From what I gather that Toyota has become somewhat of a cult car. Thinking about trading your GTV-6 for one? ;)

I'm already dabbling in that other world. I have a 200sx drift project. CA18DET will be going in. I'm part of a sponsored team in NorCal and it's been a blast!

I think Corollas are really overated but I would still love a 20 valve with ITB's in my driveway. Basically, it's a 2200lbs car, RWD, solid axle with 1.6 liters, 5 vavles per cylinder, and individual throttle bodies. That engine came stock in a later toyota, but the transplant is common. That little engine created 170hp our of 1.6 liters with no variable valve timing!

Very nice. N/A Rolla's just don't have the torque to do the stuff in your first clip, especially with the huge gear spacing.

Did you know we only get the Trueno, and not the Levin in the US? We should do parts exchange. I hear our pop up lights are worth something in OZ. Levin conversions are sought after here too Xp

InitialD is dumb b/c the main character never loses, the show just gets dull to watch after the first season or so. I will admit that a 2nd generation RX-7 never looked so good, and is what caused me to toy with them in High school.

Totally random, but a must watch:

It actually gets worse:

My understanding is all of this takes place in street intersections!

Drifting on a street that's abandoned or closed off is illegal, but not necessarily dangerous IMO.

The morons drifting on the wrong side of an open road through the hills is *far* worse than some guys doing burnouts in an intersection... Just imagine you were on a sports bike on a sunday ride and found yourself planted in the grill of some moron drifter on the wrong side of the road...
