    Have you heard of them? They make some pretty cool cars in my area so I went to introduce myself and take some pictures. They sell sexy carbon products like their aero canards that you can see on the 180SX and R35 GT-R in the pictures. Cool bunch of guys. I'm thinking about buying the purpley 180SX in the pictures. They promised me a good deal if I enter drift competitions in it!

    Nob Taniguchi drives for them in Time Attack and their new R35 is doing quite well. :worthy:

    Enjoy the pics.

    The shit you see on car forums is only half of it, imagine all the mad shit you see, and times it by about 20, and thats how bananas it is, and how much stuff you will buy.

    Ive never been anywhere im dying to go back to before, but Japan I fucking love, its like heaven for me, and not much of that is the cars really.

    The min I got some more money, im off there again, love it.
