Well, after the D1 what would you expect. Its going mainsteem now. At least maybe we will get some new parts and places to race.

Im Guessing HONDA's will be the first to come out.

Because Honda is the least manufacturer that has an FR in their line.

guys chill, i want honda to come out with FR, gives us another reason to make fun of them and humiliate them with our legit drift cars...:cool:

honda has an FR dumba$$... S2000


a small note, just because a car is FF does not mean its not as good as a FR... DC2 and EG6 are really good touge cars... and it takes good drivers to not understeer them off the mountains... so if you see a FF on a touge thats not a F&F fag... dont mess with it cuz you'll prolly get beat..

MR, FR, FF, AWD all have strenghs and weaknesses... just because you dont like them dont mean they're not bad cars...

and if you know anything, youd know that in the near future almost all cars made will be FF..:confused: "they must be doing somthing right!"

I know. I dont understand why more people dont drift the s2000?

comon you honestly think an integra is better than a 240 on a mountain pass...atleast drifting i mean??

if they were good drifting cars..dont you think you would see a whole bunch of them drifting..by pros...not your everyday F&F..like you...

and the reason why there is more FF out there isnt because they are great cars...it because they are all economy cars..they are good commuters..all sports cars are rear wheel drive..

so relax and chill

yes honda already has a FR..its the s2000 and the reason they dont use it its because...its still a very expensive car..

The DC2 does well in touge and is lbeled as the best FF touge car built.Touge racing is mostly grip,so the cars drifting capabilities would be irrelavant.

if you want a touge car get a 2000 celica gts...or even a GT...that car can out hadle the dc2 anyday...

too expensive in my book.

The 350Z is cheaper and offers more aftermarket support and IMO gives more performance for the dollar.Why pay more for less?

Well, it is only saturday and some of us had a bet to see how long it would take before people that don't know anything would make dumb posts like this one. One guy bet two weeks others mostly agreed that it would happen around monday. Wow, it took a whole two days.

Hmmm... Drifting getting popular? There's both good sides and bad sides to this.

Let's start with the good...
1. Possibly more parts
2. More places that accept drifting (more tracks)
3. More events and chances to meet the greats (K.T. - Drift King)

And now the crappy side...
1. A lot more wannabees
2. Cops trying to crack down on EVERYONE!!!
3. More car accidents

I don't know if drifting getting popular is better or worse for the sport.

i never once said that a DC2 is a better drifter then a RS13... i just said that it a good car... so are civcs..

now you must feel cool you can flame on people for liking FF cars.. go ahead and call me a F&F kid... i don fu(kin care... your the ignorant jerk that dont understand that drifting isnt even the fast way around the track..or down the mountain..

now on the side of which is a better drifter, its no contest... a FF CANNOT DRIFT... so the RS13 would win that... thats why you dont see DC2 at the D1...:rolleyes:

okay dude whoever called me a dumbass or whatever, i knew the s2k was FR honda vehicle, its just that i dont see them drifting much, and they are too expensive. S2k is an amazing car quite popular too. Touge racing if anyone seen the Touge videos with Tsuchiya he pwned the s15...with a 190 hp car, so dont think im close minded on just nissans, i think he was racing with mr2 or something, and then the integra type r he went nuts with it so fast, he had so much control he was like in the curbs able to take turns w/o drifting...

ok first of all...i know what drifting is about...and i know because ive been into drifting for while now..im not a rookie

and prodigy..dont quote me ..you didnt understand my post clearly..i was asking panda eighty six...that question from his previous post..

second of all..yes the celica is a better canyon carver than the DC2..its was proven in best motoring video...

oh and panda 8-six im not flaming you for liking FF car..i have a FF to..so dont get hurt...

Space boy i have to agree with you..on your post..

dumb kids calling a corolla gts a trueno or levin..or calling sr5 hachi rokus..

but hey..what do you expect...st*pid cartoon geeks

Lemme just get this out of the way now:


Will all of you please just SHUT THE @#$% UP! Don't take everything so personally, and just let it slide if someone says something wrong. They're not spreading misinformation throughout the world. If you have to correct, then do it without instigating $hit. It's been two days and the forum is already going downhill, if I see one more argument in a thread I'm going to shoot Chas in the face...and I dont think he'd be too happy about that.
