Katsuki purchased this JZX100 right when he got his license since 2008. He’s been able to meet a lot of people and other “car junkies” through this car. He mainly drifts this car but in the past he’s done everything: Circuit driving, tons of car meets, and even 0-400m (drag racing).

It’s been a while. What better way to come back from a break with a crazy Mira? I’ve always liked the Mira. Fun cars with some pep, tons of aftermarket support, good gas mileage, and now legal to import into the U.S.! These cars haven’t been too popular among people in America but it’s probably because they don’t have that fire an R32 has. Similar to the R32, you can make these into pretty much whatever you want: Track car, parking lot show stopper, or just a nice commute A to B car. The Alto-Works version have higher H.P. than the standard versions and the motors are super stout; being super light weight also helps with handling! But this car isn’t for any crazy time attacks, it’s about style!

Naoki runs the YouTube channel “Low.stylejapan” (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd6oYhd_eZ7KKF4mx1LWr7Q). If you enjoy watching VIP/stance cars at meets, then it’s a fun channel to keep up with! He made that one video of the Y33 Cima snapping the tie-strap off the front…Not only that, he owns a very nice 18 Majesta! We will be running through it today.

Hmm, the A31, not as popular in the U.S. as I was hoping/suspecting it to be. If done right, these can be a very fun cars sharing components from other Nissan(s) cars. Similar to other cars of the era, you can build it to a lot of different styles and/or tastes. I’ve always enjoyed this body style and wish we received it in the U.S. Today, we will be looking over Yuto’s Cefiro. As most of the cars on this blog, he uses it mainly for drifting. I found him from knowing Ryosuke (https://exec-11.us/2017/02/21/2304/ This car is for sale) as they are friends. Continue reading “Yuto’s Nissan Cefiro”
A quick write-up. I have always really enjoyed his JZX100. The ride height and wheel fitment is perfect! This fitment is something not seen too often in the U.S. Here, it seems to be either the following: tires are too stretch/not stretched enough, ride height/rake is off, or wheels are too sunk in or way too far out. To me, Kazuki did it right…

He has owned his MarkII for some time now and I must say, it is a very clean example. The JZX seems to be an extremely popular choice in Japan. So much so, that some people go with the C35 Nissan Laurel because it isn’t seen as much. If you aren’t too sure on what that car is, you can read about one here: (https://exec-11.us/2016/12/22/shos-c35-laurel/). On top of all that, the aftermarket support for these is almost unlimited, similar to the Nissan S-Chassis. Overall, he has done a very good job with his car. It’s extremely clean over all. Comfortable/usable interior with a low stance! On top of that, he drifts his car occasionally. You’ll see some differences in the few varients of the JZX100 chassis options as I will be writing about a JZX100 Cresta next week.

Ryosuke has been driving S13 chassis’ since he was 18 years old and this particular car for 2 years. I didn’t get the exact “why” as to him choosing the S13 chassis but he seems to like them a lot. …And who wouldn’t like them? They are light weight, great handling, and awesome aftermarket support. That’s why the 240sx has been so popular for so long in the U.S. In my opinion, Ryosuke’s S13 is what the American street-style scene is trying to be. And I say “trying to be” because his driving style is one of the top. Being able to hold large angle and smooth transitions while having the aesthetic looks of a wide body kit and deep wheels, matching! I’m sort of rambling because I keep looking at the mod list in my WordPad as I write this intro and it’s just beautiful. So many good mods, so many good parts! The car was completely stripped down and revamped!

Toru told me it was fate for him to drive a C34

I’ve always liked the looks of the FC3S RX7. And on top of that, the powerband of a rotary is so enticing and exciting. The way they rev and how boost hits. The cars feel fairly lightweight and don’t really have a under steer feeling as much as other cars from the era. Even the interiors of the cars feel really nice and sturdy for the time. And who can’t be mesmerized by the redline buzzing…My friend let me drive his Turbo-II once and since then, I’ve been hooked; even if his didn’t have 3rd gear… Continue reading “Wataru’s SAVANNA RX7 GT-X”
In today’s car scene, a lot of people like vans and think of them as being cool and different. Some people wouldn’t ever think of doing one up, even in today’s so-called “market” of car modifying. I remember a time when someone brought up “van”, and everyone would think of a Chrysler Town and Country… Continue reading “Yuuki’s Honda Odyssey”
