Screenshot 2016-03-08 12.14.33

We noticed a bunch of comments last week about how Thumb Drift looked cool but it was missing from Android. Well, the game is now over on the Android platform and available for download. Top tip Android users, you can use the code DRIVEN to unlock the Street Driven Mazda RX-7 owned by Hert right away. iTunes users will have to drift to unlock this awesome car in the game. More info on the game and a video teaser can be found here if you missed our original post.

The engine found inside the car is a Mazdatrix 3-Rotor with a dry sump system and a Garrett GTX GT42 Turbo to top it all off.

Our friends at Street Driven Tour tipped us off to this awesome new games in the iTunes store called Thumb Drift.

Love to hear what cars you have unlocked or how you like the game. Another update coming soon once I dig into the game.

The Truth Behind the Closing of Irwindale Speedway


I keep reading a ton of incorrect information online about the impending doom of Irwindale Speedway so I talked to several people close to the situation and built this story. The rumors of it all being a fancy ploy to sell tickets is flat out not true sadly and soon our beloved Irwindale Speedway will come crashing down from the Los Angeles County map. Here is a timeline of what happened and why the structure is still standing to this day. In fact, last season at Irwindale I helped produce an awesome tribute video to Irwindale Speedway with Mobil 1 that should be released shortly.


This first blip of news came to my attention in October 2013 just days after Michael Essa narrowly won his first championship in a BMW E46 chassis. A friend of mine sent me a link from CurbedLA indicating that a real estate group in Pasadena called Lindom Company purchased the 63.47-acre site of the San Gabriel Valley with plans to repurpose it. The company Nu-Way Industries sold the land to them who purchased it in 1966 and built the very racetrack that stands before us today.

NeverSlo 98 Nissan 240SX LS2 Formula Drift Car with Enclosed Trailer [BUY THIS]


The best drifting car deal we have seen in 2016. A turn key Formula Drift Nissan for $40,000 that includes a 20 foot enclosed trailer. Basically, if you buy this package the only other things you need are a license and a drivers suit. You would have a hard time building this car for that cost and that doesn’t even account for the trailer. I expect this package to be gone by the end of the week so sell the last of your crumbling GoPro stock or liquidate your parents 401k so you can become a future drift star. Check below for all the spares and build for the package.
