I wanna see a flock of kes going at it with similar setups to see who the real great drivers are. Wouldn't that be spectacular?

    Thats my 2 cents anyhow.
    very true.... dirft needs it to surive... more strict but also cost effective rules like a car can only have no more then 200hp or watever ..

    grip and drift has always been around and goes hand in hand..rally drivers use both to archive a fast time .. and so did alot of racing history race car drivers, when their was a lack of suspension/ tyre technology and design.... it was up to the driver to figure out how he/she could make the car go faster around a track. youtube some old racing footage and you will see them sliding their cars around corners and shit.

    it only now that different medias are making it more seen to the public- nothing looks better or as dramatic then a car coming into a corner way too hot, with is ass side ways and smoke pouring out of the tyres. easier to make a car look like that then depict real speed on the carmera lense... like above posts ..car games - need for speed... cartoon- inital d and moives - do i have to say it, toyko drift have all had alittle share into letting the world know about drift... .

    i just wanna drive fast and have fun at the same time .. . if that means learning to drift and grip so be it ...

    i built my cars for everything, and everything it shall do, whther its competitive or not is largely irrelevent,

    drifting does have alot of grass roots

    only thing that would fix da would be a no mod of the firewall rule. Knock at least 9 people out of the series off the top of my head. Its ghey anyways, waiting for someone with more than a hand on his dick approach.

    if you take a drift car to our local hill climbs they would laugh at you because its not awd. they would laugh at you even more if you said it wasnt turbo
    check out brother betty in the uk... fair call he has done a lot of work but is basically the car u described and has been fastest car on the day at some climbs last year... against some serious gtir's... im trying to find the videos, but here is a link to his build....

    I prefer grip, and I'm better at grip. But I don't really choose one or the other. Both usually come out when I'm driving.
