ETS Drift Ute – In action

In the last post I outlined all the prep-work that went into this drive, being its first “in public” drive I thought its only fair that I bring you some in car footage, as the final stages of the Dream Build Drive documentary get pieced together this will act as a teaser for whats to come, don’t worry about chasing any other footage from this event because Dream Build Drive will leave you full to the brim of the best action footage that may ever surface of the Hilux doing what its built for. Till then here’s what I was busy doing last Sunday!

ETS Drift Ute – Manfield Raceway NZ from Engineered To Slide on Vimeo.

It took me most of the day to get my driving up to scratch to meet the demands of the chassis, Manfield isnt like Hampton Downs and the power delivery was nothing short of aggressive, its like it still wants more power, I never like to drive on the limiter, but I felt that I had to at some stages. As the day progressed I hit the first corner faster and faster, I still needed to go faster but its difficult knowing whats gone into the build and whats at stake, Im happy the Hilux lasted all day with no real issues, the alignment is just by eye, infact its all over the place so I am looking forward to setting it up and heading back on track to start tuning everything in.
