  3. lifer says:

    I bet Tanner is driving the camera SUV

  4. YOitzJDM says:

    Can’t wait for J-rod to promote Scion more than he promotes any other FD sponsor (outside of Exedy) since he’s making money on the side with them…. ugh

  5. DUBteez says:

    haha yes bout time someone called j-rod out. guy has more “unofficial” sponsors than most of the privateer drivers. guy uses a nos microphone for fucks sake

  6. jDUB says:

    So I guess j-rod should just live off being an announcer? C’mon fellas! He has a wife and kid..If sponsors wanna approach him to promote their product you think he should say “No dudes…I’m keepin real fellas..” Pssst right! If these companies he promotes have the balls to get into the drifting market so what! If it was up to you guys he would be working nights at Mcdonalds to support his family in the name of “Keepin it real”

  7. DUBteez says:

    oh i aint hating on him for getting money and doing his thing. i just think its funny how much promotion he does for companies.

  10. lifer says:

    I’ll take the one on the right

  11. hollywood says:

    jrod is also the voice of almost every major drift event in the US and they guy has been appart of the SPORT since day one not to mention a kick ass dude. if you dont like him you should keep it to your self. he has done more for the sport than any of you have so in the name of the sport why not keep that irrelivent shit to your self.

    commercial is raw man love it, cant wait to see it on tv and watch my kids freak out lol !!

  12. YOitzJDM says:

    I’m not against J-rod promoting companies… i’m against him giving more publicity to his personal sponsors than the ones who pay FD money to get shout outs.

  13. Kids Heart says:

    I’m against J-Rod being a lazy announcer. I mean for $&@& sakes improve already.
