    Default "Rape Vans" (Dajiban) are the HOT SHIZ in Japan

    Saw this on another board. People have been asking what this is in the "2010 trends" thread, so I thought I'd make an appearance thread about it. I suppose it's like any other wacky JDM style (i.e. shakotan, yanky, vanning-zoku, Dekotora, etc), but I think this one is tits.
    I first stumbled across this back in July on the Japanese RS Watanabe website in the "owner car" section.
    It's been referred to as "Youga Base" style, "Hentai Vans", and a few other things, but apparently they just refer to their cars as "Dajjibans", or Dodge Vans. The Katakana to search for is "ƒ_ƒbƒWƒoƒ“".
    If anyone finds any new blogs, sites, or images related to the Dajjiban thing, post them in here. I want moar.

    The Basics:
    -Dodge Vans (I've yet to see anything else, but maybe they don't get other American vans over there)
    -Lowering
    -Deep dish low-offset wheels (often 6-lug RS Wats, but I've seen Diamonds and others)
    -White lettered tires
    -minimalist interiors (CF, racing wheels, not typical van stuff, lots of period American stickers, very eclectic)
    -V8 performance mods
    They appear to be actually tracking these vans, which is absurd, but ****ing rad.
    Here's the "Youga Base" blog site:

    Some of the images I've found (I've saved tons):







    Trackday at Ebisu Circuit. Obviously didn't work out so well for everyone, lol.





    Is this normal engine placement? Really this far back? I guess the hoods are so short..


    Interiors





    Suspension shots: (I wonder if it's the same "swift" that makes bike shocks)


    The ubiquitous Youga Base tag:




    I want this shirt so bad:

    Again, people are probably going to hate this to death, but I thought it was something new. So JDM it's USDM, lol.
    More pics:


    Funny perv references/Engrish:


    Olive drab makes it look like a transport vehicle from "08th MS Team" or something.


    I have to look and see if the USDM vans have these same tails. Looks different for some reason.

    Very funny, didn't see any of this when I was over there. The reason you only see Dodges, is because Dajiban is Dodge Van (dajiban-dajivan-dodgivan-dodge van)

    And that is normal engine placement front-back, but it might be raised a couple inches for ground clearance.

    How did they lower this? The shackles aren't flipped and the leaf spring looks intact.
