righty theres only 3 good ones that came out they switched the main lights off just as we got goin so you couldnt see anything but black lol
The lower end of the drift site but what you cant see is the massive 30m straight so you can wind it up take it sidways out into the carpark hold it then flick it the other way around the small island then back up the the larger area at the top of the photo but you cant really see it and the 2 cars mine and me drift buddys TC3 civic also with a 10 turn in and as you can see it is drizing so the tarmac was realllly greasy as you can see its pretty open and we want to get those mini cones used in football practises to lay out a drift track when we get there to make it harder
Oh yea this TC3 is a cossie killer along that 30m straight i beat a ford escort RS turbo off the lights along the straight and he was gunning it. that wasnt using drift tyres lol

slightly off drifting, a guy at our local RC indoor track made mini like apex bits to go on the end of the plastic track parts, made like real rumble strips all sloped an all proper real to make it more like a race track and i was the first car out on it in practise and i was goin round speeding up each lap as i got into it they put 3 large ones on the small straight to make it harder to over take so i came hurling onto the straight forgot it was there went straight on into it acted like a ramp took off twisted sideways rear left wheel slammed down car flipped from back to front a few times on the rubbers went onto it roof and slid accros the floor the first hit ripped the rear left hinge pin outta the ally wishbone by stretching it so i spent the rest of the night with it falling out so i decided to fix it by smacking it really hard against a brick until it was small enough to use again and it worked god bless ally lol. sorry story over
