3rd- Nissan Nismo 370Z
4th- Lexus ISF

I know it is cool. I just needed to put a word beginning with an 'R'.

Surprised that the IS-F is up there with no LSD

i thought that too. they didn't even mention the LSD once in the part where they talk about the ISF. they complained about it not having a rev limiter and instead has a fuel cutoff when you get the rpm to high it goes into safety mode and cuts the fuel

yeah the hanbrake and foot brake was the only thing that set back the Nizmo

i was suprised to read that the stickier tire the better for drifting. also the Yoko ADVAN Neova ADO8 that was used on all the cars got awesome remarks from them and i know some members on here use them. i think that is what i am gonna get for mine after the winter instead of the Michelins PS2expensives that came with my car
