Greetings Initial D World! More videos and images of the meet are being shared across social platforms. Please check the post below this for the full coverage of the event.

We are in need of your help. While going through all the media of the meet being shared on Instagram, we discovered that our name (Initial D World) is being misused. The account in question is using our name to sell T-shirts and stealing our images. (Because all our images has "Initial D World" on it, they are posting them as if it's theirs.)

What infuriate us the most is not the fact they steal a couple pictures, rather how they misrepresent us by misleading people about the quality of our content. It took years to build the community. It involves many countless nights of running and supporting the forums; doing translation works so the fans and followers can get to watch Initial D episodes as soon as possible; many hours of planning for future gathering and events. To see all these being misrepresnted is a direct insult to our core beliefs and mission.

We have taken all the necessary actions in the proper channel to take this imposter page down. Apparently it is not easy to do so at Instagram. We've also contacted the T-shirt company that these imposters are using. We don't see any other means but to ask for your help.

On Instagram, please do not associate the @initialdworld page with us. Our Official Instagram page is http://instagram.com/go2id If you want to tag us, please use @go2id. We'd love to take that name back in all honesty, but it's a challenge to prove to Instagram that these guys are imposters.

So if you have an Instagram account, please help us by following us on Instagram today: http://instagram.com/go2id

Thank you very much.

+Falbere! I find it even funnier that more recent Lamborghinis don't have "Lambo doors" because of all the ricers.

On January 24th 2016, we hosted our 3rd annual meet ( http://facebook.com/1629012720680152 ) in Lafayette Reservoir, CA. The attendance of the event was absolutely wild. In all of our past events, we always create a Facebook event page for it. The number of people said they will go never reflected the true attendance every time. In fact, we had a simple formula to gauge the approximate attending rate. Number of people say they are going divided by three for persons and divided by four for the cars.

Our little equation was completely broken on Sunday morning. The night before the big meet, we passed the 1,000 going mark on the event page. We thought, OK we are going to have about 350 people and 250 cars. When I get to the reservoir at 6:50am, there were already 15 cars and at least two dozen people. And the flow of traffic never stopped until we had to close the entrance gate on people. Majority of attendees showed up before 8am. By 9:05am, we reached full capacity. All 450 parking spots were filled and we estimated 800 people were present.

Some people, unfortunately had to turn away at the entrance. However, some did find parking near the reservoir and made the hike up the trail and joined the rest of us. We applaud for such passion these people have for Initial D. We sincerely apologize to those that got turn away. It never crossed our mind that our gathering would get this big. We wholeheartedly appreciate everyone for driving all the distance and on their best behaviors that day. Thank you everyone!!

We have compiled all the coverages of that day into one post for your convenience. Be sure to check out all the video footage and photos below!

The season is upon us. We hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. Warmest Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year to all from Initial D World.

| Editor's Note |
First of all, sorry for the long 2015 hiatus. I hope to catch up on all the news after the holidays. Many things were going on for me personally this year and keeping the fanpage updated was not realistic considering the time and efforts that need to go in. However, 2016 looks to be a less busy year for me and I will make it my new year resolution to get this page back to the top again. smile emoticon Hope you all still remember this page. Happy Holidays to you all and Merry Christmas!

When it comes to lifelike scaled car models, AUTOart has no competition. That's why their 1:18 scale Project D version AE86 has been such a hot item. (We made a post about it back in late 2013 - http://goo.gl/9yGAEu) So it was a no-brainer for AUTOart to release a "Legend 1" version of the AE86 model when the first part of the trilogy hit the theater last year.

Reddit user Chimuel has taken upon himself to take some very nice photos of this incredibly detailed and accurate scaled model of AE86. But being a hardcore Initial D fans, buying one is just not enough. He bought both the Project D version and the Legend 1 version. And what better way to display them both than to buying one of those 1:18 car lift? I have to say, it looks so beautiful.

Chimuel was kind enough to share with us where he got that car lift from. So if you are thinking of recreating this set up, be sure to check the links below. The current price for the Legend 1 version is $153.50 and $148.81 for the Project D. version on Amazon.

For those of you who are as poor as I am, hey at least we get nice pictures of AE86 to look at. If you already bought them, take some pictures and show them here in the comments below!

I am sure we all remember how Takumi beats Nakazato with his superhuman footwork and fearless move over the curb in First Stage episode 10. One has to wonder, is it really possible..?

One Initial D fan sets out to find out. He went to the exact corner where AE86 overtakes the R32 and actually took some measurements. According to him, the gutter is a lot wider than he thought. From the edge of the pavement to the actual curb is a 80 cm (32 inches) of 15° decline. The actual curb is 30 cm (12 inches) in height. He questioned whether or not such shallow dip can generate the centripetal force needed for Takumi's 86 to corner at such speed.

In reality, cornering at speed over 100km/h (62mph) at such tight hairpin is probably suicide. The saving grace is, this is going downhill. So the center of gravity is towards the front of the car, meaning the two front tires will have slightly higher traction than the two rear tires. Also, since 86 is relatively light compare to other cars, the inertia is easy on the 86's body. The tendency of the 86 flying out of the gutter due to centrifugal force is minimized.

But I digress. Takumi didn't beat Nakazato the same way he did Keisuke. No, Takumi actually drove over the curb, to basically get inside R32's blind spot. As we know, AE86 has a 20cm ride height clearance. In the manga and anime, they never show how exactly the 86 got over the curb. If you ever drive over a curb before, you know it isn't exactly easy on the car. Now imagine driving over a curb at speed in excess of 100km/h.

So this is where we draw the line between reality and fantasy. Bottom line, it is possible given the right suspension settings and skill level of the driver, but highly unlikely for just about everyone.

I am sure Bunta can pull that same move with no hands on the wheel. (laugh)

Your dream has come true. They are bringing Blu-ray to Initial D Fifth Stage and Final Stage. They are calling this the "Initial D Premium Blu-ray BOX Pit3" which is slated for release on 2015/03/20. You can pre-order it now in the links below. But first, what's in it?

Good question, us fans have the right to know what is contained in this box that they are selling for 31,968 yen ($264.53) From the description, this box contains five Blu-ray discs and one music CD.

» Disc 1~3 is Initial D Fifth Stage (All 14 episodes)
» Disc 4 is Final Stage (All 4 episodes)
» Disc 5 is a digest version of First, Second, Third and Fourth Stage. (Think of it like battle stage clips in High Definition)

And finally, the music CD contains non-stop Eurobeat music used in Fifth and Final Stage. Also there are deluxe booklets on Initial D material; a very nice luxury-looking storage box for the discs.

But all these for over $260?! Isn't it a bit expensive? You are right. That's why avex is also throwing in a special 1/24 scale Fujiwara Tofu Shop version AE86 model with this Premium box.

This AE86 model is different than the 1/18 version from AUTOart (http://goo.gl/TUjsM9) This one is smaller but it's just as detailed as the 1/18 version. This one also seem to have the roll cage (!) which was installed in Fifth Stage. So think of this exclusive version as the most up-to-date scale model of the Initial D Fujiwara AE86.

Anyways, this is not for everyone due to the price tag. If you do decide to take the plunge and get this, take some nice pictures for those of us who can't afford it. (that includes me..)

As you are probably aware, the second movie in the Initial D Legend series will be coming out on 5.23. This time, the plot will focus on the NightKids arc from First Stage. We are excited to see the R32 vs AE86 re-animated in true HD format. There are a couple things we are pretty certain of (But not confirmed):

1.) There will be no Eurobeat BGM in Legend 2 (unfortunately)
2.) The movie is only 65 minutes long, similar to Legend 1.

The movie title for Legend 2 is 《闘走》"Dokusou", which literally translate to "Battle Run", but the actual meaning is simply "Racer". If you recall, this story plot was all about Takumi discovering the pride of a street racer. Takumi, at the time, still stuck with the mindset that one needs a reason to race. For him, driving was merely work and daily routine. As he explore the idea that driving can be fun and exciting, we see our protagonist slowly develop to become a true street racer.

Re-watching Final Stage recently I felt like this song (Nuage - Crazy Little Love) deserves to be shared on the page. It has that right Initial D Eurobeat feel to it. Something about the rhythm just reminds me of Initial D without any context.

Which one is your favorite song from Initial D Final Stage?

ACT.1
» David Dima - Dancing On The Street

ACT.2
» Dave Rodgers feat. Futura - Magic Sunday
» J.Stark - The Jungle Is On Fire

ACT.3
» Igoda - Flash Light
» m.o.v.e - Strike On
» Dave Rodgers - 1 Fire

ACT.4
» Nuage - Crazy Little Love
» Joe Banana - Wild Boy Bad Love
» Ace - Adrenaline

You can download all of the songs here: http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=46883&view=findpost&p=1296895 :)
