Normally I take all my photos on my Canon G11, but I left it at the house so today’s post is taken with my iPhone 4.

Formula Drift Rnd 7 Finals

This past Saturday was Formula Drift’s season finals at The House of Drift Irwindale Speedway. I was able to cap the last four battles of the night. The video below only has a few runs of the epic action so enjoy. Also Congrats to Vaughn Gittin Jr. for capturing the 2010 Formula D Championship! Can’t wait till 2011 season kicks off!!!

GT1 Commemorative Edition Corvette

New GT1 Vette came in to CAPD today, had to roll outside to capped some pics. Here is some background to these commemorative edition cars.

Chevrolet used the 12 Hours of Sebring race to show off the new Corvette GT1Championship Edition. This makes sense considering this limited edition is commemorating the Corvette C6.R’s victories in the GT1 class of Le Mans series racing.

The point of the GT1 package is to make the street Vetts look like the race-only cars. Some details of the package include C6.R-inspired graphics featuring Corvette Racing “Jake” mascot and driver flags, ZR1-style body,full width spoiler, chrome wheels, and special engine cover with carbon pattern and yellow Corvette lettering. The colors available are yellow with black trim or black with yellow trim.

E-Dog Designs

Recently I stopped by my friend E-Dog’s place to catch up and see what projects he had going on. E-Dog (government name is Eric Michaud) is an extremely talented builder, painter, fabricator, and just plain good dude. Truly a inspiration to myself and other artist around the globe, his DIY approach is motivation enough to build anything. He was pin striping a  Schwinn Stingray when I came thru, so I capped a few pics around the garage.

His personal car is a 1966 T-Bird and it’s super gnarly, you can’t miss it on the road, the anti freeze green with flames and a purple top is a stand out. I was unable to get a proper photo of since we were in the garage on this night.

Customer car E-Dog is getting ready to finish up.

E-Dog sent over some pics last night of his car, these photos only give you a glimpse of how much work is done. And done 100% by his own hands!

Break Time Maisto Monster Drift R/C Battle

Not gonna lie working for a die cast company is pretty fun. Today we had a random attempt at a tandem battle with the Maisto Monster Drift R/C. B-Rad and myself loaded up some batteries and smashed the controllers. Not much tandem action, but still fun for sure. And with Formula Drift season ending next month, these R/C cars will have to hold me over till next year.

The Monster Drift R/C are available at a store near you.
