I honestly cannot wait to get another opportunity to go meet up with these guys again. If you have been privileged enough to experience drifting in Japan it feels like nothing else; everything is much simpler. There is no ego, there is no “This car looks better because…” or “This car looks shit because…” it is simply guys out to have fun. It should mean nothing more than that.
I was incredibly lucky to go meet Nozomu Sakai and the rest of the guys from MotorFIX last year, and I couldn’t have done it without help from Shane Bingham and Ewan Paterson who run K-Tours Osaka.
Hopefully I will get the opportunity to again go over there next year!
One of the things that I love so much about the 4agze motor is the noise that comes from them. It is like nothing else. There is that unmistakable 4age note coming from the exhaust, but the high pitched whine that the supercharger emits just leaves you speechless. Listening to Mereki Dawson power his baby blue 4agze powered ke70 through the Queensland Raceway Short Track left me in this exact state.
Hey guys, Here is my in-car footage from the MotorFIX 1uz ke70 during my visit to YZ circuit on the 18th of June!

Anyone who has any interest in drifting and E model corollas will have heard of MotorFIX.
For the last 6 years of building my Corolla, MotorFIX has been a constant and ever increasing inspiration for myself. I have always been in awe of every car that has had this workshop’s name associated with it. Whether it be a rusty corolla wagon or immaculate sedan that has been built by this crew.
