NeverSlo 98 Nissan 240SX LS2 Formula Drift Car with Enclosed Trailer [BUY THIS]

Nissan240sx.NeverSlo

The best drifting car deal we have seen in 2016. A turn key Formula Drift Nissan for $40,000 that includes a 20 foot enclosed trailer. Basically, if you buy this package the only other things you need are a license and a drivers suit. You would have a hard time building this car for that cost and that doesn’t even account for the trailer. I expect this package to be gone by the end of the week so sell the last of your crumbling GoPro stock or liquidate your parents 401k so you can become a future drift star. Check below for all the spares and build for the package.

2015 Mustang RTR is Here Before the SEMA Show

2015MustangRTR.Front MustangRTR.FrontWheel

Vaughn Gittin Jr. just unveiled his 2015 Ford Mustang RTR to the world this morning just ahead of the 2014 SEMA Show. The new OEM package will be available at Ford dealerships so you can score a numerical serialized Mustang. The wheels and tons of parts have a slight variation for the new body style which has also hit dealerships in three packages; Ecoboost 4 Cylinder Turbo, V6, and a traditional 5.0 V8 engine. Here is what Vaughn had to say about the build;

“The all new platform has very easily allowed us to mesh RTR’s tastefully-aggressive styling and modified performance to offer our most capable, best-handling fun-to-drive RTR’s to date. If the slightly modified performance of the our Spec 1 is not enough, customers that demand more are sure to get their kicks with the up to 725 horsepower and optional fully-adjustable suspension that allows the driver to easily adjust the balance of the chassis to their liking.”

A Look at the Drift Cars Doing Battle inside LS Fest

SteveTopping

Holley’s LS Fest is a celebration of the amazing GM LS engine platform. During the weekend, you can experience road racing, drag racing, hard parking, autocross, and drifting at Beech Bend Raceway in Kentucky. The one thing you must have to participate is a Chevrolet V8. One of my favorite cars of the weekend was this four door BMW owned by Steve Topping. Inside his BMW engine bay he crammed a 5.3L iron block with a frankenstein of various LS parts and a Paxton Novi 2000 blower. His team was tuning the car during Friday night practice and then drove the thing to a second place finish.

PontiacGTO.2014LSFest

Only one drift car found at Beech Bend over the weekend actually came factory installed with a GM LS engine. It was Shane Whalley in this Pontiac GTO that ripped all weekend. Shane actually builds his own custom suspension parts for the Pontiac GTO to help guys worldwide drift these cars. You can find his own custom knuckles and other parts if you really want to go down the path of  drifting a Pontiac.

A Look into Warfest 2014 at Adams Motorsports Park

micahdiazjoshnovakwarfest2014
The California drift scene has had a gross lack of some grassroots action lately. Sure, there’s been events that are “just for fun” and non-competitive, but the camaraderie simply isn’t present. More times than not, us Cali drifters gawk at the photos we see of drift events in other parts of the country and world. We daydream about the high-fiving, door-bashing, crowd-cheering event that’s essentially a giant family reunion. Well, it finally happened at the 2014 Warfest at Adams Motorsports Park (AMP) over this past weekend.
