Back in 2015, I had a chance to see Evasive’s first version of the Time Attack Smurf with the Voltex aero love, HKS supercharger, gorgeous roll cage, it was just a perfect S2000 build/goals. How could it get better? How can someone top a perfect balance of looks and speed to an S2000.
Evasive has been teasing us for a few weeks that Voltex Racing newest aero kit will come to the US for its SEMA reveal. The above video came out during SEMA week and it just gave me goosebumps on what to expect when seeing it in person.
We finally got to the booth and the Smurf did not disappoint. It’s not a widebody kit, its a hugeeeebody kit. It’s insane how wide the new Voltex Racing kit is. The front splitter, the fenders, the spoiler, oh man oh man, after snapping pictures I just stopped and looked at it more, seeing the vents in the fenders, the bumps and shape of the rear quarter panels, it just oozes fast on the track. Good thing it’s already equipped with a TODA 2.3L stroker engine, HKS SC kit, OS Giken 7speed sequential trans, this will scoot. Enough talking, enjoy the pictures and show some love. More SEMA coverage coming throughout the month!
The Eibach Meet’s have always been an iconic meet back in sunny SoCal. Dating back to 2004, the meet has almost always been hosted at Eibach’s own company grounds. With every successful year the Eibach crew achieved the cars kept getting better and better. I sadly missed the meet when I lived in Cali as I was heading to FL that year.
Thankfully someone at Eibach decided to bring that energy and excitement in the Honda community to the East Coast. With the first event held last year in Orlando, Fl at the UTI Campus, it was a huge success. I sadly didn’t make it to last year’s event because I was in the hospital. This year thankfully my liver and I weren’t dying so I polished up the old girl, packed the cooler, chairs, and gf to our first Eibach Meet. Plenty of clean Honda and Acura’s from old to newest were there. I’m proud of our FL Honda scene here, we have much to learn from the mecca of the Cali scene, but we’re heading to the right direction. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
What a way to end the year with an awesome show like Wekfest. This is my 2nd year attending and plenty of amazing builds, with a lot of them seeing for the first time. With this show concentrating more on the builds you definitely saw a much higher caliber of builds than most shows that Florida hosts. A lot of people bring their A game to this, with plenty of unique and creative takes on cars. Not going to bore you with the details, so i’ll let my photos speak for themselves. I guess we’ll see what 2018 holds for me, The Rolex is up in the air for me right now, hopefully I can get in again but it’s not looking in my favor. Thank you so much everyone that has peeked through my post and photos, it does mean a lot. Till next time.
It’s been a quite year on the photography side of my life. I’ve had lots of personal events happen to me throughout the year, not to go too much into detail but I almost died do to some issues with my liver. But here I am, alive, strong, and ready to get back to what I love doing. For this year’s Simply Clean it would be 11 months since I’ve done anything with my camera. Had to break in the new year with a good piece of glass to rent. I’ve always wanted to try out Sigma’s Art Series Lenses, so I picked up their 35mm Art Lens and wow it is amazing! I wish I had the USB lens dock to further calibrate the lens to my 1Dmark3 but it worked really well out side of the box. Sadly the weather didn’t play 100% so it kept wanting to focus on the clouds on the paint of the vehicles. Plus being almost a year out of practice it took a few dozen shots to get back into groove of things.
The event itself though was amazing, I think this year I saw more friends than ever. I can’t thank Nickoli enough for creating this event and making it better and better every year. Since the first event I always felt I was home surrounded by friends with one passion. Enough of me blabbing, expect one more coverage next month for Wekfest. Again, enjoy the snaps!
Wekfest has been a big name for car show events for a number of years now. Most of you have seen coverages of their San Francisco / San Jose event and has seen some amazing car builds the west coast has to offer. Wekfest back in 2011 started a USA tour to bring true car enthusiast together under one roof and show off actual full car builds rather than seeing wheels, bags, and calling it a day. I was honored by the Wekfest staff to show off my own build at the event. It’s far from a full build from what I saw at the event but it is slowly getting there. Lots of mixture of vehicles the Wekfest staff choose for the event and I think it was a great way to end the year. Hopefully I caught enough of the show so you guys can see how many awesome builds us East Coast enthusiasts have brewing. Till next time guys which I think will be for Rolex 2017. Enjoy the pictures and show some love like always.
It’s been awhile everyone! Well, to the one or two who still follow this site. I don’t blame you, but thank you for still sticking around. Hopefully I’ll be updating this a little more as there are a few events coming up.
Well this past weekend I attended this year’s Clean Culture Meetup at the West Palm Beach convention center. Quite a bit different from the other events this year so far. it was different as I didn’t have to wake up at 6am to get ready and drive a few hours out to the meet location. It started at a sun high’s afternoon at 3pm, so I took a nice morning to check over the car and then at noon I set off to SoFL. Thankfully as I just got off the Florida Turnpike my good friend Sparky from Cloud9ab just got there as well. I pulled the good ole I know so-n-so inside to the front person at the gate to go on through. It was a good meet overall, it’s been a few months since my last car meetup thing, so it was good to get out clean the ole girl and show off for a bit. Enjoy the set everyone!
I love seeing this S2000 owned by Matt Hamilton out in person. I’ve seen this S2000 ever since it had just a set of black CCW on a meaty setup back in 2011. I actually I haven’t seen it in almost a year and I was speechless with how it looks now. It sounds so beast with that J’s racing exhaust spewing out all those fumes from the spinning HKS supercharger. So jealous of the parts he put on his S2000, he’s definitely pushed me to get back on modding my own S2000. I actually got 2 big mods coming tomorrow and next week, hopefully I can hang with Matt till I save up some more money…like a milli.
This past week Titan Motorsports open their doors for their annual open house. Every year, Titan Motorsports holds a dyno show, car show, and bikini girl show…what better way to spend a gorgeous florida Saturday? Lots of nice car’s this year inside the Titan compound, especially my boy’s S2000. Good thing I didn’t take Summer, she would have been jealous and looking at me mad that she isn’t looking that good. It was a bit weird driving my newly bagged Audi Avant for the first time to a car show and leaving my S2000 in the garage. Enjoy the pictures everyone.
What’s going on everyone? I do apologize for the lack of updates. It’s been a busy last few weeks. The biggest weekend started on the 29th for me of January, it was my first time being an actual official media photographer at Daytona Speedworld for the 2016 24hours of the Rolex. Covering the event for both Enjuku Racing and S3 Magazine, I was a bit nervous to say the least. I’ll be posting my full coverage soon.
But for a little down time, I was able to attend my first S2000 Mega Meet in over 3 years. The host none other than Kamispeed was there with open doors to welcome us S2000 owners like the previous years. I snapped a few pictures, but I was more talking to owners and friends more. Sadly it was cut really short by good old Florida rain. Enjoy the few shots and stay tuned for my Rolex 24 coverage!
Here’s another mini article from SEMA last year, I almost didn’t see S2000 as it was wedged between lifted Jeeps and Trucks. My eyes lit up when I saw it, I’ve never seen the new J’s Racing GT Widebody kit in person. Even crazier it was a carbon kit, big money just for the kit itself. This S2000 was just a real life REVHARD Magazine, so many JDM parts on it. ProjectU brakes, J’s Racing Type V CF Hood, Recaro Limited RS-G Bucket seat, CF Mugen Top, just so many cool parts that dress this widebody S2000. Enjoy the pictures everyone, until the next feature!
