After a lot of planning and coordinating Eddies (@Majestik_Unicorn) fully rebuilt Nissan GTR is now done and unveiled at The Sema Show. Every body panel has been replaced with a true molded widebody design by Kreme Developments, Brand new wrap with the help from Colorbomb Arizona, New wheels from Rohana Wheels, Brand new R888s from Toyo. This beautiful beast stole the show this year at the Rohana booth, stopping everyone in their tracks to walk around the car and take photos. This car has one huge transformation.
For a while now, fundamental turbo design has been pretty stagnant. To get more power you need a larger turbo, which in turn creates unwanted turbo lag. A larger turbo means larger piping is required… So on and so forth. Well… Turbo By Garret has dropped a BRAND new turbo design where less is more. Allow me to introduce you to the Garrett New G Series!
It was at that moment, we instantly knew it was show time as the first car left the start line and headed into the first turn of this long drift layout. Our local Arizona drivers meant business claiming the top two positions. Qualifying 1st with 91 points was Austin Kregle in his 1995 Nissan 240sx S14, fresh with a Toyota 2JZ-GTE swap. Kregle worked up until the last minute to ensure his car was properly prepped for Round 1 of competition. With almost zero seat time with the new powerplant, Kregle proved himself a skilled driver as he blazed the track with style and set the bar for the remainder of the competition. For second place qualifier, Nick Gross with his fresh S14 set a strong score of 88 points. After battling engine gremlins in the last rounds of competition in 2016, Nick came back even more determined to earn a shot at [...]
Ever wonder what it’s like to do 180mph blind? Here’s your chance.

Land speed records. They instill excitement, innovation, and the drive as humanity to surpass the limits of what we as a race believe is possible. It’s the dream of exploration. To explore what isn’t known and to experience discovery, within ourselves and share them with others. Now take that notion and turn it completely upside down. Remove the one safe, comforting aspect of control and throw it out the window, relying solely on another’s shoulders, wisdom, and judgment. Envision that, and one will begin to see the monumental accomplishment and struggle Mike Newman has achieved.
Back in September 2013, Mike Newman set a very unique land speed record. He recorded a 182.12 MPH world record driving a Porsche 911 GT2 whilst blindfolded. Let that [...]
You probably whiz by this car brand every day, get stuck behind, next to, or in front of one, or even park next to one, quite simply the brand is everywhere.

Beating out the second place car brand BMW which ranks 32 on the overall. Toyota seems to reflect that in their net worth of $236 billion [...]
Across the pond the Brits are showing some contempt with the fact that the Mini is continuing to grow. When the ‘new’ Mini came out at the turn of the century, many Mini enthusiasts thought it was “too German, too big, and not Mini enough.”
When you compare the recently launched third generation Mini to the to the first-gen reborn model back in 2000, you can notice a huge difference on how much bigger the newer model is. It’s not really all that mini anymore.
Naturally, the 2000 model is also much larger than the iconic original mini, but enthusiast can reluctantly tell the designers and engineers did their best to keep its dimensions compact. It’s still smaller than the cars it competes with. It’s quick, handles well, and is like the original [...]
