While some may say that it’s the same cars out on the field, Chris Forsberg changed things up this past weekend at XDC Round 1 with the debut of his much-anticipated four door ride-along drift car. For those of those that aren’t familiar with the car, Chris got his hands on an Infiniti M45, with which he wasted no time stripping, strengthening, and caging the chassis. The car was fitted with a set of 4 Recaro seats to keep the passengers in place, Seibon Carbon fiber body panels to keep weight down, and a generous boost in power courtesy of the engine and transmission setup from his 2009 Championship season 350Z.
15 lucky XDC fans suited up in firesuits and helmets and made laps in the passenger seats of the four-door drift tank around Irwindale Speedway this past Saturday in what was no doubt an unforgettable experience. We were there to catch all of the action and feel the rumble of the first Infiniti M45 Drift Car from both behind the lens, and from the backseat.
