Xdrift Industries are an enthusiastic drift team, with Danny Probert behind the wheel not only on the track but behind the scenes in every area of the build. Danny’s mechanical and fabrication expertise have created a unique series of XD Falcons - purpose built for drifting. Danny works alongside dedicated mechanics, engineers, fellow drifters and family to create a unique mix of knowledge, enthusiasm and respect.
Since 2004 we have constantly developed the XD Falcon Chassis. Xdrift1 is a fairly standard vehicle in respects to suspension, steering and power plants. It has proved victorious in the TEDA Championships and is continuing its career in various Australian drift events. The vehicles successor, however, is on a different level.
Xdrift4 is in development and destined for both National and International competition. It would have been much easier to start this project with a Nissan or Toyota base - with off the shelf bolt in upgrades we could have a completed car within a week. We have chosen a completely different path with our 79 XD Falcon.
The front chassis in Xdrift4 has been extensively reworked to accommodate a Wisefab front knuckle and lock kit, the rear suspension is designed and manufactured in-house. In short, we have gone about this the hard way but the end result is a vehicle that stands out from the crowd, catches the public’s imagination and it gets people talking. We use readily available parts and have designed our cars to make repairs efficient and straightforward, maximising track time.
We have kept the build specifics offline to ensure maximum impact for our 2017-18 partners. You can visit our facebook page for updates: Xdrift Industries
