Low Friendly Maps for the PreMeet!

Because many of you have asked, we took the time to make these maps to the event! We call them the dump maps, aka, for dumped cars. These are the three different scenarios/routes that you would possibly take if you’re coming in from any direction.
**Disclaimer** Although we try our best to route the best way to get there, there are still bumps in the roads. You MUST use common sense and drive slowly through just like you would on any road you’ve never been on with your slammed car!

From I-10 West or I-45 North:

Dump Map I10W

From I-10 East:
This map is for anyone coming in from the East side, aka I-10 East. Take special precaution of the road RIGHT after the railroad tracks near Clinton street. Also- STAY ON THE RIGHT LANE when you take the bridge over the water on Lockwood Drive.

Dump Map I10E

From US 59 South or I-45 South:
This is a map for anyone coming in from the south side, aka, US 59 South, I-45 South. You’ll basically loop around downtown.
If you drive a normal car, ignore this map and just take 59 North and exit Polk St.

Dump Map 45S 59S

We’ll see you guys at 6pm today!

The WekFest USA Official WekFest PreMeet Hosted by Mayday Garage

Last year we hosted WekFest USA’s official pre meet, and it was the largest we had ever managed. Over 1000 cars jam packed in downtown Houston and it was glorious. Dubbed “the best meet I’ve ever been to” by staff at WekFest, we expect this year to be bigger and even better! Join us the night before WFTX on Saturday, 10/18/14 at 6pm at Moon Tower Inn located on 3004 Canal St right outside of Downtown! We will have MANY cars out for this one including a ton of out of state guests. We will have our very own Ricebox food truck there serving the best damn Chinese food in Houston in addition to having Moon Tower’s famous hot dogs and local Texas craft beers! If you missed last years meet, you have a chance to redeem yourself this year and celebrate the WekFest TX weekend with us!! See you there! Spread and share!!

1013mm x Mayday Garage

Some time ago, I had asked John Zhang aka 1013mm, if he would want to come to Texas for fun and to hang out with Team Mayday Garage. JZ graciously accepted and had asked me to find him a few cars to shoot while he was here in Houston. I did my best to find what he wanted, and now the time has come for the Mayday boys to show this SoCal photographer how we do it in the dirty south! The festivities begin next week, so keep your eyes peeled.

The drift tofu van/missile. We will NOT be shooting it.

Everything’s Lower in Texas

If you’re not from Houston, you may wonder why every other tuner car is so low here. “Most” of Houston is low car friendly, typically in the suburbs and the freeways are usually the flattest compared to other states. But it also helps that every other car is also bagged here. I’ve always found it funny that everyone claims that their city has the worst streets for dumped cars. I can honestly say Houston for the most part has very driveable streets, and starting next week- the fastest as well.

Static?

Definitely bagged.

The reverse rake on this one seems odd.
