Are there any Initial D fans in here? Just wondering cuz that is my favorite anime of all times. They better be making a 5th stage or something cuz Im not happy with the ending in the 4th stage.

Initial D was exactly what I needed to see when everyone else was raving about Fast and Furious, it's a great story and the racing scenes aren't the monotonous ones you see in every other racing movie.

And there's nothing wrong with wanting a car that looks like Takumi's:badrazz:

If it wasn't for Initial D, I wouldn't have gotten into cars the way I am now. I wouldn't have bothered going to Club4ag to see what the car was like in the real world and why it is highly regarded by most Japanese professional drivers.


Likewise, it's natural to want something you like. One of members at Club4ag has a replica of the Tofu delivery car. I personally love to have an FC3S that looks like Ryosuke. Just because it's a cartoon doesn't mean you can't be inspired by the designs.

Initial D is a cartoon but it pays a lot of attention to detail in the racing scenes, other films that are based on cars/racing wouldn't bother going into those details. That's what makes Initial D so special.

perhaps its just the fact that i was into the cars long before initial d hit the streets of america. when i owned my corolla, i had no idea what initial d even was... and through my eyes, a corolla owner(used to be anyways) after the cartoon came out in the states, prices jumped, everykid who ever heard of the show was buying up the cars, and trying to drift them, leading to wrecking them, leading to it to be harder find them. thats why i drive my cressida now... noone knows what they are, and everyone thinks theyre ugly.
oh, ps. corollas were hated by most everyone, right up until the show came out... now its one of the hottest cars to steal

LOL, it is funny isn't it of how people actually fantasized about a certain product that was used in a movie / anime. Hence, wanting to have a similiar product try to make miracles out of it. It is ridiculous.

It's just a testament to how well the japanese can cause such a fad in the western world. It's no different to motorsport where manufacturers pour millions into their racing programmes just to boost the sales of their cars. And the AE86 is highly regarded in Japan, most professional racers over there must have some racing experience with them.
