    Attended my first road course event...



    ....we were drifting it though. :p Craziest event of my life. I was getting all the way to the top of 3rd gear on a 2.93 rear end and at no point at the track was anyone sliding under 40mph (or you simply would not have the speed to carry though with the drifts. Had my first accident, plowing through a tire barrier at 30mph+ and the car somehow came out alive and kept sliding. <3 e30s.

    More pictures to come later!

    - Erick

    PS: I'd also like to thank again everyone who donated some cash for me to be able to slide. To those who wanted stickers, I never sent them out because every time I look at my PM box and e-mail there's easily over 100 messages in both boxes and sorting through who wants the sticker and who doesnt is tough. So if you guys can make it easier and PM me now I'll make sure I send those out. :)

                They were a great improvement!! A lot more stable, although I am still having unpredictable and violent swings which I'm guessing are worn subframe bushings. I will be doing those as the next maintenance item, hopefully with some T/A bushings as well.

                  Moar pics! :)








                  And here's a nice frame-by-frame of a spin:








                  ^^^ That one was for the photographer, who I saw grinning behind the camera as he caught my spin on camera. :p

                  Anywho... some good video should come out of this, a friend of TJ's is helping me out to make a promo video on DVD to include with my sponsorship package. As soon as he starts hooking me up with some of the media I'll start posting up. :)

                    When I come down to florida for spring break next year, I might have to accidentally hop into the passenger seat so you can give me a tutorial:D Looks like a shit ton of fun. Maybe if I get the M30 done this summer I might just drive down.

                            if your ever in cali hit me up. i've been scouting drifting competitions in my area. im entering next one.

                            weird that our cars are pretty damn close to being identical.

                            edit: p.s. what are you running for your passenger rear wheel. i like it..
