DWYB website : DWYB - Drift What Ya Brung
How many tyres do i need ?
Lots - rule of thumb as many as you can fit in car. There is nothing worse than being at drift day with a working car, empty track and no tyres
Where can i get tyres from ? Rent spare rims ?
Contact the chaps @ MINT TYRES.COM
Can my mates come out for passenger rides ?
How much does it cost ?
It costs £60 in advance per driver
Is it fully booked yet ?
Once full i will post up 'Fully booked '
Help it has sold out - what do i do ?
We hold back 10 tickets at every event as people often do not turn up. Advance tickets are £60 - Pay on day £70
What will the weather be like ?
Check - Farmers Guide Weather Forecast
What happens if it rains ?
DWYB will run regardless - you will use less tyres and more petrol
I want to have a go at the EDC 08 track but not sure about it ? HELP!!!
Just ask one of the marshals who will hold back the queue and let you out for a few laps at your own pace
I cannot be bothered to read the 1st post so i'm going to ask a question that has been covered in the 1st post. I need the post count !!
Please do not be shocked if you are teased as a result. Its all about the seat time , not the post count !1!11!!1
Do i need a welded diff / Fancy JDM 2-way ?
a diff that locks both wheels will help - however its not vital for you to come along and have FUN
Do I need lots of power/ Stage6.9chip/ SuperDuperHybridTurbo/ 2JZ
