Pastrana hits deer.

Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana had victory snatched shockingly away from him in the final moments of the SnoDrift Rally, Round 1 of the 2008 Rally America National Championship, when a deer collided into his Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car.

This would make a good desktop wallpaper. Beautiful Evo 8 with gold Advan RGII’s. They are among my favorite wheels.

Nissan GT-R V-Spec test car

Video of the Nissan GT-R V-Spec doing some tests. Sounds soooo good. The base model R35 already has beat the Corvette Z06, I wonder if the V-Spec will beat the Z71? We’ll have to wait and see.

Nissan GT-R V-Spec

It has been reported before that Nissan is working on both a club racer and a V-spec version of the GT-R but we never really knew whether they were different models or the same with different names till now. Something like the Porsche GT3 and the GT3-RS, the two zilla’s are both very different beasts and that the V-Spec variant will be similar to previous versions. A 220-pound weight reduction and 30 more horsepowers with upgraded binders and suspension components are among the upgrades for the V-Spec variant.The racing version like the GT3-RS, is equipped with a full roll cage, a significantly revised suspension and of course, a nice set of Volk TE37s. When these two beasts will be offered to the rich is an open question, but check out the video of the production-based racer making the rounds in the Video‚Äôs section.

Alex’s WRX

Here’s a buddy of mine’s WRX. I’m sure you’ve all seen it at one time or another, but it was in Import Tuner a while ago and then he radically changed everything on it. He has also runs Brainchildcustoms.com. I ordered my Zeal coilovers from him and he was very helpful and nice. He constantly kept me updated with the progress. Anyway, last I talked to him I believe he is going to throw a Voltex wing on the back along with a Gram Lights front bumper. Peep his car out.

More DV/DT

I just thought I would post another picture of my beautiful DV/DT front mount intercooler kit. The pipes are nice and polished. I will try to touch up around the welds so it has a more uniform shine. Enjoy these pictures of it off the car, because I plan to install it this weekend.

If you are considering purchasing anything from DV/DT but are hesitant about the price or suffering from cognitive dissonance- don’t. Albert at DV/DT Fabrications is extremely nice and helpful. I will spend more money with him in the future. He offers quality products.

BBS Wheel Manufacturing

A while ago I posted a very cool video that explained the production process of Rays Engineering wheels (here). Now here is the same video but oh how BBS manufactures their wheels.
