We’re back with more shots from the recent drift/grip festival hosted by Tec-Art’s at Nikko Circuit. Cars were divided into three classes, with practice sessions all morning, and competition in the afternoon. The event was also covered by Japanese tuning magazine G-Works, so our readers in Japan can look for that in their next issue. As for our photos, check the rest out below.

AE86 tuning shop Tec-Art’s hosted an open track day at Nikko Circuit. There was an interesting variety of cars that turned up for the event, which split the track time between drift and grip. The weather was a bit sketchy at times, but there was no shortage of circuit action. Some highlights after the jump.
As you may have read in ‘Part I’ there was a new addition to the days events in the form of the Track to Street wall clip challenge. This was abit of an experiment on our behalf and fortunately the guys and girls at Hori Dori were happy with what we planned and let it go on.
As you can see in the above photo some choose to adopt the ‘Hellawallflush’ movement to great success. Continue reading

The start of autumn in Japan means a lot of car shows take place as the weather becomes a bit cooler. Early autumn’s lack of race events in my area was more than made up for in the amount of amazing machinery on display at various meet-ups. Most recently, Option Magazine had a meeting to commemorate their 30th Anniversary as a publication.
I spotted this clean and simple MkIII Jetta at Hellaflush and wanted to take a closer look. I may be a bit biased, as I am the owner of a black MkIII Jetta myself, but central Japan’s ShermanOaksCustoms demonstrate how a few well-executed details and a bit of stance can go a long way.
In the second part of our look at Hellaflush Japan, we’ll continue with the huge variety of cars on display at the show’s Fuji Speedway event area. Can’t hurt to kick things off with the infamous RB30DE-powered Carbon-Z from Rocky Auto, can it? This thing is just unreal!
Hellaflush’s first big event on Japanese shores was a huge success, to say the least. While its roots come directly from Japanese custom automotive culture, the term “hellaflush” was first associated with a scene that was technically born Stateside. That said, Japan may be the place where Hellaflush is at its biggest and best.
