Paul was doing really well, but IMHO he was completely outclassed.
I think by driving with higher classed cars he improved his skills ALOT just in those two days though.

Devin ruled all/

Haha thanks Drader, I was severly out gunned.
But I thought what the hell why not, and Andrew needed a top 16 so I stayed in pro.
It was fun, the track was tough, that entry requred huge balls and power to match!!
Thanks for posting some pics Andrew!!!

Devin rules all!!
sick driving!

Looks like a pretty weak crowd turnout. Thats too bad. Wish I could have got my sh!t together in time to make it.

Devin ruled all and didn't evn make top 8 :confused5:

Ya'll know it wasn't lack of driving becasue I was totaly killing it in practice. I switched to the worst tires ever for qualifying and it all went to hell. I'm buying something decent for RD4.

ya, there should've been another one-more-time. You nailed the entry on your last run and clearly put pressure on the other guy.

Maybe it would be easier if Andrew wasn't the only judge? :sleep: :ack: :puke:

Maybe it would have been easier if I had a race suit and sponsors. At least I have a real car now.
You guys do know this has nothing to do with driving skill :shocked:

that was a bad break devin - we all thought you had it when you nailed it on your last run. Whoever was in the red 180sx (or is it 240sx?) that made it into the top 4 lucked out, he shouldn't have even been in the top 8....

1 judge (who wants to make sure his friends make it through) makes Dsport = fail.

It's been like that with Dsport for a while now...Just like last year's second Edmonton round where Conroy took a podium finish. All respect for Conroy and all, but he didn't deserve to finish that high at all when compared to the competition. It's too bad...sponsors and race suit = win in Dsport.

the top 3 are already decided. it will be like this until the end of time.
Mostly because they're really good.

Battle for 4th and 5th is where the fun stuff is at!

Yeah drifting isn't exacly huge in calgary, thats why crowd turn up is horrible.
But I guess it's a lack of advertisment is the Cause of it?

Andrew didn't do any advertising really.
In Edmonton its his home turf and he does a lot.
It was still a great turnout. It just looks packed in edmonton becasue the stands are 1/8th of the size.

Ok, well, I drove against the red 240 hatch in top 16, he has probably 100 hp more than me, I kept up around the bank even clutch kicked it and tryed to drift the bank behind him, then I pushed him thru the infield. All I could see was his driver door.
When he "chased" me I thought he had spun cause he was so far behind me, and he made it thru!? I was super confused when they called his name:cryin:

Thats my rant, I never expected to make it far, but that just seemed wierd?

they seem to be putting "Smoke Factor" as the highest point generator, lol. On the other hand he did have angle.

Paul + Te27 + sr20det = srs bzns!! :thumbsup:

I agree with most everything in here.

They seem to give better points to ppl who make mad smoke.
They need more than one judge.
Top 4 is kinda boring because in the end, it is the same 3 guys every time. Who really cares what order they end up in.

What happened to corolla rob? I wanted to see more tandem corolla action.

It's boring for us. But the spectators don't see every event.

Rob...
danger to manifold!
His intake fell appart at the weld. It's a b16 skunk 2 intake welded to a T3 bigport adapter. It turns out it was heavy.

We always hear quite a different story from the Corolla guys and that makes me sad. In every other drift scene out there Corollas are lauded for doing the same **** as the other cars, whether they make smoke or not. Here it seems all the Nissan guys hate on Corollas. Many of them don't understand and don't want to understand the point of drifting without massive power.

One judge is damn annoying. There's no doubt in my mind that many of the top guys deserve to be where they end up, they are great drivers. But there have been plenty of others where drivers are just left scratching their heads on why the other guy made it through. A single judge just isn't able to see everything that's happening, especially not in a tandem battle. There are way too many things going on at once. Having several judges helps to balance that out.

I agree Andrew, he did have good angle. I was sacrificing angle for speed all day just trying to keep up with those guys.
It was fun!
Nissan= e brake and cant drift without 300hp
