Formula Drift Long Beach Coverage

This weekend held one of the most long awaited events that really kicks off the drift season out here in SoCal’s Long Beach. Formula Drift looks to have a great turn out of cars and spectators. The gloomy weather was a definite improvement compared to past years of being out in the burning sun. The weather was a little cold for my taste but still a nice day to enjoy cars and drifting. Our event photographer Emerson (Emu ) was able to attend and bring you the coverage from the event. So BIG THANK YOU to him for the images you’re about to see. We’ll be posting the coverage in a series this week. So enjoy the first segment from Formula Drift, Long Beach.   

Formula D Tech Inspection X Import Tuner Meet P3

Enjoy.

 

Project G 2 Year Anniversary Meet Finale Coverage

Project G: 2 Year Anniversary Meet

Friend of mine at Promax Auto Service was one of the sponsors at the Project G 2 Year Anniversary meet and invited me to come out chill and get some coverage (something we’ve been in need of on this site). He owns a Variochrome Pearl White Hexis wrapped Miata and of course this was a Miata meet. But, what i thought would be a sea of Miata’s turned out to have a nice variety of cars from FD, FC’s, Nissans, Scion, Lexus and Even Fiats. I was impressed with the turn out and the guys at Project-G had it well organized and had a bunch of give-a-ways making it fun and memorable.

On to the pics!!! Part 1

Candy’s Fiat 500 on KW V3 and custom VIP Modular Dubai Gold VX110

Sean (owner of the Variochrome Pearl White Miata), Candy (owns the Fiat 500 with the Dubai gold VIP Modular wheels) and Elie having some fun 

Mr. I stay Crushing Robert Kochis and his well known Rocket Bunny FR-S stopped by to kick it and check out the meet.

Here we have Supra Nick and his Gf Jill that brought out her Lexus IS300 on some uber rare Panasport G7 c5c

SEMA Coverage Part II: The FR-S Collection

Seeing that we were limited on time we didn’t get to see the entire car show and i’m sure we missed a lot of the hyped FR-S/BRZ’s out there but the ones we came across looked pretty bad ass. I wish I got to see the one built by the homies at Platinum VIP/ Phantom Garage and the Iforged one but I totally missed out. These are the ones that caught my eye and stood out to me while walking the halls.
Enjoy.

Bobs Your Uncle: SEMA Coverage Pt. 1

Well I know it’s pretty late and I’m sure everyone has seen all or most of the nicest rides of SEMA but we wanted to bring our coverage to you anyway. We only attended SEMA one day because we didn’t have the luxury of going more days (darn work). We pretty much drove up after work the day before SEMA ended. So we knew we’d have a full day of work ahead of us Friday. Seeing that we had to wake up early for the last day we head over for registration to pick up our passes for the day and our luck they couldn’t find our name for media. Since we were pressed for time we asked how much it was to go into the event as a spectator. Who knew it was $75 for a day? Technically its $75 for the four day pass but seeing that we were there the last day thought they’d gives us a break. WRONG! Haha it wasn’t their fault but we decided to wait it and have them look for our Media passes again. Luckily enough they did find our registration and thus began our day.  I won’t jibber jabber too much but I wish we could have gone for a few days rather then rush the coverage into one day but there’s always next year.

TRD: Scion FR-S/ Toyota 86

Sick kit from factory is always a plus. Don’t know how easy it is to get the kit here in the US or if it’s even available but sure does look good. 

Remember this? Scion Fuse

I don’t know what happened to the Scion Fuse concept but it looked pretty damn good (minus the doors). Over all design seems like something that might have caught on. No contest to the Scion FR-S/ Toyota 86 but I think it would have held it’s own. Take a look at the details even the hatch glass moving up and the trunk sliding out. Would have been nice to see this go into production.
