Probably the same dirty things I'd be willing to do. On an side note, as developed as these cars are you'd think they'd have cockpit air exchange figured out a little better.

seen the build video on that car, they put in a lot of work for sure, awesome end results, combined with driver skill.

If you havent seen the build videos guys they are on youtube.

Well...maybe you haven't lived in both...lol. Ga is MUCH hotter...and I say this as a guy sitting in a shop/warehouse space during the summer. Ga will kill you at 95 degrees, whereas Vegas is a cakewalk at 108F. My friend who lives in Ga, helped me move my shop to Vegas, and we arrived in 108F. We unloaded the entire Penske and was like...what's up with this b*tch heat, I thought the desert was hot...lol.

I grew up in New Orleans, played football outside as a kid, etc. You wanna die in the summer...you go to NOLA or Miami...Vegas will be like a walk in the park. I'm damn near cold in Vegas half the time...lol. Living with NO humidity is VERY, VERY different. I used to come here for SEMA every year, conventions, etc....took me living here to get it.

Ehhh...I mean, no....but compared to living 30min from road atlanta, yeah. To do LA it'd be me getting a hotel, or trying to park/navigate unfamilar lands. If I had some friends there, yeah...but...just feels like it'd be a sh*t show. Drift Atlanta is amazing...tons of parking, tons of space, beautiful...lol. Cali is a damn mess...lol.

I saw the quote with Long Beach and immediately convinced myself that that's where you'd moved from. Vegas in July will melt crayons on a car seat and make your rear view window come unglued from the windshield. I've been to Little Rock in the dead of summer, 105 and full humidity. Miserable.

Vegas, in the sun...that'll kill ya too, but the shade is actually effective in dry heat. In humidity, shade really doesn't do big favors, plus you sweat like a pig and just don't get cool. Honestly, I don't know how I can ever return to a humid climate...I'm not sure I can do it. I'm a west coast/side of the country fella now.

Long Beach is honestly like having the Grand Prix of Long Beach with less people and with drift cars of course.

I got the chance to ride with Chris Forsberg last year at Gridlife, and that was incredible. It's amazing how smooth these guys are. The car control is also insane, but I'm sure the car helps with that a bit (also, we were in his Infinity drift taxi thing).

I would love to go to the Baja 1000, but something about being in the middle of a desert in Mexico loses the appeal for me, so Mint 400 is right there on the to do list.
