    19 days shit dicks!

    Get your busted ass cars running/driftable, make sure your leaks are to a VERY MINIMUM (wrap that shit up with duck tape if you have to), harvest tires, acquire drift spares, and make sure all nuts/bolts are tight.

    FLUID LEAKS: it is highly suggested that you make sure all your fluid leaks are taken care of as good as you can get them. We want to keep the skid pad as clean as possible so we can continue to use it without problems!

    You will get plenty of seat time, this is a full day(8hr) event. If it's your first event, you will probably be exhausted before the event ends.

    A lot of ppl on fb "wanting" to do it but seems like its a lot of spectators since only 4 registered so far, I'll start the list:


    Drivers list:
    1. ktran(me)
    2. Dominic F.
    3. Dbo
    4. Jarred(shreveport dude)
    5.?


    I hope ppl realize that they can save a few bucks and make tings easier by pre-registerring via paypal,

    the registration/payments taken the day of will have to be CASH only as we don't take checks or c. cards.

    I'm gonna register prob. monday or tuesday aswell. I really suck, but i havent been in the car or been drifting long at all, so yes im a noob and will most likely need a few tips to better myself. I was in the white s14 at belle rose for the last event, so if you were there you know what im talking about lol. I kinda started to figure it out a little at the very end but still need lotssssss of practice. So any help at this event will be greatly appreciated.

    dont be afraid, we're here to help if you want it, you'l learn a lot at this event compared to events at belle rose just because you wont be trying to learn the concepts of drifting on a road course. The environment will be more safe and you'll be less intimidated by a non road course event.

    make sure your car is up to its maintenance and that you have good supporting mods(locking diff) to help get a better feeling and understanding of drifting so that you are not fighting the car while trying to learn.

    yes, but keep in mind that if you run smaller width or diameter tires, it'll help you a little with breaking loose the rear tires easier, even with a torsen diff.

    but torsens still suck for drifting'

    making me regret getting rid of the stock wheels/tires, they were horrible in wet conditions. they probably would have be much easier to use for this type of event.
