I picked one, two, three pieces of rubber from my eye as Chris Forsberg threw his car into neutral after a tandem run at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey. His 350-horsepower Nissan was so sideways, it felt like the wheels were castors plucked from an office chair. I was riding shotgun, attempting to film it all.
Step One: get a tree. Step Two: hook the tree up to a Nissan GT-R. Step Three: engage launch control and, wait, this isn’t so simple.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised they made it out unscathed—these are two of the best drivers in the world.
Tug of war in the automotive realm is usually done with bend-prone lifted trucks. Formula Drift professional nutbars Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg tried the game out with their drift cars.
What’s the best way to test two of the best pro drifters in the world? With completely ridiculous challenges, including car-to-car paintball.
If you own a new sports car — let’s say you have a Nissan 370Z — how much power would you make from a twin turbo kit, and how hard would it be?
Last year they built a quick beginner’s drift car for around $5000. Now they’re bringing a thrashed old Nissan 240SX back to decent shape and installing a twin turbo setup on a factory-fresh 370Z, too!
There aren't that many places where you can hold a car sideways flat out through third, fourth, and fifth gears. Hell, there aren't many drivers who can manage it for that matter.
This is about as close as you can get to a pinball machine built for cars.
From building rotary Mazdas in a barn to winning the Formula Drift championship and wheeling a thousand-horsepower V8 Nissan 370Z, this is Chris Forsberg. Ask him anything!
Let's say that you have a big house, a couple garage bays, some space out back, and a big driveway. Could you build and service a full fleet of cars? That's what Formula D driver Ryan Tuerck did.
I love precision driving car ads, and this new one from BMW, drifting an M4 around a bunch of M-cars parked by very brave owners, doesn't disappoint.
Getting tasered is incredibly painful. Trust me, I know from personal experience. It hurts worse than anything, worse than even stepping on a Lego brick in the dark. That's real pain. So Hoonigan decided to find out what happens when you tase drifter Chris Forsberg while he's driving. Ouch.
I didn't grow up a fan of stock car racing but seeing these old American racecars brought back to working condition fills me with desire.
If you think NASCAR is all about hillbillies hammering cars together in dirty garages, prepare to have your mind blown.
Chris Forsberg's Nissan 370Z with a nitrous-shot pickup truck V8 is one of the coolest tuner cars in the country. Here's the shop that built it.
Chris Forsberg might look like just another tatted-up Pennsylvania punk, and his car might look like just another beater 240SX. But he's one of the best drifters in the world, and his car is a beast. Here he is throwing it sideways at 102 MPH.
I've always liked the Datsun 240/260/280Z, but what's so good that it can't be fixed with an added Skyline RB25DET motor swap?
