On the Scene: Drift Battle DVD on Netflix Streaming [VIDEO]

If your a Netflix user I am sure you are familiar with the great Watch Instantly feature they now offer. Well On the Scene: Drift Battle was recently added to instant streaming feature from best we can tell giving all you drift fans a weekend treat. In fact, I am watching it right now as I type out this post with great flashbacks into the early days of drifting in America. The video clocks in at just over one hour and ten minutes. Remember you can send Neflix to your Xbox360 so you can watch this on your television. It’s worth a few minutes if you want to check out Formula Drift stars back in the day.I love the interview with Ross Petty that is truly a classic.

If your not a Netflix member you can always buy it from Wrecked Magazine:

Forza 3 Drift Setup: Conrad Grunewald’s 2010 Chevrolet Camaro

Forza Motorsport 3 - Team Blackjack - 2010 Chevrolet Camaro - Conrad Grunewald

Installment two of Project Blackjack drifting setups has arrived at Wrecked Magazine. This one features the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro with Conrad Gruenwald’s 2010 look that debuted at SEMA 2009. Earlier this month we debuted Daijiro Yoshihara’s Discount Tire S13 in the game which is a great setup.

This one is a little more experienced of a setup to handle but once you get it down it will make some insane scores. 4th gear is a good start on this car and once you start to get a feel for it, try drifting around in 5th for the huge points. You will need to buy a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro which costs $33,000 to get started. To get the wrap just visit the storefront of CobraTuner who has a perfect replica of this car which we used in the photos. Here is how the modifications go for this insane powered ride.

Reason to Buy AutoWeek Car Pack – Vaughn Gittin Jr. 2010 Mustang Is Here

Forza Motorsport 3

So the Autoweek Car Pack had some decent cars but the 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is available in the pack which with the help of Saleen bumpers is easily made into a 2010 Falken Tire Ford Mustang drift machine. I recommend  throwing a stock car motor in the thing and tune the suspension/transmission away to your liking. This car wrap is available in “CobraTuner”  storefront for under 10,000 credits!

The Santa Monica Airport Hanger release 2010 Mustang he drifted around is also available in the same storefront for a little more virtual cash. If you don’t remember what that car looks like you can mosey on over to our 2010 Mustang Debut video or check out the 2010 Mustang Gallery we made from the same night. This really is a spot on render if your looking to add to your collection of Formula Drift cars in Forza Motorsport 3.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. – It’s Time for a Call Out!

I am not sure if you have seen a promotion that Ford and Need for Speed SHIFT have been putting on but they strapped four video gamers into Need for Speed SHIFT with a 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 at Horse Thief Mile and compared their video game times to real world times. None of the kids could do it of course but then I wondered if it could be done at all.

So I am calling out Vaughn Gittin Jr. out on behalf of all our fans at Wrecked Magazine to a Need for Speed SHIFT challenge of my own. I want to run the same track in Xbox 360 with the famed Shelby GT500 at Horse Thief and see if Vaughn Gittin Jr. can beat my time!

Now please link this around and cause a buzz so we can make this happen. Leave a post in the comments if you love America as well. I wish to put my video gaming skills to a true real life challenge already! Let’s do this Vaughn Gittin Jr., I await your reply. My right thumb versus your right foot per say.
