After Proving Grounds I started to think a lot more about getting rather serious with drifting. It's just way too much fun, and the whole Honda scene was slowly becoming a thing of the past for me. I still had my yellow civic which was sitting in a storage almost all year. The flywheel bolts backed out on me on it and caused one hell of a mess. Out of anger with all the major issues that car was having and what little enjoyment I've gotten out of it I decided to sell the car, I wanted it gone so bad I settled for a couple grand less then what I wanted for the thing. This was for the better tho, now I could focus on just the one car, and use the money from selling to civic for some much needed parts.
I placed an order for an AEM EMS stand alone along with an Innovate MTX-L wideband. A bunch of people might think it was stupid of me to order that out of nowhere like this but I have good reason. This is something I can put on the car and use while I work up the funds to afford a better turbo setup and cams, then of course later down the road look at building the engine.
The other big investment I made right away was call up Joe @ 515 Customs to make plans for a cage. I got a copy of the Formula D rulebook to go over cage requirements and drew up a design...That's when it hit me...My stock passenger seatbelt won't clear the cage, i was going to need a harness for it, but I'm not the type to run a harness on a stock seat so I needed a seat now too. I figured this would be something important to have before doing the cage as it would affect the door bar clearance so I quickly jumped on placing an order for a seat and sliders. I decided to go with a Sparco Evo 2 Plus as this will be a little more comfy for a bigger passenger.
