Talladega Shake Down Run!

Hey all! Finally got Derpy out on the track and BOY WAS IT A BLAST!!!

 

Blew the turbo up though, LOL! Yeah, that happened.  I feel it HAD to happen, however, because if it didn’t, I wouldn’t know that she still needs work. I’m the kind of person that if it runs, I’ll race it. You can even see after losing all boost I still get out there and beat the crap out of her until she completely loses power and I get called in.

 

Soooo much fun out there, I’ll hush now and let the video do all the talking!

Slowly But Surely Coming Together! New Cage Work

Got my car dropped off at Team 1 Motorsports to get my cage modified so it can conform to SCCA/NASA spec. The long and short of it is, a 6-point cage is perfectly fine, but it lacked the necessary cross brace and harness bar to get things up to code. That said, all of that was added and the results are so awesome, I can’t wait!

 

First, Jon (my fabricator and mechanic) got the tube notched and ready to weld.

 

Cross brace tacked into place and fitted. All that is left from here is to complete the welds and get the harness bar in.

 

 

The man is SUCH a genius with this stuff. He makes it look SO easy!

 

I can’t wait to continue with the roll cage project. We have ONE thing to do before we continue the cage. I’ll let you know what that thing is once all of the pieces are in place.

 

The cage will go forward with rear-strut-tower bracing and door bars. Then we MAY do a halo X-Brace . . .we’ll see.

 

 

Thanks so much for viewing!

VLOG 4: Time Lapse Road Trip!

Filed under: Photos and Videos — D.Adams Drift @ 11:08 am

Howdy all! David Adams here again! This time with a very fun addition to the VLOGS!

Vlog 4 is a road trip from Alpharetta to Myrtle Beach, a cool little 6 hour hike. The camera dies towards the end so it got cut short but you get the gist of it. I’m hoping to do more of these in the near future for you all! I had a lot of fun throwing this together and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Thank you so so much!
