JDMST and Downshift meet 5th Feb 2011

Sunday 5th of FEB
4pm til Dark
Be there.

In January we moved the JDMST EOMM meet to Queensland Raceway, away from prying eyes, we also re-named it DownshiftxJDMST. After a few chats with Neil who was our contact from Queensland Raceway, we decided lighting up the short track would be our best bet. Being able to hold around 350 cars, which in our minds was easily enough to cater for the usual crowds at the monthly meets. However when the night rolled around and the gates opened, the cars did not stop coming.

700+ car turnout was enough to warrant the Queensland Raceway officials to state that “those are the longest car queues to get in to an event we have ever seen”. This coming from the officials who deal with Powercruise, Jamboree and V8 Supercars year in and year out. Honestly we were all completely and utterly blown away by it. Never in a million years did we think we would get those sort of numbers at a car meet, ever. That is the same figures that you see at the likes of Hellaflush, WekFest and Eibach meets in America. For that you all should be proud.

It is that time of month again, the DownshiftxJDMST meet is back on, once again being held at Queensland Raceway. We have got a far better contingency plan this time and are even throwing together some actual Gymkhana for the few who manage to get there money in first and have a go. The more you guys support these meets, the bigger we can grow them and the more Queensland Raceway will let us do, at this rate we will have full track access in no time.

This being advertised on QGL is a good sigh of lots more cars than last time. That means more skids to leave, one way in and out chaos, and police!

I'd love to come but im afraid of the police or a hero crashing into my car.

Sounds like a gathering of many good cars, some s*** ones and an extremely high ratio of f***wits to normal people.

There were not that many people being retards and doing skids last time. The cops showed but didn't really go after defects, more or less watched out for d****. Like they do at Harrys.

the group at downshift and JDMST are normally very well behaved.

The boost crusing guys are the ones that talk s*** and start stuff, basically boost is the marsden of the car scene.

Rdizz you just like to hit boost in an underground carpark hey? Cos that's real smart.

I know the JDMST guys are well behaved, but doesn't stop police from rocking up to the meets and defecting people.

I'm a hoon noob, what the f*** is a "hardpark"? Do you practice reverse parallel parking with a blindfold or something? That sounds pretty hard.

It is that time of month again,

This happen every month?

So basically I put a wing on the back, splitter on the front 800hp @ the wheels, roll cage, NOS, and a danger to manifold light on my car, then go drive it at a speed that would equate to grandma in a wheelchair?

Unless that drive was through the pits and ended up with me then hitting 100 bar of boost at the same time the NOS kicked in blowing the floor out of my car as I launched into orbit then I think I'll pass.

Or is it just a fancy name for "it's a car show where you can take your awesome car that you use for the track, but today is just a car show to make everyone else jealous"? Because that doesn't sound like a complete waste.

Meet went well.

The gymkahana event was kind of slow to begin with as many guys were drifters. Only incident was some old guy putting his brand new sti into the wall trying to get it sideways on the track.

The police did not show, not a single car just checking it out.
On the way out to QR at willowbank Village there was a speed camera van, but its is usually seen around there.
Some nice cars and i took a few hundred photos, only going to post a few.

Oh wow, half a leg & 1/8th of a butt. That could be my ass for all we know (it's not, I wasn't there).

lol @ wrx guy. He didn't hit it very hard though, was there much damage?

edit: wtf? what's with the VW going into the shed in that youtube video? Did he just get out there & not bother hitting the brakes or what? Mechanical failure? It looked like he had it pinned to the floor all the way up until the corner & didn't even bother trying to slow down.

The rexy only popped the fender foggy out, easy fix. A few scratches only cosmetic

i understand, but its not for everyone.

I can see to some there is no point in having a very nice, clean car and only drive it to and from events(sometimes even on a towed to) then its sits in a garage until next time.

I personally don't like it but its a part of the scene.
like those low n slow comps, i don't understand the point of making your car unpractical low, then trying to drive over a little dip to while f*****g up your bodywork, but its your money.

I for example am all for driving your pride and joy. Currently in the market for a 1st gen mx5.

yeah i have to admit cressy's are an awesome sleeper but dont underestimate old BMW's.. i recently had a run in with a 320 E30 ( who is a mate of a mate) and has spent a total of 4K on this thing with a ebay turbo setup on all stock motor apart from fuel and head gasket that is easily pushing around 400-420hp. Blew me away on how much of a budget build it was and just worked.

The guy in the VW was watching the drifters and said he would show them how its done!

He came in way to fast, hand braked and nothing happened so he hit the brakes and understeered into the wall then shed. Wrote the car off and had to pay to fix the shed!

Spare car is a 1977 Volvo 264 (v6) That is a sleeper, fast as hell for its age and scares people. Not so much a sleeper but everyone expects a Jaguar to be driven by some old guy, hitting the rear fog lights (made rear lights brighter, so it looks like your braking) and stomping the go fast pedal got rid of a few tailgaters :P
