Wow! I honestly don’t know where to start with this rod. It’s just so different from a “regular” custom hot rod. I love the angled chopped roof. In a weird way, it gives it a truck look to go along with the dually’s in the back. Yes, dually’s in the back! With the open frame and black chrome exposed gas tank this really is a perfect Rod. And it’s different enough to stand out.
Sorry guys, I’ve been really busy with school. I really haven’t had the time to post. Any ways, I’ve been really into these Hill Climb videos lately. I feel like I’m the only one that’ll think that a US legit hill climb type of race will go over EXTREMELY well. I mean I would pay A LOT of money to stand next to the road as a car, like a race-spec Merci, fly past me. It’s just insane! There is just something about seeing these big dollar, high horsepower cars, not on a multi-billion dollar race track, tearing up some mountain side.
I better start saving now to buy a mountain, because I want to see this happen in the states.
Came across this picture a couple days ago and i would LOVE to know what the heck this motorcycle is, where this picture was taken, and where can I find more info! I mean it looks absolutely sick! Going almost sideways on a narrow tire bike on a dirt track. The chrome helmet helps with the look as well.
Please, anyone with more info?
Here is coverage of the latest Word Up! drift session. Like I said before, we really need something like this in the east coast. It looks like a really fun and chill environment. I can say for myself, if something like this was accessible to me, I would be building a drift car. Anyways, besides that its a great edit, and it actually catches the Toyota truck with the V8 I posted up before.
This is also another edit done of the same session from FatlaceTV. Good stuff.
I swear this is going to be the next trend in the states. Small pickup trucks slammed and stance out on some crazy offset wheels. They keep popping up here and there, and I really like how they are looking so far. And its it’s a pickup you can just throw your fixie/ruckus in the back when you get bored at the shows.
It’s pretty crazy how big and exciting the Dakar Rally looks, and yet there is next to no coverage on it. I’m sure a good amount of car enthusiasts won’t even know what it is. I thought the video below was a decent timeline of the race and what goes on behind the scenes. I’m guessing since it covers such an incredible distance it would be hard to follow it. Eh, maybe one day a system will be worked out.
Until then here’s a glipse.
I just realized I seem to post up a lot of videos. A lot of quality stuff out there now. This one is actually pretty old, but the edit and filming looks perfect. Great soundtracks and tells the story very well.
Looks like a fun event.
I have a feeling most people aren’t going to like this car. A little Miata with a body kit and dropped to lengths where it seems undriveable. But I think that’s why I do like it lol. I usually don’t like body kits but this kit with the side and rear diffuser looks right. The fitted Rota Grids look on point as well. I know it doesn’t have much practicality, but who cares.
Yet another Berg Cup video, I know. But I just cant get over the incredible variety of race cars on this course. Amazing cars going complete balls-out. Its crazy to see it. I feel bad for all those crash’s, but it is part of racing.
I will still ask this. WHY is an event like this NOT in the states yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????
Found theses pictures from the most recent Fatlace WordUp! drift event. I swear these small rear wheel drive trucks are going to be the next trend in the states. This one really isn’t an example of a stanced out truck but it does seem to have some type of swap. Just look and the size of those rear tires and the amount of smoke its putting out. Crazy! And you gotta love the cargo rack in the back.
