At some point, drifting made the shift from counterculture revolution to the sponsor-laden vehicular equivalent of figure skating. We're not sure when it happened, but we certainly miss the days of watching grainy videos of mountain pass heroes piped over from Japan. The Bloodmasters crew seem to get where we're coming from. The guys just turned out a new video showing what happens when the crew gets together for a little fun at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey. Let's just say there isn't a single booty-short wearing energy drink peddler or tube-chassis manufacturer vehicle in sight.

Instead, we're treated to some good old-fashioned fender bashing and tire shredding orchestrated under a mighty fine soundtrack. These guys are the kind of crazy that brought drifting across the Pacific in the first place, and from their ludicrous camera angles and similarly insane sideways antics, it looks like they're having considerably more fun than the Formula D crowd. We love that they don't seem to care how many dings and dents their Nissan 240SX coupes get, and they don't seem bothered by a few missing body panels, either. The whole film is well-shot, with portions looking downright Mad Max-like. Hit the jump to check it out.

      "it looks like they're having considerably more fun than the Formula D crowd" while i appreciate much of what you said, this made me facepalm. ryan tuerck and chris forsberg are professional drivers, and tony angelo is one of the three judges. (not counting the drivers from Formula D ProAm) also, slight misunderstanding about their cars.. "We love that they don't seem to care how many dings and dents their Nissan 240SX coupes get..." they don't seem to care because they don't. these cars (or most of them) were purpose-built to be destroyed in drifting. (they're referred to as "missile cars"). so it isn't much to say that they don't care about bashing these cars because all of them have separate practice and/or competition drift cars that they would hate to damage.

      "...tube-chassis manufacturer vehicle in sight." What? None of the cars in Formula D OR D1GP are tubed chassis cars. Every car used in both series has a factory chassis along with some strengthening in order to take the forces that these cars give out. If you're talking about the tC drift cars, those weren't tubed chassis either. The tC is based on an AWD chassis, which goes along with the rules of Formula D. Therefore, all that needed to be done was just a conversion to RWD.
