The Fast And The Furious III: Tokyo Drift

The Fast And The Furious III: Tokyo Drift



Tokyo drift
Finally our waiting is over! After two successfull movies („Fast and Furious“ and „2Fast and 2Furious“) came out a new sequel – Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. First of all I have to warn all Ladies, that you won't find "Casanovas" like Paul Walker in this sequel- altough the producents have tried very hard. In America the premiere of this movie was in June 16th - but we are already now revealing short content of this hot-wheels movie.

How I said in the beginning, we can't find the idol of all women Brian O’Conner in the movie. He was replaced by "troublemaker" Shawn Boswell (played by Lucas Black). Just quess who will always bring him into these troubles?... yes it's true, always it's women, girls, chicks, call it how you want to. Whereas he could have trouble with cops (because of crash in illegal race with children of loaded parents), he will be sent by his family into the Mekka of all street racers - Japan (Tokyo). Directly first day in school he meets Twinkie (Bow Wow), who tries to sell him the same model of sneakers, that is used by Michael Jordan (Made in China of course :D). After long talk they find out that they have the same love - cars. That is why Twinkie takes him to illegal races, that are not taking place in the streets, like he was used to in USA, but in huge grade-level parking lots. After ten minutes Shawn gets into the conflict (as usual because of woman – Neela (Nathalie Kelley)) with Takashi - dude called Drift King.

However Shawn doesn't know who is Takashi – he challenges him to fight in race. Shawn obviously looses and he totaly demolishes Nissan S-15, that Han (Sung Kang) gave to him. Han later makes a decision, that he will show Shawn the secrets of drift – he even donate him a new car - Mitsubishi Evo 9 (I also want friends like this one! :D). Shawn improves so much, that he even defeats his own teacher and also many other street racers. But Drift King can't take, that Neela is attracted by Shawn and he tries to separate them from each other. He kills Han in street race, who blows up in his Mazda RX7. Because Neela doesn't want more trouble, she comes back to Takashi. Shawn can't let it be, so he challenges him to big race duel, where the highest trophy is Neela. And how this soap-opera ends?... well you'll know after..... not commercials but after July 20th in your cinema. Have fun!!!

Soundtrack:


In this soundtrack there are many japan songs, that have very catchy atmosphere. But I still think that this soundtrack won't be so successfull like the soundtrack from 2F&2F. You can hear Ludacris's Act a Fool from every second car on true tuning contest, can't you? How they say many people, many tastes. And which songs can we hear on this soundtrack?

But you are surely interested in cars, that are used in the film. Your waiting is over. And which cars are we talking about?: Nissan 350Z - in three possible models; Mazda RX-7; Mazda RX-8; Ford Mustang; Mitsubishi EVO 9; Nissan S-15; Volkswagen R32; Toyota Chaser; Chevrolet Monte Carlo. So let's start smoothly by the alphabetic order.

CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO


Tokyo drift
Chevrolet Monte Carlo's year of manufaction is 1971. It will show in the film just in the beginning, so I won't tell you about it very much. There are many cars in this film, that I think deserve more attention. As I said Monte Carlo is from 70's 20th century.

It is the real representative of the american car from these times. We can find the huge V8 engine under the hood, and it's horse powers is over number 560. Monte Carlo can achieve 100 km/h in 4,4 seconds and distance 400 metres approximately in 12 seconds, while the ending speed will be around 190 km/h.

FORD MUSTANG 1967 SKYLINE POWERED


Tokyo drift
Ford Mustang 1967 Skyline Powered's year of manufaction is 1967. On this Ford went Shawn in his definitve duel against Drift King.

Exterior:
The exterior of this automobile looks the same as in his serial production. It is painted in the "Viper's style": into the black color with two white stripes. In the front part has the car enormous absorber of pressured air into the engine, which protects engine from overheating. On the left and right side of the chassis are round projectors, that are for Ford Mustang (67's manufaction) typical. The chassis of the rear part is enlarged a little bit – but we are used to that by the Japan modifications. The back side of this Ford is the most sophisticated. There are rear lights, that have very unusual allocation. We can find round ending of exhaust, from Magnaflow productions, lurking from the back. There are also many chromatic accessories on this car. Ones of the most juicy are seven-rayed discs made by VOLK Racing Grey GT-7 with 19x9 inches in the front and 19x10 inches in the back. On the discs, we have Toyo Proxes T1R tyres (in the front 245/35 R19, in the back 275/35 R19).

Interior:
There are many sporty accessories in the interior: seats- Year one (factory), seat belts DIEST, aluminium pedals, many alarms, that are informing us about actual state of the car.

Performance:
Into these Mustang modificators have installed engine with mark RB26 from Nissan Skyline (year of manufaction 2001) right in the beginning. The same destiny had also transmission. Transmission from serial model was replaced by 5-grade manual transmission from Nissan Skyline ´98. In the gas system were almost no changes done (components stayed from serial model). Thanks to these changes, the self-confidence and performance of Mustang was raised. Now under the hood we can find megastable - 340 horse powers (by 7300 speed in minute). It can accelerate to 100 km/h in app. 5,4 secs and 400 m distance is achieved in 13.5 secs with ending speed 180 km/h. Well it's not bad for the old veteran, is it? Well and if you accidently would like to stop this beauty, there are brake disks Wilwood and brakers from KYB Rears.

Mazda RX-7


Tokyo drift
As a second car used in the movie comes Han's Mazda RX-7. We have seen RX-7 in all Fast and Furious movies, but I have to admire, that it was the best modified in this sequel. But it's a pitty that the scenario was written like this amazing car will "fall for mother land".

Exterior:
By the meaning of mine Mazda RX-7 is the best tuned car in the film, even though it is not playing the main role. The look of exterior has been given by Veilside, that has placed enlarged bodykit, named Veilside Fortune RX-7 Body Kit, on this four-wheeled gas-powered devil. The front bumper is divided into one central and two side sections (fullfilled by gray metal-mantles), that are guiding the air into the cooler of the engine and balancing the pressure on the both axles, at the same time. Wide Body (elnarging bodykit), have secured the aerodinamics and also higher security of the car, in the way, that it guides cool air into both (front and back) brake discs, and takes away the hot air from them. The back side of the car is as same as front side very smoothly modified. On the bottom side we can find diffuser, that regulates the stream of air under and past the car.

The pressing wing is making a bigger pressure on the rear axle and also on the powered wheels. The wing is painted into the color of chassis. The serial side-mirrors have been changed into sporty "F1 style". The contact with road is work of 5-rayed chromatic wheels made by Veilside Andrew EVO-V (19x9 inches in the front and 19x12 inches in the back). These discs are slippered into Pirelli P Zero's tyres with measures 255/30 ZR19 (in the front) and 315/25 ZR19 (in the back). The sporty look is also underlined by color combination used on the car. Black and shiny orange (PBC31 Sunset), made by House Of Kolor.

Interior:
The interior of Mazda RX-7 is sophisticated into every small detail. As it should be in every tuned car. Very comfortable and secure seats from Veilside company model D1 R and seat belts from Sparco is very attractive combination. About every piece of car is driver informed by EURO meters (Complet Meter Set). These clocks are also informing about the NOS system, that's bottle is situated between the seats. It is clear thing, that tuners are mad into good music. And in this sweety we have quite excellent equipment:
DVD stereo: Sanyo Model ECD - T1780DV
8" monitor: Alpine TVE - T850
Amplifier: Alpine MRV - F450
Subwoofer: Alpine WR - 1221D
Repros: Alpine SPR - 174A
Installation: Veilside

Performance:
Completely tuned engine was made by Veilside. Modifiers have installed control unit Apexera Power FC, Turbokit T042 and intercooler by HKS, gas pumps GT-R and carbon conjunction from ATS. Car's deep thunder-sound is work of modified exhaust Veilside Titanium. High performance had to be offset by security of armature's brake system. These modifications made the rotary moment into 306 horse powers (225kW by 6650 powers in minute). This car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds and 400 metres distance will break in 14,1 seconds (ending speed 168,1 km/h)

MAZDA RX-8:


Tokyo drift
Which two things are number one for men, that like good tuning? Yes it is true. Wonderful girls and the best tuned cars. This fact was known also for the scenarists, so they added to Mazda RX-8 also actress Nathalie Kelley (Neela). That's so great look :D.

Exterior:
The same as RX-7 this RX-8 has the bodykit completely made by Veilside named Veilside Body Kit D1-GT. The front bumper is divided into one central and two side sections that are fullfilled by gray metal-mantles. The hood is curved like it could take warm air away from engine.

The side-brims are adjusted so, they fit to whole design of the car. In the front mudguard are gaps, that are guiding air from the brake disks. Rear bumper is the most astonishing part of the car. On the bottom side is diffuser, that regulates the stream of air under and past the car and duplex exhaust system ended by round endings. The pressing wing called Veilside GT is making a bigger pressure on powered wheels. To make the exterior complete it has been painted with three colors - black, blue and lighty-blue. It has been painted by Jack's Auto Body.

Interior: The adjustement is very sporty (sporty steering wheel Nardi, aluminium pedals, new head of gear shift and Takata's sport seats).

Performance: Typical for tuning of 1.3 sized wankel's engine (typical for Mazda) is adding turbokit and control unit from Greddy company. These adjustments made performance rise from 191 horse powers to 238 horse powers (175kW). With so tuned engine Mazda RX-8 can accelerate from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in 6,7 seconds. And distance of 400 metres are made by this unite car in 14,9 seconds.

MITSUBISHI EVO IX:


Tokyo drift
Mine opinion is that there is no real tuner in the world, that has never heard about a car with three diamonds in it's badge – we are surely talking about Mitsubishi with type mark EVO. We know ten series of this idol car of all tuners, in these days. In this sequel of Fast and Furious we will see it's nineth serie, that is driven by the main character Shawn.

Exterior:
The change of EVO's 9 appearance was work of enlarging bodykit (wide body), that was made by company called APR. She also made the design of new sporty mirrors and huge pressing wing – both of them are from carbon. The car is painted into black and red combination, that has been developed by the most top trends of japan tune-world. The whole car is standing on black 19 inches wheels, under the name Ray's Wheels G-Games 99B ( in the front and also in the back with measurements 19x8,5 inches). These discs are slippered into the tyres named Toyo Proxes T1R with measurements 255/35 ZR19.

Interior:
So, what can we find in the interior? Meters from Auto Meter, wheel-control from APR, seats Recaro Black, seat belts made by Takata.

Performance:
2,0L turbo-supplied DOHC 4G63, air system RMR, springs by Eibach Springs, exhaust system RMR, brakes made by Brembo.
