starting to like it. and started to think of mods i want to do… lol definitely i want those running boards, roof racks and the hood protector shades. also HID and some huge fogs off-roading style. o yea WEDS have those Hase Spec wheels… mmm tempting. but its a wifey mobile. cant do something thats over exaggerating… lol
its hella roomy compared to my Z. went to CVS last night to get some waters and some cokes (5 for $13) and those fitted in my drunk without a doubt. the Z were packed when i had 48 bottles of water and 5 case of cokes.
this Camry was going hella crazy on a Tundra. dont know what happened, but the driver was yelling at him, cutting him off, mad tailgating, flicking the guy off, stopping the traffic… just pure road rage on a 4 south bound. crazy people. and i was watching them cracking up and i almost smashed into a car in front of me lol hahaha glad i didnt.
Sunday September 20th was Dai’s Driving Academy 4 at Irvine, El Toro Air Field. weather was nice and clear. little wind and hot as hell lol out in the field with no shade is torture without sunscreen. this time, i almost got ran over… lol thanks Jin-san… hahaha o yea btw, you can now order prints. leave a comment with your email address and i will contact you back 🙂
９月２０日の日曜日はDai’s Driving Academy 4でしたぁ。場所はアーバイン市内のエルトロ・エアーフィールド。元米軍基地です。天気は晴れで良好。風がほんの少しあって地獄のような暑さ（笑。影も無い中炎天下での撮影はまさに地獄。日焼け止め塗ってなければほぼ拷問ｗ。今回は、ひかれそうになりました…笑。ジンさん、ありがとう…ｗｗ。今回から、写真のプリントサービスを始めました。コメントにメールアドレスを連載して頂ければこちらから連絡します 🙂
started my driving academy a little early on the 405 freeway lol
and here at the venue now. peeps setting up for the track.
and here the driver’s meeting start. alot more people then we expected.
i was at Dai’s Driving Academy 3 this past Saturday.
先週末の土曜日はDai’s Driving Academy 3に行ってましたぁ。
practicing my pictures again.
stop by at Mc Donalds of course for my 2 sausage egg muffin plus extra hash brown and orange juice 🙂 and to the gas station for the large size red bull try to get my wings, water, and cigarettes to be ready for the day!!
it was cloudy the whole time but guess it was better to have it this way so that the track temperature stayed low. sucked for the vendors though because the booths were flying everywhere… lol our booth almost hit this one car who parked next to our booth.
today, i had a unexpected visitor at my office. at first, i thought it was some random solcitor trying to sell security systems and water pumps or some other etc stuffs. but it wasnt. he came to our office for some marketing stuffs for the NISSAN VERSA (TIIDA in Japan). had a great time chatting with him about the car and how the industry should expand the bridge to these market as well. currently, with the HONDA Fit, TOYOTA YARIS, are two of the top selling cars for those class. NISSAN VERSA chasing their tail lights. but for our industry, its still the SILVIAs and EVOs that holds the tuning bases. but with this current economy, which i believe it will not be back like the good old days where a gas was below $1 per gallon, these gas saver cars should be a great market for tuning market.
in Japan within that class of gas saver compact vehicles, SUZUKI’s SWIFT is the most popular. well, my guess only. the model is doing really good in the JWRC series from their first entry. aftermarket manufactures has being putting more effort in (well, only in the Japan region) for tuning, or i should say “fixing it up” the vehicle. i believe in 2009 or 2010, SUZUKI will be releasing the SWIFT in the US market. currently they have the SX4 for their line-up. plus, they are doing really really well in the Caribbean markets. just to let you guys know, i do distribute SUZUKI Sport products 🙂 lemme know if you have any inquiries. but yea, in Japan, these markets are doing very well for regular markets and after markets. compact model which is a perfect sizing for canyon runs and auto crossing, plus saves you gas? why not put our hands in it? and this does not mean, lets leave the 350Z market and the WRX market behind b/s-ing. those markets are those markets. lets just expand and make our vision a little more wider so it could be visionS. the FIT and the YARIS market arent doing that well then we have guessed. yea some people swapped with a KA24 motor in there for FIT. but that was like the only one i’ve seen which was really interesting. BLITZ has a complete kit for the YARIS as well. i think it was the super charger kit. but thats about it. dont others think that this will be a nitch but great market???
