The Zeros to Heroes, they came a long way from learning pace notes to actually using them, from Scandinavian flips to actual flicks. The boys had done their daddies proud. "The amateurs built the ark, The professionals built Titanic" These boys threw their rear wheel drive fun stuff and left for some muddy front wheels action. About a year ago, when Francis said he wants to go for a rally reality show on television, I seriously thought he was a joking (he is well known for his sense of humour). Rally is always known to be one of the "NEXT LEVEL" of motor sports and with just faith alone, he headed for the big screens along with his team mate, OBK. Together, they share our passion for motorsports - Do first, Think later. Today, they are not only celebrities on the TV screen, they are also winners from the rally championship. Kudos
He's trying to explain to the television crew the difference between rappers, and rally drivers. "at the gravel, my team mate does the rapping, and I let my steering and pedals do the show", he said. Francis also added that they go to school and they are not from the triads.
Here he's trying to explain the freshness of the papaya from the papaya tree he almost hit on the course. "juicy", he said.

My boss says I might get an early bonus. :D

When we were sharing some of our car accident experiences here with some of my business friends in Taiwan, they told me about some "Magic" workshop which is quite popular in Indonesia and they said the technology was originated from Singapore. I was told that they could repair dents to a near perfect condition without repainting the car.. So I went to youtube and looked it up.. and I came across this..
My friends also added that you are only allowed to sit at the waiting room without being allowed to see what's going on in the work space.. within 2 hours, you will pay a small fee and collect your car.. Well, I thought it would be really cool if it works. In actual fact the people behind the scene are from the states, and in this video he'll kick the fender to a visible dent.
then he slowly shapes the fender back with a rubber/PU hammer.. very fine job I would say.. but when the news was spread across the sea, it was speculated to a whole new level, I was even told that the dented headlamp housings could be restored. NONSENSE.. but.. whatever that's in this video is already magical enough for me.. I think now drifters would add RUBBER HAMMER into their tool boxes.. :p
DinNismo's "ceffy in disguise" went for a photoshoot for PRO TUNERS Magazine.. Well, at last he took our advise and slammed the baby to the ground.. NEXT, lower profile tyres + hipari.. :p
Rumour says that there's someone who is going to buy this masterpiece soon.. :( So much memories in this car.. This pink colour machine penetrated my Genting Drift hymen.. I hope she will end up with a good owner as good as Din..

Joe says, "I'm looking for tyres now to stretch on the Rims of God, and we'll be off for our first convoy." HIPARI and paint.

Daijiro Inada, owner of option magazine, the magazine which is responsible for the engine oil running in my veins. Founder of Tokyo Auto Saloon, the exhibition thats in my bucket list. Owner of Ogura Clutch, the racing clutch that gives the best kick. Founder of D1GP and D1SL, both of the most poisonous drift events in the world.
still looking fab.
So this is what a Japanese TT session would look like. Check out that miata. It's a grass cutter.
"TT session - TT stands for Teh Tarik (Tea), majority of the car owner clubs in malaysia or automotive enthusiast would organize night gatherings at our local 24hours restaurants for tea. Well, this culture has been on since a long time ago. Sometimes, a TT session would also lead to a convoy."

S2000 V8? If you know what's sitting in the engine bay, I would consider it as a sleeper car already. Too much effort has been put in to fit the engine. I don't even wanna imagine how it is to run sideways. If you were wondering, the transmission and driveline is from the Mitsubishi GTO.
ENGINE: LS7, 7Litre V8. Every square inch counts in the engine bay. Very ambitious and original transplant job. Bravo.
When it comes to monster engine transplants, room is always the main issue. They even custom made the steering system just to fit in the engine. Check out the caliper. YUMS
Some of us might have seen these 987402934780293847203487 years ago. But these two babes definitely are the most outstanding s chassis convertibles in the world. I still could remember the first time I saw the Falken ad on the magazine. Into both extreme ends of car modification. VIP vs RAT. We have to agree both of these babies would make heads turn. It's just the matter of taste. I would say I wouldn't mind having any of those.
