Snaps | 2011 Mexican Standoff Preperation

22 06 2011

The crew has been working hard getting all the cars ready for “The Mexican Standoff”. This event is round 2 of the FabricatedMotorsports.com Formula Drift Pro-am series. With many drivers from Team Silhouette sitting pretty in points, and Formula D pro licenses on the line, it should be nothing less than one of the most exciting grass roots drift events that Texas has ever seen. We hope to see all of our fans there! The event is in Mineral Wells, Texas on this coming Saturday June 25th. We should have extra NEW teamsilhouette.com shirts on hand for purchase that crew members will be sporting, so get at us!


Robert Lee placed second last year and looks to keep it going this year and stay on top of the pro-am series point standings to secure his fd pro license.

Here is some quick snaps of the team dialing in their cars for the event.

Robert also received a fresh alignment on his newly kitted ae86.

Sometimes extra measures are required to stretch some tires.


Quick overlook of Luis’ rear suspension before the weekend.


His car also just had a full roll cage welded in.

Drift Events | Silhouette On Top In Angelton

24 08 2010

Well Robert and Justin decided at the last minute to hit a local grassroots drift comp in Angelton this past weekend. Robert qualified 1st with Justin right behind in the 2nd qualifying position. Both drivers won both of their tandem battles and faced off against each other in the finals. With super close tandem it was hard for the judges to call the first battle so it went on to “One More Time” where Robert’s tires just did not have enough life left causing him to spin at the end of the first run and the one tire blow on his follow run giving Justin the victory.

Drift Events | Recap of Silhouette’s day @ the NST event

4 02 2010

Well it was a bitterly cold day, all day; and it stayed that way for a few of our guys. Justin’s car did not make it far into the morning, dumping fuel and fouling out plugs within the first 20 minutes of drive time at the event. The car was then parked for the rest of the day.

Cody and Chris were co-driving the s13 vert, car did well through out the morning until the power steering pump blew, clutch slipping and a massive oil explosion ha; that car was parked for the rest of the day as well.

Onto the competition. Luis and Cody both qualified top 16 in Luis’ car, but unfortunately both were eliminated in first round of tandem.

Our star of the day Nacho pulled through co-driving Emmanuel’s car and qualified 4th to get a first round bye. After waiting he went up against Ammen Rizvi in tandem where a great battle took placing going onto “one more time” twice where in the end Ammen took the very slight edge and proceeded in the competition eventually placing third.

All in all it was not a bad day for Team Silhouette even with some mishaps with a few cars. We would like to thank Mike @ NST and Aaron @ FabricatedMotorsports for hosting a great event. We will see everybody at the next event. Here are a few snapshots from through out the day, more to come!
