Chris Forsberg Vs. Matt Powers OMT in Top 4

One of my favorite battles from the whole weekend was the Chris Forsberg vs. Matt Powers battle in the Top 4. After the first round I knew the judges would call a OMT after watching the runs and after the OMT battle I really thought another OMT was coming. Well we got our hands on some footage that shows the whole track and want the Wrecked Magazine readers to be the judge. You have three voting choices which are Chris Forsberg, Matt Powers, or another OMT. Place your votes!

Matt Powers Refreshes His Vinyl in 2011 for the S14 [SNAPSHOTS]

Team Need for Speed star Matt Powers gave his car a little refresh for the 2011 season adding more leopard print with a spice of pink and baby blue flair. Some pink wheels on the drivers side of the car now and a huge juicy LS7 engine making horsepower for this Team Need for Speed driver. Matt is still on Nitto Tire for the new season and I personally think his Fantasy Drift stock should be going up in 2011 so keep an eye out for him and the Mattley Crew.

Matt Powers Shows off his GMPP LS7 Build to the World

Matt Powers is now a Need for Speed SHIFT 2 star and is still a Team Need for Speed driver for 2011. The Formula Drift season is right around the corner and Matt Powers has “sold his soul” as some of you might think by turning to the General Motors Performance Parts (GMPP) powers and sourced a LS7 engine. Along with his new engine the whole car seems to be getting a revamp which can be seen over at MotoIQ in a five page write up that we had a blast checking out.

The important part is the closing where Matt Powers said he could beat Vaughn Gittin Jr. at anything other than eating crabs and drifting. We want to see that happen!
