The revamp of the Slide Style™ site is finally complete, and live online. A lot of work went into this site, and I like it a LOT more than the old version. It looks a lot cleaner, and much more polished. I think the catalog of products looks awesome. I have some more items to get up on the site… but for the most part, she’s full-steam ahead.Take a look, buy something, and support American drifting!
Equally as overdue as the DriftMechaniks forum upgrade/re-skin, the new dM blog is up and running. We’ve had a ‘coming VERY soon’ page since 2004, and everyone else always seemed to come first… knocking the dM site down on the list of to-do’s. No longer. The whole crew has posting access… so subscribe at your own risk and commence the ‘elite’ mentality that is dM.
After 5 years of the same ol’ phpBB2 look and feel, I’ve upgraded the DriftMechaniks forum to phpBB3, and re-skinned it with a fresher, more updated look. I thought it would be a smooth transition until I found out you can’t embed HTML in phpBB3… which is not good, considering the amount of YouTube and Vimeo embeds we have on the site. I figured out a way to force embed – but now I have to go back through over 800 posts and at HTML bbcode tags before and after all embedded video.
Wasn’t I just saying it was a shame that the locals couldn’t get any seat time at Road Atlanta? Yesterday I got a phone call, and that dream became a reality. 3 hours. 10 drivers. One of the most amazing days of my life.More to come…
