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