Skunk2 is coming out with these insane looking K-Series timing chain covers. I damn near shit a brick when I saw these! From the sound of things they will be available soon... if only I could have a set for my B-Series...they are still sick as hell though!

Bought some black nuts today

Of course I was talking about lug nuts, I already have my own "black nuts"...get your mind out of the gutter people!

OldmanJames' awesome toys

I seriously think I'm going to have to start messing with R/C cars again. Not long ago I could be found at the local R/C car track or at "Mile Square Park" flying one of my R/C planes. I ended up slowing down on the hobby when I got a "real car"... fellow car enthusiast "OldmanJames" has just inspired me, lol. These are f'ing DOPE! Time to head to the hobby store.

Give this stuff a new home!

RHD EG from Texas

A few months back I met a bunch of cool people from Texas during Eibach. One of them was Ramon Briones, who I shot a "Featured Elite" video for Skunk2 Raing. I also got a chance to meet a bunch of his friends that came along with him. They were all awesome, down to earth people who seemed to ALL love cars, even the wives! Of the group I ended up staying in touch with a cat named Mike D., no not the one from the Beastie Boys...SMH.  He and his wife Amanda were just taking in the scenery. Amanda had some of the most amazing eyes I'd seen (second to my little latina mammas eyes OF COURSE), and Mike was simply a "cool ass mufucka" (I think he had some gnarly colored eyes too, no homo) and they both liked to laugh. During our time around "the shop" Mike told me about this RHD Civic Hatch he had while another one of there homies, Efran, tried to buy my RT4wd Wagon off me, I honestly almost sold it. I told Mike I REALLY wanted to see the car and he kept his promise. After I read the mod list and saw the pics, I just had to share it with everybody else. 

See you in TX Mike!

Who doesn't like pin-up girls?!

RSX Type-S + 1st to 2nd

Gary is such a trooper, "yo tell 'B' I'm sorry, the car kept pulling to the right and I had to let off." Next time we gotta find more road for him to work with...

PlanB Motorsorts, Orange, CA

I recently went to visit Mike and Doug over at PlanB. Tucked away in the City of Orange, Mike and Doug work on things as easy as intake and exhaust installs all the way to full builds. If you're looking for a place that actually wants to help you with your car, PlanB might be a place you want to check out.

Mike and Doug working side by side installing a Skunk2's Pro Series Intake Manifold and Pro Series billet Throttle Body.
If you're expecting massive displays, neon lights, a waiting room with drinks and snacks, Option videos playing on a flat screen, and music playing in the background, sorry. However, if you're looking for a place that will get the job done, you're in the right place. They are a fun bunch to be around and truly love cars, if you ask Mike might even take you for a ride in his Evo.

87mm Bore and ready for boost. This should be in the car once they get bored with running the car all-motor.

Sheepey's turbo S2000

Seems like more and more people are "trying out the whole video thing". One of them being Rodrez,  seemingly more and more interested in the "RECORD" button rather than the shutter button. I'm starting to think that it might be time to move into another "hobby", oh wait, this is actually what I do... :hand on chin thinking: Enjoy!

August was a good month for Mike G.

I've "dealt" with this Mike G. character for many years. I remember stepping on his Nike Airmax's and spilling hot sauce on the homie Santos at a "JDM John" (RIP John Tanji) meet years ago, LOL. Mike G. has always been a very fun person to be around, and his laugh is one you can' forget. Mike G. has taken "TANK" through a number of phases, from NA, to turbo, and back to NA. Although many may claim they "know" him, few were actually at his sons baby shower, I know because I was there... I'd say we are more than "car homies"... we are friends.

Everyone knows of TANK going into hibernation for over 5 years, but never giving up my "buddy" forged ahead and brought TANK back to life like a true CACK! This last month proved that his struggle was worth it as he placed at both Nisei Week Showoff and the Motion Auto Show. Stolen pics below.

With that being said, I'd like to give a big congratulations to the CACKSTER, Mike G. I'd also like to welcome him to Facebook, HAHA, glad you finally got with the times doggie! I'm glad I was able to see it all come together every step of the way, sharing those top secret pics all the time really made a brotha feel special and always sharing stories about the "good old days" is what keeps me motivated to keep chipping away at my own car. I'll keep our long conversations on aim on the DL... and won't tell anybody about that one time... HAHA! Aye, tell Kenji to keep the poo-poo in the potty, because Uncle B says so! Fingaz.

We all know Morgan Jade, or at least know of her. Honestly, she is probably one of the most laid back people to hang with. Morgan is a true car enthusiast and although some have had negative things to say about her she never seems to be hurt by it, she always seems to continues on her path. A while ago, she was involved in a car accident in her S2000, which basically put a stop to her "spirited" driving. She still campaigns her RHD at the track, often piloted by Oscar Jackson Jr. There have been whispers of her going back to her roots, getting back into drag racing. Recently Sport Car Motion unveiled a red Civic Hatch, turns out this is the car that will be hitting the drag strip, possibly with Morgan behind the wheel. Could she be the next Lisa Kubo? Does anybody even know who Lisa Kubo is? Stay tuned...

Say hi to her at the track, but don't be a creep and ask her to marry her, or tell her you love her... lol. You can follow her on facebook though.... go here

I just can't get enough of this! Windows down, open road, sunglasses on... you get the picture...

Oddy Sickness

Found these Oddy Vans lurking the interwebz. I still want to get my hands on one of these, it would be perfect to carry AutoLife TV's equipment and crew. Every time I run this idea past the homies they look at me in shock, then ask me "how you gon look pull'n up at the club in a damn van B?" HAHA! I think I could pull it off, if I ever went to "pop bottles"...

DUDEBLVD: Motor Union 2

Long time buddy, Micheal Albritton, captured some video from Motor Union 2 down in San Diego, CA. The 5andaDime family put together another fun gathering in the beautiful streets of Downtown SD, which is just one of the unique elements of the event. Motor Union also brings out a wide variety of vehicles. I think its rad to see all kinds of different enthusiast's come together. Wish I could have made it, I still remember the first Motor Union like it was yesterday...
