KANSAI ALL STARS

August 20th, 2021

a few weeks have passed since the last little update from the 3037 S13 getting completely put under the knife at garage REMS. skipping ahead this is an update with a fair few updates in one.

over the past 5-6 weeks the 3037 car has undergone a lot of changes both mechanically and cosmetically purely to enter kansai all stars 2021 in a well presented car, finally. this year is my 3rd year in a row and really wanted to ensure that the car wasn’t looking like it was in previous years. the majority of kansai drivers will do a refresh and makeover once a year and this is the event that is high priority.

after qualifying for nara prefecture this year ( 2 weeks prior ) it was basically go time at N-Style to get the car completely pulled down, cleaner parts such as doors installed and brand new aero from D-MAX in osaka all to be prepped for a candy lick of paint. i have owned this car a little over 3 years now and i feel like this was the perfect time to make the car exactly how it has turned out. the majority of kansai & meihan drivers usually tend to practice and put their budgets towards seat time and non stop maintenance rather than appearances so this is the same mentality i have tried to adopt since buying this car and attempting to get up the ladder at meihan c course. i feel like it would have been a little waste of time and money to buy the car and jump straight into making it pretty without getting to know the car let alone driving meihan.

the car’s rear end got completely cut off and pipe-framed thanks to waki-san at gagare REMS in kagawa over in tokushima. a fuel setup, cooler was also installed along with a GP SPORTS water sprayer kit and TRUST greddy larger oil pan to compensate temperatures for japanese summers. kansai all stars is usually the peak of summer here in japan (obon holiday week) so you have to prepare the car for extremely hot and muggy conditions. cleaner doors were put on and a full D-MAX type 3 aero kit including a brand new carbon bonnet put on the car, as soon as i purchased this car this was always the plan and choice i wanted to go with. i have some very rare wheels stored away which will also be going on the car at a later date but more on that stage soon!

below are a bunch of photos from getting the car stripped, prepped & painted. the lead up to kansai all stars and the event itself. the weather has been extremely horrible the last 2 weeks straight however the sun managed to come out this morning for the first time so i rolled the car out for 20 minutes and took a few photos with my camera along with seeing the candy paint in the sun for the first time. it’s hard to believe it’s the same car but couldn’t be happier i have given this car more life potentially!

at the bottom of this post i have added a little youtube video from the event itself that macey shot off his phone for me – thank you brother.

this years kansai all stars i made it through the 1st 2nd and 3rd rounds of qualifying advancing into the tournament which this year was my goal. top 12 was against kikutani in the grey S15 which i came out on top going through to the top 8. kitayama in the orange 180SX from kyoto managed to do a better run knocking me out which placed me 6th overall in expert which definitely didn’t feel real! i will try my best to get 1st 2nd or 3rd next year and get on the podium for all stars!

a very large thank you to all of those who are newly onboard as supports to myself and SHIRTSTUCKEDIN. i say this quite often but if it wasn’t for these companies and people below none of this would be possible.

D1GP 2021 Round 1 & 2

April 28th, 2021

hello! it has definitely been a minute since i’ve picked up the camera and taken photos – this event last year to be precise. this past weekend was the initial round of D1GP 2021 rounds 1 & 2 held at okubuki ski resort in shiga prefecture, kansai. below are a selected amount of photos captured through my lens over the course of 3 days. D1GP cars and styling of course isn’t too precise within my category of cool looking cars however the more i witness this event and these cars driving i can’t help but to appreciate it more and more. the level of this event, dedication and focus is truly wild in person and super blessed to be apart of it.

the next round is held in tsukuba 2000 course (high speed main) mid to late June so hopefully be able to make it up there and continue shooting as many rounds as possible.

we are working on a small mini-release plus re-stock for SHIRTSTUCKEDIN available this coming Monday 2PM AEST Sunday 9PM PST. following this we are looking to have a much larger re-stock of goods and new items May onwards – thank you each and every single one of you for your support as always x

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
