Lone Star Bash is my favorite event of the year. Without a competition to worry about, it is a relaxed two days of hanging with friends, rad tandem, partying, and fun! Put on by lonestardrift.com it has become one of the biggest grass roots drift events in the nation to hit up. Drivers come from all over the country, and even beyond! We had a driver from Canada in his JZX90!
Here is a fun little video of the Tyler Cox Memorial Missile Car playing around at a drift play day thrown by Fabricatedmotorsports.com. The pilot of the car is me, Aaron Losey. Nothing would make Tyler happier than great tandem at a drift event, so I strive to make sure I drive the car with a happy heart and a heavy foot. The day was cut short when the car popped another transmission, but we had a lot of fun with the car all season.
Test day one of Tyler's Missile car went great! If you don't know what all this is about, head over here: http://fabricatedmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=3144.0 for the very interesting story behind all this, with literally a hundred pictures. If you are a car nerd I think you will like it : ) I think Tyler would have absolutely loved the S14 drives right now, even though I am not quite sure if he would like how it looks. It is a definite improvement over what it looked like before, but nothing like what his old competition car used to look like!
The missile car in question is a white S14 that has a stock SR20 with an added T28RS, injectors, tune and maf. A really simple setup. It has coilovers and adjustable control arms, but the alignment is way off at the moment, however the car still worked amazingly well! The car puts down maybe 310 whp and is a rocket ship!
The red Chaser was piloted by Josh Buckley but is owned by Anthony. Both are good friends of Tyler. My name is Aaron and I am the one that has been cranking away on Tyler's old project cars trying to get them going, and now that I have the white car going, it is a really exciting turn of events!
