  • Harri Tervola @ IRL WDC Drift Demo St. Petersburg (In Car Video)

    Drift demos were held at the St. Petersburg downtown IndyCar race this past weekend on Fri. Sat. and Sun.

    This is the in-car footage from the Ter-Tech E34 535i during Saturdays session. Car is running on 5cyl, WAY down on power. But the brand new Kumhos still couldn't hold more than 2 laps.... boooo

    Most of the drivers used the straights for cool down, and the organizer asked the drivers to put special attention on turns 4-5-6-7 (the second group of corners/drifting) for the VIP tent. [Second section of video is filmed looking from turn-5 towards turn-4, also taken Saturday April 1st]

    The other drivers in the video at the end are Ernie Fixmer in the Red S13, Verene Mei in the red 350Z, Blake Fuller in the White 350Z, Dan Willie in the Batlground S14, and Doug VanDenBrink in the red turbo Mustang

    This event was more or less testing crowd reaction and it seems it went awesome. Hopefully IRL will be adding more demos and maybe even host some points rounds with WDC.

          Good lookin' demo.

          But I gotta ask, down on power for that E34 monster has got to be what, 400 - 500 RWHP?

              The event was a big step for drifting in the US. Looks like IRL will be hosting more events with WDC. As far as WDC comes they've been laying low for past year since some of the FD drivers went against them. BUT NOW WDC IS BACK IN FULL FORCE AND WILL BE BIG. WE'VE YET TO BE TREATED THIS PROFESSIONALLY BY ANYBODY AS WDC DID TO US!!!!! ANYTHING THEY DO IN THE FUTURE WILL HAVE OUR 100% BACKING. . THEY ARE ALL ABOUT THE DRIVERS AND GETTING SPONSORS FOR THE DRIVERS.
              To sum it up we all had a great weekend, blown car or not, and I know everyone who took part would like to extend huge thanks to WDC for putting this together and paying for everything throughout the weekend plus being the most professional people that I have had the pleasure of working with in the world of drifting.

With more fuel it prolly would make around 600-650 at 6500revs. Since a dead cylinder also robs power from the power stroke of another cylinder we were prolly around 300-350 rwhp

                  Hehehe, Scandivanian rally prep step-1

                  I also noticed the quick steering, do they make these for 240sx chassis?

                      i used a howe racing stealth HD quickener in my s13.... worked out really well cept for the dead steering feel and by multiplyin by 2 makes it tougher to turn the wheel...but ill take quickness over feel anyday

                        does anyone know what kind of exhaust is on that white 350z?


                        • #13
                          straight pipes would be my guess

                            stock pipes with test pipes and I think he ripped the internals from the mufflers not sure tough
