I attended another drift event. Lock City Drift: NightStage. It's a parking lot event at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, but the owners of the facility let a few people out on the big track for testing. The hope is to run the road course for events next year. Very fun section of the track, a little scary at first throwing the car around at speed with walls and little run off, but everything went well.

I try to drive the car as much as I can, a show car it is not lol. Drifting is definitely a good time, and I've learned a lot of car control from it, which translates quite well to "grip" driving on the track.

An idea that seems to not translate well here. There are a great deal of situations that I have been saved from with car control skills learned at the drift events I've participated in. I'd assert that what people here hate the most is the archetypal 'driftard' who destroys a perfectly good car in the name of procuring dude love.

Oil cooler install at my buddies house. Bought the Track Speed Engineering kit, 25 row.



His VanDiemen formula continental getting an oil change and a full inspection before the weekend track day.



Setup the polish bridgeport to drill and tap the mocal sandwich plate for the oil temp sensor.


Marked and ready






Tapping was neat. Had to cut the tap to get to the end of the taper.


Decent, and the sensor has some clearance.




In

Another track day in the books. @4:00 bmw stuffed in the wall. @5:57 S2000 can't handle the Miata pressure, got him driving his mirrors lol.



Oil temps were great, but now it's time for a better radiator. Top consideration is the TrackSpeed rad.

Serious question. How come pro drifters always have smoke just billowing out. But when I go to the local wall tap fest there is just a little blue haze coming from behind the cars.

Pro drift cars 1000hp, locals not 1000hp. Pro drifting is power sliding.

Just read this entire thread. It's awesome. Watching your in car video's is mesmerizing.

Watched the video you just posted as well. I cracked up so hard at the spacers in the chicken coop. Same for the tire belly flop lol.

Keep posting fellow masshole!

Side note: did the guy that sold you the motor with the busted head ever hit you back? I think I've seen him post on this site too.
