WARNIING: Inhaling tire shredding smoke isn't good for your lungs.
This week on the Drive Channel's Tuned series, host Matt Farah heads to the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving to drive an 800 horsepower Nissan 350Z drift car. Owned by Formula Drift driver Corey Hosford, this tire shredding machine is downright bonkers. Powered by a supercharged LS3 V8, it weighs only around 2,800 lbs. Calling it fast is simply one way to describe it. After nailing the car's owner in the balls with the driver's side door, Farah gets some practice time on the skidpad before hitting the track.
But the big question here is what makes a car a drift car over a regular track car? A full explanation is given in the following video. And yes, get ready for some serious tire smoking.
