OTWeb Video: Ken Block’s DC vid on Crystal Meth.

I called in to my job today on account that i’m getting sick, and with my line of work, I have to talk to a lot of people. So while the rain was killing any hopes that I could at least wash my car today, I sat down and watched some DVD’s that I haven’t gotten around to doing yet. One of those DVD’s, DSport DVD #10, has the Ken Block Gymkhana 2 video on it. While it definitely looked great on my TV, it reminded me of a video that was posted on our man Alexi’s Blog, NoriYaro. In this version of the same video (kind of), it was remixed by a guy that MUST be trippin’ on acid. The result? Pure mayhem.

To get the full effect, you have to play this bad boy full screen.

Enjoy!

Random Snap: Dragging Ass.

Sometimes being low comes at a cost. In this case, former MaydayGarage feature car owner, Mikey is seen here testing out a new Dart Izumi exhaust only to find out that because the car is super slammed, the exhaust has only about a 1/2″ clearance. Time for some modifications by the guys at 786Motoring!

From Japan and back: Hajime’s RB26DETT Powered 240sx

Japan is a country well known for many things. Mention the word Japan to anyone, and initial thoughts may range from Karate and Sushi, to Anime and drift cars. Not many people will say that it reminds them of home. Unless, of course, you happen to be Hajime Maki.

If you live in Houston, TX, and have been to any of the 40+ car meets held by Planet Zero, then you have undoubtedly seen this pearl white beauty before you.

Getting Down to Business: Jonas’ Toyota Corolla AE86

Mondays. Oh how I despise mondays. Mondays to me mean two things: 1. it’s gonna be another 5 days before the weekend, and 2. it’s time to put on my game face for work and get down to business. For others, mondays may mean something else, and I’m not sure what mondays mean for Jonas, the owner of this particular AE86, but I’ll tell you one thing, he knows what business is, and this corolla is screaming it.

Even at a standstill, this AE86 begs to be driven.
