Larry Chen Video Transcript

And Here we are after all these years we’re back we’re going to do this Cruise in our hometown in our hometown different chassis not with the 14 got the 15 this time and uh yeah I’m really excited uh We’ve we’ve been talking about doing it here for years but we just it hasn’t

Lined up and it’s uh it’s a lot different lot different time now than it was was in 2020 yeah so this is after the Formula Drift season we also didn’t want to do this midseason because we didn’t want to risk the car right um now that you’re done with Formula Drift

You’re done with grid life now let’s do a nice proper photo shoot to send this season off yeah and I couldn’t think of a better place to do this I mean look at that right there it’s amazing so so then let’s talk about um this series that

Power stop is actually doing they wanted to highlight all different types of car culture right so they did a little off-road thing they did some track stuff for this it’s kind of a mix yeah cuz I mean this is a professional drift car um a professional driver you’re a

Professional content producer and we’re blending all of that tonight and showcasing that and our Trail is I mean you could tell that this isn’t uh some like pristine showpiece here you know this is definitely seen some action in the trail that uh We’ve we’ve come all

Along the entire series to wind up to this point well you know what’s funny to me is a lot of people will say haha it’s cool that it’s a professional drift car in Formula Drift and you’re sponsored by a Brake company dude your braking performance while drifting especially professionally is everything car control

Is so Dynamic with your foot pedal with your handbrake like all of that has to work like especially when you left foot brake it’s not to just be all showy like you know if I want to stay up on the wall longer you know I can depress my

Left foot or if I want to get tighter on an inner clip I can put more weight down over the front and your e bra always has to work if your e bra doesn’t work and it doesn’t lock when you want it to then you’re going to go straight when you

Don’t want it to and you’ll wind up in a wall or you’ll go off track you’ll hit another car so your braking performance is absolutely vital on track especially at festivals when you’re doing full course drift yeah you were almost on fire cuz you didn’t have power stops on

I did almost catch my Supra on fire because I thought it would be a good idea to hot lap lap after lap chasing these guys and then I didn’t do a cool down lap because we’re just so limited on track time so I just pulled into the

Pits to find another victim and I was talking to Ryan and he’s like dude you’re on fire your front brakes are just smoldering man I was like dude you’re on fire I we had ruptured an oil line and there’s oil on the ground and then this

Guy’s on fire it was G Life’s a blast dude but like you said we have very short amount of time you have 15minute sessions and you have a multitude of people out there to to try to shoot content for and well enough chitchat I saw an s13 just drive by I think we

Might might need to chase him oh yeah let’s run him down ready let’s do it let’s go all Right There’s a cop right here this is the turn around spot to go back over he wanted a shot at 711 let’s get it let’s get it right now here let me get out let me get out let me get out let me get Out this is so good I just can’t believe we parked a 4 drift car in front of 7-Eleven that is ridiculous H yeah bro dude this is just so ridiculous it’s awesome how does it feel to drive your formula drift car on the street it’s actually extremely
