Formula D driver Jeff Jones made his way out to the track to try out some new setting on his car in preparation for the upcoming FD round in Vegas. Also Joon Maeng was out testing out some parts on his crew chiefs car and giving him some lessons on Drifting. I will be very beneficial if you have crew that can drive and understand what you’re talking about when you need adjustments done to the car. We can’t wait for him to get his new build up and running.
