We had the chance to take a few shots of Chris’ Speed Factory S2000 Formula Drift Car this past weekend. Chris was not able to get the car running in time for round 1 but we’re looking forward to seeing this S2k at Road Atlanta! He calibrated with Speed Factory this year, who is known for 1000+ hp drag racing Honda’s, so we can’t wait to see how it squares up against those V8′s. I’m sure Chris will have the huge Honda fan base cheering him on throughout the season. Awesome to see a Honda back in FD – We’re also stoked on those blue wheels – 18×9.5 Enkei NT03+M custom powder coated blue wrapped in Falken tires! Check out the photos and spec list after the jump! Feel free to share them with your friends.
We had the chance to have another one of Janet’s amazing cars in our WMD Formula Drift tent this past weekend! Last year, we featured her AE86 coupe. This time we had the pleasure of having this pristine 1985 Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86 Hatch! Thanks again to everyone who stopped by to check out this amazing piece of machinery! More pics and specs after the jump!
Michael Essa scored almost a perfect run during qualifying Friday afternoon in Long Beach, California! Essa earned a 97 (out of 100 points). The 2013 champ came out swinging – let’s see who finishes on the podium tomorrow! Top 32 begins at 11am Saturday – gates open at 10 am. See you there! – WMD
The 2013 10th Anniversary Formula Drift season ended at Irwindale Speedway in front of a sold out crowd this past weekend! Essa would ultimately end up winning the championship and Daigo would win round 7. But, not before a bit of a controversy.

“I feel like I get asked the question a lot, How did you become a pro drifter? The only way I answer it is, I did it! I decided I wanted to do it!” – Nate Hamilton
What you are looking at here is Scott Pham’s 1987 RX7. It started life as a Turbo 2 model with a turbo 13b that Scott proceeded to build out, but after having endless problems with the setup he decided to move on. Scott parted out the motor but kept the shell in his backyard because he was still in love with the chassis. There were stints with various other cars but one that stuck around for a while was a Cressida with a big turbo 1.5JZ. Scott loved the motor but wanted a change. A handful of cars later Scott also decided that he wanted to start competing in the local Evergreen Drift Pro Am series. The car? That old RX7 he had sitting in his yard but this time with a whole new monster of a JZ motor for it, the result being a twincharged 1JZ.
