last weekend we went over to indianapolis for drift indy round 3 @ the speedrome, and it was pretty awesome! representing control freaks was conrad and myself, and several other st. louis area drifters came as well including gru, aled, charlie, his brother clay, and revo.

the pits were paaaaaacked with cars!
driftIndyRd3Pits
some people apparently complained about getting enough seat time, but i didn’t even have that many tires to burn, so i was okay =p

this is edgar’s car, kinda looks like a teal version of conrad’s. siiiiiiickkkkk!
driftIndyRd3EdgarsCar
edgar is the dude who runs drift indy events, and he’s not afraid to yell at track officials when they screw stuff up… quite a stark contrast from the situation we have in st. louis XD i like that!

here’s charlie skidding around in his truck

as you can see, it was overcast for most of the day. looooots of slippery surface, it was good practice for throttle control!

and of course the miata, i loooooved sliding on the banked turn, no lifting, ever!!!

didn’t get to meet this dude, but he was doing good in the mustang

gru, with his drift pirates flag, what a dork
driftIndyRd3Gru
he was actually putting down decent runs by the end of the day, as much as i hate to admit it (i’m still convinced his mustang project is a bad dream and one day i’ll wake up and he’ll have a 240, i hate that car lol)

of course, dustin from kansas. are there any events he DOESN’T go to? seriously..

here’s conrad and chris crane fixing conrad’s tension rod bracket.. it was moving around like crazy… what the hell!!?

this is alex, aka aled (don’t know the story behind that), another st. louis dude that came with us
driftIndyRd3Alex
his driving style is super aggressive, and he’s only been drifting since last october, goooood shit! can’t wait to see him drive more.

didn’t meet this dude either, feel free to hollar at me on the drift indy forums with info about these drivers i don’t know! haha!
driftIndyRd3WhiteHatch

aaaaaand another dude i didn’t meet.. kinda looks like a black version of chuck’s car =p
driftIndyRd3BlackS14

that’s it for this time! all these pictures were taken by conrad’s girlfriend jodie, so, thanks to her!

stay tuned, because we have plenty of footage to throw together a video ^^ i’ll take a crack at it, and i know conrad actually has legit editing software, so we’ll see who comes out on top of the video editing battle!

title kinda explains it all. i’ve actually changed a lot more on the car in the past week, but this is the stuff that looks cool =p

picked these up last week, konig rewinds, 14×7-9
yayKonigs

haven’t gotten tires on the other ones, so i still have the meshies in the back for now. other ones should be on friday ^^

and yah, this thing. it hasn’t been very nice to me so far, but hopefully i’ll get her in line sooner than later.
yay20v
if it looks like everything’s been covered in coolant.. well… i think you can imagine why..

also take note of the stellar condition of my core support, not my fault i swear.. this car was a steal, sue me XD

heading out to the speedrome this coming friday to attend drift indy round 3 on saturday, should be fun ^^

i’ve recently swapped a 20v and a shit ton of other stuff onto my 86 coupe. the 20v’s been fighting me, but i’m working my way through the kinks. if i’m confident in the car by friday, i’ll be taking that, otherwise, it’ll be the trusty ol’ miata.

conrad is coming to drive as well, along with a couple other STL dudes.

pics of this event and the corolla transformation coming soon!

just love how fast they go, and then transition into the smaller tighter more technical area. why don’t we have an actual nice road course in stl, oh that’s right because gateway is retarded

i think the shot of JR’s mustang here where you can hear the motor roaring is the best clip i’ve seen so far that really captured the feeling of power and speed at the recent fd event. videos with only music for audio kind of lose that personal feeling.. at least for me, i can’t get all the way into the moment without the real sounds.

great stuff!
