Tired of the slammed stance of the JDM cars, need to be unique and try something new? The next possible trend to come from the land of the rising sun. Slammed volkwagen vans, hippie vans for those who grew up or knew of that era. But would it still be considered JDM or GDM?
When it comes to buying used parts, people should take caution. Most of the time it's basic parts that don't really go bad. But when it comes to electronic devices, there have been times that i've installed them and they end up being junk.
Now i'm back redoing a setup for a car cause the above ecu was bad from the get go. Unfortunately, the owner is serving our country and can't get a hold of the seller of the item. It really sucks for buyer who spends hard earned cash to purchase something that ends up being an expensive paper weight.
For some of us who like to use aftermarket spark plug wires may have experienced this at one point or another. Spark plug wires slipping off the cap. The way you can tell is when it starts to sound like the distinctive boxer engine of Subaru. Unfortunately, it doesn't include the power. Zip tie the leads, before a romp on your favorite piece of tarmac, is a must. Though I wonder when the FT-86 arrives on our shores will it sound like a WRX. If it does, at least you know you can make your AE86 sound like an FT-86 by disconnecting a spark plug lead.
I don't know who may even remember this meet, since it was small. A few years back, it was all about Honda, drag racing, and shows.

When I first got my Corolla, canyon runs were quite the norm. But then initial D began seeping into America. Then all these chinese kids started showing up and crashing. Cause the first bootleg copies were subbed in chinese. Then I left and my dream of becoming king was left on the mountain. But then I discovered track days. It's much safer.
