Top Secret 370Z’s Update: Brakes, Body Kits and Balls.

The Mayday Garage crew got a chance to check up on the twin white Z’s being built by Planet Zero and Baker-Jackson Nissan. As you recall, these twin Z34’s are being built in preparation for Smoky Nagata’s arrival here in Houston. These 370’s will undergo a very drastic transformation as they will go from showroom stock, to track/show shock. Maydaygarage will be here documenting this event, and this past thursday, I got a chance to see what these cars were going through.

Baller Status: 20″ ADVAN RS-D in Bright Chrome

So if you remember a couple of days ago, we had released some photographs of an 8-Pot Greddy Big Brake upgrade for a 370z that is sitting quietly in a vicinity here in Houston. Well, those big brakes need to be paired with some big baller wheels, especially for a car with a butt and front as wide as a Fairlady 370z. These pictures are only of the front, I never got to the rears. As you can see, these fresh new Advan RS-D’s are going to sit very nicely on the 370z. I still can’t get past the Bright Crome finish, it goes hard, hella hard.

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.

Houston, Tx: Speedhunters @ Access Zero 42 / Coverage pt. 1

As the title says Speedhunters.com was in Houston this past weekend. They were invited down by John Leigh (aka Emotiongear), owner of Planet Zero Japanese arcade center here in Houston, Texas. Rod Chong and Linhbergh Nguyen from SH were scoping Houston for cars mirroring their “low and stanced” November theme on Speedhunters.com. On top of the coverage of cars that were shot for the November month of Speedhunters theme, Mr. Chong and Mr. Nguyen were also present for Planet Zero’s monthly Access Zero meet. This event was big, had plenty of nice cars with a strong theme as people from Houston showed what they had for the duo from Speedhunters.com.
