@Not a Racist Aussie Ugh! Yeah, because Nig and Jap are so similar. I'm always referring to Japanese wheels as Jap wheels, never had anyone call me racist over it. Some people are too precious these days.

@kphillips9936 It's a drift build only once it's actually drifted. Nice car though, looks clean!
@Chris 'Haffy' Hafner Not "jelly" at all champ.....doesn't matter where I'm from as I enjoy my scene, it doesn't need to be the best for me to enjoy it. There's events every 2nd night in every city around the world. You need to travel a little more. Quality over quantity anyway(not saying there's not the quality, but having regular meets doesn't mean best street secene). But if you think so, then that's all that matters and mad props to Sydney.

@Chris 'Haffy' Hafner Um, what? Doubt it, and I'm an Aussie, so I'm all for liking to think that might be true, but it isn't.

@YipMing And there lies the problem......when events like this get too big, move, charge, the dickheads come, so do the police and then they're ruined. Compulsory coffee....LOL, can't stand the stuff....silly idea, sorry.
I don't like 911's, but I do like those Sport Classics and what Porsche did with them!!!
Looks very hap-hazard(spelling?), not very well set up....needs more car park, less street and dirt.
Love it! Love the ATS 5's! Check out the Aussie only VW Country Buggy if you want an even bigger WTF/LOL on wheels! Has an older feel to it with early beetle headlights, rather than the later head/tail combo of the Things.

@aghad @EhruMejil Well, isn't he just awesome then.....note: there's no sarcasm in that comment, legit, the guy is awesome!
@PolyMEDrummer @Pete the perfect pilot No longer an RX then is it? Ugh.
@cnk Anything old school?
@smithadamb Close, very close......but still not as diverse. Quality on par, diversity, no.
HOLY H3LL!!!!.....that 2nd sentence is enough to put me off ever wanting to go to Stockholm......and Scandanavia(Norway, Sweden and Finland at least) is the only region why I'd return to Europe for a holiday!
On topic......EVERY car posted here is amazing. Japan might have some competition on it's hands finally for epic cars of all types built well!!!!!
@JakWhite @Spaghetti Fair enough, and I figured as much on the Golf.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Welcome Back Tanner: <br />How To Make A VW Passat Drift
I didn't read it, but have gathered from the post below that he's sponsored by VW. If VW want to be part of drifting, but I'm guessing this is more about his sponsorship rather than them wanting to have a drift car, why not make some RWD cars. Or use a Golf R and turn the AWD into RWD? Obviously the chassis of this Passat is almost nil to what it was stock, so if going so full on, why not a Golf......probably the length/shape etc I suppose(not into drifting, don't get it). And why use an LS, surely VW make some of tghe best engines out there capable of big HP and torque!?!?!

Brides, ugh.....so over them.
The rest is fine, and I don't mind the mods, it's not a 911 GT3 RS or anything like that.
@scibO Looks great, but then it's all wrinkled, and still just all black, but at least it's a little different. A mix of finishes in black would look great I reckon as I suggested. Then maybe throw in some of those meaty pink/purple intercooler pipe clamps for a touch of colour.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Tradition Be Damned:</br> The Ultimate Street Mazda RX-3
@jettec03 Right, so candy red UNTAMD is still the same car it's always been, after being the original white THELAW which was previously Vez' brothers(right?). This car was the pink/flamed streeter that Ivan had, and then went candy red(what plates?), and is now back to white as the current THELAW. Confusing!
Is it bad that I saw the Kangaroo on the truck before noticing the subject matter of this article? Aussie pride I guess :|
3 weeks, 1 day ago on It’s The Little Things: A Deuce In Japan
Seems a fair enough reason......I just like the idea of sticking with the original capacity of the car, well close to anyway(1200). Whether it's exact cc's who knows, but you get what I mean. You can pick up an entire ZX12R cheap enough these days.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: <br/>Your Bike-Powered Builds
@Gary89 That splitter wouldn't last 1.5 seconds on our roads, have you been to Japan(?), it's literally like driving on glass over there, no comparison. While I agree with you 100% that I'd love to see some done like this, it's not a reality anymore unfortunately as the people with the money who can now afford to buy/modify/build these cars are either steadfast in the Aussie style/way to impress mates/the internet, and then easily be able to sell to the next guy that wants that style. That or they're wanting a factory style resto to preserve value and add $$$! Chopping up even an 808 to do this style won't happen now as they command big dollars. It's sad, because if I had the money(and if I liked RX3 coupes), this is exactly what I'd do!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Tradition Be Damned:</br> The Ultimate Street Mazda RX-3
I know, and I don't get it, the unknown doesn't have to be something crazy and off the charts, be tasteful in your difference and it'll work out. The thing with the blacked out Simmons craze is that it literally suits 1 in 10 cars, as an example if your car is turquoise, with a tan interior, white side stripes and all the chrome in place, then all black wheels do not suit! Just my opinion of course.
I don't hate the blacked out bay thing(i'm just sick of seeing it), maybe add a little colour somewhere so it doesn't just look like you masked the engine bay up and hit everything else with a can of Export gloss black. Or play with textures, some matt, some satin, some gloss, some wrinkle, some black chrome even and get a balance of difference like that. I get that it's far easier to maintain than polished, which is also overdone, but more timeless, but it's just boring now seeing black black black.
@jettec03 I did read it was Ivan's old flamed pink streeter, but then I thought I read again that it was still around or being rebuilt by Ivan. Either way, this isn't the candy red car, as it's still as is(apart from a tidy up) and has been to Perth and back, right?
This thing is tits! Pity the front isn't aged original yellow like the rest.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Big Turbo, Mad Style: The Cool Bus
So cool, definitely a path worth taking with a smaller car! When choosing a bike engine though, how does one go about it if they're not really into bikes? Capacity obviously plays a part, Suzuki seem to be the go(Hayabusa mostly), but is this for any reason in particular? More common, most power, easiest to get parts for, best for turboing?
Yamaha, Honda and Kawasaki feature less, but if for example you had a Datsun 1200 and wanted to stay 1200 just for the sake of it still being cool to say it's still really a Datsun 1200, why not a Kawasaki ZX12R motor? Any reason they seem to be less chosen(10R, 14R etc too).....not as good, not as easy to mod or as safe to turbo, not as easy for this RWD car application, more expensive to buy, or are they all really on par with each other? Any other 1200cc sport bike engines from the other manufacturers or is Kawasaki the only one with the ZX12R? Probably all silly questions, but this has just got me thinking I suppose.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER: <br/>Your Bike-Powered Builds
@dovvv The mark of the black sheep even moreso. I honestly can't believe how many people are doing the all black FR thing. Once I'd seen it 4 or 5 times, even if I wanted it as badly as I want a billion dollars I wouldn't do it, because it's already been done by enough people(let alone the 30 or 40 that have now done it, in the Mazda scene alone!). I'd rethink and come up with something else.
However as I said in the Powercruise post, no one seems to hate on the Japanese for almost exclusively running Japanese wheels on their cars, why do we hate on Aussies for running Aussie wheels? Not as much choice from decent Aussie brands, but it's good to see they're supporting local.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Tradition Be Damned:</br> The Ultimate Street Mazda RX-3
@the_escape_road They wouldn't have the same impact for this style.....but there are PLENTY of Mazda's in Aus/NZ on small diameter wheels....but big Simmons do rule unfortunately.
"In its past life the old school four-door was candy red, rode on polished FR Simmons and featured a tan/snakeskin interior" This car still exists and is it not also owned by Vez(UNTAMD?).....this car was always white, or at least the old THELAW was a white sedan.
While I love everything about it with the black and white theme with no chrome......I just hate that this blacked out Simmons, blacked out engine bay thing is already so played out in the Mazda scene it's not even funny! Perhaps a slight skew on this might have helped set it apart....just my opinion of course and I guess then it wouldn't quite be in full theme, so I get it.

I hate to be that guy, but bags and wheels just aren't impressive enough mods to be seen as having "built" a car(don't get me wrong, I love all the cars on this page though). What I do find impressive is that you know every car owners name!!!!!!!!!

@BBerryski Unfortunately I agree, I think to some extent people love to have "haters" these days......why? I'm not saying that's what's happening here, but it's common. I like the car, but ditch a few things and take away some of things that really are for race only.

@FraserinFinland Like the Japanese running Work Meisters/SSr Professors or TE37's perhaps, or Europeans on BBS or OZ....same same.I get your point though.
@Emptypie I'm no Simmons lover, but I'm no hater either, but something that really grabs my goat is how people hate on Aussies for running Aussie wheels on a lot of the cars here.....why the fuck shouldn't we!?!?! No JDMyo fanboi's sook about the Japanese running almost exclusively Japanese branded wheels, do they?
@ae70 One poorly constructed sentence, but ok. Kinda correct, but very narrow minded.
@MatthewBortot Bet he is, or some squid with too much hate on the brain. Lets all follow trends of the world as he says we must. Bogan Donk is a bit right, but that's more of a wog/leb influence.
@loslogo You sound like a sloppy fart.....we do plenty good here!
@Smiggins @smithadamb I agree....I started to think this post was going to be a full on boganfest of Commodores, utes, Fords and V8's(and it is), a few Mazda's and Datto's thrown in doesn't really show the diversity here......a follow up post with some different cars might help, but unfortunately PC is mostly boganville and while I don't dislike these cars AT ALL, we do do other things just as well!
How long before those wheels end up on a bagged MK6 Golf GTI....LOL!

Who wouldn't take the time to bare metal and fully restore every nut and bolt to perfection on an L10A or L10B Cosmo these days. The values have tripled and quadrupled in the last 18 months.......well worth it to do them perfectly now!
