You guys should look into using GTA races as a sandbox for drfting longer swooping turns. Using the boosts in and out of a drift take your slide to the next level.

                                 KARIN FUTO GT               

Is based off of the Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno Apex Coupe with some cues from the Nissan Skyline R30, the Futo is a fun, fast and grippy car, great for racing or drifting your friends or as a quick getaway car.

It is fun to drift around if you get a hang of it. (which all the FUTO DRIFT MASTERS crew members have)

The down side is that it can not take much damage before the engine inevitably dies, or the car explodes.(thats if you are stone broke and cannot afford armour) LOL :panic:  

You will want to armor as it has very low resistance against any sort of gunfire . :sui:

The Karin Futo GT comes with a vast number of modifications, ranging from a reference to Initial D with the Fujiwara rims, to a lean roaring racing machine with turbo. (as we all know what that is like)  :colgate:

It can usually be found around Rockford Hills, Del Perro beach, or at and around Chamberlain Hills, around Franklin's second safehouse, and sometimes around the Maze Bank Tower.

Many of the abandoned/junked/up-on-blocks cars you find in the single-player game are Futos. These examples, of course, are static and can't be entered and taken.  :(

Below are some real life versions of the Futo GT (Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno coupe) 

                              

The Futo is considered a tuners car, as it visual can be highly modified (body kit, spoiler, hood, wheels, roof lip), as well as the perfomance of it.

Performance  :D

The Futo is powered by a naturally-aspirated, high revving 1.4-litre inline-4 engine, with five valves per cylinder and a five-speed manual gearbox in a rear-wheel drive configuration. Acceleration is this car's party piece, getting to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds. The top speed is astonishing for a car of this stature, achieving 165 mph (265 km/h). The chassis is firm and taut, giving the Futo stability at high speeds. The suspension is firm but not too firm, keeping the Futo flat in banked corners and stable in the S-curves, while still giving a firm, yet enjoyable ride.

Couple the excellent suspension setup with the short wheelbase and you get a fantastically chuckable little pocket rocket,or as the father of dirft Keiichi Tsuchiya   called his  "The Little Hachi that could." capable of competing with full-on sports cars. The brakes are sensitive and effective, and front-wheel lock-up is not a big issue compared to other vehicles; however, ABS is not available and so a little finesse will be needed with the brake to stop lockup. Due to no ABS braking can be extremely dangerous in the rain. The Futo handles well off-road and can reach about 75% of its top speed on dirt roads and beaches, and grip is impressive even with rear wheel drive, while others of the same drive may fishtail easily. Crash deformation is above average, though build quality is sub-par, often leaving the Futo disabled after just a few accidents. Again if u dont buy armour HA HA HA HA HA  :p

All in all the Futo GT is great fun to drive, and drift and makes an excellent escape or pursuit vehicle in missions. :ph34r:  And of course the best drift car in GTA V. It is also an ideal car to drift since it is a light weight, front engine rear wheel drive car and is a very easy car to be put into one. The only possible disadvantages during a pursuit or escape is that the vehicle is small, lacking the power to move other vehicles, and only has two doors, rather than four.

A popular color scheme for the AE86 was black bumpers, spoiler, wheel (excluding the outer rim), and a black carbon fiber hood, with everything else white. The player can get a Futo GT and respray it until it has that color scheme. It bears a resemblance to a Sprinter TRUENO

Modifications (GTA V)

The Futo is a highly modifiable car and has all the standard performance modifications, plus:

  • Bumpers (3 front, 2 rear, and an wide-arch kit)
  • Sideskirts (Also adds "Inline 20V" badging under the right rear light) (1 option)
  • Spoilers (4 options)
  • Grille (one with logo, and one without that is also very slightly darker, and there is an option to have no grill.)
  • Roof (Roof Lip Spoiler)

SPAWN LOCATIONS

GTA V

  • Sometimes found driving in traffic around Rockford Hills.
  • Spawn more commonly when driving a Rumpo.

GTA Online

  • Sometimes found driving in traffic around Rockford Hills.
  • Sometimes found in or around Los Santos International Airport.
  • While driving a Fusilade or another 2-door car, It may spawn near the Gas-station near the overpass east of L.S Customs.

Well it's been another successful weekend of throwing the little Futo around the place, and she loves it. Met a lot of really nice and down to earth people, some for the first time and other's who are regular's at our meet's.  Had hour's and hour's of continuous fun and drifting. It's been a blast and thing's will only get better. Since the crew was started back in January it has grown from strength to strength and keep's on growing day by day. From just a few player's 3 months ago we are heading on for 200 now and i expect that to just keep growing. Some people think "it's just a game" but to the crew and people who play it's is a place to meet other people who love drifting and Rockstar Games :r*:  homage to the Toyota Corolla Levin AE86 GT-Apex Coupe. When i bought Grand Theft Auto V back in September i didn't think for a second i would be sitting here writing a little blog on GTAforums about it 7 month's later, but here i am.  Exciting times are ahead for the FUTO DRIFT MASTERS, With 3 social media outlet's (Facebook, gtaforums.com, Rockstar Games Social Club) i think we are the most easily reachable drift crew, or any crew at that, and there is to date 1,452,989 crews and we are sitting at 179,356. Considering up to 10 million people play dis game i think we are doing pretty good. The number one crew IGN has 738,300 member's, so for our small little Futo family of 188 I think we are doing dam good. There is plan's in the pipeline for a 4th media outlet and that will only concrete our place as the best Futo drift crew on the planet.     :cool:      FUTO4LIFE
