The renowned Mr. Stephen Brooks recently took a trip over the Atlantic to team up with Gardella Racing to film the New Jersey leg of the Formula Drift Championship. If you haven’t had an opportunity to see what Mr. Brooks has to offer, I encourage you to do so. Got my blood pumpin’.

Two three gallon air tanks, a pair of Viair 444s, a VU4 valve manifold, the Accuair management ECU, two water traps, and a collection of 1/4″ airline all neatly packaged into the tight confines of the MINI Clubman hatch thanks to the AccuAir eXo-mount. The compressors hum quietly away atop their vibration damping mounts as you fill your tanks in anticipation of playing with the switches. The rocker switch and touch pad give off a soft glow in the driver’s quarter.
VIP Modular hosted a fundraiser this weekend in an attempt to raise money for Japan’s earthquake back in March. As you know, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake shook Japan to the ground just 3 months ago, the 5th largest earthquake the world has seen since 1900. The damages caused by the earthquake are estimated at almost $310 billion dollars.
Of course, every penny counts, so VIP modular gathered up the Southern Californian car community for a get together this morning.
“The Gauntlet” – Seems like a pretty ominous title for the fourth round of the Formula Drift series right? Well let me say, the ominous title proved to be a perfect forcasting of the event that ensued last weekend.
Hold up, hold up, hold up….
An S2000 on CCWs and a stickerbombed spraycanned WRX with Rotas? On MY StanceWorks?!
Well guess what, they’re the Kings of Miami, and they’re doin’ it right.
Alright, so they’re not from Miami. They don’t live there either. They’re actually from Orlando, but that’s not really the point.
I’ve done a lot of traveling in the past two years, almost all of which has been in the name of StanceWorks.
