Drifting is gay. Sorry. If you like it you probably also like Dance Dance Revolution, Anime and Lollicup. Please check your genitals at the door, you no longer need them.

It's more like the special olympics of motorsports.

i'm not that knowledgeable about drifting, tho i have been friends with Jon for many years. i do appreciate the dynamics and skill involved, tho as stated before, i dislike the judging.

He lowered the limiter on the engine at the beginning of the season to save the supercharger. I suspect he raised the limit for the last event of the season.

I dont know anyone who has taken their passion for a hobby and turned it into a profession, let alone in 4-5 years. people often criticize what they don't understand. i have a huge respect for Jon. MX_eva hit it on the head with 'satire' built into his car.

the sub is removable, which he does before racing. Eclipse is a sponsor, gives him cash and equipment, so he has it in his car while it is in the paddock.



i didn't realize how hard he has to work the car, both in control and finesse, until he came to LA this summer for an event. he makes it look easy and he's good at it. good enough to drive a mazda-sponsored MX-5 in formula drift next year. i feel fortunate to have been able to help him land this in some small part. it's great to see good people get the rewards they deserve.

I dont care if its a satire, its still gay. If i had a dick in my mouth (as part of a satire) it would still be gay.


Albeit not as gay as the Hello Kitty stuff

Yeah he does get the drivers seat of that car, and a lot of people would kill to have it. I'm not sure why all of you guys are acting like the m.net anti-drift fiends. I'm pretty damn sure if you guys even knew any drifters you'd cut your comments because they are typically the most humble guys out there in motorsports and not looking to make themselves out to be dicks.

That MX-5 puts down ridiculous power and while the paint is a bit horrid part of the whole drift car deal is to have a car that has desirable parts that no one else can get their hands on...ala carbon fiber itbs.

One of my friends drifts and works for tougee factory good guy. Drifting is still gay, and if he had a hello kitty interior it would also be gay. Better?

The drifting scene is pretty much the NOPI scene, which is about as flamboyant as it gets with cars (maybe low riders...). So I'd say to that point the car is what it needs to be.

Until you've actually tried to bring your hobby up to the pro level and then continue to support it, it's difficult to grasp just how immense the task really is. Fortunately for Marty/Jon, he's doing something that's "hot" now and has a huge following. He's where he needs to be and doing what he needs to do - and all from a grassroots level. I think that deserves respect. - rob

agreed, the guy deserves all the pros he can get, like i said, its not an easy task driving a pink miata you punks :gay:
i wanna meet this guy in person, i heared great things about him, i envy him for what he has accomplished, even though I'm not into drifting at all, but how cool is it to be sponsored from the very manufacturer that you adore for making your love of your life (2nd or 3rd in some cases)...so common all you douchebags, bend over and take it like a man, give him props and put the haterade back in the fridge.....................bitches :gay:

oh ****, im done

Rob? Black NB, Chicago? If so, that's my favorite NB. Hands down.

That pretty much sums it up.
