Successful Rookie Year @ 2016 Evergreen Drift Grassroots Championship

So our First year in real Competitive Drifting has come to and end!

The 2016 year at Evergreen Grassroots Championship was a big learning experience and with our new drift car the 350z It was a big change from drifting a lighter and more nimble 240sx!

The First two Rounds of the Championship we were limited by Stock Angle and too low of a ride height causing some unwanted tire rubbing and not enough Suspension Travel.

Before Round #3 we Raised the vehicle about 1.5 inches all around from its daily/street stance ride height it had before.    We also installed some custom Rack Spacers for the Tie Rods and Cut the Bump stops just over half their factory length.

We noticed an instant improvement in how the Vehicle handle while drifting at the fast Evergreen Speedway.    With the more Angle Tandems became alot easier and spin outs almost became non existent.

Round 1, 2 and 3     We Battled our way into the Top 32 Drivers but got taken out in the first Round of Competition.

Round 4 and 5 we really had the 350z Tamed and dialed in!  Both of these Rounds we battled our way up to the Top 8 Drivers.   We got paired up against the Season Champion Brian Girard from DriftHau5 and also a great Driver who took home 1st Place.   Gaelen from the Midnighters.  Both Drivers beat us but we did not hand them the Victory we put down some of the best runs we have all season and made them work for it!

The Final Points from the Season aren’t up yet.  But we Believe we placed 9th out of about 40 Drivers total in the Season.    We are happy with our Placement for our Rookie Year with a new Vehicle.     Next year we are planning a Formula D Spec Roll Cage and some weight reduction in the 350z!!

 

 

 

Evergreen Drift Grassroots Championship Round #2

We hit Evergreen Drift Grassroots Championship Round 2 on July 12th, 2016

This was the Second Event with the new 350z Drift Car.  Shook off the Rust in the morning with some practice runs for about 1.5 hours.   Then we got into Competition in the early afternoon.

We got into the top 32 last event and was doing fairly well in practice so we got into the top 32 again.   We got to watch a round of battles before it was our turn.  We were paired up against Alex Hageman.   On our first run we ran out of Angle coming off the 3/8th Bank and ended up spinning out.  Our next run we competed the course and did well but Scoring a Zero against Alex Hageman and his Consistent driving all day.  He advanced beating us and knocking us out in the Top 32.   Alex Hageman drove great the rest of the day and actually ended up taking First place!!  Congratz to him on his first Podium Finish.

We are planning on installing some Angle Modifications to the 350z before the next Round on July 24th 2016, we are really noticing the 350z has alot less angle than the S13’s and Skyline’s Shelby is used to Drifting.  Hopefully we will finally break into the top 16 or farther next Round.

We also Purchased a 2004 F-150 for a new Tow Rig!   Fountain Tire Chilliwack sold it to us and they have treated her good all its life lots of maintenance.    Big thanks to them aswell for the Sponsorship, Trailer and Fuel to get down to the Event!!
