From the beginning of
the season to the end has been a hell of a ride. The highs and lows a
competition can have are remarkable. In the learning experience one goes
through. Looking back to one year ago never drifting. To riding the walls that
pro’s do. It takes a lot for a dream to come from. Just one year before
watching in the stands. Not one person but a team needs to be there for the
success of any form of racing. Acquiring new sponsors Tomie, Buddy Club, MOMO,
AT&T Wireless, Braille Battery, and the continued help from Tire Dogs is wonderful. Especially
Rainy Day Mods for everything (Flint).
Obtaining our pro license will mean nothing in competing
again most of the pro’s driving. They have years multiplied together in experience
on everything. That my team and I have
don’t have. Only driving and competing will only shorten the gap. Also the
shortage of help not provided to the small pro teams, pro-am, and grassroots.
Only hinders the growth of the sport and drivers. Noticing even the smallest of
help to the underdogs will go a long ways. Maybe not free parts but even a
discount. Allowing driver’s to allocate the saved money to driving in more
events. Furthering the exposure each sponsor gets, but upholding our end as a
driver is just important as the help received. Creating a two way street
selling my dreams to the audience.
I’ve had a quite a
bit of people ask me. Why is my car number 100? Well for those who would like
to know. My mom always used to tell me “give 100 percent or more into everything
I do. Even if you fall short or pass your goals. You will always be happy of
the outcome.” Taking whole heartedly of that what she said. Playing college
basketball and everything else I could never have # 100, but in racing you can.
So that was the first thing came to mind in picking a number to represent our
car. So when you see 100. Know to give 100 percent in your aspirations’.
The off season is just as
important if not more important to the regular season. So this year our team
will set it up. Furthering everything with the progression of the car to the
last penny provided to drive next season. So everyone keep a look out for new
updates. I’ll see you all at the next drift event September 29 at Evergreen.
Check out the new Schedule. Here the list of events. Also look at the schedule page. Ill be in other events. around the pacific north west racing. Have fun everyone and get sideway.
ROUND 4 Pro AM
THIS EVENT WAS PRETTY EPIC FOR THE CREW AND ME. WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS
HECTIC LIKE ALWAYS. TRYING TO FIND THE TRAILER WE ALWAYS USE. IT WAS NOT
IN THE NORMAL PLACE IT USUALLY IS IN. MAN HUNTING WENT DOWN. LOOKING
FOR THE TRAILER UNTIL 1 AM IN THE MOURNING. BARELY SLEEPING THINKING
ABOUT HOW WILL WE GET TO THE EVENT. SO I WAITED TO CALL THE OWNER AT
8AM. FINALLY WE FOUND IT ABOUT 8 MILES AWAY. AFTER LOADING THE DRIFT CAR
WE WERE ALL ON OUR WAY.
THURSDAY THERE WAS PRACTICE WHICH WENT GREAT. FLINT ALWAYS HAS THE CAR
ON TARGET. WE SLEPT AT THE TRACK THANKS TO KELLY HALE. WITH THUNDER
BANGING ALL NIGHT. THERE WAS LITTLE SLEEP FOR ME. I ALSO FORGOT MY
SLEEPING BAG AND PILLOW. SO I SLEPT ON TOP OF MY RACE SUIT. PRACTICE WAS
CALLED OFF BY FD BECAUSE OF THE WET CONDITION WASHINGTON HAS. NOT LIKE
WE HAVEN'T DRIFTED THIS TRACK IN THE WET BEFORE. FD USED THIS TIME TO
PRACTICE AND WAS ABLE TO DRY THE TRACK FOR US. QUALIFYING WITH 38 POINTS
DIDN'T DO SO WELL, BUT WHAT CAN I SAY. DRIVE BETTER NEXT TIME.
SATURDAY WAS MAYHEM EVERYTHING WAS IN FULL SWING. ALL THE NORTHWEST FANS
WERE THERE. ALL THE PRO GUYS CAUSED OUR EVENT TO BE RUSHED, BUT THERE
ARE A LOT OF GOOD DRIVERS. VICTOR MOORE CRASHED HIS CAR ON THE FRONT
DRIVER SIDE. SO WE LET HIM USE EVER PART HE NEEDED. IN ORDER TO GET BACK
ON THE TRACK. THAT GUY CAN DRIVE. THE CAMBER, TOE AND ALIGNMENT WAS WAY
WAY OFF, BUT WE ALL WERE ABLE TO MANAGE TO FIX IN BETWEEN RUNS. TO MAKE
THE CAR MANAGEABLE. HE PUSHED IT TO THE LIMIT AND WAS ABLE TO MAKE TO
SUNDAY WAS THE BEST THING FOR ME. I WAS ABLE TO GET SOME MUCH NEEDED
PRACTICE. SINCE I HAVED ONLY BEEN DRIFTING ONE YEAR. DRIFTING NEXT TO
TONY BROKIAHAPA, AND TONY ANGELO MADE ME SEE A FEW THINGS IVE NEVER SEEN
BEFORE. EVEN THOUGH WHILE DRIFTING WITH TONY ANGELO I DIDNT KNOW THERE
WAS TWO DRIVER BEHIND ME. I SPUN OUT AND WAS HIT BY DAVID (MY BAD BRO).
IM GLAD HE WAS ABLE TO STILL DRIFT. THE CAR WAS HIT PRETTY BAD BUT IT
CAN ALL BE FIXED.
ALSO THERE WERE A FEW SPONSOR. THAT CAME ABOARD A WEEK OR SO BEFORE FD. THANKS TOMEI USA, BUDDY CLUB, AND MOMO USA.
There has been a few things that changed. A new engine has been put in the car. So more problems. With that old tired motor. We now have a oil cooler kit. With the oil filter reallocator. .So the power plant doesn't get hot. During practice we waited 5 to 6 minutes each run. Before drifting again (lol). While a strut bar and seem welded front end has be done. A new steering rack with solid steering rack bushing, and solid steering spacers.
The car handles completely like a new car. There a major difference in power. Ls2 coil packs has been installed. Saving up a more $$to get that stand alone. Theres just to much to say, about whats all been done. Thanks to Rainy Day Mods.
I cant wait until school is out and finals are over. For quantum physics and Differential Equations (lol) To work more and progress the car further.
tELL US, WHAT YOU THINK OF THE THIS T-SHIRT IDEA. CAN YOU SEND ALL comMENTs. TO OUR EMAIL. FOR MORE IDEAS OR IMPRESSIONS. THAT COULD BE BETTER.
This was my first Pro-Am event. After taking a long break from drifting. I decided to build a Pro-Am car. The damage came from my first meet with the wall. Damaging a buddy club wheel, lower control arm, inner and outer tie rod. About $500 worth. That had to be fixed. A couple of weeks later. Everything was upgraded with better part. I made it to the next round. Thanks for Flint.
