Whether he is drifting up the Crown Range in New Zealand, competing in professional drift events all over the world, running his own graphic design/signage business or building top notch drift cars, Mike “Mad Mike” Whiddett is always up to something crazy. Well, he is at it again with this latest drift build. Those of you familiar with Mad Mike’s cars may know his Mazda RX-7 fitted with a quad-rotor 26b called “Madbul,” or his Mazda RX-8 with a tri-rotor 20b called “Badbul.” Both Madbul and Badbul are highly competitive professional drift cars that make 534 hp and 813 hp, respectively. While many people would be more than happy with numbers like those, Mad Mike wasn’t. He wanted more.
