Muscle Cars Drift Battle by NotoAyako Muscle Cars Drift Battle by NotoAyako
American vs Australian, or maybe this is just an old battle between Ford and GM, or Holden to be more exact, depends to how everyone sees it. :iconyuitwirlplz:

I gotta admit that the Mustang the most difficult car I've ever worked on so far. No wonder it takes me months to finish, despite of my recent vacation to Kediri, of course. :iconiceuplz:

This artwork is mainly designed for my dear friend :iconcamaro1: and that's the 2D version of her behind the wheel. She actually wanted a Dodge Challenger but since the Mustang is all I get, I decided to just proceed with this car. As for the modification, it's done based on ~jmig3's design, of course with several changes to lower the level of difficulties. Perhaps the most notable change is the conversion of the Mustang to RHD. Yup, this mustang is actually based on Performax International's GT500 so credit mainly goes to them. :iconyuinodplz:
As everyone has known, Performax International is one of several garages licensed to perform RHD conversion in Aussie. The only unfortunate thing about the conversion is, it increases the price of the cars to about three times their original prices. :iconyuihuhplz:

The artwork itself is supposed to depict a tandem battle in Formula D Asia Series, Jakarta Round. That's why the two cars have Indonesian license plate; The Mustang has Jakarta license plate -on it's windshield- while the Monaro has Bogor license plate. The license plate on the Mustang can be read as "BEASTY", it is possible to get readable license plate in Indonesia as long as you don't mind the extra fees. :iconyuiyumplz:

Anyway, I think I still need some improvements on this artwork so constructive critics and suggestions are highly appreciated. :iconyuisheepishplz:

Then I suppose in this case our friend ~jmig3 has the most contribution. The mustang is modified based on his concept anyway. :iconsokyutplz:

I don't quite remember every details, but I guess you can see the complete list of the modification done on the mustang here. :iconkyutwinkplz:

It's still quite different though. His mustang is based on original GT500 while mine is based on Performax Auto's GT500, which explains the RHD configuration. :iconpachuuplz:

There are... The first one is the original car, Holden VZ Monaro. This is the car which the Vauxhall Monaro VXR and Pontiac GTO are based on. The second one is Chevrolet Lumina, I don't know much about this car aside than that this car is sold in UAE and South Africa. :iconkyokokyutplz:

I don't know... Lumina is basically a rebadged Holden Monaro, too. Just like how the sales of GTO ended with the production of Monaro. Perhaps Lumina is no longer manufactured by now. :iconpachuuplz:

Well, in the US, they stopped making the Lumina in the 90s.

I didn't know that. All I know is that GM used to sold VZ Monaro as Lumina like in South Africa and some other regions. Kind of unfortunate to hear, especially since I don't know much about this one car. :iconmisakisighplz:

Sorry about that ^^;


I heard Ford killed the Falcon and will stop production of the national models :( Now I won't have the chance to see one of those awesome FPV's with those inline-6 Barra turbo engines and great V8's :iconcryforeverplz:

They should export the Falcon platform, big RWD sedans are becoming rare in some brands...:|

:iconnotoayako:
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No... no... That's okay. I thought the same way of my dad as well. He's owned many different cars before when he was young while for me, my RX-8 is my first car. :iconkyokokyutplz:

I've never heard about that plan of Ford to kill the Falcons. They're still produced until this moment. Even in the recent models we can see some improvements such as projector headlights and new supercharged engine for Falcon GT. Though we can say in many aspects that FPV's are still left behind. *you know what I mean* :iconohoho-plz:

Big RWD sedans... I think it's not that rare. You can see them in Lexus and Toyota luxury sedans, such as Mark-X and IS-F, not to mention BMW 5 series. :iconrightneplz:

Here: [link] Unfair...very unfair. :iconlazycryplz:


You're correct about other models, but at least for Ford...it's becoming rare. :hmm: And even for GM as well...although they still have the Holden models...hopefully they won't kill the Australian division of the brand.

:iconnotoayako:
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I'm quite a big fan of rotary engines. That's why I chose RX-8 as my daily driver as well as drift car, especially since it's easier to get RX-8 here due to the low population of RX-7. :iconyukkolikeniplz:

What the...? The news says not only Falcons that will cease of production but also the business of Ford Motor Australia... :iconyuukoshockniplz:

This will end the nearly a century of Ford Motor Australia's history and therefore make Holden the only Australian car brand, just what the heck those people in Ford Motor Company are thinking...? :iconyukkorageniplz:

Yeah...they're a bunch of assholes :( They talk about "globalization"...WTF, killing the Falcons like that...WHY DON'T SELL THEM TO THE WORLD? THERE'S YOUR GLOBALIZATION! :icondarkrageplz:


And Ford would have a new model to fight the incoming and Holden-based, 2014 Chevrolet SS. :iconhappy-plz:

NotoAyako Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Kind of ironic in my opinion. Ford has already done well in their home country US while GM somehow become despised a little bit for their action in killing good-selling models. While in Australia it seems to be the contrary, GM does well in selling Holden cars while Ford had difficulties in keeping up with GM. :iconkyutnomplz:

I don't get what they think about anymore, they say it's due to global recession or something. But closing their business like that makes more than 1200 people lose their jobs and therefore worsening the situation. :iconheadnoplz:

yup, seperti yang kamu bicarakan, itu model Ford Shelby GT500 (versi lain dari Mustang GT), yang lumayan mudah untuk di drift, tapi kalo pake Challenger susah deh... (mobil itu terlalu berat, sekitar 4 ribu lbs lebih)

Semoga aja kedua mobil itu masuk ke Indo (jangan seperti Honda, soalnya mereka gak masukin S2000, Integra, ama NSX ke Indo)

Bagus kok gambarnya...

:iconnotoayako:
NotoAyako Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmm... begitu toh... Saya tau kalo Challenger itu terlalu berat untuk ukuran Muscle Car, tapi engga nyangka kalau sampai seberat itu. Harus diet ketat nih supaya bisa diajak drifting... :iconyukkothinkingniplz:

Kayaknya susah deh untuk mobil2 ini masuk ke Indonesia. Mungkin untuk Monaro bisa (buktinya pernah punya di rumah), tapi kalo untuk Mustang mungkin nantinya bisa kayak Camaro yang masuk sini, dari harga 300-500 juta di US jadi 2 milyar setelah masuk Indonesia. :iconyukkopifniplz:

Malah kalau saya pikir masih lebih gampang dapetin S2000 atau Integra di Indonesia, toh itu kan kerjaannya importir umum. Cuma kalau NSX emang susah sih karena itu aslinya emang mobil langka, bahkan di negeri asalnya polulasinya juga cuma sedikit. :iconyukkoconfuseniplz:

Makasih ya untuk penilaian positifnya. Mudah2an nanti bisa bikin yang lebih bagus deh... :iconyukkoganbatteniplz:

Kalo GT500 cuma 1.787 kg, hampir sama dengan Nissan GT-R (R35).
Tapi kalo ama Challenger, beratnya 1.892 kg, hampir sama dengan Mitsubishi Pajero Sport lho, jadi Challenger bisa dibilang mustahil di drift jika mobilnya masih stock (kalo dibandingkan ama GT500), kecuali kalo beratnya dikurangi (alias diet)...

Memang sih mudah S2000 dan ITR mudah diimport ke Indo, tpi sekarang sudah gak diproduksi lagi, tapi kalo CTR (Civic type-R) masih diproduksi Honda, trus aku malah pernah lihat mobilnya di Palembang... (versi Mugen lengkap dengan bodykit, warna hitam)

Ohya, ngomong2 aku dengar rumor kalo Honda bakalan jual NSX yang terbaru di tahun 2014 atau 2015 di Indo lho...

Waw... seberat itukah...? Engga heran saya belum pernah lihat Dodge Challenger yang diajak drifting. Mungkin karena langsung pada milih Viper ya? :iconyui-whutplz:

*Ngakunya sports car, tapi koq beratnya ampir sama kayak SUV. Emang dipasangin apa aja sih sampe bisa seberat itu yah...?* :iconyuihuhplz:

Sebentar deh, saya tau kalo S2000 dan ITR udah engga diproduksi lagi. Tapi bukannya Civic Type-R juga udah engga diproduksi lagi? Model barunya aja udah dikasih liat koq konsepnya, walaupun masih belum jelas spesifikasinya. :iconyuitwirlplz:

Mugen RR beneran atau bukan...? Soalnya di Jakarta aja banyak FD1 yang pake body kit Mugen RR tapi mesin masih standar R18A bukannya K20A.

Honda bakalan jual NSX di Indonesia...? Ah, saya koq malah cuek ya? Paling juga ngantrinya bakalan lama karena kuota yang super ketat. :iconiceuplz:

Toni07 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
Mungkin juga, lagipula aku recommend Viper SRT ato Charger SRT8 (soalnya kalo mau kurangi berat mobil lebih mudah)...

Soalnya aku pernah lihat mobil Challenger drifting, tapi karena beratnya, jadi kena understeer trus tabrakan deh... Seperti kamu coba belok pake Pajero (karena beratnya sedikit lebih ringan daripada Challenger, harusnya arah belokannya lebih dalam dari pada Challenger).

Mobil yang kulihat itu pernah minta ganti oli di bengkel papa saya, mobil itu ada pas saya pulang sekolah, pas aku lihat lebih dekat, mesinnya beneran K20A lho!! Bukan mesin R18A !(mobil yang kulihat bukan versi FD1, tapi FD2 sedan)

Mungkin, pasti NSX terbaru jadi rivalnya Nissan GT-R ama Spirra Turbo (Sama-sama buatan Asia)...

NotoAyako Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Terutama Viper SRT10, dari namanya aja udah ketauan kalo itu mobil 10 silinder, lebih tepatnya 8 liter kapasitasnya. Jelas lebih bertenaga untuk drifting dibandingkan Challenger yang cuma 8 silinder. :iconyukkolikeniplz:

Wah... kalo Pajero sport beneran deh saya belum pernah bawa. Di rumah cuma ada Vitara sih... :iconyukkoshyniplz:

Bengkel...? Punya papa...? Ngoprek K20A punyanya Type-R...? Wait a second, who are you actually...? A son of a famous mechanic in Jakarta or what...? :iconyuukoshockniplz:

NSX mungkin bisa jadi rivalnya GT-R, tapi entah kenapa saya koq lebih suka GT-R ke mana2 ya...? Mungkin karena saya lebih suka mobil yang mesinnya di depan? Kalo Spirra... mesin Hyundai, tenaga mungkin bisa diadu, tapi handlingnya gimana...? :iconyukkothinkingniplz:

:icontoni07:
Toni07 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013
Tentu saja Viper yang paling bagus di drift, beratnya sangat ringan dari pada Challenger... (Lagipula mesinnya hampir mirip Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro, sama-sama V10), trus lebih enak dilihat, dari pada Challenger yang mirip sabun yang dibuat mobil2an ama anak tk...

Vitara kamu tahun berapa ya???

Bengkel itu punya kakek saya, papa saya kerja disitu, trus mobil K20A itu punya temen ortu saya... (Kalo gak salah waktu itu mobilnya pecah ban, jadi sekalian deh...)

Aku pernah lihat Spirra di Top Gear Korea, Spirra memang cukup bagus dan mampu bersaing dengan GT-R, NSX, dan supercar lainnya, tapi drivernya aja yang koplak, mobilnya malah kehilangan kendali deh... (Stig yang dari UK lebih baik daripada yang dari Korea)

Wahahaha... Kirain saya aja yg mikir kalo bentuk Challenger itu kaku dan -agak- jelek, ternyata banyak juga ya yang mikir begitu... :iconhakaselolniplz:

Vitara ayah saya tahun 2008, Agustus ini lagi proses untuk perpanjang plat nomor. Kalau mau liat kira2 gimana bentuknya bisa diliat di sini.

Wah... asik juga ya punya usaha bengkel. Di keluarga yang punya usaha begitu cuma mertua saya, kalau saya sendiri sih masih jadi pegawai di perusahaan orang, hehe... :iconhakaseshyniplz:

Beneran nih di Korea ada Top Gear-nya juga...? Weleh, tinggal tunggu aja nanti Indonesia bikin Top Gear juga. Eh, tapi nanti isinya apa ya...? Gak ada sedan sport MPV 7 penumpang pun jadi kali ya...? :iconhakaseblushingniplz:

I'm still pretty much a beginner in drifting, and for you information, it is very difficult to handle that much of power. Takes tons of skill and experience to handle and drift it properly, which I don't have at the moment. And yea, it takes a lot of strength, too, which explains why it is really hard for female drivers. :iconahemplz:

Yea... Indeed. Muscle cars are getting more and more into drifting scenes nowadays. :iconyukkolikeniplz:

...and yes, the Mustang is indeed the GT500, although this one is the converted-to-RHD version of it while the white car is a Holden VZ Monaro. Vauxhall Monaro is basically a rebadged Holden Monaro. Vauxhall imported them CBU from Aussie. Aside of that, you have to remember that the Monaro is Pontiac GTO in US, in LHD configuration, though. :iconyukkoganbatteniplz:

Semuanya bisa diajak drifting. Yang penting layout-nya FR dan punya tenaga mumpuni. :iconyukkoganbatteniplz:

Mobil modern susah diajak drifting dalam keadaan standar karena kebanyakan perangkat elektronik untuk bantu handling-nya, semisal traction control atau malah belum dipasang LSD dari pabrikan. :iconyukkopifniplz:

Masa sih engga ngerti LHD atau RHD...? Itu layout dashboard untuk penempatan posisi setir. LHD itu maksudnya setir kiri kayak yang dipake di Amrik dan engga boleh masuk sini. Kalau RHD itu biasa kita sebut setir kanan, yang biasa kita pake di sini. :iconyukkoideaniplz:
