    Wow thats insane! Maybe it has something to do w/ D1 cars needing to be streetable and many of the mods common on D1 cars nowadays are NOT street legal. Just a thought......

      That is exactly what the article is about.

      No Sequiential Trannys, Lexan, Carbon fiber dashes, other parts on cars (ie nissan on a subaru), motor swaps, light weight door panels, etc......Not a street car.

          Wow, if they do that, it will be cool to see what tuners will do to the cars! I guess it is getting to a point cars are insanely modified and getting a little dull to the spectators. The proposed rule change appears to be a way to spice things up. The spirit of drifting originates from the streets and it makes sense to make the competing cars more "streetable".

          I don't necessary support all the proposed rule changes though. It looks like some of them are a bit harsh and take away coolness of the cars. Engine swaps should still be allowed since that's part of the art of building cars and add character to the cars. There are tons of cars on the streets that have engine swaps.

          However, banning sequential tranny and reinforcement chassis welding are two that I support because that is not something you see on the streets too often.

          Anybody out there who can understand what exactly the article is about, please enlighten us.

            There is a shortened version of the D1gp rules. I found a full version somewhere else online. It said the car must have a current tag, street legal etc etc. Factory dash, catalytic converter, OEM door and structural support. Not certain what all the oterh stuff is cus I cant read Japaneese

                  their making a new D1 class under the original so more people are able to compete in D1 without a bigname sponsor, so there soon gonna be not one, but TWO D1 leagues so there's gonna be the orignial D1 and the street legal D1. Its set to start in august
                  although i like pretty much all the changes for the new D1 class, i agree w/Hubert Young on the engine swap rule. well, maybe this way, we'll finally get to see some RB20s competing.....or we just wont see any R32s, C33, or A31s(since RB20s are considered by many as crap like how stateside drifters see KAs)

                      i think this isa plus in a sense due to the fact that now as stated earlier there are two leagues meaning that much more of a chance to becoming a top contender in someways its turning into baseball you start at the bottom and make your way up. which is nice because it will source out the super talented vs the person who just wants to compete but stay more true to drifting(meaning no big sponsorships) i for one am down to run with this more track time! plus more events plus they are going to be bigger and better i for one TOTALLY support this

                        If you ask me, if they trully are starting a street class, that will be very hard to regulate...

                        What coilovers are allowed?
                        how much roll cage?
                        Sway bars?
                        I would tend to agree with the rules about motor swaps, but what about turbocharging? Is that allowed? It seems like what will happen eventually is everyone will end up with a spec car ie 350Z, 240SX....

                        It sounds a lot like the showroom stock racing I used to do. There will be one platform that will work, and everyone will end up driving that car, and then people will get real creative with bending the rules.....

                        So in some instances it is good to separate the classes to allow the privateer a chance to shine. Maybe we should look at that over here in the US soon.

                          I think they should have as class they do currently(almost like an unresrticted), and then lower more strict classes beneath. What about a MR class???

                            Yup, getting creative in bending the rules would take a lot of cash and it would end up costing as much to have a competitive car in that class.

                              No air jacks? I mean, i dont have them, i dont know anyone who does, but why does it matter about how you lift your car to work on it? It doesn't make your drifting any better. Just something that was bothering me.
