Stupid busy…

To say that I’m busy would be an understandment. With the holidays fast approaching, magazine deadlines have been cut in half and we’re trying to complete all the work as quickly as possible. No one wants to work on the holidays but magazines have to go to print. The only way to keep the schedule consistent is to work work work….I’m doing exactly that and hustlin’. I wish I had more for you guys but you all understand how it is. I need money on my table and money to buy gifts for my loved ones so I can’t just sit around and put things off.

I did manage to get an early Christmas gift in the form of a big ass 24-inch Samsung monitor. This thing is so big I can feel my vision getting worse and worse as I stare at it….haha. It’s not as big as Mikeyyyy’s but he’s got a Mac and I’m too dumb to know how to use those things efficiently. All he ever uses it for is to answer PM’s on NWP and Honda-Tech anyway.

I did find some time out of my busy schedule this week to meet up with my homie Billy though. I known the guy forever now and every time he calls me to go somewhere I’m usually down cuz I know that dude will come through whenever I need him. It’s only fair that I reciprocate. I hate people that just call when they want something or some shit and when tough times come, they don’t even bother to offer help. I just don’t need those types of people in my life. Billy is my boy and though we’ve gotten older and have more things to deal with now then just going out and partying, we always find the time to hang out to shoot the shit.

He needed to get his car corner balanced and with some suggestion from JDMEGO Jay, he decided to go to Evasive Motorsports. I personally have never been to Evasive so I decided to go over there and check it out with Billy. I brought the good camera but I don’t know those guys over there very well so I didn’t want to intrude and just start taking pictures of everything. I just left the camera in the car and watched the guy do work on the IS300. Billy asked if it was okay to take pics and the guy didn’t seem to mind, but still, it’s kinda weird to just kinda intrude on their space and take pics of stuff that might be important to them. So what did I decide to do? Take out my cell phone and take some creepy spy shots…haha. Pretty messed up but I figure I looked more like a noob that way and they won’t get mad at me if they saw me taking pictures. A simple “hey asshole, stop taking pictures” would have worked. Not like I need anything from them or could possibly steal secret data from them. Just thought I’d give you guys a glimpse of what goes on over there. It’s a really nice shop. They have a lot of parts that are pretty rare that most shops wouldn’t have in stock. And they also have a lot of stuff that you wouldn’t normally see and would only see on the internet or something…

Here’s Billy’s IS on the rack…it was surprising to actually see the numbers on this car. We both thought that the car would be top heavy because of the iron block and turbo and what not, but weight distribution was still pretty even with the front holding 51 percent of the weight. That’s almost 50/50 weight distribution. Probably helps that he has a heavy ass system in his trunk. The car itself is a boat though and easily weighed over 3500lbs…

A really nice S2000 that they were working on…I was looking around for the Voltex kit since Evasive was the first to have it but it was no where to be found…

The guy that was working on the IS at the time pulled up a chair so that I could sit down and this was my view…

I got kinda restless so i got up to take a look at their personal time attack EVO. This thing is amazing. I love built EVOs and this thing looks like it could fuck some shit up…Full Voltex aero, gutted headlights, etc…

This thing is no joke…

After that we got hungry and headed out to Yoshinoya to grab a quick bite. I’d take pics of that too but I’m sure you can use your imagination. There was a styrofoam box with some rice, some sauce you know, chicken, beef, all that good shit. We ate and headed back and went for a test drive in Billy’s IS…this thing is fuckin fast!….oh man, I haven’t been in a fast car like that in a while. The power from that T51R just puts you into your seat. My Q45 is so slow that I could fall asleep and fall off the seat. Sounds amazing to be inside too…

That was about it…we just went home after that and called it a day. Sorry for the quality of the pics. I’ll try to come back with more shit for you guys next week once I’m all down with work….
