Default Dorifuto NA

A friend of mine took his 1.6L NA out to Motiva Motor Speedway for today's Easter drift event, and I had my GoPro, so these were the videos that resulted.

First two aren't great 'cause the camera wasn't mounted on-car.

This was his first time out on the track...

Yes. Can't you tell by how stylish it is, and the fact that it's a bar?

It's pretty clearly a style bar.

How'd they even let that on track?

....Oh, drift event.

How have you gone 58 posts without realizing you'd make yourself a pariah by posting this? Including this post, using my powers of inebriated forethought, you caught on 25.86% slower than I did. And I'm not even off to a flying start.

How have you gone your entire life caring so much about what people think of you that you're willing to alter who you are in order to satisfy someone elses opinions? ESPECIALLY random people on an internet forum...

I like drifting, I like Miatas, and I like drifting IN Miatas. So why would I stop doing it? Because someone else said they don't like drifting? I don't think so.
And, as soon as my car gets turbo'd and everything gets broken in, you can expect some drifting vids of my car as well

While the principle here is well intended, you don't walk into a Catholic church, start professing the glory of Islam and demand everyone accept your views.

MT is a community. Drifting is not favored among this community. We don't need to accept you and what you want to do with your car just because you exist. Want to drift, talk about drifting, post videos of drifting and not get **** on? It's not going to happen here.

I dont mind drifting, i'd actually enjoy a good quality video of some turbo miata sliding action. What you posted however.. it was just bad. :P I mean no personal offense either and hope you continue posting videos here, just hopefully they have cooler cars in the future

Can we just put him out of his misery?

He is obviously the saddest sack of crap on the planet, not worthy of logging in here.

(actually should be castrated too)

Drifting with your harness attached to a style bar is like Isle of Man TT motorcycle racing without a helmet.
I guess if drifter's gonna drift, then retard's gonna tard.
