Drift Bible Owners = professional D1.... not.

Okay - I have the Drift Bible. I learned from it. Does that mean I'm "mr. professional D1GP I eat Tsuchiya for lunch badass superstar 240SX driver"? Negatron...

...with that in mind, at least I can drift. I've learned it, and I spent the time, effort, and some $$ on it. The "Drift Bible" was helpful in getting technical about how each drift is done, which didn't replace, but ADDED onto what I had researched for the past 5 years or so. Therefore I don't think I'm considered "drift illiterate". Now then, what the hell am I talking about?

EXAMPLE ONE (real situation):
Lately I've been coming across kiddies going up to me at like the mall or the supermarket - whatever, asking if I drift or if I want to drift against them because "they have Drift Bible". And then they start throwing out "side-brake" and "power over" talking about it like it was fused into their brains, but then when I ask "so what do you drive?" I get this response:

"...when I get my license I'm getting a Silvia RPS14 and I'm gonna drop a SR20DETT in it... what? What does your car have?"

OH MY GOD if only I was the violent type... LOL

Anyone experience this "n00b" phenomina?


EXAMPLE TWO (real situation):
Went with a couple of friends to Autobacs to check it out, and they knew NOTHING about drifting until they saw "Drift Bible" on demo. They liked it, they bought it, I thought it was good because they were willing to learn and get into drifting. 2 weeks later, one of them (after watching Drift Bible countless times for over 3 days) jumps a curb and does about $3k damage... in his mom's 4-sp auto Infiniti sedan. Now he has to sell his FC he just bought to pay for the damages... and he's saying that it's kind of "my fault" because I'm mr. pro drifter (read example #1) and I should have warned him about drifting... an automatic... sedan.. in a residential area...

right.

I would love to move out by you. Maybe I will just visit. I have only met one person like this.

A 300zxTT owner. He asked if I had a SR and I told him no. He shot off a rasberry (you know ffpppppppt rolling his eyes). I told him either start your car and lets play or shut the **** up. I told him first turn I will drift around you and drop you like a bad habit.

Straights he would kill me.

I hate suckers. That is why I drive a truck. No one talks **** to me in that. They also think I am a big joke.

Drifters don't drive Ford Rangers.

I picked up my Drift Bible actually on the day of the first D1 down in Irwindale Speedway. All I heard that it was in english, so I wanted to check it out and hear Tsuchiya's funny dubbed voice over. Not a bad deal either $20 bucks flat =D. Later I found it selling for $30 bucks.. lucky me.

Well anyways along with my story...

I go to school this one day and one guy I know comes out of nowhere going "hey Ken [me] dude I can drift! @ 70 degrees down my street" I was like really wow [sarcasm in my head] This guy is full of it.

[Him]
"The drift bible you let my watch...mayan I memorized it and now I can drift!"

[Me]
"Thats amazing.. mayabe you can show me when you have the time? So what kind of car do you have?"

[Him]
"AE86."

[Me]
"wow... just like the video eh?!"

[Him]
"yep.."

I don't think I have to explain much anymore... I just wanted to sock him...

I let my friend barrow the DVD because he said he wanted to learn, so i said OK why not. Two days later he asked me to take him around in my car and drift, so i went to this construction site that i usually go play at and took him on a few turns. He looked scared and ready to crap his pants. Anyways a few days later he called me up aking if i can meet him, he was at the same construction site i play at with his 96 integra smaked right into a stack of wood used for the houses under construction. He blames me and my drift bible.

I think that gets filed with the countless, "...can I drift with my Integra/Civic/Accord?" questions.

..and if someone brings up that old Option 2 video where some guy was supposedly "drifting" with a primer black 1st gen Civic hatch, watch it agai. He wasn't drifting. He was dragging his *** all around the track LOL
