Hey all, just thought I would say hello as I just reg. with the site, looking good! Im from Toronto, CAN and the compact car/import scene up here is on fire. (All be it there is WAY to much 'rice' out there, but oh well, that's a given :p ). BUT we have our fare share of true car enthusiats up here :D So I assume this is THE place to be to get drifting into the mainstream...as we ALL know how awesome it is. :D (I just hope it doesn't get TO mainstream, etc...and still keeps that 'underground' persona to a degree ;) ).

Neways, as for me, I've got sumptin a little different...it's an 87 Pontiac Fiero GT...wit a 3.8L turbo motor in it :D and YES I luv the surprised/dumbfounded look on the faces of "higher priced machines" out there when we "play". I've seen some of the rides here and they are friggin SWEET...I luv JDM rides as well as nicely done Euro rides as well, and OF COURSE good ol American muscle too....one thing I have learned over the years is that EVERY car has its pluses and minuses (im 24 now, oi!)
I used to have a Civic w/ ZC in it, etc....but wanted sumptin a bit different, looked at rx7, talon, 240sx, mr2 and impreza, but all so much $...and well, the Fiero proved to be a cheap alternative with ideal setup potential.....

How far along is the drift scene in the US right now? Where are u all mainly from...Cali?

There are a couple of guys here I know that wanna start a major club here in TO and they were down in Cali for that show...I hope to help them out with it, and I hope this will be a great place for info. (I'm not one who favours the car show scene at all anymore...it's pure track, plain and simple.)

See u guyz around.
Oh, I also run a site that's undergoing some work now, (see sig.)pls. feel free to check it out and use it, its free! :D

Yea most of us are from Cali considering the drift show that was over here...basically got all these people out of the woodwork. Dirfting its spreading like wild fire in the US hopefully the cops won't catch on, heh.
