    Got a buddy here in wheeling that just built a Mazda truck with a 4g63 in it to drift.

    Up at Summit Point Raceway they have a huge drifting event in December. Yeah its a long drive and its cold but they always have a huge turn out. I was there one year and learned alot. I didn't drift just hung out and look at the cars.

    I'd like to see your friends truck in person. I've been looking at rwd 4g63s for a long time. Do you know if he just used the trucks bell housing and an rx7 transmission, or did he go with a Bill Hincher housing and something else?

    Speaking of Drifters of December... is anyone from this area going? Its a total hike for me. A few people I know from way up east may be there. I'd like to give my truck a go, but its not really ready for a whole lot and I'd be driving it out, drifting it, then driving home... still too undecided about going. At 75 bucks... even if I only got 2 laps at each road course it would be worth it.
