When did you first get truly excited about drifting?
Eh, idk how to say things. But I’ve been obsessed with cars since I was a toddler, then in high school I became obsessed with YouTube videos of drifting. That has been my life the past 14 years , obsessing over every little detail, what noise should the car make, how should the interior look, but mainly obsessing over the driving styles I was looking at, how to be aggressive but smooth, how to control the car with a full balance (gas, brakes, clutch), where and how to keep your hands. My obsession has brought me nothing but good memories, good friends, and most of the life skills I have. I obsess over every little detail on my car. Due to the amount of driving I wanted to achieve and was always limited on a budget (high school kid with 0 help from single parent, even working 2 jobs at times), my obsession has turned into skills. Paint, body, wiring, welding, and just an overall obsession with drifting has taught me just about everything to do with these “drift” cars and how to do it myself so I can be self reliant and accomplish as much as I have.
Ive volunteered for years just so I could be around drifting, I’ve done anything I could just to drive or be around drifting and If I’ve learned anything, is to love doing what you do, no matter how dumb, weird, or stupid your obsession may be. Love it, be passionate about it, set goals and reach them without excusing yourself. Push push push, and just have fun, the most important part, have fun! Don’t burn yourself out! Have fun, meet people, give ride alongs, go different states. Drive drive drive!
I’ve only had 3 cars really, couple shells as spares but only 3 cars I’ve fully got to drive, the hatch 180 type x style, the s13 coupe, and my r32. Love them all and miss the ones I had to move on from - to give life to the others.
