Walker Wilkerson’s new 2013 livery – Falken is out, Achilles is in [SNAPSHOT]

For 2013, Walker Wilkerson is starting a whole new chapter in more ways than one. After his S13 was stolen on Christmas Eve and recovered in a striped state, he built this twin-turbo LS7 S14 chassis with Fueled Performance in Arizona. ┬áToday, Walker revealed his new wrap for 2013 that is “more corporate” to Walker’s admittance, and has a huge change on the rear 1/4. Falken Tire has been a huge supporter of Walker over the past two seasons, but it appears that Wilkerson will be joining the growing ranks on Achilles tire. Is it sheer coincidence that Falken won championships in 2010 and 2011, while Achilles won in 2012, meaning that Walker will be on the grid at Long Beach sitting on the championship-winning tire from the year before? or does this reflect a larger changing of the guard as the most competitive tire isn’t the same that it was just a few years back?

    This beats all the other WW liveries. Look’s great.

    I don’t see how whether his parents paid for it or not is anyone elses business. Comments about his girlfriend are unnecessary as well, no need for crap like that. No need to get butt hurt!

  10. Casey says:

    Sounds like a lot of people are jealous ^

  11. Brad says:

    ^Seriously! And since when does liking Louis Vuitton make your girlfriend a slut? Sounds like you’re someone is broke to take care of his girl or she’s too ugly to flaunt LV. Walkers girl is super cool and supports him a lot. Just cause she’s hot people talk shit. Makes me laugh. So Many Jealous People are into Drifting! Wtf?!

  12. Chad says:

    So unimpressed with all liveries this year.

  13. jabroni says:

  14. s14s14s14 says:

    His parents don’t fund anything. I guess no one knows how to make a proposal anymore.

  15. s14s14s14 says:

    His parents don’t fund anything.

    I guess no one knows that you can make a proposal to get sponsors/free parts etc anymore.

  16. Kevin says:

    Creativity has gone out the window, LV all on the bumper? The fuck, someone sue him this is America isn’t it?

  17. TaBeast91 says:

    Car looks great. Can’t wait to see what walker brings to the table this year. Also glad he’ll be more approachable rather than sitting behind falkens pit ropes. Also, appears I have a secret admirer. Awwwww :]

  18. ECFU says:

    No way he didn’t make it to qualifying. What a joke.

  19. Mike peters says:

    It’s too bad he got rid of his s13 for this hot mess of a car. Looks like someone was drunk when they did the welding on the chassis.

    It’s too bad he got rid of his s13 for this hot mess of a car. Looks like someone was smoking something when they did the welding on the chassis.

    Why so many haters? Walker is cool and the car is probably done this way because of all the strings he had to pull to get it done in time…i think it looks good and his S13 isnt out of the picture Walker said it shall make its ressurection later on in the meantime this car will do just fine and has already found a place in his and Vannessa’s heart as another part of the family
