There's a growing RC community for drifters in many areas of the U.S., but it's been huge in Japan - the birthplace of drifting - for years. In fact, many say that it's just as - or more - popular than racing! Even with the IFMAR Worlds Warm-Up going on at Yatabe Arena last weekend, sideways sliding fantatics flocked to the famed facility to burn laps and hit clipping points.
The train of incredibly detailed cars navigating the course drew the attention of IFMAR World Champions Jared Tebo - who grabbed his smartphone to shoot a short Instagram video - and Ryan Cavalieri, who decided he wanted to give it a shot.
Unfortunately for Ryan, his attempt behind the wheel of someone else's car didn't go so well.
