3/30 Recap Balcony Drift Clinic

Balcony Drift Clinics and the freshbloods! It was great showing the ropes! The event started with a ~2 hr beginner session doing donuts and figure eights. As the drivers improved in skill and confidence, we encouraged the drivers to the advance layout and the big entry!

Tip on Big Entry
The big entry can be challenging. This is one simple way to do the big entry.
1. enter on the top of 2nd gear
2. Manji technique (aka scandinavian flick); turn left toward the apex, then right away from the track, then left again.
3. During the transition let off the gas which grips the front tires and swings you to the other side
4. Apply throttle to continue out of the drift. (think goldilocks: too much gas will spin you out, too little gas will under-steer or grip up your tires).
5. practice makes perfect

2/16 Recap – Balcony Drift Clinic

Thanks for coming to the last drift clinic! Beginner drivers focused on 3 techniques: clutch kicking, e-brake drift, and feint. The advance drivers honed their drifting skills while tandeming. It was a great day where the atmosphere was about learning and having fun.

Recap: 11/23 – 4th Annual Black Friday Drift Bash


Thank you for the continuous support at the 4th annual Black Friday Drift Bash at Grange Motor Circuit! A little fun fact! Slide Factory got started by a group of friends that couldn’t find track days, so we started hosting frequent, and affordable events while focusing on customer service.

We would like to thank the loyal drivers, team members, and partners for the continual support. Without you guys, we wouldn’t be who we are today.

At the event, there were many familiar faces, and many new ones. This is extremely exciting since our mission is to give a platform for drivers to excel in their driving skills and eventually see them progress to Formula Drift! (Rome, we are cheering you on!)

To many more drift events! We have big plans for 2019!
