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.

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.

If you care for your transfer box... dont do it. Any Subaru/Evo/4wd/awd that you see drifting has had its drivetrain modified in some way or another.

Anyone know if DriftDay 101 is still in business? I've emailed Naoki@driftday.com, and Kat@driftday.com and have yet to receive a response.

DD101 caught my eye because they had car rentals. I'm willing to fly anywhere in the US to get drift lessons, located in Nor-Cal if it helps.

Naoki is still running Drifting 101 and he gets slammed with emails.

Please PM your contact number and email address so we will ask him to contact you.
