Wow. How I wish I can actually practice what Tiff shared. Tiff is a lucky guy to have actually earned from something any guy would love to do.

Tiff is the guy. I checked his utube tutorials and drifting lessons and there is nothing that I ca say but to admire this guru. I would like to see him do it the Japanese way in the mountain side.

News Bits: In November 2006, Needell was cleared of ’failing to supply details in relation to a speeding ticket’, and the accompanying speeding offence by Pontypridd magistrates. He was defended by Nick Freeman, otherwise known as Mr. Loophole. But Tiff is the guy. I love this guy and he is an icon!
