We take a detailed look at the variety of Chevrolet V8 engines in the Formula Drift series. The guys at SDparts.com really wanted us to highlight the variety of setups in the series so we walked around the paddock and did some quick interviews. In this segment of Chevy V8 engines we check out Danny George and his LS3 powered Mazda Miata. Then pay a visit to Joon Maeng with his Vortech Supercharged LS7 engine. To finish off the episode we grabbed Matt Field with this unique LQ9 engine setup which is also running a Vortech Supercharger to make big power. Check them out!

Wow! This entry by Chelsea DeNofa from the Tuerck’d video shoot day at Pat’s Acres is pretty awesome! Just sit back and watch this quick little video over and over again and try to figure out how on earth you are going to do the same thing in your 240sx this weekend.
Ryan Tuerck has a new Formula Drift sponsor for his Scion FR-S that was brought on right before Seattle. The company is Disc Brakes Australia and Tuerck has opted to run the 4000 series one-piece rotors. The T3 slotted brake rotor is the most aggressive one piece rotor which is optimal for motorsports applications. Good news for you street car fans is the rotor also cuts the mustard on the street. The rotors are crafted with high-carbon iron and cured with a patented process that reduces metal stress, rotor edges feature 3 paint marks which change color to reflect different levels of metal temperature, and DBA’s patented Kangaroo Paw ventilation comprised of 144 pillars between the rotor faces providing faster cooling and greater strength.
