Our friends at the GT Channel had the chance to talk with the Rockstar/AEM Scion tC drift team at the Formula D opener at The Streets of Long Beach. Everyone from team owner and acclaimed drag racer Steph Papadakis to the Scion tC’s pilot Tanner Foust had a chance to get a word in and show off their all new 700 HP V8 powered drift machine.

@ ericsolberg- well a v8 is quite heavy though, it’s not about heavy or light, it’s about control and how the driver test his skill to the limit to generate a lot of smoke clouds to win the crowds.

A v8 engine for drifting? Isn’t that difficult to control because front-end is heavy?
