Formula D New Jersey 2016 Pit Walk

21 things you couldn't see on the Formula D New Jersey Livestream

Jun 29, 2016

If you've ever experienced a round of Formula DRIFT in person, there's a lot more that goes on than what you can see on their Livestream — for example, the action in the pits. You'll have opportunities to meet the drivers, get up close and personal with your favorite cars, and also pick up some free swag. In addition, you can always guarantee a good amount of vendor and display cars to keep you entertained.

I had a 90-minute break before the Top 16 started for Formula D Jersey at Wall Speedway, so I grabbed my camera and walked the pits to show y'all 21 things that you missed. Enjoy!

1. This EVO was one of the main reasons why I flew out to New Jersey/New York in the first place. Owned by Nawshin Basher, it was recently rebuilt to stun the East Coast scene. At FD it was front and center at the Ravspec booth as enthusiasts of all types appreciated the build for its functional aero, but also big power. It wears Voltex gear all-around, along with a carbon-fiber roof and 18x11-inch TE37V Mark II wheels. Under the hood is a built motor mated to a Sheepeybuilt twin-scroll, forward facing design manifold and Precision turbo. The bay is also one of the cleanest we've seen from an EVO. We'll have a full feature on Nawshin's car, so stay tuned!

2. Have you met this year's Nitto girls? They're also all official Super Street models - Constance Nunes, Courtney Riggs (feature coming soon), and this year's Miss Super Street, Janey B.

3. Nothing like some nice Volk Racing wheel porn courtesy of Ravspec.

4. We're diggin' this clean '02 Acura NSX that's supercharged via a Comptech blower and rolls on new Gram Lights 57 Transcend wheels.

5. If you haven't been in the scene for a long time, then this Mazda RX-7 will probably trip you out a little bit. The front-end conversion comes from RE-Amemiya of Japan and it actually uses headlights from the Porsche 993 (previous examples here and here). The whole body kit isn't offered anymore and I was told it took the owner several months to piece it together, not to mention it didn't fit perfectly, so the body shop needed months to finish it. Matched with Yokohama RS-DF Progressive wheels, this is easily one of the coolest FDs we've seen in recent times!

6. What's a Formula D round without sexy umbrella girls?!

7. This AP2 S2000 feels more like a West Coast build than something we'd find in NJ/NY. It's got nothing but Spoon goodies, including the front bumper, mirrors and a whole bunch of engine and suspension upgrades. The custom Regamaster EVO wheels seem to fit right at home as well. Full feature coming soon.

10. Air Lift Performance showing attendees that they have air suspension for all types of cars from hardcore show to luxury VIP, like this Lexus on Wald Duchatelet wheels.

11. Rauh-Welt Begriff builds might be a little whored out, but these Porsches are still a beauty to see in person. This 911, nicknamed "Prince", had a crowd around it constantly, and of course, it's dumped on Air Lift suspension.

12. This Subaru STI might be a little controversial with its red-on-red theme, rocking Work M.C.O Racing Type CS wheels, as well as its use of air ride suspension. The stance kids will love it, but the purists might be cringing...

13. Still on our bucket list of dream cars is the R34 Nissan Skyline. This one was built to boogie in the Exedy booth.

14. The East Coast is still bigger in drag racing than us here on the West, as demonstrated by Procom Racing of New Jersey and its beast of a Subaru STI nicknamed "Gretta."

15. We stopped by Sikky Manufacturing and people were buying these rad hydraulic pull-up handbrakes right off their display case.

18. Nicholas Reginato's Nissan 300ZX is still a work-in-progress, but folks were still diggin' his RB25DET swap.

19. The infamous Viper-powered, turbocharged Toyota Supra from Speed WarHouse. Beast!

20. We dropped by to visit local drift crew, Faction Motorsports, and their S13 that sees plenty of sideways action.

21. Geoff Stoneback is one the more popular drivers in Formula D with his new 370Z build. Since his home is only a couple of hours away in Pennsylvania, he also brought out his personal S15 Silvia, which you'll be seeing more of in an upcoming issue.
