Sexy Ass 240SX

So I came across these pictures and I couldn’t resist but repost them. No details on all the mods, but I know the following:

  • TE37 Mercury Silver (17×9 fr & 18×9.5 rr)
  • Cusco Roll Cage (Unless it’s not)
  • Bride Bucket (Zeta III me thinks)
  • Turbo Kit of some sort (intercooler in the front gives it away)

The man responsible is Damon Young, which if you search him up you’ll see his car has been through several changes… but this in my opinion is his sexiest look. Good Job. Oh and to the owner if you read this: hope we didn’t post something you didn’t want and feel free to contact me if you want it down.

RE30 Club Sport: More Pictures and Official Sizes

A few weeks ago I gave you guys a sneak peak at Volk’s new RE30 Club Sport, a continuation of the TE37 SL mentality. These new RE30 shed half a pound to maximize your performance (doesn’t sound like a lot but this makes an already super light wheel even lighter). Since the TE37 SL were targeted for larger supercar-esk vehicles (RWD & AWD — GT-R, Evo, STI), the RE30 Club Sport have aggressive fitment for more of a FWD & AWD market.

Not a lot of pictures on cars but some up close and detailed fun 🙂

Q: How to Fit a Lamborghini in a Small Museum in Historic Rome

A: You build one on-site, Duh. Once again another example of an excuse to throwing money into a situation until it fixes the problem haha.
Anyways, this was one of the mant events held for the Lamborghini Aventador’s launch. I mean what better way to attract rich people than to spend a ridiculous amount of money to debut your new car. This monster was on display inside the “Chiostro del Bramante,” a contemporary art museum located in the historical center of Rome. As much as I’m hating I wish I was there -_-.
Anyways, enjoy the video. Its pretty cool and totally awesome.

Spoon’s Sadness

So we all know the effects of Tsunami in Japan. We’ve all been affected in one way or another. But the following pictures seem to have a greater effect on us here. Not only is it a shame but its just plain sad, oh Poor Spoon DC5… may your scrap metal go to a happy place.
For those who didn’t hear. One of the Race teams that ran the Spoon DC5 was up in Sendai. So like everything else the car got battered and obliterated, though it seems like someone might have looked the car for parts, most notably the wheels.
