"If you're a GT-R otaku..."

Correct me if I'm wrong, as you know far more Japanese than I ever will, but doesn't otaku mean someone who never leaves their home? Does that phrase really make sense? Haha.

@nickmmele TECHNICALLY, according to FD rules, a "loss of drift" is when the driver straightens their wheel and is not transitioning. His wheel is turned the entire way through, so its not a loss necessarily a loss of drift.Also, reverse entries, to my knowledge, are legal in FD (perhaps only in qualifying? - the only time I really see them is in Atlanta by Essa), so the fact that the back end is further up than the front end at a certain point during the spin shouldn't be a problem. I would assume the judges would count it as spinning out, though, which is indeed a 0.


Like you said, I don't really think someone would be able to get away with this in a tandem competition, though. It would be too much of a hazard to other drivers. I do think it would be cool to see something like this in qualifying, though. Sure, the judges would still give them a 0 and ruin the fun, but the crowd would go crazy, that's for sure.

Everyone should watch Aono's documentary before commenting here. Honestly. That video really opened my eyes as to how broken drifting has become.

@lurklove Welp. First comment nailed it on the head. Discussion over. 

Haha. But seriously, i think you nailed it. I don't think age affects it being a classic in anyway. For instance, I already consider the ZN6 chassis a classic. It became the closest to a pure sports car in the modern day market that didn't destroy wallets. Tuning companies showed just what its capable of. And as we speak, the car keeps evolving. It's  definitely left its mark and, in my view, won't ever be forgotten. That's what makes it a classic.

Well, when you take an iconic Japaneses super car, paste different European designs from front to rear, make it AWD hybrid, which has no correlation to the origianl mid-engine, rear-wheel drive beauty, and slap on the Acura badge, rather than the loved and hated Honda badge, expect people to hate it.

I also prefer the stock look, but for some reason, RX-7's are the only cars that can pull off crazy conversions like this and not make me want to face palm hard enough to go through my face.

Well, as much as I don't like him, there's no arguing he is one of the pioneers of drifting in America. I remember as a kid watching the Falken Tire team and thinking it was so rad.

So, to my understanding, Need for Speed and EA completely dropped out of all things motorsport correct? Does that mean their old livery, the one Aasbo and Mad Mike use, is now the SpeedHunters livery? But isn't SpeedHunters from EA or is closely connected? Just a question that's had me puzzled for a while lol.
