FINALLY Got to Launch The New Web Site, Check It Out DAdamsDrift.com

It's not supposed to be anything fancy, just a way to keep my sponsors, friends, family and most importantly, my fans up to date with what I've got going on with my car. I don't have much on there now, just a few pages of riff raff, videos, pictures the norm. As time marches on, I'll update it regularly and put results from events, tips, tricks and advice for beginners, modifications, sponsorship information, and the sort. Basically, it'll be a simple way for those who are coming up in the drifting/motorsports world and even for those who have already established themselves, (whether you be drifter, autocross, road racing, rally, time trial, or whatever) to come by and check out the cool stuff that makes grassroots motorsports so interesting.

Check it out, here's the site:

www.DAdamsDrift.com

Once again, I'm still working on it, give me a few weeks to catch up on it completely and we'll have it jumping with up-to-date information.

Thanks for checking me out guys and gals!

Yeah bro, the SN-95 is such a horrible chassis for drifting, it's really bad, but I'm making it work the best I can with limited funding currently. When I start dropping the real money into it, it'll be much better. Luckily it's got the power and torque I need, so I can focus on building the suspension and chassis to cater more towards actual driving, not just quarter-mile stuff.

Remember to keep at it, if you truly want sponsors, you HAVE to be active. You can't sit around and wait for them to come to you, you HAVE to go to them and you HAVE to sell yourself well. A good driver who isn't a good salesmen about himself isn't going to have as many sponsors as the good salesmen who is just decent.

Think of it like this, when it comes to sponsorship, it won't happen to you or for you, it happens with you. Make it happen, and you'll love the benefits. But prepare to work HARD, I bust my *** every day emailing and calling potential sponsors, I've had formal meetings, even a few meetings that were pretty much an interview.

Prepare for ultra late nights, lots of lost sleep, and be prepared to spend full price to get the attention of the company you're vying for. A lot of these big name companies will gauge your interest and participation before even looking at you twice. Even then, they may only cut you a discounted rate on products and services. You have to make sure you're at EVERY event, every show, and that you display the ability to promote and sell the product or service you have sponsoring you.

I've done 12 events this year and I'm still flying WAY under the radar of where most businesses are looking. I don't do car shows and that hurts me a lot. I basically have to rely on companies who have made their money with the show crowd and want to step over to expand into another venue. Drifting, especially with my car, allows for me to not only reach out to the import tuner and grassroots racing world, but to the domestic guys who thought these cars are only good for drag racing and the occasional stop light and highway brawl. Many of them are very surprised to see an SN-95 out there getting smokey sideways and I (along with the other domestic drifters) have even pulled a few over into the drifting scene. It's a really good feeling.

But yeah, just keep at it, keep pushing more and more and make sure you don't stop selling. You'll do fine!

i ask because i've driven cars with that kind of pedal cover thingies. they are not very safe when the bottom of your shoes are wet because of rain or snow.

Nah, actually they're pretty good, I don't think they'd pass the bar if they were slippery. I mean the last drifting event was a rain event and I had zero problem what so ever.

I'm a hardware guy not a programmer.

I would suggest coloring your tables white and using black font at the very least. The using your background for the table background is very elementary.
I would also like to see you use a solid color image for your links with a "on scroll over" code to make it fresssssh.


Not ******* on you, simply constructive criticism. [I can't help it, mom designs websites and she relies on my ripping them to shreds to help her make it all flow]

I like your information though and it seems everything was well thought out before written.
But you do have this picture of this black guy standing next to your mustang...
