Formula Drift Insider Episode 4 – The Daigo Saito Vs. JTP Conflict [VIDEO]

Finally after a post that escalated to 1,150+ Facebook Likes and 50 comments earlier this month on Wrecked Magazine has seen the light of day with a conflict. Sadly the Formula Drift Insider did some editing and skipping of the argument between Justin Pawlak, Daigo Saito (and translator Robbie Nishida) as Justin whines about what went down in the tandem battle with Daigo. Regardless it marked the first time he lost this season and clearly JTP wasn’t happy about it. The Achilles Team is really making a big scene this season in Formula Drift and we love it.

The Insider also highlights Chris Forsberg and his new setup with the Nissan 370z which brought him to his first podium of the 2012 season. Luckily he didn’t beat Justin Pawlak as well so no surprise visits in his section of the video. The segment does spend some time with the MA Motorsport guys who are now running his team from behind the scenes for a cool outlook on the NOS Energy Drink 370z.
