3037 S13 update following up the run-in day at suzuka twin the car has now had it’s full tune setting back at PRO SHOP DIVERSION by satoshi-san making amazing response and power.

brief run-down of the new motor setup: 2.1L SR20DET HKS 87mm pistons HKS 56T 3037 HKS 256 cams final power: 1.47kg low boost 489HP 1.6kg high boost 499HP – i will be posting some photos of the engine bay very soon – big love always caseyyy x

scraping into winter in late 2021 we had the opportunity to test some new tires developed by VALINO tires international collaborated with the infamous magazine drift tengoku. the model that was relooked and modelled was their base grip GREEVA 08D in hopes to retain drivers feedback by holding a one-tire-make competition at fuji speedway drift course. with naoki-san being a judge next to kawasaki-san he gave us a heads up on the event a few months prior in which a whole group of us from kansai made the trip north to shizuoka.

the day ran 2-3 practice sessions and then into qualifying from there the winner would be decided based upon the highest level of points acquired during a solo run however post qualifying we had opted to the judges we run more of a competition due to there being some sunlight left. i qualified 4th with a 98.9 just scraping into battles which started and ended against ryusei akiba – a rookie D1GP driver from 2021.

an extremely fun day – the 2530 practice car has done nothing but serve its purpose over the past 3-4 months straight of driving. the end of 2021 i have managed to drive meihan a lot and also 3 new courses i have yet to drive; tokachi all the way north in hokkaido, ebisu minami in fukushima and finally doripa, fuji speedway in shizuoka in which i am very blessed for, as always. just over a month of finalising some finer details on the back end of youtube we are finally good to keep filming and uploading so here is another RAW video from this day for your viewing pleasure. photos by fujihara-san.

let’s all have a great start to 2022 and continue to spread positivity, love and kindness. i feel like we are close to the light at the end of the tunnel with things healing back to a better normal. lovee always, caseyy x

Over the next week or so I will be working on a new video, this time from Meihan. I think it’s a good idea gathering all my footage from the 2 days we visited the circuit and throw it into a clip for you guys to see what It’s really like, as you know photos can only express so much. Seeing the cars from a wide perspective run along the wall only a few centimetres away will definitely get your heart pumping. Stay tuned.

Whilst on the subject of my Japan Video I thought it would be a perfect time to post this photo of one of the S15’s featured in the video throwing down some unbelievable runs. If you haven’t seen the video, be sure to check it out here. Out of all the photos I managed to capture that Friday night, this was by far one of my favourite photos and will be a night I will remember for the rest of my life, I can’t wait to hit Japan again in a few months. Please, if you want to share this image, just link back to the blog. Thanks.

I think I’ve put this off for long enough now, I woke up this morning remembering I still have the video to post from my most recent trip to Japan. Just to tease you a little more I’ve edited up two direct screen grabs from the 4 minute clip to get you a little bit more excited for the release. I have to say some of the footage is pretty surreal but the video itself isn’t too great as it was my first time editing a video.

The video has been kept simple with a nice bit of music over the top but nothing too overpowering so you can still hear the amazing noises some of the cars put out. Singular runs, trains up to several cars a time and some amazing twin action from these 2 S15’s, I will be posting the video on the site within the next 48 hours so stay tuned! Casey.
