I Figured it deserved a thread of its own.

Vote Ueo! :P

Ueo FTW!! He's entered in the new D1 Street Legal series this year, in a 95ps AE86....you should see him cut it up in that :)

Hahahahah fat as.

He's always seemed more street/privateer-y anyway.

95ps? Whats in it? A 4AC with solexs' and a race grind cam? :P

Dunnooo....the engine code is AE111 4AGE, so that would mean a 20V, and I guess 95ps is more or less what they put out at the wheels...

You know how the D1 videos have the power rating, driver age, turbo size, etc at the top of the screen when someone does their run? That's just what it says for Ueo... :D

UEO is good...no doubt.


But I have to support the fellow skyline driver !!

GO NOMUKEN !!!! :D


Hehehe...

To be serious for a moment I reckon Kazama and Taniguchi are the best drivers in D1.

Speaking of Taniguchi....how come he isnt in the poll ??

I have to go for Ueo and his crazy godlike steering work.

Actually, I was doing a bit of copy/paste from the US D1 site drivers list, and there was no taniguchi...strange.

i own an ae86 and am the biggest fan of ueo (clearly the best ae86 driver on the planet). yet my vote has gone to kazama. ueo seems very timid in nature and i think due to that he lacks consistancy. one day he'll win the next day he wont qualify. while kazama also has lapses of consistency.. thats all they are.. lapses. a simple error vs a driver who is closely matched and he'll finish 3rd instead of 1st.. but when he is on his game he just seems to take down competitor after competitor no matter how good they seem to be driving.

Yeah, I remember Leighton Fine saying pretty much the same thing on consistency wins drift comps.

N.O.B is a whole 'nother story. twice winner of the d1gp.. i still cast my mind back to a final at sugo a few years back where he faced kazama in 3? sudden death battles (green s15 vs red s15) it was a crazy ass battle.. i think taniguchi has bascially done only one thing wrong. messed with a winning formula. he was a champion in his s15 and is obviously used to the chassis since his daily is an s15... he made the switch to the SXE toyota probably due to HKS wanting a current car in the lineup. but it definately hasnt worked. numerous engine troubles, gearbox failures and just bad performances has seen him go from virtually the best to struggling to qualify...

its a shame.

also.. i think Rhys Millen should 'probably' be in that list. best non-jap drifter. IMO

Kazama is a freak of a drifter but he pissed me off in American touge 2.. His grip driving wasn't anything very good at all..

Seriously, i think Orido sucks when come to drifting. Seem so many video of his drift and half the time it's not even smooth.
