You see, this car isn't just Adam's Time Attack car. It's also the same car he used to compete in the Just Drift Top Drift series as well. Looking around the car, you see battle scars of past incidents, wall taps, and other damage. In addition to losing his hood, he also lost a brake pad on the driver's side and the 240SX only began to slow after the piston made contact with the rotor.

It worked and Casey was able to take the penultimate step on the podium.
