Ok, yeah, so this is extremely awesome.
Last week we saw The Bloodmasters’ John Wagner try (and fail) to drift his Nissan 240SX with what looks like a yoke stolen from an arcade. Some practice later, he got it right.
Things don’t go great, as it turns out.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the cars in Formula Drift are beyond belief. More than 2.5 million people got the message last weekend.
Nissan put the Japanese drift champion behind the wheel of a tuned, rear-wheel drive 2016 Nissan GT-R to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest drift ever recorded. The result: a 30-degree drift at insane 190 miles an hour.
Why is it the Russians always seem to have all the good, crazy ideas?
This is Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s new 2016 Ford Mustang RTR Formula Drift car. It has 900 horsepower, an independent rear end, and it likes to hit the three wheel motion.
Warm weather and tire smoke are here again.
When you’re a two-time drifting champion, this is the kind of prank your coworkers pull on you.
This is Ryan Tuerck’s Formula Drift Not-A-Scion-FR-S doing some testing up at The Ridge in rainy Washington State. It sounds like a large turbocharger that happens to have a straight six attached to it.
Ever wondered what would happen if a Nissan 370Z happened to have a 1,000 horsepower V8 under the hood?
Whatever problems Americans think young people have here with getting into cars, Japan has it worse. And yet they still have room for a budding grassroots scene, thanks to insanely low costs.
The last time I posted the lil red GTX had just fizzled out after getting clobbered on the rough stages of the 2015 Lake Superior Performance Rally. We had felt pretty good about the new turbo and the set up in general but then at the very end of stage 12, the car turned off, and that was that. We coasted through the…
Cindy McCain, the Stepford Wife-lookalike to John McCain, isn’t just a gearhead. She’s been drifting before you knew it existed.
If there’s any way to prove you have a sense of humor, it’s to name your drift crew from Latvia and Russia “Evil Empire.” And if there’s any way to prove you have a sense for the dramatic, it’s to shred right through the middle of St. Petersburg.
As I often like to complain about, Missouri is basically devoid of racetracks. I know this seems bizarre to our Californian friends, but there is only one quarter-mile drag strip in the entire state, and not a single road course. That is obviously why I’m not a world renowned racecar driver. Of course that’s the…
With 2,000 lb-ft of torque comes great responsibility. Would you use it for good, evil, or just turning fuel and tires into noise?
Winter has put pretty much all of the hot cars in the Northeast in hibernation, so let’s all gawk at some NorCal drift cars going nuts in their cold.
This is the dumbest new car video I’ve seen in a long time and I love it so much.
