It’s pretty amazing how quickly the E30 M3 became a classic. Aside from it’s solid racing heritage, and flawless drivability, there is something to be said about it’s undeniable styling. In short, it’s timeless, it’s classic, it’s raw, and it’s beautiful. You can be sure that the E30 M3 is on every car enthusiasts list of “must buy before I die”. Miro didn’t take much time scooping up a extremely clean M and made it his own. Miro and his company JSUTAI are very good at building timeless cars, and this is a perfect example of their flawless work. Perfect fitment, subtle mods, custom BSS RS’ done at Jsutai and their personal touch with the Jsutai decal down the side. As you know we are all about the clean aesthetic, and this car screams that timeless design we love to see in of builds. Bravo Miro, bravo!
Now for our side note. We shot this back in the fall, and Miro’s M has gone through some changes and will without a doubt be a show stopper this coming show season, but we sure do have a feeling that this stage of the car will never get old to look at. So Miro, congratulations on your part in automotive history and inspiring plenty of classic builds for years to come. We can’t wait to see what you do next!
If you at all fall in love with this car as we have then give JSUTAI a shout to get your car up to the standards that they use while working on customer cars. Some of the coolest guys on the east coast here willing to change your ride into a unique, rolling neck breaker.
I’ll keep this simple. You ever, really, I mean really, wanted to see how it felt to be a race car driver minus the bathroom breaks and food eating? (Or maybe your in to that kind of thing. I won’t judge.) Well t he video below is pretty damn close to it. Due to super modern technology, via go-pro(I think), you can see pretty much what racing is like from the eyes of a driver. It’s a fairly long video, but I thought it was cool enough to post, so your going to watch the whole thing. K Thanks Bye!
Ok, that title is slightly ignorant, but I’m sure every F1 fan was extremely happy to see the new LaFerrari with the fairly new KERS system in its newest hypercar. By the way, 2013 really seems to be the year of the Hypercar, with many exotic car company’s coming out with really impressive (but mostly expensive) cars. Maybe I’m getting old, but it sure does seem like the future is here now, the amount of technology and the availability of it is staggering. Innovation is not slowing down the least bit, and its really exciting to live through. Back to the LaFerrari, I seriously can’t wait to see how it actually performs. Its going to be interesting to see just how much faster the KERS system makes it. You know, for a couple of years every hard core car guy hated the thought of hybrid sports cars. But I personally think that in this case, joining a monstrous V12 with a smaller hybrid system is well, cool. The hybrid system hasn’t taken away from the car in any way, so its something that looks promising.
I’m not going to act like I understand half this stuff, but it sure is cool to see and at least, try and understand.
I know there have to be people out there talking about Valentino Rossi making the move back to Yamaha. For any MotoGP fan this is BIG. We saw how, well, mediocre his last season was with Ducati. But I won’t put the blame on anyone, maybe he just needed more time? Either way, that’s in the past now, because he is back on the winning edge with Yamaha. There are a hell of a lot of questions I’m sure many of his fans have, and I seriously think this is one of his most important seasons yet. Does Rossi still have it? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Anyone else SUPER HYPED to see what his new design and color way will be? Rossi always seems to bring the goods.
It’s pretty crazy to say, but part of my introduction into the car game was through street racing. Heck, I met a lot of friends I know now from those late nights/early mornings out watching these races. Japan is on the other side of the world but you kind of get that same vibe from this video. Everyone knows there’s a chance of getting into some serious trouble, but the thrill and the love for cars keeps everyone out. It’s definitely a completely different skill but I know its something my friends and I can relate to. Crowds dangerously close and drivers doing things that can land them in jail. But hey, it’s all for the love.
This piece was awesomely done, and so much respect to the street drifters out in Japan. I really hope to experience this first hand one day.
I’m going to keep this short. This video speaks volumes about Isle of Man. Awesomely put together. There is a lot of passion that fuels these riders, and each of them deserves a trophy simply for the attempt at the course.
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!
There are a ton of Isle of Man videos out there. But it seems they are either highlight reels or crash reels. Sure it’s exciting but it leaves wanted more depth of the event. This is one of the first video’s I’ve seen that does just that. It’s not hard to see that each one of these riders are absolutely out of their minds, which makes then the bravest people in the world. I mean just look at the speeds they are hitting on public roads. Seriously want to go to see this race in the very near future.
Check out the videos. It’s an awesome watch
I’m a sucker for automotive history, especially when it’s about such an iconic car. If your a car enthusiast the Skyline for some is the end all be all. Heck, for many years, the Japanese didn’t even allow Hakosuka’s to even leave the island. It was and is such an honored car. It’s awesome to see where it all came from, through Prince Motor Company, and the influence of the race track. Keeping up with some of the fastest cars of it’s time must have been an amazing feat and is what would bring on it’s HUGE popularity and success. And as they say, the rest is history.
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!
