Friends Rides – Soaring Happi Lexus SC300 on Work VS-XX

Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19" Work VS-XX
In japan the SC300 as we know it is referred to as the “Soarer”. I’m guessing it means to soar, or fly, smoothly like a bird. This
Soarer is owned and built by my good friend Mistahappi. I’ve known MH for a while now and he is one smooth and happy guy
if I’ve ever met one. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX

MH started out with a mint and rare 5 speed Lexus SC300. 5 speed SC300 are very hard to come by, I know he waited a while
to pounce on the right specimen. He soon after purchased a Auto Couture body kit, 19″ Work VS-XX wheels, and brought the
car down with a Universal Air, air bag system. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX

Let me tell you, I have ridden in this car, it is smooth and it attracts attention. You might
think low profile tires and bags would provide a suspect ride, but like I said, this car is
smooth! This car may not have many mods, but it has the right combination of parts to
be daily driven, and to turn heads. – Lexus SC300 Soarer on 19″ Work VS-XX

Fake Nardi Steering Wheel

Im sure everyone has seen the youtube video “Fat Guy Bends Nardi Steering Wheel”, but look what could also happen

“personal experience from a fake nardie… they suck.

was a silly move buying it in the first place but i thought being just a corolla it would be fine.

this happened to me when i was driving, luckily at a small private track, nothing disastrous came from it. but its not a nice feeling. litterally snapped off in my hands. f**k china.”

Stay away from fake parts boys and girls, they can lead to danger.

Rare Parts: TRD and Toda 4AG Tuning Goodies

TRD Multi ECU:

Real TRD parts are hard to come by, and I’ve never seen this part before; the TRD Multi
ECU Controller. This unit comes with a 4 position controller unit so you can tune on the fly! Its
for early 4AG engines, so most likely will fit: AE86, AE92 and AW11. May fit others as well.

TRD Part 89661-sp051

BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

Porsche 911 on BBS RS

I was watching a replay of the Barret Jackson Auction Scottsdale 2011 on Speed Channel the other day and spotted this 1985 Porsche 911 wearing a nice set of one of our favorite wheels:  the BBS RS. This spiecimen of RS appears to be of the 16″ variety, and color coded to the Porsche’s hue of red. They also sport full height caps and look to be at around 10″ wide in the rear. This Porsche sports a Slant Nose front end and isn’t bad either. – BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

The Porsche ended up selling for almost $35k
