Australia Drifting GP round 3
On the podium
Flying over Coolangatta
The Exedy s15 had its debut and its first ever track day at Mallala Motorsport Park back in 2013 and the team was pumped to be returning!
Unloading at the track on the Friday.
Saturday morning was an early start
It was time to crunch down as there are only 4 rounds this season. We came into round 3 in 5th place and had some points to chase if we wanted a shot in the championship!
The man him self JPP – Huge thanks to the lads for coming down and getting us on the podium!!!
After drivers briefing we had over 3 hrs to get the car dialed. Just at the end of the last session we blew an oil line of the cooler and the accumulator pushed 5 litres of oil at 60psi right through the engine bay!
Running the clips
Dave and Justin getting it done!
The boys had it sorted and managed to get us out for one more lap to scrub the Achilles tyres in right before qualifying.
Qualifying didn’t go to plan, on my first lap I picked 5th gear instead of 3rd forcing a straighten scoring a 0. Second lap threw it in to early and pulled up a bit short through the mid section. Finnished Qualifying in 12.
The Racing Logic at work
This set us up low in the battle tree but we managed to fight our way up to second place on the podium next to Michael Rosenblatt
Chasing down the Blatt

This weekend 31/01/2015 the Exedy Drift Team head to Adelaide for round 3 of ADGP, we are currently sitting in 5th place, to have a chance at the championship we really have to push hard for that number one spot this weekend!
Loading up with the Queensland boys
After hitting the wall at the top of 3rd gear
With an unfortunate ending to round 2 in Melbourne Japanese Parts & performance had their work cut out for them!
First day back the strip down
Down at Japaneseperformance.com.au
David and Fanki from JPP working over time to get the 15 straight again. Due to the damage in the front we decided to scrap the standed light assembly and just use the std lens with an LED light bar set up!
JPP also flipping the radiator in the boot to allow cold air flow of the rear Window!
Martin working his magic on the RACK
Once we had it back in one pice we headed up to Horse Hower Solution to find the miss that we had down low! Justin had it sorted with in seconds coming down to a blocked filter (we still had pressure it was the flow letting us down!) With minimal (5 min) time at the track we couldn’t diagnose the issue.
AJ Autostyle hooked us up with this sweet new Dmax bonnet and a quick re-wrap with the TapouT livery we were good to go!
Troy and the boys @ Nerang Tyre & Mechanical doing the final touches on the wheel alignment!
The boys at BBA Racing had a pretty sweet puzzle to re-glassed front bar, front guard and rear bar.

Horse Power Solutions
Doing there roundly check up on the dyno and making sure the ls3 heart is still up to beat – this time taking the rpm up to 7000 and boasting 800nm of torque.
Nerang Tyre & Mechanical
The 15 was well in need of a wheel alignment, the boys know what they are doing with drift set up – also giving the car there once over!
The S15 took its fair share of hits last season the Cosmis Racing wheels supplied by Csr Performance Parts have been proven to withstand the punishment – quick trip to Dr Wheels to get all the lips sorted and tidy the wheels up for the satin black powder coat!
