Team Hakata Fight Club Z3M

Yes, Team Hakata Fight Club is a name of a tuning shop, and yes, their Z3M lives up to its name cause it’s one of the toughest Z3 I’ve ever seen. But don’t take my word for it, take a look, and you be the judge.

Tsukuba Attack Fever60

One of my favorite type of auto racing has got to be time attack/circuit racing and in Japan, this type is as big as they get. This year, I’ve been keeping a close eye on most of the events in Japan and the most recent event was this past weekend’s Tsukuba Attack Fever 60. Like most of the “Attack” events, this one was filled with some heavy time attack cars.

Blue NSX: That JDM Game Changer

I think I can speak for all car builders and enthusiasts that when building a car, you always have some sort of inspiration to help guide you on your builds. These inspirational cars are usually something amazing and needless to say, jaw dropping. One of my favorite inspirational builds have got to be this Advance/Marga Hills equipped NSX from Japan.

This is probably one of the best NSX I’ve seen. The combination of Marga Hills and Advance Japan parts with those gorgeous TE37SLs is just pure automotive porn.

Offset Kings Okayama 14′

Fatlace/Illest’s Offset Kings show has been touring around the world this year and recently made a stop in Okayama, Japan this past weekend. This was actually their second stop in Japan this year, but this time around the show happened in conjunction with Formula Drift Asia and also MotorGames. From the photos I’ve seen, there were some pretty nice cars that attended the event, but I just narrowed it down to a few of my favorites to post on the blog.

Of course, you can always check out the rest of the photos by following the links below.

Voltex STi Done Right!

Here’s yet another car I saw on Yahoo Auctions that just stood out to me as something special. This beautiful Voltex equipped STi as had work done throughout the entire car, or what I like to call, a complete package.

If done right, you almost always cannot go wrong with Voltex exterior pieces. And even though Voltex parts are pretty aggressive, somehow, this STi remains pretty subtle and streetable.

Personally, I would’ve opted for a full Voltex treatment all around, but a Varis rear bumper is a nice touch as well.

That Voltex Type 5 V mount wing is something else… I think it’s the perfect fit for Evos and STis.

Voltex front and sides along with Mercury Silver RE30s are match made in heaven.

When I mentioned earlier that this was the complete package, I’m talking upgraded HKS GT2835 turbine, HKS intercooler, SARD 650cc injectors among a host of other engine modifications. As far as interior wise, it’s a little more subtle than the rest of the car, but you can still spot some upgrades in a Carrozzeria DVD/Navi, Sparco steering wheel, Defi-Link system, and other minor bits.

That Classic Look: Black Pearl R34 x TE37

I’ve been religiously checking out Yahoo Auctions recently for some fresh cars on sale in Japan and I’ve found quite a few gorgeous R34 GTRs as you can tell from my recent posts. Here’s another I found today sporting a real classic look in the bronze TE37s. Along with its simple yet stunning exterior, this M-Spec has a pretty tuned up engine as well thanks to a NAPREC high response headand a host of Tomei goodies under the hood.
