    I've made quite a few threads about those vans. It's a japanese cult known as "vanning".

    Yeah, I have a drift vid, that has a section on "vanning". They show like 100 different vans. They put a lot of hardwork into them. It's not supposed to be the height of style, it's supposed to be like a fantasy vehicle. ;)

    The principal of a Hummer is that's your above everyone else in a slow, thirsy V12. Now you are just one of the two.

    I like the hummer, maybe it will handle more like a sports car, and less like a tank. That wooden F50 is in the Venetian Casino in Vegas.;)

    Vanning is hilarious. My friends and I are seriously considering getting a Toyota van, they're so cheap, and "Vanning" it out. We'd probably be the first people in the US to do it. In addition, our real goal is to put a better engine and suspension in it (they're already F/R), and than enter and make a mockery out of a drift competetion.

    Perhaps understeer might count as drifting- slipping out the front end?

    I do that all the time with my Jetta GLI. It's not drifting, by my definition, but it's fun, and helps me get around hairpins easier. ;)

    Hey Ultrabeat, just for your info:

    The lowrider H2, as well as the old Hummer, never came with a V12. They come with a General Motors Diesel V-8 or V-10, couldn't remember which.

    Like I said, though, the Toyota Van is rear wheel drive. The plan is to swap in a manual and a 2JZ. It will be unwieldy, but it will be driftable.

    This car is completely stock. I know it's an ugly car, but it has nothing to do with any modifications.

    I have always said that european "tuning"... or the way to call rice over there, has always been WAY worse than american rice. over there, if you dont have a stupidly ugly fiberglass work in thw hole car, you dont have a car. sad, all of those.

    True, but true european styling (understated, not rice), is a beautiful thing. ;)
