Turbo for life
I spent about a month in Kerala a few years back, it's such a great place, seeing these images just brought it all back to me. The driving is so chaotic that it kinda works because everyone just does their own thing, the traffic just finds it's own natural frequency so things just seem to work somehow...
I'll be expecting a spotlight feature on one of those rickshaws in the near future ;)

@James_Turbo They look like XXR 527s to me (I'm not 100% sure though)... Personally I would only run them on a street car, people question the quality of the wheels as they're pretty cheap

That guy has serious balls to more than quadruple the original power and keep the brakes standard

I got a lift in a MOG 3 wheeler in the summer, I can assure you you'll never be so scared while driving at 30mph...

@TyPetersen I dunno man the ZN6/ZC6 is still un-attainable for a lot of people, anyone can pick up a S-Chassis for a few grand but I doubt many people here could go and pick up a GT86 fresh out the showroom. That what I always liked about S-Chassis at shows like this, it's sorta relatable

Anyone else notice a sharp drop in the amount of S-Chassis at shows like this? Or maybe it's just a decrease in the amount of coverage they get
Lexus seem to be the only mainstream manufacturer being properly bold in their designs at the moment. Plenty of companies make funky looking concepts but never pull through with it. Thats what I like about Lexus, they have big balls and make really interesting looking cars like this. Even though it's not particularly 'pretty', it's sure to snap your neck when it drives past you.

I guess this is closer to his older style, a bit more subtle like the RB S13 and S14...

Nice article, I live in Malvern so it's weird to go on Speedhunters and read about a car that's about 15 minutes away from my house.. The RA28 should be pretty tight as well

Eastern Europe has some fucking brutal drivers and cars, it'd be cool to see some of those next year. It'd also be cool to see some Drift Muscle rounds covered, and possibly a Drift Allstars event?
My final request will be near impossible, but I know you guys like a challenge... I'd love to see a feature on a legit R34 Z-tune

If you get the opportunity to drive a F-Type, drive the V6 S, it's a better car and it sounds even better than the V8 I promise!

D1 is just getting a bit stale, I know what you mean. When you look at a drift series like BDC with stupid cars like V8 Volvos, 2JZ BMW wagons and V10 S15s etc it just makes D1 look a bit serious and po-faced. Exactly what drifting is not meant to be, right?

Talking of crazy rotory engines, while cruising the internet I found a 12-rotor engine that some guy made for a race boat. It's 3 quad-rotors in a V configuration, pretty crazy huh? He's saying if he were to turbocharge it at 50psi and put it on race fuel it would put out 5400bhp, but I dunno where he's getting those numbers from. There's some more info here, and a few videos of it running on Youtube http://www.12rotor.com/#

Fuck, this photography is insane! I know literally nothing about photography and don't usually even notice stuff like this, but the lighting and angles and the way you've captured the lines of the car are magical! Real good work Larry

In my opinion, drifting needs to be revived on the streets. I have far more respect for someone who puts their licence on the line and risks everything to earn notoriety. I'm sure I'll get a load of replies telling me that street drifting is irresponsible and dangerous, which in honesty it is, but you have to admit when you saw those VHS videos of guys in Japan ripping up touges and city streets it would make your hair stand on edge. It's that spark that drifting is missing nowadays, it's too sober and sterile, too conformative. It's lacking that rebellious streak that made us all fall in love with it in the first place....

I would rather spend 4 million on a load of skid cars and a personal track for me and the homies..

@Omnigear I had the idea of "Driftlympics" a few weeks ago. Each nation offers their best drivers to compete in a variety of drift based challenges. There could be tandems, solo runs, a backwards entry comp, a fastest entry comp, team tandems etc... It would be awesome

Just wondering, why did you wait for pretty much a year to drop this article?
