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/Wall Stadium and Club Loose's East Coast Bash.
