RacepoD Final Round 2012

What's up guys. Last weekend has been a bit busy since the final round of RacepoD National Drift Series was held on the weekend. RacepoD is a pro-am drift competition which is held all over Malaysia. This weekend was in the Elite Speedway in USJ, Selangor.

Some of the names competing on that day was Tan Tat Wei, Mervyn Nakamura, Rocker Loh Kevin Rajoo and others. It went on for two days where qualifying was on Saturday and the actual competition was on Sunday. For this round, Mervyn Nakamura out-did himself by not only becoming first in qualifying but also by winning this round. Whereas 2nd was won by Deric Lim and 3rd by Tan Tat Wei.

Saturday Night Drift Assault 53.0

What's up guys. It feels good to be back in Speed City KL. In the month of November, SCKL reuses the Formula Drift Malaysia track layout. On that night, we had a small family where Tengku Djan, brother Ezan, and their cousin showed up at the event. Most of the other star drifters were absent since that weekend was filled with other Drift events. For example Federation D Racepod National Drift Series (see next post). This week, SCKL welcomed Men Drives Move of MDM. (Not Malaysian Domestic Market). These guys consist on Perodua Kenaris or Daihatsu Move minivan. Aside from that, we witnessed some sibling rivalry when Djan and Ezan went side by side on the track. Well that's all from me. Peace!

I witnessed singing, burlesque performance, and even magic acts.

A day with Zizan Razak and his M7 Japan Mitsubishi Evo CZ4A

What's up guys. It all started out like any typical Tuesday morning. But today, I received a phone call from Wan Bro telling my to come to Speed City KL. Still wondering why, I just went there anyways. Once there I see Zizan Razak learning how to drift.
Zizan Razak
Now for those who don't know, Zizan is a comedian based from the show Raja Lawak and also happens to be an ambassador for M7 Japan. So once there, we all went out for lunch in the afternoon. After that, we were at Momentum Motorsport to grab ourselves some racing gear.

Wan Bro the boss
After shopping, we all got back to SCKL to resume Zizan's drift session. While he was doing that, I had a chance to check out his daily driver. The M7 400R spec Mitsubishi Evolution CZ4A. The stock Evo CZ4A doesn't run on the 4G powerplant anymore. Instead, it runs on a 4B11T 4 cyl. Mivec Turbo outputting 300bhp.

Now Zizan's CZ4A is equipped with a few nice extras. Some of the mods on this ride are M7 oil catch tank, M7 intercooler, M7 brake pads, M7 cat-back exhaust, M7 R.A.C.E. ECU Flach, gauges and others. This car also looks good with its Enkei GTC01s wrapped with Toyo T1 Sport tires. Well, that's all from me, peace!
