The DRIFT dark matter detector is a 1 m^3 scale TPC with direction sensitivity to WIMP recoils operating in the Boulby Mine in England. For many years DRIFT operated with CS2 as our target gas. Recently we have researched the possibility of mixing a spin-dependent gases to the electronegative CS2 gas. This effort was successful and we have recently begun underground operation of a 30 Torr CS2 - 10 Torr CF4 gas mixture. Spin-dependent limits from these data will be presented.
