thanks bro... I guess I never though of how bad the outcome could have been. the cage helmet and stuff made me feel safe. I notice as soon as I got the cage 3rd gear drifting toward the wall didnt seem so scary..... good and bad hahhaa.

yeazup ill be missing it all man.,...

first day back on the track since the wreck a few weeks back.



















First day back on the track following the biggest wreck of my drift career. We are just not regular people lol.... This video came from my earlier sessions. I started having issues with my camera and could not capture my better runs. Do to bracing modifications, the car is much stiffer than the last which was something I had to get use to in the early part of the day. Once I overcame the initial feeling of the car, I felt right at home and began attacking the wall portion of the track in sections. The next time out, ill be able to put it all together. The track conditions were wet and dry

I'm just tuning in for the music now lol.


I give you props for driving with the wipers on, me personally... I would just just wipe before a run then just go at it no matter the condition. Wipers just ruin the train of thought.

Sup guys been a while. I got back from Iraq the day before the big earth quake in Japan. Due to the circumstances, I was put to work right away.... Now that things have sorta stabalized, I got to the track and back to my car. As of right now.. looks like Spring Matsuri will not be happening for me due to the radiation near Fukushima ( not my choice )

First day back on the track in 9 months!!!!!
