Matsuri – Queensland

Dreams do come true. if you read my Kidsheart post you know that i have been a huge fan of Tezuka since he 1st came to australia, rather strange considering i'm not hugly into drifting. I think it was more the car control and see what he could do with a car that made me sit back and go wow. Fast forward over 10 years Ciscokids is going well with parts selling, S.A Matsuri was a blast and it was about time we did another trip. Queensland has always been my favorite drift scene, having gone to events with the Auszoku guy's when i was up there and just seeing the quality of car's and driving was exciting to watch. very different at the time to the melbourne scene of missiles and rust. so the opportunity came up to bring Tsuyoshi Tezuka to QLD for Drift matsuri, we had more…

Kidsheart

After meeting my idol Tsuyoshi Tezuka at a Full Lock drift day at Calder Park, I had wanted go to Kidsheart to see his car in person for over 10 years.  Having owned a 1JZ Cressida and now the Kidsheart/HKS JZX81 Yamaha edition this was like the holy place for all things X Chassis related.

We didn’t know this until we were half way there on the wrong side of the freeway unable to cross! This Expressway…

Mallala matsuri 2014

We get together with some friends and travel to South Australia for what is the 1st Ciscokids road trip. it was years ago when this trip happened, me having just bought out my first product and put social media together to get the word out. it was someone's idea i think Grinter's who said we should all head over for a weekend and i guess it was right place right time as i jumped on it and so did a small part of the Cressida community that i knew of. Every time i drive to S.A it seems like a good idea and a short drive, but i soon remember a couple hours into it just how long the trip is. First stop was the first Mcdonalds out of Melbourne, there was a decent amount of us making the trip over. Myself, Katrina my wife, Aaron, Evie, Grinter, Breen, Ruby…
