This was a run with tanner against his V8 TRD TC . its what happens when you run out of steering angle .
as of now this should not happen again thanks to Chris at KP-RACE we have some new mods to increase the angle.

I got to do some testing with the new tune in Evergreen Speedway with the locals and guys from KP RACE . the track eats tires fast . practice was good taking the high line is also fun and fast taking into 4th gear all the way around . the crew is flying in today and i will meet up with them at the track thursday afternoon . will we be doing some small mods to the hot pipe to help keep the air intake temps lowered. other than that we are on the right track.
So after the great practice we had on Thursday . it was now time to go out and qualify for top 32 . Thanks to the local guys from vegasdrift Chris finch and Robert Chin for being in the hot pit with me to get the car running without any problems. practice went by smoothly and we continued with Qualifying for the top 32. my 1st run i did push it a bit to hard and ended up tapping the 1st outside clipping point . i know i could of done better , but we still ended up with a score of 74 putting us in number 4 spot in the 1st session of the top 32 . The 2nd session started and we came in hotter and upped our score to a 85 putting us in 11th after the 2nd lap overall out of 45 drivers . We placed our highest for the season so far . as the season progress we are still recovering from round 1 and we are getting back in track . its only getting better. all though I was not still running at full power due to the turbo and heat i wasn’t pushing the car close enough to the clipping points as i wanted . but it was good enough for us to move to the round of 32. later that night Chris Jeanneret from KP-RACE showed up at midnight flying in from Washington . Now Saturday we were ready to roll.
So it all started Thursday afternoon the car had just got vinyl wrap with the new graphixs thanks to scott from Fabulous Graphixs . We took the car to town square in the evening before practice to help promote the event for Formula Drift and meet more local fans for the AE86 signing autographs all. alot of people showed up and it was cool parking the car out in the middle of town . by this time all the other drivers were at practice at the LVMS and I was losing run time But Formula Drift offered a extra hour alone of practice . Practice went great got about 12 runs in for the night was having some issues with the internal waste gate sticking and making boost in consistent . and we ended our night like that . Our chief mechanic was not in town yet till Friday night so the team was making due . and i had to Qualify with out him on friday .
updates on the event will be posted soon
Formula Drift is in town for Las Vegas Round 4 its been a year since they last came and i been playing with the AE86 Setup
Practice was last night the car we having boost issues but was still drift able . I fixed the boost problem and now the car is really tearing it up . I cant wait to run it again . Thanks to Fabulous Graphix they hooked me up with a kool scheme for the car and the car has never looked this clean ever . its going to be a blast . now im off to the track wish me luck.
