Carbon LV Magazine has released their May issue that includes some great write ups and coverage of the Las Vegas auto scene. It’s a great publication and we suggest you take a look at it and subscribe when you get a chance. There is also a great spread of Team Verzus driver Zachery “Yao” Hitchcox. Take a look and see!
Vegas Drift once again put on a great practice event at the LVM Speedway. Good times with some great people.
There was a team tandem mini-comp which Yao and Gray competed in. Team 4-Banger ended up coming out on top. Team members of Team 4-banger were Edwin Anguilar, Bobby Genson, and Mark Tecson.

Was also a great event to shake down Yao’s RedVelvet13. Found some issues which are about to be taken care of, but here are some pics from the event. Big thanks to all the media that comes out and takes photos and videos.

Vegas Drift ProAM Round 3 was another great event put on by Vegas Drift. Yao was competing, but due to some technical issues, was not able to participate in the competition. Here is a shot from the event with (from left to right) Rob Gray, Erik Elder, and Zach “Yao” Hitchcox.
The problems with Yao’s car are minimal and will be back up and running for the May 4th Vegas Drift practice event teamed up with Import Face Off.
Here is some pics of Team member Zachery “Yao” Hitchcox’s red velvet s13. Great event with new paint job and a fresh tune.
Tuned at 422 whp and 436 lbs of tq.
Also Wiring Specialties will be sponsoring Yao and Erik Elder for the 2014 season!
Finally got the car on the road again. It runs decent, but I’m definitely not used to an S-chassis. We button up the car and met up with some friends to head out to the Wednesday night car meet. So here we are sitting with Forrest Wang’s street S14, Ross Petty’s R34 GT-R front Stagea and Ray’s S13. Hopefully everything is all good for the next VegasDrift practice event on July 13th.
Brian Saip did another great job at VegasDrift ProAM Round 2 on March 30 2013 by placing 7th in the round. This is impressive seeing that it is his first season in ProAM. He has been getting a lot of seat time and is making the Team Verzus name proud. He is currently in the top 8 in terms of points for the season and we are very interested how he will do in the next two events. At this pace, he may achieve his Formula D Pro License in his first season (no jinx, knock on wood)!
Round 3 of Vegas Drift ProAM is scheduled currently for June 1st, if you can make it out to support our teammate on his quest to podium, please do!
Brian Saip did an amazing job today for his first drift competition. He has been preparing a lot for this competition. There has been a few problems with the car that needed to be ironed out. Every drifting knows the pain of building, building, building, and rebuilding a car until it works the way you want it. Even though the baby blue LS1/6 S13 was not performing optimally, Brian still pushed his way to 11th in qualifying and ended up 8th overall. Very good results considering the 40+ drivers and the first time he has competed in a official Formula Drift ProAM competition. We wish you much luck here from your team, and hope you keep up the great work!
Here are some photos from the event.
So in Team Verzus right now we have about four cars in major rehaul status! lol. Good news though, is that all of these projects will be coming to fruition within the next two months. So after that, please believe there are going to be a lot of updates with pictures and videos of events. Team Verzus will be at theXtreme Speed Track Events on Saturday for drifting. We will be doing some in car help for the new drivers as well as helping out Extreme Speed running the track. Please come out if you can! Check Facebook for more info, and if your interested in attending go to their website in the links section on the side of this page.
Its going to be a very interesting second half of 2012!
Luigi ran into a small snag at VDTT01 (VegasDrift Test and Tune 01) on Friday when he had a slight collision with the wall. Overall the chassis is fine, but now the front will either need to be tubed or completely redone. The LCA on the passenger was bent and so was the Inner tie rod (pic below). Luigi is going to take his time and take this crash as a reason to upgrade and overcome. Dont be discouraged Luigi! its merely a flesh wound 😉 Much love from your team and just let us know what we can do to help!
