JDMST and Lowdown Meet

JDMST & from ktith on Vimeo.

Lots of sick cars, so wish the US had gotten the older skylines.

Hot Version in the US

Who says civics can’t run with the big boys. An eg civic showed up just to watch the touge competition when one of the competitors blows a head gasket. In comes a random civic, busting ass.

That F20C powered AE86 is no joke either.

A Few Nice S2000s

Nick's S2000
One of the few cars that you can put an extreme body kit on and not get made fun of.

Watch the rest of the parts after the jump.

Pikes Peak Hill Climb

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

Illtech’s R35 GTR

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

Clever Subaru 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.

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.

Trio of Fresh EG Civics

These civics do look nice. I think the EG is still the prettiest looking hatch to come from Honda.

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.
