^ Yeah ... totally what he said ... Crossville, TN here ...

I KNOW we'd have to be able to set something up ... everytime I drive through Knoxville on the way to NC I see a Nissan, Toyota, or Mazda with drift stickers and stuff on it ...

So some people in the TN area have to be interested in it. Just got to figure out how to get them all together. But that's a side project I'm working on *wink*

^ since the move i'm switching gears from desert racing back to drift mode ... but i'm down totally. what you guys drive?

i'm not sure if i want another S13 again, or a Road&Star, or something all together i've not done before. i was thinking euro for a while ... but i'm leaning towards a S13 or S14 ... or a cressy if i can find a sweet one ...

anywho .. let me know i'm wanting another touge team rolling myself. i've missed it for WAYYYY too long!

maybe we could run 1x a month down near nashville, another time up toward's knoxville ... and then every couple of months we HAVE to hit up NC .. those are the sickest in America. F so-cal ... NC is where it's at!

Talking man.....

And I thought drifting was not popular around me... LOL.... what was I thinking? Anyway, I have not really been drifting before, but I have watched the Drift Bible movie like a 100 times or more. So if some one could help me out. As in a place to meet and practice it would be grand, you may contact me through yahoo instant messanger any time at jtarules89tn. Or aol instant messanger at jtakapeaches. thanks in advance guys... Also I am thinking of getting a 240sx for my 1st drift car, any ideas if this is a great car for a noob drifter?

I wud luv to try my hand at touge. I'm in cumberland county (crossville) bout and hour and a half from nashville. We don't have many twisting roads but the couple we have I luv hauling on. I don't like cutting curves during the day might hit an oncoming car so I usually just ride the apex I know I'm supposed to cut but I'm not gonna risk a head on collision lol. I'd like to meet other 240 owners I only know 2 in this town and they have sr20s (still saving for mine) I'd be down for a meet if I don't have school or work.

Dang I missed the nashville event on there I had work I wanted to watch granted I like to slide around in town wen no ones lookin I don't have the tires for an event like that n I prolly wudnt be that good scratch that prolly not good at all lol. I just pulled a good smooth burnout at my friends after installing the spl aluminum bushings for the wheel hop so I might be takin her to the strip to see what she run after those n the kaaz install. If anyone in knoxville with a 240 or corolla or rx7 etc wanna meet up n shoot sh!t post it I only know where the mall is lol dunno the city hardly. Crossville doesn't have but like less than 10 240s two have sr's mine has more done than the other 7 and only 2 or 3 fcs here and one ae86 that I know of driven by a redneck lol

ha I was told he won't sell it. Anywho drifting has been canceled at the NASHVILLE super speedway for the remainder of the year who knows if its forever. Some douche nozzles vandalized the offices by the bathrooms so if anyone knows of events happening anywhere else post here and help us Tennessee guys out cuz that's where all our events where at this year.
