Dusting off the old S13

I’ve had her for over 11 years now n she had gone through many incarnations to what we here. I have taken a 2 year hiatus in competitive drifting n she has been under the covers ever since.

A drive (drift) around the block was all it took to convince me that I won’t be changing a thing about her…then again the Nitrous system will have to go to accommodate the new rulings in drifting!

9 students braved the heat to join our first Sync Optima Drift Academy (SODA) held at one corner of car park A in Bukit Jalil while  a whole bunch of  others were battling it out at the other side during the Fento-D drift session!!

The 9; which includes 3 Singaporeans, 1 Autokhana ace  ,3 die hard Silvia/180sx enthusiast and 2 relatives ( which one so happens to be a girl), had to go thru 8 hours of grueling drift  tutorial which basically covered everything that needs to be known about drifting.

Towards the end of the day,  a  ‘fun course’ was set up for the participants to show off what they had learned.This caused a stir among the spectators as what was showcased wasn’t what you would expect from  first timers!! Obviously these people are a talented bunch which I had the hornour to be able to pass on what knowledge that I know, and all I hope is they carry on drifting cause at the rate they picking up stuff, they would give the seasoned pros a run for their money pretty soon!!
