Drift Heaven magazine, January 09, pg20~23.




This is a story of two brothers, who were inspired by watching WRC videos.

"this type of drift entry is usually called "ass end first", but I call it "rear explosion" or "unlimited angle". I thought this is the coolest thing to do in drifting. It's the feeling of throwing your car as fast as possible with a lot of angle, then floor it and not spin out. My brother and I 've been studying and searching this technic since october of 2007. my home circuit is Nikko, so we actually made our steering angle in favor of long left sweeper, 60 degrees of angle. people have asked me if "more angle the better?", and I think more angle is essential for those who seek this type of weird drifting experiences. "

As crazy as it sounds, these brothers have figured out the way to drive there lightly modified rear wheel drive Silvia to drift like one of those 4 wheel drive Rally cars.
These are some of the tricks that they have done to their cars.

Modified knuckles-> gives them quick steering to produce quick reaction. More angle. (use Ikea formula lower arms with no bump stop, the combination between mod knuckles and no bump stop gives them 60 degrees.)

F16x8, -1 offset with 205 neova. R17x9 255 Federal ss559. -> this tire size is cheap, (4 wheel slide makes your front tires wear out fast!)
also cut out the wheel well to gain more tire clearance at full lock.

Run a lot of front camber up front-> more contact surface at full lock.

Disconnect the rear sway bar.-> this makes your car not as slideier so you can throw it harder but gives you a little bit of understeer.
Disconnect both front and rear sway bars-> you can feel all 4 tire's motion. This also takes care the understeering issue.

They say that they make a lot of mistake and course-out a lot trying this entry but when they do get it, they say it feels amazing, as if you are in another dimension(possibly D-dimension lol) .

It reminds me of when the girl in the exorcist turns her head completely around. That much angle. Haha.

I don't know about the fronts but on the rear a lot of people like not having the sway on. Including davedge.

I'm gonna try my Fc without the front sway bar, that way I 'll have more angle too.

im just worried about stuff rubbing without the extra stiffness. we'll see though disconnecting the endlinks takes 5 seconds.

What is there to cut in the front fender well? All I can think of is the dome piece, but it seems like the frame rail is the limiting factor of any kind of angle
