Stock 350z vs 4.08 geared 350z drag racing action! OMG

Brandon Wicknick and I take our somewhat similarly horse-powered (+/- 15 or so) 350zeds and line them up to see how big a difference gears actually make. Turns out, quite a bit. If you already have a dialed in 350z with coils and angle, I highly recommend sourcing a set of 4.08s to make 3rd gear easy on almost every track.

Not only does it help with acceleration in a straight line, it for sure helps with drifting and makes the z even easier to shred hard in.

Soloshot 3 Optic 65 unboxing / setup and drifting test footage

It's off season now, time to beef up the media efforts for next season. Since I am poor and can't afford a media guy, I took the plunge on a Soloshot 3 optic 65. It wont be able to power stance like jwoodmedia.com, or actually move around the track to sick media spots Larry Chen style, but it sure will get me footage that's not a gopro attached to my car (which has been every video i've done lately). This video is an unboxing, basic setup and test video. I will be making more videos on this thing when the season kicks back into high gear.

Officer Dan does Desert Meihan 2, and Forrest Wang kills everything.



Make sure to subscribe to keep these coming! I took a little late season adventure with my wife, dog and Scottie Fox one state over to visit my Az boys and join in on my first Desert Meihan. Needless to say, this was one of the funnest track setups of have driven and The Track Society (Chris Sohren) absolutely killed it with this re-creation. Thanks for having me guys, you all shredded hard. Paco Ibarra is quite the announcer, Salem Alsaraf followed me like a boss, Forrest Wang chops a flag in half, then steals a pool noodle in back to back runs. George Marstonivic is really good at backwards entries. Side shout to the drone pilots, they slayed!

The 350z was perfect for this course setup (minus keeping up with people) and riding the wall with my GKTech ebrake setup was dreamy.

Valino Pergea 1st time in the USA by team Overstyle! Desert Meihan 2

When a tire company claims to make a drift specific tire, I usually chuckle to myself and go about my business. When a tire company says 'hey we added 4/32s of tread to increase tire life', they have my full attention. Although I won't be testing these tires in this video, I was very interested to hear how they did comparatively via the guys from team Overstyle at desert meihan 2. These guys were running these http://valino.jp/products/pergea/ and they were the first sets in the USA to be shredded. They will be releasing a high treadwear (read more affordable) tire called the greeva which I will for sure be testing.

Cheap drift tire challenge #4: Sentry UHP vs Father Winter

Took a left over set of the 225/40/18s (Kindly bought then trucked down from Utah with love from the Scoundrels) I used all weekend during no coast, and put them to the test against the other tires I have tested. The results were pretty interesting, and show quite well how much track temp has to do with tire wear. Summertime use vs wintertime use was a rather large difference, so further testing will be needed! Relax and enjoy the test.

Officer Dan does Bihoku (Vagas Drift Style) - Spirit of the Streets!

Thanks to Nicholas Dizon who runs Vegas Drift and puts on super fun events like these for having me out to play. Had a blast getting touched inappropriately a few times by some fellow fellows. All the drivers killed it all weekend, and this was a super fun track layout, even with low horsepower.

Peep the quick GoPro edit! <3

Cheap drift tire challenge #3: Antares Ingens A1 vs. My broken heart

Today I  am testing the east coast go to tire, the Antares Ingens A1. These tires certainly look the part, but will they survive our cheese grater of a track? I only have 1 set of tires to test today as the other set I had ordered didn't show up in time for the event, hence, my broken heart...Large thanks to Tim Walsh for the footage and help with these here tests!

Cheap drift tire challenge #2: Westlake SA-07 vs Ironman iMove Gen II AS

We have an unexpected winner this time around, but did they have the gusto to take down the Kendas? Who will win this cheap tire challenge? The Westlake SA-07 or the Ironman iMove Gen II AS? Comment with what tire I should try next!

Both tires are under 150 shipped,  225/40/18, both are on stock 350z wheels, both are inflated to 25psi. I ran the same version of the track, 2 different ways as many times as I could before the tire or car failed.

Keep in mind, these tires would have lasted even longer if I didn't do back to back to back laps and gave them time to cool off.

Seat time 350z gets a sub $15 coolant temp gauge!

7 minute install of my 350z coolant temp gauge for less than 15 bucks. No wiring, no mess, no removing body panels, no holes in the firewall, no tapping coolant lines. How awesome is that? I had most of this stuff laying around, so I decided to actually know what temp the car was getting too instead of watching the needle move randomly. Plus i loaded 16gb of music on her and can now commence rocking the eff out.
