Thanks to Tony for organising this one at short notice :ymapplause:

Another top day out at Santa Pod, great to catch up with you all. Today we had a few zeds on the strip, one in the drift school and a healthy turnout in the zorg area. Here's a few pics:

Sorry I didn't get a chance to come over to the stand and say hi :ymsigh: I was going through tyres like they were going out of fashion so spent most of the day jacking my car up, taking wheels off, taking them to the tyre man, bringing them back, putting them on the car, then going back out again. x12 tyres are in the big tyre heap in the sky b-( Anyway I got out of the pitlane once to go and grab a burger ~o)

I think I spoke to a few of you, Tony for sure. I took at least one guy out from one of these forums in the car - made sure he got a few extra laps for his money :coolsteer)

Great pics btw the way :-bd

The only drifting yours will ever experience, Paul, is the snow up against the garage door!! :))

Ok what's the story with Boards M then? :)

One thing I found a right pain in the arse with regards to changing wheels (compared to the RX7 drift car) is wheel bolts rather than studs. Holding a wheel, trying to line up the holes via a spacer into the hub ~x(

Have you not got item #2 in your toolkit? If not, you can buy similar items off eBay to line the wheels on to the hubs...

I do have that, wondered what it's for L-) So you just stick that in the hole to help line the wheel up?
