Frequently Asked Questions
How is this different than something like a drive day?
Great question! This is far from a ride along with a pro for a few laps, or a weekend course where you get drive time on a wetpan course with an instructor. We are going to the birth place of drift! to provide an authentic and unique drift learning experience!
This is a hands on experience where we not only get you in the car with a drift professional but we start with installing a prep-process to get your mind right each day, similar to the process that the drivers use themselves, we work with you directly over 5 FULL days out at the track and cover the following...
Drift specifics you will learn
- Clutch kick entries
- Hand brake entries
- Holding a drift and throttling
- Hitting switchbacks
- Battling against other cars
- Weight transfer and more advanced technique
I am sure you see this is quite different than anything else out there, you don't want to pass this up!
What would it cost for me to do this on my own?
Yes 100% you could, here is a look at the hard costs of going out to Japan, buying a drift car, hiring a drift pro, getting around and figuring it all out.
-Round Trip Flight - $1500 (trip from US)
-Room & Board (7 nights) - $800USD
-Food (8 days) - $400USD
-Purchase Drift Car - $5,000USD
-Hire Pro Drift Car Driver - $5,000USD (they would expect you to pay their way on everything)
-Car Support - $500USD (doesn't guarantee a mechanic or speedy support)
-Japanese Guide To Get Around - $200USD
-Daily Track Rate- $150USD
- Hire car fees- $760USD (Could also take bullet train up to about 30 mins from track and still needing a hire car after spending all day on trains)
Total: $14,310 or so..
* We didn't equate cost of time invested in lining all this up as that true cost will be different for everyone.
*Round trip from AUS and other parts of the world will be different costs.
*The price we put in for purchase of a drift car would actually vary greatly from $5000-$7000USD. You can still find a beater for cheaper but it will probably also not run right or consistently so more time would be spent off track fixing it.
*Understand that you would have to purchase a drift car and then do something with it when you leave, selling would be the most common option but you get way less because everyone knows you NEED to sell. You would have to pay to store it if you kept the car.
How come there is no testimonials?
The first DJE is happening Nov 9-16th 2016 which we will have videographer and 9 attendees joining us, after that you can expect video footage from past events and captured moments we can all share. For now we have the community we are building on the fanpage and all their epic reactions to this unique event.
How did you figure pricing on this?
Another great question, we struggled to price this in all honesty, DJE is new even though we have run events in the past so we wanted to price it in a way that promote confidence and get people coming.
The price we foresee will be more in the future, the first one we are still building the brand and awareness so pricing will be 25% off for early registration which is all the more reason for you to checkout and grab your spot if you're on the fence.
This event was created to be a unique Tokyo drift experience for a smaller group to get more track time and direct one-on-one time with our team to ensure we are giving you the best we got!
What Happens After I Purchase?
After you purchase, you will be redirected to a page that outlines the next action steps. We will reach out to you via email with this same information as well. First we will jump on a call and grab all your intake info so we can book your flights and start getting you fully booked up!
