    Not sure yet probably the crail day in june if i can get it off. but i dont think the diff will be done by then unless you know anyone that can do it a lot cheaper

    I know what you mean, I definitely need a lot more practice. all I was getting at is that I think I will learn quicker if the car is set up as good as possible. hence trying to find out if there was anything car related that I could do. I completely agree about not needing the 1000hp to drift, hence learning in a 04-DE-Z that realistically has about 260HP at the most. I would love to get tuition but the cost of it at driftland is nearly £400 for a half day. that's quite a lot of money. Guess I'll just need to get @The Chubby Ninja to give me some tips next time we are there.

    Thanks for all the reply's sorry it took a while for me to get back, I think the more I read up on it along with all your replies it's becoming more obvious the Z just isn't ready for proper drifting yet. I'm going to get the diff welded and see how that changes things - it will need doing at some point so figure ill try that first. again thanks for the help guys
  6. Shake Up To Regional Meets

    I have to be honest here and I think the meets section on here is rendered a little obsolete by the likes of Facebook events and WhatsApp. Realistically we probably had the best meet for a while last week in central Scotland, and as far as I am aware that was all because of the WhatsApp group. I don't see any harm in these pages and to be honest, I think once a meet is sufficiently organised, posting them on here gives other members the opportunity to join in. I think if I'm honest the best way to get a meet well sized is the regularity. for example, a once a month meet on a Sunday night once a month. it gives people the ability to plan in advance to attend. Alongside planning it means you can come from further away and know its actually going to be worthwhile - take the Tartan tarmac meets, for example, everyone in Scotland knows they are the last Sunday of the month and they get crazy levels of attendance. 400+ cars on a good day. I am not being critical of the new system, or the system at all, just trying to think of a better way to use it, I really don't think we need the regional subsections at all. I think if you were to have 2 subsections, maybe something for National meets - Modded Nats, Japfest etc. and then a separate section for the regional stuff. just so if I'm looking to get info on a big event - I don't have to sift through lots of posts about regional stuff. I understand that from Kyles point that he is going to struggle to find Irish meets, but again, unfortunately, I feel like that is probably the minority of the users on here - not that I'm saying you don't matter, just its always impossible to please everyone. just my thoughts....

    Ahh thats fair enough.... I don't know if i can send the event and you be able to see it on whatsapp I just had a look at the event and it doesn't seem like there is going to be a show side to it this time. Ill keep my eyes open for the next one that might be of interest.

    I honestly don't know when it last had the fluid changed! i am intending to get it welded but all the drifting experienced garages around me are wanting £200 for it doing...feels a bit much.. so just trying to find somewhere that does it cheaper.... so i haven't really bothered about the fluid.

    pressures are at 30psi fronts 35 rear.. lowered 30mm and got as close to alignment as possible, no welded diff or anything...

    Round 2 will be something similar I'd guess and thats on the 6th of May. If I were you Irfan id just use driftlands facebook for there events.

    Thanks for the reply, I don't know if more aggressive with the flick is an issue, but maybe the clutch kick needs a bit more aggression. it can't be the lock or angle as im not getting that far. it just goes straight as I try to initiate....... Sounds like its something i just need to work through checking everything, need to get a dry day and see if it does the same then........ and if so work through everything.

    Hi Drifters, I was out for a little skid last night (private roads obviously) but it was a bit wet. I don't know if its a lack of skill, poor front tyres, set up, or just the way things go but I was really struggling with trying to initiate. I don't have a working handbrake so was trying to use the flick and kick. but would consistently understeer at anything over 10 mph... Do the Z's naturally understeer? I have my alignment at about 0 toe front and rear, I have 225/40 on the front and 235/40 on the rear. all fk453's at the time..... Any idea's on how to fix it..... I've not been out in the dry to know if it's just the wet... TIA
