531 whp, 391 tq


That’s a fast fucking civic.


Pikes Peak Hill Climb


I’m sure that guy was in another world for those 10 minutes.


Subaru WRX STI at the Nurburgring


Legendary track, legendary car. I’m really starting to dig Subarus, never been a super crazy fan of them but they sound sick and look pretty aggressive. I’ve always loved EVOs and my brother (RIP) has always been into the Subarus, maybe he’s telling me something through the celestial.


Illtech’s R35 GTR


A cool slick black one lol. Those first 6 seconds are music to my ears.


Clever Subaru WRX

Clever WRX
Mitsuwat? The competition between the two groups is funny. They’re both sick cars and I’ve just recently started looking at Subaru’s more often. I have a passion for EVOs but I’ve actually always loved that unique exhaust note that Subaru’s have. So wish I could just collect cars lol.


Air Jordan XII

Air Jordan Retro XIIs
Threw some jordans on today.


S2000 vs Mitsubishi EVO WRC 05 and More


Definitely an interesting match up.That S2000 is just so pretty and the handling is just insane.
Check out a few more videos after the jump.

Cats are growin up!

Pumpkin as a teenager.

Band Aids

I didn’t forget about starting to wear my sneakers, just slow progress!
Band aids

J’s Racing

Quite possibly one of my favorite JDM tuner shops. Why? Because they build beautiful cars!! Duh!
Make the jump for some of their sick builds.

More Chill Music

Seems like I should just start using rainy days as designated days to post up some relaxing tunes lol.

Beastly Riding

CRAIG PASSERO/T.I.Y.B.O.L. MIXTAPE from Lotek on Vimeo.

I remember when this guy first started putting out videos. He has gone insane lol. Definitely excited about riding my bike again this spring/summer, not that I’m going to be doing anything even remotely as cool as this guy, but I’ll be having fun haha.


Trio of Fresh EG Civics

Civics
These civics do look nice. I think the EG is still the prettiest looking hatch to come from Honda.
A few more shots after the jump


Mutiny Bikes in Texas

Dallas/Fort Worth TX from Mutiny Bikes on Vimeo.

Beautiful edit, Joe Simon really does a great job of making his edits gracefully pretty.


Rihanna


Whose that chick?!?!


Manual vs Automatic Transmissions

An often debated topic in the automotive world, and one that I have a clear stand on: drive an automatic if that’s what your into, drive a manual if that’s what you’re into and that’s that. But, for those of us who love the control and intimacy that you get with a manual gear box (not sequential, dual clutch, paddle shifter bullshit but a real manually shifted transmission with a clutch, shift linkage and an actual shifter/shift knob), it seems that our days are numbered 😦 and thats a damn shame as no other transmission set up (imo) can provide the engagement that three pedals and a shifter can.

How Headers Work


Definitely an interesting video. I actually didn’t know how exactly headers worked but I did know there was some science to their shape, besides just looking beautiful.


Fun Times in Japan


Some Australians take a trip to Hokkaido and do a bunch of seemingly random stuff. Hot cars scattered throughout which is what kept me going, it’s a pretty long video lol. Basically, I’m in love with Japanese car culture.

A little spoiler to the end of the vid, “It doesn’t really matter what kind of car you’ve got because ultimately, its all about the people you meet along the road.” I agree, and that can definitely be generalized to many other hobbies out there, thats part of what makes them fun sometimes.

On a more serious note, I’m keeping Japan in my prayers. I can’t even begin to imagine what thousands of Japanese families must be going through right now.


Touge Drift


Another cool vid from drag times. Love the S15.


Sneakers

Anyone whose known me for longer than just college knows that I was addicted to sneakers all throughout highschool. But, ever since I started college I’ve pretty much abandoned my sneaker fetish. All years of college I stopped checking on releases, sold a good deal of my sneakers and stopped wearing all of them. I’ve stuck to wearing beat up pairs of vans for college and just today it occurred to me that maybe I should start wearing them all again. In celebration, every time I wear a pair other than my beat up vans, I’ll post a pic for those who care lol. Maybe I’ll get back in the groove and just maybe I’ll reignite a fun hobby.

History and Comparison between NSX-R and F430


Definitely learned something new as well as gained newfound respect for Ferrari. Let’s not forget that it’s also sick to just see Tsuchiya-san blast through the touge in a NSX-R and a Ferrari. Something about those paddle shifters ticks me off though lmao, I want more control!


M3 with a V10 from an M5?

Yes please!
