    I feel most of the drift cars in the uk look boring also most have to run what their sponsors say. As we built this off our own backs why not have some fun and stand out? Wait till you see it on track ;) Oh and yeah its not mittos any more :p

    Awesome that you've done what you wanted to do kudos for it, I've always wanted to do some sort of police livery on mines but I think I'll deviate from that and go more towards a military camo theme (been done loads I know) but with a difference at some point.

    Do agree though need a flash bar on there to finish it nicely, otherwise awesome and unique ftw!.

    Well I got to see this in the person on Sunday - There is police lights on this now and it looks pretty cool in person, I think the point to remember is that despite peoples opinions. This car is being used, which is more than can be said for the majority of 'Drift Car Builds' that appear to be popping up..

    This sounded unreal in person, you went by me when I was paying up just as that car was up in flames and it sounded like hell had opened its doors.. Seems to drift real nice aswell Geldy. Good fun on sunday.

    the vid that was put up isnt a good one for what the car can do as we have over heating problems so just hit top end of 2nd then let off hence the snapping back but think i need less toe on the rear what you think mitto?

    Well? Longer gears you won't be pulling away in 2nd now would you? So take your comments somewhere else. Also if you listen my first gear is quite long so yes 2nd gear was fine for a trail run a crail thanks

    doesn't really matter ( as you probably all ready know )

    even with the longest geared t56 box ( from a gto ) and the longest geared s body diff ( 3.6 ) you can still comfortably pull away in 4th with no issue. It's only 6th that has any sort of issue with a theoretical top speed of something like 250 mph.

    And sitting banging around in 2nd will kill your engine faster than you can come up with your next excuse. but you crack on fella. i'll just make sure I am here to say "told you so" when it happens

    Kieran- Indeed mate, While 1st is a lot longer, 2nd on a T56 is only a tiny bit longer than on a SR20 box, but not much.

    No, we're talking about an engine well known for having huge oil issues in drift applications, to the extent one US LS engine builder flatly refused to build me one (even with a proper 'shut up and take my money' conversation) without a dry sump as soon as I told him what it was for.

    So good input there.
