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

JDM Truck – Modtaco's Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

I have a huge fetish for minitrucks on fresh JDM wheels. This supreme 2001 Toyota Tacoma fills that fetish for me and belongs
to internet user Modtaco. Unique to this truck are the 4″ flares on the rear filled with some really deep 11.5″ wide Work Meisters,
and a custom bag setup that currently pancakes the rear but also brings don the front nicely. The front features 4wd fenders
that house 10″ wide Meisters.  The truck is still a work in progress, but it looks really hot as is. – JDM Truck: Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

JDM Truck: Toyota Tacoma on Work Meister S1

“Here's mine. It's a 2001 tacoma with 18×10 & 18×11.5 WORK Meister wheels, custom disk brakes, widebodied,
fully built engine with standalone management and a GT35R turbo, 3″ side exit exhaust, JDM ITR seats…”
– modtaco


Wide stance on the front


While Taco Supreme looks really aggressive, it also packs a punch with a GT35R pushing the 325hp out of the stock 2.4.


Readers Rides section of Minitruckin Magazine September, 2009. The following quote is really impressive to me:

“…the 18×9 and 18×11 Work Wheels that evan brought back from Japan as checked luggage.”
– Ben Da Pirate – Minitruckin Magazine


Check out the rear flare, the old rims didnt fill.

“The wheels are 18″ WORK XSA-01T. They are 3 piece and are 9″ wide in front with 245/45/18 rubber and 10″ wide in the rear with 275/40/18.”
