I recently decided to build some drift missiles(battered cars used for practice drifting). It was a fun little project, and I’m happy how they came out.

This Datsun 620 drift missile has an LS V8 stuffed in it. Also the suspension has been lowered and cambered and a fuel cell was mounted in the bed.

After buying a totaled pro drift car, a cheap replacement shell was found, salvageable parts were swapped over, and the rest was scrounged. And a missile car was born.

Despite taking some hard hits, this drift missile is still tearing up the track.
