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.
Our own Team Verzus driver Zachery “Yao” Hitchcox is participating in a contest at MotorMavens. This build has been going on for some time and is coming very close to fruition. This contest is judged upon the amount of comments and views, basically the popularity. Please help out a local driver by going over to his build thread on MotorMavens using the link below and leave some comments!
Yao’s 1JZ GTE MotorMavens Build Thread
I haven’t put a update here on a while. This is the new progress of my 1JZ GTE build in my S13. Wiring is in progress right now and we are looking like a weekend start time if the stars align. Look for a start up video and hopefully a tune video in the near future.
Forest Wang (Get Nutz! Garage) – Full roll cage, chassis reinforcement with stitching, 1jz engine/tranny mounts angle kit, and engine bay tubs.
Jesse Hanna – The 1JZ assembly and build, full fuel cell system, AN line creation, bash bar (future), oil cooler setup, exhaust build, and intercooler pipping.
