I know this is really late and all, but there is a FF truck: the VW Rabbit sport truck.


...actually makes a very good autoX vehicle

Just wanna add a few more things actually getting a chance to read the thread a bit, that MR Truck was way off track. engineering thing of beauty but still not on line.

goin back to the bare bone idea now that we have a few more inputs.

95 ish Nissan Hardbody Truck.
SR20DET Powerplant been done so know it works.
still like the S13 triple projectors, and vented center piece
flared out all around with the same stock style,
Painted Skyline Blue.. stay with me here..

In the cab, body-drop the cab and brace it to the bed with a full cage treating the cab and bed into one piece.

deffinatly like the RX-7 rear end, as i said before its a good idea and i think itll work pretty good...

when adding bracing on the top and bottom balance is factored in.

i change the R34 idea because this was more original back in 2003 but times change.. but another set of a semi boxy set of tailights would work.

oh and a set of these tah roll with the blue color..


but yeah guys dont get to crazy about this its all in fun, back then it was unheard of.... but now look theyll be an official drift truck soon it seems like (Tacoma X rumored to drift by Rado. please dont get started on him!) but this was an idea.. i still have some sketches of it.

oh and the Syclone was a bad.as.s truck!

Thrillz

well if your read the newest issue of Drifting Magazine you'll notice a Q&A topic in there that is almost exactly like what the original creator of this thread was saying. S13 lights, SR20 motor. anyway, it's either the same guy or someone read this post and just decided to send it in to IR and Drifting. but if it's the same guy, judging as how he's still asking the same question like almost 2 years later, then i'm assuming that not much has been completed on the project.
