[SAIKO^
D
]KamkoR



The founder and leader of Saiko D, first started playing LFS since early 2003, and joined his first team, the Akina Speedstars.  Along the way he met up with his best LFS buddies, Moregore, Kyousai, Tommy and the likes.  KamkoR and Moregore started drifting a lot together and both of them were one of the first that raised the bar of twin drifting to a whole new level in LFS.  On 2004, KamkoR met up with Stanley and the idea of forming a new team soon came to his mind, with pieces of ideas slowly coming together, and with the help offered by Bunta (a.k.a Nuvolari), the team was almost ready.  On 5th May 2004, KamkoR gathered all his friends, Moregore, Kyousai, Tommy, Wursti, KillerK and Stanley and they formed the team, Saiko D.

KamkoR is best known by his DFP drifting skills in 900 degrees rotation mode, even though he uses the full steering lock with the DFP, he has no problem at all drifting with ease.  KamkoR is a versatile driver, he always have his ways of keeping up with all types of driver’s alike, whether it’s an extremely fast drifter, or a slow, but utilizes high angle type of drifters, he is able to adapt to the various styles in short time.  With years of drifting in LFS, KamkoR is considered one of the most experienced drifters in the LFS drift scene.

KamkoR also founded the KMR production, which has produced many great LFS movies.  One of his best videos was the “Saiko D Demo Movie” which was released on 11th June 2004, the video was a big hit and it is the video that had trademarked Saiko D presence to the LFS world.  KMR’s other movies includes Saiko D R-evolution, Out of Control and many others.

[SAIKO^
D
]MoreGore


Ranked 2nd in the overall team rankings, Moregore was not only KamkoR’s best LFS drifting buddy, but he is also known as one of the most respected veterans in the LFS drifting scene, his ultimate drifting skills have not only amazed many but it has also brought inspirations to the beginners and the likes.  Before Saiko D was formed, Moregore was in team IDD (Initial D Drifters), when KamkoR decided to form Saiko D, Moregore was the very first to join him.

Moregore’s driving style is similar to KamkoRs, his ability to drift at the finest and to perfection is what makes him a truly unbelievable driver.  Moregore also has the best gears in LFS back then, where he would drive in LFS using DFP’s 900 degree rotation mode, Act Lab H gated shifter and Act Lab pedal set (with clutch).  Moregore’s was first recognized as a speed drifter, his style slowly changed after joining Saiko D, from there onwards, Moregore’s never fails to prevail in any challenges he faced.   

Moregore’s driving skills are not limited to drifting only, he was recruited by FAC (Fair Autoracing Club), which is a well known LFS racing team that has many fast drivers, Moregore soon find himself at home in his first race team.  During his time in FAC, not only has he become a better driver, but he also captured several world records.  To call Moregore Saiko D’s best driver is definitely not an overstatement.

Stanley is the co-leader of Saiko D.  Stanley first started drifting in a team called “Dream Team” on 2003, it wasn’t long before Stanley first met up with KamkoR in a demo server.  During that session, KamkoR’s drifting skills have amazed Stanley in a big way, the two of them had great fun drifting together and they soon became good friends in no time.  When Saiko D first started, Stanley was recruited in the team as well.  The team name, “Saiko D”, was also come up by Stanley himself.

Stanley’s drifting skills were mediocre at best when he first joined Saiko D.  Yet his humble but hardworking attitude had boosted him up to a respectable level in a very short time.  Stanley’s drifting style is best recognized by his consistency, he may not be the fastest, but he is capable of drifting laps by laps with the same consistent line, speed and angle.  Stanley has recently switched to a Logitech G25 and is slowly adapting himself to the new gear and controls.

Due to the fact that Stanley lives in Malaysia, he is also known as one of the laggiest members in the team; hence he got himself a infamous nickname called the Lag Wagon.  Many called Stanley “Stan” in game, but he also possesses few other cool nicks such as Stan the Man, and Stacy.  Stanley is Kyousai’s best shower buddy in the team as well.

[SAIKO^
D
]SAi
»


Sai was recruited to the team when Saiko D wasn’t doing too well in the scene, on December 2005, SAi joined Saiko D along side with Chris a.k.a Minishonk who is from UK.  The two of them were considered fairly young at that time, although they weren’t that much experienced, both of them had showed great potentials and their energetic and enthusiastic attitudes had brought the team back to life. 

SAi was the one guy that stand out the most amongst all of the Saiko D recruits, SAi is a Canadian Chinese (originally from Hong Kong), his determination in becoming the best of the best is unbreakable, from time to time he had showed incredible progression in his skills development, not only is he one the most recognizable drifter in Saiko D now, he is also the one drifter that truly defines the best and ultimate of Saiko D’s drifting: Fast, Precise, and Aggressive!

SAi was also known for his arrogance, but that doesn’t stop him from having the most fans in the LFS drift scene (both demo and S2) than any other Saiko D drivers.  SAi was also one of the first Saiko D members who helped obtained Saiko D their very first win in a drift competition.  Ever since that win, SAi’s performance in the team only gets better and better, and it doesn’t seems like he’s going to stop anytime soon.  SAi is best known by his over the top drifting style, he enters corner at speeds other don’t dare to, and he attacks the drift with angles that makes spectators jaw drop.  He is indeed, Saiko D’s “Show Stopper”!

[SAIKO^
D
]Kyousai



Known to be the sexiest and most irresistible member in the team, Kyousai, is also a veteran who came from the same team as KamkoR, the Akina Speedstars.  Both KamkoR and Kyousai have been teammates and good friends together since way back during the earlier days in 2003, therefore having Kyousai in the team was an obvious choice for KamkoR. 

Although Kyousai may look very cool at times, but deep inside he is very friendly and has good humour, he never gets angry, or panic, and he is very good at handling himself at all situations.  Kyousai is not an ordinary driver of course, he performs best when he’s in the groove, he can take up all kind of challenges, and after all, he does have a lot of experiences on track than many others, which is a common strength within Saiko D drivers.

Kyousai’s popularity rocketed sky high after his special appearance in one of KamkoR’s movie called “Saiko D R-evolution” where he had this “shower scene” which sort of involves Stanley, that’s how all the chemistry between him and Stanley began.  Kyousai also has several other nick names such as Kyo Kyo, and little princess.  His favourite car in LFS is the LX4, the only Saiko D driver that drifts the LX series.

Nationality: Holland
LFS Name: kyousai
Experience and Achievements:
To be filled
Other Info:
- Member of Komodo Race Club
- Former member of Akina Speedstars

[SAIKO^
D
]TommyPL



Known as the mechanic in Saiko D, if any of the members needed some tweaks in their setups, Tommy would be the guy they’d go to.  In the early days of Saiko D, Tommy has established several well balanced, and great performed setups for the team.  The setup proved its worth when Saiko D members achieved great results in some of their early competitions.

Tommy’s ability to fine tune great setups in LFS does not come without a reason, he also owns a Lada in real life which he slowly built on getting into both rally and drift.  The Lada is expected to be sprayed with the same theme as our cars in LFS. 

Tommy is also a persistent drifter on the track, he is also the very first that performed the crazy jumping drift along with KamkoR at BlackWood racetrack.  The move is available in one of KamkoR’s movies called “Saiko D R-evolution”.

Nationality: Poland
LFS Name: tommypl
Experience and Achievements:
- TeamD1: Conflict07 Round 4 1st in Qualification
- TeamD1: Conflict07 Round 4 1st Runner up(2nd place)
- TeamD1: Conflict07 Round 5 1st Runner up(2nd place)
Other Info:
- Create the very first drift setups for all Saiko D members





...
[SAIKO^
D
]Kaitea



The only Japanese in the team, an extremely humble and generous person, the most frequent English word that he always uses is “sorry”.  Kaitea was previously known as K.T., he has already been drifting with Stanley and Chris back in the early S1 days, and he was also the one that helped Stanley to come up with the team name “Saiko” which means ultimate or final.

Some time after S2 was released, K.T. changed his name to Kaitea, and he was pretty active in the racing scene driving for his Japan racing team called the “Rapid Stars”.  On one special occasion, Kaitea was invited by KamkoR and Stanley to join the Saiko D Drift Competition 2005.  When Kaitea was there, not many would know who he is except the few of us, but he sure surprised everyone with his almost invincibility on the drift battles, Kaitea won the competition with ease in the end, the outstanding performance impressed Stanley and KamkoR so much that they decided to recruit him into the team.  Soon after the Saiko D Drift Competition, Kaitea officially becomes a member of Saiko D.

Similar to many of the Saiko D drifters, Kaitea also developed his skills through speed drifting, with the transition from speed to style, he has proven that his driving skills are not to be underestimated.  A crazy Japanese indeed.

Nationality: Japan
LFS Name: G-Gallery
Experience and Achievements:
- Saiko D Drift Competition 2005 Champion(Kaitea was recruited to Saiko D after winning the event)
Other Info:
- Member of Rapid Stars

[SAIKO^
D
]Toni



Toni a.k.a Matrixi, joined on March 2006, Toni has proven himself as a potential candidate in Saiko D, with his smooth and slick driving style, whether its racing or drifting.  Toni started off in team DoriftoKids, and then moved to Top Secret, from then on his presence has caught some of Saiko D member's attention, especially KamkoR.  With a few great sessions together and the interests of wanting to be in the team, Toni soon got his wish fulfilled as he was tested by some of the existing Saiko D members, of course, Toni passes the test with flying colors and he is invited to be a part of the team.

Toni also has a good racing background in LFS, when he had chosen to left Saiko D few months back, he had joined up with a well known racing team called Velocity Max.  Just like any other Saiko D drivers, Toni's driving skills has developed along with racing and he soon got invited into another drift gang, which called themselves the ghost from summer, lead by KamkoR himself.  Toni's experience in the drifting scene does that stop there, soon after he released an amazing movie featuring some outstanding video effects called "breaking boundaries", he is yet again, recruited to Team Orange, a well established drift team which uses only orange skins and are masters at creating heavy smokes.

Same with SAi and Stanley, Toni also uses the Logitech G25, a matured driver on the track that is not to be underestimated.

LFS Name: Matrixi

- Several WRs racing for team VMax
- LFS-T Drift Competition round 3 1st Runner Up(2nd place)

[SAIKO^
D
]Keitaro



As the last recruited member of Saiko D, Kei is not a stranger in the LFS drift scene.  Kei is best known by his former team, The DoriftoKids which was formed at 2004.  With Kei's leadership, DoriftoKids drifted their way up to the very top along with many of his great teammates, we do believe that Kei and DoriftoKids is currently the only team that holds the record of having the most members. 

Although Kei and his former team was doing really well for the past 2 years, he has recently come to a point where he is literally paralyzed by the things he has been doing all these while.  With all those accumulated frustrations and desperations, Kei finally decided that it is time for him to release the long time burdance of his.  On the other hand, he was also looking for an alternative, Kei may have loads of pressure while leading dK, but he also struggles a lot in his own driving.  After coming through some of the existing Saiko D members, Kei discovered that he may have a new hope in pushing himself to new limits in Saiko D.  All Saiko D members accepted Kei, and with the announcement of team DoriftoKids closing down, Kei officially becomes a member of Saiko D.

Kei is an interesting character, he may not be known as the best out there, but he has proven to many that he has worked hard and he doesn't plan on stopping any moment.  Saiko D sees this and all the existing members will be helping Kei in his progress to reach new and higher goals.
