In the last few years we’ve been lucky enough to pit-crew for top international drivers Ken Gushi, Jake Jones, Ryan Tuerck, Daigo Saito, Mad Mike Whiddett and Beau Yates. We have also been entrusted with Melbourne-based driver Michael Prosenik’s LS-powered Silvia for a D1NZ season, providing complete fly-in/fly-out competition prep for him and his team.
Over the 2020 D1NZ season we are supporting South Australia-based driver Jake "Drift-Squid" Jones, with Keg leading the pit-crew whilst Jake competes in the GT86. Check out Jake's youtube channel to stay up to date with the behind the scenes work we are undertaking together
We also provide our race-day services to our full-drift car build customers, like Hong Kong based driver Arthur Lee. Arthur’s S15 rolled in to our shop as a street legal Spec-R and evolved into a full noise, high-spec, “you can’t drift something this beautiful” track-ready machine, using only the best genuine parts available from around the world.
With Arthur's busy international schedule, we stepped in to organise everything from D1NZ entry, secure storage, alignments, repairs, upgrades, tyre orders, fitting, tuning, test days, vehicle transport & accommodation arrangements for events. When it comes to competiton day we also provide a spotter, tyre-changing, pit-crew and tools for repairs and maintenance during the event. Arthur competed for a season of D1NZ here in New Zealand, then we sent the car overseas to compete in D1 China, with Keg flying in to offer him the same support in China.
Unfortunately the S15 was in a heavy impact during a drift event and has now been shipped back to New Zealand for a re-build. During 2020 we will be finishing the new S15, going bigger and better than its predecessor (along with another epic drift project of his) that we can't wait to share with you.
Stay tuned to our facebook page for updates on Jake Jones' 2020 D1NZ campaign and Arthur's drift projects, and of course get in touch with us if you have a drift project or campaign you'd like to discuss.
Awesome team, had my E30 in for a 6 point roll cage, chassis reinforcements and custom mounted fuel cell. Turn around time is second to none and quality of work is absolutely brilliant. Cant recommend these guys enough!! Definitely will be back.Monish | E30 | July 2019
Total pro’s, I love their work.
My project is an unusual one but it didn’t come close to being an issue for DKM.Melvin | SW20 MR2 | Oct 2018
The team did an awesome job on my roll-cage. Welds are perfect, price was great, and the job was done super fast. If you want high quality, professional workmanship with great customer service, these are the guys to use.Steve | Honda Accord Euro | Nov 2018
