Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 13: We’re back!

By Tim Kondas | March 6, 2020 |

After a bit of a hiatus, we’re back! Back in November at our last practice day we obliterated the clutch to the point that the car had to be towed home. Then between the holidays, family stuff and new work schedules time got away from us for a couple months. At the beginning of February…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 12: Soukoukai #4 Practice Day!

By Tim Kondas | November 21, 2019 |

We finally participated in our first practice day! It was Spirit.jp’s Soukoukai #4 on 11/17/19. We’ve been preparing for this event for a long time, it was our first time driving outside of a Novice Clinic. A couple weeks earlier I managed to finish up the bodywork, so we were able to finally install the…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 11: Practice Day Prep.

By Tim Kondas | October 28, 2019 |

We’ve been quite busy working on the car since our novice clinic last month! I started out with some body work, I got the passenger’s side almost good enough to wrap, then I’ll move on to the driver’s side. The problem has been getting scheduling and weather to cooperate. At least it’s not critical! We…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 9: From the Junkyard to International Recognition!

By Tim Kondas | August 13, 2019 |

Since my last post the Lemon House team and I have been working on the car as well as our plans for it’s future. I’ve also been reflecting on where we started and how far we’ve come since then. On one hand I feel kind of like a seasoned veteran, but on the other I…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 4: Chizuru Awakens.

By Tim Kondas | May 1, 2019 |

Last Sunday my teammate Nate came over, and we set about rousing Chizuru from her slumber with the help of a new fuel pump. We thought it was going to be just a matter of removing 2 screws and popping off that access panel in the trunk floor to get at the pump, only to…

Make turtle friends, prevent turtle pizza! Please help them cross the road.

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | April 23, 2019 |

Sharing less than 5 minutes of your time can change the whole world for a little turtle trying to cross the road. It may seem as tho they are suicidal or just plain stupid but this is not the case. All too often whats occurred is a road has been built between where they normally…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie. Part 3: Work Continues.

By Tim Kondas | April 22, 2019 |

Work has been continuing on the Z31, slowly but surely it’s coming along. Since the last post my teammate Nate and I have removed the carpet and headliner, and many of the other unnecessary interior parts. It should weigh less and smell better inside now! We discovered a bit more rust than we’d like to…

“Stumper” an explanation for the jeep rat rod thing in the corner of our shop.

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | April 14, 2019 |

This whole project started a few not so short years ago with a relatively simple idea: “After years of wishy-washy feelings towards modifying this car or that, I decided that I may have more motivation and better results making the whole car, more or less… Goals: Handle and stop like a Vette, Look like a…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie. Part 2: Chizuru Arrives.

By Tim Kondas | April 5, 2019 |

So in my last post, I talked about how I fell in love with drifting in the not-so-distant past, and how I planned to start doing it myself. The crucial component is a car in which to drift, so here we are! The fine folks at Roscoe’s had this forlorn 1985 Nissan 300ZX in the…

The drift event through my eyes

By Darden | April 3, 2019 |

The drift event was spectacular. All age groups are invited. I saw people from babies to older people there. Of course, the babies had ear muffs and some other little ones had them as well. All different styles of cars where there. Some rusty and duct taped together and some shiny and sparkle. There were…
