NASA Drift Wild Horse Motorsports Park (WHOMP) East Track

I think I’m getting a little too artsy because of the crappy zoom on the kit lens. I need to get back to basics but that means a $400 lens, shit.

I might get around to putting together the video footage I got but I’m not enthusiastic being I used a Rebel T2i and a kit lens with no media access.

Recap and Crash

So, crashing sucks. I’m sitting in my office thinking about the tasks ahead and how to proceed.

recapandcrash001

I really was hoping to get a bunch more events in before this happened but I knew it would. Part of all the experiments I’ve been doing involve having low amounts of front grip. Why, I’m not really sure. I feel like I’ve been able to manage low power and low grip very well but it got me into a bunch of trouble this time.

recapandcrash002

With the lack of power I wasn’t able to keep up with my friends I was tandeming with. An unexpected spin meant that I was just far enough behind that they had just enough time to come to a complete stop as I was initiating into the turn. Add in that low front grip I was talking about and you have a nasty lock up into t-bone with frame rail 50/50 smash.

recapandcrash003

Anyway, it happens. At least I got a few good pics from friends before it happened and I finally took video. Youtube is free so that’s where the video is haha!

Of course after the crash my water heater at the shop would decide to spring a leak while I’m at work.

And the last few pics of her ever looking like this again. Photo credits go to Beau Bridges for Minus Darkslide and Jeffrey Buchanan at Golden Automotive Photography both of whom are on FaceBook!

After getting that all washed up and making sure she will complete the drive back to Phoenix, I went exploring. The bay is crazy…

I’ve got some really good ideas for the new shop too…

Nothing like a chill environment to hang out at before doing car stuff.

The Unknown

I don’t know where this is going. I know where I want my business and drifting career to go, It’s just that I am surprised at every turn. I can’t possibly thank enough the people that have supported me to this point. I hope that I can give back to everyone in the near future!

Even I know when things are out of hand. Chassis sparks and fuel line don’t mix. Next project is an enclosed fuel rail from the rear firewall to the front. I should probably run the brake lines through there too.
