@TimothyCathey I know, right? looks like the 20B is assisting the turbo and not the other way around.

I love it how the 1st picture makes it look like it has no rear tire and then you scroll to the 2nd picture and, oh my.
Then I watched the video and my mind was like "holy crap! is that a car or a missile?"
Life imitating art that imitated life, or is it the other way around? Hehehe. This is beyond cool.

@ClaytonPayton simply because in the N2 AE86 races, the drivers only use either WOT or not-WOT (i.e: 100% or 0% throttle) so carbs are easier/simpler. Plus those Keihin FCRs are using flat slides as opposed to butterfly valves which means better flow (or higher velocity).

I've always loved the crystal clear shot of Rod, and then we have Sean with his artistic play with light. I'm glad i found this site back in 2008 and with the new speedhunters onboard, I'm sure I'll be following speedhunters.com for many more years.
Great pictures, great feature.

@ClevelandN I'm not a drifter or a dirt track racer. this is just my opinion based from what I understands so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
I think the logic of downforce/traction does apply to drifting equally as it does to dirt oval racing, which is to increase traction. While in sprint racing the traction loss is due to the slippery surface, in drifting they are deliberately losing the traction or should i say balancing the state of maximum traction vs traction loss. So the increase of downforce will increase the available traction, which allows them to execute and maintain their drift at a higher speed.
Again, drifting isn't about minimizing traction, but rather about being in a controlled state of traction loss. Otherwise they wouldn't fit the stickiest tire or the widest tire allowed by the regulations.
And no, drifting doesn't require any less traction than road racing. It's just that they are set-up differently.
Thank you and sorry if I sounded like a fanboy/smartass.

@ClevelandN Maybe because it really does work?
On some of the picture there's a name I recognize on the windshield. Brian Green is a regular in the Malaysian Rally Championship. In fact, he is the champion for the 2012 season.

@sean klingelhoefer @Phishy I'd say it's jealousy mostly. Hell, even I'm jealous of him and I am a rallyist myself.

and Sean, please keep up the good work of putting rallying into the spotlight. this can only do good to the sports.

glad that you mentioned the importance of the crews. to us rallyist, our crews are truly the unsung heros over any given rally weekend, that's why we always try to give credit to them whenever we can.

@sean klingelhoefer The front wing of an F1 car was designed like that because of the regs. The FIA mandates that the centre of the wing (not sure of the exact dimension) remains aero neutral.
