Hey what you just described sounds alot like fraud and you should imediately contact some sort of authority. Is it across international borders It might be a federal felony here in the US. Was it an auction you should contact them too. And if that fails do ya know who they are and where they live? I know a guy for that.

Any word on when Yokomo is releasing their special drift tires? As for FWD drifting, it's possible, the Vid-Opt. guys built an EK Civic drifter... looks good

Yokomo is bringing out a new tyre for drifting next month.. Masami and the boys from Yokomo were testing them out a couple of weeks ago Yatabe.. Pretty impressive!

It consists of several seperate plastic rings which make up the whole tyre.. It should be out next month..

Here is a pic..

From the magazine, it looks like you get the tires aswell...
My kanji isn't the best, so i can read half of it!!

But for 21800 (It says 23800 in the magazine btw!) it would want to include more that just the body and tires!!

Would a FWD car would be good for drifting? I am planning to buy an YR-F2 with a PAL RX-7 body set.....

There will bi more videos coming out of my brothers drifting, and this clip isn't really good... He has a lot of Japanquality drifting to show to... Some front wheel shots to, where you can see him hit the ideal line all the time

The AE86 one with the permanently poped up headlights
(i think the ones without permanent popped up light is 200mm, and the popped one is 190mm)

Integras and Civics can't really do real drift... get those RRs outa there
Erh the ABC Trueno with the pop-up head lamps was a limited production item, came with a carbon-look sticker sheet for the bonnet as well. Both the pop-up and non-pop up Trueno were availiable in 190mm form... I know that for a FACT coz I have both

Integras and Civics RR???? I believe you mean FF rite?

I've been curious about this whole drifting thing. Are there any particular bodies you guys like to see available in relation to this?

We have access to some of the following:

Honda Civics 190mm
Accura Integras 190mm
Mazda RX7 190mm
Toyota Supras 190mm
Mitsu Evos (200mm)
Subaru WRX (200mm)
Nissan Silvias 190mm

Or any other makes you guys are interested, please let me know! I just want to get educated on this whole drifting thing.

Hi Steve
I just watched a video of the Japanese 2002 D1 Drift Grand Prix, seems that where full sized cars are concerned, the most popular drifter is the Silva (S13, 14, 15, Sil Eightly etc).... NOT a single FF (eg. Civic, Integra were there ).... the Toyota AE86 (Trueno and Levin) were very popular too... and the Mazda FD3S.

Cheers
