Initial D Movie

Today we talk about Movie with cars. Some car are famous becuase of it appear in the Movie. Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-APEX or in short "AE86" was well know in this movie, and it intro the "Drift" to public.

Drifting refers to a driving technique and to a motor sport where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels through turns, while preserving vehicle control and a high exit speed. A car is said to be drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle prior to the corner apex, and the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa), and the driver is controlling these factors.

The story are base on the anime and manga, focus on the world of illegal Japanese street racing, where all the action is concentrated in the mountain passes and never in cities nor urban areas, and the drift racing style is emphasized in particular.

One of my most favorite scenes in the movie is when Takumi had to drive fast while keeping all the tofu from getting destroyed and keeping the water from spilling over the cup. And for those who don't know what the decal means, it says Fujiwara Toufu Mise(Fujiwara Tofu Shop).
