Justin Pawlak brought his Falken Tire Ford Mustang to Panama last month along with Matt Powers, Joon Maeng, and Odi Bakchis. This video documents Justin Pawlak’s trip, and gives us a cool behind-the-scenes look at one of the many international demos that FD does each year.
Check out Taylor Wright who already dropped his Matsuri video from Ebisu over the past weekend! While we dig through our hundreds of hours of ReplayXD footage you can watch this awesome video as a trailer to all the things coming up from us over at Wrecked! In fact, you can even see our ReplayXD rig in his video at around 1:23. We had a blast making the pilgrimage out to Ebisu Circuit and cannot wait to show you in the coming weeks everything we documented!
Just one of the awesome clips we captured at the Spring Matsuri Drift Heaven week at Ebisu Circuit was this group of drivers mounting tires by hand. This one drifter we captured on film could mount a whole tire ready for air in 56 seconds using his hands, feet, and a crowbar. Sit back and watch this awesome feat.
Sadly we are a little late to the party with this awesome video showing Mad Mike Whiddett tearing up Crown Range in New Zealand which involves 47 corners, 1076 metres elevation, 10.4km lon (6.5 miles for us Americans). The road is the highest paved road in New Zealand elevation wise and shows Mad Mike putting on a talent show. Sit back and enjoy watching this one or playing it again as its by far one of the best produced drift videos of 2013.
A brief but well put together video from MLC Productions came to us today. This is the first real chance we’ve had to see what the track looked like, and it looks like a fun and smokey layout. Although Daigo Saito earned his umpteenth-straight victory in FD Asia, several drivers gave him a run for his money in the process.
The G1GP series for those who are not familiar is a fun series for foreigners to compete in from all over the world where drifting started in Japan. The series found 50+ drivers for yesterdays event at Ebisu Circuit. The qualifying sessions are done in a similar Formula 1 style. The event is split into four run groups and each run group goes out on the track at one time to qualify and the judges then pick the top drivers to advance into a Top 16. During one of the last run groups this happened to shut down the track for a few minutes. Both drivers got out just fine but one car is going to be retired for the weekend of Matusri we believe after this hit. Huge thanks to Enjuku Racing for helping us make the trek out to Japan for G1GP and Matsuri weekend!
James Deane found success at the first round of the Irish Drifting Championships, and today he pushed out a video which documented the weekend. Although he found success, it wasn’t without some trials and tribulations. Some bent and broken parts in the process and some tricky weather made it far from a walk in the park, but Deane was able to pull through and take home the top spot on the podium.
Sit back with Odi Bakchis as he takes us through the debut of his 2013 Formula Drift season at Streets of Long Beach. A completely new chassis with a LS3 engine puts power to the ground with the help of Clutch Masters product. Odi stepped up his horsepower for the new season adding nitrous to his competitive edge for the new year. See how he liks his clutch which helps him with quick starts and is always reliable.
Michael Essa brought out this E46 M3 for 2013 and right out of the box looked insane compared to his Z4. This M3 runs a Clutch Masters 850 Series Twin Disk clutch which according to Essa is working out perfectly for his new drift season. Listen to what he says about his product while he rips around the Long Beach streets course.
