The last blog focussed on what we have been up to with MDS (midlands Drift Society) which has taken a lot of our time recently, however a few things have been happening in the background.
Sadly RC drifting has taken a back seat recently as we have all had other things to concentrate on, Lee Lee has rid himself of the dad wagon and got himself a tasty BMW again, Garf has taken residence at Santa Pod & Three Sisters lately (we think he is still alive) and I have been busy with The Common Snob (shameless plug for our t-shirt designers).
We did manage a visit to Soul where the whole team was together including the legendary Slideshow Bob. Me and Lee Lee had a very enjoyable day testing out the track at MDS which is shaping up nicely. We dropped a new t-shirt design inspired by Slideshows 2016 world’s tee which we are pretty proud of.
Introducing Rebel Drift
Rebel Drift is a theory, a state of mind, a movement, Rebel drift is for the people who don’t conform or follow the crowd. Rebel Drift is about connecting with that version of yourself that had a tatty touring car running balls out around a car park somewhere. Rebel Drift is whatever you want it to be, there are no rules just the freedom to do exactly what you want, whether that be running mega boost and throwing it in like a mental case or being that silky smooth son of a bitch who swoons around the track looking effortless. RC drifting is about having fun whatever style you adapt to RWD, CS or 50/50.
We are not taking a swipe at the people who take the hobby seriously and want to immerse themselves in various styles and techniques, we take it seriously, this is however a swipe at the people who seem to have forgotten that essentially they are grown-ups playing with toy cars and just because you have a very expensive toy car doesn’t make you any better than the next guy with a cheap toy car.
Luckily in the UK at the tracks we visit everyone is very helpful and friendly, most people try to help you get to a good level as it benefits everybody. Sadly there are a few people who give you the death stare if you misjudge a corner and give them a love tap.
Be proud of those battle scars, be a REBEL…..
Cheers for reading, stay sideways…
