I would watch hours of stuff like this when I was younger. No fancy editing here or music to pump things up. This is just a good day at the track drifting.
This will be out next month on DVD/Bluray. This is the stuff that filled my dreams as a kid. I’ve loved Touring cars since the day I was old enough to control a Tamiya radio controlled car and pretend like I was on a real race course.
I love old Toyotas and Rotary engines. Throw the two together and you have this.
I’ve always pulled a lot of my styling ideas for my personal cars from other makes and styles. I don’t like to surf any one particular forum for ideas. I feel like the reason why you see a lot of similarly modded cars on the same forums is because that is all people ever look at. If they know A + B is the combo to set up their ride then why take a harder road? My personal style is function always following the looks of the vehicle. Now that doesn’t mean it will be the fastest around the track or have Rcomp tires on it 24/7, but I always set my rides up so that I can hop in them at anytime without worry. My newest project the E90 is a great example. I stretched the tires and have the wheels millimeters away from the fender lip, but at the same time the car rides excellent and doesn’t rub no matter what happens. To me a car is not complete if it only looks a certain way. Making it perform (whether that just be driving on the highway without issue) is just as important. I don’t mind a dedicated car (for performance or looks) either, but for myself I need my cars to be used on or off the track and parked or doing 80. I’ve always liked old school Toyota’s that are drift inspired. They typically look good and are meant to be used also. I feel like you get a bit of that influence by looking at my E30 drift/street car.
I really enjoyed this video. It gave me a better look at the performance that can be achieved with a completely tuned BRZ/FRS/GT86. That HKS version can really move!
I am tired of hearing all the whining on the internet. I’ve always felt a real car enthusiast respects all aspects of the car community. I’ve been wanting to write up an article of how I feel about it all. I came across this article on Speedhunters and thought it was pretty on point. There’s people on either side that are just annoying.
This is one of the brands I’ve been following for a little while now. They always come out with cool old school style BMW stuff. Check them out! http://elefantsupply.com/
You got to love some open top drifting.
One of the cooler videos I’ve seen in a long time.
