The 2017 drift season is fast approaching and after an eventful first season with Team Japspeed now is an ideal time to overhaul the suspension setup of Matt Carter's Skyline R32.
What better way than to replace an upgrade with a brand new set of Japspeed suspension arms. Continue reading
What a weekend! We were delighted to be invited to attend the annual JapFest event last Sunday at the home of British Motorsport, Silverstone where Shane Lynch, Matt Carter and Luke Woodham would be taking part in the Drift Kings competition hosted at the event. Along with a number of BDC teams every driver would battle it out to see who would be crowned Drift King 2016 and with it take the £1000 prize fund. At least that’s how things usually go down but this year the driver’s decided to put a different spin on proceedings.
Prior to the event every driver taking part collectively agreed that putting on an awesome show is more important than prize money and what better way to show this than donating the prize fund to charity (later chosen by the event sponsor). This meant the drivers could spend the day consistently attempting to outdo one another with ever greater entry speeds, ridiculous angles and of course drift trains for the gathered spectators.
However there has to be a winner and on this occasion newly signed Japspeed driver Matt Carter took the title after wowing the judges and fans with whopping 107mph entry speeds as well as the majority of his runs seeing the car enter the first corner at 90° and beyond!
We've had the pleasure of Robbie and Steven of TDP.ie fame's company in our workshop a number of times over the last few months as they designed and test-fitted their new Nissan 370Z Steering Lock Kit using our build as the test bed. The kit is a complete work of art, machined from beautiful billet aluminium. Check out our video below to see Robbie explain some of the key features of TDP.ie's new suspension setup, including the built-in camber, castor and ackermann adjustment.
Our video from Round 6 of the 2014 Maxxis British Drift Championship (held at Anglesey circuit in Wales) is now live, check it out below!
