Break the Stereotype: Eduardo Pineda’s 2007 Bagged Subaru STI

Eduardo_Pineda_Bagged_Subaru_STI_COVER

Have you ever sat back and thought about what YOU liked? If you ever take the time to do so, you may be shocked to realize that everyone outside of your mind has influenced you in one way or another. It’s not a bad thing, really, but it can lead to a lot of stereotypes being developed which can be a bad thing. Consider the word “stance”: now that I’ve said it, stop reading this article and think about how you define term “stance”. Are you done yet? I bet you had the same mental picture as I did: huge wheels, massive camber, and beat fenders. That is the common stereotype we all get from a “stance car” and even as I conducted the interview with Eduardo, the owner of the vehicle before you, my face cringed as he mentioned the very word “stance”. As we continued to talk, however, I really opened my mind and thought about all the right ways a stereotype can and be broken and Eduardo Pineda’s Subaru takes any negativity surrounding the word “stance” and makes the viewer reconsider their own prejudices.

Rotiform’s BOSS R8

Each year, an automotive event unlike anything else occurs around Lake Worthersee in Austria.

This year, Rotiform reached out to @AccuAir to be a part of something very special: a Prior Design widebody R8 that is themed based off the heralded Boss M1 livery. The R8 is equipped with AccuAir e-Level paired with HP Drivetech air struts built on Bilstein Clubsports and handles just as good as it looks. Rotiform also mounted up a set of custom @Cobraseats with Rotiform logo stitched to give it a personal touch.

To finish it off, Rotiform equipped the R8 with their new CCV’s.

20×9.5 in the front and 20×13 in the rear.

Formula Drift Long Beach 2015 Official Coverage

FD LB 1

Formula Drift Long Beach is where you get to witness all of the hard work and training the drivers and teams have been doing all year long in preparation for the new season. New liveries, new cars, new builds, new everything and it’s very exciting. Aside from all the new happenings going on Long Beach is a fantastic location and track. The track is very tight and very fast, cars are pushing harder and harder on each run getting closer and closer to each and every wall. The fans are right there in the action, with great proximity seating you will practically be covered in rubber by the end of the day. There is always so much to do, even when cars aren’t skidding across the track. One could check out one of the many vendors occupying the paddocks, or even walk to the other side of the track and see all the cars in the Offset Kings Car Show. Fans can also see almost every car in the competition up close and personal. Most teams just park their cars right by their trailers and fans can walk right up to them, check them out, and meet the drivers most of the time. FD Long Beach is one hell of an event to kick off the Formula Drift season.

Water by the Bridge 2015 Official Coverage (Louisville, KY)

WBTB_2015_Canibeat_Cover

Since Canibeat started in 2009, there are always certain shows we make a top priority to cover each year. Water by the Bridge has been on that list for the last few years for us but has been a must-attend show for those in or around the Midwest and southern parts of the country for much longer. It’s so much more than a show, however; it’s a goal and a deadline for people to have their winter projects finished. Winter can be brutal but Water By The Bridge is always a beacon of hope that show season is upon us.

Water by the Bridge, hosted by Grossman Tuning, is held in downtown Louisville at Waterfront Park and is the official opener for the season in this part of the country. We hope you enjoy our coverage this year and stay tuned for more from around the country for 2015!

Offset Kings 2015 Official Coverage (Long Beach, California)

Offset_Kings_2015_COVER

Offset Kings Long Beach is considered to be the first big car show of the year, and it takes  place right in the middle of Formula Drift Long Beach,which is  the first Formula Drift event of the year. Offset Kings also happens to be my favorite shows of the year. You get  a chance to catch up with everyone and see how builds have dramatically progressed and changed since previous years. This is also where a lot of cars make their public debuts and shake up the car community. The location is great, nestled right up against the water, it makes for amazing weather, and of course being right in the middle of Formula Drift theres always something going on. Needless to say I look forward to this show every year, and this year did not disappoint.

When Dreams Come True: Dillon’s Evolving Acura RSX

RSX

Think back: what was the first car that made you stop and admire its beauty? Could it have been the subtle curvature of the 1970’s Porsche 911 or was it something simpler like the sensation of a WRX rumbling its way down the avenue? For myself, it started with the Lamborghini Countach S, with its quintessential 80’s straight-line styling and hole-shot style wheels. There was something about the way it looked; as if it was flying through traffic, even when standing utterly still or hanging above my bed at the young age of 3. I have been fortunate enough to see and experience a handful and every time it brings me to a place of pure automotive bliss. Not the elitist lifestyle I see woven into the culture today, but the feeling of admiration and marvel in not just the artistic machine in front of me but all automotive artwork in its purest. This is how Dillon feels about the Acura RSX, Honda’s last Integra and the muse to his love of all things automotive.
