Nextmod decided to be patient this year and hold their BBQ a little later than they had previous years.
This patience was rewarded with a stellar turnout (as always) with the quality and quantity of cars coming out rivalling a lot of the local parking lot shows in the area.
Everyone knows these BBQs are a good time because what can really go wrong when you’ve got great weather, great cars and free food?
Whether you stay all day or only for a few hours you won’t get bored or hungry on the date there is an NM BBQ.
The drift cars at the BBQ were pretty easily identifiable, one because I know a couple of them and two because of their copious use of zip ties.
I got pictures of most of the drifters who came out other than Anthony who I guess I am subliminally upset with for bending a Falken Hanabi.
I came expecting to see two new things from the Scraped Crusaders crew and they didn’t disappoint.
Kia / Hyundai
Lot’s of Kia Souls and Hyundai Gens at the BBQ, I still have not seen someone slam a Soul more than a little over an inch… yet.
Nissan and Lexus
Mazda and Mitsubishi
Many thanks to Peter and the Nextmod crew for putting this BBQ on year after year.
Also thanks to all of the other shop owners in the area for letting us take your spots all day.
See you next year.
thx for the pix!
subie scoop FTW!
Well it only took stance 2 yrs to take a picture of the Kias, even when the Krown Lakeshore winner was a Kia Forte. But at least it was my wifes car! Give us time, we are new to the tuner scene, and most of us have never tuned a car before, plus all the vehicles are still under warranty. I know that probably ever other make has an advantage and every single ride there was Awesome in its own way, we all do our own little things to make our ride unique. We may not yet be some of the coolest rides out there but we are coming, and will represent KDM every chance we get. I resent the inch comment, cause my Pink Tornado Endcancer.ca Soul is dropped 2 inches…lol. Right now i think our big issue is finding the equiptmemt to modify, no coilovers available, tough to find headers to compare quality when there is only 2, but dont worry Peter is working on it and has been Awesome at helping bring us forward! See you next year, and we will be at Importexpo again, and hopefully at Importfest!
Hey Rob, I’ve actually taken a few pics of Kia’s a couple Fortes and a recent boosted Rio at Importfest.
The only reason I thought your car was only lowered an inch was because the Eibach kit is the only one I know of for the Souls and it’s rated at 1-1.5″
We own a Soul actually so I watch them closely, this is one I was able to dig up soon after we got ours:
Great coverage man!
[…] Local even in Toronto . My zenki is in it . Check it out – Stance Is Everything – It's all about how it sits […]
@ DaveT No worries, we are new and it takes time for us, it was actually the fact that you didnt post a pic of the winning Koup ( or any Kias) from the Krown Lakeshore event. I am not saying it was wrong, it just made me realize how new we are to the tuner scene, and how hard we are going to work to get recognition within a group of Manufacturers who have decades more experience than we do, even our sister company has sponsored CSCS, and yet I cant get Kia to do anything. Trying to be the voice for Kia is extremely hard when you cant get anyone else besides a bunch of hardcores to believe in you. Even Hyundai now has a performance parts division, and may I add he was a driving force at Kia when the Soul and Koup were released, now they’ve got someone useless that hasnt done squat in over a year! I will carry the burden for as long as I have to, but one day we will be a mainstay in the tuner scene.
Fuuuuuuu, I should have put my waffles on. Atleast for one side, lol. Thanks for the pics Dave.
by any chance anyone know the spec’s on the fitment and rims on the black ek civic? love it.
@C Cooper He told me but I forget… I know they are tunershop lips though I will see if I can find out
@ Cool Kids stop running into walls… or run into walls more
@SC I’m sure you will get some good shots at h20i
Red A3, SIIIIIIICK i dont even wanna know how much it costs cuz id cry at the number lol
It’s pretty funny how more and more beat up our cars get after each drift season.
Still good to see the candy teal wheels out and about on the mazda. I Shot those 😛 Also, the white mazda with the burgundy wheels, More info on color? pics?
Anyone needs and powder done, Holla [email protected]
Jason that one is mine 🙂 it’s not powder though
It looks Awesome man! The color of the wheels caught my eye immediately 😛 This past weekend I was experimenting with candies 😛 Normally with all candies we shoot, we use a silver reflective base coat, Like on the teal ones. But I powdered my intake manifold candy red with a black base coat, and it looks almost identical to your wheels 😛 I love it haha (i’m a huge sucker for bugundy) Especially on white, I was in an accident last month, so I didn’t make it out to this even with the SC guys, but next year I’ll be out in the MKIV lol Ironically I’m painting white as well, with the same color wheels hahah but flat white 😛
Glad you like it I was going for something different without screaming look at me I am different. If you were not a painter I would tell you the color 😉
Are you powdering a car or did I read that wrong
Read it wrong, powdering the wheels, painting the car 😛
