confused

what does "lolz" mean?

i know what "fake" means and i gotta say I'm a little surprised why the validity of any experience on this forum is even a question. Unless you where actually at any particular event posted by anyone on this site you cant really say "fake" with any weight.

Anyway I've mentioned before that I have nothing to prove. I've been at this since 1986. But if things ever get boring in Utah i'm not that far away. I always wondered what a miata could do in a real life situation.

I welcome the challenge 35.213088,-106.460953

dear takumi - I want you to know that cartoons (they are not movies either) are fake too, and besides that - "events" are different from your " secret spot". Drift Buffet has actual media coverage and multiple videos on youtube. You "secret spot" is just that.....a secret!
lolerskates

I'll take you up on your challenge... but you have to battle my grandma first cuz she's hella quick on the uphill!

Ok ... so you're still learing ....

You *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored*ing kids never cease to amaze me. bring what you got.
Now ... like 5 posts later, you're ready to "GIT IT ON!!!"

So it was guys like you in the '70's and '80's that brought the drifting community "events"? Could you even expalin how that remark makes any sense? Are you saying that you have been drifting since then? Are you like a 50 year old drift prodigy that's been hiding like some crazy man in the mountains for all these years waiting to be discovered.

I bet you've have like a crazy white mullet and Gandor the Gray style beard rocking a 1970 Camaro SS. It's got the "big and little" classic Cragers rolling on some white letter Daytona Qualifer rubber. Coming out of the turns on some obscure mountain in NM that's easily 100 times greater than Akina. The old 'maro would be locked up in full burn with your mirror'd aviators gleaming off the next apex ... white hair flowing to the sound of Lynard Skynard, snake skin boots jamming on the Muncie while the cherry bomb's are blazing ...

yeahhhhhh ... something like that right?

haha ... radical dood

I am white, I can dunk a basketball on a 12 foot rim, I can bench press 900 lbs and have two black girlfriends that come in at a combined weight of 950 kilos. I also sell mix tapes out of the trunk of my corvair that doubles as a drift car. One time I used my socks to make a power steering belt so I could continue to run the downhill at Mt. Fuji. But since I am only 14 years old my dad had to drive home to Riverside and we got a ticket for having 3 headlights.

You are dumb. PERIOD. Roots? I thought that was a movie? The mountain? Haha.... I own GMR.
You worked at Toyota in the 90's? As what? a service porter at a dealership?
You wish you got the pay that I did to be a lowly test driver. I don't care if the CEO of BMW knows my name... I only care that he signs my check.

Your RX7 is soooo bad azz I wouldn't dare run my 2 door R32 against it... I'll have to bring the 4door. or maybe I will just bring my skateboard and blow you away on the downhill. ROFL

You make a lot of big talk here so just ask Ben who you are talking to.... and ask him how old I am.

I made the Kessel run in 14.2 parsecs.... top that!

This guy claims to know Ben... so is it Gary playing trick on me or what?
I am just starting to have fun..... but it is 2:30 am in beijing so I'll get some rest and be back for round 3,4 and 5 in the morning.

I haven't had this much fun since I got banned from 3kgt for telling everyone on there that 3000gt's are crap! Just like phakeriders stories!

keep talking Phakerider... I only "drag" Ben into this because he used to drive all the way to California just to attend my events, besides that I consider him a friend and since you know him you may wish to clarify who you are talking to.

Now keep struggling to get your post count up while you continue to tell me how much I suck and blah blah blah.....

I think I nailed it with the dealership comment since you don't seem to wann brag about that anymore.

Now go back to your hidden hill Trollkumi. Maybe your imaginary turbo Z33 will show up and you'll smoke him again with your uber awesome RX-7.

Don't forget to wipe the drool off of your pillow when you wake up from your sweet dream!

Well if you notice i was never actually 'trash talking' or anything like that, you say next time im in new mexico like i've been before. I never have and don't have any future plans to ever be down there anytime soon so im not sure why i would go for the soul purpose of 'racing' you or whatever it is you're tempting me to do. I'm just simply saying this thread has brought me many epic lols and has been pretty good entertainment for the morning, thank you.

Trollkumi, don't back out now... you just called me assclown. I am a business owner(www.driftbuffet.com), sponsored driver,paid test pilot, professional trash talker and ....oh yeah... one more thing - I drove all the cars in your favorite video game so they could record the sound and make your dreams feel real!

I am older than you think, faster than you'll ever be and have more seat time than your whole damn family. Now go make some popcorn for "utah" so he can continue to have a few LOLS today and not go hungry!

I'm going to go listen to some DEL, a little Freestyle Fellowship, and maybe some
Gorrillaz while I get paid to drive cars. I think you get paid to drive cars too - from the service writer to the bay....
Har har har.

I mean you've got to know how dumb your first post sounds right?

You said there you only have 2 years of experience (which I think is plenty really But i'll get into that later) But hell yeah downhill is scary I don't know anyone who even has a misconception that it isn't.

Quote:
I went to the spot alone thursday alone and a Z33 happened to get behind me on the uphill. About 8 minutes of maddness. This situation wasnt my intention but i figured it would help to have a little pressure.

he gave up about 4 minuets in, yeah my head swelled. I beat a turbo z in a n/a spraypainted rotary. but what hit me more was how comfortable i was. the only thing that slowed my down was a bad rear brake rotor that kept throwing off weight transfers. Drifts were confident and complete. straits were slow (N/A). I got to the point where i wasnt nervously staring at the hood and steering wheel. I was actually looking about 4 to 7 seconds ahead to the next incline.
You have 2 years of experience and you're just starting to look a head of yourself, slow learner I take it. But really I have no idea how ONE rear brake rotor could be throwing off your weight transfer, if any of your brakes work weight transfer will happen anyways. Also if you didnt know the guy how did you know it was a turbo Z

Quote:
I think I'm hooked. I even came home and finally tried an uphill course on the simulater TXRD2.
now this is the one that cracks me up Kaido battle 3 (Tokyo racer drift 2) Is not a simulator has some of the worst physics of any game I have ever played I have pplayed the *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* out of the japanese version because well it is fun. But it is not a sim in any respect really


Quote:
The weight transfer issue is my main question. My rear brakes need work. but the car would rock like a ship on braking and turn in to the next drift.

so any tips on controlling weight transition?
this is such a vague question you can't even answer it its like asking "how do I sail a Sail boat?" i mean the specifics are deep and varied based on the situation. But really if you want to ask a vague question you will get a vague answer

Shift weight forward = let off gas or get on brakes
Shift weight rearward = get on gas
shift weight to the right = turn left
shift weight to left = turn left

use in combination but im sure with 2 years of experience you should al ready know that.

Quote:
Yes, I need to install my suspension but its cold here so that has to wait.

and either way good suspension or not a bad transition is a bad transition. And i definitely had myself worried two times.

thank you in advance
i mean really what you said sounds very vague in every respect so vage that it could easily be a complete fabrication. believe it or not we get alot of people who join this and other web sites who love to make tons of *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* up and we usually don't give stories like yours the benefit of the doubt unless there is some sort of proof
