T-Demand USA Presents Pro-Stance 2017 Coverage…

I had a few hours open on Sunday so myself and a couple of friends made the trip down to Anaheim to check out the “Pro-Stance” event hosted by Central Pine/T-Demand USA. Most of you guys probably aren’t used to seeing these types of cars in my coverage but as you should know by now, I myself am also a VIP/Bippu car aficionado. I just recently pulled my Y33 Q45 out of paint and while I wanted to cruise down to this event with it, I was still in the midst of fixing little things here and there on it so I decided against it. We didn’t stay very long as I had early dinner plans and what not, but I did manage to snap some photos while I was there. It was a nice day out so this meet was a nice little shindig for us to go chill at for a bit. Nice job by Sam from Central Pine USA for hosting the event and even getting the president of T-Demand Japan to come out. The VIP car scene still needs some work here in the U.S. but things are looking to be moving in a positive direction. I love seeing the progression of many of these VIP builds and more and more new builds seem to be coming out of nowhere…

Enjoy…

One of the big debuts at the Pro-Stance event was this Toyota Crown (S180/18Crown) which was not only imported from Japan to the U.S., but also transported from Texas to California. The owner had planned to bring the car out to California to get the full catalog of T-Demand suspension pieces installed and dialed-in, and the guys from Central Pine got the car finished just in time to showcase it at their booth…

If you’re wondering, yes, this Crown is completely static and equipped to drive at this height, if you can believe it. Crazy how much camber and suspension adjustment is available with T-Demand products. I should also add that it is pretty crazy to see a Toyota Crown in the U.S. I’ve seen plenty in my time in Japan but I still get pretty excited to see one here. Can’t imagine what it must feel like for the guys who are seeing a Crown for the first time…

Sam Hagen from Central Pine USA’s personal Y33 Q45 build, of course running T-Demand suspension making the car capable of being driven at this ride height on 19-inch Leon Hardiritt Beils. He’s done so much work to this car just to get it to ride this low and the engine itself has even been raised just for better clearance….
