S-Chassis And More At Tuner Challenge

Posted by Alex Nunez on

What’s up guys, here are a bunch of pics from D-Sport’s Tuner Challenge event at Mobara Twin Circuit in Chiba Japan. I don’t really have a storyline other than it was really fun and the people were awesome. Thanks to the D-Sport team, we were able to go on ride alongs with a few D1 drivers which was insane. But, we had a hell of a time and it was way warmer than last year so everyone was happy about that.

Anyway, I’ll try my best to give some detail on each pic… plenty of S-Chassis in these pics but other cars as well so please enjoy! Also, if you want to see the JZX100’s / Chasers separately, CLICK HERE to check out my last post.

Japan 180SX Nissan nismo

This S13 is super clean and I believe I saw it last year when we attended the same event. At first glance, I was not sure what wheels these were since they looked to be dual drilled (made to fit two different bolt patterns). They have Made in Japan and Forged so I think they are Nismo factory spec wheels. Really like the bronze and red combo om this S13.

There were a few 180sx’ (240sx here in the US)… as I mentioned in my JZX100 post, it seems the Chaser is the go-to car for drift/street drivers here. That’s solely based on my few trips to Japan drift events.

Drifting in Japan Believe it or not, this is an S15. Even though it is extra ridiculous, it’s definitely fun watching it drift. Also, it’s actually really well put together if you ask me. Haters gone hate 😉

Lexus GS300 Drift Car Manual Always a pleasure seeing a Lexus GS300 drift/race car since I don’t think they were available with manual transmission from the factory.

BMW in Japan Drift CarEven some European cars were in attendance – TEAM YURO! Not sure if this is the 2JZ powered E92…BMW in Japan. A BMW E92 I think on Work Emotion CR 2 Piece wheels. I’m all about Japan-made wheels on Euro cars.

SC300 Lexus drift car in Japan Good looking SC300 / Soarer on I believe WedSport wheels? Not 100% on that. Lexus Drift car sc300 Japan.
