everyone of you for your ongoing support. let’s stay confident and have an amazing 2021 – big love x

MEIHAN C – HITOMI GO

July 13th, 2020

meihan sports land yesterday for HITOMIGO free practice and mini-doricon. have been trying to practice as much as possible lately. car is feeling really good since a few things were changed over a month or so ago. the whole setup as a whole is really good at this stage especially at C course.

managed to place 3rd in expert. have to fix a few minor things which will help a lot at meihan this week before kansai all stars qualifying this saturday. also a massive thank you to everyone who has puchased items through the store as of late and your extended patience in regards to shipping times and the global pandemic. big love, caseyy x

last minute decision to head up to tsukuba circuit with nakamura naoki and takumi to grab a few photos of naoki’s 2020 D1GP S15 in which he was testing since being re-tuned and a few other things ironed out for this years season. managed to make it it up to ibaraki prefecture for the day and back to nara prefecture in just under 24 hours which meant no sleep.

going to do my best to try and attend the majority of rounds of D1GP this year to shoot and document pending the corona virus situation and also my visa. for now enjoy these few selects from yesterday. casey x

with the main event of kansai all stars getting closer and closer there are only a few prefectures left for qualifying. osaka took place yesterday at meihan sports land, c course. following this the only prefecture remaining will be shiga-ken due to run later this month.

since the last day of driving for nara and mie-ken qualifying there were a few things i needed to amend with the car. with the mechanical skills and help of Naoki-san and the boys at N-STYLE the car was ready a few days before which meant i was able to head out for more practice.

the drive from jake’s and i’s new place in nara is about 20ish minutes on low roads (free) to meihan, super close and convenient. usually there is a decent convoy going out together in a pack however this day it was just myself to soon meet a few friends at the circuit. gas stand photo on a humid, rainy morning. summer is coming.

one of those people being ryota / SPLASH in his newly finished TD-06 kouki S14 silvia. this was recently completed and ready for shake-down by the hands of both ryota and takumi from SKY MOTORS. this was ryota’s first day back in his faster car, recently driving his missile which is just completely factory engine setup. ryota has been a strong contender for kansai all stars in the previous years representing osaka and was back for this years qualifying in hopes to retain that spot.

braden was also out for qualifying in his T517 S14. residing in osaka for the past 5-6 years this was his first time having a crack at being a competitor in this years kansai all stars.

tsuneda-san from NEO STYLE cafe and tuning with no days off. here looking over settings on his wife’s S15. this is the very talented fellow that tuned my turbo, 3037 car. tsuneda has been fiddling and learning his way around multiple computers and SR20s for the past 23 years and is very known in the kansai region of japan.

hiro from MIDNIGHT GARAGE MILK TEA was also back out in force and has been back into meihan recently after a little break…

…along with yuya and naru.

akun, as always was there in his factory and reliable 1JZ S15 and managed to qualify second out of a total 16 drivers.

takumi was not only judging for osaka but was out driving also however didn’t get too much driving in with a broken 3rd gear in his NISMO cross mission 6 speed.

driving to the circuit, driving all day and driving home safely without next to no dramas will forever be a good day. another day with 0 problems. car didn’t breach 73 degrees. time for another look over and some more simple maintenance and hopefully be back out for another few practice days before all stars early to mid next month 🙂 caseyy xx

GX71 in kagoshima springs. still have so many images from trips far down south to kyüshü i need to sort, edit and upload at some stage which showcase some of the coolest, rarest cars i’ve ever come across. for now enjoy this photo of takeshi-san’s nana-ichi x
