Lone Star Throwdown 2017 Conroe TX PAS 78

2017 marked the 6th Anniversary for Lone Star Throwdown (LST), a show that started with humble beginnings by the two creators, Todd “Radar” Hendrex and Lonnie Ford in 2012. Presented by Power Stroke Enginuities (PSE) and taking place in the city of Conroe, not only does this show draw a huge amount of vehicles from the state of Texas where it’s held, but from all over the United States, Mexico and even Canada. Most attendees post pictures and videos of their “LST Crunch” getting their trucks or cars ready, and then of the actual journey. Not too many shows out there have the following like this one does, considering it's only in it’s 6th year. This year the club that Lonnie and Radar are also members of, Negative Camber, celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a party on Saturday night, drawing members from all across the globe, including some from as far away as Australia. Their club even took home the “Club Participation” award for having the most members showing vehicles at the show, and in fact the trophy was taken back to Australia where I’m sure it was greeted with a warm reception by those who couldn’t make it.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2011

  The unofficial kick-off to the season always starts with Tokyo Auto Salon where we report on what the considered hot in the JDM market. Three massive halls at the Makuhari Messe Convention Center are jammed with row upon row of insane builds from the intense to the absolutely ridiculous! But beyond the cars themselves are a wealth of activities, new parts to shop for and of course hundreds of JDM hotties wearing next to nothing.     For 2011, what we expected is coming true and truth be told we’re not thrilled about some of the trends. Dozens of…

Scion recently teamed up with R/C company HPI to throw the first-ever FR-S Cup. Held at Toyota’s Torrance, California, corporate headquarters, this just-for-fun event featured a variety of FR-S-based R/C races, an FR-S R/C car show, and even appearances from Scion luminaries like Stephen Papadakis and Five Axis’ Troy Sumitomo. Prizes were awarded throughout the day – we didn’t win anything, but given that we didn’t completely embarrass ourselves during our competition heat, we came out feeling like winners anyway.…
