2015 Lone Star Drift TXSL Series for the Budget Minded Drifter

TXSL.DriftingLeague.LoneStar

The guys over in Texas have put together a cool plan for drifting in 2015. The TXSL series is for the budget minded drifter. Pro Am and Pro 2 drifting gets more expensive year after year so the guys at Fabricated Motorsports created a series that goes in the overall direction.

The rule book is setup to encourage the careful purchase of a car that fits the rules, will be fun to own and drift, with as little maintenance and cost to modify as possible. Cars such as E36M3 are now roughly 3-5K for a manual transmission car without major issues, and red top S13 are in the same price range. The goal is that a car with the addition of a few suspension mods, knuckles, racing seat, and a simple cage a 5K dollar will be capable of winning the series.

The event schedule will come out shortly we imagine but while you are waiting for that check out the simple rulebook to keep the cars in budget:

WallSpeedway.WindowFallingout

Brian Ricco lost his rear windshield in his Top 16 battle at US Drift Round 2 this past weekend. Technically we think that warrants a zero in the Formula Drift rulebook but it looks pretty wild regardless. The follow driver was Nathaniel Chen who wasn’t phased or slowed down by the flying glass and drifted straight through it’s remains.
