  3. The thing with drifting is its too expensive to join in nowadays

    I used to be very involed with the cruising and streetracing scene in the midlands
    Yes it was unlawfull at times and dangerous at others

    However drifting came across for our american cousins and wa an instant success
    It was a succses however with those interested in self built cars to nail around honing there skills on industrial estates late at night

    Welded diffs and cutting weight out of the car were the first steps and two or more cars got written of learning
    It didnt matter as these were £300 - £500 cars and the engine was worth £400
    Nowadays its gone like all the good stuff in life and its commercial buisneses that run the scene
     
  4. I did it in 2 Nissan Silvia turbos, it got to a point where I was spending silly amounts breaking a car and bank account drifting. I quit, bought the Camper.

    Scene tax has killed joining in most sports, same with the aircooled DUB scene, campers/beetles etc are around, lots of them about but cost too much to buy.
    I often wonder what I would be able to afford if I sold the Bay.

    I have the van, an Audi A3 Tdi, an '88 Golf Gti and a Honda Blackbird.

    Approx 50% of the above work at any one time.

  8. I love it how you say just bought a truck from the scrappers. 9 out off 10 cars over here are just that scrap.
    Watching some USA car program's when they refer to major rust, we just drool over here thinking that's just surface rust.
