@andrewtaylor60 @johnbezt if the lower blue triangle is the pivot point, then as the wheel moved up (hitting a bump), the strut and spring will be pulled, not compressedsprings work under compression.

how in the F does that front suspension work? I'm zooming in to the photos and don't see any cantilevers. looks like just a fixed mount inboard and then the other mount on the control arm. which would lead to a total loss of mechanical advantage. splain it plz

i see people saying that the flaw of this system is that it doesn't take in to account style (or fluidity). but, can't the system be tweeked? can't there be a deduction for velocity fluctuation and pitch changes (those being attributes you see in a run that would normally be judged poorly)?seems like a cool idea overall, but probably needs someone who knows drifting and programming to modify the judging algorithm or just have judges.drifting has always been a judged sport like ice skating.

wow that is a toyota body style I haven't seen much of before, very cool indeed. That trunk line and C-pillar are gorgeous.

cool to see prototyping on such a large (and cheap) scale. think about how long and costly it would be for someone to fabricate the body design in a finished form.this is something where they could do a redesign in a matter of days, rather than weeks. neat idea, albeit still crude.

one thing this article missed was the paddock. you can spend hours walking through rows of your favorite cars and get up close and take photos and talk to the owners and mechanics and drivers. I've gone almost every year since 2002 and it's always full of great automobiles. hell, most of my IG is just pics from this and the concours de elegance =)

also, why didn't you show the wheel lips??? there were polished, then beadblasted, then anodized! two different textures on the wheel lips! its a great detail

I saw this in august at laguna seca and it is absolutely beautiful. Rob (the dude from singer) was really nice and completely not a egotistical about his build. I wish more builders would strive for this level of clarity of vision, as I think it really helps push others to build better cars themselves.also, @Larry Chen and @speedhunters_mike when were you out here for this story? I know all those photo spots

definitely lots of cool touches and I really like the general theme. love the color. not a big fan of body kits in general, so i'm sorta bias against this one.
I just can not believe that this car gets driven. seems completely impossible to drive on any road with even the slightest irregular surface.and the louvers, I always thought the old-school rodders have a louver-pressing machine that punches the shape into an existing panel, one louver at a time. I didn't know you could just buy a big louvered piece of metal and tack it on. I think doing some actual welding and grinding would make the hood 1000 times better looking.cool build nonetheless! thumbs up!

BTW, any car movie list needs to include: Claude Lelouch's Rendevous "C'etait un Rendezvous", which is just 10 minutes of illegal driving through paris in 1976, with a camera mounted to the front of a ferrari, and probably is on of the most influential vehicle films ever made.
what about: The road warrior (more vehicular carnage than mad max)cannonball run 1 and 2jackie chan's police forcetokyo drift death proofthe transporterand you gotta specify that you're talking about the original italian job not the remake, and the jean luc godard "taxi" not the one with queen latifa.movies are serious time!

@Charizard because this is a comments forum. we discuss and share our views, opinions, and reasoning. when we disagree, we argue/debate as best we can. some people are better at it than others.
1 year, 6 months ago on NAKAI GOES TURBO: THE RWB ROTANA
@ComJive i understand that aspect that you're describing, BUT that requires the premise that that front end should be half an inch above the ground. Nakia's early cars without the clunky rubber didn't require the look to be scraping the ground. using the need to look low as a justification for running thick rubber chunks is just circular reasoning. I'm not at any point saying the car needs to be "VAG low". again, using the hazards as a reason to validate the excessive rubber is not a valid argument, because it implies the acceptance that the car needs to scrape the ground, and therefore you'll need to avoid hazards.
Dat Escort!!! glad to know there's a feature coming =)

@Lastspark a lot of his car don't use the bolt on style.http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/attachments/911-turbo-930-forum/567679d1316538223-rauh-welt-aka-rwb-1164317680837781200526169.jpgi think maybe he uses the bolt on style, instead of actually doing the sheet metal work, to allow for the flares to be mass produced and allow for changes and replacement in the event they are damaged.
@ComJive here's a couple that don't have huge chunks of rubber tacked on to the front splitters. http://image.automotive.com/f/featuredvehicles/eurp_1011_rauh_welt_begriff_porsches/30781870%2Bsoriginal/eurp_1011_03_o%2Brauh_welt_begriff_porsches%2B964_caerra_2s.jpgand this one as well http://jasonsgrainofsalt.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/moblog_865ea40c.jpgand I'm not sure what the 'hard parking' comment is even in regards to. does having a 4in piece of rubber on the air dam instead of a 2in piece of rubber on the air dam somehow make the car more usable or are you just trying to create a false premise so it looks like your point is valid?
I normally enjoy his builds, but this one feels the most 'fake' than the others. somehow the body kit below the door, and the 5 inch front air damn seem like a 'cheater' way of making the car look really low. those things have to be sitting 3 inches lower than the frame rails.tinted headlights?. tinted windows on a 'track car'?. door jams not color matched. comeon, it's details that make his cars amazing and subsequently, LACK of details detract from it.I know RWB has set the bar really high for himself, but this seems somehow LESS RWB.
another great article!

@Brad_S yes they are, which makes me wonder why they put them on this car? even just a little bit of lip like a classic fuchs would have been better than these ugly things =( shoulda been like this if they wanted to invoke a retro aesthetic http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/attachments/993-forum/682108d1353595155-ever-wonder-what-rsr-finish-18-fuchs-might-look-like-on-a-993-porsche-tequipment-911-02.jpg
