Buying your own car
One of the most common questions we get asked. “Can i buy my own car and drive it in Japan and export it home at the end?” The short answer is Yes. You can. The long answer? Read below.
Finding a drift car on yahoo at a good price can seem quite easy. We are able to help you with the buying process, arrange for the car to be sent to our workshop, go under our inspection and if it passes, arrange for a light tune and registration if it doesnt have any, ready for you to turn key and go!
The down side however is the costs involved. Have a look below for current charges for buying a car
Agent/ Handling fee: 10% of car cost
Transport to the yard : From 25,000 JPY to 100,000 JPY depending where it is located
Inspection Fee : From 20,000JPY
Registration – From 100,000 JPY
Tune - 20,000 JPY – 120,000 JPY
Storage – 10,000 JPY per month
Unexpected repairs/maintenance - 5000 JPY – upwards
If you decide to buy a car and we have it registered, you will not be able to drive this car yourself to “explore”. The only driving will be done to and from the race track, and related to the tour under our supervision.
However, if you wish to use the car for your own personal use, with a current Alien Registration Card it is possible to transfer the car into your name. We are able to assist you with this.
Details on our charges for buying a car can be seen here.
Inspection Fee : From 20,000JPY
This is 100% not questionable. To ensure the trip runs smooth for everyone, the car will be inspected by us. If we find issues that we feel need addressing then they must be repaired or replaced. This will be done by us, with used or new parts. Your choice.
Possible examples of problems to find and expect to be repaired :
- Engine issues (eg: compression testing low/uneven, bearing damage etc)
- Slipping clutch or over the top clutch (eg : Twin plate on an Sr20 stock gearbox)
- Unsafe suspension components (eg: flogged pillow ball joints, tierods etc)
- Inadequate engine cooling (eg: No oil cooler, no temp meters, std intercooler/radiator)
Anything that we feel could cause a problem that results in you loosing track time, our trip home slower or more expensive for you , attract unwanted police attention or generally affecting the professionalism of the tour.
Registration – From 100,000 JPY
Cars can only be registered for long periods. There is a some refunding available at the end if we cancel it.
Tune – 20,000 JPY – 120,000 JPY Many cars have chipped ecu’s, air fuel controllers and power FCs installed. Before we allow you to take the car on tour we must check AIR/FUEL ratios and knocking levels to ensure this car wont blow up on the first corner. If the car is simple then a basic re-chip will probably just take place. If the car is a high tune setup with a poor tune then a full retune may be in order.
We are strict about these procedures due to our experiences from previous tours. Now-days many foreigners have been to Japan for drifting at circuits, but have not required such inspections, chancing ideal scenarios but more often than not resulting in major problems like engines damage after several laps, 4 gearbox’s in 2 days, over priced parts just to get them back on the track, and the list goes on. Our goal is to avoid such chaos with strong preparation. You will thank us at the end!
To Note: These reasons above and more is why we have put so much effort into the hire cars. Less money, less head ache = more track time and more fun!
BYO Drift cars
If you have a drift car already in Japan, that you wish to bring on a K Tour, then you are welcome!
However please understand there will be a strict inspection, much along the lines of the details above, and the vehicle must have or be able to get vehicle registration.
Please contact us with ample time regarding the possibilities!
If the car does not pass inspection, the items must be changed before the tour starts.
This will be at your expense, at our workshop.
It is your responsibility to ensure the car arrives with plenty of time before the tour starts for inspection. If you need help with land transport we of cause can help. But you must allow ample time.
The reason for this is we feel customers who hire the drift cars should not be inconvenienced by a customer’s vehicle that is not up to standard that encounters problems. We have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure all our hire cars are of the highest standard possible, to ensure the most track time possible.
So if you have any questions about hire cars please contact us
