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.
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.
You got to love some open top drifting.
While I await more parts and you await more Grippy’s Garage check out this video. I was blown away at this guy’s skill level.
It’s good to see the Risky/Junkhouse guys doing their thing better than ever. They have to get as much fun in Chicago before the weather goes south.
I came across this while youtube digging. I’ve seen this car before but never on track. I dig the customized vert with the low profile cage giving added protection and chassis strength. It’s always cool to me to see a show quality car on the track.
I’ve been messing around with my project E30 lately, and I’m always looking for inspiration. I was looking at 318is videos and came across this.
A video I put together of Rob’s almost complete 2002.
