The Eibach stuff you didn’t get to see…

I’m sure by now, the majority of you have seen the pages and pages of Eibach coverage that’s been posted up throughout the internet forums like H-T and NWP4Life. I myself have enjoyed them because it’s always cool to see something that I’ve seen but through the eyes of someone else. It makes it that much better to be able to enjoy that same car over again and perhaps spot something that you haven’t otherwise seen before. My friend Chris from crsfoto.com made the trip out from Chicago to attend his very first Eibach and he was cool enough to share these following shots with me. You’ve all seen the cars at the actual meet but what about what happened leading up to and after Eibach 2009? Think of it as a “behind the scenes” look…

This was right after Eibach. We were all heading home and Chris decided to get some rolling shots of us on the 91 West freeway.I still had to take Chris to the airport later that night so we were heading back to my place. The Element had so much stuff packed in it like a Canopy and my burnt ass so Chris’ friend actually had to drive him there before heading home to Simi Valley…

Living proof that the new set-up works and runs. So many people have been talking shit about how it’s a show car and how it’s undriveable. It’s definitely everything but undriveable. Even I was a bit skeptical when I first heard of his specs but I know Arnel puts maximum effort into making it operational. Trailer? Never…You wanna talk about function? It’s meant for cruising in Southern California and it looks like it’s functioning like a motherfucker right here….

Chris also had a chance to meet up with all the guys at Showstoppers the day before. A lot of them met up there to get their cars detailed and to shoot the shit with eachother….

You really have to see this hatch up close to really appreciate it. I think Chris does a pretty good job trying to capture it though with his camera…

Apparently this was the detailing guy that was hired to clean some of the cars. He kept insisting for Chris to put him in the “magazine”….haha…

I like this shot of Chase’s CR-X. Kinda shows you how small those things are for someone to have to kneel down just to speak to Chase. Either that or the guy is a giant…

I’ll let the blatant advertising slide just this once…haha. I didn’t even notice the new valve cover at Eibach. Then again, I don’t even remember the hood being up at all that day….

S2kjay and his S2000 from the east coast. This thing was definitely a hit at Eibach. If you take a closer look at the intercooler you can definitely tell that this thing is driven. When I say “driven” I don’t mean like “down the street” either, this boosted S2k came straight from the other end of the country…

Speaking of driving out, I’m sure you guys have heard by now about the adventures of BonB and how he fucked his cylinder head up on the way out here. This was taken that night when I first arrived to hang out with all the east coast guys at Do It Dyno. It was strapped down and getting a fresh tune. That was the night when I ran into the biggest group of white kids ever…haha. In all seriousness though, all those guys from out east are cool dudes and it was nice meeting all of them…

That’s about it…I heard there were stories from the Compton street races, lots of drinking, and strip club debauchery but all of it wasn’t captured unfortunately. Probably some anal tossed in there somewhere as well…

    • Yeah but we can’t use the ones of Mikey because they’re being saved for another feature in a mag that it was shot for…

  1. I love these behind the scenes posts. And yeah you can only catch a glimpse of Mikey’s car in front of Arnel.

    And seeing Chase’s Rex is cool and I doubt he’s going to sell it haha…
