I think this first gen. GS is the first in the states to rock oni-camber on a static setup, but I could be wrong. I think it’s pretty badass. It takes so much balls to rock a car this low and wide. I’ve heard that a correct toe-in on the tires, and you save a lot of tread. Who know exactly what “alot” is, but I’m sure anything helps with such a extreme setup. Prop to the owner for going this hard.
It’s something that comes with every hobby, industry, and culture. There is always someone who is willing to push boundaries of what is normal. If it’s done right, it becomes the next “cool”. Now, of course I won’t get into the differences between classics and trends, but a change of pace is always good every now and then. Over in Japan there is a huge movement of oni-camber. And although I don’t think that trend is going anywhere soon, I do see that the Japanese are experimenting with new things. This is probably the first time I’ve seen them offsetting the wheels so much that the cambered wheels are poking beyond the fender. Usually the uber-wide wheels are cambered to a negative number incomprehensible and tucked drastically underneath the fender. But, this is different. Personally, I think it’s dope. Will we be seeing more of this? Who know, but I love the thought of boundaries being pushed and seeing the creativity of people from around the world.
I think if you have paid attention to my blog, you would gather that Japan does everything better. They also have very, very different trends and styles. This very much includes how they mod their cars. If you haven’t heard of “demon” or “oni” camber, it’s basically cambering your wheels until the car basically looks like a hovercraft. I personally thinks it’s absolutely outrageous. I don’t even think they do it because it looks good. Looking at the two videos below, it shows just how hard the Japanese roll. I mean, here in the states, rolling this hard just doesn’t happen. And I can promise you they are both rolling static. Look how low they are! Take a second and think how you would drive these cars around your neighborhood.
I have the utmost respect for these dudes.
Before I start this post let me clear something up. I was recently corrected on a mistake I made on a previous post, which is fine. I would be upset too, if someone thought my wheels were fake as well. BUT I have no reason to bad mouth a car or it’s drivers decision. I didn’t make this blog to talk trash. I made it to share things I come across that would interest my viewers. If I don’t know something, I’ll say it. I love cars. Nothing else matters.
Back on track. I was looking through the pictures from Sessions Plantinum VIP Fuji Speedway Meet and found MANY amazing VIP cars. One really stood out to me in particular.
I think it’s the combination of the color, along with the super cambered rear wheels. There is just so much right going on with this car. The subtle radius fenders is a mod not really known in the states, but I have a feeling it will be catching on soon. This is one of those, damn I wish we had this car in the states, moments.
Ok, to be clear, I really am not a fan of this culture in Japan. I understand it has a cult following but I just don’t get it. Although I do respect the people who run it on their cars. I mean driving inches from the floor, static, and on a tire that probably goes every couple hundred miles. Gotta respect how hard they roll. The video below I found sifting through some Japanese videos. It’s probably the lowest most cambered out car I’ve ever seen rolling. I also chose to post this because it’s girl owner. HOT!
