@NouriSalden @Afroneck @Big Pooky @greenroadster Flying pigs would be better than that. Just kidding. But what about Lightning? Or Eagle? Or FutureAmerica Edition? Whatever. Anything but Unplugged. Would you buy a Mercedes Dinosaurus Edition? Or BMW HeavySmoke? No. You wouldn't.

@Larry Chen Larry, because he is one of your driver's doesn't mean that we have to love it. Second, I don't care what he is promoting, he doesn't promoting right what you said it does. It is my opinion, I don't have to like him just because I read SPEEDHUNTERS.COM, does it? So spare me with "unlike" comments, I'm not the hatter here. He is a violent person, a rude personality (both proven with facts) and this site, or any site, can not force a reader to think otherwise.

Every time I hear Vaughn JR name, well, that's a mood killer. Why you had to spoil a good article with that? It's not even his property , just near him. So what? You do mention he's name quite too often. Not a great personality

Larry, Bryn, do you just did a story about a MK1 Golf being made a drift car and not showing any drift images???
So, I read the story but still never saw a Golf drifted. Strange. What happened dudes?

Great seeing Mark again, although he gain some pounds there... :)))
The video with him talking about the Hakosuka is still one of the true inspirations in my car life.
Not agreed about some of this pics, but....he IS THE MAN.

@kovyrshin @greenroadster Are you implying that an F1 has a soul? That's funny, an McLaren with a soul. If someday someone finds a McLaren with a soul, I bet it would be a boring one, having a smoke in an old chair, with a glass of scotch. Don't ask what a Ferrari soul I think would look like :)))

Do a VIP body, big wheels sitting low on coilovers , big spacers, flush wheel arces on BBS LM's, no wings, all white, single and central exhaust, GT3 style. Striped interior and no roll-cage. And a 3S-GTE swap. Good luck!

@SeanStott First, he did answer the wishbone question. Second, the difference between Ford Crown Victoria suspension and any European cars are huge. Also, the difference between any European cars and a Porsche or a Ferrari are also quite big. You pay the fine tuning and the know-how, not a revolutionary set-up.

@iamcollin Thank you for your reply and for all good words you have for me. And yes, I'm still thinking that it is an overkill for this car doing this. If you are better than me and your not close minded, please take a day off and try a go-cart (karting). If you do not see me point after that, I still value your opinion. Not like you.

@Teamfred Ok, ok, don't take it that personal. :))) It suposed to be a joke. Of course you don't wanna drift this brand new Porsche. But don't say "never ever". I hope is still joy in driving your car and you'll find it funny when you slide on a rainy day going a roundabout in the middle f the night. Don't tell me that this 911 is a beauty queen.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Project 991: Wheels, Tires, Brakes, Done!</br> For Now…
@leitev8 I don't agree. Pirelli are the best tires...for drifting. They tear apart quite evenly and they destroy all the rubber clean, with no wires sticking out to rub the wheel arch. After you clean them out of the rubber and you remain only with the steel wires, they are still safe to run until pit stop. In drifting, you don't wanna use Michelin or Hankook. They will destroy your wheel arches when they go "pop".
But for this 911.....yeah, they seem cheap. But then again, he lives in USA, maybe the rods are killing them easy.
Here's few thought's - While I understand Taryn for featuring this car here, and the cars looks great from the inside....well, I don't quite fully understand the driver/owner of this Camaro.
If I were to own such a car, I would drifted her all day. Or drag race her. Or use it for time attack. Or grip racing.
For what we see in these video, seems to me like an overkill. Taking a go-kart thru the same corners here would be such a great joy, more fun than the Camaro.
Question - is it a true life for a Camaro fully built to drive thru some cones on a airfield at a speed of no more than 80 mph?

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.

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.
