Driver profile #32 Zachary Klares

Name:Zachary Klares



Years Drifting: 4

Vehicle of Choice:1990 240sx

Why: when i was 14 i would watch all the local kids rice out there cars and go racing, i wanted a car that had decent stock stats and was affordable originally i wanted to just street race, i juggled between a probe a 240sx and a prelude. then one day i saw a d1 video online and tried to figure out what it was, i then found a link to initial d and from there i was in love w/ the 240sx. I got a job and worked to buy my first car an s14 and since then i have owned over a dozen, i love the s chassis, its the most versatile, i like both s13 and 14 but both have different characteristics. the 14 is more planted and stable more solid smooth drifting, the 13 is crazy and all over the place, more my style, i love more angle than anything.
