  4. Kids Heart says:

    When Orido and Taniguchi are like WTF are the judges thinking, there is a problem.

  5. zz says:

    The omt call between Fujio and Iizuka was really weird., or as Orido would say, “amusing”. A solid chase run with re-initiation versus no chase at all I really don’t understand the judging criteria.

    Seemed like the MSC crew either didn’t pay enough attention or wasn’t briefed on FD’s judging style since it had to be explained during qualifying.

    By the way, i was surprised the middle man Tom didn’t speak much english (and didn’t know the difference between a silvia and a soarer) – kind of surprised there wasn’t a translator. Thank goodness Ryan was there for commentary that was rational, had it been only Jarod mcing I would have muted the stream.

  6. Kids Heart says:

    How FD clipping zone philosophy ruined Japanese drifting.

  7. zz says:

    @Kids Heart
    What do you mean? the clipping zones are similar to how msc ran Fuji in 2012

  8. Kids Heart says:

    i didnt see any cones designating clipping zones in that msc video. What i saw was drivers allowed to run their own lines and much closer action than we got to see with FD nannies messing up the scores.
