[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 Visits Garage G-Force

After an exciting day at Tsukuba Circuit, I decided to explore Tokyo a bit the next day and start my car shop hopping journey that following Monday. As Monday approached, I had to make sure that I was strict on my schedule because I was traveling strictly by public transportation, and I wanted to ensure that I get to the shops before their closing time. For my first stop, I decided on Garage G-Force. As many of you know, Garage G-Force is synonymous with Mitsubishis, especially the Evos, and since they’ve been hitting it big in time attack, I knew I had to pay them a visit.

A train ride to Yokohama Station and then a short bus ride later, I was here. This was actually one of the more easily accessible shops on my list, so that was a big plus.

Outside the shop, as you’d expect was nothing but Evos.

Powerhouse Amuse R1 Titan on an Evo X right outside the shop. You know that’s $$$$$$.

And as you move inside the shop…

It felt like Christmas came early…..

Further inside, I spotted a gorgeous Evo 7 and a special something perched on the lift…

The most sexiest S15 you will ever see. If it looks familiar to you…..

Yes, it’s this same Vertex Edge S15 as seen on Yokohama/Advan Wheels ads. Or otherwise known as, Nobuteru Taniguchi’s S15.

I ended up staying for just 30 minutes or so because they were busy dynoing a VI in the back and there was a pretty big language barrier between me and the guys at the shop. Non spoke English!!! But regardless, I was glad I made it out here, and I can’t wait to share my next stop with you guys. Until then…..

Tsukuba Parking Area

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to hit up the famous Daikoku Futo PA on my recent trip to Japan, so these few Tsukuba hard parker photos will have to do. There were actually a lot more notable cars in the parking area, but I was too anxious to head towards the paddock area so I just skipped past them.
