im sure its at about 0 degrees, very optimal for drifting because you want to be able to control the amounts of traction you have while its spinning. you want more extreme amounts of camber in the front when drifting because at full lock it will have more tire patch contact compared to having less camber.

i think it looks way better this way, it has that drifting feel to it rather than the traditional vip/subtle look. i loved this look for 240sx overs

Default Rear fenders

I really like how wide the rear fenders are, did you make them or they were pre made?

To each his own. Those exposed rivets would drive me nuts. Id have to shave it in. And my car would be primer till those gaps and lines were perfect. Vent shades, 2002 "look at me" wing and aftermarket mirrors woulnt touch my car. Leave that spice for the rice.

Everything under the hood is killing it. Im sure you are making a ton of power.

Since he drifts this that is not a concern. For me I need it to look factory, almost like it came with the car. It all depends on what you will use your car for. His ride will get beat up at the track but that's what it's for. For him at least.

Good thing it's not your car I guess . I'm just glad the guy is sharing details about his drift car on here instead of just posting pics on instagram or talking about what he's dreaming of doing. I have the same kit and will mold it, but my car is street car. You got pics of your car to share? We need some more content on here like he's posting instead of more criticizing and talking.

Preach!!

It's suppose to be a forum where people don't have to worry about being criticized when they post their car mods. If you don't like it no need to knock it. Just open your own thread and post your own style if modding/tuning. Simple

Well with every coin comes two sides. Those who like it and those who don't. Im glad he shared his ride. I wasnt trying to tear him down or tell him he should change it. I was just sharing my ideas as well. The door should be able to swing both ways. If someone posted a bright hot pink GS300 with gutted interior and sitting a foot higher on 26" rims do we all have to chime in congratulating. Im guessing most would go the route I did and try to compliment where possible with your own opinion then give constructive criticism

And to the OP, I do apologize for crowding up your thread with this little side track.
