Where to start, well basically this feature was a bit of an accident. Tim, James and Will were on their way to shoot the fire breathing RX7 of Steve Putt when they received some news that meant they would not be able to. Fear not however: the feature will be coming and when it does, boy are you in for a treat. So a few rushed phone calls later and we were on are way from Yeovil to Bristol, James unfortunately had to head home but Tim and Will soldiered on. When we arrived at the unknown location we were presented with an amazing array of drift machines, RX7s, S13s, a BMW chopped up pickup?!!? But more importantly – Brad Hacker’s RX8, fresh from its little trip to Dragon Performance.
Up close and in person this car is a work of art and truly a spectacle to behold – I’ve never even seen an RX8 converted for drift use on the Internet, let alone in the flesh!
Kyouto Drifter Lum: “We can remember Brad’s exact words when he first got the 8…… I’m going to tidy it up, paint it, get some wheels & keep everything else standard. It’ll make a nice tidy road car……..”
