@ChristianSchmidt @shiftyXTI - Well, I've only asked Porsche race manager a question, not TAKATA or Aston Martin. Where is that answer?

Well, I do have a question - where all our questions from previous post had been answered?
We took our time and put them and we didn't see anything since.
If I were to bother again, I won't ask the KW why are the prices so high or why I can't buy lowering springs for my Soarer any more......I would ask what are they doing there beside business as usual?
They work on innovating something or we will have same spring of steel and that damper with oil or gas and smart valve to modify how low and how strong I want my setup?

Please forgive me for saying that.....but I don't like this movie.
Glad that speedhunters.com sticks with photo's only.
And why is all in slow motion? It looks half what I imagine that it will be.
For that matter, here EvL Santos making from a stance and life style event like Wörthersee 2014 a much greater movie.
And Wörthersee is no Gatebil.

The Audi, NSX and ALL GTR were really cool.
I love the Supra, I love the engine and suspension ( I own a Soarer) but.....in stock form it started to look really awkward to me. I'm sorry, but you cant make a Supra to work well with an audience in stock form after 20 years.

Such a huge difference between these grassroots drifting with your friends and Vaughn JR trying to kill Fredric Aasbo in FD. What I would prefer to watch? Really? I really do think that the fans of FD are different kind of fans that these grassroots events have. I guess that there are many more fans who wants big budget drivers trying to make a show at any cost than people into motorsport fun

I loved LaSupra and any boxy Volvo drifting. As always, Also, really cool seeing Magnus Walker in the pits. Maybe next year he brings an old Porsche for racing at Gatebil. And I hope Fredric beat the hell out of Vaughn JR in qualifying sessions.

Dino, I know we are talking cars here, but seeing this story I wonder if you didn't feel fear taking photo's of every car there, in the middle of the night? I mean, there aren't any Yakuza guys there? The Rolls looks that is from a mob crew anyway. And why the Police ask them to leave? It is illegal to park in a parking lot in Japan? And why nobody cared about their demands? It is so weird and cool at the same time.

Really cool car. I wonder how he managed to align the wheels to turn the car. Also, I guess with this wide track, the performance of the 964 is lower than the stock? If so, is this a stance car from RWB?

Also, if that doesn't work for you to win, you can always destroy you opponent car and kill the driver, in a correct by the books manner, of course.
You don't fool me, junior
@Dennis Toyota, please don't do that to the Supra. If you want something from BMW, it's the gearbox you want. Like in the past, with the V160/V161 being the same GETRAG with the 8th Series. Look, another link between Toyota and BMW from the '90s.

A new SVX would be a really great idea for Subaru and I would love to see other manufacturers reviving other legendary names of the past - BMW Series 8, VW Karman, Alfa Romeo Fulvia, Fiat X1/9, Opel Manta, etc.

First, I do not think for a moment that Ferrari will ever leave F1.
It's been there from the day one and that record is worth all the cups of the Le Mans put together.
Secondly, Ferrari in Le Mans in LMP1 class will be awesome, but not likely. They will not benefit from a wining car that looks like an UFO neither in the street cars or in the F1 cars.
So I think that they will remain at wining GTE-Pro Class and, hopefully F1 in the future.

So I saw a Corolla AE70 just like this on my parents street the other day. It's that really rare this car? That one was very beat up, looking really bad, rust, almost no paint (I guess it was red), but working, engine inside, all windows in good shape, interior was really damaged.
Do you think that is worth save it from death? I guess I can buy it for less than 400 euro.
The only thing that is keeps me for thinking about this project is the fact that I already have one project in garage.

@aussieANON ....and what is THE best engine ever made, in your opinion , and why.
@Ciaran @ GT_Europe And if you have a tank full with kerosene you think it is safer?????
I have two questions for Mr. Wolfgang Hatz - 1. What do you think that the future of Porsche will be, regarding engine developments? 2.What will be the next big technology development to be implement to road cars from race cars?
@Lachys114 Yeah, I agree. When I first saw the car I thought that was the same car....but they are very different and yet, the same idea. I don't think that you can easily find a third one just like them.

I have to agree that on this time, I'm not on your side Fredric. I do believe that FD-D1-KOE is racing because you race each other, not with the stopwatch. But that exposed to media drifting is only 1% from the entirely movement on the Planet Earth. Drifting is the only motorsport in the world where fans are enjoying it as an art and watch the exposed sport as a racing. I don't know anybody with a kart. Or with a rally car. Or with a drag car. Or with professional 4x4. Or with a time attack car. I do know about 30 or so with drift cars. And they are really using them for drifting, as an art, not as an competition.
So, professional drifting is moving apart from the mainstream drifting. But we enjoy it. We take advice from you. We choose our cars because how you choose yours. We modified them how you modified your. But we drive differently. I don't wanna win a tandem with a friend. I want my friend to have fun just like me. We don't care about that. And another difference - we care about how our cars look first. Then function. It's not about the winning it's about the feeling. You don't have that in FD.

That C210 Skyline had some really cool wheels! And the R32 on airbags it's such a cool looking car, almost VIP :)

Formula Drift is not bigger than Europeans Championships. In FD you have 4 or 5 very good drivers and the rest. In Europe, you have at least 20 very good drifters, if not 30. If good drifters from Europe move to FD is because you really need "a next step" after winning. And Japan or Australia is far in distance and also far in culture from Europe. So, the logical step is FD. But its not something that you want from young age. Or something to desire. You want something else, something new.
I do believe that drifting, as sport, is evolving different from each continent to another, despite being so close thru internet and social media. The cultural differences make or brake rules or define what is "cool".
It remains to be seen who will be the greatest championship. D1, FD or KOE or Drift All Stars?
