As much as I hate to admit it, being somewhat of a purist...

The S13 is beautifully suited to an LS.

I do want that dash quite badly though

@Coyote_ar @Budd19 There was a lot of stuff that was different between M3 and DTM, and to replicate all that would cost a hell of a lot. Now a DTM car isn't exactly cheap to start with, but still.

There's a classic motorsport thing happening in August there as well. I think Shannons is sponsoring it so it should be good.

I have to say, my love of cars was definitely inherited from dad. 

My older brother doesn't seem to have quite the same passion, but then he's more concerned with useless things like an education. 

I can only hope that if I have kids they can be gifted with the same love of things that go broom.

@Speedhunters_Bryn @aussieANON You really notice the difference in tech between FD and E30 though. Most E30s were single cam n/a pistons engines, and then you've got this (comparatively) wizard tier spinning triangles twin sequential turbo thing.

Pretty crazy

It's surprising how the E30 was being sold at the same time as the FD. You wouldn't really think so.

Disregarding that you can't seem to type a proper sentence, are you saying that I shouldn't be able to offer my opinion because I'm not the one doing the work? That's retarded. 

Am I therefore not allowed to comment about a video game, because I'm not the one doing the development?

That's ridiculous.


Liberty Walk is essentially just rice for really expensive cars. Wide tyres yes, but when stock is already massive and super grippy it won't make much of a difference.

@Funky Child Honestly, I'm totally with you. Sure the flared look might look alright on some cars, but to me a stock bodied Aventador is way more appealing. A set of wheels, go for it. 

Not only that, but they (Lamborghini) test these cars in wind tunnels for ridiculous amounts of time at ridiculous speeds... And he goes right ahead, slaps on some flares and a massive wing and calls it a day.

Oh yeah, it's obviously a shitload of fun, I mean everyone can see that. But sometimes the competition gets in the way of the fun. 

I used to play rugby for my highschool when I was there, in the 3rd grade team. We basically rocked up on a Saturday and ran round the park with the lads having a great time. There was no pressure so we could just enjoy ourselves. The guys in the 1st grade constantly had people telling them that they had to do better, that if they didn't perform they'd be dropped etc and from the few games that I played in there, it just didn't feel as enjoyable.

It would obviously be an awesome feeling to be winning events and stuff, I'm not saying that. But the guys who are out doing skids in a beat up S13 around their local track don't have the pressure that comes with international competition and that to me is a very attractive proposition.


With that said, though, I do really want to give competing a go.

I personally think it's more of a show and style kind of event.

But who cares if you're having fun?

To be honest, I reckon that the absolute grassroots guys have more fun than Formula D. Sure they (the actual grassroots competitors) don't have 1000+hp cars that accelerate while going sideways, but I find it very hard to believe that you're having more fun than me and my mates hanging around a roundabout.

And that's what drifting should be, fun. Not rule bound or anything. A good show, with some awesome cars and a laugh with your mates.

I feel you on the driver's car statement.

I recently bought an E30 318is and it's the most fun ever to push through corners. Nailing a heel and toe and hearing the engine brap up to 5k for the revmatch is absolutely amazing, and a feeling that something with a paddle shift can't match. 

They might be faster, but I'll take the one with the proper clutch any day.
