Eibach 2009…Part 3…

Ahhh..is it part 3 already?…Seems like only a couple of hours ago that my piece of crap browser was giving me problems.If you haven’t noticed, there hasn’t really been any pics of the Phaze2xDoods! aka Hot Stuff International cars and peeps. That’s because I wanna highlight the other guys first and give them a chance to be seen before everyone just jumps on here looking for pics of our cars. It would also make a nice closing to my coverage of this year’s Eibach meet. On with it shall we?…

Everybody is trying to be different nowadays and try different things to set themselves apart from the rest of the pack. This engine bay happens to be one of them and the owner did an excellent job in my opinion of trying something different that doesn’t totally ruin the car. I couldn’t really get a good shot of it because it was sitting in the center row and people kept walking but it but it also had a set of refinished Stark wheels that also looked pretty cool. Not sure who the owner is but the bay came out nice….

Here is also something different. Not really sure how I feel about it because I thought the car looked fine the way it was before. Maybe I’ll feel differently about it after it’s all painted and what not. For those of you who are unfamiliar, this is a Orthia frontend. You see the conversion done more on sedans and maybe it’s more fitting because I’m not sure if it flows very well with the hatchbacks…Work in progress though so I’ll reserve judgement for later….

Nasif’s Civic is always on here. I’m sure you’re all familiar with it. He’s got some new things done to it though. I think he just recently added a rear diffuser. He also got a daily CR-X too so he doesn’t have to drive this car around everywhere anymore. Which in socal is always a plus…

Parked right next to him was Carlos aka Mugen Boy’s 4-door. Another car you always see here. I never get tired of seeing of it….

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TIME…..Not a bad looking Civic right? At a glance could you tell that those “CPFs” are fake? Well I was sitting down under our canopy and spotted this from pretty far away. I heard some guy walk by and go “dammmnnn CPFs” so I guess the owner got the reaction he wanted out of them but sorry to say….this dude is fakin’ the funk…

First of all, Sprint Hart CPF/CPF-Gs never came in 16s so that was a dead giveaway. That and I guess the white was kinda obvious. The Spun wheels have a different finish to them that makes it easily spotted. I guess you’d have to look at the originals enough to know but anyway, the size is what I saw initially…

Second of all, the decals don’t even fit. It’s just like, chillin’ on the wheels. They probably don’t fit because the wheels is bigger than the 15s that the stickers were meant for…Also, you’ll notice that the wheel for some reason lists like every bolt pattern there is. I don’t understand that at all but these wheels are 4×100 so there should be no reason why it says “5×100” on the wheel…

Here’s a better look at the wheel sizing that’s been cast onto the face. No reason why it should say “5×114” and “4×114″…Also another shot at the stickers that don’t fit. I wasn’t really running around trying to find people with fake shit on their cars but this one just happened to catch my eye when I was sitting down and it was pretty clear that the wheels were fake….Another dead giveaway…

…were the seats. At least he didn’t go as far as to get the seats restitched with the Recaro logo… Car didn’t look bad overall, it’s just that the knock-off stuff takes away from it…

On the opposite end of faking the funk is Rywire’s CR-X, which is about as real as it gets. There’s just so much detailed paid to this car that you probably wouldn’t notice all of it in one sitting…

The bay itself was so sick that I didn’t even look at the interior of the car or much of the outside of it. It drew a constant crowd throughout the day too and it was definitely deserving of the attention. Unfortunately, I heard his transmission broke on the way home and he ended up having to tow the car the rest of the way. Unfortunate but I’m sure Rywire will get it running again in no time…

Tegboi’s DA on MF10Ls….obvious-stater I am…

Here’s a pretty nice DC2 I spotted while I was walking around on the backside of the building. I think I only walked through there like twice. Looks like it has alot of Spoon gear on it. The black on black is a good look…

There was a whole line-up of TLs parked in the back. They were all parked together which kinda takes away from them cuz they all look about the same, but they all had nice wheels and good stance. I saw them on the way over and these TLs look great on a nice set of wheels. I really don’t like it when people park like in the little dip portion of the lot. Sure it makes your car look lower but it ruins pictures. I wish people would stop doing that. I didn’t take pics of some cars just because they were parked that way…

If you’ve attended a HIN or any major car show lately in socal, then you’ve probably since this TSX before. It’s an extreme build and everything about it screams “show car”, which makes it even cooler for it to actually drive to and attend a meet….

Didn’t get any full shots of Big Mike’s Prelude but everyone that reads this site has seen it plenty of times. I just like taking pics of the bay and I thought I’d show you his gigantic NWP4LIFE windshield banner….

I don’t know where Travis was parked but I didn’t even see it when I was walking around. I only spotted it when he was about to leave. The first time I took pics of it I didn’t even know it was his car because I was so used to seeing it when he first got it. Awhile back it didn’t have anything other than suspension and a set of SSR mesh wheels….

K-turbo…

Clean CR-X on Work S1s…

This RSX is from somewhere in Texas I believe. There was a thread on NWP awhile back when someone mentioned that they thought this DC5 was better than As1 Brian’s DC5 when I mentioned that it was the RSX to beat this year. There’s definitely alot of custom stuff done to it but I’m still sticking to what I said. I just think Brian’s RSX is better executed. Not taking anything away from this one of course, I just don’t feel that the wheels belong on this car and the copper bay almost kinda blends in with the red….Very nice build though….

CCWs seem to be making their way onto a couple Hondas lately. I can’t blame the owners either because these wheels are beautiful. If I still had a Honda I might have considered picking up a set for myself….I wonder what’s under the hood of this coupe, everything else on it looks good…

949 wheels are starting to get pretty popular too…

Meeting of the Accord minds right here….To the left is Timmy from Supastar who owns a couple Accords and to the right in the Chronicles tee is my homie Chris who made his first trip out to socal ever. He got to experience the socal Honda community firsthand, enjoyed the California heat, and even had a chance to experience his first earthquake…. We were hanging out at my place after the meet and while we were waiting to take him to the airport, the earthquake hit and this fool got up and started running…haha…where he was running too I have no idea but that dude ran like a motherfucker…He came back later as was all “I’m pretty freaked out right now”…haha. My response….”Uhh…where the fuck were you running to?”

That’s it for all the other cars. Part 4 will just be Phaze2xDoods/Hot Stuff content. So if you’re not interested or just plain hate us, let’s go to the “support the chronicles” section and buy some shit from me okay? Out.
