Pixel Car Racer

There’s so much craze going on with the mobile Pokemon Go game. There’s a cool car based RPG game that lets you buy, build and race your car. A friend from R/T Tuning actually posted somethign about it up and that’s how it came to light for me. There’s also a story mode but I don’t know what the details are on that yet since I just started and haven’t unlocked it yet. Available for download from iTunes and on Google Play.

Extreme Autofest – July 30th, 2016!

eaf

Being an automotive enthusiast and living in Southern California, you get spoiled. By spoiled I mean you don’t really need to wait for months at a time for an event to popup because there’s probably a couple happening every weekend. With car meets happening almost any night of the week and events happening left and right you also get the choice of which to attend. Choosing may be hard but it shouldn’t be.

If you are free this weekend, head to Qualcomm Stadium and check out Extreme Autofest. You’ll see some extreme builds from trucks, to bikes, to cars, and the girls are pretty extreme too. Extreme Autofest tends to have fun with the models and there’s usually some type of theme that they do. One time there was a hero theme and girls dressed up as their favorite hero/heroine. If you aren’t all about the models, then head over to the stage and catch a glimpse of Mr. X-Z, Xzibit getting the crowd going.

Spocom This Weekend!

In the SoCal car show scene, Spocom is definitely the pinnacle of shows. This show brings out the best cars and has a great atmosphere. This year is the 10 year anniversary so it’s a pretty big deal with lots of teams coming back out that haven’t shown in a while. What I’m looking forward to is seeing and talking with people that I don’t get to see that often. This will also be the first Spocom for me with my own car since 2009. That year I had owned the FD for a few weeks only and only had wheels and a lip on it.

Here’s a vid of the rollout after the show that year. Can you spot my FD?
