There are some cars that grab your attention on the track, and then you
might even be lucky enough to experience that 5, maybe 10 minutes of
that same car on the street. Not often does it happen in Australia due
to the laws and tightness of police. After seeing this machine out on
track in action a week prior to this shoot, it rushed through my skull
that It would be ideal to shoot it. WIth a camera of course…
I think everyone on the world wide web should enjoy a bit of
Australia's local drift scene cars. This might not be the 'hottest' R31
Skyline, but for the Australian scene this thing is pretty off chops.
This Ladies & Gentlemen, is Justin Fankhauser's R31 Skyline Drift
A full set of Superlites finishes the car in style, WIth a width of 10" all around, stretched to perfection.
Perfect ride height, and almost perfect wheel fitment, this car is set off like a ticking time bomb.
Twin Pipes are a big thing over here and are very common on a lot of drift
cars. So It's nice to see a dirty big cannon with lots of exhaust burn
melted onto the rear bumper.
Now that the exterior has been exposed, lets take a closer look, and
how this machine is ran. RB30ET – 10:1 Compression, boosted by a T04E
with a 40mm Trust Copy External Gate.
Where the work…
Moving on to the motion shots…
There is so much contrast created with the vibrant blues of the car…
…and the natural greens of the forest.
Imagine this, your checking your settings on your camera, looking
through the viewfinder, making sure the focusing is 100% ready and
and then you glance over and see this.
And back again…
Did I mention he drifts on track as well?
WIth his final battle leaving him in 2nd place, he was over the moon.
Justin on the far right hand side…
Justin would love to thank his two major helpers / sponsors.
