Dino, Alex, someone can point me where to find more information about the car? (facebook, blog, forum post...) i like kei-car racers a lot, and found it very intersting (also, if anyone has video...)

And when to start using a harness? I see barely unmodded cars running 4, sometimes 6 points (probably an overkill) as much as i see 400hp street cars with regular seats, so , at wich point should i "feel" or know that it is time to use a proper harness?

It think it would be intersting for everybody abroad (specially outside the US or the inner circle of editors) to know where our beloved writers, editors and such went after the dissolution of those magazines... Could you give us a heads up here or on facebook? A small article just like this one will be well worthy

@StudioPCK @mbretschneider Nothing more than you really deserve! Thanks for everything on your website and for sharing your knowledge! I took one of the biggest decisions of my career to start working with cars and you are one of the ones to "blame" for that!

Brian is a great inspiration. As a car builder (on my first BIG project) and a graduated Graphic Designer, he is more than inspiration, he is a role model!
I second the statement that you can never have too many RWD sportscars

still many people go outlaw, people are pushing i lt and i thing govmt is figuring that they can just create fees and taxes for modded cars like other countires... either say, people do it outlaw style all time, my own piece of resistance is something i will try to send to #featurethis in the near future, and , for us outlaws down here , SH and the stories of down there are all very inspiring

current laws in brazil doesn't allow you to modify a car besides changing its color, slightly changin the suspension height and alterations up or down 10% of the original power/displacement and thats it. anything outside these lines is illegal. Consider yourself blessed with all you can do legally in the Nz, AUS, JP, US and EUR
@prplbeast I think FD Japan would be aimed at local privateers/rookies , right?
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Formula Drift Heads to Japan
Ok , we know speedhunters has no relation to FD (besides friendship), but you guys in the business have enough contacts to answer my question/propose it to the organizes: What about livestreaming? will there be livestreaming?Livestreaming is the way for us outside the US, europe or Japan, to follow up the most amazing car events that are held on those places, i know overseas fans dont bring in the big bulk of money , but if overseas fans weren't somewhat important for the business, FD wouldn't go from the US to the JP, right?
I didn`t even finished reading the article and i already want a full feature on that RX3 for christmas, ok guys?I think others would agree it would compensate for the lack of a full feature on the last crazy rotary you showed us (the mini)

@kphillips9936 (somebody can correct me if i am wrong) I think when you stretch the tires you keep with the original contact path (a 205 tire at a 9 inch wheel may seem like a 245width but it only touches the ground on the original 205mm). That means that they do cover the wheel, but the sidewalls doesnt touch the ground, and, when you have lots of horsepower and a narrow contact path you have less traction as you press the accelerator.

I will throw some ideas at the table, u ready?1 - off road in japan2 - drifting events in eastern europe3 - hill climb events other than pikes peak (cmon folks, PRESCOTT, aren't there some brits at speedhunters?) 4 - hill climb in japan? (there's gotta be a scene...)
6 - TARGA TASMANIA
just for me, those are half a dozen things, the years has 365 days, i know you guys can do all of them, right?

@Mike Garrett @mbretschneider man, just tell me when "turbo and stripped interior" isn't the answer for an automotive question?LOL, just kidding, but hey, do it the way i told you so and i gotta get a ticket to the US to try it!

Carry as much as you can from the celica to the crown, it certainly has better geometry and everything else, take drivetrain, axles.... everything. Simple turbo and mild tuning and you have a good drift car AND (without backseat and a few minor mods and anchor points) you can also haul all the needed things on the back of the crown that you may use on the next projects
@walshatron Indeed it does, i noticed that too.Though, do you remember the 90s mitsubishi eclipse? it had a gigantic tunnel (ok there was an AWD option, as the juke has too) and was FWD.I dont believe nissan will screw up, plus US, Europe and Asia are big markets for RWD sportscars too.Though (and i live here) , if Brazil ever got the car you can bet all our money that it would be the crappiest engine configuration possible and FWD-only (even if the original is RWD/AWD, like with the Escort, back in the day)

It better be RWD.The juke engine isn't half bad (that turbo one) but, such a great design inspired by a RWD car simply CANT be FWD. I think everybody here knows that this transition is not exactly good for these kind of cars (corolla, anyone?)
