Yes. But even if I threw my car back together for this, it still wouldn't work.

Ooo bummer Teddy, we've never met but I've been watching you :). We were hoping Team Mulsanne would show up strong but sounds like we're out of luck...cars are all taken apart. What kind of work are you doing?

tdcxalexander

Quick question for everyone.

Would you guys be interested in a singles competition in addition to the team drift competition?

Gauging interest here, there would be prizes too.

newb_driver
01-13-2010, 01:24 AM
i think you'd get more entries... more ppl would wanna go.. bigger crowd..

Teddy
01-13-2010, 02:32 AM
What kind of work are you doing?

All new suspension work and building a complete motor from the ground up. I will come to support and make a film.

At the moment it's unlikely we'll have a singles competition, teams are looking great!

Right on Teddy, makes the film. You may find that there is a reward in it for you. We may host a video production competition after the event is finished, all who make videos (film in your case) would submit their work and let the online community vote on which gets the prize and glory as winner. Sound good?

Cool, it'll be nice to have some grip 240s out.
We will be running CW including Phil/Lost Hill and the Star Mazda turn to really get the most out of the West side.

All the grip groups are pretty even around half full.

The grip event is kinda my thing, so if anyone has questions, send me a PM or [email protected], no question is too big or too small!

Man I haven't been on here in forever haha.

what kind of entry speed and maintaining drift speed are we looking at? I saw the video...how fast was that guy going...and I saw him in 3rd...is it a 70mph entry??

tdcxalexander
01-26-2010, 06:46 PM
Entry speed is variable, depending on how much of a early entry you are comfortable with. You can enter mid 3rd or high into 3rd...maybe even 4th! it's up to you really. BTW, early entry is the clincher on The Offramp

There are 22 grip spots left, we could use some more! Tell your friends!

There is no limit on teams!

May I have a passenger in my vehicle for the grip event? It's her b-day. :)

Calebok

Yes, passengers are fine.

Media may as well, but in-car cameras must be mounted and not handheld.

01-27-2010, 12:07 PM
For the grip guys, what tech requirements are needed? What helmet certification and stuff?

Calebok
01-27-2010, 01:01 PM
I'm working on a tech/schedule/basic rundown sheet that we'll post and email to all registered drivers.
Tech is fairly basic and obvious. There is not an inspection, just a personal checklist.
Helmets must be Snell M/SA95 or newer.

You're signed up with the Z right? I'm looking forward to seeing it in person. Rad.

articdragon192
01-27-2010, 03:25 PM
Yup, the Z32 will be on track. Was wondering if it could be included in the show when I wasn't on track since the car qualified, but was told it probably wouldn't work out too well, haha. S'all right though, id rather be on the track if I had to pick and choose :)

88 Ford Escort???? I gotta see this. Sleeper with some nitrous turbo concoction?? :p

Looks like we'll have a little battle of the Z- vs the S- chassis. :) Would be awesome to have 6 or 8 more of each.

Is there a cage requirement for the GRIP event and is a motocycle helmet OK to use? I'm ready to send money as soon as I can verify that my car is eligible to run. It just has a stock interior with the OEM seatbelts.

azndummie
02-03-2010, 10:59 PM
is there going to be timing on the west loop grip?

Calebok
02-03-2010, 11:17 PM
There is no cage requirement for grip. Stock interior is all good.

Snell motorcycle helmets newer than 1995 are fine. The year should be on a sticker inside, either 1995, 2000, or 2005.

I have two Large helmets if anyone needs to borrow one.

There will not be timing, but I will personally clock a few laps for anyone that asks haha.

Final grip list

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g260/xhatesdriving/Newgriplist.jpg

We will need 6-7 volunteers from the Intermediate group to step up to Advanced. If no volunteers step up, the fastest 6-7 cars will be asked to join the Advanced group after a couple sessions.

Likewise, 2-3 Beginners will be asked to join the Intermediate group.




Drift teams are looking good, we have 2 more teams from Socal right now fighting time and hustling to get the cars done. I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised with the team drifting turnout!


I'll see everyone at the track, and keep in mind that Buttonwillow will be charging a $10 entry fee for EVERYONE, including drivers.

Take care

Whats up guys. If you are interested in purchasing full resolution (21mp billboard size) photos of your car please email me or pm me. Its only $20 for all the photos and I got lots of photos of everyone and I can't post all of them. Just paypal me at [email protected] and tell me what car you were driving, if you have a plate number that helps too.

I know its not much but I always cover events out of my own pocket so it helps with gas and equipment costs wear and tear.

You can check out the rest of the photos here: driftfotos.com (http://www.driftfotos.com)

If you don't see your car I posted some more photos here: West Coast Team Drift Championship (http://www.worlddriftseries.com/teamdrift/drift2/)

Thanks for putting together an awesome event! I was supposed to film the whole event (I was the guy with the giant video camera), but some stuff happened and I wasn't able to :cry:. But oh well, stuff happens.

Here's a short video of basically most of the footage that I took. And be warned, I basically filmed 2% of the event and this is mostly so that my footage doesn't go to waste :/

Super Fail at filming the West Coast T.D.C. @ Buttonwillow on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/9667413)

What car were you in? Towards the end of the day, I got super comfortable with the track haha. Its a shame Joel had to leave early. Would've loved to run with him and see how fast his car is haha. Can't wait for the next one. Ill need new front tires for sure. I was fighting a bit of understeer at the limit which hindered my driving :/

I wish I had more time, but my tires got cut due to my fender. Next time for sure! The S12 will definitely be more prepared now that I know the conditions.

And a big thanks to all the grippers who came out! I hope you had fun and got more than your money's worth.
Next time we'll be a little smoother, but I hope this event goes to show that there is still room in this stupid market for safe, cheap, driving FUN. I did the grip event. Hell yeah I got my $$$ worth! As far as it running smoothly... I race with the NHRA, PSCA, and WCHRA. They wish it went this smooth!! Great job people and Thanks again!! I'll be back. PS Is it asking to much to add a drag race venue to this event?? ;) LOL
