I have always liked touge, even before I knew that there were communities that raced it seriously. I had my Forza aero'd Skylines and Supras and would always race down Kaido when my drifting team was idling. That was a lot of fun, even though I was not good at it. I then found MiNdChArGeR through his Twitch account. At the time, he was streaming touge lobbies with Wilson, and I decided to join them. In that lobby, I made a fool of myself. That lobby showed me that I was not as good as I thought I was, and I needed more practice if I wanted to take it seriously. After the lobby, I spent the rest of the day building cars and seeing if I can make one that can be competitive with MiNd and Wilson's cars. After a couple days of tuning, I finally made the first version of the Mazda MX-5 Superlight, and I was ready to devote to touge. I tried out for GTxS, which was one of the most popular teams at the time. After their testing, I was not accepted. I do not know the reasoning behind them denying me, but that drove me to become faster. I used my frustation as fuel to get better. I was friends with MiNdChArGeR and Wilson at the time of this, and he gave me some tips on what to do to get better. I took his advice. Once I got my times into the thirties, I tried out for Garage Kaido; the team that MiNdChArGeR and Wilson were on at the time. After their testing, I was accepted into the team. One of the first things I did was go into their club garage and test out their cars. I was amazed to find out that all of their cars performed much better than my MX-5 at the time, and I was curious as to why. Later, I asked for a tune of theirs. I was then sent a tune, and I went into the tuning menu to see what caused the car to perform the way it did. Once I found out what they did, I used the same method to produce a similar result with my MX-5. Garage Kaido worked together with me to create the MX-5 Superlight that is on the leaderboards today. I felt like I was part of a family more than a racing team. Even when Garage Kaido died and Street Version was born, we were still a family.


I am currently a member of Street Version. I am fifteen years old, and am a freshman in high school. I reside in Palm Desert, CA, and I am into computer science and graphic design.

Literally the fastest person I have ever raced, keep going at it dude!

I race B class. I find the lack of power in the cars at such a low class makes me push myself to be as fast as possible, trying to shift gears quicker, trying to find optimal corner entry points, trying to find optimal braking points between corners, trying to accelerate out of corners as quickly as possible, not relying on pure power to make me go fast, but on skill, technique and wisdom.

Form follows function.

Well, if you haven't noticed already, I have been off the site for a while. I have been caught up in schoolwork for the past couple of months. Being a freshmen isn't easy! Anyway, it feels great to be back and I now have a PS3 with Gran Turismo 5 ( 6 is on pre-order ) and I have PSN.

If you wish to add me, my PSN I.D is "Konasumi".

AWW YEAHHH!!

It's a good wheel but P.S. turn on power assisted steering on wheel settings if you don't want to break an arm Wink

I'll be sure to do that, haha.

This wheel gives me quite a workout. I've been playing iRacing for most of the day, and I'm beat right now.
