My Drift Slut After a Long Day's Struggle

After some mayhem at Shanonnville. After about 45 mins into the day I already had to change the tire shown bellow lol.

I got about a good hour and a half of drifting today with a good Tandem with DMCC driver Vlad Crown (hopefully pics or vids will be up soon). Crazy, we were getting really close. So close his tire shavings were shooting into my face. Then soon after pitting I got an earfull from the marshall that us ametures shouldn't be tandeming that close .

Then soon after that trouble came.

Picture this, turn 4 (i think?) on Nelson a fast left hand carousel entering at the top of 3rd gear . Flicked it in and holding an opposite lock drift. You can imagine how fast this is. Then all of a sudden you try to straighten the car and no matter where you turn your wheel it keeps going sideways into the grass. ****! My inner balljoint snapped! Bent the tie rod and mashed the fender in with the wheel. Balls.

Journey'd back to Port Perry and picked up a new Control arm. Flew back and replaced it just so the car can make it home.

A big shout out to Rudy (Craz Azn) for the lightning quick Control Arm swap in Pit Lane to get my slut home safe and sound

enjoi the pics.

Don't you miss the days when this E30 was clean? I dont

Pictures of the damage:


The inner balljoint of a 6 month old Lemsforder Control Arm. If you look you can see it broke right at the taper.


The other part of the ball joint.


As a result the Tie Rod bent with all the cars weight supported by the tie rod / fender.


Fender got crushed in from it resting on the wheel. Sucks balls.. paint cracked and all. Time to flare them out


And now she's resting and recouperating in the garage... ****ing slut. I love it!
