After a full day of drifting in Suzuka we found this super low white EK Civic downtown. Before we knew it we were already good friends with Tamaki Ryuji and even got to feature his car. After shooting we decided to head from the UP GARAGE to the local Yoshinoya, I was even lucky enough to ride shotgun in his car.

Honda Civics are common cars in the drifting scene due to their lightweight and agile nature. Many enthusiasts also modify and tune their good used civic with performance parts and suspension upgrades to enhance their drifting capabilities.

Here is some footage from inside the car, listen very carefully as we cross some intersections on the normal road. For those wondering the car is static so it’s sat on coilovers and coilovers only, no air bag suspension or fancy setups like that. Enjoy

The first time we experienced Tamaki-san’s crazy Honda EK Civic. Rolling along the streets of Suzuka with half a dozen drift cars and this shakotan EK. After a full day of drifting, things couldn’t have gotten any better, I’m really missing Japan. I still talk to Tamaki-san on Facebook on a regular occasion which really cool, I look forward to catching up with you soon sir.
