I thought I had a good understanding of how rusty cars are in Canada, then I saw this Nissan 240SX held together with little more than hopes and dreams.
Behold, the king of all donuts. Hands-free donuts.
The good blue Mercedes Sprinter drifting van was tripped and tipped by the bad, no-good cars that spun.
The internet at large remains obsessed with the big flick reverse entry style of drifting big in Japan with Naoki Nakamura, Team BURST and the little circuit Meihan. It always looks amazing how the cars bush up against the wall, flirting with destruction, looking like they’re about to crash. Here’s what you don’t…
The V12 is a pinnacle of engines, almost exclusively reserved for luxury cars and exotic sports cars. As such, its rare you find one built like a real hot rod, with lumpy cams and all. That’s why this Nissan Silvia drift car with a very custom Toyota 1GZ is so exciting. Well, that and how amazing it sounds.
They learned its style. They recreated it on a skidpad. They played it in driving sims. But NorCal’s Drift Team Animal Style had never physically gone to Meihan, the tiny track in Japan that gave the world the backwards entry and has become legendary in the Internet Era of drifting. This past year, they shipped their…
Super D Matsuri is the ultimate drift weekend. This year’s version attracted some of Japan’s and America’s best drifting talent to the California desert, complete with the incredible cars they brought with them. The photos of the cars in action were mind-blowing enough, but the videos were even better.
Far from the sights and sounds of LA and about 15 wrong turns down dirt roads, you’ll spot a sliver of a karting track paved into the California desert. It was here that drivers from around the world converged to demonstrate a style of driving rarely seen on American shores. Well, that and shotgun beers.
One of the most entertaining drivers in Japan over the past few years has been Kazuya Taguchi, an Up Garage employee (kind of like super Autozone) who also runs in Formula Drift. Now he’s come stateside in this 4.1-liter R35 Nissan GT-R, which makes more power than you’d ever need.
Since 2016, the Ford Mustangs running in Formula Drift have had one of the most wonderfully bizarre suspension setups I’ve seen. It’s back again for this season and I am still obsessed.
The twin-supercharged, 900 horsepower V12 Ferrari 599 has been the most anticipated car to come to Formula Drift in years and, well, things didn’t go great on its debut. On its first round in its debut competition, it burst into flames.
It is here: the 1050-horsepower drift Corvette. It is the power car. It is the car of great strength. It is ready to tear shit up.
This is a twin-supercharged V12 Ferrari 599 drift car. I’ll repeat: This is a Ferrari 599, twin supercharged, competing in Formula Drift in America this year.
I’m currently spending half my time trying to not spend a couple grand buying an early 1980s Toyota Corolla, and the other half checking every Craigslist region in the country for one. With this in mind, I should probably log off of YouTube.
One of my favorite things in drifting is when a car is set up to sort of drive itself. Watch this video to see what I mean.
Got a race coming up? You’ll definitely want to take a look at the track first. Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo just had the best recon lap ever for this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix: in the passenger seat of pro drifter Mad Mike Whiddett’s 1200-horsepower four-rotor turbo rotary-powered Mazda MX-5.
This Nissan S-Chassis driver down in Orlando was, perhaps, not having the best day already, needing a tow off track. Things got worse when the tow truck showed up.
