Drifting : Rise of the V-8 : Formula Drift (HD)

MPGomatic.com asks … Does life really go better with a V8? Professional drifting is a motor sport unseen by most Americans. At its highest level here in the USA, the teams in Formula Drift have moved markedly towards the V8 engine. While many (most?) folks associate drift with high-revving turbocharged four bangers, the reliability, horsepower, torque, and affordability of the V8 engine cannot be denied. This video was shot over the course of two hot and steamy weekends in New Jersey at Formula Drift Round 4 – the Gauntlet Stadium and Club Loose’s East Coast Bash.

  1. lol yet you keep replying fagget. no ones sending you messages quit tryna sound important hahaha

  2. lmao whos sending you messages fagget? you wish i had the time to do that. no keep replying and imma keep replying as well. i like bugging youtube cunts like you. you sound like your mad? ahaha sensitive bitch.

  3. Wrong. I don’t give a fuck what you said. I told you I don’t care so stop sending me messages in my inbox, you must be lonely or have no life or something. Are you gay? I’m not into gay men, if you are that is cool dude. w/e. Just be gay with your type of friends and stop messaging me about irrelevent bullshit. So fuck you nigger.

  4. Yet you replied to my post and still don’t get what i said. are you that thick headed? lol and you still reply that must apply to you since im not the one getting all anal talkinh about gay ass nascar. fuck off already xD

  5. I don’t care kid, I said what I wanted to and im over it, why do you insist on arguing? Are you too bent-out-of-shape to drop the subject and live your life without worrying what I said? I mean really grow up.

  6. You must be retarded. read back to your first response. lol you rambled on about nacar. why would i need to go back to hs when I’m done with school period? typical YT comeback, apparently you cannot fathom how stupid you are since its obvious that you cant read lol..dont believe me? look at our thread…keep replying to me. i’ll keep making you feel irrelevant. go on 🙂

  7. If having a V8 in your car made it better at drifting, wouldnt Fanga Dan have beaten him with his V8 powered commodore in last years D1NZ championship??

    You’d think so Mad Mike beat him anyway, in his custom built 4 Rotor powered mazda.

    For those who are uneducated, a 4 Rotor is two 1.3 litre mazda engines bolted together to make a 2.6 litre rotary.

    Yes that’s right, there’s a 2.6 litre naturally aspirated rotary out there pwning all the V8’s in NZ with double the engine capacity. Fuck V8’s

  8. Having a V8 in your car definitely does NOT make it easier to drift, or better at drifting.

    Take Mad Mike for example. He chooses to drift an RX7 with a custom built 4 rotor engine, and he has more than one of these cars, with the same engine. I know for a fact that at the price it costs to get a 4 rotor custom built you could buy about 10-20 V8’s.

    If having a V8 in your car made it better at drifting, wouldnt Mad Mike have just spent a fraction of the price on a V8?

  9. V8’s have been around FOR A LONG TIME MATE. Check your facts. The first V8 was made in 1902. Making them OVER A HUNDRED AND TEN YEARS OLD.

    You are right about one thing though. An engine doesnt make you a good drifter. That’s exactly why a V8 is no better to any 4 or 6 cylinder out there for drifting.

  10. an engine does not make you a good drifter, drifting requires skill over everything else. sure the right engine helps but, if he is used to that engine then he knows how it reacts. Since V-8’s are relatively new not many people have gotten used to them.

  11. haha you replied to me you dumbfuck. if you didn’t care what I had to say you wouldn’t of replied to me. you contradict yourself. Oh use proper punctuation on youtube? I’m probably older and accomplished more then you will ever in a span of 5 years, go to school, live a little get that sand out of your vagina and don’t ramble about gay ass nascar to me when I made a simple comparison. get laid bitch. lol xD

  12. If V8’s are so much better. Howcome Youichi Imamura is the only person to win the D1GP more than once, with 4 championships. He also has the most round wins ever. He has never used a v8.


  13. I responded to you in the right manner, YOU couldn’t figure out what I was talking about and responded with a bunch of random shit. Respond when you have something useful to say, or better yet don’t I dont give a fuck little kid. Learn to use proper punctuation and spell properly, or just go back to highschool.

  14. I said Formula D is basically Nascar’s drifting. it’s easier to drift a highly modded V8 then a i4.i6,V6 and anything else. it takes away from the skill. and drifting high speed turns in a V8 is fairly EASY. You obviously failed, you didn;t even address my statement and rambled on about NASCAR, not formula D. make sure you know the question before you use an irreverent answer kid.

  15. Wasn’t talking about style you buffoon, you must not be reading my statement clear. Tell me this is it easier to drift a V8? and why/why not?

  16. please the style and the technique is all there..you must not know what those words mean

  17. I agree with pilotdrifter, I mean the v8’s are kool but I’d personally would rather keep it original, im a big nissan fan so ill just keep nissan with a built rb26 but use tje rwd rb25 tranny being that the rb26 tranny is awd, if I was in a mazda I’d use a roterary cause it keeps it true to the drift game but thats just me and my opinion

  18. exactly!!, and i dont want to sound ignorant or anything but it takes a hell of a lot more skill to drift an under powered car, im not saying it doesnt take skills to drift, its very difficult, but v8s make it almost to easy.

  19. I know what you mean, but with progression of a sport things start getting weird, nascar- racing on a beach/ racing on a giant concrete oval. drifting- started in the streets/ america’s v8 are starting to take over
