Shuichi Shigeno’s Japan-based street-racing series Initial D began in the mid-’90s and took nearly two decades to complete.

AWD And Bluetooth Issues Almost Ruined BMW’s Eight-Hour Drifting World Record AWD And Bluetooth Issues Almost Ruined BMW’s Eight-Hour Drifting World Record

Records for World’s Trustiest Bluetooth Connection or Least Likely to Switch Drive Modes Randomly, if they existed, don’t sound flashy or exciting. It makes sense that BMW would rather put the energy into pulling off an eight-hour drift than focus on those silly details, but sometimes details end up being important.

Japan Has Yet Another Good Car Idea: PVC Drifting With Tiny Kei Hatchbacks Japan Has Yet Another Good Car Idea: PVC Drifting With Tiny Kei Hatchbacks

A few years back, a drift team in Japan that normally runs Toyota Corolla AE86s branched out into drifting minute kei car front-wheel-drive hatchbacks, easily purchased for about $300.

You’ve probably seen Ernie’s giant red sedan drift car on YouTube or Fred Lump Lump on Instagram if you don’t know him in person. But he missed his flight home to LA from Mexico on Jan. 25 and his family hasn’t heard from him since. Now the internet is looking for him, and hopefully we can help.

The Sickening Squeal Of This RWD VW Golf Shredding Tires Will Keep You Awake At Night The Sickening Squeal Of This RWD VW Golf Shredding Tires Will Keep You Awake At Night

I tend to like German cars. The Volkswagen Golf is good. An E30 BMW 3 Series is also good. Throwing the rear subframe of an E30 under a forest green Golf and then destroying some tires is just something else.

It was only a matter of time. All the signs were there. Finally, in America, Corvettes are taking over drifting. Surprisingly, the momentum feels like it started abroad.

This Guy May Have Built An Indestructible Toyota Corolla AE86 This Guy May Have Built An Indestructible Toyota Corolla AE86

The old “hachiroku” Toyota Corolla AE86 is one of the most beloved cars in the automotive world. Simple, light, rear-wheel drive and not much else. But these 1980s heroes are getting old and frail, except for one in Japan.

Here’s How Refueling During A Record Eight-Hour Drift Turned Out For BMW Here’s How Refueling During A Record Eight-Hour Drift Turned Out For BMW

Because automakers enjoy pointless spitting contests and have the resources to participate, we get things like BMW’s specially developed method to refuel a car during an eight-hour world-record drift. But not everything went smoothly, and the more refuels they did, the more the cars smacked into each other.

Watch A Bone Stock Infiniti G35 Shred This Frozen Parking Lot Watch A Bone Stock Infiniti G35 Shred This Frozen Parking Lot

Winter can really get you down, especially when it’s painfully cold outside. Fortunately, this sense of despair can be easily cured through the proper, very sideways use of a neatly plowed parking lot.

BMW Invented Mid-Drift Refueling Just To Reclaim Its Record For World's Longest Drift BMW Invented Mid-Drift Refueling Just To Reclaim Its Record For World's Longest Drift

Once upon a time, BMW set a Guinness World Record for longest drift. Toyota then beat it twice in three years. So, because bragging rights are very serious in the car world, BMW decided to shatter both records without the modifications allowed to make the drift go more smoothly. That required some creativity.

Learn How To Do A Perfect Donut So You Can Do A Good Drift

If you have dreams of getting extremely sideways but don’t quite have the courage to try and slide your car inches from a wall, believe it or not you can start by doing donuts. And luckily for you, Formula D pro drifter Ken Gushi has some tips for us on how to make a sweet tire-slaying circle. Pay attention to him and…

Why Car People Love Snow Why Car People Love Snow

Snow is truly the great equalizer that doesn’t care what kind of car you have. You could take David’s totaled Kia Rio out in the slippery white stuff and have a ball. Snow will make you a donut superstar anyway. To demonstrate this fact, here is a delightfully loud Porsche Cayenne GTS getting sideways. Enjoy.

You may think to yourself “I like driving that is fun and enjoyable! For me to engage in driving that is fun and enjoyable, what I need is a vehicle that is extremely expensive and heavily modified.” Nah. You can get by with speed. Lots of speed.

Drift Your Diesel Truck Drift Your Diesel Truck

Few things are more hilarious and satisfying than seeing a vehicle do something outside of its intended use. Take pro drifter Chelsea DeNofa’s diesel pickup truck, for example. He drifts the truck, too. I mean, why not?
