Busted: Fukuoka man arrested over drifting

Post by 93Regina » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:11 pm

FUKUOKA – A 31-year-old man in Fukuoka Prefecture was referred to
prosecutors on Thursday over the sharing of videos of himself drifting
on Instagram. His elementary-school-age son and others recorded the
footage, police said.

Drifting involves sliding a car sideways through a turn.

The man in the town of Soeda, who has allegedly uploaded more than 20
videos of a similar nature since September last year, told
investigators he wanted people to see his driving technique and said
he was "happy" when the number of his Instagram followers increased,
the police said.

A person who viewed the videos contacted the police.

I have a Suzuki Carry like that. The one he is driving doesn't have the 660cc standard engine. No way that engine would support drifting.

Wide tires, and surface appeared to be wet.

Article noted, "The man was charged with violating traffic laws by expanding the width of a small truck beyond the legal limit so as to fit wide tires, and drifting on a road in the prefecture in May this year."

If RWD, its rear-end would be feather light....when corning, one side of rear-end would be "lifting," which would allow wheel spinning on lightest side when powered up.
