Network A Drift

Join us as we kick off our new Formula Drift interview series, #FDConfidential, by asking the best driver's on the circuit: Who's this season's wild card? The answers may (or may not) surprise you.

There aren't many things in the realm of cars that are foreign to Chris Forsberg. But lowriders and hydraulics are some of those things, so Forsberg decided to get an education in lowriders from one of the best shops in the country for just that on this new episode of Garage Tours.

In this episode Forsberg visits Miranda’s Custom Car shop in Phoenix, Arizona—a lowrider shop driven by the passionate mechanic Luis Miranda whose built a reputation for attention to detail and artistic paintwork. Luis’ affection and commitment to custom lowriders and the lowrider culture runs deep. Miranda handles every process of the vehicle’s fabrications from sourcing parts to engine fabrications, custom upholstery, paintwork, and of course, hydraulics.

Forsberg gets a tour of the yard where vehicles, including some long lean ’58 and ’59 Impalas, are waiting for their transformation. Inside we see works in progress and lowriders in the final stages of customization. And finally! Forsberg gets his first ride in slammed down to the ground lowrider.

In this new episode of Garage Tours, we turn the camera on two of the most popular drivers in Formula Drift: our host Chris Forsberg and fellow driver Ryan Tuerck, to get a look inside their mobile garages.

Forsberg takes us inside his 75-foot, two-story trailer complete with car and equipment storing capacity and indoor work stations. We also see the mobile work stations that keep these cars in prime competitive condition throughout the race weekend. Tuerck tours us through his 53-foot trailer and shows us how his crew stays on top of maintenance and repairs throughout the competition.

Only Ken Block would think of making a 1978 Ford Escort Mk2 RS with rear-wheel-drive his new Gymkhana car. And luckily for Ryan Tuerck, he gets to "test" it out.

On-hand for the upcoming Gymkhana Grid Finals in England, Tuerck gets to take Ken's first-ever rear-wheel-drive Gymkhana vehicle for a bit of a spin. Boasting all the bells and whistles of Ken's high-end, WRC Ford Fiesta, the Mk2 packs "a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder Millington motor that generates 333 naturally-aspirated horses and absolutely screams at the limit when stretched out to the 9,000 rpm redline. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox."

Stay tuned for more of Tuerck at the Gymkhana Grid soon.

In this episode of Garage Tours, Chris Forsberg visits Nameless Performance in Woodland, Washington. Nameless is one of the largest manufacturers of custom performance exhaust systems for the Subaru market. Jason Griffith gives Forsberg a tour of the manufacturing division including the fabrication room with a cutting room, welding stations and the final assembly area.

John Hoyenga then tours us through the Motorsports division, introducing Forsberg to the rally program and the new Formula Drift program. Nameless driver Ryan Tuerck pops in to talk about his relationship with Nameless and his 2015 Formula Drift FRS!

Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg takes us on a tour of garages around the country, from professional outfits to grassroots backyard garages.

On a brand new episode of Garage Tours, Chris Forsberg stops by Fast Intentions in Simi Valley, California. Specializing in exhaust systems and twin turbo kits, co-owners Dan Akre and Tony Meyerson walk Forsberg through the development and fabrication process of their artificially aspirated powerhouses, which include new prototypes for both the Lamborghini LP and Audi RAV 10 engines. After that, Forsberg jumps in the time machine for an under-the-hood look at a 1,000-horsepower 1978 Trans Am (which just so happens to boast a truly crazy 300-horsepower nitrous boost) before calling it a day with a spin in his personal twin-turbo Nissan 370Z.

It’s a brand new season of Drift Garage and Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck have cooked up something new. This year Forsberg is going to be gutting and upgrading a Nissan Titan. Chris needs a towing adventure mobile for all his other vehicles, so the Cummins-powered Titan XD is going to be a perfect project.

While Forsberg is busy with that, Tuerck is going to keep himself busy upgrading his Scion FRS. The Tuerck "street car" is getting another round of upgrades with a race engine, an anti-lag system, a bigger turbo, and of course, more power. Can't. Stop Modifying.

Fresh off the road, Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck take on diesel drifting, beginner mods, and a fistful of fan questions in the season 3 premiere of Drift Garage Response. From Chris's epic Nissan Titan XD tow rig to Tuerck's insane FR-S street car and beyond, these guys cover it all, so tune in and get yourself hyped to slay some tires.
