Buick Special

Old school Team Shmo followers remember the epic GT5 Buick Special that I made back in that game well now it’s time to make it for GT6. The Buick Special drifted amazing before and it does not disappoint now. GT6 made drifting a little weird compared to how it was in GT5, but I still find this car pretty fun. It is just as insane and crazy as ever only you definitely have to watch it a bit more. The best way to drift is to pulse the gas only adding more gas when you need it. Don’t slam it down or you will spin out due to all the power. I added a spoiler to mine for looks and matched the color to the top of the car. I added custom rims and matched their color to the side of the car. If you look close there is a orange or red pin stripe going down the side of the car which I painted the brakes to match. I am liking the looks a lot now, but the stance is what makes it epic. Such a huge slope towards the back and it looks awesome on the replays.

    It’s cool, but it’s almost cliche these days… Sad

    • In gt5 it was a huge points scorer. Gt6 it’s still good but not as legendary as before. Had to do it tho

        98 Mitsubishi Vr4 TT gets 913bhp and 744 ft. Lb. of torque. A possible race tune candidate? It’s AWD…

        • That is a lot of power. It might be a good one.

            Indeed. I discovered it by accident. It would crush an Evo though. Lots of body roll unfortunately
