American Touge; Touge Showdown in USA
Hot Version goes West for the first time as Tsuchiya and Orido travel to California.
As you know the Touge Showdown is one of the popular segments in our DVDs and we are proud to been the one to export the word "touge" from Japan. With drifting gaining more and more recognition, the touge is being recognized as the place where it all started. That being said, Keiichi Tsuchiya and Manabu Orido were both notorious touge racers before entering the world of professional motor sports. But they never forgot their roots were at the touge.
In this special American Touge Showdown we gathered cars from America's top J-car tuners willing to step up to the challenge. Will the US tuners endure heavy bagging? Or will they gain respect from the outspoken critics of the two experts from Japan? In the end they race the touge tail to nose to see which tuner will walk away with the first American Touge champion.
