So after the last season we have been chasing down some more HP. We ran the last 2 seasons on 440hp it was enough but we just want that bit more poke!
This was the solution! !
We had been planing this build since mid last year with Dave and Fanki from JPP they really put their foot down to make this happen, we have know the boys since 2010 and have been working solidly with them for the last season (and what a great season we had), they are down to earth guys and always going out of their way to make sure the customers dream come true

Chris from CRG Creative really made the turbo side of things come together. He is an artist behind a welder, his thought “train” is always full steam and he creates a project that is easy for the customer to work on always thinking out side the box!

So the championship is still wide open. Coulson being knocked out in Top-32 leaves him on 270 points
Rosenblatt can’t finish any worse than 301 points now that he is in Top-16.
If Boettcher makes Top-8 the worst he can finish is on 278 points and can end up on 306 points if he wins.
Levi Clarke can’t finish below 282 points and if makes Top-4 worst he can finish is 309 and can end up on 330 points with a win.
Jarrad Klingberg has a shot at making the podium as if he makes 3rd he ends up on 276 and if he wins he ends up on 290.
Klingberg, Boettcher and Rosenblatt are all on the same side of the battle tree while Clarke is on the other side!
It is going to be one epic #titlefight tomorrow! Top-16 and Top-8 are at 12.30pm and Top-4 and finals are at 3.30pm.

So this weekend a new “Australian Drift Champion” will be named!
Flash back to Formula Drift syd
Swapped out the 3.9 for 3.7 to give us longer legs in 3rd *more entry speed *
This is what all of the Teams have worked for all year, all the blood sweat and tears! It comes down to this weekend, only 40 points between 1st and 4th (Exedy Drift Team in 3rd) and the top 10 drivers following closely behind! it’s sure going to be a “Title Fight”.
My crew, sponsors, family and supporters have been working around the clock to make this dream possible! We have won the last 2 events held on the South Circuit at Eastern Creek and will be pushing hard to make it a 3rd.
Win it or bin it
Keeping in mind that everyone will be going out with no limits this is make it or brake it and we will sacrifice everything trying to make this happen!

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
Make sure you check in to 7MATE on Saturday 21 February 2015 at 10.00am to see it all unfold! More info here

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.
