    I got some hard plastic drift wheels and tires to put on my TC3 road car, going to go out tonight with some of the club guys to try my hand at drifting.... nothing fancy just need to see what all the hype is about. they going to be doing this all summer at the boat ramp parking lot so I figured I may as well try it out and see.....

    We had our first organized (sort of) drift event tonite, I placed second out of 6 cars attending, we run singly and other drivers score on a 1 to 5 scale, the one with the most accrued points out of 3 rounds was the winner....

    Not bad for the Old TC3 going against some of the purpose built drift machines....

    You had a pretty good groove going there Jam.

    Though, this guy:
    clearly has done that before. He was heads above the rest.
