Stoneback’s Formula Drift S14 Ready For Livery

purple-s14-geoff-stoneback

As 2014 Formula Drift rookie of the year Geoff Stoneback makes the long haul to Long Beach for round 1, we thought to give you a quick preview of his 2015 look before it goes in for a fresh new livery. Right off the bat, you can see the new Enkei Tenjin Tuning Series Wheels. Looking fresh man. As far as under the hood, Stoneback will be running the same LS7 7.2 set up as last season. Looking forward to seeing what livery Geoff and the guys at D-Magic put together. See you in Long Beach. Photos after the jump!

Odi Bakchis Goes Testing

Odi tests the ARK Performance Hyundai Genesis and also his S14 for the 2015 FD season. He will be driving both cars this year – one for overseas events and the 240 for US events. Odi finished in 4th place last Formula Drift season and I have a feeling he will be in the running for the top spot in this time around.

I Will Break You – Formula Drift The Gauntlet

aasbo scion tc at formula drift new jersey wall

They call it the Gauntlet for a reason. It’s a track where real automotive combat goes down. Cars break, wreck, catch fire, and only the strong survive. By the time the event is wrapped up, the track looks like a mini war zone / junk yard. Parts are everywhere. The rails are bent, tire pieces everywhere, broken bumpers, wings, etc. Even the media guys and some fans don’t leave un harmed (sun burn). This years Formula Drift round 4 at Wall Speedway was no exception. [click to continue…]

Into the Pits of Formula Drift Miami

fdmia_1

Formula Drift Miami. My title for Round 3 was crew for Nate Hamilton. My duties involved changing tires, mechanical work on the car, and working on pit lane ensuring that the car was ready to run. Due to the track layout, pit lane only offered a view of cars launching from grid, initiating drift, and quickly disappearing from view around the first corner. This means I would be seeing minimal drifting this weekend. Although this doesn’t sound ideal, I have learned that grid is an exciting world of its own that not many get insight into.

Formula Drift Atlanta has always held the reputation of being a high energy event. Not only did Round 2 fulfill this stigma, it went beyond these expectations in every way. The fans, weather, and driving were all absolutely insane.

Chris Jeanneret Formula Drift Speed factory Honda S2000 at Long Beach Blue Enkei NT03+M Wheels

We had the chance to take a few shots of Chris’ Speed Factory S2000 Formula Drift Car this past weekend. Chris was not able to get the car running in time for round 1 but we’re looking forward to seeing this S2k at Road Atlanta! He calibrated with Speed Factory this year, who is known for 1000+ hp drag racing Honda’s, so we can’t wait to see how it squares up against those V8’s. I’m sure Chris will have the huge Honda fan base cheering him on throughout the season. Awesome to see a Honda back in FD – We’re also stoked on those blue wheels – 18×9.5 Enkei NT03+M custom powder coated blue wrapped in Falken tires! Check out the photos and spec list after the jump! Feel free to share them with your friends.
