There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

Here comes part 3 of 3 of our Slammed Society Japan 2012 coverage. Not much really left to be said that hasn’t been said already. Thank you once again to Mr. Koji Karimata for always providing me with excellent photos from every event that he attends and allowing me to share a piece of the Japanese tuning world with all of you guys. It’s cool that Mark Arcenal and Fatlace have grown to the point where they can have huge turn-outs at events all over the world. Crazy how quickly he and his brand have grown over the years and props to him for being a smart businessman and above all else, a true car guy. It’s because of events like these that we get to see what the Japanese have going on. Many times all we see are the major demo car builds from major Japanese tuning shops but events like this bring out a variety of different enthusiasts and we get to see all types of cars, from drift builds and the drift crews they represent to the average Honda guy. I love looking through these photos and I feel like I’m one of you guys and looking through the coverage as I am processing the photos for this site. This looked like a great event to be at and who knows, maybe one day I’ll get to head out there and check it out. For now, the closest thing we got are photos…Enjoy…

I thought this NC Miata was just absolutely badass… Reminds me a lot of an Amuse S2000 and the hard top looks great on there…

8060941923_f4c610c865_o-Edit

Always loved how aggressive RX-7 builds are in Japan…Here we don’t see FD3S chassis all that often and when we do, they are usually very clean and simple. In Japan, these guys go all-out with their FD-chassis. Really liked this pink FD on BBS LMs…

8060930831_802f9f40a0_o-Edit

R31 Skyline sedan on mismatched Work XSAs…

8060937287_40a6c98345_o-Edit

Clean EF Civic sedan with some ATS Cup wheels that you don’t see very often on Hondas…

8060941139_158f9af2c2_o-Edit

Kanjo-styled Integra Type R with bright green accents…

8060945099_2dd27b9946_o-Edit

If I remember correctly, this is the same BMW M3 on Work Equips that busted his oil pan at the Hellaflush Japan event last year…Good to see that the little mishap didn’t deter him from continuing to ride slammed to the ground…

8060948260_5b612ecd10_o-Edit

5-series Bimmer from OLIVE Special Car Produce…

8060958038_4a4c60a9ae_o-Edit

Been a huge fan of this second gen. Toyota Soarer ever since seeing photos of it from last year’s Hellaflush Japan event….Bad angle with the TE37SL in the way but I’m sure you guys remember it…

8060958855_ff520bb184_o-Edit

Turbo Soarer from N-STYLE CUSTOM, as was the 2nd gen. Soarer above…

8060962530_18ddb8b906_o-Edit

This Toyota Crown wears a slightly different color scheme than the other N-STYLE CUSTOM cars but still rocks the same Volk TE37SLs…

8060960873_57f85dd901_o-Edit

The engine bay of the Crown has been resprayed in a candy red tone with a 2JZ-GTE swap….

8060961501_18707879cb_o-Edit

The most wild-looking of the N-STYLE bunch is this Nissan S15 Silvia with E46 BMW front end conversion…

8060964714_a8a16b02f1_o-Edit

One of my dream cars that I’ll one day never own is the JZX100 Toyota Chaser…Just beautifully designed cars and essentially 4-door Toyota Supras…

8060965434_6219ac061a_o-Edit

Another JZX100 Chaser, this one with the matching red but with WED’s Kranze LXZs…

8060968137_85664c803a_o-Edit

3-series BMW sedan sitting on some really aggressive Advan Racing RS wheels…

8060970997_1c9d2d2a47_o-Edit

Love the front bumper on this Toyota Altezza… Wise Sports wheels don’t look bad on the car either…

8060976528_c3e65c2e6c_o-Edit

Chaser with aggressive aero from Garage Inoue…

8060975061_6968b1fedb_o-Edit

This one is a little more mild compared to the previous three posted, looking clean on black Work Emotions…

8060975817_994bf2d864_o-Edit

Subaru STi on what looks to be JLine wheels…

8060985281_8c2a487704_o-Edit

Ridiculous-looking demon/Oni-camber on this Toyota Crown Majesta…

8061089880_5576478b2d_o-Edit

While the U.S. got the Japanese version of the Toyota Rumion as the second generation xB, this was the true 2nd gen. Toyota bB in Japan… So the U.S. pretty much got a mundane-looking box while the Japanese had a version that looked like it was melting…

8061093662_fe7e0373a4_o-Edit

Haven’t heard the name mentioned in awhile but I believe this Toyota Cresta is from WELD Technique Factory…Not 100% sure but the clam-shell hood is their style and the pin striping along the side looks to spell out “WELD”…

8061095164_29aeb966a5_o-Edit

Bad ass Datsun B110 Sunny from Technical Factory…

8061095810_6401de3a6d_o-Edit

Flared-out with deep dish SSR MKIIs…

8061101566_2b48c940da_o-Edit

EJ Civic coupe on BBS wheels from “George & Sons”…

8061098745_80c0e14f2e_o-Edit

Nicely tucked bay with B18C-swap…

8061103573_7febe73dc7_o-Edit

Really like the styling of this Eunos Roadster on Work Meister S1s… I remember seeing this same Roadster last year at the Hellaflush event as well but it was on Watanabe wheels at the time. Both are a very good look but I think I prefer the previous Watanabe set-up…

8061114374_49db9c5d30_o-Edit

A beauty of a B4 Legacy on TE37SLs…

8061112777_90814dc586_o-Edit

Subaru Impreza S204 on gold-faced BBS LM…

8061116808_ca503797d3_o-Edit

Glad to see the Legacy community is thriving in Japan. Rare to see these over here because they are still so pricey to own…

8061119084_6e72038c75_o-Edit

Here’s a BL (4th gen.) Legacy on WEDsport TC105N…

8061121820_f29d99e29f_o-Edit

Mazdaspeed RX-8 on bronze TE37s…

8061119095_0eff2b82e4_o-Edit

Zenki S14 Silvia Navan with custom radius’d fenders and Volk TE37SLs…

8061119665_34a974ebbb_o-Edit

Supermade Instant Gentleman aero on this S15 Silvia hammered on Work Meister M1R…

8061124398_356d1ae550_o-Edit

VIP Toyota Celsior on BBS LMs…can’t say I’m a fan of the new aero designs popping up the last couple of years in the Japanese VIP community. The lines just look way too gaudy and sharp, like it’s blatantly out of place on the car…

GReddy/Trust Tra Kyoto 6666 Customs Rocket Bunny Scion FR-S demo car… yes, FR-S and not 86…

8061130191_fd6caea4a5_o-Edit

190 Benz on some rare Epsilon Raguna wheels…

8061130935_c807da545b_o-Edit

Kazuhiro Furukawa’s turbo EK9 Civic Type R from OsakaJDM/Car Craft Boon!….

8061133055_5146a97093_o-Edit

E-AT Civic hatchback also from CCB/OsakaJDM… I have some pretty cool shots of this thing from the “Kday” event shot by Shota Mori coming next week…

8061144710_73cdbeb316_o-Edit

Closing out part 3 of 3 with a shot in the parking lot of the Fuji International Speedway of two VIP Toyota builds, one a Crown and the other an Aristo…

That’s a wrap for Slammed Society Japan…have a great weekend everyone…
