S2K Gone Wrong?

When it comes to modifying cars, just how far is too far? I’m normally not the type to post up these kinda builds but this thing takes crazy to a whole new level…… Is this going a bit too far? Drop a comment below with your thoughts…

The crazy and sad thing about this S2k is that it’s got so much potential being that it’s from Japan and everything that’s on the car is authentic…..down to the Modulo front lip. If only it didn’t go full retard…..

The SSR Koenig Monsters would’ve been more proper on a Silvia…

Going beyond the “stretch.”

Normally I’d hesitate to use words like “ruined” or “broke” when it comes to other peoples’ cars but this thing is another story..

Mugen Flavored Suzuka

I always seem to repeat this notion, but a lot of times keeping things simple goes a long ways. Case in point, this simple and gorgeous JDM Suzuka Blue S2000. With this car, you can literally count the aftermarket parts on one hand, but because these are well chosen parts (i.e. Mugen M7) it makes the car stand out from the rest.

That Mugenized S2K

When it comes to building a car, I’ve noticed there’s several very popular approaches and one of my favorites is what I like to call, the catalog car. What I mean by “catalog car” is that the builder tends to favor a few if not just one brand of parts throughout the whole car. Some people have mixed feelings on this type of build but if it’s tastefully done, I’m all for it. This past Sunday at the Wekfest Toy Drive I got a chance to snap a few shots of said catalog car and it’s absolute Mugen heaven.

I’ve actually been following Hanzel’s build for quite a while, and his Mugen S2k is as clean as they come. This car is what I’d call a true catalog car cause I’m almost positive this thing has the full Mugen catalog in it, from the wheels to the aero, and to the engine bay and interior. Mugen. ALL Mugen.

I also like the semi-tuck job in the engine bay, gives it a real uniqueness compared to other Mugen builds.

That’s all for now folks! But stay posted for more coming up soon!

Mix Matched S2k That Works Wonders!

I love it when owners mix match parts on their car that actually works! Case in point, this sinister S2K from Japan. This beast of a car has got parts from all sorts of manufacturers, I’m talkin’ Sorcery front bumper, Spoon front fenders, ASM rear overfenders, Top Secret rear diffuser, and a Mugen hard top…not to mention the J’s Racing spoiler as well…

Now THAT’S diversity!

[Event Coverage] Japantown Shukai 2014 ( Part 2 )

Alrighty, it’s almost bed time for me, but before I go snooze, I thought I’d drop some more photos from yesterday on here for you guys to look over. Before I go into the photos though, I just want to say that this year was bigger and even better organised than the previous. I loved that there were a variety of music going around, the food trucks ( that were not there last year ), and also the fact that the booths are all setup together is a big plus for me. I also thought that there were a pretty decent amount of quality builds that were showing, and considering the fact that the show is free, I could definitely justify the 45 min drive down to SJ.

And for now, on to the pics!
