Driftworks 2013 ASCAR/AE86

18

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. Their plan is to take the chassis from an ASCAR (British NASCAR equivalent) and drape the body of an AE86 around it. Sounds […]

The tale of two Silvias

2silvias

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 […]

BMW E46 V8 Drift build

E46drift

I saw a video of this beastly creation a couple of weeks ago and the first thing that struck me about it was the appearance of the car without it’s rear bodywork. I love how the builder has almost created the car in a ute/pickup fashion, making the bodywork rear of the b-pillar detachable for […]

SR20 RWD Toyota Platz

PLATZ

I’ll admit, when I first saw an online image of this car in a Drift Tengoku magazine spread, I automatically assumed it was one of those weird front wheel drive ass-dragging drifters from Japan. But that was far from the case, you see this is little Toyota Platz (Echo/Yaris sedan) is actually powered by a […]

Do you follow Nigel’s blog, Engineered to Slide? Well you should, he’s the crazy DIY fabricator behind two awesome S13 Nissan builds, one of which was part of the starting line-up of posts I made when this blog debuted. He’s just started a new project which I think you’ll be interested in, a hollowed-out Toyota […]

RTR-X Mustang Speedhunters

If you’re a regular Speedhunters reader, then you would have already seen this monster being built over the last couple of months. For those of you who aren’t, here’s the lowdown… Ford, Monster Energy Drink, and Team Need For Speed teamed up with Formula D driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. to build a street/drift styled ’69 […]

Las Vegas S13 Drift build

HERO

Lester emailed this one across to me not too long ago. A fresh 2010 build of an S13 240SX for drifting duties. A great build with quality documentation from front to back. . . .

DSC_1992-1

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.

XDRFT2 – XD Falcon Drifter

HERO

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 […]
