  1. This was at a couple of tracks, was at Penticton Speedway in Penticton BC, then Stratotech Park in Ft Sask Alberta, and Castrol Raceway in Edmonton AB
  2. Alright, so after fucking my car up in August last year, I didn't wanna post anymore photos because it looked like shit, all dented and fucked on the driver side. Here it is in my garage with my friends X100 I have there for winter storage, sitting on some Volks for winter storage. I hammered out the dent a little bit, but wasn't that fixed So I picked up a Port O Power hydralic press or whatever ya wanna call it, and pushed out the B-pillar with it My buddy Gary did a little hammering on the door from the wheel mark And this was the end result

    X pics only!!!!

    When I'm on vacation I just like to daily my JZX to the beach, Maybe drift it a bit here and there
  4. So I just spent the last almost 2 weeks in BC, Unloaded my car in Penticton and had to take it to the beach with the tubes for floating down the channel, Did some drifting Door bashing More drifting Another Podium!!!!!!!! 3RD Place and $500 cash And drove home Also jumped some golf carts, did some boating, wakeboarding, lots of drinking, went to an American Wal-Mart and spent $200 on booze, was a good time!
  5. Check it out I'm on the news!!!! http://globalnews.ca/video/731407/drift-racing This past weekend was Round 3 of the Drift West Professional Championship at Stratotech Park in Fort Saskatchewan Alberta. The track was super fast, the weather was amazing, and I got tons of media exposure! Also got interviewed on CBC News and a radio station! Went out on Thursday to do some testing at Stratotech, before everyone else got out there, was tons of fun, had a RC helicopter doing some filming! Left my car at the track over the next 2 days, so just had to tow out the couch, bbq, tools, etc, Spencer kept his car in my yard for the weekend. Got the pits set up with the Clarion Demo car Had some good crowds out for the day The course starter with going up over a blind corner at the top of 3rd, throwing it sideways and staying on the throttle into a large right sweeper Did some interviews Qualified 8th, and went up against my friend Norm in top 16, after a One More Time I beat him out But during my last run, i broke my axle going off track, so before my top 8 battle, we needed to get the car repaired, and I had no axles kicking around, so we asked Spencer Hogg, and he let me borrow the left axle out of his JZX100 Chaser!! The team worked their ass off and we got it swapped and I was back out on track in about 20min, ready to battle Aaron Day in his LS3 240sx, I busted my ass, but had some slight issues the very end of the course and he had the slight advantage and moved on to top 4, he actually won the event.
  6. Alrighty, so here's the update from this past weekend in Regina SK. The week started out in Edmonton on Thursday night when we went out to Drift West's practice night at Castrol Raceway, and started having some major steering issues (stemming from the wall hit). This was the max angle right, I had full steer left So after messing around with the tie rods a bit, we saw the sub frame was bent pretty bad. So luckily I still had a spare front sub frame at home. We needed to leave for Regina SK 800km away the next day so that night we went to my house and started swapping the sub frame. Got it out and swapped over by about 3 am, After some minor tweaking in the morning to the alignment, we had much more steering angle to the car, so we loaded up and hit the road for flat Saskatchewan. We took my buddies 07 Cummins to save some money on fuel. I even brought a spare diff this time! The drive was very uneventful, and flat, and lots of these haha We got there and had a couple runs but soon realized that I had no power steering on Saturday morning, the pump just had no pressure. I just thought great. Was also having some major shoulder/elbow issues from my accident so it was making it even harder to drive. We called around to every parts store, dealership, anything that was open on the Saturday for a power steering pump for a LS1, a Camaro, Firebird, or GTO, and there was NOTHING available anywhere in Saskatchewan! I was just like shit, I'm hooped for finding one, so we took a couple more runs then decided to pull it off and see if maybe we could rebuild it. During my runs we got a hold of a pump in Calgary Alberta for like $80, only thing is, thats 800km away!!!!! So right then my sister left Regina to head towards Calgary, and my friend Rob left Calgary with the pump to deliver it to me, they met halfway on the highway, exchanged the pump and had it back to Regina by Midnight! So I came back from the bar and the pump was sitting in my buddies truck at the hotel!! Then Sunday morning we got the new pump installed and before the morning drivers meeting we had the car ready to rock with power steering again!!!!!!!!! Went out and the car was working awesome, it was a large oval track with no infield, was a rolling start to a left turn, to manji, to left turn to finish. Track was super fun, and very quick. Got a bunch of runs in during the morning. But then with 45 min to go till qualifying, on the final corner i felt a wheel wobble and heard a snap, I lost all control of my right wheel!!! After we limped it back to the pits, found that one of the bolts securing the knuckle in place to the hub loosened off and snapped. So my buddy Kevin and I got working on the car, and had the bolt out and replaced just in time for qualifying!!! I got out to qualifying just in time, and laid down two sold runs securing me a 5th place qualification spot, and putting me in a bye run for top 16 and setting me against Devin in his 1UZ Corolla. I beat him out in top 8, moving to top 4. I then went up against my buddy Andrew in his Advan FD RX7 and he narrowly beat me out, putting me up against Norm Burwash in his Sherwood Nissan 240sx, who after two solid runs I beat out leaving me with a 3rd place finish and my first podium ever! Limited pics for right now, waiting on more pics from the event. And my new T-Shirts are available: (in white or black) Help support our drifting!! $20 picked up in Edmonton or at an event $25 shipped in Canada $30 shipped to the USA
