I couldn't think of a better way to end the drift season than with a Traction Optional event. Before the event even started I remember hearing from TO members that we would run out of tires before we ran out of seat time. I can say now that they were right. TO did an awesome job with keeping the starting line going. I almost never had to wait. With all the seat time I had access to, I was able to learn a lot and began to try and push my car harder and faster each time. Not only was driving a blast but I enjoyed giving people rides all day. For some of them it was their first time, which really made the runs through MIR fun.
With Get Out and Slide being the last event of the drift season, I knew I wanted to shoot a video. So my intentions were to shoot video when the other classes were running so I could still drive, but an hour into the event TO had already started Hotlaping and merging the classes. I was able to shoot some before the event had begun and luckily I had my boy Coop willing to man the camera while I was on the track. All in all, it was a great event!! I can't wait for next season!

We got the chance to attend East Coast Fitment Festival held by Stance Nation and ISO this last weekend. Despite the long drive from Memphis, we all had a blast seeing new cars and meeting new friends. We spent most of our day behind the vendor booth so the pictures we got were limited. There were too many clean cars to count. Here are the few we did manage to get.
We got the chance to hang out with Tony, Corey and Alexis from Stance by Definition most of the day, definitely cool people. Towards the end of the day we decided to have a quick little shoot.
Corey Nguyen's Si is dropped on d2 coilovers sitting on 17x9+17 rear and 17x9 +25 in the front BBS wheels.
This Accord belongs to Tony Nguyen
It's dropped on Megan EZ street coilovers sitting on 20x10 and 20x11 +25 Varrstoen 113.
Definitely one of the cleanest TSX's weve seen around. This one belongs to Alexis Vazquez-Lopez.
It's dropped on Function Form Type 2 coilovers sitting on Tiffany Blue Work Equips 18x10.5 +18 front and 18x11 +23 in the rear.
