    Default Awesomely bad idea, the 6-speed Q45

    Stop now if you're only interest is in VIP builds or have some kind of emotional attachment to G50 Q45s in general.

    This is a "VIP chassis" drift build.

    so when I catch a curb a 3am I can just throw on a spare without caring and they have a pretty decent specs too

    thanks Joe! it'll be out at the next even but realistically it'll probably still be auto and going home on a flat bed with a blown tranny and then back for April with clutch kicks LOL

    G/l on your build...the wheels, I dont get it. Cuz the tires you put on will prob be worth more then your wheels and so imo should have gone into something nicer (used even), and kept the stocks to floss around in..but it is your build and i hope you can pull it off.

    The wheels serve a purpose....but that purpose isn't VIP! Those are late night curb humpers.... This should be sweet drift car when done.

    Should be interesting to see where this goes...obviously he's not making your "standard" vip-mobile, he even stated it in his original post. So don't be Richard Simmons in his thread...haha.

    Desoto as in Ft. Desoto? I remember my brother's friend mention something about that place late nights. Good luck on your build. Good to see another local on here.

    If you stay on the entrance road and go down almost the full length of the drag strip there is a banked oval with secondary oval and x inside. There has been events every month for the past year or so, $20 per car and $10 per driver/spectator but usually no concessions or tire changer. Its always a good time

    Yup, usually just stop at the grocery store a block or two off the highway and pick up food and drinks. Also bring a couple of sets of rims and tires and your set for a days worth of fun....
