The guys over at Falken Tire finally have come to the conclusion we hear at Wrecked Magazine to pull Darren McNamara from the left hand drive Nissan 350z as some pretty lackluster performances since crashing the Saturn Sky at Streets of Long Beach. This switch out of the 350z is huge and from what we told cuts him from the ASD program all together.
Two different sources have confirmed however that SPD Metal Works (team who runs 2011 FD Champion Dai Yoshihara S13) will be taking the reigns of the Falken S15 which is now V8 powered. While some drivers like Calvin Wan struggled with the Falken S15 Silvia it was used later by James Deane with great success.
The car is now revamped with a V8 engine since it has seen competition and is also RHD which is the natural driving side Darren McNamara has been driving in during his drift career. The deal seems to still be in the works but we think it will be active by Formula Drift Round 4 at Wall Stadium. What does everyone think of this car swap?
