VIDEO: UNUSUAL DRIFT! Sideways and Stoppies with Kei Trucks

kei truck drift

Okay, so there’s nothing nostalgic about a Suzuki Carry. However, we fully approve of modifying your company kei truck with a Suzuki Every turbo, a Cappuccino rear end, and a Silvia(!) coilover setup for the express purposes of drifting said company truck. It’s undiluted sunshine glee.

But! Is it as much fun as one-box endos? Thankfully D1 driver Ken Nomura and Drift Tengoku editor-in-chief Ryusuke Kawasaki are here to answer those pressing questions in a hilariously titled segment called “Unusual Drift!” It’s probably a good thing that kei trucks are illegal here.

    too cool man…

    one thing they need to do is to put a couple of skis (or roller blade things) on the front bumper to get a bit more sliding.

      How about a police bull bar on the front bumper so it will grip the road and roll forward more?

    I’ve seen some registered here and there. Catalina Island has (had?), some of the National Parks have a few, and I saw a whole fleet of the kei vans being sold off as surplus from Barking Sands Missile Range on Kauai a few years back.

      But are they legal for road use? Freeway use if the need arose?

        Generally kei trucks are not legal for highway use. You can get them registered as farm vehicles in many states but you’re not technically allowed to go over 55mph or on the freeways.
