Space Maker

I never ever get tired of mannslayer's GC8. Ingenuity through aggression.

Own It Like You Stole It

There is one aspect of car life that I really envy and miss from the drift scene; the love and dedication poured into a project that is constantly pushed to and past its limits. In my opinion, there is nothing more breathtaking than the sight of a nice, well done project car being driven all out, the only remaining margin being the knowledge that you can rebuild it but you can't replace the joy of action.

One Glance

That's right, this is a paint teaser.

Togue Factory S14

Despite their production of off-brand aero, which I will tolerate in the name of drifting, Togue Factory builds some meticulously crafted track cars. I love the subtle widebody on this late model S14. Where has the attractive yet inexpensive, fun rear wheel drive car gone? I sorely miss its absence in the automotive world.

Cyber Reclamation

Now that I have no internet keeping daily updates is becoming nearly impossible, some days I just can't get out and make a post. But that's okay it's quality over quantity right? Right. And today is certainly quality. This car has been captivating since the start for the one glorious aspect that can not be faked, fabrication. Anyone can buy parts, fewer can buy the right parts, and fewer still can do anything with the right parts; but only the most elite can make the right parts. WillieCoyote's Carbon Subaru project has attracted just as much attention as a build so eccentrically titled deserves. This car is built and lives on the race tracks of Singapore, well when it isn't taking him to work at Cyber Racing, his business and fabrication service. The entire car has more or less been re-imagined, widened, and restructured out of carbon. I always feel a little refreshed that this car is constantly evolving, becoming faster and more ridiculous to see in a road going setting. Also gratifying was to see this setup grab the cover of Hot Version, the Japanese panoply of awesome race constructions. Congrats and keep up the good work!

Massive STi Update / Help Wanted

Everything has gone extremely well with insurance after the accident. Aside from all damages being covered, the entire car is going to receive a nice paint job. Some times I thought I would never see the day when I would be able to repaint the car, it has been a true testament to the fact that the Lord is good, in control, and can use any situation no matter how bad or inconvenient to bring about good. Additionally, with the damage to the roof needing a fair amount of metal and paint work, we will be proceeding into the repair throwing the whole thing out and replacing it with a carbon panel made for us by AMS. I am already anxious to drive the car after this, I can't imagine what it will feel like to cut almost 20 pounds of the car let alone of the highest point. The possibility of additional improvements is also on the table, so I am hoping to get a lot of feedback as to what people are thinking.

Here are the five paint colors I am considering:

Grey from the R35:

Grey from the Evolution:

Grey from the R32:

And for the off the wall color choices, I absolutely love jades.

Lotus Jade:

Nissan Jade:

And for some part options any opinions are great:

Rocket Dancer Hood:

Monster Hood:

Ganador Mirrors:

Craft Square Mirrors:

SYMS Brake Ducts:

Again all of the parts are nothing more than possibilities, they all offer more functionality than what they replace but I am still in the consideration phase. You may love all, some, or none; I would just like to hear your thoughts and reasons.
