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!
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.
The 240sx build is back at a stand still. We are trying our best to get it back together, but other entities are keeping us from doing so.
Yao’s 1JZ GTE had some issues with the clutch recently. After closer inspection, we realized that the clutch needed to be taken out and reinstalled to verify integrity. So the WHOLE motor had to come out just to get to the tranny (tight fit!). JSFab came over to the house and busted his ass getting this motor in and out in one night. Clutch feels amazing now, and there shouldn’t be any problems with that.
While the motor was out, might as well do some upgrades! JSFab also hooked it up on a steering rack relocation to make sure there is no binding at high angles. Can’t wait to get this car out on the track. After the wiring problem is fixed, its dorifto time!
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!
