Seattle!!

As i start packing for round 5, I feel my heart thumping harder. Why am i so nervous?

I don't think I am fully recovered from Round 4 yet. I was hit pretty hard. Last week, I took my Corolla to Adams Drift to get my mind off of it. And I thought it did but it just seems to come back and taunt me. I am in serious need of tandem practice.

I need a missile. in a hurry. I need to hurry and start working on my missile project so i can practice tandem with Daijiro (he just recently picked up a missile S14 too!). It is not easy to find practice time with the competition RS-R Scion Toyo tC because we don't have spare parts. If we blow a motor, we are pretty much done.

Every morning, I watch videos from Formula D Seattle 2008 to learn my competition's different driving styles so i can attack tandem as soon as practice starts. I will be landing in Seattle Thursday and will be going straight to practice. Since we began doing Top 32 this year, it has become less important to practice solo runs as it is much easier to land a spot in the top 32 than the limiting top 16. This year,the competition focuses solely on tandem runs, atleast as I see it.

This weekend should be veeerrry interesting as I take a different approach to drifting, all over again.

I think you need to just chill out and have some fun. Go smoke a bowl with ross or something, you start loosing your self when you see drifting as such serious business.
