Flipping heck.

Anyone who says drifting is bad for 300's needs to look through this and see the skills being used. Great job. Those engine mounts look really nicely fabricated, but the standout thing for me is something tiny.

So many 300's I've now seen with adjustable top mounts look like they have been fitted with a cold chisel. The photo of yours mounted make them look like a factory car. Great job.
