@MilesHayler @Hanma @afroguy Which is one of the current problems with F1. The greatest periods of F1(or any style of racing for that matter) were times when teams were the least restricted. That's when we saw truly exciting cars, and exciting races. F1's current regulations are keeping teams from innovating or doing anything remotely exciting. If you're that concerned with making less variation, you should just stick them all in stock Toyota Camry's(which honestly wouldn't change much compared to how it is now IMO).

@afroguy I think 2000+hp turbo V12's would bring a breath of fresh air to an otherwise stagnant sport...

@JustinOdijk FD is becoming the big leagues. There are smaller amateur and pro am series that privateers can play in, and potentially use as a stepping stone to get to FD.

This is by far my favorite car that you guys have featured in the last 2 or 3 years. Talking about the import game in the 90's, this car perfectly embodies that theme. It's exactly what I imagine a car from that time period would look like if built with modern parts.

Really not a fan of the new Mustangs. I didn't like the retro style Mustangs before this either, but they were still better than this. The new one just looks like a 2 door Fusion. The interior still sucks as well. They also managed to make this car heavier than the previous one.


Shelby is definitely taking a step in the right direction though. Flat plane v8 and IRS(not that I had any problems with the live axle in the previous gens) will be awesome.

@DoBeriault @Paizuri_4g63 Not for very long on a stock drive train... Also Evo's and STI's are in a totally different category than the ecoboost Mustangs. One costs 25k in today's money, the other cost 30-40k when it was new 10 years ago.Show me any import that's made today that can keep up with that for that kind of money. If you want to start comparing the Evo and STI to a car in it's category, then you're comparing it to the Cobras. 


Also I'm sorry, but the average fox bodies and SN95's you'd see at the strip were not slow. There's a reason why import drivers had to start their own categories back in the import drag days. The only imports that could keep up were hopped up AWD DSM's and Supras.


I like imports and domestics both, but I'm not about to make a bunch of ignorant "hurr durr 90's 'Merican cars are slow, JDM fo lyfe" comments. Educate yourself.

@xrockonx Believe it or not, they also somehow weigh about 100 pounds more than the 2014 models. I like the path SVT is taking with what they got, but Ford is butchering the Mustang. Looks like an economy sedan, weighs more,no significant increase in power, etc.

@2xthefun @MikeYeeI don't remember their cars ever being ratty. They were always all about style and trying to capture that JDM look and culture in their cars. Pictures of Josh's s13(when it was brown) used to be posted on every Nissan forum you could find being used as examples of what their dream cars would look like. They were never super hard core drifters or anything. They've always just been street rodders that enjoy their cars and also happen to drift for fun.

@ITRbroham Except those "fads"(you really like quotes) make up a huge part of the import car culture. The truth is that it'd be really strange to do all the stories on drifting and car shows, and NOT have this stuff included. I'm not really into the stance movement personally, but that doesn't mean that I think sites like Speedhunters should just completely ignore a major segment of the scene and cater only to the track bros and car snobs. 

So really the solution is very simple. If you don't like it, you don't have to read it.

I'm loving the "horsepower wars." It's showing the advancement of the sport. Personally, I think there should never be a cap on horsepower and I'm also not a fan of the power/weight tire rules they made a few years ago. This is the highest level of drift competition, so let them run their cars at the highest possible level. If the teams want restrictions and a cheaper playing field, let them go back down to pro am. Professional racing isn't cheap, and FD is finally leaving the grass roots scene and becoming a legitimate motorsport.

@Gianluca FairladyZ There's more than one way to skin a cat. Different teams had different approaches to setting up their cars. The Honda in this article is a good example of an almost opposite approach when compared to the S15. Both cars were very fast.

That rear end, roof line, and side profile are gorgeous. The front may take some getting used to, but I can see the direction they were trying to go. Maybe a more subtle version on a production model will look better. Either way, very excited for this car.

@_Lightning_This isn't some short wheel base Honda or 240 where you could get away with that. This is a 1 ton dually. They're long, and having it that low would make it literally impossible to drive without bags. It'd be bottoming out and teeter tottering over the slightest incline.

@RodChongI phrased my comment wrong. It was massively over-hyped and turned out to be a flop that left a huge negative comment thread in its wake.

I think you got it exactly right saying that it was a new take on the S13, one of the most unanimously well known and loved cars by readers of this site. It was also the first VR swap(or at least first internet famous) in the car, they made some pretty outrageous claims about it which seemed like they would've been legit considering they had Trust on board, and to top it off it was done by BenSopra and TRA Kyoto during the peak of their popularity. Of course it was going to generate traffic. It had everything going for it. That's why the end result was such a disappointment. 

Why you guys decided to pick the car of the year based on page views is beyond me. Especially when the car with the most traffic turned out to be the biggest let down of 2013. I know that it's not necessarily a huge deal that a website picked a car that I, as well as many others, don't like. It just sort of irks me knowing that there were some really great cars this year(that you guys did an excellent job of covering. I don't want to sound unappreciative or anything.) that really should've had a better shot than this for the title of car of the year. Personally I wouldn't have been able to choose a single best feature of the year as there's too many awesome cars to choose from, but this car sure as hell wouldn't have even been in the running.

@FunctionFirstIt only got those views because it was called out by pretty much everyone as an over-hyped flop. It just generated a massive negative discussion. So if that's what it takes to get car of the year, then it might as well be called the most controversial car of the year award.

What was the reasoning behind putting in a more expensive, more complicated, bigger engine that makes less power than a Ford crate engine? Especially considering that this is a track car and not a show car. And the over elaborate intercooler setup for 5 psi? I admit the engineering in this is top notch work that must've required a lot of skill and time, but for what gains? Uniqueness by itself doesn't count for much on the track.
