The bar has been raised for all competitors of the KMS Drift Series. Nashville, TN was the setting for Round 7 and it proved to be the best competition round year to date. 48 drivers from 5 States came out to compete and prove that drifting is alive and well in Nashville, TN. Special guest, Nick Thomas, Formula D Driver, put it all out for his fellow drivers and the 800+ spectators that came out to enjoy what KMS is all about… grass roots drifting & keeping it fun.

So how, exactly, do you live without a car payment?
Here’s the deal. Recent statistics show that one-third of car buyers sign up for a six-year loan at an average interest rate of 9.6%. Among these buyers, the average price of the car is just over $26,000. This means that one-third of the cars you see on the road are dragging a $475 payment behind them.
The car dealer won’t tell you that your awesome new car loses about 25% of its value the instant you drive it off the lot. After four years, your car has lost about 70% of its value!
What does that mean? After six years, you’ve paid almost $33,000 for a $26,000 car, which is now worth maybe $6,000. Not a good deal.
Here’s a new plan. What if you bought a cheap $2,000 car just to get around for 10 months? Then you take that $475—the average car payment—save it every month, and pay for a new car (with cash!), instead of giving it to the bank.
After 10 months of doing that, you’ll have $4,750 to use for that new ride. Add that to the $1,500–2,000 you can get for your old beater, and you have well over $6,000. That’s a major upgrade in car in just 10 months—without owing the bank a dime!
But the fun doesn’t end there. If you keep consistently putting the same amount of money away, 10 months later you would have another $4,750 to put toward a car. You could probably sell that $6,000 vehicle for about the same price you paid 10 months before—meaning you now have $11,000 to pay for a car, just 20 months after this whole process started.
The bottom line with this exercise is simply this—what could you do with that $475 if you weren’t paying for the car every month? Anything you wanted!
Think about it this way: If you were to invest that $475 (remember, this is the average car payment in the U.S.) into a good mutual fund with a 12% rate of return, you would have over $100,000 in 10 years! At 20 years, you would have made $470,000. And at 30 years? That mutual fund would be worth $1.6 million!
The numbers will make your head spin, but it really just comes down to simple math. The less money you are spending on your car every month, the more money you have to put into other more important things: your kids’ college fund, your retirement, and paying off any other debt you might have.
KMS Clean and inspect to find out where it’s leaking
A car leaks through it’s seals and gaskets. Your oil leak can come from a few places and you will need to clean and inspect those areas to find out where it is leaking. Once KMS finds out where it is leaking we will need to replace the seal. Which can vary in cost depending on which seal and how much of the car you have to take apart to get to it.
Here are some ways KMS detects the leaks.
-First KMS clean each of the areas that can leak up with some degreaser and rags so you can see clean metal and allow you to look for new leaks. Check for leaks daily. If you see oil or sludge that is where the leak is!
- Valve cover gaskets. These are common leak points. They cover the valves on your engine. They are the long dome shaped sheet metal covers on top of your engine. You should grab a rag and degrease your engine around the seal where your valve covers bolt on to the top of your engine. If you have a 4 cyl engine you will only have one. If you have a V-6 or V-8 you will have 2 covers. Once you degrease the engine drive it around and check the seal line each day to see if you see oil or sludge leaking down the side. If you do then you have a leak in your valve covers. This is fairly easy to replace and relatively inexpensive even if you aren’t mechanically inclined.
-Oil pan gasket and drain plug. This is the pan at the bottom of your engine that collects all the oil It will have a drain plug in it. These are also common leak points. Same thing here. Clean around the seal between your oil pan and your engine. Put a piece of cardboard underneath your car under the oil pan at night. If you come out in the morning and there is oil on the cardboard look underneath to see where it is coming from. If it is from the oil pan you’ll need to change the oil pan gasket. If it is from the plug you’ll need to change the plug washer. Note!! when you pull out the oil pan or plug all the oil will come out of the car so do this when you are going to change the oil and make sure you have something to catch it in!
-Rear seal. This one is difficult and expensive. There is an oil seal at the rear of your engine near the transmission. Typically it is difficult to see this one but you will know if you have a leak due to lots of blue smoke coming from the underside of the car at the rear of the engine. If you have this problem bring it to a mechanic as the engine will have to be removed to replace the seal.
