[FEATURE] Picture Me Rollin’: Jason Wu’s Track To Street S2000

It’s been a long while since I’ve done any action or roller shots of any car, so when my buddy Jason requested some rollers of his daily driver, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the opportunity. What’s interesting about his daily driver is it’s actually a dual purpose S2000, both for street and track duties that’s equipped with a big Voltex Type II spoiler. His other car; an E90 M3 that’s also equipped with a Voltex wing and is very similar to the S2000 as far as tasteful and functional modifications are concerned. So, without further adieu, some shots of the Rio S2000 after the break. Enjoy.

First off, an old shot of the weekend warrior.

A little rusty with rollers but I think they came out okay. The sun was beating down on us, so conditions were not that favorable.

Views from the Great Highway in San Francisco.

The newly added Voltex Type II is a must for any track car.

A couple of static shots to round out this short set. Wheels are 17×10 +45 S2000 spec Volk Racing CE28n.

Finishing the post off with my favorite shot from the set.

Thanks for looking! Until next time…

MoMo Hits Up Powerhouse Amuse [Part I: I Spy A Legend]

Moving on to my next stop on my shop quest, I paid a visit to non other than the titanium factory, Powerhouse Amuse. This was actually the furthest shop on my list but it was well worth it, more so than even ASM Autobacs. Located in Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture, Powerhouse Amuse has been producing some of the most gorgeous JDM aero and titanium products the world has ever seen. And because of their prestige and craftsmanship in their products, I had to make a visit here despite the distance from Tokyo City Center.

But before I get in on the surroundings of the shop itself, I must dedicate a post strictly on the legendary GT1 S2000 which was parked right outside the shop.

I’ve seen so many iterations of Amuse S2000s all over the world, but I have to say, the originator is still the best. I hate it most when people try to go over the top with their Amuse wide body builds. “Simple is best.”

Mercury Silver CE28 is absolute perfection on this car.

Them hips don’t lie!

PHAT ass.

You know this thing sees action with that exhaust residue.

$4.7K wing needs a fresh clear coat.

And…… finishing this post with a couple more of my favorite shots.

Stay tuned for the next part with a more in-depth look at Powerhouse Amuse and some of the cars scattered on the premise.

Evil Pedigree

This beastly NSX is as evil as they come. Rocking nothing but black, it’ll definitely scare many people away.

Gloss Black CEs are perfect match for this NSX.
