After extracting a very impressive amount of track time from their previous drift car, a 2JZ S15, the staff at Driftworks are about to embark on a properly bonkers build for 2013.

I always bang on about the elements that make a good build thread, and having nice photos is usually top of the list. But another key element to a great thread is using it as a platform to tell a story, as a reader you want to get lost in the journey and feel like [...]

A cool build for a good cause, props to Sumospeed for looking out for their boy. Check http://www.sumospeed.com/?p=1192 for the build. Found on Stanceworks forums.
I was reading up on this thread a while ago, however I stupidly forgot to note it down and in-turn forgot about it until very recently when Christian submitted it via email and brought it back to my attention. This car interests me for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s different, which always makes for a [...]
