Drifting, Yooper style.

Postby Nsquared97 » Sat Dec 10, 2011 6:41 am

So we have been getting all sorts of the glorious white stuff lately, and I wanted some pics of my E30 in it's natural element... getting slideways.

You can really see in this pic how well the mudflaps work, practically no snow buildup on the rear of the car.

Yeah. I love all the SoCal guys that think they have it great 'cuz it's still 65 out. They have no idea what they are missing! Well until something breaks and I have to fix it when it's 10 degrees and snowing...

Wow, those mud flaps do work really well. Maybe I'll pick some up.
We haven't gotten any big accumulation yet this year where I'm at, but I can't wait. Our cars are SO fun in the snow. I've driven around for hours burning half a tank of gas just sliding around every parking lot I can think of. haha.

Pretty much all of ours is melting off too. This has to be the lamest winter I have spent up here.

I haven't actually. Being a Tech student I get to use Ripley for free, and Ripley itself is 10x better than anything downstate. Plus I am still rocking straight skis, which are terrible on ungroomed snow.
