Hyundai Genesis Drift Videos Korean Style

We all know that Rhys Millen was the one who popularized Hyundai Genesis as drifting car in the US and on the web. But, the car was manufactured in South Korea and I don't see any video of drifting scenes in South Korea; there are some, but not concrete as the drift videos of United States and Japan.



I am glad that I saw videos like this; well, besides video from D1 and Formula D of Japan and US. The videos are homegrown focusing only in Hyundai Genesis; modification and the driving style are authentic South Korean style.

Hope to see pimped Hyundai Starex or blinged Korean SUV, Korean style.

2012 Honda CRV - Japanese Version for Asian/European Market

2012 Honda CRV - Japanese Version for Asian/European Market, Please visitwww.easternmotors.info

Please be patient while the video is buffering.

Finally the official image and video of the Japanese version of Honda CR-V is already released. We all know that the US version was the first to be released their images, and the date of of the official release of their model will be next week. But, problem is, the said version will not reached the ASIAN showrooms which I think that we have a problem there, or if you are going to buy one, you need to go to the gray market.

Honda did modification on the vehicle especially its design — The aerodynamics. Times like these where fuel-efficient is the name of the game; Honda lowered the overall height of the 2012 CRV body, a smooth appearance of its front, and a new tailight was very apparent on this vehicle — to eliminate drag or resistance that may cause additional load to the vehicle. The design was tested on a wind-tunnel which is also used by the Engineers in Formula-1 when developing the bodies of their cars. It is very apparent that if you saw an actual 2012 Honda CRV, the first impression would be that the vehicle is small. But, don't be deceived because once you are already inside you will be amazed that the interior is roomy — Same concept in the 2012 Honda Civic.

2012 Honda CRV Japanese Version — Engine

The vehicle comes with two engine option. The first one would be a 2.0 liter front-wheel drive — R20A Engine —and a 2.4 liter all-wheel drive — K24A Engine; if you are going to use this one for city-living, I'll choose the 2.0 liter engine. Quite dissapointed though because I'm expecting a new engine from Honda that they will introduced on this model — Like a diesel engine? But, a CVT or Continuous Variable Transmission is offered only in the 2.0 engine, compare to the 2.4 that still offers an automatic transmission — Kinda gas-guzzler for me though.

One thing that I like about this vehicle is the push-start key button as a standard — as if you are inside of a racing car and a sleek design on its dashboard.

I hope that Honda Philippines will bring this model "as-is" No strip-down of accessories and going to sell them separately. I'll also recommend to hold your budget if you are eyeing for a new CRV, just wait for this model to arrive in showrooms and not to be fooled by the sales-agent that they have already the 2012 Honda CRV in which they fail to deliver, all just a promise just to cope up with their sales.

Happy Shopping for a new vehicle!!

The demand for the 2012 Toyota Fortuner is rising — Everynight I'll see a transporter carrying loads of 2012 Toyota Fortuner which are to be delivered to the customers who ordered and patiently waited for their arrival.

So, you already have that dreamed Toyota Fortuner, or you had already and you want to do something about it and you want to add a little spice on it. You have an option; if you want to upgrade the sound-system, a show-car type, or modify it to the rugged off-road look. If you are living in an urban-area and you are using it as a daily-driven vehicle, I recommend to choose the sound-setup— modifying its audio system and installing subwoofers —and show-car type setup.

One thing that is a must for all enthusiast whenever they are going to pimped their cars is to change its wheels, or "shoes" — urban word in the US. From a descent 17-19" rims used for off-road, or 20-22" blinged-rims as shown in hip-hop videos.

One of the most popular and the easiest way to tricked-out your Toyota Fortuner is setting up its audio-system at the same time having it blinged — Changing the wheels with chrome finished rims.

Investing on massive subswoofers, high-end speakers and headunits, and high-wattage amplifiers are way to go.

This Toyota Fortuner is using a Firland Audio; and observed that its using a clear-light tailight which was customized. Notice also the paint, the paint here are in pearl option.





Addition to those modification installing a Toyota Fortuner bodykits is also an option; this will definitely be an eye-catcher on the road, at the same time to girls.

All-Aluminum 1965 Ford Mustang GT350 with Nissan RB Series Engine

The last time that I heard of an all-aluminum body car that was crafted by a Filipino was a Toyota Corona RT140 chassis on a Nissan SR20DE engine competing in a drift event.


This video was taken way back in 2009 in drift-event; video was taken by my friend.

This 2011, another car was transformed its body to all-aluminum state; that car was an iconic and a beast, a 1965 Ford Mustang GT-500 model. This car is owned by a known journalist here in the Philippines. This is his project-car.

History of this car was; the owner got this car on a pig-pen, in a bad-body situation — I mean the car was already decapitated with rust and the only the resolution is for pattern purposes to the material that they going to used to the body. Challenged because someone told him that Filipino's cannot do it; so, he pursue to transform this heavy beast into a lightweight form .

One thing that I'm dissapointed is the engine; they used an RB series engine which is found on Nissan Skyline models — at least they've used a used V8 engines from previous models of Mustang. Maybe the owner is following the foostep of the Mustang in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift movie. But still, it is all-aluminum body Mustang which is very rare.

Hope I can see rare modification in the future though.

Accessorizing your Honda’s Interior



Honda has been producing some of the most popular passenger cars in the world for many years, not to mention many top-selling vehicles of other types such as the Honda CRV. One of the reasons frequently cited for these persistently high sales is the tremendous number of repeat customers who purchase vehicles only if they have that Honda nameplate attached. Repeat business has been a result of customer satisfaction, particularly with low vehicle price points, sleek designs, and good fuel efficiency. Still, even with added features such as digital dash displays and other modern add-ons, Civics, Accords, and other Honda vehicles aren’t typically tricked out in their interiors as much as higher-end vehicles and luxury cars are. Fortunately, with some intelligently applied aftermarket upgrades, you can spice up your Honda’s interior space in no-time.



Let’s say you own a Civic and want to use some well-placed Honda car accessories to improve your car’s interior. Since a Civic is quite small, using internal storage systems can help to maximize interior space. While you can certainly load a lot into your truck, storage unit accessories can help you collect odds, ends, and other loose articles and keep them tightly packed for a neater inside space in your car. To help keep your car’s interior cleaner, use a roof rack or other exterior storage accessory in order to keep the interior less clogged with items that don’t need to be within the cabin at any particular time.





Other Honda car accessories are more useful if you own an older Accord, Civic, or other Honda vehicle. Over time, interior upholstery can degrade, whether it’s from overexposure to sunlight throughout the years, rips and tears in the fabric, or something else entirely like juice and soda stains. For a full-blown fix that is somewhat prohibitively expensive, you can go ahead and install brand new seats. Just remove the stock Honda seats and install a set you like, such as brand new Honda racing seats. If you’d rather save money and tons of effort, however, simple Honda seat covers would do. Just find a set in the style you desire, get them measured to the dimensions of your car’s seats, and snugly place them over the current seats in your car. That way, you can dramatically improve the appearance of your car’s interior without draining half your bank account doing so. Nice touches such as designer shift knobs, interior LED lighting, and replacement floor mats can also help finish off the upgraded look.



Just in case appearance and storage aren’t issues in your car’s case, there’s another commonplace issue that may need to be resolved, and can be done so rather easily. Sometimes, Honda interiors, like the interiors of most other vehicles, can begin to smell over time. Whether its general dinginess or the specific smell of rotted fruit melted into the car’s interior carpet, you don’t want to have to deal with unfortunate scents for longer than necessary. Bad smells can not only ruin your daily driving experience, but they can seriously devalue your car’s worth come resale time.



To avoid said results, you can use an air freshener for more minor smells, and replacement upholstery, floor mats, and more for more serious ones. Sometimes, you simply need to enhance your car’s ventilation system as well. By removing mildew floor mats, improving that interior ventilation, and stringing an air freshener around the windshield mirror, you won’t have to bear the burden of a smelly Civic or other Honda interior again, as oftentimes that issue is worse to deal with than any storage issue or lack of aesthetic appeal.
