Yeah its me! Whats up man. Were you able to get the sweeper down after I left?

I feel like I would have been able to nail it if I stayed longer but I had to take off.

We should totally do drift 102 when it comes out, hopefully your FC will be ready by then.

yeah, I took part in the drift 101 when all the fairlady were out there, it was fun, but i'm really glad you guys knocked it down to two students so we can really have more time to learn an practice the techniques. I just recently got a AE86 Coupe and I cant wait to return with my new coupe on the 17th, hopefully it will get me ready for altamont (Drift Battle practices/events)

heh, today was good; but there will be no more D101 for me!
I really appreciate you guys letting me run with the Drift Day group. I got home today after a 300 mile ride back, and my corolla drove like crap, I think the differential is grinding or something...time to dump more money into my car *sigh*...Anyway coming back helped me fine tune everything before going to events, now I'm ready, thanks!

i know this is sort of an old thread. but i was wondering at this drift 101 class.

do you do more than doughnuts and fig 8's? i know they are basics and basics are important. but do you get seat time where you go through a course? take some multiple turns and stuff?

Depending on how long it takes you to get the basics you will get seat time on a course.

Once they think you got it down they let you run with a group and practice.

Last I heard they're working on a drift 102 class and Im counting the days!

East Coast Drifting

Do you know of anything on the Southern East Coast? At www.BadBoyTires.com we are trying to get a drift school event together for our local customer base in NC,SC, TN or Georgia. There's so much in SoCal but a huge fan base on this side of the country. What's a fan to do? Just a website or e-mail would help.

As far as I know DriftDay is pretty much a national organization and they might have a division in your area. I would check out driftday.com or email Naoki (Naoki at driftday dot com) and see if they have people in your area to help you out.

If not then I say you do what Drift Alliance did. When there are no drift events in your area: start your own.

If you run a business and have the money to spare I'd start talking to local tracks or even owners of parking lot areas and the like to see if you can work something out.

I looked on the site (and maybe I didn't look good enough) but I didn't manage to see where Drift 101 is located.
