This sport is going across the world faster than wildfire for popularity. I've had a chance to work with some of these guys. Very talented!

Its a shade of metallic black pearl. As for the exact color, im not sure. What I do know is that it was painted using: BASF paint products.

I also would suggest contacting the painters whom paint his mustang.

It's powered by a Boss 302R crate engine with the 6spd 302R tranny and as it's coupled with Kinsler Individual Throttle Body injection, as well as a MoTeC M800 as the ECU of choice. He has Bosch Ev14 72lb fuel injectors along with a Bosch 044 fuel pump. He's got the FR500s mufflers for exhaust. Using all K&N filters. And lastly uses a Griffin radiator and heat exchanger.

Thats the heart of the big stuff anyways underneath the hood.

What's not to love about that car it? It is Way COOL. It is a purposely built car so it was built to drift not hookup on a drag strip Or put in the fastest Lap on a Road course.
I have always wondered just how a drift car would do in a all out Road race as going sideways around a corner is not going to get you around a track with the fastest time. I like to watch drifting and I am sure it is a ton of fun. (And requires great car control) But I feel Formula Drift is the WWE of auto sports (along with Monster truck racing) It's not a race when you get Style points? For me it is about the guy that crosses the finish line First Wins. But that is one Cool car.
