Nagoya, Japan - The season of automotive events in Japan started last week and Wekfest was a must for all street and stance enthusiasts. With over 300 cars, most of them being street cars, visitors had lots to see in the gigantic dome shaped hall of the Nagoya Port Messe.

A quick talk with one of the owners revealed that he completely understood that camber would simply make the car slow and very bad in terms of grip and handling, but he claimed that as a real Japanese, his goal was to drift the car with this amount of camber to make the impossible possible… Well, it demonstrates yet again that it is not about the numbers and results but just how one enjoys his car.
