Sometimes we forget where a ton of our car enthusiasm really came from. Back in the day we would see these awesome cars that were modified for the race track and do things they never thought were possible. I’m sure the 40’s and 50’s was an extremely exciting time when it came to experimenting on how to make cars faster and look better. Today, we seem to have many of these things down to a science, and it’s becoming more of a creative process. We are constantly looking to break open a new trend and perfect current trends. One “trend” I believe will become more popular is the motorsports fitment. Meaning, functional, fast cars with awesome fitment and great amounts of low. As with many of these posts, below is an example of such. Firstly, I’m sure this particular S2000 gets a ton of track time, but it’s an example of what could come. An awesomely built car with great fitment and low.
Lets start this year off right with some REAL motorsports content. After all, we get most of our inspiration and aftermarket parts from the race track. It all eventually goes down to the street car level. It’s pretty incredible just how fast these cars are, and just as incredible is the process is takes to get a car that fast. Every little thing is calculated, from the tires and air pressure, to the suspension geometry and load, to the angle of various aerodynamics, to the weight saving, and so on and so fourth. These guys are geniuses and they are all trying to take milliseconds off their laps times just like the Formula 1 guys.
Enjoy a lap with this crazy S15. With all the modification I wonder if you could still call it a S15. Awesome!
Is it weird that I enjoy listening to tuners and builders talk about their creations? It is certainly inspiring to see what these guys can come up with, most of the time for the first time, and completely custom. There are some real masterminds out there building some awesome machines, and this is definitely one of them. Nothing extreme or over the top, but a guaranteed great performer. It sure does get you thinking, although “stance” will never die, when will we start seeing more motorsports inspired builds!? We need more enthusiasts!
This is what it’s all about, friends and motorsports. It’s great to see that these guys are still keeping the function side of this game alive. You hear and see so much stance and fitment you forget where it all started. On the race track. Great video about a close group of friend not following any trends and doing what they love.
Now let me start this by saying that I am not discrediting any motorsport in any way. I enjoy, support, and love any type of motorsport around the world. But, why don’t we have, here in the states, a race like the video posted below? I am the only one that gets REALLY excited when I see the cars in this video running around normal streets and closed mountain drives? That to me is just real, raw racing. You can say it’s more relatable. And with cars that, as a base, come from a dealership at the beginning of their life. I mean you just don’t see that type of car racing on that type of track in the states at all. I think it would be huge over here. Seeing a highly modified Ferrari 355 racing behind a modified Evo, behind a E30 drifting around the turns, behind a MK2 golf, and followed by a 70’s Porsche 911. That, to me is, racing, visual, and sporting perfection. I know I can’t be alone in this feeling. There are enough shop’s and enthusiast’s with money to fill a race like that with cars exactly like this. In the future I wanted to open a race track, but I think I’ve changed my mind. These street/road races are much more appealing. And the cars racing in them are undeniable dope.
If anyone would like to lend me a couple million I would be sure to make that happen!
Welcome all! Tuned Motion is my personal Blog about things that I experience on my own or discover on the web from my endless search of all the greatest things on wheels. I have an addiction for all things cars and it spills over to anything on wheels. Tuned Motion represents the love of all things built, tuned, and modified. I hope to bring the best in all the motorsports world in every category (and sometimes things without motors).
Ill start this off with a picture of my very first car. Wish I never sold my baby, Honey Mustard.
Hope you guys enjoy!
