VIDEO> Lone Star Drifting in Houston

Earlier this month, NonStopTuning and Fabricated Motorsports hosted the first round of our local Formula D Pro-Am series, complete with cash payout and points. It’s been a good minute since I’ve posted a video on MotorMavens, but like many of you, I have been all too busy these past few months. However, if I told you I haven’t made anything since then, I would be lying.

Allow me to cut straight to the point. I’ll be the first to tell you I really dislike AE86s (*gasp* Antonio), however my good friend Robert Lee for some reason or another still drives one without it completely falling apart. He doesn’t just drive it though… he drifts the piss out of it… just like a real man should. And that’s exactly what he did at the Houston Pro Am at Gulf Greyhound Park.

Robert easily had one of the lowest powered cars (if not THE lowest powered car) out on the grid. On a good day, Rob’s purple thunder lays down an INSANE 113whp. However this past Sunday, he managed to take home a much deserved win, beating everybody, including Chelsea DeNofa (last year’s XDC champ in case you forgot) – check the vid and to see how he did it.

Our crew has more, er, “un-sanctioned” drift events planned with videos to follow now that everyone’s car in Silhouette is up and running.
