Pinnacle of Charm – James Deane’s Worthouse Drift / Falken Tire Nissan S15


Deane’s office consists of a fully revised interior, stripped down to its bare chassis to be painted and caged for FD spec safety. The dash was custom upholstered with an anti-glare shot coating, ensuring that Deane’s view is not compromised even as the sun draws lower in the evening battles.


Moving lower, placement of his feet against the right-hand drive pedal set is assured via a custom, carbon fiber foot tray. It has a few well-placed strips of grip tape, showing that even the little things were addressed in the build. The clutch is an ACT race triple-plate metal disc model with a lightweight flywheel, able to adroitly manage the massive torque sent its way.


An alcantara-wrapped Sparco steering wheel guides the way, alongside custom billet shift knob and handbrake levers, the perfect combination of grip in his mitts.


And of course, the steering column wouldn’t be complete without a slick NRG quick release Gen 3.0 hub.


CNC-machined billet aluminum makes for an awfully detailed drift brake handle. The open channels are eerily similar to a set of brass knuckles, a warning that this machine is ready to throw down. The shift knob links to a Quaife QBE69G 6-speed dog shifted manual transmission, two more gears than most Formula D drivers tend to run. However, unlike those H-pattern dog boxes, this transmission is sequential, offering the ability to flat shift with nearly no loss in power during changes, giving Deane the ability to pound through the gears, his S15 unwavering through a long sweeper.
