@mbretschneider Interesting backstory. I keep forgetting about other countries with severe limitations as far as motoring is concerned.

@777 TE37 Gravel Spec reminded me of Ueo's D1GP-winning (and groundbreaking) AE86...what a car!

@AustnWhite Ground Control coilovers (basically Koni "yellows" but with GC sleeves), custom springs rates (using Eibach springs), and GC extended top "hats" (mounts) @ $1000. Kosei K1 Racing wheels from TireRack @ $460, Buddy club's original P1 Racing (not QF or SF) were made by Kosei in Osaka, Japan. And some good DOT-legal semi-slicks @ $500 +/- and you've got a solid system for less than $2K
@robzor @KevinDykyj MR-S was the poor man's Lotus Elise...
@Alex Rios Sounds like you weren't around long enough to appreciate them...many iconic rims of that era suffer the same fate.
Ah the glory days of Japanese car life - no hellaflush, no rice.
@Chris Nuggets Lotus and Honda you say? That actually might work.
1 week, 1 day ago on HONDA TO CONFIRM F1 COMEBACK FOR 2015
@240z lover Yeah look what happened to Honda when it's began to satisfy everyone BUT the loyal owners...there's nothing, absolutely nothing, in Honda's range now that's remotely sporty.

@Dawsaurus @vroomtothetomb I rather have the rich douches drive Lambos that everyone "hates on" (but secretly aspires to) than ricers devaluing the brand's image.
@mbretschneider Perhaps for someone with money, this is not such a bad idea...it's not like it's gonna be the owner's only car. In fact, most if not all, mature Miata owners also own another vehicle for the things you've described. Having only one car that supposed to "do it all" is already financially irresponsible as it is, you're prone to wasting not just money, but also time in the long run, not only will you won't be able to enjoy the car to it's fullest potential, but then you're forced to keep things that will weigh you down like back seats for example, or a stereo, etc. Old-timers will tell it's always wiser to have multiple cars than one, of course it's not always financially feasible, but it's something I feel that should planned in advance.
@KirillIvanov I bet the kid inside you will disagree...
I can see myself driving this, for times when you want to be left alone...
@Cano Not just hot rods, but cars in general...you learn more about cars on Grassroots Motorsports Magazine's forums than on this hype-fest...especially when it comes to said "Japanese-themed articles", namely Hondas or any FF for that matter...and I'm sure others feel the same way who aren't part of the hellaflush-stance-VIP-RWD-drift crowd.

@staryjaponiec The faster you get over it the faster you'll learn to appreciate and build your Honda how YOU see fit, instead of wasting your resources on proving knuckleheads why you chose Honda (or the other way around, some of us grew up around Hondas, our dads, uncles, or friends' older brothers had one).
1 week, 6 days ago on THE DREAM CAR REALIZED: A SOCAL STYLE NSX
@tenpennyjimmy Because Japan does it with "heart"? I'm being both sarcastic and serious at the same time. Sarcastic because there are plenty of builds that get overlooked because of the "trendsetters" like these, and serious because, Japanese tend to be a bit more passionate about cars than mainstream America.
@ryanproulx94 It's a wrong thing to do it to BOTH the Civic and the NSX, after all they're made from the same "sauce"...
@sean klingelhoefer How does Quiafe stack up against name-brand Japanese LSDs?

@sean klingelhoefer That's what I keep telling myself too...

@japanophile25 Different strokes for different folks.
Wow, just wow...you guys @ SH have really stepped up the game with the last few articles on hot rods, cruisers, gassers, and what not.
