Video: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift sucked, but that's just cause it wasn't shot with 360 degree cameras. This 360 degree video from the top of a Pro Drifter's car does the art of drifting justice the way the movie never could. We took the 360fly to a Clubloose Slay Ride drift event and suctioned it to the roof of Two-Time Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg's car. Just take your mouse and drag the video around to see all the different angles. Over at Jalopnik we've got the GoPro version of the lap available for a traditional viewing experience. Enjoy your time on the track.
