STL! Beanie

Workshop Winter Wear

It’s getting seriously cold here in the UK as winter takes hold and working on cars while shivering is no fun at all. To try and help, I’m pleased to announce that Street Track Life beanies are now available! A little larger than some beanies to ensure a comfortable fit, they are cuffed and feature the STL! logo embroidered on them. You can pick yours up in the shop.

Adam's FC3S

An FC3S with a Difference

If you’re a drifter, cast your mind back to November 2014. How much drifting have you actually done since then? How many drift cars have you owned in that time? Do you think that your skills have improved in a little over two years?

For a lot of people (myself included), the truth is that you’ve probably spent more time building, buying or selling drift cars over this period than you have on track. That’s not to say that Adam Maciejewski’s FC3S Mazda Rx-7 that you see here hasn’t spent a huge amount of time undergoing work; far from it in fact. He has, however, been working flat out ever since the drifting bug took hold to ensure he can get to whichever circuit he can as much as possible.

Make no mistakes about it; it shows in his driving.

Three Sisters Drifting AE86

Winter Drifting at Three Sisters

I’d not touched my C33 Laurel since returning from the STL event that I ran at Driftland back in September. This was mainly due to me having smashed up both the front and rear bumpers and subsequently leaving them with Adam off of Retroshine/StyleCase to try and repair.

After a quick check over on Saturday morning (which led to the discovery of a small hole in the intercooler that I fixed with liquid metal, along with a broken release bearing) I drove the car over to Adam to pick up the bumpers and attempt to straighten out the front end. By Saturday evening, the Laurel was looking somewhat similar to how it should look thanks to a mammoth effort from Adam and his dad to straighten out the bumper bar and headlight mounting points. Seeing as the car was working fairly well, I decided to book on for the drift event being held at Three Sisters the following day.
