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!

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.

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

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

WHAT? do you do burnouts at like every stop light? and is your car and automatic since I have never heard the term "power braking" used with a manual

Cause the FWD can't what? that sentence doesn't make sense

Was this in your 84 SR5 convertable?

Power brakeing is when in a car with an auto you load up the drive train before launching the car

left foot on the brake and rev the engine to build some load so when you let go of the brakes you can accelerate a bit faster out of the hole.

Anyways, if you know your rotor and pads are worn down why don't you just maintain your damn car then you won't have to compensate for your own stupidity. Pads and rotors arn't hard to change.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop telling people you are black. I've had a hard enough time on drift forums as it is.

Apparently your sentence comprehension isn't that good either
Soultron is Black and he is saying that you are a disgrace to his race

Come on your myspace has a "Screenshot" section that are all Initial D live action movie screen caps

These are on your page






Come on and there is nothing on there with you driving at all, Just a bunch of really old drifting footage that most everyone whos been at this a while has already seen.

I call *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* how I see it, have I brought up any assumptions without evidence? no its all right there. I haven't said anything about you being a bad driver or anything I don't know that Ive never seen you drive but the stuff you are typing DOESN'T MAKE SENSE

according to what's on youtube.com/americandrift, apparently no.

If it was up to just you, Tyson Beckford and me, black people would be screwed.

Soultron and Peter .... you need to hit me up on FB so we can talk about the good 'ol days of DC from back in like 2006 hahaha! What you all up to now? I'm suprised this forum is still online. Even more suprised that one of my threads from like 3 years ago is at the top of the list hahaha.
