An S14 with Something New

When it comes to the S14, a chassis that has been modified by countless people around the world for the last two decades, it can be quite hard to stand out from the crowd. If you’re not building a car for competition drifting use or following a strict “2001 style” […]

The Next Generation of Grassroots Drift Chassis?

With running examples available for just a few hundred pounds these days, it’s a real shame the Mazda Rx-8 was only available with two fairly lacklustre engines while sporting looks that weren’t a patch on the FD3S Rx-7 that came before it. Even engine transplants haven’t been all that common […]

Right Car, Wrong Engine? Joe Ankers’ VG S14

The early days of drifting revolved heavily around people taking their daily drivers and driving them as hard as possible, progressively modifying them as they went until their cars resembled hardcore competition track toys that remained road legal. While this is still commonplace in the grassroots scene in both the […]
