Sharing this from a friend that’s an absolute Supra fan Mr. Supra Nick.

“”Wow! For once a video with true stats and true auto enthusiast opinion rather than the usual BS about the Supra!”

Part 2 Formula Drift: Introductions

I wanted to take the chance in part 2 of the coverage to introduce our newest addition to the team Deejay Dunsparth that was also at the event and was able to take a few pics for us.


Here we have the sequel to Emerson’s (Emu) Formula D coverage. G

Beauty in the build: R32

R32’s are a fan favorite and it’s obvious why. This one is no different. Although it’s not on the floor or “hella slammed” it’s serves it’s function and just looks tough. RB26DETT under the hood and Nismo parts here and there. It’s simple and efficient.

This Merc totally caught me off guard. Didn’t think much of it besides ey look super clean classic car. Till I walked over to the front of the car and saw the hood up and what i found under the hood O.o WOW!

The 2JZ-GTE fitted in the engine bay!!! There’s wasn’t many mods to the stock 2JZ but it was nice to see it in an old Merc style Benz. The car also was sporting a face lift interior. IS250 dash  gauges and center console fit just perfect in the car. Wish I had more photos but memory card problems = FAIL and pictures didn’t come out. 😦 https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1160copy.jpg

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.
