Unusual Drifting in Really Small Japanese Pickup

Drifting evolved from a Japanese pastime into a very serious form of motorsport. However, that doesn't mean everybody in the land of the rising sun is taking it seriously.

By use of ingenious engineering and a bit of free time, somebody manned to transform a kei truck into a drifting machine. Kei trucks are, much like kei cars, restricted by law to only 660cc for the engine. They also have to be very small, and this pickup is about the size of the Fiat 500.

The little Suzuki trick is normally used by its owner to haul iron and other heavy metals, but is clearly able to do a lot more. Thanks to an adjustable suspension from a Silvia and a limited slip diff, it can drift with the best of them.

Here are the modifications they made to this Suzuki Carry kei truck:
  • Suzuki Evry Engine
  • Suzuki Cappucino LSD (Limited Slip Drive)
  • Yokohama ADVAN Neova Street Sport Tires
  • Suzuki Every Landy Brakes
  • Nissan Sylvia suspension system

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
