SEMA 2014 Las Vegas Gran Turismo Awards Best Asian Import Garrett GReddy Nissan GTR

GRAN TURISMO AWARDS
ARGUABLY THE BEST PARTY OF THE WEEK, industry magnates touched down at Drai’s Nightclub for an evening of awards and killer music, courtesy of punk-rock legends Social Distortion. Celeb sightings from the PASMAG crew included Kei Muira, Porsche driver Patrick Long testing the simulator, Kenny Tran, Fredric Aasbo, and Danny George, who we ran into earlier that day to discuss some exciting 2015 plans. Sitting at the GoPro booth throughout the week, the “Rampage” Camaro (pictured, above) built by Roadster Shop took the GT Award for Best in Show, and after seeing it up close, it’s obvious why. It has the perfect amount of old school flare, sports car looks, and modern widebody elements that make it easy on the eyes. Underneath, the 750 horses push from the LS7 motor through a sideways-mounted transmission(!)
because the car sits so low, and everything is built for a full-on track assault. We can’t wait to give this a test in the virtual world.

SlammedEnuff 2016: Altanta, GA

They came from all parts of the region with one question in mind. Are they SlammedEnuff? To people on the outside aka Non-Car-Types; the whole idea of a slammed vehicle makes no sense but for those of us that are a part of the scene, the idea of a car sitting on stock wheels which with no real mods is just too much to bear which is why an event like the SlammedEnuff car show at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross, GA on Saturday, April 9, 2016 was such a thrill. Hundreds came to hard park, chill with…

Drivers from four states showed up to get some much needed seat time and bake in the heat of the day. 3rd Gear Pulls were a must to tame the course layout for the event, however the drivers ran out of tires and energy before the set shut down around 7 o'clock. Congrats to all the Winners. The KMS Drift Championship will be back at AMS on September 15th, the…
