Before the 2018 year ended I made it my goal to go out and attend a drift event before the year ended. Coming back from a previous crash at Thunder Hill months back I was a bit tense on going out and driving again. It’s almost like I had to relearn everything I had once learned pertaining to drifting. It was tough but I knew I had to just do it and get behind the wheel once again.
Once on track I started to feel more comfortable after each lap. The car performed great and allowed me to have tons of seat time and focus on just my driving.
There was a great showing of very nice cars and driving throughout the day and it was also cool to know that for future events The Good Luck League will include twin drift competitions to push drivers to improve their skills. I thought that was very cool and look forward to reach that skill level in the future. These two Auto Collect Storm cars piloted by Roy and Max were out there throwing down some nice twin drift runs throughout the day.
One of my favorite cars of the day was this GS driven by Mel. It looked so mean sitting on the chrome SSR’s. Makes me consider getting a GS, really diggin’ the big body sedans as of late.
It would be nice to have an event were nothing went wrong and trust me I have had those but a very minimal repair that I did have to do this event was swap out the slave master cylinder. Before the event I had already bled the slave master cylinder because I was thinking it could give out considering it was just a regular $15 O'reilly unit. About mid day the clutch pedal started to feel really mushy and the clutch was not engaging till midway so I decide it to swap it out with the same part but a new one. Good thing I took a spare with me this day. After my friend and cousin helped me bleed the line we were good to go and had the clutch feeling how it should.
I’m proud I was able to go out and do an event before the year ended just like I had set out to do. I want to thank my friend Benny for going out and taking these amazing photos for all you to enjoy. He really outdid himself and I’m just so proud to see his work improve every single time. Appreciate it brother!
I also want to thank my lil cousin Brian for making it out to his first drift event with me. He helped me out with everything and I just hope he had fun and enjoyed watching all the cool cars and drivers that day.
Lastly, I want to thank you! Thank you for taking the time to check out this blog post. Hope you check back soon to see more updates in the future. We have tons of post in store for 2019. The green 180sx hatch has the SR motor currently being built at Gromm Racing and we can’t wait to get that project underway! We also have some updates for the s13 coupe to keep you all entertained in the meantime.
See you soon.
