For the past several years now, they've been featured at an annual extreme sports event at Ebisu Circuit called "Big X."

I love their 6+ car manji drifts as well as the drifting with motorcross guys jumping over them while they drift.

S13 Drifting Crash

I can't tell exactly where this happened, other than it looks like Japan, but it seems that the second S13 in this clip was trying to make maximum use of the momentum generated by a feint technique in order to get his car pitched as far sideways as possible. Based on the track layout, I think that he had more than enough momentum to get his car sideways and carry himself through the corner, without having to feint left to right like that.

VIP Style

This would probably be a very informative video... if you speak Japanese. Looks like they're going over some basics of VIP style like big wheels, impressive wheel offsets, lowered suspension, body kits, and most importantly, luxury vehicles. People have different opinions of what kinds of cars can be VIP, but overall VIP cars are high end, Japanese luxury cars. You can apply VIP style to cheaper, non-luxury vehicles, but you'll be sure to draw some scrutiny from the VIP enthusiast.
