This car is the epitome of badass Americana. That front end is a work of art. Amazing feature, can't wait to see more of the Gasser.

@I hoon @Hanma You said they were non functional opposed to tubs which is not true. But you're right, I hate shitting on the comments section like this. Have a good day.

@I hoon @Hanma The primary purpose of fender flares is running wider tires and a wider stance which do increase performance which is exactly why Datsun put them on the ZG cars as well as why pretty much every production based racecar in existence has either flares or a widebody of some kind. I don't know what you have against flares, did they kick your puppy or something?
@I hoon With a standard set of ZG flares and a set of wheels that extend maybe 2 inches at the most, none of that is going to be an issue. You're talking extreme amounts of scrub and kpa. At this point you're just making up issues for the sake of making up issues.
@I hoon @Hanma Except zero scrub isn't always a desirable setup. It's common to run 1 or 2 inches of scrub to increase steering feel, but it's also easy to reduce scrub by increasing kpa or vice versa. It's all about balance in relation to the rest of the suspension setup(camber, caster, toe, etc).

@StuartBurns I don't believe the L series(sohc) includes the S20(dohc). Could be wrong though.
@I hoon Flares and other widebody configurations allow wider tires without sacrificing track width. The ZG nose is more or less a factory piece.
@StuartBurns 432 had an S20.
@Ant86 I'm still waiting for other companies to start offering complete kits for the car, not just lips and bolt on overfenders.

That livery (and by extension this car) looks like something you'd see in D1. I like it.

Drifting is the same as any other sport, it has to have a frontier that's continuously pushing the boundaries. Just like how school yard basketball is something we can all relate to and yada yada, the NBA exists to push the boundaries with the worlds best players, best equipment, etc. FD is a competition, not a playground and these guys are out there to win. Having fun is just a side effect because they happen to enjoy what they do as well as the competition. Unless Formula D is somehow inhibiting your ability to enjoy drifting, then you really have no right to complain about it. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Grass roots drifting is still there for you to enjoy without having to hate on it for becoming a pro sport.
That Celica in the first picture is gorgeous.

@MikeYee @aussieANON I honestly thought that was the highlight of the show that year.

Was BURST banned from this event after last years shenanigans?
The whole car looks off to me. Hopefully the actual concept will look better than the renderings.

The Coyote is my vote. Light weight with all modern tech, growing aftermarket, very high potential for power on stock internals, and still has the reliability of a standard American V8. All while being relatively inexpensive. Truly a step forward.

@guReMcO I appreciate all marques and I actually quite like the Viper, I just don't like all the credit it's getting for its looks. And to throw out a specific example of SRT mentioning Ferrari, just look up any video where they talk about their interior because they pride themselves in having the leather or whatever from the same place as them. The fact that they keep mentioning "European styling" shows that the Viper isn't a natural progression but rather a car that has gotten all it's inspiration from overseas. All SRT talks about is how refined and "European" their car is now. And what European car has a profile and details that are almost identical to the Viper? hmmm.......
As far as the Vette, I'll just leave this here for you.
It's pretty clear where both companies drew very heavily from for design cues, and you have to be blind not to see it. Claim ignorance all you want though. Just don't be so ignorant that you think this new Ferrari stole it's looks like the Vette, because it is in fact the other way around.

@guReMcO Wow, almost blatant ignorance lol. Even SRT has said that they wanted the Viper to have a more refined European styling to it, which was pretty much their way of saying they liked the Ferrari enough to copy it. Half of their interviews are of them bragging about how Ferrari like their car is.
And that bit that sticks out is derivative of Ferrari's F1 cars and the Enzo. Every piece of this car is a natural progression from the previous models, whereas SRT and Chevy made quite a bit of an unnatural jump from their original designs to appear more modern.
