The SkidZ drift event and Z reveal at ZCON was a blast! Nothing broke on or off track except my wallet with all the tires I went through! I really want to thank everyone that did a paid ride along or bought a cup or shirt, that helps so much with being able to go out to these events and put on a show!
Please take a moment to watch the video that Momentum Media put together for the drift event/real life Z reveal!
My first day at ZCON 2021 was awesome! We started at Pikes Peak with a group of about ten cars per run group. We were told not to do over 30 mph, which is understandable, the speed limit on the mountain is 30mph and the hair pins are intense and banked. We started filming for my ZCON video with our run group… the footage sneak peaks I’ve seen are absolutely killer.
Once we got back from Pikes Peak, there was a Suds and Shine area at the host hotel. Basically an area with a car wash station to clean off all the dust your car accumulated up and down the mountain. It’s also a place where everyone can see each other and chat and hang out.
From the Suds and Shine we left for the Opening Ceremonies and the Z Reveal Party! The scenery was absolutely gorgeous there, and the venue was beautiful. It was an awesome feeling being literally surrounded by other Z enthusiasts while watching the new Z being revealed via YouTube. I almost had a ‘I’m not crying, your crying moment. If you missed it heres a link:
Everyone is entitled to a 10 minute break/Smoke break. My buddy Josh at work and I decided to take the term ‘Smoke Break’ into another form…a bit healthier.
Both of us are Supercharged now, we initially came out to take photos of our cars, but then I sweet talked him into letting me do some fancy driving around his car…took more coaxing than you would think!

Here’s a little bit of the Journey!
Thank you EP Racing… You have built one hell of a smooth engine that I can’t wait to beat the $hit out of.
Thank you to Specialty Z for getting everything dialed in and the tune for my AEM stand alone!
Thank you to Courtesy Parts/Nissan for all of my OE parts, it’s like a brand new Z now!
Thank you to Z1 Motorsports, that PG Exhaust system is the effing loudest thing-seriously tickles my ear drums!
Thank you to Clutch Masters for the 6 puck, clutch kicking will be just aggressive enough.
Thank you Nestor A. For the great deal on the internal engine components!!
And thank you to everyone that helped with the uninstall and install of the motors!
I have been sitting here for the past five minutes thinking about how to start talking about Zdayz when I came to the conclusion that there isn’t a series of words that can describe it. Its 24 hours of Z craziness every day. The days include Z chats and driving the Tail of the Dragon, pretty normal stuff. The nights… The nights are like a cocktail of bonfire craziness surrounded by everyone that has the same passions you have mixed with many shots of moonshine…many.
The pictures I have are kind of scattered. but take them in whatever order you’d like. They start with the drive there, getting there and all that is ZDAYZ, and the long rainy drive home.
