Keep Drifting Fun

Off Beat Garage has purchased a second s13 hatch chassis and is preparing it to drift. If you missed out on the preparation of the first chassis, be sure to subscribe and watch as they get the fresh hatch ready to slide. The build looks like its going to be pretty serious with a tube front end – due to some front end damage from a previous owner.

Network A has released the “Ultimate Game of Drift” with Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg. If you re-call, in the last game of drift with Ryan and Chris on Tuerck’d – Ryan lost. This time the challenges are greater and the cars are both refreshed and in their best condition. The action all takes place again at Englishtown Raceway Park home of Club Loose and one of the best drift friendly tracks on the east coast of the United States.

OFFBEAT GARAGE – LEARNING TO DRIFT

We’ve been following OffBeat Garage since he started on preparing his s13 hatch for drifting about a year ago. This is an honest look at what it takes to learn how to drift and more importantly how to drift. With OffBeat Garage you get a first person perspective on what its like to learn. From setting up a car to make it easier to drift to attending the first drift day.

There is a lot of things that make it intimidating to tear into your car to make it a reliable drift car.

Adel has a great perspective on learning – how to drift first, add power later. He has a bone stock KA24de, which he plans on turbocharging later. KA24de-t is our favorite engine setup for a US S-Chassis.

Here is the latest video from Horse Thief Mile:

Sometimes when you are trying to do two things at once – it is difficult to get enough of both done. Case in point, we went out to Grange Motor Circuit for a drift event hosted by our friends at Sparkle Garage – attempting to both drift and film. We did more driving than filming. So we made this “QUICKIE” edit to put out something rather than having the footage disappear into the void. You can catch Will Roegge’s POV camera from the driver’s seat of his KA24de-t s14 and Hertrech Eugene in his LS powered FC RX-7. Until next time, enjoy!

It’s Tuesday, which means a new episode of Drift Garage. In this episode Ryan replaces the suspension on his s13 Nissan 240sx with WiseFab front suspension, BC Racing Coilovers, and ISIS Rear suspension arms. He also explains how the different suspension arms effect your grip, tire wear, and handling characteristics. While Chris and his Street Car Nissan 370Z continues with the installation of his twin turbo setup – addressing the radiator and cooling system. It’a amazing how many layers of components there are on the front of the 370z and the amount of work it is to do a twin turbo install on the 370z. Kudos to Chris and Brian Wilkerson at MA Motorsports for tackling that project.

As always, if you liked the episode or have a question for Chris Forsberg or Ryan Tuerck be sure to comment on the YouTube video and they might answer your question next week in their response video.

Rob Parsons and Always Down to Film have released the first episode of the Chairslayer Foundation series videos. In this episode Ben Conolly travels from the UK to California, USA and gets to drive Rob’s hand controlled 180sx. The Chairslayer Foundation is something we support whole heartedly and we’ve documented Rob’s story in the past. ┬áIf you feel compelled donate to the foundation and help those without the use of their legs – do our favorite thing in a car DRIFT.

FAREWELL – MARK LENARDON

Our friend, Mark Lenardon made this video in 2013 as a farewell to his friends and family on the east coast as he prepared to move to Los Angeles, California to pursue his career as a filmmaker. It seems a fitting tribute to Mark to post this video in light of his recent accident and current medical condition. Thanks Mark for living your dreams, following your passion, and producing amazing work that will continue to live on – along with our memories of you.

It’s been two weeks since the last installment of Drift Garage with Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck. Which means, there is a new episode this week! In this episode, Chris and Brian Wilkerson work on the Fast Intentions Nissan 370z Tial Twin Turbo kit for Chris’ “Street Car”. While Ryan works on upgrading his SR20det with new injectors, cams, and a new manifold/turbo setup. If you have questions for Chris Forsberg or Ryan Tuerck go and comment on the YouTube video for a chance to have them answered in next week’s episode.

Rob Parsons is a driver who exemplifies our ideals. His positive attitude is contagious, he is a talented metal fabricator, and he freaking loves drifting. Rob launched the Chairslayer foundation – which gives those without the use of their legs the opportunity to drive a high performance car. Not just any car, but Rob’s own competition-ready Vortech Supercharged LS powered Nissan Silvia. We interviewed Rob while Linhbergh was taking photos of his s13 in downtown Los Angeles. Then followed up with Rob while he was fabricating a new rear mounted radiator setup and seat rails for his car. Finally, we went out to Willow Springs raceway to watch Rob shred the living shit out of his Nissan after a fresh motor rebuild.

This video is Rob’s drifting story, how he learned about drifting, competed at a high level, had setbacks, over came them, and then saw the opportunity to improve the lives of others in the process.

Thanks Rob for taking the time to do this video project with us. We hope that this video will help share Rob’s story and help grow his foundation – because Rob Keeps Drifting Fun and is an inspiration in how he lives his life.

Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck are back for a second season of their Network A show – Drift Garage. Season One saw the two building an s13 hatch on a limited budget.

This season Ryan is upgrading his s13 “missile” car to match Chris’ KA24de-t s13 coupe. While Chris is building a high power Nissan 370Z to match Ryan’s Scion FR-S. Both Missile cars are now utilizing 2F Performance Super Doof body kits. This season starts with a short episode, but we know the end will be the guys re-match in a game of D-R-I-F-T a throw back to the first season of Tuerck’d.

Who do you think will win?
