makes me so damned happy…

To know that besides Orido-san running his ridiculous FT86 with the 2UR-GSE for D1GP, there’s also Ken Gushi who’ll be competing in Formula D with his own Greddy sponsored FT86. You know what’s the best part?? No gay ass LS motor. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Mr.Cid Advertisements

holy crap it’s been so long…

And I can’t wait to get back into full swing. The last three months have been one of the craziest, highly stressful, and most exciting times of my life. Besides the obviously significant and historic events that have happened for me and my family, this recent venture into opening up my own shop definitely cements…

i don’t like cars…

I obsess over them. All.The.Time. That includes the parts and gadgetry that go along with it. Granted I’m no elitist or JDM connoisseur, I consider myself well rounded enough to hold my own. That’s with any type of vehicle. Ever since I started selling parts a few years ago, I’ve come to appreciate what good…

been obsessing…

About Skylines. Again. I have no idea if I’ve put this up here before. Let’s just say it’s a friendly reminder from your local auto obsessed nutjob. Mr.Cid

project, anyone???

Remember these??? Yeah you don’t. So I’m over here in my office, daydreaming of shit to build when this came to mind. The K-1 Attack kit car. Lots of domestic guys are always talking about the GTM and how a turbo’d LS6 will be the bees knees for their fantasy kit car. Well, this one…

just a quick look…

At how cool an MR-S could be with the right (expensive) clothing and equipment. The popular Toy Story car. If only Lightning McQueen were Japanese. Of course non of us could afford Super GT shit, but my goodness I’d like one. I’m pretty sure the pic below is in Sepang. One day, a project car…

definitely something to look at…

By the time I have my mid-life crisis, I won’t need no red sports car. I’ll be tired of all that rough riding, no AC/Heat, harassed by cops bullshit. I’d rather have this. A revisit into the Artisan Soarer. The excessive fog lights can be fixed, otherwise it’s a nice ride. Mr.Cid

it’s nice to see…

A 180 that isn’t built for sliding. Garage Defend. I’m pretty sure this is a URAS kit. I love the way this car looks. Mr.Cid

living life…

a quarter mile at a time. Oh god. The Quarter Mile FD waiting it’s turn for a run. Mr.Cid

the celica we never had…

The ST205 GT-Four is definitely the holy grail for us Celica owners. With the venerable turbocharged 3SGTE, bulletproof drivetrain, proven all-wheel drive, and solid chassis, this car is the bee’s knees. Although it is usually overshadowed by other cars of its class. I have no idea why. The fact that it was never sold in…

so i was ripping up carpet…

Not that kind of carpet. Actual floor carpeting. Anyway, I was pulling this crap off with Chris (racerx7) when we got into the discussion of how awesome it would be to own one of these… The last iteration of the Lexus SC or Toyota Soarer for you JDM-minded folks. This here car up top was…

asm please…

Remember back in the day when you’d go into a chatroom? ASL please. Bahahaha. Another awesome Tsukuba machine. Mr.Cid
