Kday! C6 2016 Coverage…Part 3…

Oh shit. I am so behind on content. There has just been so much going on lately that I just haven’t been able to sit down to post stuff up. I’m trying to get all the videos together so they post on a more consistent schedule but the photo coverage actually takes a huge chunk of time, being that I have to come up with all the captions and what not. Anyways, enough about all that. Today, we’re going to pick-up where we left off before SEMA with photo coverage of the 2016 Kday! event. Shota Mori came through with the fantastic shots as usual, especially in the pouring rain, and now we get to see all the builds that almost appear frozen in time from Takeshi Kobayashi’s annual event…

Things have been crazy lately but I swear, there is so much content coming. I’m literally sitting here multi-tasking as I type this, editing photos and rendering video. I think my PC is going to blow up by the end of the month with all the shit that it has to go through. Oh, if Year8, SEMA, VIP Festival, and all the other stuff in-between isn’t enough, Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle event is tomorrow and Friday so I’ll be going out there to cover that. Again, bear with me folks, the good stuff is coming…
