Damn, I see what you mean :?

I guess you have to make do and sift through pages of crap to find what you want

Unless someone else here has a better method?

Funnily enough searching for "drift" OR "toyota" on a toyota forum will return a lot of results as 2LTR Rona said, click the radio button to search for all terms or use the AND operator

Its a standard search tool. Just make sure to use the AND, OR, and NOT operators properly. eg:

toyota AND drift NOT nissan NOT honda -> comes up with 30 results (including this thread :lol: )

Just have a play with the different words according to what you're trying to find. You'll usually be able to nail it in a couple of searches. And kudos to you for trying to use it before asking! :)
