VegasDrift Practice Event 4 May 2014

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. Team 4-Banger

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.

1JZ In and Out

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!

Yao’s S13 1JZ build update

So it has been a while since Yao has put a update out on his build. This build has been going for a while now and is almost near completion! Here are the pictures for the update. All the new fabrication and installation was done by Las Vegas’ Jesse Hanna. This includes the rear bash setup, fuel cell system, motor, etc. The cage, stitch welding, tubs, and 1JZ mounts were done by Forest Wang @ Get Nutz Laboratories here in Las Vegas. The car is looking like it’s going to be a monster and hopefully will have this thing put together and tuned within the next month.

We really tried to make this car dynamic in terms of being reliable and easy to fix. We went Vband on pretty much everything and all of the hoses and turbo clamps will be held on with Vibrant connectors and tbolt clamps.
