Tokyo Drift in Rosamond

Today marked the first day that I took CAR to do real drifting. There was a 626Drift  drift event at good ols BALCONY.

The car had all the parts necessary for a drift, so I figured I’d take it out.


NECESSARY gas station cell phone photo in the early morning.




Then I met up with some dudes because driving up there with no other cars around sucks.



It was SO cold and there was snow on the surrounding mountains.



I tested out my new HYPNOSIS helmet.




Then I drifted.


The car felt pretty fast compared to the 14. The clutch was a lot more crisp and grabbed hard.

the new Star Spec Direzzas in front were SO damn sticky. I had to asjust my driving to make up for this wild factor. COOL tires though. sure thing.


Then I got the hang of it and did some killer drifts.


Then mid way through the day it felt like it began cutting out in drift midway through 2nd.

Ok wonderful.


Then, smoke kept coming from the engine. Seems like some brake fluid would spill over and fall onto the manifold and make smoke. Cool.


Then it started being stupid on idle and would stall out often. Ok, what the hell.


Then for some reason, I clipped an apparently STRONG cone and bent my fender, knocked the N1 vents out, and tore the bumper a little.





Then I pulled into the pits and the power steering was WHINING real bad, so I fed it lots of ATF.


Ok cool, let’s go drift again.

Drifting works, but the idle doesn’t. It falls and remains weird and dies out time and again.



Fuck it. I quit.

day over.


Then after that it wont even really idle, so I hope for no bumper to bumper traffic cuz that would SUCK.


The end.




Then, when I finally got it home, I dreaded the stop….. but then it idled fine.



I don’t know.


Anybody know how to fix cars?

    probably wasn’t brake fluid

    i have the same problem its the valve cover gasket when i beat on the car oil drips onto the exhaust from the valve cover

    i bought one just haven’t put it in yet

    idle problem can be so many things…. i’ve had to deal with the same thing on my s13

    it comes and goes

    first thing to check is your timing with a timing gun

    check if any spark plugs are fouled or and oil in the holes

    check the boots are in good shape and coils are fine (my car came with a deteriorated boot inside my spark plug hole and caused the coil to arc early and misfire)

    check injectors for leaks

    try taking the maf off…

    cars are serious business man i’m sure someone on zilvia will come over and walk you through it

    pretty much everything that soap said… if it wasn’t the vacuum hoses then it was the valve cover gaskets, and if it wasn’t the valve cover gaskets it was the IACV, and then when I drained the coolant, jello pudding fluid. blown headgasket!

    dang… those don’t sound TOO hard to do.

    Maybe I’ll take it to DriftSpeed.

    Welcome to shitty S13 fenders.

    Bummer about the motor. I dunno. My car used to do that. I just let it keep doing it. hahahahahaha.

  11. had to be said says:

    that wouldnt have happened to millen….

  12. bhworld says:

    Fuzzy_mc from Amsterdam…. I know that. He is not me and I am not him.

  13. Tony.A says:

    BH “Anybody know how to fix cars?”
    CJ “u should get FC BH”

    Sound like a plan!

    That would be one cool FC though.

  14. had to be said says:

    glad to see you can take a joke. power on BH

  15. swayray says:

    If the problem still persists after using 91 octane and if your compression is still good, perhaps you may have fouled your spark plugs…

  16. bhworld says:

    Well, I think I’m gonna do 2 things to begin with.

    1. change it out to the stock timing.
    2. check the compression.

    I realized today that the whole car smells really weird. I cannot put my finger on it though. It just smells really bad. Maybe something burnt… Like, pistons or something.

  17. Ninjabread says:

    Throw the KA out and get ichi-go sr20!!!

  18. bhworld says:

    No can do.

    I’d love to, but it aint gonna happen.

  19. castro says:

    drifting sucks anyways.

    And balcony sucks when its cold.

    wanna start doing that Parkour thing ? Heard its big in Europe!
    If we got on now, our join date will be old enough they can’t call us Fanboyz!

    wish I had the funds to go. Looked fun.
