|My relationship with the vert has been complicated. I originally purchased the car early in 2020, and vert hastily prepped it with the help of Dan King over at 223 Auto. My first event with it, the car was not at all set up properly, but that was okay, I was brand new and had a ton to learn. It sat on very smoked maxspeedingrods coilovers, had a stock 2.93 differential that was welded, and it overheated every few laps. I tackled some of the smaller projects like sorting the cooling system, and swapping in a welded 3.91. Finally got some ISC’s on it about halfway through the season, and things started to look up. Towards the end of the year I was consistently linking courses. The off-season heading into 2021 the car got a full cage, an SLR Ultra kit, and an M50 manifold conversion. All of this helped to make the car safer and a more effective drift car. I spent the beginning few months of 2021 showing up very early to events to catch the end of the Team Oneil drift school, where I was fortunate enough to participate in some of the “open track” sessions. These were mostly for the students, but it gave me a chance to give some ride alongs and do some of my first tandems. After two events I got bumped to A group at my local club NEDCO, and spent the rest of the year running doors with all of my homies. The last event of the year I tagged a wall for the first time, which pretty much ruined the rear end. The car went under the knife again in the off-season leading into 2020 for a custom rear tube job. 2022 was spent honing my skills and trying to install more “driver mod”.
Moving forward I would like to participate in more local competitions and drive some other tracks. In preparation for this I have been putting together a turbo motor for the car, which will be managed with a link ecu, a 3076 turbo, and much more. To keep up with its progress, I’d appreciate if you’d check out my YouTube channel! There are edits of events, build videos, and some bangin (real) VHS edits. If you have a minute after that, also feel free to check out my team 223 Drift, which has other ISC supported drivers.
