H2Oi 2016: Arrival

I had skipped out on the 2015 festivities.  The traffic and drunk hooliganism from 2014 put me off for a whole year.  Fortunately,  last year was REALLY H2Oi, with constant tropical storm/hurricane conditions.  I didn’t miss much.  Initially, I hadn’t planned on trekking down  for the 2016 event either.  But at the last second I […]

Dip Your Toes or Dive In Head First?

I recently started thinking about the plight of the daily driven drift cars – drivers want to get reckless at the track and shred some tires, but still have to get to work on Monday and pick up groceries on their way home. Those who want to compete and elevate their drift status but need […]

Work, Work, Work, Work

New beginnings for a bunch of us.  It may not be warm enough yet but there is no time to wait.  Show and drift season is just around the corner.   Dave is working on a VR swap and selling his diesel motor. Dan is building and parting out way too many VWs to keep […]

Oktoberfest 2015

Oktoberfest in Mississauga is usually the last meet/show of the year before my winter wheels go on.  That was the case this year again.  Its the last hoorah for a bunch of us, and I was glad to say goodbye to a few people and cars until spring.   Including Dave and his Speed3. Being “Oktoberfest”  it was […]

CSCS Pitts

I have a  bunch of photosets to go through and edit from late last year.   I go to drift events to take photos in the pits.  That about sums up all of my trips to Shannonville.  I feel Overdraftlife has more than enough great coverage of all the drift action.  I like having a look at […]

FITTED Ontario Place

FITTED Ontario Place was a great show.  The organizers decided a second venue  to compliment their Brampton show.  I thought the location they chose worked out well.  Its a central location is much easier to get to than the Brampton one.   I really need to work on mixing up my photo angles.  I only realized once editing these […]

FITTED 2015 via Gill

There are 3 staples in our year.  Eurokracy, H20i and Fitted.  We’ve been attending FITTED for over 4 years now, going back to the second ever Stretch and Poke event at Lakeshore.  We’ve gone from casual attendees to now being able to bring 2 builds and a booth.  This year we had Danny’s 1.8T swapped […]

TOPPDrift Season Opener

Grassroots drifting in Ontario has one major hub.  Shannonville.  Its not the best facility, it’s in the boonies, its muddy,  drivers act like dickbags in the pits but it’s where the majority of the Ontario drifters show up.  The chicken fingers and poutine are actually pretty good though.   Steve, nor Danny nor Devo had […]
