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!

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!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year’s over the weekend. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for me, but I’m glad where things are heading. Photography wasn’t my highest point for the year 2016 from the previous years, I’m hoping to change that this year. My biggest photography event has been The Rolex 24hours so I’m hoping to get media credentials to bring you some crazy photos. Lots of car meetups coming this year, Eibach will be coming to Florida for the first time for a huge Honda Meet, maybe going up to TN again for the Riverside Meet Up 2, going up to Virginia for Spring Fest, and maybe SEMA this year. Hope you guys stick around, it’s going to be a busy year for my camera.
For now here’s a quick shoot of Joseph’s gorgeous 993 RWB Porsche at last month’s Winterfest Meetup in Tampa. There’s also a sweet mini documentary of the buildup made by Krispy. Enjoy the video and my shots, get ready for The Rolex!

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!

I come from the JDM side of the car scene, I’m use to seeing TE37’s, RG2s, fender flares, and big wings on cars. Just recently migrating to the euro scene it’s rare to see Audi’s, Mercedes, volkswagens with JDM wheels and what have you. What’s funny is that I asked my friend “I wonder how TE37s would look on my A4 Avant.” Oh what an awesome surprise that awaited me in Vegas.
The crew over at Allroad Outfitters answered the question for me. They equipped their vehicles with an array of JDM flavor. First up was this black Audi SQ5, lowered on KW Suspension not on bags like the norm. A set of black TE37s with fat meatty tires all the way around. I couldn’t believe how clean and simple this set up was on a SUV. Then at the corner of my eye, a huge APR spoiler bolted on a flared out S4 shined in the sunlight. A car i’ve only seen on instagram was right before my eyes. 100% custom carbon fiber flares front and rear, allowing those 18×12 ZE40s to wear 335 Toyo Tires all the way around. Yes, 335 tires on all corners, jaw was dropped. Their latest car to the crew I didn’t find till the next day in the Toyo Tires section. There actually talked to one of the guys from Allroad Outfitters, super nice dude, and I’m sad to say that his name escapes my mind at this moment. A brand new Audi S3, fitted with their latest custom made flare set to make this beauty even wider from the factory. A set of blood red TE37RTs with yet again 335 Toyo Tires all the way around. It’s amazing how much room is still left to play with these flares slapped on.
Well I’m converted! I love my audi even more now that it can pull off any look it wants. You can go all VIP Show or full on street race car look. Allroad Outfitters definitely has me looking at my Avant very differently than before.

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!
