LS-Swapped Nissan Skyline Drifted Masterfully by Man with No Arms
Mastering the art of drifting is hard enough with two hands, but setbacks in this racer’s life haven’t held him back, at all.
Drifting, like any other form of motorsport, takes a great amount of skill and practice to master. It also typically takes two hands, as well. But after Bartosz Ostałowski lost both of his arms in a motorcycle accident, pursuing his dreams of drifting (or driving in general) seemed like a lost cause. Yet, Ostalowski refused to let fate dictate his future. In fact, he learned how to drift his LS-Swapped R34 Skyline with his feet. Which is every bit as incredible as it sounds.
Mainly because, as previously mentioned, we’ve got a guy who drifts an LS-swapped Skyline using nothing but his freaking feet. And he does it on a pro level. Watching this thing slide around corners, you’d never guess that the driver wasn’t doing it with the use of both hands. Let alone zero of them.
Accomplishing that impossible feat required a custom gearbox with an e-brake mounted above the regular brake and gas pedals. There’s also another pedal that releases the seat belt, just in case of emergency. Ostalowski changes gears using a special paddle mounted right in front of his right shoulder. Everything else is controlled via a push button panel mounted on the dash. And watching it all in action is pure magic.
