Takeshi Nakazato said that he prefers grip driving instead of a drift. I have 2 questions to ask

1. What is grip driving?

2. What does it do?

you got be kidding, the answer is obvious. Did you even watch the episode? Do you ever listen to them talk? Did you even see them race?

On first stage Itsuki Takeuchi & Kouichirou Iketani were working at the gas station then both street racers don't need a girlfriend. Are they really THAT desperate?

I'm just going to play devil's advocate here...

What if teknoman's asking these questions just to stimulate conversation of Initial D? That's the only explanation I can think of, since I think it's moot or even ludicrous to look into the series with that much detail and ask questions that can be answered fairly easily just by watching the anime and paying a decent amount of attention. To be frank, I'd much rather clarify any overlooked details that an Initial D fan might not've understood or missed than spending 6+ pages or however long those multiple previous threads were about FF drifting, or impossibility thereof.

Just my $0.02, and a POSSIBLE explanation to some of these questions. If I'm wrong, my only other explanation is that teknoman is a narcoleptic, and just falls asleep all the time while watching animes.

Holy shit narcoleptics are really like that? I thought what I saw in movies was just some exaggeration. That's really wierd, but kinda funny.

Question:

What are the pros and cons for rotary engines?

This should be a bit legitimate since I never saw the whole series but I did see most of it, yet I still can't tell the difference other then some turbine stuff and the noise.

more Pros:

Easy to tune, and cheap (compared to other engines). Just make sure it has fuelling.
Small size
Sounds cool

Cons:
It uses even more fuel if tuned
Engines need rebuilding more often than pistons as the rotor tips wear

i dont know were your from, but were Iam from its a little difficult to find a mechanic that will fix a rotary engine and actually know what your doing. If i ever owned a car with a rotary, I whouldn't take my car to just anyone it whould have to be someone i knew and trust(which is almost impossible to find down here for rotarys)
