Through my years as a Speedhunter I’ve been through a lot of topics and discussions with you lot.
We’ve gone through the ups and downs of drifting, car setup, judging, ice racing, die-hard competition, Gatebil fun times and everything in between. It’s been a great journey and I’ve been lucky to have been able to share it with you.
Sneak Peek- A look Inside Mad Mike Whiddett’s Radbul MX-5
by Mike Kojima
A few weeks ago we were fortunate enough to get a close look at the car that we think is perhaps the most radical and innovative drift car ever built, Mad Mike Whiddett’s Radbul Mazda MX-5. After a 5 year absence, Mad Mike is back on the US drift scene with a car built for today’s exceedingly competitive Formula D environment.
The Radbul is out to break many suppositions about how a drift car is supposed to be and shows great promise. The Radbul is different from other cars in many aspects from its size, power plant, power level and weight distribution.
In it’s first US events the car has shown plenty of promise. New car blues have given many well established FD team fits and although it’s clear that the Radbul is not fully dialed in yet, it has shown hints that it will be perhaps the deadliest drift car ever built once it has some development time.
What do we find so fascinating about the Radbul, well lets check it out.
