A New Look, A New Location, A New Start!

So we’ve had some interesting times in the Derpy Drift project, yeah?  There have been some crazy years, we’ve gone from heavy blogging to no blogging to heavy blogging to vlogging. It’s been insane! HAHA!
Well, I’m sorta back, and we’ve got a LOT of updates. Firstly, Derpy, as she was known previously, is no more. Much of the livery has been removed and while we understand this will disappoint a lot of viewers, it’s strategic. In pursuing a more focused approach to racing, this move will help open up a platform for support and representation that we feel many will appreciate. Also, the newly-fashionable “stickerless” look is worth giving a shot.

Don’t worry, I’ll leave a nod or two on the car for those who know how this car became a spotlight vehicle in the first place. I have not and will not forget my fans and friends I’ve made over the years. Just because the vehicle is changing doesn’t mean I am.  Time helps us to evolve, not change.

 

I have, regrettably , had to part ways with a few vehicles. The RX7 is sold as is the F-150. Not a fun decision to have to make and it wasn’t for financial reasons, but for space and convenience purposes. I am now located in Carmel, IN as part of some unexpected life turmoil but am doing quite well for myself, so that’s good!

 

My newest toy, to live life with Octavia (my 2013 Buick Verano), is a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata. Her name is Audrey and she’s an absolute BLAST. Every little twist and turn of the modification-wheel makes this car infinitely better than it was before. She handles like a Miata, goes like a Porsche. It’s tough to explain how this car makes life and how well she fills the void while Derpy undergoes surgery and awaits her next event.

I’ll update the blog with pictures and videos as they come to fruition. Hopefully it can be a constant thing again, yes? HAHA!

Anyway, pictures and video!

Derpy, as she sits now:

Derpy as she sits now. Large vinyls removed, the remainder will happen once she’s up here so we can pick and choose, then she’ll get painted 🙂

 

Coilovers installed, brakes (obviously not shown) are installed as well. So she handles and stops better!

 

The cage now has door bars and is fully welded in. There will be a rear cross section added in addition to this.

 

 

Here’s Audrey:

Here’s how she looked the day I bought her

Here’s how she looks now! Not much different but a few additions.  Video first, then pictures ^_^

Rental Car Reviews: Episode 1

Filed under: Photos and Videos, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — D.Adams Drift @ 9:53 pm

Alright everyone, here’s a new segment I’m trying out on my channel. It’s called Rental Car Reviews. Along with GT Channel, I’ll be taking various rental cars and seeing just how well they stack up to their required duties as a rental. If they can survive me, and pass MY tests, they’ll surely meet your standards.

I hope you enjoy!

Renewed My SCCA/NASA Memberships! Aiming For Time Trials!

Those who have known me for a while know that I held SCCA and NASA memberships about 4 years ago but dropped them to focus on drifting exclusively. Well I recently got the itch to do some group racing and time trials (more specifically hill climbs) so I recently reupped them both in hopes to get the best chance of participation as I get closer to preparedness. It’s an expensive journey but one that I’m willing to FACE this time, instead of just talking about it like so many do and never realize.

 

It’s GO TIME

I must offer a sincere apology to anyone who has been following this blog in recent months. I made updates and said more would come but that didn’t happen. I guess life gets in the way sometimes and I seriously apologize for that.

Going forward there’s going to be a lot more updates (can’t get any lower than zero, right?) and more activity going on here. I just got a kick-in-the-pants from the AWESOME Admins over at Equestria Daily and their AWESOME members and followers. I owe them a lot! Updating my blog is very least I can do, I’ll also keep Derpy Hooves the Starquest’s page up to date as well with plenty of updates. So look forward to plenty of content on both pages from here on in!

Thank you all for your continued and growing support, I hope that I provide plenty of refreshing and exciting content for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you again!
