Don’t think we’ve ever done anything like this before but we actually had a birthday party at the track! Talk about a ‘themed party’! Haha. Phil wanted to drive his S2000 on his birthday so he decided to rent out the entire Apple Valley Speedway track to have some drifting fun with some friends! Most of us just went out to drink, hang-out and watch the boys drive but the guys that did drive were not messing around. Cars get thrashed in this episode and we didn’t even have cake at the end! Before the party however, Der and I head down to Orange County to check out a car meet with some of the most random assortment of cars that we’ve ever seen!

More Build Updates & A First-Look At Sara’s New Livery!!… CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #25
Is it October already? What a weird year it has been. Even with the heatwave still hitting California pretty hard, things have not slowed down at all here at the shop. We talk about the recent developments with Andrew’s TSX lightweight project, Phil’s drift S2000, and something pretty special shows up from Russia for my IS300. A few days after that, I meet up with Sara to check out the newly-completed livery on her IS300 drift car…
The Exceed S2000 Hits The Track For Some Testing!!… CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #24
With the S2000 all prepped and ready for some drifting, we head to Apple Valley Speedway in the middle-of-nowhere California for a private test day. There are still some parts we’d like to install on the S2000 but Phil really wanted to get some seat-time in the car before further changes. Unfortunately, AVS has no night-time lighting and the sun is coming down extra early these days as the seasons change so we didn’t get as much footage as we wanted. However, the car is running great and we had a blast out there!
The New S2000 Project Car & An Update On The TSX!!… CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #23
We’re really starting to have some fun now getting fully adjusted to this summer heat and figuring out ways to keep ourselves entertained here at the shop. On this episode we introduce you to our friend Philstar’s S2000 project that Yuta has been tinkering with the last few late nights. The TSX is all together and ready to head-off to our friend Ken Suen’s shop for some custom fab-work but before it leaves, we decide to get it on the scale to see where we were in terms of reaching our goal weight of 2500 lbs. How close are we and is it even possible to get a CL9 chassis down to that weight while keeping it streetable? Watch and find out!…
