VIDEO: "All Or Nothing" - Formula Drift 

Filmed by Zak Kerbelis & Abbitt WIlkerson 

The glitz and glamour of drifting professionally is not actually what it appears. It takes many years of hard work and endless dedication from the drivers, their family, and friends. They sacrifice everything they have in order to drift. 1KIND proudly presents another side of drifting in Formula D to show you their humble beginnings and the efforts to keep doing what they love.

Improving a Pony Car's Handling - Part 1: Suspension Adjustability on a Budget

By Vince Illi

Apparently I’m weird. (I just told you something you didn’t already know, right?) MotoIQ people think I’m nuts for driving a domestic vehicle with too many cylinders under the hood. Fellow Mustang owners think I’m nuts for racing my car around corners. Road Racers think I’m nuts for dodging cones in parking lots and calling it “autocross” instead of a “driver’s license exam.”

24 Hours of LeMons Project Frankenmiata Miata Coolant RerouteProject Frankenmiata - The Ultimate Coolant Re-Route

by Dave Coleman

Our Frankenmiata makes almost double the stock power output, and can endurance race in 100+ degree weather with the coolant temp staying under 200 degrees. In more civilized weather, it often stays below 180. There's some magic in our cooling system that I'm going to reveal now for the first time. Of course, this is the first time because I've been too lazy to do it before, not because it's some big secret. Still, it sounds more impactful when I use that "first time" line, doesn't it?

By GT Channel

http://gtchannel.com for more car videos. http://www.facebook.com/gtchannel A rough start would be an understatement as team and Dai had to hustle through to make top 16.

How high can he climb the bracket and close the gap between Justin Pawlak and Daigo Saito at FD Round 3 Palm Beach? Check it out!

Project Husqvarna TE610 Part 5: Dual Sport Adventure Bike Day Trips

by Dan Barnes

The Husky has been getting more miles on it and has received a little love to make day trips safer, more comfortable and more convenient. A fresh battery, a new and improved seat and just a little bit of carrying capacity make the bike all-day capable, as long as there's gas in it.

Project IS-F Part 5: Sikky Manufacturing Rear Sway Bar, Figs Engineering Adjustable Lower Arms and Toe Links, Project Mu Brake Rotors and Pads

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off, we had just installed KW Variant 3 coilovers on our car with some superlight Volk G2 wheels and sticky Nitto NT05 tires.  The wheels had a pretty awesome fitment filling the wheelwells nicely without being too radical for fully practical everyday driving.  Now it was time to finish setting up the chassis.  We wanted to make the car capable of doing some track work without sacrificing ride comfort, daily driveability or tire life.

Driver Blog: Tyler McQuarrie

By Tyler McQuarrie

I arrived at Road Atlanta 6th in points and confident after the first round of the Formula D Championship. Round 1 at Long Beach went well considering it was my first time competing in the Mobil 1 Chevrolet Camaro and our first time competing as a team. We showed everyone in Formula D that we are a serious contender for the 2012 Formula D Championship. Every driver looks forward to the Atlanta event simply because the crowd is awesome and it always ends up being one of the best events of the year.

Behind the Smoke 2 - Ep 8 Palm Beach Rain Drifting and Wrecking - Dai Yoshihara 2012

By GT Channel

After a devastating defeat at Formula Drift round 2 Atlanta, Dai flew to Malaysia to judge FD Asia. But he's back in the States to take on round 3 Palm Beach. There are sour memories of Palm Beach from last year when he was knocked out at top 32 but this time around he can't afford to miss the podium. Both first place JTP and second place Daigo Saito lead the overall standings and could leave Dai behind if he doesn't perform well this round. He's off to a rough start as it starts raining minutes before his qualifying run...
