Drift Mini Truck


I see a new platform creeping into the Drift scene these days. Mini Trucks. Those that remember the 80's mini truck days will associate air bags and hydraulics beds with 20 subs and custom mural paint schemes. What some Japanese tuners are doing is full frame replacement and rear suspension conversions to independent sus and strut coilovers. Why go through the hassle of doing all that welding to achieve the same drop as compair to air bags..? Well, these mini-track trucks are full race drift machines. Check out these sick little 1 ton mini trucks tearing up the track.

Notice this truck with a full RB26 Skyline motor carefully swapped into the bay. With an upgraded single turbo at that size, you know that's all business. In the rear bed you will see the extensive custom work from the rear mounted radiator to fuel tank. But what is most striking is the custom coilover setup and frame design that integrates directly with the coll cage. All business.

Personally I would like to see the Drift scene flooded with different makes and models from old school to modern platform. BTW, did you notice the first image to have a California plate..

The mini trucks with the air bags and the hydraulics became very popular in the 80's. There were different models and UVs to satisfy the users.
