New drift partner!

Yes, you heard me alright, when Louis (a.k.a Tofu) left Sibu 2 years ago, I was back being a lonely drifter again.  But not until last Sunday, I finally ‘poisoned’ Johnny in getting his turbocharged AE86 to burn some tires! Hell yeah babeh! LOL!

Last sunday, I had a little drift showoff at Sibu Agape Center, right after that I actually got a sms from Johnny asking if I wanted to have some fun, having just drifted on a big empty car park with my adrenaline still high, of course I replied yes.  We then agreed to meet up at the old airport runway in 30 minutes.

I arrived at the place earlier, so I parked my car and decided to take some pictures:

Noticed the tall stand in which my car is parked right underneath? That’s actually the stand where the R/C drivers stand and maneuver their cars from the higher view.  But for that particular day, its me and Johnny’s pit area, and I did changed my tires there, Sibu’s sun very hot ler… have to take cover mar… HAHA!

And here is a picture I took on the R/C track from the top of the stand:

It looks good doesn’t it, too bad it ain’t BIG enough for some decent drift action, sure you can do some donuts and figure 8s around it, but it’s still too small IMO.  On the other hand, the track is somewhat damaged, but I swear, I was not the culprit! :-X

Here’s another shot I took from the top of the stand, this is the runway, good for doing some high speed choku dori (winks at Louis, LOL!):

This is also the place where I drifted later on after Johnny’s arrival.

Anyways, long story short, Johnny came and did 1-2 donuts, he was shocked that the few seconds only drift was actually enough to peeled off some of its rear tire treads (well, I was shocked as well!).  Without any spares tires available, he decided to just park and watch me play.  I finished off my left rear tire first, got it replaced and off we go again, this time I’m letting Johnny drive.  Again, he was doing only donuts as he finds my non-power steering is a bit hard to control, I guess it does need some getting used to, my steering sure is stiff!

I had Johnny in my passenger seat and we went further up the runway to try some bigger drifts, with the hot blazing sun above us, the tires gave away in just 3 drifts, here are some shots:

Funny thing was, we were having too much fun drifting that we forgot to bring along my tools and the spare tires, that means we had to walk 2-300m on foot to the R/C track area to get the tools and tires, LOL!

After I got the stuffs on Johnny’s car, Johnny let me drove his AE86 down the straight, I must say, his turbocharged AE86 felt like a beast compared to my 16v NA! T_T

Anyhow, we got back onto my Charmant and just when I was jacking up the car and getting the tires changed, I didn’t noticed I had misplaced the jack, not until I lowered down the car and heard some cracking sound, followed by some paint peeling off the side skirt of my Charmant, I had a look and then OMG!

O fuck!

O fuck!

Now that’s definitely not a small damage!  I know, I know, I’m such a f*cking IDIOT!

Johnny just giggled, and then in an attempt to try to make me feel better, he offered me to drive his AE86 down the straight again, I quickly grinned and accepted the offer, man I’m too easily pleased, LOL!

At the end of the runway, we decided to have a little photoshoot with our cars parked together, actually it was my idea as I wanted to share some “fame” with the almighty AE86!  My Charmant must be really happy too! ROFL!

Alright, here are the pictures that I took with my crappy handphone:

I’m just thinking really, that how our cars would’ve looked much better if they were photographed by somebody else, like Victor for instance? *hint hint*  ^_^

Anyways, you might be wondering what makes me think that Johnny’s my drift partner?  Well although he only did some donuts (less than 5 I think), but its the sms that he sent me that night that got me ROFL:

“Shit I suppose not to play but you poisoning me back.  Had been two years not playing car”

Above is the exact sms message that I received when I was about to go to bed, see? see? My effort pays off, now Johnny is slowly coming to the ‘Dark’ side as well, hahahaha~~!! Go go Sibu drift! ^^

  4. […] Sibu Dorifuto! The infamous Sibu Drifter wannabe’s blog « New drift partner! […]

  5. When it’s drifting, you sure make a long blog. Turbo cars kill their tires way faster than NA. Hence you still see me in NA mode. Tires not cheap wei!!! I miss that long runway. Remember choku dori down it in second. To think of it, I think it’ll look way cool in 3rd gear. Come in 3rd, then when nearing the s turn at the end, down to second and flick it again the other way. You should aim for that. Put a tire near the right turn as a guide for outer apex. hehe…

  6. tofu: Yeah, I still remember when we used to discussed about that haha! Now the S turn area has those containers placed all over after the fun fair was over, so can’t drift in there anymore, until they decided to move those containers soon.

  8. Amar: yea yea on the lookout for rims similar to yours, cheap cheap but wide wide. 😛

  10. Mine cheap, lebar sikit but small!! X(

  11. tofu: yeah, those fun fairs are a waste of space, they should spend those money on motorsport events, such as autocross or drift etc, I bet that can earn more kakakaka~

    Amar: your current rim is very cool already, looks good! Slowly upgrade ler…hehe ^^

  12. […] schedule plans on Sunday (the runs that I joined were all on Sundays), as I sometimes prefer to go ’someplace’ else to drift instead of being one with the nature, LOL!!  But to be honest, I do enjoyed the […]

  13. […] Johnny first brought his NOS’ed and Turbocharged AE86 to Sibu many months back, it was all good times, the car was simply amazing, and the power… […]
