I think after GRDA, I'm officially retiring from the school of high-horsepower drifting. Low horse is where it's at! They are just so much more fun and easier to control - not to mention so much cheaper to build!



That's an absolutely flung-in 90-degree entry in a car with less than 300 horsepower and stock tires. And that's Chia's silver (paint not loaded) PS13 behind me - he'll vouch that it pulled that off lap after lap after lap.

I don't even want my sponsor car anymore. Seriously. Cue revelatory J-rock.

Also thank you, BNB brethren. In the time I've spent here, I've legit learned how to drift in this damn game. I was garbage as hell before I found this place. You're all my very special somepony.

You're welcome.
Also, seems that my 'beater' competition/matsuri can get some ground now.

I'll discuss with Smooth and will try to set this up.

where can i find info about this 250hp comp/meet you were talking about last week addie? Is that yours TRK?


i have 2 86 tunes that are pretty epic one is 200hp the other around 250.

I guess I should drift tune the gremlin since its just sitting around not doing anything. low hp/high torque

Mine isn't HP limited, just money limited.
<$10,000, this inspires people to go bargain hunting which in my eyes is the true BNB definition.

Yes.
I've built a drift car for $7,400 now, an SR20 powered S13.
Remember that the sport suspension, sport weight reduction and the 2.0 way differential are free. I'm still looking for second hand adjustable suspension and perhaps even an aftermarket exhaust.

I've tried several other cars that will work, even if there are no second hand parts available.

I'm trying to get Smooth to bring up the Scrapyard but I will discuss that with him.

An SR20 powered S13? Unless you're talking about the stock SR20 in it, the S15 SR20 is another $7k on top of the cost of the car, making it $14,000+.

Okay, well then the car is $7k and he's saying he built it for $7,400. That means he must've bought the engine for $400 or maybe he bought the car for $4k and the engine for $3,400. Idk, it still doesn't add up. If the tournament goes through, I'm gonna build a 185 HP AE86.
