On the latest episode of Drift Garage, Formula Drift drivers Chris Forsberg (who's British accent is alive and well) and Ryan Tuerck continue their quest to build a missile car (aka a beater drift car) for under $5,000.
Forsberg and Tuerck straighten out the frame and rip out the interior with the help of some dry ice, which if you're under 18 you might need your parents to buy for you along with your porn. But most importantly Forsberg and Tuerck swap out the old, shitty motor with a newer, less shitty, factory 240 SX KA 24DE-T engine and add some horsepower with an Isis Turbo Kit—the most cost effective way to add horsepower to your drift car.
The two drift drivers also provide a ton of pro tips in this one. The one that everyone should commit to memory is that when you're tired of working on your own missile car go steal your friend's. Forsberg and Tuerck are lucky enough to be friends with Vaughn Gittin Jr. so that makes things more fun.
After completing their new car builds in season 2 of Drift Garage, Chris Forsberg lines up his 240SX missile against Ryan Tuerck’s recently upgraded rocket, facing off in a no-holds-barred battle of barrel taps, drift limbo, and double-dare drift in a wild Game of DRIFT rematch. The first driver to spell DRIFT gets smoked like a set of brand new tires, so make sure to stay tuned for part 2—which drops tomorrow, Friday, June 26—to see who earns the bragging rights.

It's time for Part 2 of Ryan Tuerck's World Tour Of Drifting. On this new episode of Tuerck'd, Tuerck meets up with the Fail Crew at Laitse Rally Park in Estonia for the Drift Allstars GP. The Fail Crew hook Tuerck up with a loaner S13 for the competition which Tuerck finesses through the qualifying rounds all the way to an insane finals showdown against Harold Valdma! Wonder if Tuerck or Harold will take the victory...
We also get a look at an epic custom BMW 6 series with dual turbo and 600HP. Next stop is Latvia but not before a run in with the local law enforcement—as they say, “Hey! It is not a problem.” Tuerck makes the absolute most of the opportunity at Riga, laying down pristine first tracks, the Fail Crew joins in, and all ends well in this Eastern European saga that was Ryan Tuerck's World Tour Of Drifting!
Got questions or comments about Tuerck’s Drift Allstars experience? That S13? The BMW 6 series build? Those Estonian women? You can hit Ryan up in the comments below or at #Tuerckd on twitter and he just might respond to you in next week’s Burnout Response video!
While the toilets may flush counter-clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere, Ryan Tuerck is still comfortable spinning it every way imaginable. In the latest episode of Tuerck'd he hosts an off-the-rails Australian Matsuri event along with Drift Challenge Australia and Raleigh Raceway in New South Wales. Tuerck gets behind the wheel of an R31 Nissan Skyline Missile car, Tuercking it in record time before taking the wheel of some killer local cars–including a Corolla with a Beam's turbocharged ae86 and an Aussie-only 2010 Holden UTE VE SS. After hosting a hard-fought Table Game, Tuerck revives the Skyline for a final funeral lap, bringing a hoon-worthy weekend of down-under destruction to a fittingly insane end.

Formula Drift driver Ryan Tuerck headed up to Portland, Oregon, to have the guys at Portland Speed Industries run some off-season modifications on his Retaks/Maxxis Tire Scion 2JZ FR-S. They added a new Garrett GT 4088 turbo that tuned the Scion to the sound of 830 horsepower. With that kind of power, Tuerck went in search of the ultimate road to test out his new ride and found an epic hill climb on this season finale of Tuerck'd. After ascending the windy road, Tuerck decided to come back down in tandem with fellow Formula Drift driver Rob Primo. This is so good.

Sean Geiser tours Forsberg through the truck design and fabrication garage where trucks are built from the ground up. We get a look at the CNC shop, the chassis build area as well as a brilliant rotisserie welding station. Sean shares the backstory on Geiser’s custom suspensions, a key component in off road truck racing. Geiser also features a maintenance shop for keeping all race trucks in prime race condition including the 2015 winning Baja 500 truck.
