Drift Talk: Bodyshell Addiction
We have been accused of talking nonsense on here sometimes and not addressing real issues in the drift world. So today I want to talk about something very real a problem that has a lasting impact on a drifter’s life.
Recent studies show that 1 in 2 drifters suffer from this terrible affliction and that number has risen dramatically since 2015 with many back street dealers popping up to further the problem making these shells easier to get hold of.
I write this blog to raise awareness, I suffer from this affliction and I thought it was about time I shed some light on it, in the hope that I can help just one person. Below are some of the symptoms of this addiction to look out for
Buying bodyshells when there is nothing wrong with your current one.
Planning your next shell before you have finished your current build.
Owning at least twice as many shells as chassis’s.
Having at least one clear shell in your house and still looking around for more.
These are just some of the symptoms of this problem to look out for, there are tonnes of people parting with hundreds of pounds on a regular basis to fuel this addiction. In recent years evil companies have latched on to this problem and have released products to further this addiction, body kits, spoilers, engine bays and many more.
If you feel like this is a problem you have, we want you to know you’re not alone. Yokomuki RC are currently trying to set-up a support group to help people in a similar situation to us. We are setting up a just giving page called “this money won’t go on bodyshells honestly” so we can fund our support group and hold regular meetings where people can discuss their problems.
We are here for you, you are not alone.
