Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Jeremy Lowe at FDTX!!

I was really excited going into Round 6 of Formula D at Texas Motor Speedway. I knew it was going to be my last round of the season, plus it’s a new track, and I had nothing to lose. I felt really confident to go out there and give it hell! Going into the event we had the car running the best it ever has, buttt between testing and hitting the road for TX, we also decided to make a seemingly minor change and learned a very important lesson as a result.

Team OMG Dopeness >>> Jeremy Lowe Takes On Wall!!

Going into Formula D Round 4 at Wall, NJ I was not too psyched. Last year, Wall was probably our worst round of the season. We struggled with the car so much just trying to get it to go around the track, and I was not looking forward to a repeat, but we learned from our mistakes and came much more prepared this time around.

Right off the trailer on Thursday, first run of practice, the car was ripping! Better gearing and the new super responsive GT4094r Garrett turbo had this thing shredding that steep bank! I was so pumped, and all my doubts went right out the window. Now we could focus on minor adjustments and getting everything dialed.

Team OMG Dopeness >>> Matt Field Takes On Wall!!

New Jersey is always a tough track. The track is haggard, the wall is unforgiving, and this year it seemed each and every driver turned up the heat. With the new track layout we were less attentive about breaking things since we no longer had to run through the whoop section. On Wednesday, we raised the rear of my car to help with the transition coming off the bank. This seemed to help tremendously. We finished setting up and prepping the car and we were ready for Thursday practice.
