So this drift matsuri trip I convinced a ton of Texas friends to take the Japan plunge with me and travel across the world to my favorite track, Ebisu Circuit. This made the trip super special. We have the normal crew like Adam LZ, Chelsea Denofa, and all the rest, but we also have the people I actually live with and see every day at home too! Lone Star Drift drivers, the winner of TXSL, adults, kids, random strangers that just tag along. We pile in four deep in our JZX100 and go drift until the wheels fall off, literally.
Some funny side notes, Fielding’s R33 literally never ran on the trip. My JZX100 gets destroyed. The TXSL S13 Silvia nuked the motor, we think due to crappy gas. More cars got rolled at this Matsuri than I had ever seen. But overall, we had an amazing time! Oh, and my wheels fell off THREE times, it was brutal. I had to take the wheels off too many times to redo the hand brake stuff in the back, and it never really worked. My car broke nearly every day of the trip, that was pretty rough. But it was still amazing! – Aaron
