Traditionaly, racecar drivers were always running two different races every time they got behind the wheel. The first being the race against the clock, or the other competitors on track. However the lesser considered is the race to keep their machine in working order and cross the finish line in one piece, and this has never been more aparent than with modern drift cars. While most drifters were driving glorified street cars only a couple of years ago, these days it is not uncommon to see four figure dyno numbers. So not only are drifters competing with the added stresses of turning left to go right and pushing a vehicle designed to drive in a straight line sideways at speed, but they now have to battle with keeping 1000 HP motors running reliably while doing so.
In GT Channel's latest web series we hear from Falken Tire drivers Dai Yoshiahara about his all new Subaru BRZ drift car, Darren McNamara describes driving the best 240SX of his career and last but not least we catch up with "JTP" Justin Pawlak to find out how his own personal Ford Mustang project is shaping up.
