Welcome to today's video .
We are now in the California Desert .
We left L A .
It took about an hour drive north and we're heading to one of my favorite tracks .
If you guys remember , I think it was like two or three years ago .
One of my favorite events I've ever been to was a super D event at Grange Circuit .
Not like the craziest track .
It's just another Go Kart track , but it was really fun entry in the last event I went to , there were a lot of really good drivers again today .
Obviously , everyone on this trip is a really good driver .
I imagine Luke is going to be going ridiculously backwards on the entry .
I'm excited to hopefully do some back with this thing and it's just a really , really good track and technically being the last track that we're driving on this trip .
I'm excited that it's , this is one of the many infamous treacherous roads that lead to grange .
It's like full on rally mode last time I was on the show my S 13 and it was a little bit brutal , full disclaimer .
I just remembered that .
I think they renamed it from Grange to Apple Valley speedway .
So it's the same place .
I think this is where people are getting stuck last year is mega .
Look at this .
It was so funny when we were going to Super D because everyone's got like fancy pants , like low and stuff and seeing him trying to get through on the road .
All right , we're back on the helmet cam game .
We're going to use our first laps at Grange .
Get a feel for the track .
Figure out my pressures then start doing some tandem .
Got to get some heat in the tires .
The jack wasn't you remember that ?
You have to use the whole track ?
Oh my God .
Try a decent and see how she feels .
Let's just see how backwards we can get .
This track is going to demolish the fronts running .
70 psi so it can slip is sick .
But then when you're cooling down through the track , there's so many like windy twists and stuff .
My lower controller moved again .
This is another one of those tracks where the bumps will just annihilate stuff .
So jack it up .
I really want to put a tack on it so it stops moving around .
But I don't think anyone has a welder here right now for the last time we were at Grange and I backed in in a little bit .
I think I phased him .
Give me a little tip to .
All right .
So my little fix .
Although this is kind of temporary and not the best overall solution .
There's a little hole in the eccentric bolt that kind of just perfectly matched up with the gap in the up front .
So I'm putting this bolt in , hopefully it'll be enough just to hold it a little more in place .
So if I do get a jolt , it will prevent it from sliding over that way .
We have a little more than just friction , holding it in place .
Look , he's coming over here to , to make fun of what he did to me .
I just got him back for what he did .
You can't even tell from the outside .
I , I could tell that when I went to put my quick ba back , it didn't fucking help me .
I'm like , man , that didn't need to be like that .
It's not my first time doing it now .
This is the J Z X 100 because they don't sell basketballs over there .
You know , very few Japanese basketball players just hop in the trunk .
We don't have life that , bro .
What , what ?
No , he's on fire to get out of the car .
You've got it now , a hard job .
That's how he got the , was like those right there were dangerous too .
You , well , of my friends we were like doing the do and I'm like , oh , if we would have had a big fire extinguishers here , we would have got it out .
It was almost out when Luke got there .
We had , yeah , we had four extinguishers going on .
If we would have had one big one .
Boom , it would , it would have went out fuel fires like that at my track .
We , we , we'll go through 16 big ones as a car enthusiast having a car burn to the ground or just a car fire in general is probably one of the worst feelings in the world .
Beyond the , the helplessness , obviously , like I was there and I was almost crying like it's not even my car , you know , like my daughter was crying , it was her favorite car here .
It's just , and they're the nicest people , the nicest people , like , because they drive away from Idaho .
Idaho , I've already told him they can take my car and like home , like , and the family for like 20 years or something more .
His dad used to race it like years and years and years ago , they sold it and then bought it back and yeah , it's , it's worst case , like crashing is one thing like , and you know , things happen but like to fuel fire and then the circumstances around this fire , like us not being able to put it out because there just simply wasn't firefighting equipment here .
Um , which as a track owner myself , I'd never let it happen .
So , you know , it's nice to have a wild west track but not being able to put things out is just , it's the worst .
We used all of our extinguishers .
I think I ran quicker than you .
I think we got the footage we can watch it .
We have to have to watch it back .
I was like , I can be fast sometimes and it almost seemed like , you know , there was two fire extinguishers .
We had two more at that moment .
We were so close , so close , but it's a fuel fire .
Like all we needed was a couple of like real extinguishers .
But the reason we're here , well , the reason Adam's got me over here as well is like Rudy , like they're just beautiful people , honestly , they are beautiful people , sorry about swearing .
Um But yeah , we'd like to do something .
Um We're gonna get a fundraiser set up , leave what link link down in your description , I think said she's gonna set up a go fund me or some sort of fundraiser .
We can , I think more or less just uh obviously something like that's irreplaceable , but at least to help them and get , get him back on track .
Yeah , like that's , well , that's the thing .
It's not , it's not actually Rudy's car .
It's um , it was her car , right ?
It's her car .
Yeah , that's her drift car .
Like she's got no car and she's so enthusiast .
She was so enthusiastic to get home and start driving more and like this track , this trip , like was really getting excited to drive more and it's just , oh , yeah , look at dr they're literally dragging the body of the car away to me .
But anyway , uh , obviously there's a pretty large group of people here that all have like a lot of collective influence .
So I'd like to think with everybody we'll be able to help them out a couple of bucks anything .
Um , you know , and if it , if it goes crazy , like , you know , we don't need it to go crazy .
You just need enough to get them rolling again .
So and even if you guys don't have money to get or anything like that , if you just want to send some love like his Instagram name is right here right now , I'm sure anything is appreciated .
It's just rough and like I , I , I completely agree that feeling of helplessness even it not being our car 100% having to stand there and watch it burn to the ground .
I , I just , I just had that hugging him and like the emotion that come over myself , let alone over him like like I broke my car just before it happened and I was just like , what was I even being mad about ?
Like these guys , it just burned to the ground like every single one of us here is just , yeah , that's not the way we wanted to .
We definitely didn't want anyone to end drift week like that , like crashes , whatever .
You know what I mean ?
Like if you smash your stuff like whatever , like something super unfortunate .
It's just sucky .
You're really sucky .
Anything , anything you can help with guys don't , don't go crazy , don't push yourself to a limit or anything .
But like I said , there's a lot of us , there's all your followers , my followers , everybody here , you know , a simple dollar or two from every person is gonna be like , yeah .
And man , honestly , if anyone here deserves like something nice like those guys drove no heater in the rain in the snow they were in like they said , it was like minus at some point like that's , they've been on studded tires and they , and they had all their stuff stolen as well .
They had all their camera gear stolen as well like they've just , and it's nothing wrong .
They fuck , they're really good people .
They don't deserve it .
So , anyway , thank you guys in advance .
I don't think we're gonna be driving anymore today .
Um There's , there's been some arguments with the track because of not having proper like safety or any , any at all .
That's a , that's another subject .
I'd rather not take away from the focus of what we were trying to get across .
But uh the chance of driving more is slim .
So we're just kind of looking over the cars and making sure they're safe to drive back .
Well , we used all our extinguishers as well .
We use all of our extinguishers out of our own cars to try and get that fire out and we got none left now .
And the last thing we want to do is risk another fire potential as unlikely as they are in drifting .
They happen .
So be smart guys , put , put extinguishers in your car .
They don't cost much for sure .
And if you got a racecar for God's sake , put a suppression kit in it .
Suppression kits don't cost that much these days .
And like if you're investing tens of thousands of dollars in a race car , put a suppression kit in it , it's like 1000 bucks to save literally everything .
You so thanks to us .
Yeah , I think I did .
Oh , no , I was trying to use the whole track .
All you used all of the track .
You , you heard of the bro line ?
This is the no line .
Oh man .
Oh boy , I bet V R Wheels is another barrel .
Oh , yeah .
So , Luke essentially has no ball joint in his rear , lower control arms right now .
He knows that it's so unsafe that he actually requested that me and Mike take his wife and kids because his car is that dangerous to drive .
But he insists on driving with that and flat spotted .
Why you showing fronts because is good .
I don't wanna go .
Uh , when
