660cc Caffeinated Beverage.

The Ea11r/Ea21r has been around for a few years now, one of only a hand full of RWD Kei cars on the market, so it’s only natural that people try to slide these things combining the practically and Tax brakes of a Kei class car with the FR layout and turbo’ed 660cc F6A engine. Most of us should have seen the photo’s of this Cappuccino on Roadster Drift’s blog.

I flipped out after seeing this; liking it to my K11 Micra with its SSR MK3’s, camber and stretch I set about trying to hunt more photo’s of this amazing car down. Ive spend many hours scouring Minkara Carview looking for the members page for this car but alas to no avail.

I always thought these cars were pretty hot but lacked abit of character, well that’s not totally true… there are some great examples around but not just done in the style im fond of.

So thru my searching 2000 odd Minkara pages I narrowed down a few that tickled my fancy.

SSR MK1’s all round with a bit of Poke. The best thing about these cuppa’s or (kei’s in general) is the fact that they can make a 6j / 7j stager look amazing compaired to say… on an ae86.

This is a team of cappuccino nuter’s that slide there kei’s. With the amazingly short wheel base these have a very snappy nature but after viewing the video’s on the orange cappa’s page (below) they seam to be quite a hand full to slide but look like a barrel of fun at the same time.
Also notice the car top row, 2nd in from the right… oh yeah!

The angle might not look impressive but I can assure you throwing that in would take some skills.

Killing it with 80’s style 13” fitment win!
