    I enrolled into UTI a few weeks ago. I start on April 20th. 420 I know lol. Anyway, they had Formula Drift Day yesterday on the campus so me and a few friends decided to check it out. None of us are really into drifting but it was a free event so we went...

    Here's a few pictures. Sorry they are so small. They are from my phone and my phone sucks lol. When I stretch them they just get blurry lol.

    The schools big ass garage...

    I'm not into drifting so forgive me if this is old news or that everyone knows already but the guy was telling me that to qualify for Formula Drift, the car has to come from the factory with RWD or AWD. You can take an AWD car and make it RWD and still qualify but you can't take a FWD car and make it RWD or AWD. So I asked him about the TC. Apparently the JDM TC comes with AWD so the TC was able to qualify. They stuck a Supra rear end in it and viola(sp?)...

    Right when I take the pic, this retard steps right into my shot...

    It was :) My son had tons of fun at the dyno section. He kept plugging his ears because each dyno pull is so loud but he loved it. I've never pushed liking cars or engines on him but when we leave to go check out other cars, he kept bugging me that he wanted to go watch the dyno pulls some more. Maybe it's in his blood and he'll end up a way better builder than me ^_^

    51 weeks. My graduation date is 4/10/2010. My goal is to get into a manifacturer program, specifically BMW STEP. If I get into STEP right after graduation, then it's another 27 weeks of school lol. I'm not limiting myself to STEP but they are just my number 1 choice right now.
