Hey guys, Been kicking around here for a few months now and thought I should do a brief introduction of myself and create a thread where i can show progress, rant rave ect ect.
Here is My Story haha
Up until this past december i had been ripping around in a '90 240sx with all the basics, SR, Coils, SSR/ Diamond racing wheels.
it started off like this
then quickly transformed into this: SR swap, FMIC, SSR Type C's and dumped on megan street coilovers.
Then the drifting bug hit me, I started going to track days and really having fun with the car. I bought a bucket and some spare sets of steelies and started really having a blast.
Added some oem aero and a wangan wing, Certifying the car for 300km/h+ highway runs down the 401
At this point, Summer 2010, i graduated and got my degree in industrial design. I took a break from design and spent the better part of the summer working for Marketing for GM. I was givin the opportunity to drive celebs for the toronto Film Festival. The S13 got parked for a week and exchanged for a CTS Wagon
It was a REAL treat to trade the slammed, 20 yr old 240 for a 2011 rwd caddy
And this was my office for the next couple of weeks.
had to give it back unfortunately, it was the perfect daily.
Came across a set of diamond racing wheels, buddy wanted a straight trade for my shitty sized type C's, thought id give em a go. I totally regret the trade now. but live and learn. The diamonds were pretty aggressive 16x10+0 front and 16x10-12 rear with a 205 50 on them. I admit it looked pretty cool parked, but drove like ****.
Since I was offered by the Marketing Team to go on the release team for the Chevy Volt. So i parked the car for another 6 weeks, packed my bags and headed for Cali.
This was my car for the next 6 weeks. Techno-tronic.
My job was to tell salesmen about the cars and then do a quick comparison between the Volt and the current leading eco car the Prius.
No comparison at all. but we did have alot of fun Flying around and "autocrossing" the eco cars on our "breaks"
The 6 week tour took me from San Francisco, To LA (quick stop at the Final FD round at irwandale) Then to austin texas. At this point i got bored of flying, and opted to go with the Truck Driver for the next Leg, Austin Tx to Washington DC , in 2 days. It was amazing to see the country. We then finished up in NYC.
Got back To canada just in time for winter..... Joy.
