Initial D Movie Carnival, One Utama

I was at the Initial D Movie Carnival yesterday night. The event was held in the open air car park outside the new wing of the shopping complex. There's not much to say... the crowd was huge and I usually found myself far from the action so I didn't stay for the whole event. Besides I haven't had dinner so I left early to cure my stomach ails :)

Most of the people there were clamoring to get a glimpse of the stars of the Initial D live action movie. I snapped this picture using 3x zoom.

Kenny Bee, Shawn Yue, Anthony Wong (woot!), Edison Chen and Jay Chou in an unfortunate shirt.

Proton's R3 division ( R3 stands for Race, Rally, Research ) organised the drifting event. They also brought along some Proton cars to display. Oddly enough while R3 did participate in the drift challenge they did not do so with any Proton cars. Why is that?

The Lotus Elise... techically it's not a Proton.

The Savvy R3. Coolness.

Race spec Gen 2 (not the rumoured R3 production car).

Race spec Waja (again not an R3 production car).

An R3 chick (this is exactly what the MC for the night called them). She's cute... yes the Savvy is cute too :D

The infamous AE86 driven by Tengku Djan... son of Tengku Mahaleel and head of Proton's R3 division.

It's not too obvious but the sticker at the side of the car says "Race Rally Research".

3 wise words from our readers:

a golden opinion from Anonymous nalie

why didn't r3 drift with their own protons?

reason because, drifting are meant to be driven with rear-wheel-drive vehicles.

all protons are front wheel driven. except the juara. want to see a juara make fun of tengku djan? don't think daddy would be impressed.

u can'd drift with front wheel. u can ass-drag it using the hand brake but not drifting. period.

didn't go to the carnival but went to see the movie earlier today.

it's crap. utter crap. it's NOT initial D.

visit my site to see my reasoning.

nice site.

cheers :)

cool... thanks for the drifting explanation... I forgot to mention that the MC that day was also saying things like "Savvy pun boleh buat" during the drift challenge.
