Toyota Supra Drift Mod – Preview Video

Toyota Supra Drift Mod – Preview Video

Niels Heusinkveld is not just busy working as physics expert for Reiza Studios, fortunately he also found some time to work on a new rFactor mod project – The Toyota Supra Drift Mod.

The mod will feature a very powerful Toyota Supra drift car that is suited for drifting as you can see below. According to Niels, the project is making proper project and the mod may be out in the near future.

You can check out the car and his physics in the video as we get to watch Niels driving the beast. The video also features his professional high-torque steering wheel that made a first appearance in a recent Game Stock Car video.

    wow nice drifting! this is the first time I see someone really drifting in rFactor. Even that you’re a physics guru I still wonder how have you managed to tweak the tyres suitable for bigger slide angles??

  • Mike Cantwell

    Great video. I am really interested in that wheel. Are they hoses attached to it like power sterring hoses??

  • f12bwth

    More like massive wires. Its just a massive motor being controlled by Leo Bodnar’s FFB controller. Unfortunately I don’t think it works without special coding per sim. Still want to see it sold.

  • Niels Heusinkveld

    I haven’t πŸ™‚ The tires are just good road tires that would work reasonably well on normal street cars. Nothing was really changed for drifting. The car just has silly power and steering lock, and is quite ‘racey’ in the suspension.

  • Niels Pedersen

    Maybe it’s just me, but it almost looks like the car is driving itself… just “guiding” it in the right direction lol πŸ™‚

  • ADUBZ

    Just to clarify the mod is actually a group effort; http://rfactorcentral.com/detail.cfm?ID=Toyota%20Supra%20MKIV%20Drift

    Niels the physics guru has become the drift king LOL

  • Niels Heusinkveld

    Thats how it kinda works πŸ™‚ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6BfQhnbZ0Y for one of many examples.

  • Arie Beuker, de

    Racing and drifting don’t mix in the fact that when you drift, you lose speed.
    I cannot get used to something like drifting, nice for show, but not for racing.

    Great mod though.

  • Niels Heusinkveld

    Yup, I posted the video, didn’t realize virtualr would pick up on it, I’m just part of a group effort πŸ™‚

  • Justin ForzaBarΓ§a D’Cruze

    Very nice, triple screen must become even more useful with drifting given how much time you spend looking out the side windows πŸ˜‰

  • Hompe

    Cool! the minute i saw the biltema sticker in the windshield i thaught of Fredric Aasbo πŸ™‚

  • The Biff

    So they’ve given up on the reiza studios stock sim? 

  • Stefan Schuchardt

    Yes Niels is a good drifter.

  • Monk

    .
    Yes. He gave up everything in his life to create this little drift mod. I hope you enjoyed it.

  • Sensekhmet

    Yep. I’ve actually felt that sometimes, racing/driving in a game is more difficult than in real life, and this is definately true for drifting. Everyone that ever raced a car knows how natural it feels, you just go with the flow.

  • The Biff

    Too bad.  Stock looked good but this drifting mod looks pretty stupid to me. 

  • Silly(c)One

    That must be an expensive step motor !
    I was looking at small ones for racing cockpit motion control, and it’s not that easy to integrate like they did (also, can’t come in cheap !).
    I imagine Leo’s FFB controller doesn’t control power but only the direction signal ? I thought there would be some kind of universal driver for it… Only SDKs is a bit steep πŸ˜›
    Damn the motor is beautiful !

  • Sensekhmet

    Jeeeeesus Christ… *rolls eyes*

  • Explosive Face

    Wow.

  • ADUBZ

    Facepalm Moment!

  • Niels Heusinkveld

    Nah not really. I don’t use the handbrake to get those corner entry and in general don’t care about those techniques. I just get weight transfer from lifting / steering / scandinavian flicking and then floor it to keep it sideways.. πŸ™‚

  • Silly(c)One

    Yup, that’s priceless… I couldn’t believe it at first… the proof is in the pudding πŸ˜€

  • Blacker

    Incredibly true mate. It amazed me how many people claimed GTR2 had too much grip. I’ve driven an M3 challenge car that didn’t have the type of aero or suspension packages that an FIA GT car would have, and if anything the game has too little grip. That M3 Challenge car would just fly around the track, it was quite easy to get it to stick. Granted, still couldn’t just randomly nail the throttle with it, but either way, very well said.

  • Blacker

    C’mon man! Biff you’re killing us πŸ˜›
