SEMA 2013 LEXUS IS350

sema_2013_lexus_is350-4

Lexus unvealed their DeviantArt competition winner design of the IS350. Some people are saying “it’s too extreme”… that’s the point guys. It was defiantly an eye catching piece in the Lexus booth. Designed based on the competitions winner Rob Evans’ design. It’s super aggressive, 3 piece wheels, satin/matte white paint job, etc. It’s dope! More photos after the jump.

With Formula Drift and SEMA preparations out of the way, let’s get back to business on this Respect The Roadster project! A performance clutch was one of the top items on my list. Though the Miata felt really good in third and fourth gear, first and second felt a bit weak and noisy, so we looked to Advance Clutch Technologies. We went with their ZM2-XTSS – XT/Perf Street Sprung kit and light weight XACT Streetlite Flywheel. This set up will allow for smooth engagement on both track and in daily driving. The kit is also designed to handle as much as 315 ft/lbs of torque and more than enough horse power, even if we decide to turbo the car later.

Oh, the Fairlady! I first fell in love with the old school Z after recruiting one for the 2010 Enkei Wheels SEMA booth a few years back. Never was a fan before but now, it’s definitely at the top of my list! Enjoy these awesome pics. All photos belong to their respective owners. – Alex

corolla te27

Paul Harrison knows his way around old Corollas. He found his first TE27 in an alley not to far from his house. It came equipped with a cage and side draft carbs, Paul and his brother thought it was their ticket to get into rally driving. Fast forward to 2004 and Paul acquired his 3rd Corolla, a 1972 TE27, the one you see here. He stripped it the day he got and started on rust repair and adding some custom touches right away.
