SODA session @ Shah Alam 18th Feb 2012

We had 8 participants joining us for this session which the majority were our former students from Singapore.  Huge improvements were gained by the end of the day with some venturing into tandem drifting.

Some important basics were often overlooked but were stressed on during this session

Bob was definitely the most improved drifter from the bunch.

Tips were given throughout the day

Francis is certainly getting familiar with his cockroach mobile and is getting pretty consistent with his drifting

Great to see the participants leaving with their car  panels and bodykits still intact 🙂

Long Term Review : Liqui Moly Ceratec .. So far so good!

It has been almost 9 months since I  poured a bottle of Liqui Moly Ceratec into my road legal drift car . This was during the Ultra Racing’s Drift Challenge in Batu Pahat and I have yet to get the oil changed on the S13!!  Besides the  lack of time as the major reason for not doing so, I have not found the reason to do so. For one; The S13 had only accumulated a total of slightly above  2000 kilometers since the last oil change, which was also when I poured the Ceratec in .However, one should take note that this was 2000 kilometers of hard driving and drifting as this car use to be a regular at MARDI’s weekly drift events ( that place still rocks!!) and two; I did not experience any noise or heat issues related to engine oil breaking down. To put it plainly, the engine runs as smoothly and quietly as it did 2000 kilos ago.

In all honesty, heat is the only quantitative indicator that I am basing this review on as I do not have any instruments to measure smoothness or quietness . However I do know when the  engine is excessively noisy or running a bit rough  which I am happy to say it is not.

So now we know this product works. Next is to see if this product lives up to the claim of continual protection even after 3-4 oil changes. Stay tuned as I get the  s13 oil changed!!

SODA session @ Shah Alam 3rd n 4th Feb 2012

Bob was back from Seattle and in need for more abuse. So six of us got together and did a 2 day intensive training course.


Jeevan and Kevin were there for the full duration with their cokes and smiles

Francis with his, now green ,cockroach survived the ordeal , coming out improving vastly

Bob came out tops with a handful of impressive runs with our  lesson AE86, which he remodelled with the help of the trees and landscape on the first day. Though  still having  to work on the ‘consistancy’ bit ,he was still good.


So with that , we gave Bob a free pass for “bragging rights”  with the audience of one…Jeevan .

Glad the two days helped  out with everyone’s drifting and it does goes to show that it doesn’t have to be a circus to practice…eh Bob? 😉
