Drift Garage Episode 2 – ISIS Turbo Kit and Engine Prep [VIDEO]

Drift Garage Episode 2 takes Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg to another level with its missile car build by adding an ISIS turbo kit and getting the new KA motor installed. They also threw on a Mishimoto radiator and ISIS intercooler to fight off temperature issues.

Drift Garage Episode 1 with Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck [VIDEO]

Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg set to walk you through the building of a $5,000 drift car. The platform is a S13 Nissan 240sx and the build sets off with an introduction from Professor M. Issile. The episode starts with a 240sx hatchback being bought from Formula Drift driver Tony Angelo and a new KA engine from Elite JDM. The broken parts are off the car and next week seems all ready for the ISIS turbocharger being installed which was leaked by Chris in our last weeks Wrecked Weekly interview with him which you can see here.


Chris Forsberg – Wrecked Weekly Episode 9 [VIDEO]

After our original interview became out dated and quite a disaster due to people eating on his car (yes, that really happened) and me having random outbursts of laugher I scraped the original interview we shot.  I opted to shoot a retake interview over Google+ Hangouts on Air last night with Chris and we wound up talking about a ton of cool issues. While this episode lacks some formatting, name titles, and fancy editing it still provides tons of great content.

Chris Forsberg talks about his goals to hit 1000hp in his VK56 engine this year, we touch on protests, Formula Drift Pro 2 series, the 2014 World Cup, why D1GP banned nitrous, and his new daily driver which happens to be a RB swapped 240z.

I would also appreciate your feedback on the Wrecked Weekly series as a whole and what drivers you guys want to hear from next! Also, is the Google Hangout format acceptable or do you like the fully produced interviews? Thanks for watching as always.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. – Wrecked Weekly Episode 4 [VIDEO]

I got to sit down with Vaughn Gittin Jr. in the Ford Media Center for right around 30 minutes during the SEMA Show to talk with him about a number of really important topics. We covered his new project Mustang RTR, the state of Formula Drift, World Drift Series China, and his $5,000 fine for illegal suspension. We even got to break down his tandem battle with Patrick Mordaunt from Formula Drift Texas and get his thoughts on the first overturned judging call in the sport which directly impacted his season. Last but not least Vaughn spills the beans on when he will make the debut in a 2015 Ford Mustang!
