2013 Formula Drift season kicked off this past Saturday to a sold out crowd in Long Beach. Thousands of fans gathered as the the worlds best in drift battled it out for the top spot. After a long day of smoked tires, Daijiro Yoshihara in his 240SX came out on top, followed closely by Vaughn Gittin Jr. in second and Chris Forberg in third.
The Slammed Society Car Show and Vendor Village were a great way to kill some time in between rounds.
Quite a few of them fitted with AP Racing Big Brake Kits
All in all, a great day in Long Beach. Congratulations to the Formula Drift crew celebrating their 10th year. Round 2 will be held in Braselton, GA on May 10 & 11. Visit the Formula Drift site for more info: http://www.formulad.com/

We have a very interesting special guest on the Dyno today getting some baseline runs in… Although we can’t exactly say what is in store for this little pick up…. Just know there is some serious heat in store for this pick up by way of Truckin’ magazine.
Keep your ear’s to the ground because after everything is said and done with, this little truck is going to be making a lot of noise.

There aren’t many Mustang’s that impress me as of late, but this little red pony from our pals over at Street Scene could very well be the perfect California cruiser.
The mustang’s stance has been addressed as well. This pony is sitting on a set of H&R springs and a set of 20″ wheels all around. Tire sizes are as follows (Rear: 275/35/20 and front 255/35/20) Not only does this stang have the perfect wheel fitment on there but it also has some substantial tire meat under it’s feet.
Inside, the mustang also got a custom treatment.
The interior has been we-wrapped in a gorgeous white leather by Katzkin which makes this thing even more stunning with the top down.
Needless to say, this mustang is gorgeous!!! and to top it off, it’s 6-speed with a V6!!! yeah I know crazy right?!!!
Now that Procharger has released its V6 mustang supercharger kit that puts out over 470HP (video here) it almost makes this pony a must buy for the meager selling price of $24,000.
Give the boys over a Street Scene a call for more details on this gorgeous pony.

The 2012 Nissan Altima fresh from the factory is already a pretty good looking coupe. It pays homage to its Z big brothers and at the same time has a lot of character of its own. We wanted to keep that character in mind when we were developed our NISSAN ALTIMA STILLEN FRONT LIP. We felt like we accomplished this pretty well, but when we found out this morning that 66MVP was outfitting their ALTIMA’s in their showroom with our LIP KIT we were ecstatic!!! Needless to say, we took this as a HUUUUGE compliment.
As you can see from the picture above, the STILLEN equipped ALTIMA coupe looks classy and mean at the same time.
If you happen to be in the New Jersey area, make sure you pay the boys over at 66AUTOMALL a visit. Not only do they have a wide selection of new and pre-owned NISSAN’s, KIA’s, and SUZUKI’s to choose from but they also happen to have a very one of a kind GTR for sale.

One of the most common questions and fears we get from customers or potential customers is a valid one: “Will adding aftermarket parts void my warranty?”
It’s a scary premise, and unfortunately one some uneducated dealerships seem to drill into their customers, that using non-OEM parts or upgrades will void the factory warranty, and leave you the new car owner to fend for yourself, without support from the vehicle maker.
Thankfully this isn’t the case, and there is legislation in place to protect you, the consumer, from these types of situations. The Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act was passed way back in 1975 to combat this exact subject, and ensure that you have the freedom to choose aftermarket parts and upgrades without having your warranty stripped or voided.
Dealerships and car companies are required to prove that any modification of the vehicle with aftermarket parts is the cause of the failure. Read more

Keeping an eye to the future includes everything from new vehicles, new products, and even new enthusiasts. This past Wednesday, December 15th, Steve Millen and the STILLEN crew delivered a modified Nissan Altima to the Coastline ROP Automotive Technology class at Laguna Hills High School.
This car was one of the main display vehicles for Nissan when they released the new model Altima, and was also an R&D project and show car for STILLEN for many years. The car has been outfitted with a long list of performance modifications, suspension improvements, brake upgrades, aesthetic enhancements by way of a body kit and custom interior. The car is even sporting a 3 part paint job featuring Lamborghini Orange. Read more
