Did anybody else catch the show on drifting on TLC last night? They had a modified 04 GTO. Cool stuff. They boosted the HP to 470 and had some suspension/brake mods as well. Out of 32 competitors, the GTO made it to the 2nd round of 16. Not bad for a first showing. I think the GTO definitely has a future in motorsports. Only time will tell......look forward to seeing what lies ahead for the Goat!!! :cool

Is drifting really a motor sport?

Is drifting really a sport? If it is, I guess I don't get it ...just like I don't get monster truck racing.

It's really just a pavement versus rubber friction test. I thought it was just cool to see the GTO just burnin up some rubber!!! :cool

I think it would be extremely cool to do - I mean to be the one in the driver's seat. I'd LOVE to pull my GTO up to the garage like that one Pontiac commercial.

But as a sport... umm, sort of on the same level as synchronized swimming. [Where did you get that smily face with the "hand" action Grocho?]
