The rain isn't all bad. Sometimes the rain is a good thing, especially if you like conserving tires!
Check out this photo, featuring an AE71, aka nana-ichi Corolla Levin from drift team NA Works. NA Works has been known for having some of the coolest looking TE71s and AE71s in Japan for quite some time. Back in the days when I was shooting for Hashiriya Battle Magazine, NA Works was in BM like every single month, with their medium gray 4AG 20v AE71! And with good reason! Awesome cars and awesome driving.
