So we are finally getting our coverage up from SEMA this year. We apologize for taking so long to get the “official” pictures up but boy has it been a task. You see the day before I left for SEMA I got an email from our webhost saying th...
Some days are better than others, they just are. This is one of the those days. Thanks to my newest sponsor, whiteline and UPS there was a package outside my office door when I returned from lunch. New parts makes me a happy boy.
What’s in th...
We at Jade are super excited to welcome Meguiar’s and their awesome line up of products as our latest team sponsor. This is a great honor to have not just one car selected but to have them pick our whole team to represent them. This is an hono...
In addition to the custom big brake kit East Coast Garage and I did last weekend we also fitted a set of Evo X Recaro seats into Project86.
Of course you can’t just take the Evo X seats and throw them into a FR-S. There is a great deal of modi...
Today I was reading my favorite tech blog and I came across an article about 3D printing and how it is going to fundamentally change how we acquire goods in the the future because they are going to become affordable to buy and use really soon. Mostly the article is talking about how manufacturers are scared out of their mind that Continue reading →
So it has been a day or so since I heard about the tragic death of Paul Walker. It seems odd that I would care so much about the death of an actor. I mean it is not like we were personal friends, but I feel like I lost a friend.
A big thanks goes out to the crew at Circuit Motorsports for putting on a really great meet and show this weekend. The turnout was pretty damn good, it is the most 86′s I have personally seen in Continue reading →
By now everyone has seen the story and video about the bikers vs the Range Rover. If not it is posted above. Basically there is a Range Rover who gets caught up in a pack of slow moving bikers. Then one of the bikers decides to brake check Continue reading →
In this video Crawford Performance hands over the keys to their “C Spec” BRZ to rally car guru Bill Caswell. He takes the car out to the redline time attack at Buttonwillow and did quite well. God I need the turbo fairy to come and leave one of these under my hood.
Exciting news for the end of this year (November) PS4 and Xbox One will be released, and this hot new game called “The Crew” is coming out early 2014 and we can’t wait to get our hands on it and start our crew! Have a look at the trailer, let us know what you think.
This guy at the drive network is the damn MacGyver of detailing. He uses a pencil, a hole punch and crazy glue to do his touch ups. Dang this guy is awesome. Learned some new stuff here, like how he waxed the area around the chip to minimize paint getting where you don’t want it. It was also new to me to hear that he mixed the paint and clear.
In the latest installment of Drive Clean, a web series I am loving by the way, they tell you all about clear bra and how it works. I like they way it is so informational and I feel like I am learning something.
I have never been that much of a fan of the clear bras because I hate seeing the lines and I thought they always yellowed.
Supposedly they have improved in recent times and they are not like they used to be even a few years ago. I may consider this. I already have a rock chip on the car pissing me off right now lol.
Lego has the awesome site where it lets people suggest sets that they should make. You post up your idea and then try to get people to support it. If you reach 10,000 supporters then they will review it to see if it could become an official lego set, plus Continue reading →
I may or may not have a few relatives that love themselves some Caddys so I got an extra laugh out of this. Mackelmore is a weird dude, catchy ass music though. A video with old people on slip and slides and he is dressed as a mariachi for some reason……I like it though. lol
Ok here is part 2 of the meets coverage from Orlando this last Sat. In part one I hit up the Ultimate Auto Vossen Meet, this time it was onto the Nstyle Motorsports meet which was a Scion meet that was open to all makes and models. After meeting up with the Orange FR-S at the Vossen meet and rolling out to the Continue reading →
And now for a post kind of car related, well it is a truck. A truck has wheels, a car has wheels so it is close enough for me. The fing amazing food truck Melissa’s Chicken & Waffles will Continue reading →

Proving how large the internet is I came across this youtube show just the other day that was started way back in 2007 by a couple of guys just like us over in Australia. It all started because I was on my 86 forum and someone asked Continue reading →
If you have an extra 43:22 in your day use it to watch this amazing show. I came across this on Discovery the other night and can’t believe it is at least 6 months old and I never saw it. The show chronicles some of the top shops Continue reading →
Thanks to a user on FT86club I cam across these translated versions of the latest Hot Version 86 battle. Awesome to see the cars on the track doing their thing. This is not the whole video but if they post the rest we Continue reading →
I regularly get asked how I keep my engine bay looking brand new all the time. I came across this video from my new favorite online channel, drive clean on the drive network. I have always been very limited when cleaning my engine, I never actually “wash” the engine with water Continue reading →
Yesterday I came across this post on FT86club about a owner in Ohio that was having his car tuned and during the street tune there was an “issue”. Turned out the issue was the entire car caught on fire. The car was running one of the tuners Continue reading →
So according to the new in California there was a “flash mob” of cars that took over a Krispy Kream. Actually it was just a meet but that does not sound as cool as a flash mob I guess. If it actually was a flash mob that would have Continue reading →
