Hecdws’s Clubloose Drift Corolla GTS

I met up today with Hector to get some shots of the Corolla before the drift season begins and it eats some wall :) I always appreciate a non 240 drifter out there ripping it up; all the Toyoteros also enjoy seeing a non drag Corolla getting some love on drift course. He has created a nice little drift machine on a stock 4AGE engine. I look forward to seeing Hector out there in the Corolla as he builds his 240 to drift next season, making all the other AE86 drift clan happy to see another one getting sideways in a 1987 Toyota Corolla GTS.

Stevie Tech Motorworks

Visited Stevie Tech to view his incredible old school Toyota builds , and see what other things he has brewing in the shop. I must admit seeing a Mazdaspeed Protege being built to 600hp is not an everyday build and the Integra is also going to reach the 600hp mark. The star of the shop of course is his own car the TE72 that is gunning for 8′s , hopefully when he is not building other cars he can get his car to the track to shine. If you are looking for a clean powerful build in your Yota , check out Stevie Tech.

Thanks for letting see your builds

RPM/ UTI MEET ORLANDO

Melvin Portoreal did it again with his great coverage of the RPM/UTi meet in Orlando Florida.  The cars look great out there with Wringo and Kam holding it down in their ViP GS’s . LibertyViP was in the area getting their tan away from the cold weather of the Tristate area and meeting with the Liberty Chapter in the Southeast. The tuners came out in full force with some great looking Kouki 240′s representing and some sick track cars from Performance Race Solutions. Props to RPM for another great event and UTi holding it down as usual for the community and their future technicans.
